Irritable bowel syndrome
We understand how crippling IBS can be, and we’re here to help. We offer specialised IBS nutrition support, and are current with the very latest research on IBS and the low-FODMAP diet.
We understand that everyone is unique and that triggers and responses vary according to your individual biological make up. We believe a holistic approach is crucial for IBS, and our goal is to enable you to enjoy a variety of food and to enjoy life again.
We are super-proud to partner with A Little Bit Yummy to bring you internationally reviewed resources and contribute to their online health courses.
Allergies and intolerances
Around 10% of infants in New Zealand have an allergy, with many more who may have intolerances. Anna has been helping families identify and manage their children’s allergies for 20 years while ensuring they don’t miss out on vital nutrition for growth and brain development. Anna has completed the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA)’s training, and co-wrote the Adverse Food Reactions section of the Dietitians New Zealand Clinical Handbook.
Although allergies are less common in adults, it is estimated that 3-4 adults in every 100 have an intolerance or allergy. Understanding the different biochemical mechanisms will give you the confidence to eat more widely. Both Anna and Maria have specialist training in food intolerances, and can help you identify whether you really need to be avoiding particular foods or food groups. They will give you practical ideas on how to get your ideal intake of vitamins and minerals from real food to keep you nourished, while managing your intolerance symptoms and enjoying life.
Anna has extensive experience working with IBD (Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis) in a hospital setting, and understand how difficult it can be to eat well during a flare up. Other bowel disorders we can help you with include diverticular disease, coeliac disease, non-coeliac gluten intolerance, and malabsorption.
