Let’s Get That Smile Back

Change your food and mend your moods

with Nutritional Neuro-science

This practice specialises in using food and nutrients- and a dash of herbs- as medicine to support and enhance the gazillion of biological pathways in the body.

With over 13 years experience in using nutritional medicine and other therapies for gut and mood problems, I have learnt there are many, many ways we can improve the way we think and feel, and simply do life better.

Sometimes the diet really is the problem because of food intolerances (foods that need to come out) or there are borderline nutrient deficiencies ( food and nutrients that need to come in).

Sometimes it’s more about the body not being able to make use of the nutrients because of metabolic difficulties. This is when we move into the realm of functional medicine and might talk about Pyrroles, or Methylation and MTHFR, or ‘leaky gut’ and the health of the microbiota, or what the neurotransmitters are doing or not doing, or… well let’s just say the insides are a fascinating complex world!

So let’s find out what’s going on.

Initial Appointment and Assessment

Your first appointment involves me taking a detailed health history, which may include a review of blood tests or other testing if you happen to have them.

You will also be asked to keep a food and drink diary for 3 or more days because I will be looking for potential nutrient lags, or food intolerances.

This is largely ‘fact finding’ time but by the end of the appointment we will work together to decide on some simple recommendations to meet the most urgent needs, and bring some relief. This may involve the use of supplements or herbs, some starting points with diet, referral to others, or functional testing. We will also discuss what the most likely time-frame will be to bring the results you are after.

Cost: $180 for 1 hr. All ages.

Reviews

Now it’s time to see how the recommendations are going, answer more questions, work out if any changes need to be made, discuss what the next step is, and see if there any hurdles to overcome. Yes, there is usually a lot to do at these appointments! 

Please note: due to high demand for specific care for gut and mood disorders, I may refer you on to another health practitioner for more general nutritional advice. If you’re unsure I am right for you, just get in touch.

Cost: $90 for 30mins, $180 for 1 hr. All ages.
