Brisbane Nutritionist Appointments now at Vision Psychology!
At Vision Psychology, we understand that mental and physical health are interconnected – which is why we have recently added a Brisbane Nutritionist to our team of psychologists and counselling professionals.
Introducing Beverley Dorgan, a Brisbane nutritionist with a special interest in supporting better mental health through food and nutrition.
We are what we eat, as the old saying goes, and for optimal physical health we should be consuming a varied diet that includes foods such as fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, fish, whole grains, meat, pulses, etc. But what many don’t realise is that our diet impacts our mental health as well!
Brisbane Nutritionist for Children, Adolescents and Adults
We’ve all seen or even experienced the impact certain foods can have on our mood and outlook. The classic example is when children at a party are running around on a sugar high after consuming lollies, red cordial or soft drink!
Research is starting to provide evidence of what many of us have suspected for a long time: our gut has an important role to play in much more that just our digestion, with some scientists even referring to it as our ‘second brain’.
There are so many reasons to see a nutritionist! The whole area of diet and nutrition is plagued with fads and misinformation, to the point where many of us are no longer sure what constitutes a healthy diet.
And what about intolerances to gluten, those with food allergies, or who prefer a vegan or vegetarian diet – how do they ensure they receive the nutrition they need?
Could dietary changes really help to improve mood, relieve stress, depression and anxiety, even learning and behavioural challenges in children?
If you are looking for professional advice and personal support from a nutritionist for you or your family, no referral is required. It’s as simple as making an appointment with Brisbane Nutritionist Beverley Dorgan, by calling Vision Psychology on (07) 3088 5422; or, you could try Online Booking.
