About Me & My approach

Michaela Jones – Nutritional Therapist and Nutrition Coach

Like many people, I’ve discovered the importance of nutrition and stress management when I encountered health issues that medical doctors couldn’t explain or help with. Up to that point, I had lived on a typical Western diet full of high fat/high sugar processed foods, caffeine, alcohol and huge amounts of diet coke in an attempt to avoid weight gain. 

In my late forties, I developed rosacea. The next five years I was prescribed different antibiotics to try and keep this condition under control, with limited success. My health deteriorated, and ibuprofen became a staple to get me through the day. Things took a turn for the worse when I developed idiopathic urticaria (swelling) of my eyelids. Each attack became worse and took longer to subside. Working in a client facing role my stress and anxiety levels went through the roof. I saw specialists, undertook a wide range of tests, but no one could work out what was happening to me. 

It was at this point that I felt I had to help myself. Delving into the research I discovered the link between micronutrients, your microbiome and gut health, stress management and its impact upon health. This started me on a long and slow journey to change my eating and lifestyle habits. On occasions, I still struggle with skin rashes, rosacea flare ups, or aches and pains. However, I can honestly say, that I feel more energetic, healthy and happy in my body than I have in my earlier years.

I want to empower you to take control of your health and support you to live your best life yet.

My approach

Our bodies are awesome and always try to do the best for us to ensure our survival. We are all unique individuals which means what works for one person may not work for another. My approach is food first and making your nutrition and lifestyle plan personalised and realistic. This means lots of plants, farm to table, minimal processing and sustainability – adding in gut-friendly foods and regular fasts for wider health benefits. I believe it’s about progress not perfection. Small sustainable changes made consistently over time will lead to big results. I have experienced this for myself and see this time and time again in clinic.
