BHSc (Nut. Med), A.Nutr, ANTA, ACNEM
I have received a Bachelor of Health Science in Nutritional Medicine, Certification in Plant Based Nutrition, am an Associate Nutritionist with the NSA (Nutrition Society of Australia), Associate membership with ACNEM (Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine), and hold registration with ANTA (Australian Natural Therapists Association).
I have a strong interest in mental health, genetics & methylation, chronic health conditions, and peak performance, and take an evidence based approach to my clients’ health. Individuals are just that, individuals, and acknowledgement of this must be made when deciding on a course of action to take and developing a treatment plan.
With the appearance of Dr. Google and the easy access of health products, it’s common for people to self-diagnose and self-medicate, but this is often done without the full understanding of the body’s biochemistry.
Accurate test interpretation can reveal a considerable amount of information to help identify the cause of illness. There is now specific testing available, which can provide additional detailed analysis of different aspects of the body, which greatly enhances the ability to provide specific and dedicated treatment.
I prefer to take advantages of these tests, when relevant, to avoid guess work prescriptions and to offer a more targeted approach.
In the face of such a structured biochemical approach, I am very down to earth and nurturing, and work WITH patients according to their values, current depth of understanding, and willingness to make changes to their health. A positive therapeutic relationship can provide healing within itself.
