What is Nutritional Medicine?
Nutritional Medicine integrates both scientific nutrition and the principles of natural medicine with a holistic approach. When treating symptoms or diseases, I look for the underlying causes, which are generally due to environmental and nutritional factors and help guide you to better health.
1. How often do I need an appointment?
However, I’m flexible to your needs and it really depends on you.
Some people prefer to attend on a fortnightly basis, while others would rather an appointment every 6 weeks or so, or you may simply want some basic information which can be obtained in a total of one or two sessions.
The choice is yours.
2. When are you available?
3. Can I claim a rebate with my private health fund?
**Update** – due to the current COVID-19 crisis all consultations are online and are unfortunately not covered by health funds.
4. Can you order blood and other functional tests?
However, these tests will be at a cost to you as Medicare will not cover them. Bulk billing of some tests is possible at your GP’s discretion. I only order further testing if it is absolutely necessary.
I have a deep passion for food, nutrition, our bodies, and cooking. As a single mother of three daughters, I am aware of what it takes to nourish ourselves and our families but keeping it achievable and within a budget. My goal is to help you achieve this in a way that works for you. Being a ‘health detective’ to understand what is going on with my client’s health and help them feel wonderful again is another huge passion. I absolutely love what I do!
Growing up I always loved experimenting with food and discovering natural, home-made remedies. I have been cooking since I was a young girl and I have always been a cook-from-scratch cook, with the dedication growing once having babies to grow and nurture. When I was thinking about what course I could do to establish a career for myself, health and wellness was always going to be my direction. I then signed up for the Advanced Diploma in Nutritional Medicine and was thrown into the world of science, biology, chemistry and how our amazing bodies work.
