What I Do

If you suspect that food is causing your reactions then you are likely to be right.


The hard thing is finding what it is in food that is triggering your symptoms.


At The Food Intolerance Dietitian, I work with you  to identify and help you manage your food symptoms.

What You Should Do First

If you think wheat or gluten is causing your symptoms,  or have gut symptoms the first thing to do is to go to your doctor to test for Coeliac Disease and to eliminate anything else that could be causing your symptoms.


Also, it is worthwhile checking to see if you have any allergies which can also diagnosed by an Allergist (doctor).

What To Do Next

Seeing a Dietitian experienced in food intolerances is an excellent idea if you suspect you are reacting to food. FODMAP information is constantly being uncovered which means that online information and printed information can quickly be out of date.


Furthermore, you may not have come across food chemicals (salicylates, amines and glutamates), and food additives as being potential triggers.

As a specialist Dietitian I am up to date with the most recent food intolerance data available across the different areas.

Ring to have a chat about how I can help you or you can book directly online.


Book an extended consultation (1 hour 1/2 ) if you:

  • are having food reactions but do not have any idea what is affecting you

  • suspect food chemicals (salicylates, amines, glutamates and/or food additives)

  • have a complicated medical history

If you book an extended consultation but only 60 minutes is required then ​you will only have to pay for the 1 hour.


Book a standard (1 hour) consultation if you:

  • suspect or know you have a FODMAP  or lactose intolerance

  • are likely reacting only to a very small number of foods

  • have some simple/quick type of food queries

If you are not sure what to do- ring anyway and we can have a chat on 0412 586836 about where you are at.
