I’m passionate about helping people obtain optimal metabolic health and can’t wait to empower you to live your best life by providing you with contemporary evidence-based nutritional information.
While I specialise in Low Carb Healthy Fat (LCHF), Ketogenic, Animal-based and Carnivore diets, I am a firm believer in bio-individuality. One type of diet is not going to work for everyone; I will work with you and your values to devise a personalised, holistic wellness plan that best suits you.
Today we have a sickness system, not a health system.
I believe holistic medicine is the medicine of the future.
As a Metabolic Health Coach, I will help you:
get to the root-cause of your health problems
provide clarity and education on ways to optimise your metabolic health
empower you to implement long-term, sustainable lifestyle change
Why do I need a Health Coach?
..overwhelmed and confused by the amount of conflicting health advice there is online?
..tired of feeling chronically fatigued, brain fogged and depleted of energy?
..told by your GP that your blood test results are normal, despite you having numerous symptoms?
..struggling to make lifestyle changes on your own and need support & accountability to make them last long term?
..being told by your healthcare practitioners that lethargy, acid reflux, digestive/bowel issues, achy joints, loss of mental acuity, etc are just a 'normal part of ageing'?
..sick of diets that are unsustainable and restrictive and would prefer a holistic approach and personalised plan?
..living with a medical condition and need guidance with how you can support it with nutrition & lifestyle change?

Pre, Peri and Postpartum Health
Insulin resistance causes metabolic dysfunction, but once you understand the function of the mitochondria and the causes of its dysfunction; the dots can be connected and the pathway to optimal metabolic health becomes apparent.
The main dietary framework I follow is a low carbohydrate, animal protein dominant, healthy natural fat diet; which is based on ancestral traditions and modern science. Its main focus areas are:
Adequate quality protein
Foods I will help you to avoid are modern day processed foods which would have been unrecognisable to our ancestors 100 years ago.
Highly refined carbohydrates
Sugar laden foods
Inflammatory oxidised seed oils "vegetable oils"
By adopting this dietary framework, hormonal signals and satiety improve and metabolic health becomes optimal.
My goals are to:
Perform an holistic evaluation to discover the root cause of your problems.
Improve your metabolic health through a personalised approach that fits your lifestyle.
Liaise with your GP to encourage close monitoring of your metabolic markers and medications if necessary.
Teach you the skills to develop intuition about food and mindful eating
Graduate you from my service with optimal metabolic flexibility and the tools to implement longterm lifestyle change.
