Dr Jacqueline Michael is a talented blend of an expert lifestyle medicine doctor and coach. I have noted her work and liaised with her on exploring new strategies to prevent lifestyle-related disorders such as diabetes, cancer and dementia syndromes just to name a few. I was very impressed with her deep insight and experience in translating that into clinical practice. In addition she is especially effective in clients who have emotional stressors affecting their health as well.
One of the most challenging issues in this field is about changing the maladaptive behavior of wrong lifestyle choices.
Most ill-equipped clinicians jump into a simple 'advice' mode, of course with good intention, and often end up with frustration.
Here is the importance of Dr Jacqueline – she uses her coaching and psychotherapeutic skills to effectively motivate and support such individuals to change their behavior so that they are empowered to make their own decisions which ultimately results in vastly improved health outcomes.
I would not hesitate to recommend clients with chronic diseases to contact Dr Jacqueline for their better self-management. There is growing evidence that teleconsultations are as good as face-to-face consultations. I was assured that she could provide such teleconsultations where required.

“I recently engaged the services of Dr. Jacqueline Michael at Covenant Health after being referred to her by a member of my family, who advised me that Jacqueline suffers from the same skin condition as me and was also someone that I could trust both professionally and personally.At that time I was suffering from severe depression as a result of this condition and while I wanted to treat my condition, I also realised that my condition had not only taken its toll on me physically, but also emotionally and spirituallyy as well. Since undertaking the Partnered Restorative Programme with Jacqueline I have been able to stabilise my condition, while at the same time I have developed a closer, more personal relationship with God, and through prayer and Jacqueline's guidance I have found I have grown as a person and become more confident in who I am, rather than basing my confidence solely on my physical appearance.As a satisfied client of Covenant Health I would highly recommend the Partnered Restorative Programme to anyone who is seeking a holistic approach to healing as you will not be disappointed with the changes that you can make to your life.”
"Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help and guidance. You really saved me from a life of despair and shown me that my life has endless opportunities. I hope you will continue your great work and help those people that really need it as they are a lot of us out there."
"Working with Jacqueline is an uplifting and nourishing experience! She is very understanding and intuitive and helped me to see my situation, something I had been stuck on, in a new light. Jacqueline asked a few very poignant and insightful questions that helped me reach a point of clarity. I could tell from her questions that she was really listening to me. I also found Jacqueline very "real" - a lovely woman who has faced challenges of her own in the past and is now using the wisdom she gained to help others."
Thank you for your support Jacqueline!
When I began the Partnered Restorative Programme with Jacqueline I had so many symptoms from many different conditions. I have had several autoimmune conditions involving my adrenals, thyroid etc etc. My pain and fatigue levels were almost 7/10 or 8/10 on most days. As a result my confidence levels were quite low too. Jacqueline took a very in depth history where she really listened to me.She has helped me find a new specialist on the one hand , and on the other hand her very special sessions have been helping me tremendously. Over the course of 4-6 weeks my pain and fatigue levels dropped to about 2/10 on most days. For the first time in months I feel alive and confident. I even started driving my car after a gap of several months. I am yet to be evaluated by the specialist but have already benefited so much from her motivational coaching and the special dietary guidance tailored for me. She has also helped me work through significant emotional pain from my past. I now feel I can look forward to my future.

ഈയിടെ എന്റെ BP result (146 - 94) 15.02.2018 ആണന്നു മനസ്സിലായതിനെ തുടർന്ന് വിഷമത്തിലായ ഞാൻ ഒരു ഡോക്ടറെ കണ്ട് പെട്ടന്ന് മരുന്നിലേക്കു പോകാതെ എങ്ങനെ ഇതു നിയന്ത്രിച്ചു normal ആക്കാം എന്നു ആലോചിച്ചു. അങ്ങനെ എന്റെ ഭാര്യയുടെ സുഹൃത്തും Life Style Medicine Specialist ഉം ആയ Dr.Jacqueline Michael നെ വിളിച്ചു ഇതേപ്പറ്റി സംസാരിച്ചു. Dr. വളരെ വിശദമായി എന്റെ ജീവിതരീതികളെ കുറിച്ചു ചോദിച്ചു മനസ്സിലാക്കിയത്തിനുശേഷം എനിക്ക് കുറെ നിർദ്ദേശങ്ങൾ നല്കുകയുണ്ടായി. അന്നേ ദിവസം മുതൽ തന്നെ ഞാൻ അപ്രകാരം എന്റെ ജീവിതരീതികളിൽ മാറ്റം വരുത്തുകയും തുടർന്ന് ആദ്യത്തെ ആഴ്ചയിൽ തന്നെ നല്ല മാറ്റം അനുഭവപ്പെടുകയും ചെയ്തു. ഇപ്പോൾ എന്റെ BP level (124-84) ആണ്. എന്തായാലും ഇനിയുള്ള എന്റെ ജീവിതകാലം ഇപ്രകാരം തന്നെ മുന്നോട്ടു പോകാൻ തീരുമാനിച്ചു.
Why are we always depending on medicine as the first choice ? Simply by changing some of our life style can prevent many diseases. That's what I learn from Dr.Jacqueline. Thanks a lot Doctor.
