Meredith is a self confessed 'corporate refugee'. She spent 30 years working in the corporate world for large domestic and global organisations. Her postgraduate studies in Communication Management saw her focus her attentions on internal and external communication, media and public relations until the early 2000's when she moved into the change management space. Finding a job where she could help people adapt to, and adopt, the changes imposed in their working lives was enjoyable, however something was missing.

After marrying in 2010, she left the corporate world and took a year off working to recover from feeling burned out. Having always been interested in nutrition, health, exercise and human motivation, it seemed a logical step to move into the health and wellness field, and help others avoid the burnout resulting from their busy lives.

Embarking on studies in nutrition and health, (including Nutrition Adviser certificates from Sanoviv Medical Institute) Meredith decided to combine that with her knowledge and experience of managing change.  The result was the establishment of Enrich Your Energy. Her new program - Be Your Own Best Friend - is a coaching program designed to help people achieve their health and wellbeing goals by helping them discover what is holding them back.

Outside her professional role, she has a love of travel, and enjoys photography, crossword puzzles, exploring the natural environment and connecting with people.

Renowned integrative medicine specialists; Internist Greg Plotnikoff MD and Psychologist, Mark Weisberg PhD have teamed up to offer an effective, natural solution to break the vicious cycle of gut distress, discomfort and pain that affects over 55 million Americans. Their ground-breaking new book TRUST YOUR GUT: Get Lasting Healing from IBS and Other Chronic Digestive Problems Without Drugs (Conari Press, May 2013/ $18.95) offers a comprehensive yet accessible CORE program designed to empower readers to take back their health by listening to the messages that their chronic gut distress is trying to tell them. 

“We don’t want you to fight your gut we want you to trust it. Your symptoms are messages from the body to rely on rather than to ignore or self-medicate,” says Dr. Plotnikoff and Dr. Weisberg. According to the authors, the gut (stomach and intestinal region) is much more than just a digestive tract, it is actually an intestinal brain that responds to changes in the environment and regulates your internal organs, just like our main brain.  “When the main brain and the intestinal brain get their wiring crossed it can produce chronic intestinal problems.”

In TRUST YOUR GUT, Dr. Plotnikoff and Dr. Weisberg, empower readers to utilize a new mind-body approach to rewire the brain-gut neural connection. They teach audiences how to track down their hidden internal and external drivers of gut distress. Their practical and revolutionary CORE (Center, Observe, Restore, Ensure) self-help program provides readers with a set of tools beyond the pharmacy shelves, so anyone with chronic gut distress can break the vicious cycle of symptoms, fear, and pain to reclaim their lives—naturally.

TRUST YOUR GUT features:

  • Two Powerful New Tools for Gut Healing –Neuro-hormonal Retraining and Ecological Rebalancing.
  • A Guide to Observing the Five Causes of Stress that directly Impacts Gut Health.
  • A Food and Symptom Diary for Optimal Self-Assessment. 
  • A Chapter on Sleep so Readers can understand the connection between sleep problems and gut distress.
  • How to Create your Medical Autobiography. 
  • A Step-by-Step guide to “Retrain your Brain” and Rewire the Gut-Brain connection!
  • Hypnosis and Meditation Techniques to Support the Healing Process. 
  • A Chapter Devoted to resolving difficult emotions that directly affect gut health such as anger, shame, grief, anxiety, depression and more. 

Woven throughout the book are compelling real life stories of patients who have recovered using the CORE program to live normal, happy lives free of pain and suffering.
