Celia Grossman

Naturopath
Nutritionist

I am a qualified naturopath and clinical nutritionist, with a wealth of experience in health spanning over 40 years. In 1976, I completed a Bachelor of Science degree with Honours at Monash University, majoring in Biochemistry and Microbiology. After I completed my honours research year, I was employed by the Royal Women’s Hospital located in Melbourne, Australia, as a bacteriologist. I worked there for several years before leaving to start a family. After my children married, when I should have considered retirement, I embarked on a 4-year full-time Bachelor of Health Science Degree (Naturopathy) course at Torrens University. My unique tertiary university education and clinical experience have provided me with the knowledge and passion to treat such conditions as bacterial and yeast overgrowth in the digestive system, such as SIBO and IBS, and other gut complaints. Indeed, I am one of a select group of preferred practitioners who have been approved by sibodoctor.com and sibotest.com. I have also embarked on a comprehensive courses of over 300 hours in Functional Immunology, Thyroid Health, and Blood Test Analysis. These have been invaluable courses among others I have done, to address autoimmune issues such as the thyroid disorder, Hashimoto's and to be able to uncover dysfunctional patterns in a routine blood test. Furthermore, owing to the fact that I have been fortunate to train under the giants in genetics and nutrigenomics,, I am able to assess your genetic make-up and how this may impact your health, fertility, and other chronic conditions. My goal is to improve your health, well-being and quality of life, by assisting you with evidenced-based dietary advice, lifestyle changes, natural medicines and nutritional supplementation. With my knowledge of genetics and nutrigenomics, immunology, and my extensive knowledge of biochemical pathways, microbiology and physiological processes of the body, I can recommend and design a nutritional and lifestyle program that suits your unique genetic profile and your clinical history. As a solution-oriented health detective with a passion and knowledge in nutritional biochemistry, immunology and the microbiome, I seek to uncover and treat any underlying causes to your health conditions, rather than merely concentrating on alleviating the presenting symptoms. Ultimately, while the chances of totally changing the mindset of the general population is unlikely, I am determined to IMPROVE THE HEALTH OF ONE INDIVIDUAL AT A TIME.

Kerry O'Bryan

Dietitian
Fitness Coach

Kerry O’Bryan is an experienced Sports Dietitian, Strength and Conditioning Coach, and University Lecturer who is extremely passionate about performance health and longevity, specifically for men – developing adolescent, athlete, men’s health, through to men in their 70’s!   Currently working with Queensland Academy of Sport and Bond University, over the past 13 years Kerry has worked with many sporting teams and organisations (see below) within networks of highly skilled multi-disciplinary practitioners, with the unified goal of – Performance Health.    Performance health is a concept that advocates a person must first be “healthy” (mental/mood, metabolic & physical) to be able to perform at their best. Performance health is relevant for any person of any background and is certainly not limited to physical performance. While this may sound obvious, the reality is that today we face many social and environmental barriers/challenges that prevent us from achieving optimal health.   Nutrition and exercise play a critical role in supporting an individuals’ health, and our ability to perform at our best. Performance goals vary from person to person, and can be applicable to many areas of life, work, or sporting performance –   ·       Increased corporate mental performance ·       Favourable body composition change (e.g. sustainable weight loss, building or retaining muscle mass) ·       Recovery from injury or surgery ·       Ageing better ·       Improved sexual function / hormonal health ·       Optimal growth & development for adolescent ·       Peak athletic performance   “Doesn’t matter whether you’re an athlete or bloke over 60 – I apply the same process of elite support using the best tools available. There is so much more we can do to monitor and improve our metabolic health and performance, in a space that has become very noisy with mixed messages, failed efforts and false hope.” With the right system that combines expert knowledge, tools, skills, and planning, you can be confident that you are putting your valuable time, energy and focus into the best approach to health and longevity that moves you toward achieving your goals.

Emily Gardem

Nutritionist

I am a degree qualified Clinical Nutritionist, and trained Chef with over 20 years experience in the kitchen. I love food, and i love nutrition and what better way then to combine the two together! I learnt the hard way several years ago what extreme stress can do to the body. After working hard as a chef for 15 years, I found myself to be burnt out, highly stressed and constantly exhausted - i didn't recognise myself in the mirror any more. I wasn't well, miserable and had lost direction in my life. After falling pregnant with my first child, i had the wake-up call or “sliding doors” moment I needed - this was not the way I wanted to live anymore. I realised that my passion lay with natural health, and decided to focus solely on my degree.Today, i am a different person, and am so passionate about helping others be the best versions of themselves that they can, that they can be happy, healthy and stress free! What i will do: * Show you that eating well does not mean bland, boring, or expensive * Encourage positive relationships between food and body image * Tailor nutrition and treatment plans specific to your individual needs - there is no one size fits all approach * Explain in detail the benefits of good nutrition, and why they are specially important to you What i won't do: * Use the word “diet” ( its all about dietary modifications) * Ban chocolate or sometime's foods completely from your diet (we all need balance in our lives, and food is to be enjoyed! - its all about moderation!) * Set unrealistic goals
