Jake Biggs is a leading clinical nutritionist, keynote speaker, nutrition presenter and nutrition coach in
Bondi Junction, Sydney, Australia.
Jake's journey to becoming an accredited clinical nutritionist in Sydney is a unique one and one that has been described as inspirational and remarkable to all.
Jake developed severe anorexia nervosa at 15 years of age whereby over the course of 10 years, required 20 hospital admissions and he nearly died from bradycardia caused by starvation. At one time after not having any food for 7 days, he had a heart rate of 25 beats per minute (healthy range being 60-100 beats per minute).
His doctors feared he wouldn't wake up the next day; fortunately he did. Throughout this time in my life, he encountered first hand what happens to one's physiology (body) and psychology (mind) when one's mind and body is compromised. But specifically, what happens when the human body is deprived of high quality nutrition.
He then whilst still battling his severe anorexia nervosa, developed a Grade 3 Frontal Lobe Astrocytoma brain tumour in 2012. The brain tumour required urgent brain operating and a 12 week period of intense radiotherapy treatment. During the radiotherapy treatment, Jake experienced several side effects including extreme lethargy, muscle soreness, poor mental clarity, loss of concentration, confusion and could barely walk he was so exhausted. Despite then suffering from multiple seizures, he miraculously has fully recovered from both of his conditions.
After recovering from his severe anorexia nervosa and brain tumour, he decided to make it his life goal to learn how food can be used as medicine for the human body. He completed a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutrition & Dietitic Medicine), majoring in Sports Nutrition; graduating with DUX Honours in September, 2021. He completed his mission by becoming an accredited clinical nutritionist.
He knows from unfortunate first hand experience the magnitude that nutrition has on the human body. He knows what all types on diets have on human health. He now assists any individual to restore, rebalance and reinvigorate their health and wellbeing using evidence based medicine principles to lead a life that is full of health and happiness.
As a nutrition coach, Jake doesn't just write treatment plans; he provides ongoing nutrition education for his goal for all of his clients to become their own nutrition and health experts. He gives anyone he works with the secret key to have a long, healthy and happy life.
