WHAT DO NUTRITIONISTS DO?

 

The main role of a nutritionist is to use a holistic approach which considers the whole person – mind, body and spirit to help people achieve optimal health as well as work in a preventative role. Nutritionists guide, educate, empower and support dietary and lifestyle changes for a happier and more energetic you. In addition, they may also recommend supplementation or additional alternative therapies to support any changes. Nutritionists recognise that disease is complex and is caused by a combination of factors therefore individualised care is the cornerstone of their practice.

Some areas nutritionists can work together with the client on are:

  • Weight loss, weight or muscle gain
  • Pre-conception, pregnancy or postpartum
  • Specific diets – low FODMAP, vegan, vegetarian etc.
  • Supplement management
  • Digestive/GUT health
  • Skin health
  • Fatigue and chronic stress
  • Vitamin and mineral deficiencies
  • Gynaecological issues – polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), Endometriosis
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Autoimmune conditions

Our Nutritionist Nicole has completed a tertiary qualification in nutrition.  It is worth noting that there are many people (especially in the online world) who use this title but who lack formal qualifications.
