My Approach and Why It Works

As any farmer or gardener will tell you, the basis of successful farming is healthy soil. Soil is not dirt, it is a delicate eco-system teaming with life and nutrients, earthworms, beneficial bacteria, fungi, organic matter, etc. 

As a Nutritional Coach I focus on the soil within us: the delicately balanced eco - system of our intestinal flora that lines our digestive tract is the focus of my work. I work to nourish the gut and restore it to full health.

Because a healthy soil equals a healthy plant. Because a healthy gut equals a healthy body. This is true healing from the Inside Out. 


The Functional Medicine approach that I use takes into account the person's current health status as well as the context of lifetime health and lifestyle, while focusing on each individual's goals and wishes.

The recommendations that I make are aimed at improving overall health by optimising each body system (intestinal tract, immune system, endocrine system, etc).All my findings indicate that food can heal the body.

My focus is to work predominately with food, deciphering the contradictory information on food and eating, while keeping the use of supplements to a minimum.

My work is all about combining cutting-edge food science, experience and a good deal of common sense to tailor dietary advice specific to each client's needs and to help each client to adopt this advice long-term.

If you would like to find out more, I would love to hear from you. You can email me on or call 085 7399603. I look forward to hearing from you!
