Megan Crockart is a qualified Clinical Nutritionist and Yoga Teacher, based in Brisbane, Queensland. In person at Hawthorne or Tingalpa plus Phone and Online consultations available – see Consultation Options/Prices.
Megan has always held an interest in food (a self confessed “Foodie” but also years of home cooking) along with health, fitness and exercise (Megan has practiced yoga for over 30 years!) Megan was drawn to natural therapies over 20 years ago as they can be used for so many conditions, not just one illness/condition with rarely the side effects pharmaceutical drugs have. Megan has a passion for helping people and see them achieve their health goals and has been actively practising for over 13 years.
Megan was a legal secretary for many years, but her passion for food and health led her to study nutrition. She studied part time for seven years and completely understands the pressure of full time work/part-time student and the impact this can have on energy, stress levels, immune support, general wellness and wellbeing.
She believes that good diet, exercise and lifestyle changes alone can often be enough to combat many illnesses and diseases with prevention always being better than cure. Many conditions can be triggered due to nutritional deficiencies and Megan likes to focus on bringing these nutritional deficiencies into balance within the body using food as medicine, nutritional supplements, exercise and lifestyle prescriptions.
A mother of young two sons, this is even more important to her to provide a healthy diet and lifestyle for her growing family.
She considers good food and a healthy lifestyle as extremely important however so too is enjoying life, therefore achieving good health should be about creating a nutritional and lifestyle balance. Her philosophy is that although food and health are very important so is enjoying life and therefore unless a person needs to restrict specific foods for specific conditions, she feels that all foods can be enjoyed in moderation, although some foods enjoyed more than others. An occasional indulgence is fine but make the most of it and indulge in good quality, savour and enjoy every moment.
As a fully qualified holistic Clinical Nutritionist, Megan likes to help people achieve good health by equipping them with nutritional knowledge whilst also providing individually tailored dietary/lifestyle plans, cooking tips and recipes.
