Terese Boyes, Registered Clinical Nutritionist
Hi! I'm Terese, a registered Clinical Nutritionist who believes that food has the power to heal the body and the mind. I adopt a holistic approach to treat the 'whole' person and use functional testing to understand the root cause of your condition and what's driving your symptoms. I'm not a believer of branded diets or 'one-size fits all' strategies, rather that the human body is capable of self-repair, given the right nutrients and environment. I'm a member of the Clinical Nutrition Association (CNA); committed to continuous professional development and I use evidence-based research in my practise. I work with you to provide an achievable personalised plan with on-going support for healthy nutrition and lifestyle habits.
I believe virtually all disease starts in the gut and that maintaining a healthy microbiome is the key to optimal health. I have a particular interest in nutrigenomics and I'm a trained G.E.M.M (Gut Ecology & Metabolic Modulation) Practitioner. G.E.M.M targets key elements of the gut ecosystem, which in turn favourably modulate the function of distant organ systems.

WHY CHOOSE A REGISTERED NUTRITIONIST?
Currently national regulations offer no criteria to who can call themselves a Nutritionist. While many practitioners, like Terese have rightfully earned their title through years of tertiary education and clinical practice, some have not.
Clinical Nutritionists who are members of the Clinical Nutrition Association have years of tertiary training at an approved institution, hundreds of hours of clinical practice, and annual continued education.
DOES MY SOUTHERN CROSS HEALTH PLAN COVER CLINICAL NUTRITIONIST SERVICES?
Yes! A number of Southern Cross Health Society healthcare plans, such as the Health Essentials, Ultra Care and Body Care Module (which can be added to Wellbeing 1 or Wellbeing 2 policy) enable policy holders to consultations with Nutritionists who are Registered with the Clinical Nutritionist Association - that's me!
Contact Southern Cross Health Society for eligibility and more details.
WHAT DOES HOLISTIC MEAN?
Holistic health looks at more than the physical aspects of a person. It considers emotional, social, mental and environmental aspect of their life and how they may be affecting a persons health and wellbeing.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO MY FIRST APPOINTMENT?
When you come to your initial consultation, please bring with you any supplements and/or medications you are currently taking. For more details go to What To Expect.
