I am Shân, founder of Consciously Nutritious. I have a passion for helping others want to lead healthier lifestyles through good nutrition. It is about everyone’s health every day.
My deal is – I love food, always have. It’s amazing to think how our food choices can impact our health and wellness. No one is too young or too old to learn how diet can influence their health. I am a Brisbane based Clinical Nutritionist interested in all areas of health, however I am particularly passionate about restoring your health balance.
Honestly, I understand change can be difficult. I treat with a non-judgmental approach, working with you (wherever you are in your journey) to achieve sustainable changes in line with your health goals. My road to study came about from my own health issues – frequent headaches, loads of allergies, thyroid issues, weight struggles, anxiety and a general day to day feeling of “not quite right”. It wasn’t until I sat down with a natural health practitioner that pieces of the puzzle started to fall into place. Upon taking this advice, my health started to improve and I could see changes happening – as I began to feel better, I gained more energy and vitality.
The biggest wow moment was the takeaway lesson, it is all individual. Yup, everyone is different, your Mum, your BFF, your kids, your boss; it is not a one solution fits all kind of deal.
For me, I love being able to offer practical solutions to improve health and wellbeing. I have spent many years on my own health journey, as well as educating myself. It isn’t just about what we eat, it is so much more.
A Clinical Nutritionist is an evidence based holistic therapy which incorporates nutrition principles, nutritional biochemistry and an understanding of the functional role of food and nutrients required for optimal health.
Sounds a bit “science-y” but the bottom line – what you eat impacts how your body works. Everything from top to bottom has a role in digestion, absorption, nutrient transportation, even how you heal and grow, your immune and moods; plus, much, much more. Your body is a complex bit of kit and needs a good, nutrient dense whole food diet to work at its best.
We look at the whole person (mind, body and spirit). The aim is to provide an individualised treatment plan which includes dietary advice, lifestyle suggestions and sometimes nutritional supplements. This is done by looking at factors such as diet, genetics, stress, environment and lifestyle; to see how these influences are impacting your health and wellness needs.
Treatment plans are informed by research and empirical knowledge, all with the aim of educating you. We want you to feel empowered to achieve realistic dietary and lifestyle goals
