Welcome to Gut Healthy Dietitian!
We are a clinic based in London, Ontario offering virtual and on-site nutrition counselling services
provided by Registered Dietitians.
Gut Healthy Dietitian was created to provide clients the most up-to-date evidence-based nutrition services to help them meet their lifestyle and diet goals.
At Gut Healthy Dietitian we believe that our gut health is the foundation to our overall health. Gut health extends far beyond digestive disorders. Growing evidence supports the role of our gut in our mental health through the gut brain axis. With over 70% of our immune system contained within the GI tract, gut health has a massive role in immunity, including the prevention of chronic diseases, allergies and autoimmune conditions. We believe that nutrition and a healthy lifestyle play a significant role in supporting not only physical health but optimal mental health.
In addition to gut health and digestive disorders, we provide nutrition counselling on a wide variety of conditions including (but not limited to) chronic disease management, weight management, PCOS and other hormonal conditions, sports nutrition and specialized diets (i.e. plant based, gluten-free etc.).
At Gut Healthy Dietitian we take an integrative approach to nutrition that blends evidence-based
guidance with tangible recommendations you can easily integrate into your life, whether that’s
providing recipes, grocery store tips, or supplement recommendations that can assist you in meeting
your nutrition goals. Most of all, we believe in providing realistic recommendations that work for the
client’s life, and the importance of collaboration between the dietitian and client.
We are passionate about helping others improve their nutrition and we believe that everyone should have the access to information and education that they need to support their health and wellness.
There is an overwhelming amount of nutrition advice that is constantly being released, most of which is very conflicting. Our job is to remain up-to-date on the most innovative, exciting and effective nutrition information – so that you don’t have to.
We want this website to be more than just a list of our services, but rather a resource for everyone who comes across it to learn more about gut health and nutrition. At Gut Healthy Dietitian you will find scientific nutrition articles where we break down gut health-focused nutrition research and simple, nourishing recipes to support a healthy lifestyle.
We use an evidence-based and integrative approach to guide you on how to use nutrition to support your overall health and wellbeing. Our purpose is to support you in nourishing your body in a way that is sustainable as well as enjoyable – food and eating should be a joyful experience!
We are so grateful for you to join the Gut Healthy community! The easiest way to stay in touch with us is to join our email list. Through email we will update you on exciting new blogs and recipes on the website.
