“Everybody is different” isn’t just true of our shape or physical type. It’s true down to the genetic level, according to expert nutritionist and nutrigenomics specialist.
Mary-Anne is an industry leader in all things nutrition; lauded for her extensive knowledge on nutrigenomics, the study of the effects of food on gene expression, and women's chronic health care management.
Director and Clinical Nutritionist at Adelaide Nutrition and Wellbeing, Mary-Anne is a leading thinker on women’s health, harnessing the power of food to overcome chronic illness and individual client care. Her work spans many areas, including chronic health management for conditions such as fibromyalgia and auto-immune disease, as well as menopause, preconception and fertility care.
Mary-Anne’s success comes from her strongly held belief that there’s no one-size-fits-all diet, but with the right health care and nutrition, everyone can enjoy a healthy life.
After suffering from a range of chronic health problems which doctors could not explain, Mary-Anne went to university to study nutrition in her 50s. That decision ignited her passion to teach others to take control of their own health through the power of food.
Mary-Anne’s focuses on individual nutrition programs, and influencing women about their definition of healthy eating with the mantra “health is wealth”. She argues chronic illness is not a normal part of ageing and the right individual back-to-basics diet will influence health outcomes.
