My Name is Dr Amy Carmichael and it’s my smiley face that you see on these webpages.  I’m a medical doctor with a passion for holistic health and wellbeing.

But, first and foremost, I’m a woman who struggles with balancing everyday life, and keeping up with the pressures and expectations of myself, my family and friends.

I strive to be the best version of myself everyday. Some days I fail, some days I succeed, and yet everyday, I try!

Just like you I am perfectly imperfect. And alas, there is beauty in our imperfections!

From an early age I knew that my purpose was to help others, so it was hardly surprising that I jumped at the chance to study medicine at Cardiff University in Wales.  The human body fascinates me, from how we control our hands, to the intricacies of our iris; we are walking miracles!

I was born and raised in the UK, but then life and the pursuit of adventure took me all over the world, and I eventually settled in Australia.

In 2014, I reached a tipping point, realising that for the past ten years I’d neglected my body and put endless amounts of pressure on myself. A broken leg and some time to reflect pushed me onto a new path.  A path of enlightenment and revelation.

From that point on I began to practice what I’d been preaching to my patients.

“Eat well, sleep more and be gentle to yourself.”

This became not only a personal awakening, but also a spiritual calling.  As I began to improve my own health with nutritious food and taking time for myself, particularly spending time near the ocean, I reconnected with my true self.  This journey to greater happiness made me realise that others around me had let their inner lights dim too.

So, armed with new knowledge about lifestyle medicine, and research showing the benefits of a happier life, I set myself a new mission: to touch the lives of 1 million people by 2019 starting with a Book and Retreats that empower you.

To relax and unwind I love to be in the ocean, explore the world, and experiment with delicious vegan recipes.  And, of course, I always make time to practice what I preach by doing yoga, jogging or training for my next bikini modelling competition.
