Midlife is a time to SHINE!

Our midlife is a pivotal and the start of a journey of new discoveries about who we are and how we want to live. For a woman, it's absolutely the time to embrace our wisdom, share our gifts with confidence and to step forward courageously to make the rest of life, the best of life.

To help midlife women do just that, I've researched, curated and presented information from a wide variety of trusted sources and top experts in functional and integrative medicine and holistic healthcare practitioners and offer it here at Izabella Natrins Food Health Lifestyle because you're worth it.

But if we're honest, how often does it feel like this...

♥ I want to feel better, but I'm simply overwhelmed. My body keeps whispering "slow down girl", but I keep on going and going... 

♥ I want to nip my niggling health issues in the bud - I'm sleeping badly, have no energy and am tired all the time.  I have unexplained aches and pains and a permanently fuzzy head and difficulty in concentrating. I feel my body's urging me to: "please, listen"...

I've been struggling for too long with multiple health issues - an intestinal or digestive disorder, an autoimmune condition, miserable hormonal dysfunction, infertility, a thyroid problem. I'm pre or T2diabetic with distressing weight-gain or obesity. My body's crying out: "Help. Me. Now."

You’re one of many women who just want to feel well and live more!

As women, we're hard-wired and deeply invested in wanting to save the world - to 'fix it' for everyone from our partner and family, to our planet... and, when there's time and energy, to show up for ourselves. But we're trying to do so much at once that the effect on our well-being - mind, body and spirit - is not only overwhelming, it's just not sustainable.

We want to show up to be the best we can be... to shine... but our energy, motivation and our health just isn't co-operating!

Do you feel it?  

Do you feel it? The sense there's an answer out there, but no-one's putting their finger on it. You've googled your eyeballs sore, searching for symptoms, patterns and solutions. You're frustrated for lack of knowledge, worried and confused about what to do, think and eat next. You are not alone.

Meet a mentor, coach and ally...

Fuelled by a passion for wanting women to embrace a healthy, happy midlife with energy and optimism, I've garnered my 30 years' experience in the health space and a 10-year journey into food-and-lifestyle-as-medicine in service of a mission...

To inform, inspire and support you to hear your body's whispers before it starts to scream; to help you to put the traditional foods that kept past generations healthy, back onto your table; and to make sustainable lifestyle choices for much better health.

And, the success of my personal journey in freeing myself from a debilitating autoimmune disease and the prospect of a lifetime of strong medication, is living proof that our health is powerfully in our hands.

♥  A mentor, helping you to understand why food-is-medicine and why education comes before medication; teaching you how to put the nutrient-dense traditional foods that kept generations of our grandparents fit, lean and free from chronic diseases, back onto your table.

♥ A coach, helping you to get clear on your health goals and priorities; supporting you with information, inspiration and the motivation to take small, actionable steps for the wins - the diet and lifestyle changes that get you into the driving seat and put the pedal to the metal for more energy, vitality, control and much better health.

♥ An ally, on your side, encouraging you to gain the confidence to manage your own health. An ally in allowing you to shine and make rest of your life, the BEST of your life.

If this resonates with you, health coaching can make the difference between wishing life was better and creating a much better life.

 Is health coaching right for you?

You’ll find a friendly, listening and caring ear

Why 'femergy'?  

femergyWomen hold the family and indeed, the whole world in the palm of our hand. Our archetypal roles of 'Queen', 'Mother', 'Wise Woman' and 'Lover' call on us to be deeply intuitive and intensely concerned with our young, our mate and our ‘pack’ - and by extension, our planet. But it’s a heavy load: Overwhelm, fatigue and the feeling we need to do more, be more and care more depletes us daily.

As we transition to midlife, in caring for others, our own health and happiness are suffering – and so is our ability to hold everything together. Many of us, beleaguered from puberty by less than optimum health, are left feeling that our health and our vitality is slowly ebbing away.  Well it's time to reclaim it.

Our food and lifestyle is our first medicine. By making delicious (no-fad) food and powerfully simple lifestyle changes we really CAN restore our femergy, make midlife our time and make the rest of our lives the BEST of our lives!

why women matter


My new book is available in January 2019.

Our food is our best medicine, but the food we're eating today is making and keeping us sick. Learn why traditional, nutrient-dense foods kept generations of our grandparents healthy, happy and free from the modern diseases that plague us today and how you can put them back on your table!

Let's make the rest of your life the BEST of your life.
