Hi, I’m Dr Heather Way and I am extremely passionate about health and nutrition. I have a B. App. Sc and PhD in Molecular Pathology, Nutrition Diploma, I am a Certified GAPs nutritionist, Certified Nutrigenomist, MINDD practitioner and member of the IICT. Prior to clinical practice, I worked as a Scientist with CSIRO for 20 years.
Please let me clarify that I am not a medical Doctor but a researcher with a passion for nutrition and science.
I have 2 beautiful boys who have now both recovered from Autism using our TACGA strategies. The boys have both had complicated, yet different health issues. I have had extensive first hand experience dealing with extreme food intolerances, ASD issues from non-verbal autism to Asperger’s, ADHD, anxiety, depression, eczema, fussy eaters, sensory issues, gut issues such as IBS, reflux, diarrhoea, constipation and leaky gut etc. Our family have personally lived through all of these issues and I am well aware of the complexeties surrounding them. These experiences give me a unique, hands on perspective. I am thus able to help you with realistic family friendly strategies that are proven to work with ASD.
The missing piece to the puzzle for my children came through addressing gene expression via Nutrigenomics. This offers the perfect marriage between my two great passions; Molecular genetics and Nutrition. Together they emerge as the exciting new field of “Nutrigenomics” (Nutrition and Genomics). This service allows me to do individual genetic profiling for autism and gut conditions to enable truly personalised treatment plans.
I regularly speak at conferences such as Bio-balance, A5M, Autism One and the Australian Asperger’s Association conference. I am on the scientific advisory board for Julie Matthews (Nourishing Hope), Victus Health, smartDNA and IntellxxDNA. I am the lead researcher for a number of world-leading genetics and microbiome companies working on autism.
