BHSc (Nut. Med), A.NUTR, ANTA, ACNEM
I have received a Bachelor of Health Science in Nutritional Medicine, Certification in Plant Based Nutrition, am an Associate Nutritionist with the NSA (Nutrition Society of Australia), Associate membership with ACNEM (Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine), and hold registration with ANTA (Australian Natural Therapists Association).
My interests lie in mental health, genetics & methylation, chronic health conditions, and peak performance. I take an evidence based approach to my clients’ health. Individuals are just that, individuals, and acknowledgement of this must be made when deciding on a course of action to take and developing a treatment plan.
With the appearance of Dr. Google and the easy access of health products, it’s common for people to self-diagnose and self-medicate. But this is often done without the full understanding of the body’s biochemistry.
Accurate test interpretation can reveal a considerable amount of information to help identify the cause of illness. There is now specific testing available, which can provide additional detailed analysis of different aspects of the body. This can greatly enhance the ability to provide specific and dedicated treatment.
Taking advantage of these tests helps to avoid guess work prescriptions, and offers a more targeted approach.
The clinic is in the heart of Norwood, and I am fortunate enough to be surrounded by many amazing practitioners. They all bring so much extra value to patient centered care. We discuss new ideas and emerging research, and bounce off each other when difficult cases need a fresh perspective. This provides a very supportive environment so we can provide clients with the best results.
Our Practice Manager and reception staff are extremely accomodating, and will do whatever they can to make sure you receive the highest quality service.
In the face of such a structured biochemical approach, I am very down to earth and nurturing, and work WITH patients according to their values, current depth of understanding, and willingness to make changes to their health.
The energy of consultations are relaxed, I may or may not be wearing shoes, and i will always do everything i can to make you feel at home.Rohan Smith
