You’re here because you’ve tried everything and you don’t know what to do now.
You have removed foods but are still bloated, constipated or have diarrhoea (or even both!).
You have tried different diets and supplements to no avail.
You have removed different foods with moderate success but now you don’t know what to eat anymore.
You want to feel better, eat good food and be able to live life again.
If this sounds like you, I’m here to help.
I love helping people overcome their digestive issues and start to re-claim their health, because with knowledge comes power and the ability to take control. I will investigate the root cause of your gut issues and support you in the changes needed to bring your gut health back to make you a healthier you!
Poor gut-health can lead to a range of other health issues such as low mood, inflammation, irregular periods, skin problems, low energy and much more. I can help with that.
All of my recommendations are based on research and science. Many symptoms can be interconnected, and often the root cause can be linked to one, or sometimes many, underlying imbalances. These imbalances may be occurring in other systems within the body and not directly related to the ones creating the symptoms. By addressing these imbalances, we can start to address your symptoms and optimise your overall health going forward.
I have two ways of working with you depending on where you are right now and the support you need for your wellness journey….
1. Optimum Gut
6 month tailored package
Optimum Gut is a 1:1 tailored package that will offer proven solutions to reduce your digestive symptoms and investigate the root cause.
This package is for you if you have on-going gut issues like constipation, diarrhoea, reflux, bloating, indigestion over a long period of time and you’re ready to finally get to the bottom of these.
Maybe you have a diagnosis of Irritable Bowel syndrome (IBS) or SIBO or no diagnosis at all, but you want to learn how to best manage these issues?
2. Nourishing Power Hour
A power hour session is for you if:
You already have a good diet but want to up-level to make sure you’re doing the best you can
You are not suffering with chronic digestive complaints, but are experiencing small upsets that you’d like help troubleshooting on
You have already worked with me in the past and would like to touch base and build on where you are now
You are short on time but you would like to learn more information on what a ‘good’ nutritious diet means for you
Not sure what option is right for you?
What people say about me
Siobhan, Carlow, Ireland
‘I attended one of Suzanne’s on-line workshops during the summer. I found it very interesting and helpful and I will definitely be changing some of my eating habits, especially the intermittent fasting! I have passed on some of Suzanne’s tips to my daughters and I’m making my own granola now.’
Aengus, Galway, Ireland
‘Before I worked with Suzanne I was suffering with IBS like stomach problems. I was experiencing diarrhoea several times a week, along with stomach pains and bloating. I followed the protocol Suzanne gave me and now I haven’t had any diarrhoea in the last month.
As well as learning what foods are better for my gut health, I just want to say a massive thanks to Suzanne for all the advice and support. My young daughter was also experiencing stomach cramps, and with Suzanne’s guidance her symptoms have also cleared up! I have already recommended her to a friend of mine.’
I’ve listed here the most common questions I’m contacted about but if you have any others or are curious about my work then drop me an email.
Who is Nutritional Therapy suitable for?
Nutritional Therapy is suitable for everyone, young and old, for those who would like to alleviate specific symptoms, as well as those who would just like to improve their overall health and wellbeing. In a nutshell, Nutritional Therapy helps you to identify the foods that make you look and feel your best.
How many times will I need to see you for consultations?
This package includes 4 follow-up sessions. After the initial consultation if we both feel you need added support, these can be broken down into more frequent 30 minute sessions. If you feel need additional sessions beyond the package this can be discussed towards the end of the package.
What health concerns do you focus on in your clinic?
Mostly gut issues such as constipation, Diarrhoea, bloating, IBS, Reflux, SIBO, Food allergies/Intolerances, diverticulitis. If you have other medical complaints these can be addressed once your gut issues have improved. However, if I feel you need more support in this additional area than I can give with my expertise I may refer you on to another NT who is more experienced in this area.
Will my health insurance cover my sessions at The Nutrition Clinic?
Health insurance providers in Ireland offer an array of benefits to their members depending on the plan they are on. Here is Irish Life’s benefits page, which offers cashback for Nutritional Therapy visits.
What's the difference between an NT and other nutrition professionals?
A dietician works within the state sector, i.e. a hospital, and uses the science of nutrition to devise eating plans for patients to treat medical conditions. They also work to promote good health by helping to facilitate a positive change in food choices amongst individuals, groups and communities. Nutritionists are qualified to provide general information about food and healthy eating, but not about specific therapeutic diets. They often work in a range of settings, including research, education and in policy development. Nutritionists are not trained in clinical practice.
A nutritional therapist (NT) is qualified to provide individualised dietary and lifestyle advice for those who want to find safe, natural solutions to a specific health concern. During their 3.5 year course in medical and nutritional sciences, they also undertake clinical training as part of their qualification. Properly qualified nutritional therapists are subject to the code of ethics and regulations of the Nutritional Therapists of Ireland (NTOI).
Are the nutrition and lifestyle recommendations you give personalised?
At The Nutrition Clinic, the aim is to get to the root of your health issues and concerns, then to get you on an individualised set of dietary, lifestyle and wellbeing recommendations that will help you achieve your goals in the fastest time possible. And most importantly allow you to stay there long term!
Will you give me a meal plan?
Depending on the health condition I may give sample meal plans and recipes when dealing with specific diets. However, I also aim to all educate you on the foods right for you over our sessions, so that you feel able to adapt your current recipes to suit your needs going forward.
Where do we meet?
All of my sessions are either by Zoom or telephone depending on your preference.
