Why You Should Invest In A Nutritionist

Functional Nutrition is a model of holistic health care that looks to identify and correct the root causes of ill health.

- We get results by focusing on optimising the health of the whole person, not just managing your symptoms.
- We can run lab tests to identify areas of imbalance.
- Lifestyle modifications are employed as long-term strategies to optimise health, these include stress management, sleep routine, dietary upgrades, movement/exercise
- Food is medicine, finding what foods work for you and what foods don’t can have a profound impact on your health.
- What works: a combination of nutrition, functional lab tests, and the time we spend on thoroughly understanding your case and creating the action steps.

My goal is to educate, support and guide you back to optimal health and leave you with a maintenance plan that will keep you there.

EH Testimonial

*"I first came to Lisa after putting up with digestive discomfort for a number of months, I was frustrated by the fact that, although eating healthily I still had persistent bloating, gas and constipation.

I had my initial consultation with Lisa and immediately felt comfortable with her approach and desire to help. We began with testing for SIBO – small intestine bacterial overgrowth, this test confirmed I had SIBO and I started treatment immediately... with great success – 2 months of supplementation and a strict eating plan, this killed off the bacterial overgrowth and eliminating all the uncomfortable symptoms associated with SIBO. I can now eat normally without suffering any bloating, gas, and constipation.

I am very happy with my results and would highly recommend the help of Lisa for any digestive discomfort or anyone seeking better general wellbeing."

Virtual Consultations

Because my client base comes from all corners of Australia and even from overseas, I conduct the majority of my consultations over the phone or using online video conferencing software. You’ll be provided with a meeting link upon scheduling.

Some additional client benefits of offering my clinic virtually are:

  • Elimination of travel time - One of the barriers to healing is the time it takes clients to travel to and from consultations. Using the phone or video means you don’t need to take time off work. You can either find a quiet meeting room somewhere, go outside during your lunch break or schedule an appointment after work.
  • Many of my clients with IBS, chronic fatigue etc find travel stressful and would much rather have a consult in the comfort of their own homes.
  • Virtual consultations allow more flexibility for shorter more frequent consultations where necessary. This form of consulting has worked well for many of my clients and can work well for you too.

Telemedicine is becoming more accepted and it has now been recognised as valid by professional associations like ATMS.

Although most of the time I work virtually I am available every few weeks at Delhi Road Clinic for face-to-face consultations. If you’d prefer to meet at some point during your program do let me know and we can schedule that in.

Gut Rebalancing Program (3 months) - $997

If you have an imbalance in your gut flora, either an overgrowth in the small intestine (SIBO) or an imbalance in your large intestine (dysbiosis, parasites or bacterial infections), this program focuses on getting your gut bacteria back in balance. The aim is to reduce/remove the bloating, have healthy bowel movements daily and give you the confidence to go about your day without having to focus on your symptoms and foods you need to stay away from.

- Reintroduction phase where the foods you’ve avoided will be reintroduced back into your diet and symptoms will be tracked. The result of this phase is understanding what foods work for you and what foods don’t, which puts you back in control of your symptoms.
- The last step is a maintenance plan where we create a healthy balanced diet that keeps you and your gut bacteria happy.
- This program includes the time I spend reviewing results and writing up the action steps, meal plan etc.

Any tests and supplements are an additional cost. These will always be discussed with you and prioritised where necessary.

*"After multiple visits to my GP and the constant disappointment of being told "come back in a month, we'll try another type of indigestion medication" I searched the web and found Lisa, I had constant pains in the stomach, bloating and inconsistent bowel movements, I felt sluggish and tired. I ate healthy foods and still had these symptoms...I was lost. 

My first consultation with Lisa filled me full of confidence after Lisa picked that I had SIBO, after the results from the test came back positive I was glad I had found her. We began treatment using supplements and a low FODMAP diet, within a week I had a whole lot more energy and felt less bloated.  I am now very selective with the foods I eat, going to the gym and am enjoying life a whole lot more compared to 4 months ago. 

Lisa thank you so much for what you have done for my health and my family now having a more energetic Dad. I now have a new outlook on life."
