Bec Wilkins Nutrition
Is this you?
Are you suffering with chronic health issues and not sure what to do in terms of your nutrition?
Do you feel the right nutrition plan for you may be the answer?
Maybe you are confused about what to eat based on the conflicting advice in the media or Dr google?
Or are you simply interested in doing all you can towards prevention of chronic health issues.
I am Bec Wilkins a nutritional therapist that specialises in cancer support and chronic illness, and I can help support you with a personalised nutrition and lifestyle plan that aims to promote health and well-being. You are unique, and so should your road towards supporting better health.
Evidence is building that demonstrates an evidenced-informed, safe, and personalised approach to nutrition and lifestyle may provide support alongside conventional medical treatment.
Nutritional Therapy may help by:
- Supporting you holistically
- Supporting emotional and overall well-being
- Improving quality of life
- Providing prevention strategies
- Allowing you to take some sense of control back over your diet
- Assurance there are no interactions between supplements, herbal remedies, and pharmaceutical medication to prevent complications
- Utilising functional and genetic testing to assess your specific risk factors and provide guidance for a truly personalised approach
I take time with you to do a deep dive into your case history, your symptoms, the specifics of your circumstances and needs, and look to address imbalances that may support you.
I do this by employing a whole person, functional medicine, systems-based approach to your health that aims to promote health and well-being by looking at how the body is interconnected, including the mind-body connection.
I work in a safe, evidenced-informed, and integrative way with your medical team. I refer on to medical professionals when required.
I don’t offer a one-size-fits-all advice or protocols, you are unique, and my recommendations reflect that by being tailored to you, your cancer type and stage, and your particular circumstances and goals.

A bit about me
My passion for helping others stems from a lifetime of my own chronic complex health issues including my own experience with cancer, so I empathise. I believe in supporting well-being by working in a holistic way.
My particular interests include cancer, chronic health issues, the lymphatic system and lymphedema, nutrigenetics, environmental exposure and illness, and detoxification in our increasingly toxic world.
