Nutritional medicine provides a natural path to wellness.
Whether you are suffering from a chronic illness, women's health issues or have a child diagnosed on the autism spectrum... I can help!
Utilising food as medicine, together with your body's natural ability to heal, I support you on your path to achieving and maintaining optimum health.
Nutritional Medicine focuses on the whole person not just the isolated set of symptoms. I spend time with you, listening to your history and looking for interactions between your genetic tendencies, dietary habits environmental and lifestyle factors that influence your long-term health and chronic diseases.
I focus on nutrition and structural health as well as emotional health to ensure you are being treated holistically and not just being "patched up".
In addition to nutritional medicine, I am also a certified EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) Practitioner and utilise this modality to support you in releasing emotional trauma that may be impacting your health.
My clinic is located on the Gold Coast and for your convenience I also offer appointments via Skype/Phone.

"It is with great pride that I present the great transformation that I have been going through over the past 3 years thanks to a great friend and skilled nutritional practitioner named Jacinta Callaghan. She has been an inspiration and dear confidant in this journey from being an unwell person to one of vitality and mental alertness.
I am now into my second year of nutritional medicine and have seen not only in my life the benefit of nutritional medicine but what it has done for many people that I have known.
Jacinta is continuing to service the people of Ipswich in the relentless way she does. I am truly indebted to her hard work and dedication and hopefully one day I will be able to follow in her footsteps.
Thanks Jacinta from the bottom of my heart. I am deeply grateful for what you have done for me and what you have shown me."
"To keep the body in good health is a duty...
otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear."
"Jacinta, all I can say is that in the past year you have changed my life for the better twice so far. Once you worked out that I react adversely to dairy and again when I cut out sugar on your advice. Have not felt this good for almost 20 years which is when the issues all began... Thank you! .." - MT
