Hi, I’m Vanessa Vanderhoek


Functional Medicine Nutritionist, Health Coach & Founder of The Healthy Gut Nutritionist​

Just over two years ago my young daughter (who was 2 years old at the time) woke up and couldn’t walk. Her knee was constantly swollen, red and hot and we spent months seeing specialists trying to work out what was wrong. At the same time she was constantly sick, with vomiting and diarrhea.

When prescribed with a chemotherapy drug to treat a diagnosis of a autoimmune disease, juvenile arthritis, in my gut I felt that there was more that we could do to help her symptoms. I didn't know what or how, but I knew I needed to do what I could to help her. 


That’s when I decided that there HAD to be a better way. 

I made it my life’s work to study the real science about food and nutrition, and the impact it has on all the systems in our body.


 I spent thousands of hours researching arthritis, gut health, inflammation, nutrition, our immune system, environment health and the impact of epigenetics.

I spent every single day exploring with my daughter ‘what's going on in there?’. 


And through this journey learnt the power of nutrition, gut health and the impact it has on our overall health, in particular our immunity. 

Which led me to some pretty incredible results….


My daughter regained health naturally.


She can now run, jump, climb, hop with the swelling in her knee and digestive complaints eradicated.

She is very happy and an incredibly healthy little girl.


And through this journey I also healed myself.

  • I banished brain fog (hallelujah!)

  • Put an end to 3pm snacking

  • Got rid of pesky bloating

  • Extinguished debilitating joint pain in my wrists and ankles

  • Eliminated crippling PMS pain

  • And I no longer suffer with annoying pimples. 


These days I enjoy glowing skin, more energy, I feel happier and healthier than ever.

I choose a healthy lifestyle that I love.

Whilst I've always eaten relatively well, until my study I never knew the true power of food.

My clients not only enjoy the food they eat, they love their healthy lifestyle because they have more energy, feel and look great.

A healthy lifestyle doesn't have to be boring...


I am a transformational nutrition coach who will support you to adopt healthy habits so you too can optimise your health and wellbeing.  


Isn’t it time that you design a lifestyle that supports your health goals?


21 Day Energy Jumpstart

Jumpstart (5).png

I’m offering this simple jumpstart to help you revolutionise the way you think about food, and reshape your body from the inside out!

I bet I know what you’re thinking… how is this different from all the other diets out there?


I have good news for you… this isn’t a DIET!

I want to show you how to throw out the fad diets that plague our society and teach you a simple system that really WORKS.

What’s the difference between a Diet and a Jumpstart?

In a diet, you find yourself trying to count every calorie you eat, which understandably causes you to become frustrated and give up. At the end of the day, you find yourself hungry and lethargic.

This program isn’t about starving your body, fasting, juicing, eating strange food combinations, or taking lots of supplements. It’s about learning how to use delicious foods as fuel for your best body.


Do you know one of the most common causes of low energy, joint pain and weight loss resistance?

The answer is hidden food sensitivities. Unlike food allergies, food sensitivities often go undiagnosed because they often don’t produce a clear and immediate reaction. 


When you eat foods your body is sensitive to, it creates inflammation in your body.

Inflammation = Low Energy, Joint Pain and Weight Gain


“If you don’t address inflammation by eliminating hidden food allergens or sensitivities and by eating an anti-inflammatory diet, you will never succeed at effective and permanent weight loss.”


– Dr. Mark Hyman


In this program you will identify
some hidden food sensitivities.


In this program we’ll explore what foods work best (and which don’t) to give you optimum energy, kickstart changes in your body, and reduce your waistline.

This jumpstart will also help remove toxins from your body. Toxins are stored in fat cells. The more toxins stored in your body, the more fat your body needs to hold on to. Once you remove the toxins, your body will be able to release excess weight.

I will take you step-by-step through a simple jumpstart that will make a huge difference in how you feel and look – in just 21 days!

The Jumpstart Starts on
Monday 1st August 2022.

Register by 30th June for

an investment of $242.90

(30% off, saving you over $100).

I replaced diet foods with more delicious, nutrient dense foods, and my cravings and mindless eating disappeared… and I have more energy!


I've bounced from one diet to another over the years and I’ve never had results that actually STICK. My skin is better, my nails are stronger, I feel great - the program is awesome.


I lost 3 kgs in 2 weeks! This jumpstart was so oragnised and easy to follow. The food was delicious and I never felt hungry. Now I have a weekly easy menu. 


I’m offering this jumpstart program for several reasons:


Even though I believe in simple and gentle jumpstarts, this can be tough to do on your own. This program is designed to give you the support you need as you go through the process.


Having gone through several programs, I often found I had questions along the way and wished I had a coach I could go to for direction.


I want you to learn from the mistakes I have made during the programs I have done in the past.  I also want to share systems I have developed to simplify the process. Why should you have to reinvent the wheel?


A jumpstart is a very effective way to create long-term changes, but most people don’t know how to effectively use a jumpstart to create lasting changes.


Life gets in the way of a healthy and nutritional lifestyle. While we might be motivated when we begin, it’s easy to fall back into old habits. I want to support you so you can make lasting changes.

“This program increased my ability to hone in on my symptoms and relate them back to my diet. thank you for putting me on the right path to healthier eating!”

“Going through this program allowed me to feel like myself again. My energy increased, my cravings decreased, and I feel better than I have in months.”

- Shoshanna D.


Will I really see results in just 21 days?

Yes! When you eat foods that aren’t right for your body, besides having excess weight, you can feel bloated, sluggish and lethargic. The 21 Day Energy Jumpstart gives you the results you are looking for because you will remove foods that cause inflammation in the body. This will alleviate issues like bloating and lethargy. And, by removing inflammatory foods, the cells in your body will stop holding onto fat and the weight will release.

What results can I expect from this 21-Day Jumpstart?

  • Determine any hidden food sensitivities that are causing you to hold onto weight (MANY people have food sensitivities and don’t know it).

  • Jumpstart your metabolism, so you can release excess weight you may be holding onto.

  • Reduce cravings and hunger for foods that sabotage weight loss.

  • Remove toxins from your body, so you can release excess weight. 

  • Learn which foods fuel your body, so you can feel energized, clear and confident. 

  • Reduce inflammation and digestive issues, which is the major cause of bloating and lethargy.

  • Reduce stress. Cleaning up your diet for 21 days will have a powerful impact on your emotional state. As stress melts away, your metabolism will be able to function optimally.

Will I be hungry on the jumpstart?


You may experience slight hunger the first two days of the jumpstart, but you can always add in a snack from the meal plans provided. They’re packed with amazing recipes that will likely become favorites of yours, even after the jumpstart.

I’ve heard questionable things about certain programs. What can I expect in this program?


While there are programs out there that require you buy lots of supplements and shakes that have you running to the bathroom, this program is NOT that. In this program you will eat real whole foods that you’re going to love.  No supplements or special equipment is necessary.

The Jumpstart Starts On Monday 1st August 2022

On Sunday 31st July at 5pm AEDST we will kick off the program with a group coaching call.


Also, each week I run a virtual 'drop in' Healthy Gut Clinic - Thursday 12.30pm AEDT to support and motivate you.

What if I’m not available for the group coaching call?


While I encourage you to participate on in the group coaching call if at all possible, I will have recordings available, so you can listen from the comfort of your own home.
