You’ve landed here for a reason.

  • You’ve landed here because you’re feeling tired, or your weight isn’t shifting no matter what you try, or maybe your hormones are off and you just don’t know what to do.

  • Since you hit your 40’s & 50’s the things you normally do when you put on a few extra kilos just aren’t working anymore.

  • Perhaps you’ve recently been diagnosed with a chronic condition such as high blood pressure, autoimmune disease, hypothyroidism or diabetes, etc. Or you’re experiencing menopausal symptoms, endometriosis or mood swings.

  • You may have been feeling not great for a while now and perhaps you’ve tried a few different things to try and feel and look like your old self again, and yet here you are.

I’m here to help and I know exactly what to do.

Thank you Susie so much for being my Coach throughout my program. You have been so helpful and knowledgeable – very lovely and supportive to share my journey with. This program helped me lose 10kgs. I have more energy, less inflammation, leaner legs, a shrinking butt, and dropped a decent dress size. I have really enjoyed my new food choices; the program is simple and easy to navigate. While I have been very challenged by a lot of stress and had the odd blow out or two, I have still been able to keep the weight off. It has been life changing to say the least. Many thanks again Susie; I have loved working with you xx

What if I was able to tell you the EXACT foods that are ideal for YOU to really thrive and be well, based on your individual body chemistry?

What if I was able to generate a structured and uniquely personalised Protocol for you so that you don’t even have to think about what’s working for you or against you in your food and lifestyle choices?

What if you were able to say goodbye to overwhelm and confusion and be confident in making lifestyle choices that make your skin glow, maximise your energy, balance your hormones and make you feel vibrant and confident?

Welcome to The Glow Protocol®

While the passing of time is inevitable, it’s possible to feel young and vibrant again with my expert advice and support.

But how??

Here’s the story behind The Glow Protocol®…

A number of years ago, I had a busy practice full of women over 40yo wanting help balancing their hormones, losing weight, managing stress and increasing their energy.

I had invested in some additional training in a European nutrition program (Metabolic Balance®) and added in mindset skills, movement and gut health support and was seeing my clients achieve incredible weight loss results.

BUT they were also raving about –

  • How well they were sleeping

  • How their skin was glowing

  • How their thoughts were clearer and they were making better decisions at work

  • How their menopausal symptoms were reducing
  • How their energy was going through the roof!

I did some more research and realised that these women were receiving these incredible benefits because of the combination effect of my total program AND that there was plenty of science to explain this.

The science is complex, and I’ve outlined some of it in my blog for you to read if you wish.

So I used all of the skills and knowledge that I’ve acquired over a 30+ year career in healthcare, added in some additional components in line with the science and The Glow Protocol® was born!

The Glow Protocol® is based on 6 Pillars

The program is delivered using 1:1 consultations (via Telehealth), optional weekly 1:1 coaching calls, blood testing and video lessons with workbooks and action plans to support you.

Susie is amazing! I can’t recommend her enough she’s helped me so much with my hormonal acne/pcos journey. She’s super supportive and always makes me feel comfortable. She also takes the time out to explain why things are happening which I really appreciate. She’s the best 🙂

Susie has been my coach as part of The Glow Protocol and I am so happy! I was feeling old, tired, stressed & no matter what I did, I could not lose the weight around my tummy area. I knew I had to make changes but there was so much conflicting advice. The decision to start the Glow Protocol has changed my life, the way I look at food and the way I shop & cook. I can honestly recommend Susie with all my heart.

Susie was incredibly kind and professional, she has a genuine interest in seeing your health improve and offers hope and suggestions whenever you face obstacles on your health journey. Having tried every diet possible with very little success, the Metabolic Plan works and there is no crazy amount of exercise, I am doing less than ever and have still achieved the goal of loosing weight (and improving my health) Thankyou.

Susie Garden is the best! I’ve been lucky enough to be on Metabolic Balance (The Glow Protocol®) for the past few months and I’ve had amazing results. It’s by far the easiest diet I have ever done. Real food and the support I had throughout from Susie has made all the difference and I have finally found something that I sustain long term. I’ve not felt this good in years and this is all down to Susie and the program. So very grateful for all the support and laughs along the way. If you’re thinking of seeing a naturopath then do not hesitate to see Susie, she’s worth every penny!

Imagine this:

  • You fit into your favourite jeans again.

  • Your friends are noticing your healthy glow and asking what your secret is.

  • You wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and looking forward to the day ahead.

  • Your perimenopause symptoms are controlled, rather than controlling you!
  • You have the energy to keep up with your lifestyle.

  • You feel happy and confident in your body and mind.

  • You’re feeling clear in the mind and making better decisions.

Susie’s expertise and advice in my Metabolic Balance plan was brilliant. She worked with me every step of the way, and the results just happened! It’s been the best choice for me and my life. I feel fantastic and can’t thank Susie enough for her outstanding service.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I do a 3 or 6 month Protocol?

I’ve designed the 3 and 6 month options so that you receive the ideal amount of support for your goals. eg If you have a chronic condition that has lead to significant weight gain, and weight loss is one of your goals, you may wish to consider the 6 month option so that you have my professional support and coaching to reach your goal in a reasonable time frame. I’m all about sustainability and not ‘quick fixes’.

Is this program only for people who want to lose weight?

Let’s face it, weight gain is a common problem when women hit their 40s and while I’m often tailoring The Glow Protocol® for weight loss, this program can assist with so much more! This is a truly individualised program, so if your main concern is gut health, I can tailor the program for that.

I'm really busy. Does this program suit busy, working Mums/executives?

I totally hear you on this one. To make life easier for yourself, I recommend taking a little time each week to do some food prep. The feedback I get from my clients is that it’s so much easier than they think it will be and that in fact they feel so much more energetic that it’s worth the prep time.

I'm only in my 30's, can I still do this program?

Absolutely! I have women of all ages doing their own unique Glow Protocol® and the earlier you start improving your health, the better the outcome. And who doesn’t want more energy, better stress resilience and their skin to glow?

Is this about calorie counting?

Absolutely not! Calorie counting is soooo last century! Your Metabolic Balance Nutrition Plan (included in your Glow Protocol®) has your ideal portions already worked out and there’s no calorie counting.

Why can't I just sign up? Why do I have to have a Pre-Screening call?

The Glow Protocol® is a highly customised program that is generated specifically for each client who enters the program. This is not a ‘one size fits all approach’ like most other programs out there, so I need to have a chat with you to make sure this will work for you. There’s no enrolment on the call and I send you an email after the call with the enrolment link only if you’re a suitable candidate.
