• Functional Nutrition

  • Functional Nutrition focusses on the bio-individuality of each client using both a functional and foundational approach to achieving optimal health and performance.

    We all have our own unique bio-individuality. Therefore, a one size fits all approach is never going to be truly successful. Functional Nutrition addresses this gap by evaluating what organs or systems may be under or over performing, identifying specific nutritional deficiencies, which may be underpinning your symptoms and making recommendations using a nutrient-dense, properly prepared, real food diet and supplemental support (if required). 

    The aim of Functional Nutrition is to empower you to become knowledgeable and responsible for your own health by working with you to develop nutritional and lifestyle strategies to support and balance the foundations for health (digestion, blood sugar regulation, fatty acids, minerals and hydration).

    Functional Nutrition can help to;

    • Transition from to a real food diet to reduce nutritional-related exhaustion, fatigue, stress and depression.
    • Develop the metabolic flexibility for optimal health, body composition and training / racing.
    • Balance blood sugar levels for more energy & less stress on the body.
    • Overcome digestive difficulties, such as; bloating, IBS, constipation, diarrhoea, reflux.
    • Fuel training and competition with real food to reduce GI issues resulting from the regular use of sports nutrition.
    • Rebuild a healthy gut for better immunity & overall health.
    • Resolve hormonal imbalances, such as; PMS, menstrual irregularities, menopause, problems with fertility and other female health issues.

    Rather than a quick band-aid fix, our aim is to provide a quality service by conducting professional and thorough investigations to ensure we focus on the root causes and achieve long term sustainable results.  You then have a choice on what follow-up support you receive after this session.

    Discovery Call (FREE)

    This a 15min call to understand how functional nutrition can help you. 

    Initial Consultation ($120)

    This face-to-face consultation is approximately 1 hour (in person or online) and includes;

    • An initial interview: to help me understand you and what you hope to achieve form our session. 
    • Review of your Nutritional Assessment Questionnaire: an online form that you fill out beforehand, which provides me with information about your symptoms and health concerns.  This helps to show your progress over time.
    • Review of your Food Journal: you will be asked to submit a 3 day food journal beforehand. This will enable me to determine how we can best support you through your dietary changes.  
    • Recommendations: we will discuss a realistic, achievable plan that you can implement straight away. A copy of this will be provided.
    • Email Support: To ensure we get as much success as possible, I also offer 4 weeks of email support.  You can then book in for a Functional Evaluation for your second appointment.

    Please bring any medication, nutritional supplements or blood test results that you have to this appointment.

    Functional Evaluation ($120)

    This face-to-face consultation is approximately 1 - 1.5 hours and involves the palpation of various reflex points on the body, which relate to various organs and systems.  The powerful process provides me with information on the organs that may be under (or over) functioning and how this may be contributing to your body’s overall dysfunction.  It also involves lingual neuro testing (LNT) whereby we test real food nutrients that you may wish to consider to assist your body’s journey to optimal health.

    This process determines what nutrients your body is lacking.  I can then provide you with suggestions on how to get these nutrients into your real food diet or, depending on the dysfunction, I may need to suggest a short term supplementation protocol.
