Shamrista Barathan, MBChB


I have over 20 years of experience as a general practitioner and have specialised in nutritional, lifestyle and environmental medicine for the last 10 years. I completed the Fellowship with the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM) and also hold the Fellowship with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. I have helped many patients who have begun their low carb journey for many reasons, including weight loss, mood management, or sugar control. In my experience, each person is unique and one diet plan doesn't fit all. It is vital to manage each patient holistically by addressing lifestyle factors such as sleep, exercise, their relationship with food, mood, and stress management. I also explore other factors such as thyroid and gut health. I see wonderful results when we take on a holistic approach.
