Weight Loss Consultations in Emerald

Many health issues and conditions can be dealt with by simply making changes to diet and lifestyle.   The old saying you are what you eat is so true. Hippocrates had it right with his motto, “let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”  Nutrition is the foundation of health so when  illness occurs within the body, making changes to the diet can help with treatment and relieve symptoms.

As a Nutritionist these are some of the health issues I can help treat:

  • Food intolerances; coeliacs, gluten intiolerance, fructose malabsorption, lactose intolerance, salicylates, histamine. 
  • Gut health
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Osteoporosis/arthritis
  • Women’s health (preconception, pregnancy, menopause)
  • Children’s health (allergies, food intolerances, behavioural issues due to food and chemical sensitivities,recurring sickness)
  • Weight loss /detox diets
  • Immune issues

APPOINTMENTS

My consultations include a detailed dietary analysis. I like to get a thorough background of your health history to assess if there are any underlying issues that need to be treated or referred for further investigations. Nutritional deficiencies are assessed and meal plans, recipes and shopping lists are then provided according to dietary changes that need to be implemented. Initial consultations are an hour and cost $75.00 with any follow up consultations, if necessary, for 45 minutes at $55.00. 

Consultations are benefited by some health insurance funds, depending on fund and level of cover. 

ADDRESS

I am currently consulting at HUSH 2/11 Kilvington Drive, Emerald. VIC 3782. Call 0400 590 613 to make an appointment. Skype Appointments are available also.

PATIENT INFORMATION PRIVACY

As a Health Professional I am committed to protecting your privacy. On an initial consultation, a full patient history will be taken. This is to help determine the appropriate care needed for treatment and anything discussed in the consultations is completely confidential.

WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM

I have a new 6 week weight loss program to help you achieve your goal weight in 2017. It includes weekly weigh ins, 6 weeks of meal plans and recipes, plus personal consultations to help motivate and keep you accountable. The cost is $30.00 per week. Detox packages are also available, including multivitamins, liver cleansers  and infrared detox saunas.

GUT HEALTH

Any good gut heath program takes a MINIMUM of 6 weeks, depending on the severity of damage done to the intestinal mucosa. Unfortunately the gut take a relatively long time to heal, but it IS repairable, in most cases. Removing the offending foods, and substituting these with wholesome, healing, anti-inflammatory foods is essential. The gut needs good nutrition and good bacteria for it to be working at its optimum. Gut health programs definitely need guidance as there are many conflicting diets and opinions out there. Paleo, GAPS, Vegan and Mediterranean diets all claim to help with gut integrity.   I believe there are pros and cons to each of these diets, and a combination of different aspects of all of them, is probably the best fit for most bodies. My gut program includes a combination of gut healing broths, and recommendations for foods that help build up the bacteria in the small intestine, such as pre and probiotics. Removing processed foods is essential as is including anti inflammatory foods at every meal. And it’s so easy to do! Any diet has to be practical too in order for it to be successful, so I like to keep my suggestions simple according to your lifestyle.
