Mrs Georgina Giebner
I’m a specialist cancer, rehabilitation & gastrointestinal dietitian with many years of experience in dietetics, nutritional treatment and preventative nutritional counselling. I have a special interest and strong background in providing support for people struggling with gastrointestinal side effects from cancer treatments, for example, side effects following pelvic radiotherapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy and/or surgery. As well as this I have over 20 years of experience with chronic gastroenterological conditions such as bowel surgery, IBS, inflammatory bowel disease, gallstones (and post cholesytectomy) and food allergy/intolerance. More recently I have been using my gastrointestinal experience to support people with PoTS and Ehlers-Danlos syndromes or EDS. I have completed training to assess and support those with small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), pancreatic insufficiency and bile acid diarrhoea/malabsorption. I have experience supporting lower histamine diets.
I have success supporting gastrointestinal issues such as constipation, diarrhoea, swallow problems (dysphagia), wind (and/or excess burping), heartburn, acid reflux, bloating, cramping (abdominal pain) or stoma output problems with a holistic dietary approach. Working with your medical team/Doctors if incidated.
Having experience working with clients with chronic diseases like thyroid disorders (hypothyroid, Hashimoto's), diabetes, high cholesterol, gout, liver disease, pancreatitis, heart diseases and auto immune conditions enables me to support you with multiple conditions or just one thing.
I work in all areas of nutritional rehabilitation and prehabilitation to optimise recovery and fitness. Including supporting people recover from Covid or long Covid. I am also trained to use personalised nutrition (coupled with nutrigenomics/nutrigenetics) to provide individual DNA based assessments.
I have taught and coached extensively, including planning and delivery of wellbeing programs and brief intervention support across all parts of the lifecycle (including pregnancy and menopause). I provide telehealth services nationwide and internationally.
Other areas of practice include skin and hormonal health (including PCOS, acne, rosacea, psoriasis).
I run a clinic in Edinburgh for any face to face requests.
