Meet The Team
Christiaan grew up in a family where healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle was their way of living. He developed an interest and passion for nutrition. He then decided to go and study dietetics at Potchefstroom University to learn more about this field. After completing his studies, he moved back to his home town Welkom where he served his community at Bongani Hospital for 3 and half years. He then moved into Private Practice in 2003. His practice has moved from strength to strength since then. He is happily married for 17 years to Marie with two beautiful sons.
Nalet van der Merwe
My name is Nalet van der Merwe (Bothma). I completed my Bsc.Dietetics at the North-West University in 2002. After, I completed my Comserve at Potchefstoom Hospital, I continued working there for another year before I joined Christiaan Greyling Dietician Practice in October 2007. Except for working at 3 private hospitals, I also enjoy the patients from the private practice that have problems with weight-loss, diabetes, insulin-resistant, cholesterol, intestine problems as well as hypertension.
On a more personal level, I am married and have two children. This encourages me to think broader on what family food entails. My passion is for people and my calling is to help them to feel better about themselves and to live a healthier life.
I should like to help you if you have made the decision to begin a new lifestyle of nutritional happiness
I studied at the North West University and completed my BSc. Dietetics degree in 2017. In 2018 I served the community by working at Bongani Regional Hospital to complete my Community Service year. In 2019 I joined Christaan’s team. I am passionate about healthy eating and leading a healthy lifestyle. My mission is to always listen to my patients with compassion, guide them with evidence based interventions and empower them to achieve their health goals.
I completed my Bachelor of Science (BSc) Honours degree in Dietetics at the University of
Stellenbosch in 2017. I did my Community Service year at Witrand Psychiatric Hospital in
Potchefstroom. I learned from a team of 4 experienced dietitians and worked with a variety of patients. I moved to Welkom in 2019 and joined the dynamic Christiaan Greyling and Associates team.
I am registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa as well as a member of the Association for Dietetics in South Africa (ADSA). Both ensure that I stay up to date with the latest research in the field of nutrition.
I am passionate about lifelong learning and providing my patients with practical information that they can implement in their daily routine to improve their health.
