Our dietitians and nutritionists offer services for the following:

Diabetes, heart disease and fatty liver disease

If you are suffering from either diabetes, heart disease or fatty liver disease, our dietitians can help you make lifelong changes to reduce your symptoms and prevent further complications through a balanced healthy diet that targets your specific condition.

Weight management, including weight loss and muscle gain

Our non-judgmental Dietitians and Nutritionists love to assist clients in their specific goals, whether that is to maintain a healthy weight, lose weight or gain weight or muscle. We provide easy and realistic food strategies that help you make small adjustments to your diet over time that result in achievable change.

Child and family nutrition and pregnancy

Do your kids struggle to eat vegetables or love fast food? You are not alone and we are here to help. Book an appointment with our friendly dietitians or nutritionists to help you find ways of improving your family’s diet so that they can live their healthiest lives.

Sports nutrition

Food is essential in sports performance. Whether you are a weightlifter, soccer player, swimmer, runner or more, nutrition is key. Our dietitians and nutritionists love sport and fitness and are able to provide unique nutrition advice to support your performance in your individual sport.

Corporate nutrition and wellness

Workshops or one on one consults are provided by our dietitians and nutritionists to help educate employers and employees on food and nutrition, specifically targeting efficiency in the workplace. Food is so important to every employee’s ability to function and perform at work and therefore their diet and health should be a priority to their employer.

Women’s health: Hormone balancing, endometriosis, prenatal, pregnancy and PCOS

Our dietitians and nutritionists are very passionate about women’s health as they realise the different components in a female’s quality of life. Food and nutrition can largely help reduce symptoms, improve overall health and hormone function as well as support and promote the healthy growth of a baby during pregnancy.

Digestive support including Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), GORD and Inflamed Bowel diseases (IBD)

If you have been diagnosed with IBS, GORD or IBD or have gut and stomach issues, then our dietitians are here to help. We provide individual advice to help reduce symptoms and guide you on what foods to avoid but most importantly what foods to eat and enjoy.

Allergies and intolerances

It can be tricky to know what foods to totally avoid and the hidden sources of allergens, but our dietitians and nutritionists are highly knowledgeable and can help you eat a nutritionally complete diet that does not involve any of your allergies or intolerances.

Vegetarian and vegan diets

More and more people are becoming vegetarian and vegan and it’s so important that they are aware of what nutrients they are at risk of becoming deficient in. Our dietitians and nutritionists are able to provide you with how to replace animal foods with plant foods that are nutritionally similar or what supplements to take so you are not missing out on a healthy diet.

Reading nutrition labels

Our nutritionist provides a practical appointment on how to read nutrition labels to help you understand exactly how to read nutrition labels, what to look out for and how to make the best decisions when going shopping.

Stress, fatigue and anxiety/depression

Food is amazing in its ability to support a healthy mental and physical state. If you are struggling with any of the above, then it is recommended to see our dietitians or nutritionists to get a nutrition plan to improve your symptoms and increase your quality of life.

What’s the difference between a dietitian and a nutritionist?

A dietitian is a qualified health professional that provides a range of evidence-based nutrition services, but in addition to a nutritionist, dietitians have the expertise to provide individual dietary counselling, medical nutrition therapy and group dietary therapy. A dietitian, specifically an accredited Practicing Dietitian undertakes ongoing training and education to ensure that they are providing the most up-to-date nutrition information.

A nutritionist, on the other hand, is not regulated and therefore can sometimes be unqualified but here at OnePointHealth, we ensure our nutritionists are highly qualified with a Bachelor Degree in Nutrition and Physiology and provides an evidence-based, holistic approach.

Nutritionists cannot be bulk billed or covered by your health fund, whereas a dietitian can.
