The Delilma Nutrition Approach
Registered Nutritionist and Health coach supporting women with their health and wellbeing goals.
Hi, my name is Michele, and I work with women to support female-related health concerns. My journey in nutrition started when I adjusted my diet to support my health and wellbeing.
In my early thirties, I use to get Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) my symptoms would include anxiety, stomach cramps, constipation, diarrhoea, and or vomiting.
I often visited my GP for advice but never got the answers I was looking for as they mainly related to pain management. After my last, of many PMS related GP appointments, I remember saying to myself I need to have control of my body. So I decided to learn more about PMS and the potential cause of my symptoms. From reading different studies it became clear that my food choices were the main culprit for the symptoms I experienced, despite eating relatively healthy.
Within a couple of months after making small dietary changes I noticed my symptoms were not as bad as before and over time disappeared. This is when I developed my interest in the use of food as medicine and studied to become a nutritionist.
Health and wellbeing are so much more than being on a diet or taking a magic pill. It is about understanding and treating the cause of the problem, not just the symptom. Nutrition is a science that interprets the interaction of nutrients and other substances in food, related to maintenance, growth, reproduction, health, and disease of an organism.
Therefore, eating the right foods is important to promote overall health.
As a nutritionist, I help women live a healthier lifestyle and make changes to poor eating habits. Provide coaching and motivational support to guide them on their journey.
