Dr. Zia Stratos, MD, MSc, BA, ANutr


Dr. Zia is a U.S. trained Medical Doctor and U.K. certified Registered Associate Nutritionist. Her academic career began at Georgetown University in Washington D.C., where she majored in Psychology and went on to study Medicine. Working in US hospitals, Dr. Zia was repeatedly faced with the health consequences of a poor diet and lifestyle. Convinced that prevention is key, she decided to complete a MSc in Clinical and Public Health Nutrition at UCL in London. Her research on Diet and Autoimmunity is now published in a well-known medical journal.

Dr. Zia is an Integrative Nutritionist, Medical Doctor, Functional Medicine Practitioner, and Intuitive Eating Counselor. She is Head of our Nutrition Team at the Galen Clinic and works seamlessly with Dr Nathan Curran.

Dr. Zia believes in healing the gut using food and lifestyle first, she has many years of experience counselling individuals on how to form healthier, sustainable habits. Her approach is collaborative and integrative, looking at the whole body’s ecosystem to identify root-causes of symptoms. Beyond nutrition, she takes a mind-body approach, using mindfulness, relaxation practices, nature, and movement as medicine.

Despite her American accent, Dr. Zia is half-French and half-Dutch. She grew up in Africa, Asia and then the U.S.A, and then lived in Brazil and Spain before marrying her husband and settling in the U.K. She speaks 6 languages, loves yoga, and recently gave birth to her son.
