BSc Dietetics (NWU)
HPCSA: DT0047430
BHF Practice nr: PR730084

We focus on the Brain-Gut axis and improving the microbiome with the food choices we choose. This is carefully integrated with the principles of intuitive eating, teaching patients to listen to their bodies and being more mindful. Our approach is very practical and moves the patient from a spectator to a participant. There will also be recipe demonstrations and patients will take home all the recipes they will enjoy during their stay.
