Dr. Ness here,
Welcome to my site of no nonsense healthy living. I’m an Aussie mum of two kiddies, food lover and biomedical research doctor.
For 11 years, I investigated cancer and epigenetics, looking at how inflammation and environmental factors influence the activity of our genes and the genetic legacy we pass onto our children.
I started my studies at the University of Sydney and continued my research at the University of Zurich, where I graduated summa cum laude with a PhD in molecular oncology and patented two targeted therapies against cancer.
At the Novartis Institute of Biomedical Research, I continued my research in epigenetics and became interested in how nutrition, among other lifestyle factors, impacts our health and longevity. To sharpen my knowledge even further, I studied Nutrition Science at the School of Medicine at Stanford University.
Five years ago, I left the lab for the kitchen, where I developed a portfolio of delicious and highly nutritious recipes. I studied collagen, and the benefits surrounding this most abundant protein in our bodies, responsible for many of the visible signs of ageing. I researched the optimal way to restimulate its production and developed a line of collagen-based supplements called Formetta. I also built a consulting start-up, Dr. GoodNessMe, for those interested in optimising their health and longevity.
Dr. GoodNessMe offers nutritious and tasty food for kids and adults, cutting through marketing noise and replacing it with evidence-based facts.
Created out of love for good food and real science, Dr. GoodNessMe’s products range from breads & savoury to smart cookies, clean-cakes and raw vegan treats. They’re wholesome, guilt-free and delicious, and are available now to order.
I provide personal consultations and give workshops on how to optimise your health and wellbeing.
