The key to good health
lies on your kitchen table

The kitchen table is the heart of the home, where food is central to celebrations, family gatherings and everyday life. But instead of enjoying food for the natural wonder it is, meal-times have become stressful and challenging for many – fraught with confusion and guilt.

New diets hit the headlines daily, while misleading product labels make false promises that lead us away from health. Nutritional medicine is the practice of using food as medicine – optimising nutrition and health by returning to natural, organic, wholefoods, as nature intended.

Empowering you to better health

As a Nutritionist, I am here to lead you back to health with the healing benefits of real food. I aim to cut through the confusion, educate you about nutritional medicine, and empower you to make the best food choices for you and your loved ones.

I personally understand the confusion of modern-day food choices, and the pain of living with compromised digestive health.  I battled with the symptoms of food intolerances, IBS and fructose malabsorption, as well as hormonal imbalance, PCOS and hypothyroidism for many years. Instead of eating for health, I ate from a place of anxiety and confusion about my body.

My journey into nutritional medicine allowed me to improve my health naturally, and also the health of my son who unfortunately inherited many of his mother’s health complaints. It was through this experience I discovered my passion for supporting the health of others, including families and children. Now I’m here to share these lessons with you.

Nutritional Medicine and your health

I work with people of all ages, with a wide range of medical challenges and health goals, and I tailor my services to the individual needs of each client.

Nutritional Medicine provides a naturopathic and whole-of-person approach to proactive and therapeutic health care. Your initial consultation is a comprehensive and detailed session in which we discuss your story, analyse your medical history and eating habits, conduct a physical examination, and request pathology or other functional health testing. Evidence-based strategies for long-term health, including meal planning, nutritional supplements and lifestyle strategies, are then developed to support your goals and individual needs.

“Those who think they have no time for healthy eating, will sooner or later have to find time for illness.”
