Why work with Maria Lucey?

Maria’s favourite subject is nutrition and when you speak with her, you can see her passion and expertise around this topic shine. Always obsessed with food, Maria found that she was just in love with the wrong foods. This lead her to her old illnesses of chronic tiredness and depression. From her personal experience, she is now able to help people revive their diet.

Maria thoroughly enjoys the education process of teaching people what she has learned over the years, including all the things she has put into practice with herself and her family. She has never met anyone who applied even simple diet recommendations to not notice a difference in their health. 

Due to her experience with her son Drew being born at 25 weeks and having all his large intestine removed and an ileostomy bag, Maria now understands and believes Gut Health to be the key to lasting Health. For more information, you can visit her Good Guts website, for more about Drew's story and gut health.

In summary, the only way to achieve gut health is through your DIET. You need to really understand what foods the body heals on and what foods it doesn’t, there is a lot of confusion out there, Maria is here to clear up this confusion and help you feel better every single day. 


In addition to all of the above, Maria specialises in the following:


  • Pre-Pregnancy Detox Programs

  • Healthy Pregnancy

  • Children’s and Family Health

  • Holistic Beauty Programs

  • Detox and Weight Loss Programs

  • Hormonal Health (for women and men)
