Megan Crockart is a qualified nutritionist, whose clinic is at Vive, 36 Riding Road, Hawthorne in Brisbane, Queensland
Megan has always held an interest in food (not only enjoying eating also years of home cooking) along with health, fitness and exercise. Megan was drawn to natural therapies as they can be used for so many conditions, not just one illness/condition with rarely the side effects pharmaceutical drugs have, ensuring an enhanced transition to good health via a holistic approach to treatment strategies.
Megan has been a legal secretary for many years, but her passion for food and health led her to study nutrition. She studied part time for seven years and completely understands the pressure of full time work/part-time student and the impact this can have on energy, stress levels, immune support, general wellness and wellbeing.
She believes that good diet, exercise and lifestyle changes alone can often be enough to combat many illnesses and diseases with prevention always being better than cure. Many conditions can be triggered due to nutritional deficiencies and Megan likes to focus on bringing these nutritional deficiencies into balance within the body using food as medicine, nutritional supplements, exercise and lifestyle prescriptions.
She considers good food and a healthy lifestyle as extremely important however so too is enjoying life, therefore achieving good health should be about creating a nutritional and lifestyle balance. Her philosophy is that although food and health are very important so is enjoying life and therefore unless a person needs to restrict specific foods for specific conditions, she feels that all foods can be enjoyed in moderation, although some foods enjoyed more than others. An occasional indulgence is fine but make the most of it and indulge in good quality, savour and enjoy every moment.
Megan likes to help people achieve good health by equipping them with nutritional knowledge whilst also providing individually tailored dietary/lifestyle plans, cooking tips and recipes. Her areas of special interest include diabetes, women’s health, skin conditions, healthy weight loss, immune systems and stress management.
