My story

Hi, I’m Orla.

I grew up on a farm in Co. Donegal in Ireland and food was a huge part of my life; from my granny’s home-grown vegetables and delicious scone breads, to my mum’s homemade soup and apple tarts.

Later, I studied marketing and worked in a very fast paced and chaotic environment, which resulted in a pretty poor diet of processed foods and lots of carbs. It was on my last employment contract that stress became overwhelming and problematic to my health, as I was then diagnosed with IBS and cyclic vomiting.

I completely changed my lifestyle and eating habits when I completed a Masters in personalised nutrition because I now understood the effect our food choices, our environments and our relationships have on our ability to achieve health, prevent chronic illness and improve the life in our years.

As a result, in 2016 I set up Health by Orla to empower people to transform their health by knowing the right nutrients for them and/or their children.

“It’s been my experience that the foods we consume on a daily basis, the environments we inhabit and the relationships we hold, have a profound effect on our ability to achieve health, prevent chronic illness and improve the life in our years.”

My Approach

My approach to nutrition is personalised to each individual, using comprehensive biomedical testing to get to the root cause of symptoms and support each person according to their results. There’s no guesswork.
