Rick Hutchinson

Nutritionist
B Hsc
ANTA Member (industry body).

As a holistic clinical nutritionist, my aim is to consider your comprehensive health picture. This includes your physical, mental, emotional, and environmental aspects, in working towards your health needs and goals.

This is done through a series of questions and discussion covering the many bodily systems, such as the gut and how you digest, the nervous system and its role in energy, mood, sleep, stress, as well as gathering information about your medical history, and your past and current lifestyle and dietary habits.

This in-depth discussion allows for a greater understanding of your condition, allowing a specific treatment plan to be tailored for you.

Recommendations are made based on your current levels of vitality, and of course the specific health outcomes you want to achieve.

A clearly defined set of health goals and priorities will be provided. Then a set of specific measurable, attainable, and realistic goals will be set with regards to diet and lifestyle.

It’s important that you are ready and committed to make some changes. The relationship between the client and practitioner is one of partnership, with the practitioner providing skills and knowledge, allowing you the client, to take your health into your own hands.

As you know, nutrients, gained through food and supplements, provide the building blocks that your body needs to function. You could think of your body as being the house, and nutrients forming the structure that holds you up, makes the repairs, and allows you to function.
