Work with me
Our focus is on guiding you to achieve optimum health & wellbeing.
The aim of every consultation is to listen to you and get to the very bottom all of your health and wellbeing concerns. The bonus of spending 60-90 minutes together during your initial consult is that can ask all of the questions we need in order to investigate further to best locate the ‘root cause’ of your health concern and work with you to develop a plan to get you back to feeling the very best you can.
We see a vast range of clients, specialising in women’s and paediatric health. This includes fertility, preconception & pregnancy support, hormonal balancing, gut health, mental & neurotransmitter health, food intolerances & allergies and so much more.
How it works:
Our Consultation Process
Our indepth consultation process allows for identification of root causes and continual education to allow for lifestyle changes rather than providing band-aid quick fix approaches that often result in the issue arising again in the future. We cannot always simply solve the issues within one consult however we aim to guide you through positive changes over a series of consultations to allow you to achieve long-term, realistic healthy changes that fit into your lifestyle.
1. Get Started
Book your initial consultation.
2. Assessing Changes
A follow up consultation.
3. Ongoing Changes & Support
Ongoing return consultations.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where are you located?
We are a completely online clinic and many of our clients within a normal day are from a variety of states within Australia, allowing us to service remote clients and those under restrictions, allowing modern life to continue normally for all. In addition to that, we operate an online dispensary and can provide online scripts for those that require medications , supplements or general health food items and can be ordered online and delivered to your door. The Nutritionista Clinic is physically located in Wallan, Victoria.
What qualifications do you have?
Our resident Clinical Nutritionist has many years of clinical practice and has completed the following:
Cert IV in Fitness (Personal Training) – Master Trainer Level 1,
Pre & Post Natal Exercise Specialist,
Bachelors in Health Science (Nutritional Medicine),
Masters in Women’s Health Medicine,
Masters in Reproductive Medicine.
How many appointments will I need?
This is different for everyone. The number of consultations required with Megyn, will depend entirely on your initial nutrition assessment, your goals of treatment and your results. Within your initial appointment, it will be discussed, and you will get a better understanding on how often your case will need to be reviewed. If you simply present with an acute illness, like a cold, we can simply make a few therapeutic nutritional tweaks, give a few lifestyle recommendations, and possibly prescribe a supplement that can be delivered to your door (Available Australia-wide) if that’s what you’re after. Or if your case is complex and you require ongoing care then we will discuss your requirements and work in what’s best for you in your individual case.
What should I bring to my appointment?
The more information that can be provided, the better your consultation will be. We strongly suggest that you provide:
A copy of your most recent blood tests (highly recommended),
All medications, over the counter supplements, that you consume regularly,
Details of any meal plans or diets that you are following,
Any other relevant medical reports/records.
Do I need to have a blood test? Or my GP said my results were all normal?
We do not recommend getting unnecessary testing. If you have had blood tests done within the last 6 months then please forward a copy, even if they are within the ‘normal’ ranges. Please be aware that just because your results are within the normal ranges that does not mean you are free of symptoms. The ranges are overly broad and with the assistance from Megyn, as a skilled Nutritional Biochemist, identifying low-normal or high-normal results can be a key indicator that there is something going on that needs specialist attention.
What conditions do you work with?
Megyn has a vast range of clinical experience, from general healthy eating to assisting with:
emotional & intuitive eating,
hormonal imbalances & conditions,
a range of women’s health concerns such as PCOS, endometriosis, irregularities within the menstrual cycle,
all stages of reproduction from fertility, IVF & ART, pregnancy, postpartum recovery and repletion,
dietary allergies and intolerances,
gut conditions (IBS, crohns, coeliacs, FODMAP, etc),
paediatric nutrition from failure to thrive to fussy eating, meeting growth/nutrient requirements and disordered eating for teenagers, sports nutrition, and so much more!
Our core values are based on a non-diet approach framework and will work with you on incorporating a balanced diet while also listening to your body and choosing foods that work for your individual needs. We strongly believe this encourages and maintains a healthy relationship with food and your body.
Can I use my Private Health Insurance?
We sure can. However, we have no way of checking your own nutrition coverage. We will provide you with a detailed receipt after your consult so you can forward it on to your private health insurance provider to claim your benefits. We are accredited providers for many funds including HBF, CUA and AHM but please be aware that they are rolling out ongoing changes due to telehealth provisions during lockdowns and we are not held liable for any changes they may issue in terms of your coverage. We recommended you confirm with them prior to booking your appointments.
