The Experts in Digestive Health
Ignite Nutrition started in Calgary, Alberta offering specialized nutrition counselling for digestive issues, women’s health, and food relationship. We help patients both young and old, and have adult and pediatric dietitians on our team. We’ve grown now to be recognized as Canada’s Leading Digestive Health Dietitian Practice, and have incredible dietitians across Canada to see patients in:
- British Columbia
- Alberta, with in-person in Calgary & a local RD in Edmonton
- Nova Scotia
- Newfoundland & Labrador
- New Brunswick
- Northwest Territories
We offer services virtually across Canada for those not located in Calgary.
*We cannot see patients in PEI or Quebec as we don’t have team members registered in those provinces.
At Ignite, we do things differently. Our Calgary registered dietitians are highly trained and recognized as leading experts in digestive health. we work very closely beside your family doctor & gastroenterologist to ensure you get the best care possible. Not only because we provide up-to-date credible information, but because of HOW we provide it. We don’t just educate, we problem solve by asking the right questions.
We are a witness to your story.
Do you feel unheard in your nutrition questions, concerns & symptoms? You’re not alone. Personalized care starts with understanding the patient. Our team prides itself on practicing ‘connective communication’ to get to the root of what is most important to you in health and wellness. We want you to feel heard.
Roadmap to Your Care
Purpose driven counselling gives us direction. By understanding what you value about your health, we can create a roadmap for your care. We’re with you every step of the way.

A Weight Neutral Approach
At Ignite, we practice in a Health at Every Size (HAES)® paradigm, with a weight neutral approach.
HAES® is an evidence-based approach that challenges assumptions about the relationship between weight and physical health and supports individuals of all sizes in addressing health directly by adopting health behaviours, rather than manipulating weight.
HAES® emphasizes inclusive respect for every body, challenges scientific & cultural assumptions, and focuses on compassionate self-care.
A weight neutral approach recognizes that while weight is often set as a health goal, health is so much more than that, and much is missing from the ‘weight loss’ conversation. Our goal is to improve client’s relationships with food, remove moral judgments around food, build awareness of hunger and fullness cues, and emphasize emotional and physical health – focusing on health behaviour change and health values – not a number on the scale.
