The Nutrition and Dietetic Service offers individual consultations to patients referred by Specialists, General Practitioners and Allied Health Care Providers as well as those patients who refer themselves.
The Nutrition and Dietetic Service focuses on holistic, integrated and expressive health care, with the ultimate aim of focusing on the treatment of cause, rather than simply the treatment of patient symptoms alone. The focus is on nutrition education and counselling as part of a holistic and complementary approach to health.
Rather than handing out ‘generic diets’, the service seeks to work with patients to determine appropriate and sustainable nutritional goals, implement individually-tailored nutrition and supplementation care plans that are specific to the patient’s individual needs and genetic constitution.
