Ready for Change?
 

Changing your nutrition could change your life and health. Nutrition is the best way to improve your health and vitality. There are over 300 health conditions that can be improved or prevented just by eating healthy. People need to know what information they can trust. My aim is to inform my patients on the latest proven research and to translate this into their diet and lifestyle.

Who should see a Dietician?

 

Any person who wants to ensure they are eating for optimal health and vitality, regardless of your illness or health. Latest reasearch shows that most people are not eating a healthy balanced diet. This explains the epicemic of preventable diseases and high obesity rates..

Warning:

As you can see the field of nutrition and diet therapy requires extensive knowledge of both the medical and nutritional field. It is important that the person you consult regarding your diet is fully trained and qualified as a Dietitian. Dieticians are registered with the HPCSA and should have a practice number. Several people claim to be "nutrition experts" and do not always have the necessary knowledge to help you.
