About Robyn Rees Registered Dietitian
I opened my private practice in 2006 working in the areas of chronic diseases of lifestyle, insulin resistance, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), corporate wellness, and took an interest in women’s health with a special interest in endometriosis and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCO), and kidney disease. One of the biggest challenges I encounter from people when I meet them is changing their mindset from that “dieting” mode which includes deprivation, starvation and a strict all or nothing approach, to a healthy balanced way of eating where most foods can be included in moderation, and feeling energized and satisfied are the best indications of a successful transition.
I bring my passion for nutrition to the public through nutrition talks and workshops, on-site individual consultations, executive nutrition assessments as part of executive medicals, wellness days, cooking demos, Vitality Nutrition Assessments, and DNA-based personalised diet and exercise programs, including personalised recommendations for dietary modification and the type and amount of exercise required to lose weight (utilising the DNA Diet genetic screening product).
I also incorporate functional medicine into my practice utilising a systems biology approach, treating individuals as holistic beings rather than the sum of their symptoms. I look to treat the route causes rather than merely looking at symtoms.
I was the national executive portfolio holder for private practice dietitians in the Association of Dietetics in South Africa (ADSA) 2009-2011 and the local branch chair lady for the Gauteng South ADSA Branch 2006-2010.
I have written nutrition related articles for Fair Lady, The Beeld, Sunday Times and Finesse Womens Magazine as well as appearing on television programs on SABC News, SABC 3, eTVand DSTV Series Channel. and Radio 2000.
I am an accredited Vitality Network Partner and member of the Vitality Dietitian Network.
