Fiona Kane is a Nutritional Medicine Practitioner, Holistic Counsellor, Professional Speaker and the founder of Informed Health.
Fiona discovered that nutritional medicine and natural therapies was the key to good health after several years of serious health problems where she suffered from some small strokes resulting in permanent brain damage and was diagnosed with two auto immune diseases.
Informed Health was created when Fiona became aware that people going through health challenges like her need to be heard, they need clear science based advice coupled with understanding and support. There is not always a single answer but many factors that promote healing.
Fiona who has been in practice for 14 years has her own unique style with clients naturally moving between nutrition, counselling and coaching as required.
Fiona is also happy to stay in contact with your doctor/s if required. Healing often requires working with a team of various health professionals who are all focused on their patient/client’s health. More about Fiona here.

At Informed Heath Nutritional Wellbeing, Our Nutritionists Fiona and Rebecca will help you achieve your health goals. Our small team aims to provide a supportive, nurturing, informative and ultimately healing experience for you. You will learn how to nurture and nourish yourself to health. We use a combination of nutritional medicine, counselling and coaching techniques.
You will learn very practical information on health and nutrition and if required, strategies around stress management and emotional eating.
Why choose Informed Health?
At Informed Health Nutritional Wellbeing, we have created Your Ultimate Wellbeing Program which equips you with the priceless knowledge of how to eat well for life.
You will learn how to connect with and support your body to help you. You will also learn the power of your narrative and how it contributes to your results or lack thereof. Of course we will teach you all about healthy eating, including having a healthy digestive system and microbiome.
We provide you with our Nutritional and Recipe Guide and for those doing Your Ultimate Wellbeing Program, our Ultimate Wellbeing Guide; both written by our Nutritionists.
We also have other programs (look under programs and packages).
You’ll get understanding and empathy
Fiona has battled with weight problems at various times, thyroid disease, auto immune diseases, migraines, food sensitivities and has even had several small strokes in her early twenties.
“My health journey inspired me to help others”. I am now a qualified Nutritionist, but in many ways, my early health journey taught me far more than a textbook ever did.“I never judge – I’ve walked on that rocky road back to health myself”.
You will be dealing with nutritional experts
Fiona and Rebecca are qualified and experienced Nutritionists.
You’ll feel empowered!
We provide you with guidance, education, advice and encouragement so that you can make your own decisions. It’s about giving you the power to take charge of your own health so that you don’t feel helpless and powerless when dealing with health professionals.
You’ll get a holistic approach that achieves results
We will take the time to ensure that we fully understand your needs; and also ensure that you fully understand what needs to be done to get results. We are holistic in our approach – we treat the whole person not just the health problem.
Your treatment plan will be tailored to your specific needs
You are totally unique, that’s what makes you wonderful! And because you are unique, so too is your treatment plan. Your treatment plan will be tailored specifically to your particular circumstances and lifestyle.
We may be able to help you to reduce the need for strong medications
If you want to lose weight, manage cholesterol or regulate your blood sugar or control your mood without using strong medications, there are ways to do this in many cases. We can show you how. However, we will never interfere with what your Doctor has prescribed or ask you to stop taking your medication. We are qualified to prescribe supplementation safely taking your medications into account, we are also knowledgeable about how your medications work and what kind of nutritional deficiencies are caused by certain medications.
You will be heard
Sometimes clients come to us because they feel that they simply haven’t been listened to before. Many have been asking for help for a long time and their concerns have been dismissed, or have been told that they simply have to “live with” their symptoms. They are so happy to finally be taken seriously. We often hear “I felt like I was going crazy”. People tell us that they are so happy and relieved to find answers and solutions to things they have been told to live with! Although we love using nutritional medicine, and understand the vital importance of nutrition for health, we don’t limit our treatments to nutrition, it is just the starting point.
Your medical regimen will not be compromised
Together, we will work in support of your medical treatments, not in competition with them. Your medical treatments will never be interfered with, and nor will we recommend changes that will compromise their effectiveness. We happily keep in contact with your medical doctor when required.
You’ll no longer be confused about nutrition, ever again!
We have a very different approach to nutrition! When you come to visit us, we will myth-bust a lot of nutrition stories. You’ll walk out of our clinic with a correct understanding of nutrition for life. We also know that while nutrition is a foundation for health, it is certainly not just about nutrition.
You’ve found someone who can actually HELP you!
At Informed Health, you’ve found people who genuinely care and who want to help you achieve your health goals. We will also help with “what gets in the way”. When you know what you need to do but just don’t do it!
It’s your turn…
