My Body’s Keeper…individualised and specialised nurturing for your “health” and “personal development”.

My Body’s Keeper is an initiative of Jo Herbig who has studied and graduated with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, New York as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach.   
Jo’s work in the area of family therapy includes mediation and child consultation, as well as individuals and couples.

¨Thinking that I was a healthy eater, who kept in good shape, I was blown away by the impact of life events, as well as what we put in and on our body, especially how it can impact on health and well being”.

 “A major life changing event in 2015 was the catalyst for a decision to study Integrative Nutrition and learn to be the best keeper of my body, along with helping others to do the same”.

Jo recognises that everyone´s health needs are different and aims to assist clients with their individual needs.

With the assistance of traditional and modern nutrition theories, Jo works with people to assist in any area of their life, from food intake, what to buy and where, food that is best suited to your body and blood type, physical activity, social life, family, spirituality, as well as career, inclusive of work and life balance.

With many years life experience, Jo has a wealth of knowledge and cares about imparting the most appropriate assistance for each individual.

Jo says, ¨knowing the medical model is often designed to fit all, it is crucial that individuals become a proactive expert for their own health¨.


“I guide people in how to enhance their individual wellness, so they can reach their maximum health potential, without burnout”

¨Being equipped and qualified in dual areas of health and family therapy means I can offer my clients the most appropriate balance of unique and personalised assistance, as well as the most appropriate information and referral for any area of their life¨.



In this growing field of Health Coaching, there are many “Health Coaches” operating who profess to be able to assist with personal aspects of life, such as stress, trauma, grief and loss, to name a few.

Not all Coaches are equipped adequately, or qualified in these areas to be able to help people in a safe and effective way.

“THE SAME approach DOES NOT suit all, because YOU ARE UNIQUE!”
