Hi, I’m Vanessa Vanderhoek


Functional Medicine Nutritionist 

Founder of The Healthy Gut Nutritionist

Almost three 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 handed 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 we 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 our family 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.


My husband lost 14kg (and has kept it off!) - weight which was previously very stubborn and hard to loose. 

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. And my husband is thrilled that he's lost 11kg and has kept it off.

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 love my programs. Not only enjoy the food they eat, they love their healthy lifestyle because they have more energy, feel and look great - and keep the weight off! 

Healthy upgrades don’t have to be painful.

On this program I'll share with you effective and healthy ways to lose weight and keep it off.  Once you learn to fire up your metabolism, it will work optimally to burn fat, while decreasing your cravings.

Introducing the…

21 Day Autumn Detox


I’m offering this simple detoxto 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 Detox?

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 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 = 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 detox you will identify
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 detox 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 detox that will make a huge difference in how you feel and look – in just 21 days!

The Detox Starts on Monday 6th March 2023.


Your Investment: $197 AUD

I replaced diet foods with more delicious, nutrient dense foods, and my cravings and mindless eating disappeared… and I lost 6kg in 12 weeks!


Following this program I lost 4kg while eating MORE! I've bounced from one diet to another over the years and I’ve never had results like this that STICK.


I lost 3 kg in 2 weeks! This detox was so different that the deprivation-based plans I’ve been on in the past. Not only was the food delicious, but I never felt hungry.


I’m offering this detox program for several reasons:


Even though I believe in simple and gentle detoxes, detoxification 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 detoxes, 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 detoxes 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?


Cleansing is a very effective way to create long-term changes, but most people don’t know how to effectively use a detox 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.”

- Alana


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 Autumn Detox 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.

I am not sure it's for me. Can we talk before I sign up?


Yes absolutely - click here to book in a time that suits you. I will explain more about the program and answer any questions you have.

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

  • 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 energised, 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 detox?


You may experience slight hunger the first two days of the detox, 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 detox.

I’ve heard questionable things about certain detoxes. 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.
