What is a Clinical Nutritionist?
Clinical Nutritionists provide tailored advice around food in order to maximise your health and quality of life. Using evidence-informed nutrition practises incorporating natural whole foods, a nutritionist will advise you on how to meet the nutritional needs of your body so you can thrive!
Clinical nutritionists recognise that disease is complex and is caused by a combination of factors. As a result, clients are given individualised care in response to their health. Their goal is to support a healthy energy balance in patients, as well as providing sufficient amounts other nutrients such as protein, vitamins, minerals.
If you’re seeking to improve your health, manage ongoing health conditions such as chronic illness or disease, or achieve a specific goal such as weight loss or gain, a clinical nutritionist can help.
What to expect from your initial appointment?
Initial nutrition consultations go for 75 minutes and appointments are held at our Chermside clinic or online. The first appointment is longer so your full health history can be taken. Here’s what you can expect from the consultation:
· A full health and dietary evaluation.
· A nutrition plan developed based on your health goals and tailored to your individual needs.
· Education and key steps to be taken to achieve better health, including knowledge of how to incorporate changes with ease.
· Recommendations as needed for nutrition supplementation.
· Testing where necessary, such as general blood tests, allergy tests, hormonal testing and stool analysis for identifying parasites, yeast and bacterial composition (testing is at an additional cost).
· Unwavering support.
