By analysing the nutrients in your diet and how well you are able to utilise them, Lindsay can specify a dietary plan for you which will help improve your condition and reduce further risk of disease.

Lindsay offers a complementary integrated nutritional service, providing dietary services to support medical treatment, and reduce the risk of chronic disease through optimum nutrition.
