The clinic is run by a dietitian and nutritionist who has a passion for nutrition and its effects on our health. Each client is assessed on the individual’s needs and circumstances: weight management (weight gain & weight loss), diabetes, cardiovascular disorders (heart disease, high cholesterol, hypertension), metabolic syndrome, food allergies, gastrointestinal disorders and intolerances (irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, Coeliac disease), post-surgical dietetic advice, renal disease, pregnancy, bone health, cancer, paediatrics, vegetarianism or general healthy eating advice.
The nutrition philosophy this clinic follows looks at a person as a whole, not only on dietary intakes and supplements, but also on lifestyle, prevention, and the use of natural therapies to manage chronic diseases. A multidisciplinary team works together to address individual issues to encourage and educate clients to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Niumee also runs a functional gym whose personal trainers can work in close liaison with the dietician for any clients who may be interested in combining their lifestyle change with both a diet and a personalised fitness programme.
