Hi, I'm Elyse Comerford, a Mum, Exercise Scientist, GAPS practitioner and Health Coach. I am here because this is my deepest passion in life... to guide people in freeing themselves of the restraints of poor health. My approach focuses on healing the gut to bring about profound health changes, and the fact is, it works! I have had consistently great results with my clients so far and I am so driven to help more and more people feel vibrant and full of energy and vitality, the way we all deserve to be!
My practice focuses on assisting my clients to heal their digestive system and overcome various issues, just as I have done. As a teenager I suffered with acne, persistent thrush, cysts and abscesses in my breasts and ovaries, constant bloating, anaemia, depression, sugar addiction, constipation, diarrhoea, and food intolerances that were getting progressively worse. I had begun thinking these issues were normal, and something I would have to live with. It was a very empowering moment when I learnt the connection the gut has with all of these issues, and how I could transform my health by first transforming my gut and micro biome (our army of bacteria that we cannot survive a second without!). I was 27 and pregnant with my first child when I began researching everything I could so that he would be as healthy and happy as possible, this is when I discovered the micro biome. I knew the gut bacteria was important, but I had never realised how important! Children inherit the gut bacteria of their mother at the time of birth, and the first 20 days are the most vital time to set up their immune system for life. Science has found that an imbalance of gut bacteria is a contributing factor in obesity; that bacteria plays an important role in normal healthy brain function and the prevention of anxiety and depression; and bacteria is an essential part of our immune system, and our body will struggle to deal with viruses, infections, pathogens and toxins if it is out of balance. Armed with all this new information a passion was ignited within me to heal my health, and this soon branched out to helping everyone that I care about. I was already completing a Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science with Charles Darwin University at the time, and with any spare moment I had I was pouring myself over scientific research to do with the gut. I went on to complete a certification in Holistic Health Coaching with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, followed by my GAPS Practitioner Certification with Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride. For those of you who don't know GAPS, it is a nutritional protocol being used by tens of thousands of people around the world to heal the gut and recover from various issues. My desire to show people that they do not need to suffer is what inspired me to start my business, and I now work with clients from all around Australia and even overseas. The gut is a very interesting place, and I look forward to diving deep into it with you through my blog, Facebook, my one-on-one intensive coaching program online, or in person at my office in Stanwell Park, NSW.
As a coach, I put the power back in YOUR hands.
