About Us

Dr. Isabel MD has been a medical doctor since 1991, now specialising in functional medicine …

Dr. Isabel’s and Culinary Nutritional Expert Michael’s coaching is based on functional medicine and nutrition principles.


Functional medicine addresses the root cause of disease, using a systems approach, and engages both the patient and the practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. Dr. Isabel shifts from the traditional disease-centered focus of medicine to a more patient–centered approach. She works to address you as a whole person, by looking at your lifestyle, nutrition, exercise, and self‐talk.


Chef Michael offers practical, everyday, natural cooking skills as well as a deeper exploration into the therapeutic properties of the foods we eat and how we prepare them. I want to coach you to “Reclaim Your Kitchen” from the food industry. I use food as medicine, to help you live your Optimal Health, not just normal health! 


Functional Nutrition Chefs spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional nutrition supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.

It's NOT Your Fault!

CNE Michael and Brain Health in the News

Hello everyone. It's Chef Michael, Culinary nutrition expert @ doctoronamission.com.This is massively important because this is going to be around an area where we just don't tend to talk a lot about it. I mean, we seem to always want to talk about physical health and working out, which is fantastic. Physical health is very important. But there's also what's called brain health. Now today, why I want to talk about this is because it is so, so important. So here, I'm going to be quoting you from and kind of paraphrasing a little bit from an article that just came out today. Now this is stuff that we've actually known for awhile.The article is entitled the Diet that's shrinking your brain. This is about the lifestyle choices that people are making and all the world currently. Okay. So here's what it's about now, the average person, I'm just going to read some of it because I need to, the average person is eating a lot more calories than they did 50 years ago, and it's having devastating results on their brains. A new study warns people are eating an extra 650 calories day.So basically, maybe they're eating like an extra burger and fries and soft drink a day than they did in the 1970s. This is from the Australian National University professor Nicholas Cherrybomb, his new research published in frontiers and neuroendocrinology brain, said there was a clear link between brain deterioration and unhealthy lifestyle choices, brain deterioration. Um, that's not good. So this study, research and reviewed results from 200 international studies and basically what they found is there is a link between type two diabetes, overweight, obesity and rapid deterioration of brain function. Another problem is that people are eating too much of the wrong types of food, such as fast food, processed foods, that are low in nutrients really has no nutritional value, and very high in calories. Wow. Now let me just point out a few other things I am reading in here even more worrying is that the damage of brain function, brain deterioration starts a lot sooner than people think.Yep. We'll talk about that in a moment. We've found strong evidence that people's unhealthy eating habits and lack of exercise for sustained periods of time, meaning over years, put them at serious risk of developing type two diabetes and significant declines in brain functions such as Alzheimer's, dementia and brain shrinkage, and cognitive decline. The article states, people are eating away at their brain with a really bad diet, basically eating the wrong foods, too much food, and little to no exercise. It is people's diets in childhood and young adults and as adults that are crucial. Wow. Okay. So bottom line is, as is Dr Isabel and I have been talking about recently, is that we now know that the brain doesn't just automatically shrink. You know, when we're forgetting things and we have cognitive decline where we're a little bit foggy and as time goes on, let's say it's in a person's forties, 50s, 60s or later, we would always before just say, oh, it's just old age.Well, it's not just old age. This has been coming on because of the choices we're making, especially through nutrition. And so we've got to understand, folks have to understand this is so, so important that the brain is elastic. It can shrink or it can grow or it can stay the same. And how do we grow the, grow the brain by using it, by also having proper nutrition lifestyle. Exercise energy, exercise doesn't have to be pounding in weights all day long, but just movement, movement, movement is so great for the body and for the brain and nutrition. And also now that around 10% and growing around 10%, currently of the world's population is either in prediabetes or type two diabetes. That's one in 10 people you probably already know somebody or you know, um, I mean, prediabetes means people don't even know it. They're probably overweight or obese and they haven't been diagnosed as type two diabetes, but they prett

The Doctoronamission Nutrient Dense Food Pyramid

Hello and welcome. I'm Dr. Isabel medical doctor and founder of doctoronamission.com, where I help you live up to 100 years young and healthy. In today's coaching session, we'll be learning about the ultimate guide for your nutrient dense food pyramid.Now, a lot of you from Doctoronamission have sent me questions saying, hey Dr., what is the right food pyramid to be following? I totally understand your frustration. The food pyramid that I have put together is based on functional medicine. Now, as you know, I'm a functionally medically trained doctor. What we do is we seek to address and identify the root cause of your disease, of your unwellness. We look at you as a whole person. Integrated, working together, instead of an organ that's separate from you, and it gets allocated a medical specialty.This food pyramid is nutrient dense, and it's based on functional medicine. Bottom line, the foundation of your food pyramid is vegetables. Yes, vegetables, not pasta, vegetables. I recommend that it's locally grown and organic. If you can afford organics, great, if you can't, what you can do is you can fill up your greens into the basin, into your sink, put some water, fill it up with water, and 30 mils of apple cider vinegar or 30 mils of white vinegar, little bit of salt. Swish it around and let it sit there for 20 minutes. Then rinse it and dry it off and that's as close as you're going to get as getting the toxins off your greens.Now, you want to have abundant amounts of vegetables. Because you know what? Your greens are your main meal. you want to have three to four servings. Each serving is one palm. One serving, sorry, one serving is three to four palms. You can have three to four of those servings at each meal. It's not going to hurt you, because it's been beautiful, beautiful nutrition. Its got fiber, and its got beautiful carbohydrate.I want you to understand that your vegetables are actually your carbohydrates, okay? They're your carbohydrates. A lot of people don't understand that, but you do now. The next level is you want to have your meat, fish, fowl, which is your birds, or your eggs. The amount of that is your palm without the fingers, and that's one serving.The reason you want to have the meat, the fish, the fowl and the eggs is because it's got two beautiful things. One is it's got saturated fats. Saturated fat actually give you energy. I don't want you to be afraid of saturated fats. Saturated fats are good for you. They also decrease your hunger by telling your hormones in your stomach to talk to your brain to say, "You know what, I'm full. I don't need to keep on eating." The saturated fats actually help repair your hormones.Then the protein in the meat, the fish, the fowl and the eggs is important to build muscle. Because you got to have muscle, because muscle helps burn fat. You know what? The more toned muscle you have on your body, the more physiologically younger you are. You can actually be 15 years younger than your current age in your physiology, if you have enough strong muscle, and you've got low body fat. Isn't that amazing?Let's say you were 40. You could actually have the body, the inside body of a 25 year old. How does that feel? Or you can be 60 and have the physiological body of a 45 year old. Sounds good to me. Those are my goals.Now, make sure that your meat, fish, fowl and eggs are local, grass fed and organic if you can afford it. The next level is your healthy fats. Because fats are good for you, but we've got to be eating the right fats. Now, the fats that I'm recommending are the fats that are not your vegetable oils, like your corn and your canola or your sunflower, safflower or soybean oil. Those are vegetable oils, no good. Or your trans fats. Now, those are anything that's hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated, get kicked out because they cause oxidative stress and they age you.These are the fats that are good for you. Things like butter, grass fed. Coconut oil or ghee, Olive
