Food As Medicine

The link between what we put in our mouths and our health is becoming increasingly apparent.  However, at the same time, nutrition in the 21st Century has become incredibly confusing.  There are many different points of view, fad diets and opinions on what we 'should' be eating - which can make sifting fact from fiction difficult.  This is where seeing a practitioner can be invaluable.

I am a qualified clinical nutritionist as well as a naturopath - meaning that you get the best of both worlds, and this minimizes the need to see multiple practitioners.  Nutritional support can be effectively combined with herbal medicines to help provide you with the ultimate in high-quality, personalized natural healthcare.

Clinical nutrition recognizes the value of using conscious food choices as an effective way to improve many health conditions.   The foods that you eat, as well as how you absorb and utilize them, play a pivotal role in how you feel, and the level of health you experience.

My approach is to go back to basics, and work with a real-food approach, without the fads or the latest 'craze'.   I realize that life doesn't always go exactly to plan, and working with a clinical nutritionist doesn't mean that you need to miss out on your favourite foods or avoid social situations.  My recommendations are based around the enjoyment of food, as well as sound nutrition principles, and a sensible approach that fits in with your lifestyle.
