An understanding and empathetic nutritionist

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

  • histamine intolerance
  • digestive disorders, such as IBS
  • other food intolerance
  • allergies
  • mental health, such as anxiety and depression
  • chronic illness
  • fatigue (ME/CFS)
  • children’s behavioural disorders
  • Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS)

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, health coaching and Bio-individual nutrition. I am currently completing a Master’s degree at Deakin University.

I have also experienced histamine intolerance, MCAS and fatigue first hand so I understand what its like to deal with these conditions. I enjoy finding solutions to problems and am passionate about helping my clients live better, healthier lives.

Your low histamine nutritionist,



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!

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.

If you are in this group and haven’t bought her ebooks yet, do it now. I am sorry I waited to buy them. I had other ebooks, meal plans or recipes, but Luanne’s recipes are good enough to feed to everyone in the family, great flavor, good variety, well organized. I wish I had them when I started this journey in December! Thanks Luanne Hopkinson!!!!!!!! Finally a meal plan from someone who knows how to cook!

Thanks so much for compiling this book. I literally teared up when I realized I could eat everything (except eggs). It’s been difficult finding inspiration when you feel like all your previous favourite foods are off limits…Especially when you love food as much as I do!

I started Gupta program in conjunction with Happy without histamine food plan and feel they are both really great. I feel it has changed my life.
Well on the physical level probably mostly because of happy without histamines I’ve
experienced: IBS symptoms are almost none existent, my ears are no longer itching and
extremely inflamed, my throat is not swelling randomly after meals that normally had been fine, seasonal allergies are much better. Plus my wife and I enjoy the food!
Gupta program: I was having depression, anxiety and severe anger outbursts followed by several days of sleep. All of which are substantially better. I’m more optimistic and trust in the program.
I’m starting to feel I can begin to start living life.
