Service Description

Ellipse Health Dietitians pride ourselves on using Medical Nutrition Therapy and Evidence-Based Practice to develop personalised dietary interventions that are carefully structured to help you reach and maintain your health goals. If you're ready to regain control of your health for good, this is the service for you! The initial consultation is 60 minutes and will be delivered via Zoom video or phone (your preference). You can choose to work with Thomas Paavola, Maryanne Ridani, or Megan Hasick. The Ellipse Health team is led by Dr Jessica Turton PhD who has developed a unique, nutrient-focused approach to dietetic consulting that optimises patient health outcomes. Your Ellipse Health Dietitian uses the initial consultation to learn all about you and your health history to understand the bigger picture. They will collect information on your medical history, medications, social circumstances, recent blood work (pathology), anthropometry (body weight, blood pressure), clinical signs and symptoms of nutrient deficiency/excess, full diet history, current eating patterns and nutritional supplement regimen. Ellipse Health Dietitians use every piece of information you provide in this initial assessment to identify your top nutritional priorities. There are your primary nutrition-related problems preventing you from reaching your health goals. For example, we might identify that your current diet is lacking in omega-3 fats, calcium and vitamin B12, while being excessive in carbohydrates and omega-6 fats. Your diet, supplement and educational interventions will be targeted at addressing these nutritional priorities so you can secure long-term success. It is not possible for us to address all your nutritional priorities in the first consult. We generally identify 4-8 nutritional problems and aim to address 1-2 per session. Your diet, supplement and educational interventions will be delivered to you across 3-6 diet review sessions. You can book these on an as-needed basis via the 'services' tab on our website OR you might like to book these all at once to secure your favourite time-slot. Do what works for you! You are in the driver's seat. Please note - bookings with Dr Jessica Turton must be made through a separate service. Go back to our services page to book with Dr Turton or email our practice manager if you are unsure who to work with (
