Meet Our Nutritionist

Mary Collins learnt about the role of food and nutrition in one’s health from a very young age. When her grandmother died early due to rheumatoid arthritis and the adverse effects of her prescription drugs, and she lost her mother to breast cancer, Mary wondered if food could’ve saved them.

She attended university to get the answer to her question, but she received a lot more than that. Now, Mary uses her knowledge about food and nutrition to help her clients who are struggling with autoimmune diseases, mental health disorders, digestive problems and many other conditions.

She develops a treatment plan tailored to each person’s needs, knowing that proper diet and a healthy lifestyle can help improve their health.

What Do You Want to Know About Your Nutrition?

When should I see a nutritionist?

Do you have food sensitivities or suffer from allergies or digestive problems like constipation or diarrhoea? If you answered yes, you definitely need to consult one. Food should nourish your body, not make you feel ill. If it’s causing you stress, heartburn, rapid weight loss or weight gain, among others there must be something wrong.

What is a healthy diet?

It is one that consists of foods rich in protein, carbohydrates, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. Simply put, these are your vegetables, fruit, peas, whole grain, lean meat, poultry, eggs, fish, tofu, cheese and yoghurt.

What does the healthy eating pyramid mean?

It’s a visual guide of what you should eat and how much of it must be consumed every day to obtain the proper nutrients.

What does RDI mean?

RDI is the acronym for Recommended Daily Intake. The Australian Dietary Guidelines provide recommendations on how much nutrients or minerals a person needs depending on the state of their health and age.   

What fats are good for me?

Good fats can be sourced from olive oil, coconut oil, butter, sesame oil, nuts, sunflower and sesame seeds, avocados, eggs, yoghurt and fish that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids like salmon, sardines, tuna and mackerel among others. 

Do I need a letter from my physician before I can consult a nutritionist?

That won’t be necessary.
