Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Gut Health and the Microbiome
Food allergies & intolerance
Hello, I am Nadia Nevstad, an Accredited Practising Dietitian located on the Central Coast of NSW. My areas of specialty include gut health and the microbiome, focussing on gastrointestinal disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
With so many of the people I know and care about suffering from the debilitating symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, I became extremely passionate in this area. After completing a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Newcastle, I decided to broaden my knowledge and education with Monash University. Focussing on Disorders of the GI such as IBS, I use current evidence based best practice to safely and effectively implement a low FODMAP diet in clinical practice.
Working with so many clients that suffered with IBS, I very quickly understood that it is more than just diet that can trigger uncomfortable symptoms and consequently created The Holistic IBS Management Program. This program undertakes a holistic approach to the treatment of IBS, incorporating both stress management and exercise together with the Low FODMAP diet, so that you are able to learn and manage symptoms of IBS, finally allowing you to live your life without needing to locate the nearest restrooms, or find clothes to fit your growing waistline when you go out to dinner.
The Holistic IBS Management Program is designed to empower IBS sufferers to make food choices that are right for their unique needs and ultimately gain control of uncomfortable gastrointestinal symptoms such as bloating, abdominal cramping, constipation and/or diarrhoea. I understand that no two people are the same and that every person has unique triggers and symptoms requiring an individualised approach to dietary advice.
Working together, we can determine the specific foods that trigger your symptoms and relieve any stress that you may feel on a day to day basis. We will deepen your understanding and ability to choose foods that work for you, and help you to incorporate exercise without having to run to the restrooms. We will give the the tools, strategies, and support to meet your ultimate health goals and say goodbye to uncomfortable symptoms for good.
