Clinical Nutrition Services
Good nutrition is the foundation of great health
Our Nutritionists are Degree qualified in health science (nutritional medicine) and adhere wholly to QIM’s health and treatment philosophies and genuinely care about QIM’s patients’ wellbeing.
Typically, they work closely with QIM’s Doctors and their patients’ help them to understand and transition to a new therapeutic diet when prescribed by their QIM Doctor.
They are also involved in the in-house functional testing offered at QIM, so they are well-placed to discuss what in-house tests may be suitable for you, answer questions, take specimens and provide educational resources based on your test result. Functional testing is an important part of the clinical assessment process.
All of QIM’s Nutritionists have undertaken further study in Nutrigenomics, a fascinating field of science that studies the interaction between nutrients and genes. Knowing your genetic makeup is the ultimate Preventative Health and may provide the answers you have been seeking and the key to finally make progress in a particular area of your health.
Excitingly, our Nutritionists are also working behind the scenes on projects that will soon expand the range of services available to QIM patients.
