What is it?

Dietitians provide practical food, diet and nutrition advice for overall health and wellbeing.  A dietitian has knowledge of how our diet and particular foods affect our health, special needs or treatment options for certain medical conditions.

How does it work, to heal you?

While most people think of dietitians predominantly as a means for weight loss, Dietitians can actually help with a myriad of gut and health related issues and illnesses.  Our dietitians provide diet and nutrition advice for people with diabetes, coeliac disease, Crohn's disease and many more.  Our dietitians help you understand how to achieve general good health and combat medical conditions and disease.

Madeleine Baumgart

Paediatric Dietitian - BHSc (Nutr&Diet)(Hons), BNurs

Due to her nurturing nature, Madeleine originally studied and became a Registered Nurse.  However, her passion for nutrition and how it relates to health motivated her to further her studies in the field of Dietetics and Nutrition.  Her interest in managing gut conditions has been further developed following her own experience with IBS, however her passion and principal area of interest now lies in assisting paediatric patients.  The field of nutrition science is still emerging, yet Madeleine believes that with new supporting evidence she is able to provide more specific advice to her clients which is both exciting and beneficial.
