Jessica Scott Young is a clinical nutritionist and northern beaches local. Having grown up with a love of food and the outdoors, Jess embraces an integrated approach to health and wellbeing.
Jess is passionate about using ‘food as medicine’, encouraging clients to eat ‘real food’ and implement the basic pillars of good health in a simple and manageable way.
Having spent over a decade in the fast paced media industry, Jess was drawn to nutritional medicine through her own struggles with burnout and gut health.
Passionate about gut health, Jess created her own bone broth business when living London, frequenting the local markets in the depths of winter to educate people on the importance of gut and immune health. The solution - one cup of nourishing bone broth a day.
Returning home in 2018, Jess created her own no nasties, gut lovin’ pate called The Gut Jar which she now sells to further support client’s gut and iron needs. The Gut Jar pate was created to support people with low iron, digestive disorders, postpartum women and fussy eaters (aka kids) as a way to nourish their needs with nature's most nutrient dense superfood - liver. The Gut Jar aims to make liver sexy again #uglydelicious.
Jess has a special interest in teen health, digestive health, thyroid health, stress/ burnout, mood disorders such as anxiety, and postpartum depletion.
When not practicing, you can find Jess whipping up a batch of her gut lovin’ pate, at pilates, ocean swimming, cuddling her nieces, hunting out the best coffee spots, wandering the local farmers markets and enjoying dinner parties with friends.
