15 Jan Meet Fiona Stock – Children’s Nutritionist
Fiona is a respected Naturopath and Nutritionist, trained and experienced health coach, educator, mentor and author. Fiona has over 20 years of Natural Medicine industry wisdom combined with a successful practice and extensive clinical experience.
She has successfully treated thousands of patients for a wide-range of conditions focusing on gut health utilising evidence-based naturopathic philosophy alongside integrative nutrition. After nearly two decades of owning and directing one of Australia’s largest natural medicine clinics, she understood it was time to begin empowering families to transform their children’s health through education.
For the past 4 years she has been wholeheartedly committed to researching and writing about the crisis facing children’s health. During this time Fiona gained specialised training with the Medical Academy of Paediatric Special Needs (MAPS) and Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) and also became a Jamie Oliver Food Revolution Ambassador. She created a unique on-line learning program dedicated to teaching parents the underlying cause of their child’s health condition.
Rob Knight, Professor of Paediatrics at the University of California, a leading researcher and co-founder of the American Gut Project, mapping gut health across America has edited Fiona’s work to date.
Her enthusiasm on the subject has led her to present talks on the critical importance of gut health and its relationship to optimal brain and immune functions. Fiona has always been fascinated in the concept of food is medicine and prior to becoming a naturopathic practitioner gained extensive experience in the food industry, running her wholefoods catering business and teaching people how to cook delicious healthy meals over a 10 year period.
