What is a nutritional medicine consultation?
Disease is often a product of environmental factors, diet and living habits, which can be prevented with the right nutrition and lifestyle tools.

Nutritional medicine follows natural medicine principles:
A consultation includes:
Diet analysis, lifestyle assessment, whole health status (exploring current function of various body systems and current presenting concerns), personal and family health history, review of recent test results and physical examinations as appropriate (eg. blood pressure, height, weight).
Individualised treatment plans include:
Nutritional advice/education, diet planning advice, functional food therapy "food as medicine", nutrient therapy supplementation programs, lifestyle improvements, integrative medicine test referrals and recommendations for other therapies.
Why nutritional medicine?
Every body requires a balance of essential nutrients for proper functioning, however, this level of nutrients can change - sometimes dramatically - from one person to another, dependent on a number of factors.
Factors contributing to nutrient imbalances:
> Underlying disease or disorders
> Modern food processing techniques
> Environmental toxins & pollutants
> Busy Lifestyles
> Poor quality food choices
