Hi! My name is Julie Farrelly
I am a Functional Medicine Nurse Practitioner
Welcome to Achieve Optimal Health, where our mission is to guide women through the transformative midlife years towards lasting health and vitality. My journey into functional medicine is deeply rooted in both professional experience and personal challenges, including witnessing the effects of Alzheimer’s in my family. This experience exposed the limitations of conventional healthcare and propelled me towards a holistic, effective approach to wellness, blending my extensive background as a Nurse Practitioner with advanced studies in Nutritional and Functional Medicine.
Armed with a Master of Nursing, certifications in Applied Functional Medicine, Life Coaching, and Metabolic Balance® Coaching, I am uniquely equipped to bridge the gap between conventional healthcare and holistic well-being. My approach is centered around the belief that diagnoses do not define destiny. Through personalised care, empathy, and evidence-based strategies, I aim to debunk the myths of aging and chronic disease, guiding you towards a life of empowered health.
At the heart of my practice is the philosophy that every woman’s health journey is unique. Through The Vital Woman Code program, I offer a tailored path to revitalising your health, focusing on nutritional balance, emotional well-being, and lifestyle harmony. As we rewrite your health narrative together, I am committed to supporting you in achieving a harmonious balance between mind, body, and spirit, stepping into a life marked by vitality, confidence, and joy.
1. How does your functional medicine process work?

My functional medicine process begins with a thorough understanding of your unique health history, lifestyle, and personal goals. This initial consultation is crucial for crafting a personalised health plan that addresses not just symptoms but the root causes of your concerns. We’ll explore various factors, including nutrition, stress management, and gut health, and use advanced testing when necessary. This holistic approach ensures that the plan we develop together is tailored specifically to you, incorporating dietary adjustments, lifestyle changes, and natural supplements to guide you towards optimal health.

2. What makes your functional medicine and coaching style unique and effective?

What sets my practice apart is the integration of my extensive experience in both conventional and functional medicine, enriched by personal insights into the profound impact lifestyle changes can have on health. My coaching style is empathetic and personalised, focusing on education and support to empower you in your health journey. By combining functional medicine’s comprehensive approach with motivational coaching, I help unravel the complexity of your health challenges, enabling a transformation that is both deep and sustainable.

3. Who is an ideal candidate for your practitioner services?

The ideal candidate for my services is any woman in midlife who is navigating the challenges of perimenopause and menopause, especially those struggling with weight gain, energy fluctuations, and mood changes. Women who feel let down by the conventional healthcare system and are seeking a more personalized, holistic approach to their health will find a partner in their journey to wellness with me. If you’re ready to take control of your health and seek a deeper understanding of your body’s unique needs, you’re in the right place.

4. What kind of transformation can a client expect from your functional wellness coaching?

Clients can expect a transformative journey that not only addresses immediate health concerns but also fosters long-term wellness. The transformation often includes significant improvements in energy levels, mood stability, and weight management. Beyond these physical changes, clients gain a deeper understanding of their bodies, empowered with the knowledge and tools to maintain their health independently. This journey is about reclaiming your vitality and confidence, leading to a more vibrant, fulfilling life.

5. Why should someone unsure about functional medicine and wellness coaching decide to work with you?

If you’re unsure about functional medicine, consider my approach as an opportunity to explore health care that goes beyond symptom management. My practice is built on a foundation of listening, compassion, and personalised care. I offer not just treatments but a partnership in your health journey, providing education and support every step of the way. Deciding to work with me means choosing a path that values your unique story and seeks to address health challenges at their root, promising more sustainable and holistic results.

6. Why is functional wellness coaching so important when it comes to achieving optimal health?

Functional wellness coaching is crucial because it addresses the interconnectedness of your body’s systems, lifestyle factors, and emotional well-being. This comprehensive approach ensures that no aspect of your health is overlooked. Coaching provides the support and accountability necessary to implement and sustain the lifestyle changes that are often required to achieve optimal health. It empowers you to become an active participant in your health journey, fostering a sense of control and resilience that is essential for long-term wellness.
