PRACTITIONERS

Nutrition is a highly dynamic field of science that everyone has an opinion on - that's because we all need to eat! However, there is now an overwhelming amount of information out there on which diets are best (or worse) and a lot of it is highly contradictory. By choosing to work with an Ellipse Health Practitioner, you will always have a trusted source of support to turn to. Our goal is to empower you with knowledge and strategies to help you regain control of your own health and experience food freedom for life.  We enjoy working with clients all over Australia and the world via phone and Skype.

NOOR STRUIK

Dietitian & Nutritionist

Bachelor of Applied Science (Hons) Nutrition & Dietetics
Bachelor of Applied Science Nutrition & Diabetes

Noor is an experienced dietitian from the Netherlands. She completed her BSc (hons) Nutrition & Dietetics in Amsterdam in 2016. As part of her BSc she studied in Cyprus to deepen her knowledge about health psychology and personal adjustment. After completing her BSc, Noor worked at a dietitian practice in the Netherlands for three years. She combined this with a MSc Nutritional Epidemiology & Public Health. During her Masters Research Project Noor investigated the influence of dietary components on pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes status. Noor is currently completing a research internship at the CSIRO in Sydney, focusing on the use of low-carbohydrate diets for type 1 and type 2 diabetes management. In addition to Noor’s experience with diabetes management, she completed additional education and training in FODMAP and low-carbohydrate diets. Noor believes the psychology around nutrition and self-care should play a central role while improving diet and lifestyle, & therefore likes to focus on eating behaviour to target the core of the (nutritional) problem. Noor is also available at The Nourishing State.
