Nicqui Grant, obtained her BSc in Dietetics from the University of Natal, Pietermaritzburg in 1994 and went on to complete her Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Dietetics through the same University. Nicqui began her career as a Clinical Registered Dietician at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital where she was responsible for nutrition in both the ICU and Renal Department. She then moved into Private Practice where she has been for almost 17years. Frustrated by the fact that not all patients seemed to get the results expected from the biomedical module of Nutrition training she had received, she sort out to further her knowledge in Integrative Medicine and received her Certificate for the Introduction to Integrative Medicine from The University of Stellenbosch in 2013 and has attended many Functional and Integrative medicine courses offered both locally and abroad via online platforms.
Nicqui has appeared on many TV and radio talk shows, written multiple articles for print media, and is a published author of The Ultimate Diet Solution Cookbook. She is an accomplished speaker having presented many talks to both the public and medical professionals. Nicqui’s journey into an Integrative Nutrition approach is a dynamic and continual process, of balancing the biomedical training and a deeper understanding of nutrition’s role at a molecular level. She has a passion for turning this complex information into workable and understandable nutrition.
Through her own personal health struggles, Nicqui has made it her business to seek out alternate ways in which autoimmune conditions can be managed using both her nutrition background as well as her Integrative medicine training. Although Nicqui’s interests in the field of Nutrition are wide and varied, she has a passion for, Infertility, PCOS, Insulin Resistance, Hormonal Issues (menopause/peri-menopause), Autoimmunity, Irritable Bowel and Inflammatory Bowel conditions, Cancer and Weight management. In all of these it is a Lifestyle Management approach which she finds most important for successful outcomes.
