So what exactly does a clinical nutritionist do?


A consultation with Adelle will involve: An in-depth dietary analysis to determine macro and micro nutrient intake, a discussion of your presenting concern, discussion on other involving factors such as: stress levels, sleep habits, chemical exposure, mental and emotional well-being analysis of pathology (if presented).


This can take some time, but it is important to look at the big picture of your overall health and highlight where exactly Adelle can assist.


  Adelle doesn’t believe in a one size fits all approach, no gimmicky diets, no blanket general information…A consult with Adelle is simply all about what is right for you. Treatment usually consists primarily of dietary intervention, lifestyle suggestions and supplementation where required.


Occasionally, further information is required to adequately provide support during treatment, if this is the case functional pathology or a referral to another health practitioner may be required.
