We empower you to Optimise Gut Health

Every time you eat you have the opportunity to impact your gut microbiome. The gut microbiome helps us to digest food and reduce inflammation.

Take control of your gut and mind

Our dieticians are specialised in facilitating a collaborative comprehensive dietary assessment and working with you to not only provide practical advice for nutritional management but are also equipped to assist you to manage hurdles and any difficulties you may experience in achieving optimal nutritional well-being.

Our dieticians provide tailored nutritional guidance AND support you with any difficulties you may experience EVERY STEP OF THE WAY to ensure sustainable change.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are the two main forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Both are autoimmune diseases with an unknown aetiology. Symptoms can include abdominal pain, bowel movement disturbance, weight loss and nutritional deficiency.

Disruption of the gut microbiome is influenced by diet and has been linked to the pathogenesis of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Diet is an important consideration in the management of the gut microbiome and nutritional deficiencies.

Feel confident with dietary management of IBD as our dietitians assist you with:

  • Managing nutrition during a flare

  • Hydration strategies

  • Optimising your diet during remission

  • Gastrointestinal tract education

  • Resources and the support you need to navigate this journey

  • Multidisciplinary approach if required including support from our gut psychologists

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Irritable bowel syndrome is a group of functional gastrointestinal symptoms that can include disturbance in bowel movements, abdominal pain, nausea and bloating and often impairs an individual’s quality of life. These symptoms occur without any visible signs of disease of your digestive tract.

Our dieticians are experienced to help you achieve optimal gut health and ease your IBS symptoms. Strategies will differ depending on the specific needs of the patient but may include alterations to FODMAPs, gluten, fructose, fibre and food chemicals.

Working collaboratively with one of our dietitians can help:

  • Identify foods that lead to your symptoms

  • Tailor your diet to ensure your nutritional requirements are met

  • Assist with nutrition strategies for diarrhoea/constipation

  • Manage eating strategies

  • Optimise your hydration

  • Multidisciplinary approach if required including support from our gut psychologists

Coeliac Disease

Coeliac disease is a chronic digestive and immune condition that results in damage to the small intestine and is triggered by eating foods which contain gluten.

Nutritional expertise is important to allow you to most effectively manage this condition. In combination with your doctor, we can help you to plan for your nutritional requirements to ensure you are having the nutrients you need.

Untreated Celiac Disease leads to Anxiety, Depression, Fatigue with reduced quality of life

Psychological symptoms have been linked to quality of life impairment and dietary non adherence

Our dietitians are happy to provide you with:
