nicole – nutritionist

I am a qualified Clinical Nutritionist, having completed a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional Medicine) and the owner of ‘Nourish the Gut’.

My passion for human nutrition began when I started experiencing ongoing gastrointestinal issues after an illness. I tried conventional medicine including many years of pathology tests and examinations without resolution. I then started my own investigations, which led to formal study, and through the knowledge I obtained from my study I discovered I was a Coeliac, I had fructose malabsorption, small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and endometriosis. I have been gluten free and on a low FODMAP diet for the last 10 years, which has significantly improved my quality of life. I started ‘Nourish The Gut’ as I believe that nourishing the whole body starts with optimal nutrition to support the gut. I bring to clinic a wealth of knowledge in food allergies and intolerances, particularly coeliac disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and fructose malabsorption. Other special interests of mine include weight loss and management, type 2 diabetes, endometriosis and skin conditions (e.g. acne, dermatitis, eczema).

When I’m not in clinic I enjoy cooking, baking and redeveloping recipes to suit my coeliac disease and other intolerances, reading and spending time with my husband and two children.

Nicole is available on Thursdays (9.30 am – 7 pm) and fortnightly Saturdays (9 – 1 pm).
