Mint’s Clinical Nutrition clinic practitioners aim to help you reach your health goals by giving you the tools, guidance and knowledge to achieve optimum health.

We take a *functional medicine approach in addressing your health goals and concerns by looking at all aspects in your life with nutrition as well as lifestyle factors. During an initial consultation, information is gained on a range of body systems such as; neurological, gastrointestinal, liver, kidney, thyroid, adrenal & cardiovascular health.  This is in conjunction with your lifestyle factors such as sleep, stress levels and exercise patterns.  We also work collaboratively with other healthcare professionals such as; your specialist or GP if relevant to achieve effectively & efficiently your best health outcome.

We can offer skype and phone call consultations if you are unable to attend our clinic.

*Functional Medicine explained – functional medicine seeks to identify and address the root cause of disease, and views the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs.  It treats the whole system not just the symptoms.

What you will receive from your consultation:

  • Initial Comprehensive Health Assessment Questionnaire – this is sent to you and completed before you come to the practice for your assessments, so we get a good idea of where your health is at, before we even get started.

  • Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis – this quick but sophisticated assessment measures the health of your cells, including how well you are ageing (your “biological age”), total fat and muscle mass, your toxicity levels, cellular hydration and more. This assessment lets you know what is going on…on the “inside”!
