Hi there, I’m Natalie
I’m a Holistic Nutritionist and Naturopath, affectionately known as the Gut Engineer.
That’s me in the pictures to the left. First at 44, (and still at 46) not looking happy (nor was I) in my sick uncomfortable body. You’re probably wondering how does a Nutritionist and Naturopath end up with all of these problems…
- Suffering from Eczema, sleeping with ice packs on my arms every night to relieve the relentless itching;
- Dealing with Chronic Back Pain;
- Constant Hay-fever, taking an antihistamine every day;
- Hot flushes All The Time;
- Overweight (at the time I didn’t think so!)
- And… Bloating (looking 6-mths pregnant)
And now at 54 feeling amazing and (dare I say) looking much healthier than when I was 44, and…
- NO MORE…Eczema; Back pain; Hay-fever; Bloating or Hot Flushes – ALL gone!
- And a loss of 12kg (27lbs)
Did I mention I have 3 grown up children and a granddaughter and work full-time – – So, as you can imagine, I’m pretty busy.
I wasn’t always a Nutritionist and Naturopath. I started as a high school Speech and Drama Teacher and just like anyone with the demands of work, kids, life etc. I put ME on the back shelf. Until I fell of that shelf, and literally broke into pieces.
Doctors told me that it was a ‘normal’ part of aging.
I couldn’t accept that so went back to study in the field of Nutritional Medicine.
It was there I discovered that if the Gut Microbiome – our inner garden- is restored and rebalanced then the body effortlessly flourishes.
I’m living proof of its effectiveness, along with hundreds of my clients who have transformed their health – and most importantly – have sustained that transformation from what they have learnt.
How You Can Get Your Health Back… With No Deprivation
If you’re anything like me you probably tried any number of health fads… Juice cleanses, protein shakes, diet programs or whatever extreme trend is in vogue right now… Only to find you feel better for a while but soon end up feeling lack lustre again.
They didn’t work because they were a ‘quick fix’ or a ‘diet’ and let’s face it there are no ‘quick fixes’! If there were, we’d all be walking around looking like Elle Macpherson 😉
If you are serious about turning your health around – forever – then read on.
If you’re looking for ‘A Quick and Easy Way’, this is NOT for you.
Because when someone says, “What’s the easiest and quickest way”, what I’m really hearing is, “I’m not fully invested in the long term success of my own health.”
And that translates to “I’m not prepared to put in the work”.
And I’ll be frank, it takes work (especially in the early stages) to make the changes needed for long term optimal health. And then you have to regularly work at maintaining it.
You don’t have to worry as I’ll give you all the tools you need to create a lush inner garden and keep it flourishing forever.
But you have to do the work.
Book a Free Consult and we’ll have a chat and discuss…
- Your health goals… how you’d like to feel… and a clear plan to get you there.
- What’s required to turn your health around, not just for now, but years into the future
“How Do I Know If What You Do Works?”
You don’t know me.
Read below and see what just a few of my clients have said.
“I felt fatigued and bloated all the time, with no energy… headaches… I needed to lose weight, as the doctor diagnosed me as being pre-diabetic. I wanted to feel better and get back to being fit and healthy. After 4 weeks of working with Natalie, I lost 5.8kg (13lbs), have no headaches, bloating is gone, and I have so much energy. A lot of people tell me I am looking good and have lost weight. I’m a walking recommendation for your program.”
– Anthea (53)
“When I started at 79kg I had a goal to get to 72kg. Now at the 56-Day mark I weighed myself and I’m 69.5 kg!! To think I lost 9.5kg eating the most delicious food, with no calorie counting, no deprivation and I have been breastfeeding and eating heaps!! Having all the Shopping Lists made shopping a breeze, especially with 2 kids in tow. And then at night it was as simple taking out a recipe and making it (most recipes take 20-30mins). Life has become so much easier and I am feeling really good. What I really liked is the weekly podcasts that explained the ‘why’. Natalie, thank you so much. I have life-long skills that is going to keep me and my family healthy“
– Angela (35) Breastfeeding Mother of 4-mth old with a 2yr old Toddler.
“Week 1 – The meals have been delicious and very filling. I am eating things I have never tried before. I feel in great hands and find Natalie friendly, knowledgeable and down to earth.
One key factor is that I now feel in control. I was eating mindlessly because I didn’t have a goal and didn’t want to change my lifestyle. That has changed, and I am looking forward to the future and being in good health.
My blood pressure has dropped; the mucus in my throat (that I’ve had for nearly 2 yrs) was gone after week 3; coughing has stopped. I have lost almost 8 kgs and 11 cms off my waist. I have recently had blood tests which show my cholesterol has gone from 7.3 to 4.8, my inflammation levels are now normal and my liver is repairing. I am very pleased. My gut feels great and as a bonus my husband’s health has improved too”

Don’t Delay Another Day
You may have been thinking about doing something for a while. But just don’t know where to start.
Don’t be like me.
Don’t wait for a ‘health crisis’ to remind you that you need to do something. P.S. Sick care is expensive
As Charles Darwin said…“It’s not the strongest species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one’s most responsive to change”
Are you up to making the change you need to survive and thrive?
