Hi, My Name is Alison. I am a fully Qualified Nutritionist with a passion for helping clients with Sports Nutrition & Pregnancy, Post-Natal Nutrition and Children’s Health. In 2016 I graduated with a Bachelor of Health Science specialising in Nutritional Science from Endeavour College, Sydney. During my studies I combined my passion for healthy food with a fascination for human biology. As a practising Health Practitioner I like to encourage clients to understand the importance of making daily healthy food & lifestyle choices, rather than following the latest fad. Recently I have become a proud new mum to a little boy which has inspired me to work with families and newborns. I am very active with a love of soccer and sprinting, which keeps me fit and up to date with sports nutrition for stamina, repair and recovery.
With many years of experience working in the health industry in retail, and as a sales rep for one of Australia’s leading Practitioner companies, I’m excited to be part of the team at Lake Road Chiropractic and I’m looking forward to meeting you and your family!
Since graduating I understand the importance of gut health, a multi-disciplinary approach to health care, and focus my treatments on trying to improve the chemical stress applied to a body. Nutrition is so important
Together we can get you from where you are, to where you want to be in your health and fitness goals. Remember that every cell in your body is relying on good nutrition, so if you have diabetes, thyroid issues, acne, hormonal issues, digestive issues, brain fog, trouble sleeping, feeling low or depressed, and suffer with autoimmune diseases, these have all been linked to gut health.
Some of you may be wondering what is the difference between nutritionists and dietitians? I look at it this way. A dietitian will help you manage your conditions through food guidelines. They are the reason for the food pyramid and other diet guidelines based on your disease. My goal is to help your body heal and become healthy through healthier food choices, not through standardised guidelines. While nutritionists and dietitians both use food alterations to gain desired responses in the body, nutritionists help you to create a healthier internal environment and allow the body to do what it does best, heal.
