Learn how food can be thy medicine
Get healthy kids without nagging
Are your emotions ruling your diet?
Core Nutrition is a Weight Inclusive, Non-Dieting and Body-Positivity aligned practice.
Hello! I'm Elke Supple, Accredited Nutritionist (AN) and Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) and founder of Core Nutrition.
I have three special interest areas that I work in:
One is in eating habits and behaviours, sensory eating, body image and weight concerns, and recovery from dieting and eating disorders.
Another interest is in food intolerances and allergies, and all health conditions pertaining to the gut, liver and pancreas.
My other special interest is in auto-immune and hormone conditions, such as of the thyroid, arthritis or fibromyalgia.
I choose to teach and use wholefoods as Medical Nutrition Therapy as much as possible. With over 19 years of experience, with a focus on my areas of interest, I use a collection of scientific evidence-based approaches to deliver the support and education you need, in a way that's colourful, makes-sense and is respectful (no shame blaming here). This way you can "help yourself" in the future.
I believe that optimal health is possible for everyone who chooses it, no matter your background, your medical conditions or your size. I work with adults, children and their families to help bring joy around food in your home.
My aim is to make a significant and lasting impact on your health and well-being. Visit me at one of my locations, or via Telehealth phone or online video consultation. Here at Core Nutrition, we believe that you are a shining star, and your life is worth fighting for - and WE are your game-changer.
Welcome to Core Nutrition.
