Dr. Jacqueline Michael is a Lifestyle Medicine physician, Life Coach and Health Mentor. She is also a travel buff, writer, and authentic living proponent, with a passionate interest in genuine wellness and healing.
Several years ago, whilst a busy young doctor in the NHS, she was diagnosed with depression. Over the course of months and then years several other diagnoses were added to the list. There were hardly any effective treatments for her autoimmune conditions and pain.
M.B.B.S, NFP MC, P.G.Dip(Human Rights), M.Med (Infection & Immunity),
Diplomate of the International Board of Lifestyle Medicine, Certified Nutrition Therapist, Life Coach & Obesity Expert.
So when faced with the prospect of a progressive visually disfiguring illness plus debilitating fatigue & pain from fibromyalgia this young doctor decided to personally seek out answers. As 'truth seeker' she set out on a journey to find her own healing. An avid reader, she took to scouring medical literature from across the globe. She delved into alternative therapies and used evidence based medicine to seperate the wheat from the chaff. She journeyed spiritually as well as mentally and physically.
Her life's journey has taken her across continents and helped her uncover many little known nuggets of information that can help transform anyones life.Her own healing was woven into her life through a changed lifestyle, diet, love, grace and a little known yet effective medicine called Low Dose Naltrexone.
She went back to school in pursuit of a greater understanding of autoimmune diseases and diseases which have an immunological basis. She completed her Masters in Infection and Immunity from Sydney University's prestigious School of Medicine with Distinction in all 8 subjects.
Some of her qualifications include a post-graduate qualification from Crieghton University and Pope Paul VI Institute, Nebraska, USA as an NFP Medical Consultant (Creighton Model), NCFE qualification in Counselling skills, Level 2 awards in Public Health Improvement and Food hygiene, training in Nutritional Therapy, and a Masters in Medicine from the University of Sydney.
In 2014 she began work as Life Coach and Health & Wellbeing Mentor, coaching clients from around the world to lead more happier, healthier and authentic lives and later authored the book, Discover the 3 P's for a Powerful Life.
Drawing on her almost 2 decade long experience in the medical realm, her personal healing journey, medical research and the lived example of an empowered life, she created the highly successful Partnered Restorative Programme™. Her wisdom, compassion and knowledge is empowering clients from different parts of the world achieve greater health and wellbeing plus freedom from anxiety, depression and low self esteem. The 12 week programme is a totally transformative life experience. Religion plays no part in the services offered. The personal faith, beliefs, habits, cuisine and culture of each client forms the bedrock upon which each individual program is built.
A few years ago it became clear that South Asians in general and South Indians in particular were developing diabetes and heart diseases far in excess of their western counterparts. Research showed that a cultural shift in lifestyle alone could help stem the rising trend of these diseases.
Dr. Jacqueline Michael conceived the Rainbow Project as a vehicle for this change - to educate, treat and heal with Lifestyle as Medicine in India.
She moved to India in 2017 and set up HEAL Clinic, a purely Lifestyle Medicine clinic in Kerala. She also runs lifestyle education programs in high schools called HEAL for Teens, CME's for physicians, and health education programs for adults.
She compiled Seven Rainbow Rules for Health and Longevity and these are used widely as the framework in the health and lifestyle education programs.
As member of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine and as Education Committee member of the Asian Society of Lifestyle Medicine, she hopes to promote the benefits of Lifestyle as Medicine in Asia and beyond.
She has been nominated as Assistant Secretary to the Indian Society of Lifestyle Medicine's Executive Committee and played a key role in the first Lifestyle Medicine conference held in Bangalore, India in December 2018.
Recognising that media is key in transmitting knowledge and transforming healthcare she gives frequent appearances in the media to talk about the benefits of therapeutic lifestyle change and the 7 Rainbow Rules. She also presents the Life Style program on Shalom Television.
Currently she lives in Sydney and through Health Education And Lifestyle Solutions she continues her coaching and mentoring work as well as offers her services as a speaker and trainer in authentic health and wellbeing.

Walk With Me
When I look into your eyes
I'm looking for your soul
If I meet your soul within
It will a hello say.
If your soul is so well hidden
I know a pain you bear
A pain too hard to show
A pain you barely know.
Even if you don't
Ever know your soul
Or the depth of feeling
You never care to share
I know its deep down somewhere
Waiting for love and kindness
An accepting gaze to share.
Walk a mile with me
The Lord will guide along
Open you heart and soul
And healing won't be long.
This my friend is my purpose
To help you to be you
Wholesome and awesome
Every bit through and through.
