My interest in clinical nutrition stemmed from my own experiences with eczema, asthma, allergies and infertility.
Under the care of a clinical nutritionist I have been able to manage and overcome these conditions. Through my experience I came to understand the importance of a healthy diet and nutritional support in disease management and prevention.
The more I learned on my journey the more compelled I became to share the knowledge I had gained with others.
This powerful experience drove me to become a driven advocate & communicator and eventually to pursue a career in nutrition.
In my clinical consultations I spend considerable time with each of my clients, exploring all aspects of their health through case history exploration, dietary analysis, pathology and functional testing and physical examination in order to identify key factors that may be contributing to their health concerns.
By addressing these factors with dietary planning, lifestyle changes and nutritional supplementation where necessary, I am able to help my clients manage their health concerns and live symptom free.
I strongly believe that what we feed our body determines our quality and enjoyment of life. Good nutrition, together with plenty of fresh air, exercise and an active mind is the foundation for a happier, healthier future.
I come from a family who feed from their hearts.
Celebrations, picnics, cultural festivals and even times of grief always have food at the centre of them. Each dining table and picnic rug is a smorgasbord of offerings of love from each one of us to the others.
Growing up, my maternal grandmother was the heart of the family who brought us all together to feast and share and support one another. My grandmother's traditional, eastern European cooking techniques and recipes were revered among our family and friends, but it was her intuitive knowledge of natural medicines that captivated me.
From simple remedies like gargling with garlic and salt water for a throat infection to complex concoctions of herbs and raw egg yolks to treat a variety of viruses, my grandmother's natural remedies derived from things found in the garden or kitchen cupboard.
