What is Nutrition?



Book an Appointment

Nutrition is optimum nourishment

As a clinical Nutritionist, I know that nothing is more important for Complete Health than giving your body the right kind of fuel. However, there is no ‘one fits all’ approach to diet. My aim is to provide you with nutritional recommendations that support the uniqueness of your system and take into consideration your personal lifestyle and dietary needs. Food and nutritional supplements are effective in the treatment of many health conditions and Clinical Nutrition is a cornerstone of all naturopathic treatment plans. However, if you want to really focus on diet and nutrition, you have the option to book a clinical Nutrition-only appointment too.

What happens during a Nutrition Consultation?

A Nutritional consultation is an in-depth personal health assessment, which will assess your health in a holistic way.  I will talk to you about your most important health concern, as well as assess other areas of your health, that might contribute to your health issues. I might use iridology, nail & tongue analysis, as well as a number of other tests, including blood tests, to provide an optimal health assessment for you.

I will provide you with a customised treatment plan, taking into account any medication or other treatments you are on, to ensure the treatment will be safe along with them. I will also keep your personal needs like busy lifestyle and budget in mind, when formulating your treatment plan.

The treatment plan can include dietary recipes and handouts, well as lifestyle recommendations and specific supplements or herbal medicines. Each treatment plan is tailor made for you.

To ensure the optimum treatment for you , I will map out your healing journey  and use up to date research, to further assess your health state. I might also refer you for regular or functional pathology testing, to better assess your health state.

Why would I see a Nutritionist?

Your ability to enjoy life is directly related to your state of health. Feeling fatigued or worried, having digestive problems or menstrual complaints, headaches or troubles sleeping is not normal. These are signs that you are not functioning at your optimum. As a Nutritionist, my aim is to strengthen your innate ability to heal and help you return to  a state of Complete Health and wellbeing.
