Hey there! I am Juliette, a Gut Health Dietitian.
First of all, thank you.
By reading my articles you are helping me in my mission: help people with digestive issues.
I do hope you are finding useful information and practical tools through my website.
Who I am and how I become a Gut Health Dietitian
I’ve always been into sports. At the age of 13, I started to run more and more intensely (I was doing steeple and cross-country) for competition, and my health began to be a concern. After a hospital stay, I was referred to a dietitian specialized in sports nutrition, and it has been a life revelation.
At this time I didn’t know anything about nutrition, and I’ve been eating a lot of ready-to-go food.
As soon I have started following my new dietary plan, my general health improved and my run performance were so much better.
I became aware of the impact that a balanced and an individualized diet could have on our lifestyle and health.
However, despite all my new diet, my gut health wasn’t improving a lot: I was still very constipated and I was suffering from belly pain almost every day (I’ve even been under PPI at the age of 16!)
After my three-years degree I wasn’t feeling ready to work and I wanted to travel. I stayed almost a year in New Zealand.
I fall in love of the country (and a kiwi boy) so I decided to stay!
I don’t fully remember when I heard about the low FODMAP diet and IBS, but through my reading and my professional practice, I’ve realized that I wasn’t the only one suffering from daily pain, and there was even a name for all my symptoms!
After reading tens of books and studies, I’ve followed the Monash University course.
What do I do now
I’ve started my own practice in August 2020 and I offer online consultation.
I also created a online program for people with IBS (only in French for the moment), and recipe ebooks. For more information about my Low FODMAP diet quick starter guide, click here.
I am currently enrolled in a Master of Nutrition & Dietetics in Massey University to become a NZ Register Dietitian.
My vision of nutrition
My vision of nutrition is holistic and I use other alternative therapies which are for me an excellent complement to the Western medicine . I want to help you understand the reason for the symptoms, and not “cure” them with medication or general advice.
I am convinced that diet, physical activity and above all, a healthy microbiota can prevent many diseases.

My goal is to help people to get better and healthier through their diet and their lifestyle.
As I always say: “eating healthy is good, but digesting food to be able to enjoy its benefits is better!” And whenever you suffer from digestive issues or you want to a plant-based diet, there are many things you need to know about food!
Hope this will help you to know me a little better.
