rebecca coomes, founder and author

Rebecca Coomes spent most of her life feeling sick. Born two months premature, her immune system was compromised and saw her develop food intolerances, a damaged gut and an autoimmune disease by her mid 20s.

Changing her mindset, incorporating movement into her daily life and healing her gut through improved nutrition and personalised treatment program saw her transform her life. Rebecca now wants to share her success with other women, showing them how they too can take back control of their lives.

Natalie is a naturopath with over 18 years’ clinical experience, and a qualified nurse. She specialises in digestive health for women, helping them to heal so they can reclaim their lives.

Natalie was integral in changing Rebecca’s life by healing her SIBO. She was the first person who believed Rebecca when she said she felt sick, and through her guided treatment, took her from sickness back to health. At The Healthy Gut, we like to think of Natalie as a saint.
