How Menstrual Cycles Affect IBS and What You Can Do to Help
I'm Chrystie, Registered Clinical Nutritionist.
Having personally struggled with IBS, SIBO, weight problems and hormone imbalances for years, I know first-hand how frustrating/time consuming/expensive navigating your health journey can be.
After seeing countless medical professionals who couldn't help me, I went on a journey to uncover what was really causing me to feel so out of whack, and how to fix it for good. I even went back to school and studied nutritional science, with the goal of helping others in the same position I was once in.
I now no longer suffer from IBS, or any of the health issues that plagued me.
I created The Gut Health Nutritionist, so that you can have the knowledge and support I wish I had found, and overcome your health woes, smash your goals and live the high energy, symptom free life you deserve.
Hear from my clients
I am so thankful to Chrystie for helping me to resolve the symptoms surrounding my years long struggle with SIBO and uncovering the root cause of my health issues. Before doing this program I had worked with many other practitioners that were not able to return me to the state of health and wellbeing that I was able to achieve working with Chrystie. She was extremely patient in working with me to figure out what was causing continued symptoms and her SIBO program was extremely effective in eradicating symptoms and increasing my ability to eat many more foods. I would recommend her to anyone suffering from chronic gut problems or related health conditions as her expertise is life-changing!
For 16 years I have been desperately seeking help for various health issues. Within my first consultation with Chrystie, I knew she was going to be different than the rest. Chrystie is the first health care professional I have ever worked with who has truly listened to me and taken me seriously regarding some challenging and less than obvious health concerns. She not only listens but she sincerely cares
I can not explain how beneficial this program was for me. After being diagnosed with PCOS in 2018 I struggled for two years with weight gain and unhealthy lifestyle. I went to multiple nutritionists until someone pointed me to Chrystie. This program was the last thing I was willing to try to improve the condition and I’m so glad I did. I was able to pinpoint exactly what causes my symptoms and work on reducing them. I’m finally looking and feeling a lot better and a lot more like myself
I completed Chrystie’s protocol just before Christmas and it is the first Christmas in years where I’ve felt relaxed and comfortable, and able to enjoy food and drink freely with basically no bloating or discomfort. Thank you, I’m so glad I found this.
This protocol helped me to understand and overcome digestive issues I have suffered from my whole life. I have spent thousands on naturopaths, tests, supplements and doctors, and this is the only thing that actually helped me!
I am so incredibly happy to report that (even though I never thought possible) I am able to live like a normal human being again. I feel more energy, mental clarity, happiness, and digestive health than I’ve ever felt in my life.
Work With Me
Get to the root cause of your gut issues and related health problems through my personalized process designed to bridge the gap between functional medicine and clinical nutrition, for clients with imbalances beyond the reach of diet and exercise alone.
With so much conflicting information online, it can be confusing, expensive and time consuming to navigate your health journey on your own.
I know because I've been there too.
I'm here to take you down the fast lane and help you to find answers and solutions to your health problems. I'll help uncover why you're so bloated all the time, what is causing your IBS, why you can't lose weight, why you have suddenly developed adult acne. All those problems no one seems to have answers for.
I can help you understand what your symptoms mean and why even though your conventional test results may be "normal", you know things aren't quite right.
Using proven research and clinical experience I will help you find solutions to your health problems you may have been lead to believe can not be fixed.
I'm here to show you that you don't need to live your life restricting foods to help manage symptoms, taking medication, in chronic pain, or feeling like your weight is out of your control.
Instead, we will work together to get to the bottom of your health complaints so you can continue living the high energy, happy and fulfilling life you deserve.
Does this sound like support you’re ready for?

How to get started:
Simply click the button below and book a free 20 min Introductory Consultation with me. This consult is designed to discuss your health concerns and goals, and gives you the opportunity to meet me first so that we can be sure this program is a good fit for you.
Q. Do you offer one off consultations, or is the 12 week program the only option?
A: If you're not ready to commit to 12 weeks, I do offer an option to book appointment by appointment, and pay as you go, with no commitment required. We discuss this option during the free introductory consultation, and you can then decide what feels best for you. For both my 12 week program and casual client bookings, it's required to start with a free introductory consultation so that we can meet first. This helps to ensure that you feel I am the right person to help you before commiting, and helps me to ensure I can actually help you!
Q. Do you work with children?
A: Yes! I am qualified to work with children, and do regularly consult with children and their parent/s.
Q. Do you only work with digestive issues, or can you help me with general nutrition, weight loss, or other health problems?
A. I work with clients who have a broad range of complaints and goals beyond digestive problems, including weight loss goals, difficulty sleeping, hormonal problems (including endometriosis and PCOS), skin problems, Type 2 Diabetes, hypertension and autoimmunity. Most of these have a strong link to the gut. However, I'm happy to work with any health issues that I feel qualified to assist with from a nutritional perspective. If I think there is someone better for the job, I will refer you to a different practitioner where possible.
Q. Do you offer tests, like GIMap, SIBO breath test, DUTCH test etc.?
A. Yes, I am trained in interpreting and providing appropriate treatments for a broad range of functional tests. I will recommend a test if I think it is going to provide important information about your underlying issues. I can access testing in most countries, so you can order them locally, without a doctor's referral. I don't order tests that are notoriously inaccurate or scientifically invalid, such as food intolerance tests. I am also happy to review any tests that you have already had during a consultation.
