Hi, I’m Emma,
I am a passionate Functional Medicine Nutritionist that believes wholeheartedly in the power of Food as Medicine.
My journey began in high school when when my science teacher stood up in front of the class and simply said, “as living beings we are completely made of nutrients”. Proteins, vitamins, minerals, fats and carbohydrates make everything from our cells & tissues to our skin & hair (and everything in between!). So I made the connection – if we didn’t eat right, we didn’t function right. I began to have a strong interest in all things nutrition and chose to eat well and keep on top of my health. Or so I thought…
Up until I was 35 I had relished in the good life; living, loving, eating, drinking, exercising, travelling and bringing up my children but in 2007, after putting up with a ‘sensitive stomach’ (which I thought was normal for me) for as long as I could remember, I decided I had to investigate this more deeply. I needed to know what was actually going on inside me! I felt a shift in both my body and mindset, and it was clear to me I needed to make some changes, and channel my enthusiasm for nutrition and health.
After 5 years juggling family, work & study I graduated university with a Bachelor of Health Science in Nutritional Medicine and went straight into practice.
Since then I’ve continued my education by doing post-grad on-line courses & attending seminars and conferences all over the country – chasing my passion for learning. My specialities have grown organically, being drawn into the Gut Health, Microbiome, Pregnancy & Breastfeeding fields through my role with Qiara and the dire need for getting better outcomes for mums & bubs, and also more widely > finding the root cause of chronic gut issues in our community.
If you have any of this going on I can help;
- IBS, Food Intolerances, Allergies, IBD, other Autoimmune conditions (these start in the gut!)
- Preconception, Fertility, Pregnancy, Preparation for Birth & Breastfeeding
Weight loss is a complex field that has ‘found me’. Everyone knows what they ‘should do’ to ‘lose weight’ (eat healthy and exercise more right!?) but it’s most definitely not that simple. Over the years of clinical experience with many weight loss clients I’ve learned the approach has to be extremely holistic (it’s NEVER just calories in vs calories out!) & individualised to get results. With the addition of personal & transformational coaching we can identify and target the underlying dysfunctional beliefs that are keeping you ‘stuck’ in unhealthy & self-sabotaging behaviours.
If you’ve always struggled with your weight, been a yo-yo dieter or just really want to optimise your body composition, health, wellness, vitality & JOY – the Heal Yourself & Transform your life 3 month Program is for you
This is the way we get lasting, sustainable LIFE CHANGING results…
I absolutely love what I do. Helping people achieve health, wellness and vitality through food choices, cutting edge nutritional & lifestyle medicine & transformational coaching.
I’ve learnt through a combination of education, self-practice and life experience, and now it’s time to share. Let me help you be the absolutely best possible version of yourself!
