My story

Navigating multiple sclerosis #DoWhateverItTakes

I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2011. I had a 1 year old baby boy and an 11 year old girl. I was terrified of the uncertainty and unpredictable nature of MS. I decided early on that I would #dowhateverittakes to be as healthy as I could be to reduce the risk of disease progression.

Dietary changes became a priority while I managed my ‘new normal’ which led me to study a Bachelor of Complementary Medicine and then a Bachelor of Health Science (nutrition and dietetic medicine).

Where nutrition led me

In the early days of diagnosis I struggled with temporary paralysis, bladder problems, optic neuritis and constant fatigue. New lesions were evident on MRI and it was recommended that I go on immune modulating therapy.

I never felt I could ’wing it’ and rely on conventional medicine on its own. It needed to be a combination of both conventional medicine (infusions) plus complementary medicine (diet and lifestyle changes). They really go hand in hand.

This journey inspired me to help other people facing the same fears and to help them get some control back through nutrition, even though at times every thing else seems out of control.

Nutrition is the foundation of everything we do. Our bodies have the power to heal themselves if given the right fuel and support. My job is to help you find what works best for your body, even if that means giving up certain foods or habits in order to see results.

People skills

Listening and communication are vital in health but it also translates into understanding the client’s own values and priorities.

Problem solving

Is key when it comes to finding what works for each individual person. There are so many ways to approach a health problem, but no one solution fits all. I believe in finding what works best for each client based on their individual needs.


This is important because it helps to stay current with the latest medical research so I can provide clients with the most up-to-date information.


I am here for you! My focus is always client centred: what does the client need? How can I serve them best?


I am professional, efficient, and highly organized. I always have my clients' best interests at heart and work hard to ensure that they get the best possible outcome.

Love from clients

“I love the Metabolic Balance® program. I know what foods to eat, how much to eat and when to eat them. I have lost weight that I hadn’t been able to shift and feel amazing but most of all it has given me back my self-confidence. I am truly grateful for this program”.


“I have seen Raecheal a number of times to help me get on top of my food what is best for me to be eating while going through menopause.  Her knowledge, understanding and passion for what she does is awesome. Everything has been implemented easily and has not been overwhelming. I highly recommend Raecheal.“


“I didn’t really know what to do when I was experiencing ongoing health issues.  Raecheal really put my medical struggles in order with her knowledge and being so keen to listen and explore my way of life and culture. My problems are now manageable.“


“I saw Raecheal as I was suffering with so many allergies. Raecheal was able to recognise this as Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. I have taken her advice and gone off dairy and changed to soy products and the difference has been amazing. My sensitivities have lessened to such an amazing degree and she also changed my diet and some of the foods I was consuming. I have so much more energy. I am so grateful for her knowledge and her kindness and helping me change my life.”
