Louise Macartney is a Certified Health and Lifestyle Coach - a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. In addition, she has 30 years of experience in Nursing; including Midwifery, Child & Family Health and as a Lactation Consultant. She is a highly sought after public speaker and facilitates a variety of wellness seminars throughout Australia and overseas.

In 2006 Louise experienced a variety of health issues. She set out to explore potential underlying causes of her symptoms and found an overwhelming amount of research on the connection between the gut and ... every area of health! For over three decades, study after study has been published on the connection between immunity, gut function and how modern diets and lifestyles negatively contribute to overall health by damaging our digestive system.

Louise left her nursing career in 2010 to work as a Health Coach; with a special interest in gut and immune health. In 2013 she created a virtual wellness hub Live Clean Collective, now run by over 20 Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coaches. She has also co-created a 12 week online Health Coaching Program Let's Get Vibrantly Healthy.

Not satisfied with simply addressing underlying causes of dis-ease, a self confessed 'Wellness Junkie,' in 2015 Louise developed a fascination about 'Living Longer, Better!' Her research led her to the Blue Zones - 5 regions of the world where people live measureably longer lives. Since then she has visited 'The land of Immortals', Okinawa, Japan where 'women live longer than any women on the planet,' Ikaria, Greece - 'The Island Where People Forget to Die' and the largest Institute for Training and Research in Ayervedic Medicine in India.

Louise will share her her own personal journey, her longevity insights PLUS an abundance of up to date research linking digestive issues to a multitude of health conditions including allergies, asthma, autism, auto-immune disorders, depression, diabetes, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, infertility, learning difficulties....and more! These seminars are jam packed full of simple, sustainable and affordable solutions that will leave you inspired to choose a life of wellness and vitality.

I came away feeling empowered to make positive changes to create a much healthierlifestyle for me and my family. Cherie (May 2010)

I would really like to thank you for arranging to have such a knowledgeable person come and share their wealth of information with us all. This presentation has truly changed my lifeand for that I will be eternally grateful. Danielle (August 2010)

You presented your talk earlier this year at our kindergarten and it was agreed by all who attended that it was the best discussion that we have had at the kindergarten. Personally after listening to you, I changed a number of my purchasing and eating habits and am now much happier, healthier and 15 kilos lighter thanks to those amazing green smoothies for breakfast instead of my normal cereal! Steve, Kindergarten Director (December 2011)

Today my twins turn one, and I just wanted to say a big thank you to you Louise, for all of your support, advice and wisdom over the last 18 months. You have made such a big difference in our lives and for our whole family's health. What a blessing to have found you when we did. Amanda (February 2012)

I wish to thank you most sincerely for speaking today at the LGMA Women's Network. You are an inspiration to all. They call footballers legends - I don't think they know what alegendary person is. You are a legend and you rock! I have had feedback from some attendees today who have not realised that what they sell in the shops is making the human race sick. Because it is in the shops it must be good they say. Thank you so so much. I will always keep you in mind should someone need assistance with their health or to speak inrelation to health. Yvonne Dalwood, Exec Assistant to the Mayor, City of Charles Sturt (June 2012)

Louise gave a talk for my group 'The Goddess Within'.' We had around 40 women there and most of the night all I could hear was "oh" and "no!” She was incredibly clear, concise, filled with amazing information and facts that every person on this planet needs to know about. If we are ever going to change what is happening with our children's health, and ours we HAVE to start listening and who better to listen to than Louise Macartney. Diane McCann, Director, Beyond the Ordinary (July 2012)

Ms. Louise Macartney was the guest speaker at a General Meeting of the Natural Health Society (S.A) Tuesday 5th February 2013. Louise spoke to the Society on the topic: 21st Century Health Issues - Addressing the Cause, not the Symptoms. She gave a well structured, engaging and information packed presentation which brought together aspects of nutrition and toxicity, a range of interesting and disturbing statistics relating to health, theimportance of eating seasonal food, and key facts about our Gastro Intestinal Tract. The address concluded with a number of useful tips for attaining and maintaining good health, and it provoked a wide range of questions from an enthusiastic audience. It was a pleasure to have such an interesting and inspiring speaker at the Society’s meeting. Mark Heard, President Natural Health Society, S.A. Inc. (February 2013)

Louise you have done it again. Your A-Z of Child Health Seminar today was amazing. I have picked up so many more things from hearing you again today - and this time a focus on other people's issues they are having with their children. I hope to pass on what I have learned from you and for it to also be a constant reminder to me of why I am making these changes in the lives of my family. Thank you so much I wish every mother and father could hear this presentation. It is truly life altering. Joanne B (March 2013)

I would just like to say thank you for coming over to Kangaroo Island. You were very inspiring and have really motivated me to get healthy. I actually felt like i have gotten more answers from you then all the specialist i have been to in the past 6 years. I have slowly started cutting out sugar, dairy and gluten and have actually noticed a difference already with my energy levels. Annemarie (August 2014)

I was totally blown away after our "one on one" session and your presentation at the Parndana Hotel. Inspiring to say the least. You touched and elaborated on a few things that I knew a little about, then introduced a whole new world to me. Ness (August 2014)

Louise Macartney was an energetic speaker who conveyed her message well to our Bowen Therapists. We have had some great feedback on her presentation and she gave members information that they could take straight back to their clinics and use the next day withclients. Her relaxed nature and delivery of information resulted in an easy to follow demonstration of some of the pitfalls of a modern lifestyle. I would highly recommend her presentation to any group interested in health and wellbeing. Deb Hart BTFA CPE Coordinator (July 2014)

I started my health journey 3 years ago, I had suffered with so many different symptoms over the years. One day a Mum from school gave me a flier to a seminar on the connection between the gut and the brain. WOW WOW WOW! I spoke with Louise after - I think I was pale and shaky lol, because literally all my questions had been answered! To cut a long story short I changed my diet, and slowly created a ‘clean’ home. Over the next 3-6 months ALL my symptoms went away, I lost 20kg, I feel great, my kids feel great, my husband feels great. 3 years later and we haven’t looked back. Kara (May 2015)

I have had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (and there has been talk of Fibromyalgia) for over 20 years and until I heard Louise speak a couple of years ago I believed that until they found a cure I would have it for the rest of my life and all I could do is manage symptoms and be as healthy as I could be. What I didn't know until 2 years ago was that I had to power to change my own health. It was in my hands, all I had to do was to give it the right conditions. I now consider myself to be almost recovered from CFS and yesterday chose not to declare it as a disability on an employment form (as it is no longer that for me) - and truly believe that I will achieve 100% recovery. Tracy (June 2016)

Louise’s presentation at our February Bowen Therapy CPE Training Day provided a solid evidence base as to why all of us need to take personal responsibility for addressing the underlying causes of our dis-ease. Sharing her personal journey about ‘creating a better way’ to being healthy, Louise’s presentation was based on research and current thinking from contemporary science on causes of disease (including epigenetics and the gut health connection). More importantly, the presentation offered valuable insights into harm causing agents and ways we can restore or maintain our body’s natural balance when this has been challenged by factors now so common in our modern lives - inflammation, stress, poor diets, toxins, lack of sleep, nutrient deficiencies, trauma, lack of exercise. As a nutrition health coach Louise provides inspiring and motivational background information that is coupled with practical enabling strategies aimed at influencing her audience to both think differently about the causes of disease and then take responsibility for action to ‘get to a place of balance’ with their own health.' Presentation at Bowen Therapist’s Federation of Australia SA CPE Training Day, Barbara Beacham Bowen Therapist (February 2018)

I thoroughly enjoyed this talk, Louise has such a passion for health & has done so much of her own research so her talk is very evidence-based. I would highly recommend! Kay Davin, Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach, Ireland (April 2018)

Louise you are the reason I’m still breast feeding my little man today, your support and encouragement got me through a very stressful time, you then continued to help us on our health journey. You are always such a strong and positive influence. Recommended highly by my Sister in law, I am thankful I made that call that day, my life changed for the better. Emma (September 2018)

Some of the best advice given to me was by Health Coach Louise Macartney - an amazing one at that! I had a health coaching session with her all the way from Australia via Skype. I took her advice and the difference I've noticed has been astounding! I now understand that it was the process of eating a high plant based, organic, phytonutrient rich diet that gave my body what it needed to heal itself! Suzanne D'Arcy, Health Coach , Ireland (Jan 2019)

Louise Macartney is a wealth of knowledge and brings this knowledge into a compelling & engaging story on stage. With a deep understanding of human nutrition and wellbeing, Louise outlines the obstacles currently preventing many people from attaining it but also provides the comprehensive solutions we can all use to achieve great health. Kale Brock, Journalist, The Gut Summit, The Gut Movie (Feb 2019)

Thank YOU for the other night. You are an amazing presenter and you had us all riveted. Considering it was a lengthy presentation that was no easy task. Your passion shows through and you also look amazing which is obviously a reflection of your lifestyle. I am in awe of you passion and enthusiasm. Really looking forward to catching up. Bronagh (Aug 2019)

Your Gut Health seminar last week blew my mind. A lot of it I had semi heard of before but never really thought about it deeply. You gave so much valuable information, I have been raving about it ever since! Shani (Sept 2019)

I want to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for the assistance you gave me about a year ago when I first attended your ‘No More Misery Guts’ session and then had some one on one health coaching from you. The information you gave in your sessions has had a profound impact on me in the last twelve months. I was really struggling and you gave me some really practical strategies to put into practice. Also working alongside an Integrative doctor I recently managed to get off  steroids with no return of  Rheumatoid symptoms. Mel (Jan 2020)

One of the best health seminars I've ever attended. Going to rally up my mid-20's mates to come along to see one too. Gemma (Feb 2020)
