Our Team At Redfern, Sydney's Inner West

Irene Downs


Irene is an accredited clinical nutritionist with a profound understanding of the importance a healthy diet can make on one’s life. Before she began her journey into nutrition she felt that she had a good grasp on healthy diets; what worked and what did not.  It was only after having 3 children and experiencing a serious illness that Irene realised there was so much more to learn.

During her year-long recovery from Guillain-Barré Syndrome, she researched and read anything and everything there was about nutrition.  Eventually this deep-seated need to know more prompted a return to school where Irene received an Advanced Diploma in Nutritional Medicine and began providing clients with the tools needed need to take control of their health.

Irene is happy to help clients with any health concern or guidance in making the healthiest food choices.

Some areas of special interest include:

  • Autoimmune disease
  • Digestive issues
  • Detoxification
  • Reworking your favourite recipes into healthier versions

You can find Irene at Health Space Redfern on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
