Hi, I’m Vanessa Vanderhoek


Functional Medicine Nutritionist 

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...


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. 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! 

Weight loss doesn’t have to be painful.

There are 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.


The 21 Day Spring Cleanse

Spring Complete Mockup.jpg

I’m offering this simple cleanse 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 Cleanse?

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.


What are 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 cleanse 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 cleanse 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 wholefoods cleanse that will make a huge difference in how you feel and look – in just 21 days!

The Cleanse Starts on

Monday 3rd October 2022.


Register by Sunday 26th September

for the special price of $197.

Note that this special price does not include a 1:1 Functional Nutrition Consultation with Vanessa.

“With working, managing a business and running a household, I knew all the things I should be doing but just wasn't doing it!


I loved the preparation questions, the meal plans and LOVED the meals! So delicious and filling! Over the program I noticed increased energy, clearer skin and much more even moods.


Vanessa has such a beautiful way of encouraging the group while honoring where people are at. Her knowledge is boundless and her passion to help others makes this program stand out from any others. If you're thinking about it, definitely dive in!”



I’m offering this cleanse program for several reasons


Even though I believe in simple and gentle cleanses, cleansing 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 cleanses, 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 cleanses 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 cleanse 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.


“For me this program has been really transformative. It has been exactly as Vanessa describes, a jumpstart into health and wellbeing!


This program and the amazing Vanessa, have provided me with the tools and knowledge to apply and maintain healthy food choices and lifestyle practices in my daily routine. I have experienced a dramatic improvement in my digestion– which has helped my post partum healing. Not only this I feel so energised and happy, my skin is clearer and brighter and I have lost some weight (bonus)!


I am now nourishing my body so it can produce the best possible nourishment for my little one – giving her the best jumpstart at life too! What more could I ask for?”- Kim

The Cleanse Starts on Monday 3rd October 2022

“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 - and I've lost 3kgs in 3 weeks while eating more than ever from the delicious menu.”



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 Spring Cleanse 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 Cleanse?

  • 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 cleanse?


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

I’ve heard questionable things about certain cleanses. 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 Cleanse Starts On Monday 3rd October 2022.

Call dates & times for the Cleanse are:


Thursday 29th September - 7pm - this is the "kick off" call to help set you up for success!
