An understanding and empathetic nutritionist

I’m a clinical nutritionist based in Gardenvale, Melbourne who also works online. I help people with:

  • digestive disorders, such as IBS
  • food intolerance
  • allergies and histamine intolerance
  • mental health, such as anxiety and depression
  • chronic illness
  • fatigue (ME/CFS)
  • behavioural disorders.

If you’ve been to a doctor only to be checked out and told nothing more can be done, that’s where I come in to improve your quality of life.

Having suffered health issues including IBS, chronic fatigue and food intolerances (histamine and gluten), I understand the difficulties clients’ face – from finding the time and effort to eat well to the frustration of not being able to do what others can.

What makes me different to other nutritionists?

I bridge the gap between conventional and holistic medicine by combining a scientific evidence-based approach with naturopathic traditions.

In other words, I offer the best of both worlds.

In addition to a Bachelor of Science and Advanced Diploma in Nutritional Medicine, I have also completed professional courses in gut microbiome restoration, SIBO and Bioindividual nutrition. I am currently completing my masters at Deakin University.

I enjoy finding solutions to problems and am passionate about helping my clients live better, healthier lives.


Luanne is so personable and approachable, I was very comfortable talking to her and she had so much great advice to share. I recommend Luanne to anyone who is looking for nutrition and wellness support, you will not regret your choice!

Luanne Hopkinson, you are amazing! Thoughtful, patient and tough in the best way possible! Thank you a million times over! I have learned so much from you and become a better person.

I’ve been doing the superfood/raw food thing for sometime … I never thought I would learn as much as I did nor did I think I would have much of an impact embarking on a sugar detox.

Luanne’s program was not only super informative – I was surprised just how much sugar there was in so much savoury foods – it was also amazingly simple to follow! Luanne was also willing to work with me to workout how to change the recipes to suit my particular tastes and allergies as well as catering for the fact that I have a tiny fridge/freezer, we were even able to workout what I could have on a night out without departing too greatly from the plan.

My verdict: A great educational and easy to follow program – plus as an added bonus l dropped a couple of kilos in the 10 days.
