A properly qualified clinical nutritionist has completed a Bachelor of Health Sciences (BHSc) or Masters degree in Nutrition, or Nutritional Medicine, and trained in a clinic for a minimum of 1 year.
Nutritionists understand how the food, beverages, disease and lifestyle can affect the body resulting in undesirable symptoms or health issues. We don't just treat the symptoms, we dig deeper to treat the cause. The treatment combines evidence-based medicine with a natural approach.
A nutritionist focuses on food and considers all aspects of an individual including lifestyle, emotional and physical health. This includes but is not limited to food habits, history of illness, family illnesses, medication and current presenting symptoms. We will ask you a lot of questions in order to get a full picture of your health.
What is a Health & Lifestyle Coach?
It is a multi-faceted practice where links are created with all the gathered information and presenting symptoms, to work on treating the cause of the presenting symptoms, or disease, to improve your health and quality of life.
A Health & Lifestyle Coach is a supportive mentor that helps you to feel your best by working with you, to incorporate food & lifestyle changes and tailor an individualised wellness program that meets your needs.
The wellness plan focuses on food and other important aspects that are interrelated with your health and wellbeing. This includes the mind, body and food.
