Health and well being are essential for quality of life. Negative factors such as psychological stress, poor diet and poor lifestyle choices can lead to functional disorders and chronic diseases.
A clinical nutritionist’s philosophy is simple: optimise health and well being to prevent and manage disease using current scientific evidence and traditional food as medicine techniques.
A clinical nutritionist can help identify underlying causes of dysfunction, nutrient inadequacies or excesses and poor dietary or lifestyle behaviours contributing to poor health. Treatment may involve a combination of dietary modulation, lifestyle modification, education, development of individualised treatment and prevention plans, use of nutritional supplementation and other adjunctive modalities (for example: remedial massage therapy, naturopathy and osteopathy).
Ultimately we are here to motivate individuals to eat better, feel better and achieve optimal health and well being.
As a clinical nutritionist I have a particular interest in the following conditions:
- Digestive disorders (e.g. irritable bowel syndrome, food intolerances or allergies, inflammatory bowel disease, candida, small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)
- Stress or anxiety
- Immune health
- Specific diet regimens (e.g. vegetarian, vegan, food intolerance)
- Weight issues
- Skin conditions (e.g. acne, eczema, dermatitis)
- General disease prevention
