Vegetarian & Vegan Nutritionist
Many people want to be a vegetarian or vegan for ethical or environmental reasons but they may worry about getting all the nutrients they need from their diet to support their health.
Some people may have adopted a vegetarian or vegan diet but have developed symptoms such as brain fog, mood alterations, hair loss or sleep disturbance and want to understand how to relieve these symptoms.
When we cut out meat and/or dairy from our diet, we need to be sure that we are replacing the nutrients they typically provide us. This can be done through diet and/or supplementation and we can provide a plan that suits your needs.
Optimising your Vegan/Vegetarian Diet
We all have different lifestyles that can affect our nutritional requirements. As with everything, you need individualised advice that takes into account your personal needs when planning a vegetarian or vegan diet. Our vegan nutritionist is a well respected plant-based dietitian who specialises in optimising vegan and vegetarian diets for her patients. If blood tests are needed, these can be organised through your GP or our providers.
