Melody mackeown

REGistered Nutritional therapist & founder of Food4life coach


In 2016, I experienced the anguish of a close family member with conventionally unexplained distressing digestive symptoms (daily reflux, nausea and abdominal pain). As a result, I undertook extensive research of my own, which led to a much deeper understanding of how our gut microbiomes help to achieve and maintain good health and which adverse events can impact its proper function.

With the dietary steps and nutritional interventions I helped him implement, it resulted in a complete resolution and restoration of his health.

Ever since, I have wondered how many other people suffer long-term needless pain and distress when there are effective solutions at hand that don’t involve faddy or difficult diets and medications (although these are sometimes necessary). As a result, it became a true calling for me and I have worked with hundreds of clients to help them find solutions through nutritional coaching to improve their symptoms and health challenges.

“I no longer have any nausea or vomiting. I don’t think I would have been able to go back to work without Melody’s help”

“I suffer from endometriosis, severe pain, vomiting, and nausea. Within the first month of seeing you, my energy levels improved and I no longer have any nausea or vomiting. If I hadn’t changed my diet, as suggested, I don’t think I would have been able to go back to work without Melody’s help as I was feeling sick all the time.”
