I am Maree O’Dwyer, qualified nutritionist and owner of Nourishing Life Nutrition. I am also a registered practitioner with the Australian Traditional Medicine Society.
As a qualified nutritionist, my main goal is to educate and support my patients to create positive relationships with food, develop sustainable habits and find the diet that is optimal for their needs. I have supported many of my patients to improve the health of their gut health as well as supporting and managing weight thus leading to improved quality of life.
Nutritional medicine is not a one-size fits all approach. I have the knowledge and skills to support you to improve your health and wellbeing through personalised dietary and lifestyle advice. I work holistically and my investigation is thorough leaving no stone un-turned to provide you with practical and sustainable advice to support your personal health and nutrition goals.
As well as consulting 1:1 in Newtown, Geelong, I work alongside other health professionals including personal trainers, exercise physiologists and health coaches to complement their programs and assist in improving the health outcomes of their clients. I write and develop nutritious recipes, nutrition guidelines and personalised and group meal plans to support health and fitness programs.
Correct nutrition is one key to developing and maintaining a state of health that is optimal for you. Food provides both the energy and the nutrients needed to build and maintain all body cells. It can be both the prevention and cause of disease.
Private health claims for nutritional medicine
You may be eligible to make a claim for your nutrition consultation if your private health insurer includes nutrition as part of your extras cover.
