Laura Ballantyne, Nutrition
Total years in practice: 3
My name is Laura Ballantyne. I AM AN ACCREDITED PRACTISING DIETITIAN & NUTRITIONIST - the face behind the ‘the fertility dietitian’I have an in-depth understanding of the human body and its interaction with nutrients. I use my knowledge of medicine, integrative and functional nutrition, and evidence-based natural medicines, combined with the most current research to develop a treatment plan just for YOU.
I include lab tests (hormone studies, gut health, breath testing, nutritional bloods, thyroid etc.), gene testing, and consider the mind-body connection addressing sleep, stress and other important lifestyle components.
The nutrition therapy I provide compliments and enhances medical treatment from your GP or specialist; improving fertility, optimising treatment and management of hormone conditions such as PCOS, increasing the success rates of IVF, and of course enjoying a happy and healthy pregnancy!
Do you see yourself with a regular menstrual cycle, balanced hormones, symptom free, energised and happy? Do you see yourself with a baby, breastfeeding and totally loved up?
… but feel this is made impossible because of your hormones, medical conditions, irregular menstrual cycle, fatigue, and 1 million medical appointments reaching dead ends?
I grew up in the Apple Isle (TASMANIA!). I was one of those people who swore they wouldn’t go to university… How that changed.
I moved to Geelong for dietetics and ended up studying for the next 5 years…
