Nutrition

All people, of all ages and careers can see a nutritionist for a range of health complications. I will work closely with you and you will be treated as an individual depending on your health requirements and your lifestyle.

What is nutritional medicine?

Nutritional Medicine is an alternative therapy that compliments conventional medicine and is a holistic form of therapy that aims to treat the whole person, this includes an individual's PHYSICAL + MENTAL + EMOTIONAL + SPIRITUAL wellbeing. 

Consuming a balanced diet is vital for optimal health providing our bodies with the essential building blocks, nutrients, to grow and function. When our bodies are nourished and in balance we remain healthy and absent from disease.

 

As a clinical nutritionist I aim to Identify the root of the cause; assessing not only what is happening in the body but why in order to treat and restore balance.

Holistic Nutritionist vs Dietician vs Health Coach

All this can get a little bit confusing. Each field practices in different ways; they have their own training, philosophies and education pathways, although the main mission of all professions is to achieve better overall health. 

Holistic Nutritionist

A holistic nutritionist practices evidence based medicine through a holistic approach to health and wellness. A holistic approach to health takes into account the whole person - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.

A nutritionist practices individualised care, as no two people are the same and focus on achieving the individual's health goals and reach optimal health.

A nutritionist aims to find the root of the cause, recognising that disease is complex and multifactorial caused by a myriad of factors.

Often nutritionists work in private practices or in multi-modality clinics.

Dietician

A Dietician also practices evidence based medicine, yet in an allied health setting and works more with population health. Dieticians have a diet only approach, to treat a range of conditions and provide tailored diet plans to assist in reaching the clients health goals. Often dieticians work on population health in hospitals and nursing homes.

Health Coach

A Health Coach practices holistic health and wellbeing by motivating, educating and supporting clients to achieve their basic health goals. There is no diagnosis involved.

Over all lifestyle and wellbeing is assessed to help clients achieve better overall health through the initiation of behavioural changes.
