Orla Stone, Dietitian and Nutritionist
BSc and Dip in Human Nutrition and Dietetics
I qualified as a dietitian from Trinity College Dublin in 2001 and since then I have enjoyed a varied and challenging career. Having worked for over 20 years, firstly in the NHS and then in the private sector, I have been able to see the benefit that nutrition can have on a person’s mental and physical well-being.
While working in the NHS I covered areas including gastroenterology, allergy, oncology, cardiology, stroke, neonatology, epilepsy and the ketogenic diet. I was privileged to have worked with some of the top London consultants and to have been at the forefront of current research.
I now work in private practice where I have developed my interest in gut health, with a particular focus on the importance of the gut-brain-axis and its role in mental wellness and physical health. I also focus on sustainable eating which is critically important for the future of the planet; irritable bowel syndrome; cancer prevention and overall nutritional balance. I regularly work with large organisations to provide nutritional wellness sessions to their employees and teams.
Since 2021 I have had the pleasure to be part of a team of individuals in developing food and beverage concepts to improve human health whilst ensuring a sustainable method of production.
I partnered with Matthew Radley and Associates as the team dietitian in 2019. One of the values at MRA is positive energy, resilience and well-being. It is wonderful to be part of a company that realises the importance of nutrition in helping to strengthen mental and physical resilience and overall well-being.
