Making food easier in invisible illnesses
Our focus is to help you to be able to have a fulfilling, nourishing experience with food. We pride ourselves on being ahead of the game when it comes to understanding the difficulties that people with invisible illnesses face when it comes to eating, drinking and staying adequately nourished; and knowing what to do about it.
Whether it be from challenges with gut symptoms, reactions with certain foods or food components, with fatigue or pain being a barrier to getting enough food in, with your relationship with food, or with needing to make adjustments to what you eat to help with particular medical conditions; we support each of our patients with an individualised approach - as no two people are the same - to help them make sustainable, realistic and achievable changes which will move them closer to where they want to be, both within their nutrition and overall health.
What specific challenges can you help with?
Depending on your presentation and what we uncover in your initial session, some of the tools, education points, and strategies that we might go through could be:
We also have great partnerships with different allied health professionals and medical specialists who know these invisible illnesses and share our values; we can help identify non-diet therapies that will compliment dietary therapy; as well as provide you with some resources if appropriate that might not be actioned in session with us, but will help with some of your nutrition / gastrointestinal-related concerns.
This is by no means an exhaustive list, and depending on the individual there might be one or two topics, or 8-10 topics that we deem relevant and helpful for you. Now of course you get to be a part of this process to, and all of our decision making as to what we go through in session will be informed most importantly by your goals, but also your prior knowledge and capacity.
