Are you struggling with diabetes, heart disease or cognitive decline? Or do you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol or difficulty managing your weight? Have you been told you will need to take medication to control these chronic conditions for the rest of your life?

Imagine being able to regain control over these chronic conditions or better still, reverse them and a live a life with less dependence on medication. It is possible!

But what needs to change for you to get there? And where do you begin?


Meet Lydia

Helping you recover your health by making the right changes to your lifestyle.

I want you to feel confident enough to take control of your own health so that you get to do all those things in your life that are important to you. 

We are inundated with health information which can often be conflicting and confusing. And knowing what you should do doesn’t necessarily mean you know how, especially when struggling with deeply engrained habits.

I can help you:


Understand the root cause of your chronic condition and the latest scientific evidence that supports lifestyle change as a way to better manage and often reverse chronic diseases


Create a personalised lifestyle prescription based on your unique life situation, personal needs, challenges and preferences


Guide and support you step-by-step to make sustainable changes that will become ingrained as part of your life

What People Are Saying

I have just achieved a big milestone. I have reversed my insulin resistance! I am overjoyed with the progress I’ve made. I have also recovered my health and energy after suffering burnout and histamine intolerance. I can’t imagine this journey without Lydia’s support and guidance. Health is only appreciated when you lose it – so grateful Lydia walked this path with me to better my health, she was instrumental in me getting my life back.  We turned what looked like the titanic into the right direction – couldn’t have done it without her. Lydia, thank you so much for being an amazing human being and Dr!

Dr Lydia has helped me to understand in an uncomplicated way how my body and its systems work as well as helped me to get know myself better. She supported me with compassion to achieve better health as I changed my eating habits to minimize metabolic disease. I will be forever grateful for meeting her and for the special way she attends to her patients.

Christna Steyn

I saw Dr Lydia when, due to a trauma, I was suffering from tremendous stress. I had stopped eating and sleeping. With her knowledge and guidance, I started to function normally again. She taught me how to live in the present, in the here and now. She gave me so many “pearls” that I will use for the rest of my life. She was always ready to help and support in any way she could.  I will always be grateful to you Lydia for the love and care you gave me.
