Whats the difference to nutritionist and dietitian?
While the terms “nutritionist” and “dietitian” are often used interchangeably, there are some differences between these two professions.
A nutritionist is a professional who studies and advises on the nutritional content of food and its impact on health, but their qualifications can vary widely. However, it is essential to ensure your nutritionist has a standard of training such as Leahs’ Advance Diploma of Nutritional Medicine at Australasian College of Natural Therapies, Torrens University and is registered with an association such as Australian Traditional Medicine Society ATMS.
A nutritionist as well as providing nutritional advice to persons with food allergies, diabetes and other conditions, can order and read blood, urine or stool tests and prescribe higher quality supplements.
In contrast, a dietitian is a regulated healthcare professional who has completed a specific course of study and must adhere to strict standards of professional practice.
Dietitians are qualified to provide medical nutrition therapy and to diagnose and treat medical conditions related to nutrition, such as diabetes and food allergies. Dietitians can only recommend over-the-counter medications.

Naturopath Central Coast
Leah’s decision to be qualified in both nutrition and naturopathy is not uncommon because both professions emphasize the importance of holistic, natural approaches to health and wellness.
Naturopaths focus on treating the whole person, rather than just the symptoms of a disease, and they use natural remedies and therapies to support the body’s ability to heal itself. Nutrition is a key component of naturopathic medicine, as it plays a critical role in maintaining and promoting health.
By providing guidance on healthy eating habits and nutritional supplementation, a naturopathic nutritionist like Leah can help support the body’s natural healing processes and improve overall health and well-being.
In addition, Leah can work with patients to identify any food sensitivities or allergies and recommend dietary modifications to support their health goals. By combining the principles of naturopathy with the knowledge and expertise of a nutritionist, Leah can provide a comprehensive approach to health and wellness that can benefit you..
