Dietitian, Nutritionist and Naturopath – Louise Allen
“Hi, I’m Louise Allen. My purpose as a Dietitian, Nutritionist and Naturopath is to identify the key pathways in the body that disrupt health and develop Healthcare solutions to restore balance and wellbeing
I am an Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD) and Naturopath. Qualified in Dietetics, Nutrition, and Naturopathy. It is a rare combination which offers the benefits of both conventional and natural medicine. I also have a Degree in Bach App Science (Db Major Biochemistry/Chemistry), qualifications in secondary teaching, EMMETT Technique, Bowen Therapy and Reflexology.
My Professional Career
I started my career as a Biochemist/chemist and a secondary school teacher. My interest in diet and health directed me into further studies to later qualify as a Dietitian, Nutritionist and Naturopath. I have been practicing as a dietitian and naturopath since 1991. In 1991 I lived in Brisbane, there I established practice as a Dietitian and Naturopath and for 7 years I was active in this role. Later in 1998 I transferred to Melbourne, and continued to practice in Melbourne with other health practitioners. In 2010 I established a health clinic, Access to Health.
Personal Life-Important Aspects
I am very dedicated and take great pride in my profession, which is mirrored in my personal life. I have a husband and three grown children. It is my passion to ensure that my family and I follow a health diet, based on plenty of vegetable and fruit as well as high quality protein and whole grains.
At every stage of my children’s development, from babies through to young adulthood, I have successfully treated them for all their health complaints with herbal and nutritional medicine. From babies to current times, they rarely required to take prescription medications. However, this is not to say I did not seek medical tests and advice in eventful health crises. I believe regular medical assessment is essential, not just for monitoring health, but to ascertain a diagnosis.
There is a story I will share: At the age of seven, my second son was diagnosed with lymphoma (a blood cancer). He received chemotherapy but in addition, I integrated an extensive herbal and nutritional treatment plan. Fortunately, with the combination of modern and natural medicine and blessings, he has remained in remission and has grown to become a healthy, young man. I am grateful to all my children, as they have been great teachers and remain faithful to my natural medicinal remedies.
