Health Generation

Nutrition Therapy is more than just healthy eating. Dr. Michelle Barrow will assess your diet, health and lifestyle to determine your individual nutritional needs. Nutrition Consultations apply the science of nutrition to the generation of health. Diet, herbs and supplements are recommended to help support your biochemistry and physiology allowing your body to achieve optimum health. Functional tests, including allergy testing, hormone analysis and the renowned digestive stool test are also offered to help find out exactly how your body is functioning.

  • Consultations can be held in Wokingham, Berkshire or High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. They can also be held at your home.
  • Family consultations are an opportunity to understand and meet the nutritional needs for everyone in your family.
  • With extensive experience of teaching, Michelle can also provide lectures and presentations on a variety of research and nutrition related topics for your courses and events.

We are all becoming more aware of the importance of nutrition in health. Food has the ability to promote health or disease and with the growing amount of nutritional information available doing the right thing can be challenging.

The functional approach is a personalised approach that supports physiological processes within the body, such as absoprtion, elimination, detoxification, inflammation and repair. It assesses diet, lifestyle and environment to determine your individual nutritional needs. Nutrition therapy takes a pathophysiological reasoning clinical approach which targets evidence based interventions to your personalised needs. It uses diet, vitamins, herbs and other nutritional products to promote health.

Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.

What Are My Rights?

Under the GDPR, you have the following rights, which we will always work to uphold:

a. The right to be informed about our collection and use of your personal data. This Privacy Policy should tell you everything you need to know, but you can always contact us to find out more or to ask any questions using the details in Part 15.

h. Rights relating to automated decision-making and profiling. We do not use your personal data in this way.

g. For more information about our use of your personal data or exercising your rights as outlined above, please contact us using the details provided..

How Do You Use My Personal Data?

Under the GDPR, HG must always have a lawful basis for using personal data. This may be because the data is necessary for us to contact you, because you have consented to our use of your personal data, or because it is in our legitimate business interests to use it. Your personal data may be used for one or more of the following purposes:

Providing and managing your access to the HG website/s;
Personalising and tailoring your experience with HG;
Supplying products OR services to you.

How Long Will You Keep My Personal Data?

HG will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the reason(s) for which it was first collected. Your personal data will therefore be kept in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

How and Where Do You Store or Transfer My Personal Data?

HG will only store or transfer your personal data within the European Economic Area (the “EEA”). The EEA consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein. This means that your personal data will be fully protected under the GDPR or to equivalent standards by law.

EXCEPT Where we transfer your data to a third party based in the US, this may be protected if they are part of the EU-US Privacy Shield (Google, Microsoft, Zoom, Dropbox). This requires that third party to provide data protection to standards similar to those in Europe. More information is available from the European Commission.

Please contact HG using the contact details for further information about the particular data protection mechanism used by HG when transferring your personal data to a third country.

The security of your personal data is essential to HG, and to protect your data, HG take a number of important measures, including the following:

  • Industry standard encryption of passwords and personal data stored online
  • Use of encryption and access restrictions on cloud storage services
  • End to end encryption available for online conferencing software
  • Industry standard encryption of any sensitive ‘special category’ data

Do You Share My Personal Data?

HG will not share your personal data with other companies in our group or third party companies, unless agreed with you.

HG may sometimes contract with third parties to supply certain products AND/OR services. These may include genetic and functional laboratories. In some cases, those third parties may require access to some of your personal data that HG hold.

If any of your personal data is required by a third party, as described above, HG will take steps to ensure that your personal data is handled safely, securely, and in accordance with your rights, our obligations, and the third party’s obligations under the law. .

If any personal data is transferred outside of the EEA, we will take suitable steps in order to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the GDPR.

In some limited circumstances, HG may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.

How Can I Control My Personal Data?

In addition to your rights under the GDPR,  when you submit personal data via the HG website, you may be given options to restrict our use of your personal data. In particular, we aim to give you strong controls on our use of your data.

You may also wish to sign up to one or more of the preference services operating in the UK: The Telephone Preference Service (“the TPS”), the Corporate Telephone Preference Service (“the CTPS”), and the Mailing Preference Service (“the MPS”). These may help to prevent you receiving unsolicited marketing. Please note, however, that these services will not prevent you from receiving marketing communications that you have consented to receiving.

HG does not engage in unsolicited and bulk direct marketing via email, text or phone. HG will only contact you in response to your queries and requests.

How Can I Access My Personal Data?

If you want to know what personal data HG have about you, you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”.  All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses.  There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover our administrative costs in responding.

HG will respond to your subject access request within one month and, in any case, not more than one month of receiving it. Normally, we aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time.
