At Nutrition Matters addressing your concerns is our priority.
During your initial appointment we will discuss your main concerns regarding your diet and your health. Then we will discuss what you eat and the aspects of your life that affect what you eat, such as your food preferences, food intolerances, and when and where you eat. Whether you want to discuss healthy eating generally or you have a referral for dietary advice to manage a particular diagnosis the goal is:
Some people will want a structured eating plan. Others will prefer some guidelines to help them make the changes at their own pace. Improving eating habits is a wonderfully positive experience. The benefit to your health is unquestionable, especially if you can combine it with some enjoyable physical activity.
Your initial consult is about one hour.
Review appointments are arranged as necessary. Changing life-long habits does not happen "over night". There is good evidence that more regular appointments lead to a greater likelihood of success. At your review appointments:
Your first review appointment is up to 30 minutes.
Feeing discouraged? Making little or no progress? This is when you need to come and discuss what is stopping you. Are there barriers to change you are facing? Are you trying to change too much too fast?
Home visits can be arranged at a small additional cost.
On-line and telephone consults:
These can be arranged; however, private health funds will generally not provide a rebate. Please check with your health fund.
A detailed computer generated nutritional analysis of your daily food intake with comparisons to the Recommended Daily Intake of specific nutrients can be arranged at an additional cost.
Fees charged are time based, and in line with those charged by the profession, and with rebates provided by Medicare and Department of Veterans' Affairs.
Private Health Rebates:
If you have Ancillary Health cover you will generally receive a rebate for dietitian consults. However, there are various tables and it is suggested that you check with your health fund whether your particular health insurance cover includes dietitian consults.
Nutrition Matters is registered with Medicare. Clients who are referred by their doctors on a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) plan, which replaces the Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) plan, are eligible for a Medicare rebate. However, there is a gap payment.
Department of Veterans' Affairs:
Nutrition Matters is registered with Department of Veterans' Affairs and see DVA clients referred by their GPs. Gold card clients have their fees covered completely by DVA.
Needing some inspiration about meals that are healthy and relatively quick and easy to prepare? If you can organise a group of five friends for a session, you will be able to watch the food being cooked, taste it, and get practical tips and information about food and nutrition.
