Hello, I’m Luanne your low histamine nutritionist.
My mission is to help you to restore your health and live your best life!
I suffered for decades from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), heartburn, eczema, anxiety, food intolerance and hormone issues, which set me on the path to investigate how I could heal myself. I’ve tried almost everything, and understand the difficulties in illnesses that impact all areas of your life. Getting the right help improved my health and made me want to help others.
I have always been interested in health and science. I have a Bachelor of Science and have had a long-term fascination with health and well-being from both a scientific and holistic angle, but after University I moved into the exciting world of Information Technology. I worked and lived in London and Sydney. I was living a frantic lifestyle and subsequently became burnt out! I had anxiety, heartburn, bloating, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and nausea. I spent years seeing doctors and in hospitals getting test after test with no improvement. Eventually, I crashed big time! I developed ME/CFS. I couldn’t get out of bed and had to leave my career.
I recovered some energy and I trained as a nutritionist and health coach and started giving back. Then I started a Masters in Human Nutrition, and burnt out again! ME/CFS was joined by Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain, SIBO, gut dysbiosis, Dysautonomia and Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS). I could not tolerate any of the supplements I would usually use to help myself or my clients. Conventional medicine could only offer me pharmaceuticals that I could not tolerate or did not work. I was at a loss. So I researched again for treatment options.
This is when I found Neuroscience! Using neuroplasticity techniques, the Safe and Sound Protocol, meditation and MAP Rapid rewire processes. I was able to heal my nervous system and allow my body to heal itself. My energy returned, pain disappeared and my hair grew back! My immune system settled and I started to be able to tolerate foods and supplements to support my healing.
Now I work as a nutritional medicine practitioner at Olivo Health and Nutrition and help people with histamine intolerance at Happy Without Histamine. I have a special interest in food sensitivities, gut health, allergies, anxiety, depression, digestive issues, fatigue, and chronic illness such as ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia, and MCAS.
Changes to diet and supplementation where necessary can support your body to heal. Neuroplasticity can support your nervous system and the natural healing power within you. Nutritional medicine can be used as an adjunct to support from your GP, specialist or allied health practitioner, as part of your health team.
I bridge the gap between conventional and holistic medicine by combining a scientific evidence-based approach with naturopathic traditions.
In addition to a Graduate Diploma in Human Nutrition, a Bachelor of Science and an Advanced Diploma in Nutritional Medicine, I have also completed professional courses in gut microbiome restoration, Microba Informed Practitioner (MIP), SIBO, health coaching, NLP, MAP coaching, the safe and sound protocol, iRest meditation, and bio-individual nutrition.
Wishing you vibrant health!
