About Ruth

My passion is to help busy women redesign their lives and become the best version of themselves.

When it’s time to experience True + Deep + Genuine Health*, with more Energy, Happiness and Flow in your life, you want someone who will Guide, Support and Empower you back into True Balance**

* Free from restriction, hunger and boring salads; ** with kindness, ease and joy, AND in the most effective way possible!

You’re a busy and dedicated person and you’ve got all the crazy things going on in your life right now – work, family, other external pulls – all demanding your time and energy.  And on top of that, you’ve reached “that stage of life” where your body and energy levels have changed – and not in a way that makes you jump for joy.

Don’t you wish you just had someone who could tune in, identify within your body and life what’s out of balance, and support you with love back into alignment? [in a way that doesn’t shame or overwhelm you?]

Well, you’re in just the right place, my friend!

You see, that’s where I come in.

Imagine what it would be like to experience true health

where you feel great in your body, your energy levels are the best they’ve been for decades, and your mind is clear and calm.

What’s more, you’re utilising your strengths and showing up in the world the way that you were born to. 

  • You wake up each morning feeling refreshed and excited about the day ahead.
  • You feel amazing in your body – your skin is glowing; you have consistent energy throughout the day and bloating is a thing of the past (or a reminder of that special meal you had out with friends the previous night / or a simple reminder to realign…)
  • Life is flowing (most of the time!)
  • You’re experiencing that Self-Love that everyone talks about. This whole new relationship with food that you couldn’t previously imagine, and a loving relationship with your body. Seriously! And this self-love radiates out into all aspects of your life – your relationships with loved ones, your creativity, even your wealth!
  • You feel and look better than you have for decades.
  • Those daily habits you’ve been trying to start now seem easy, and you even enjoy them.
  • It’s easy to fall (and stay) asleep

And if your life is far from this, I see you, I understand. And that’s where I come in.

You’re the type of person who…

  • Would really love to have more consistent energy in your life
  • Realises that the quick-fix approaches don’t work and you’re ready to try a long-term approach (which also brings short-term wins)
  • Knows deep down that Holistic modalities are the way forward, although HRT, surgery or Botox are looking more appealing as the symptoms head further south
  • Is ready to transform your health to the next level


You haven’t found the right combination that works.

Maybe you…

try to eat healthily but are still struggling with yo-yo dieting, energy slumps, mood swings, digestive or gut health issues, or over-eating


You think “That’s just the way it is because of…

  • my genes
  • my age
  • my work/family situation
  • Peri-menopause or Menopause
  • Fill-in-the-blank!!”
OR you…
  • Feel tired when you get up, even though you went to bed in good time.
  • Struggle with brain fog, or regular slumps throughout the day, and reach for caffeine or sugar (or stronger!!) to get you through.
  • Feel uncomfortable in your body, and nothing that you used to do works anymore, or it’s simply unsustainable. (Hello belly fat, why are you still there, even after all that core work and cardio sessions – seriously?!)
  • Notice changes in your skin – maybe crepey or sagging, bags & circles around the eyes. And don’t start on all the money spent in desperate hope that the next body lotion bought will be the one that makes the difference… Am-I-right? (You’re not alone!)

Maybe you’re so busy meeting everyone else’s needs that you’ve no time or energy left to do what you want to do – not that you know what that is!

And deep down you know there’s a better way, a holistic way that’s right for you.

And I’m here to tell you that there is.

I’m Ruth Balsiger, a Holistic Vitality Transformation Coach*. I work with people who want to out-thrive themselves through re-balancing their body, mind and life, tapping into your body’s innate intelligence**.


*The comprehensive title I’ve appointed myself, because true balance and vitality only happens when every part of your Unique Self (your mental, emotional, physical, physiological & spiritual aspects) is in balance and radiates from the inside out – so the title “Nutrition & Health Coach” simply doesn’t cut it!
**Your body always knows the answer! I teach you how to listen to your body…Utilising everything that’s already within you (which you’ve possibly forgotten about), bringing that back into balance rather than trying to “fix” and adapt from outside influences.


Ok, it’s not exactly a SECRET that you want to feel younger, have more Energy, and be happier within your body

We live in a Quick-fix society (diets, over-exercising, fasting…) which may give you results in the short-term but creates more imbalance & dissatisfaction in the long-term.

This adds to feelings of failure, helplessness, shame, beating yourself up… which buries any remaining motivation.

Given the wrong information – marketing (food companies’ goal is profit NOT our health). Meanwhile, our innate body wisdom becomes out of balance, and we’re the ones making a loss.

Instagram / social media leads to comparison-itis and perfectionism.

Over time, we’ve lost sense of what balance and true health is, and become overwhelmed with what we perceive we should do.

We experience lack of time to ourselves, trying to do everything, and be everything, to everyone else – giving from an empty cup.

Some people think there are only 2 approaches – the “Western” modern way OR the Eastern Traditions

I disagree and love to combine ancient wisdom with evidence-based science, along with my own intuition.

My unique approach combines Western and Eastern modalities:
  • Ayurveda
  • Nutrition
  • Health
  • Personal Training
  • Yoga
  • EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)

to help YOU to reset, rejuvenate and re-balance.

I’ve been supporting clients for over 15 years.
But please don’t feel intimidated – [wink, lol]

All YOU need to remember is that I have the experience, wisdom and intuitive awareness to support you to THRIVE, from the inside out.

Using a variety of practices, I’ll meet you where you’re at and guide you along your Well-being Journey to your desired outcome.

I’ve been working with clients in the health & wellness industry for over 15 years and am certified in numerous qualifications (if you’re interested please ask and I’ll be happy to share these with you).

Here’s some more info about me to help you decide if I’m ‘the one’ for you:

1 – When I was 15 years old, I nearly died from a Brain Aneurysm and, after being in a coma for 2 weeks, was told that I’d never walk again. I had to fight for my health. (It’s OK, I won!)

2 – I’ve had a career in Modelling which led me to a very unhealthy place with disordered eating. I understand what it’s like to have had an unhealthy relationship with food.

3 – I’m NOT a Dietician and personally don’t like the word “DIE-T”. I’m about feeling alive, about out-THRIVING ourselves. Also, the word “Diet” is often associated with restriction which is the opposite to what I’m about. I’m also NOT a Naturopath. Both Naturopathy and Ayurveda approach wellness from a holistic point of view. The difference is that Naturopathy concentrates more on providing natural therapeutic treatments for diseases while Ayurveda focuses on balancing body, mind and emotions through creating harmony from the inside out.

4 – I’m not here to cut corners, to “push through” or be your “kick up the butt”. If I do suggest any “Quick Fixes” they will be with the intention of creating balance within your body. (With that said, you can absolutely expect improvements straight away.)

5 – I was born in Germany – but never quite felt at home in Germany. I have previously lived in New Zealand as well as Switzerland, and currently live in Australia with my 2 gorgeous teenage daughters, husband and my darling-puppy girl. I know what it’s like to be time-poor and pulled in all directions.

My values are:
  • LOVE and Kindness
  • Integrity and Authenticity
  • Learning
  • Health
  • Transformation.
When working with clients, my focus is:
  • Simple & Doable
  • Ease & Balance
  • With Love & Joy
  • Nurturing & Delicious
  • Support
  • Address the root cause
  • Longevity

I want EVERYONE to feel their inner glow and to tap into their full potential.

I know, it’s a big call! And really, while I’d absolutely LOVE to help EVERYONE, I’m currently called to support those of you who are:
  • Going through peri-menopause (which may begin as early as your mid-30s or as late as your mid-50s) or menopause.
  • Heading towards, going through or recovering from burnout.
  • Already experiencing some success & are looking to create more balance in your life, taking your success to a whole new level.
  • Feeling only mediocre in your body and life.
There’s so little information being provided, much confusion and (usually) limited options when discussed with the doctor.
My gifts include…
  • I’m able to tune into my client’s bodies (mental, emotional, physical & physiological) and “hear” whether something is in alignment or not. Often I can “hear” what’s not being said and what wants to come through, often from the unconscious.
  • During the years I’ve spent working with hundreds of clients I have seen some common themes. This is great for you as I utilise all my experience to create sustainable and valuable resources. I can “smell” recurring problems and mistakes and can connect people to solutions they need. I am highly attuned to what needs to happen for you to thrive within your community.
  • I have an innate need for Truth and Integrity and this runs through everything that I offer you. As a result, you can be sure that any “short cuts” or “hacks” will support your long-term goals as well as short-term benefits.
  • I have a thirst for ongoing study – yes, I’m a perpetual student! Study for me does include formal learning, but more importantly I learn through experience. I walk my talk and never suggest anything that I have not tried for myself (and my family and friends too!)
  • Practice makes perfect. Skillful accomplishment is only achieved through trying, experimenting and preparing.
Through working with me

You receive breakthroughs on what’s draining your energy and impacting your health including self-limiting beliefs, behaviours and old habits that don’t support you.

You get clarity on what is really going on without self-blame, guilt or shame.

You reconnect with your innate body wisdom and intuitive healing self.

You balance your hormones, digestive system and other body systems.

You create sustainable habits that honour your unique body & lifestyle.

All of which results in

MORE ENERGY – without divorcing your partner, resigning from your job or giving away your children or fur babies!

FEEL AMAZING IN YOUR BODY – without calorie or macro counting, fad dieting or spending hours in the gym.

FEEL AND LOOK YOUNGER – without spending millions on botox and beauty products (that may or may not work).

Here’s how that happens…


We discuss your goals (big and small – anything that deviates from you living your best life) and take a full assessment of where you’re at – your habits, lifestyle, stress levels, digestion, health history etc. I’ll ask lots of questions, listen deeply, and tune into your body. From these questions, answers and intuitive guidance, I’m able to get an understanding of where in your body, mind, emotions and life there is imbalance.


You choose one area / aspect of your life to begin resetting & re-balancing.

* While I am always with you in every step of the process, hearing & understanding you, holding space, empowering, and motivating you as well as holding you accountable, I will not hand out instructions on what to do or not to do. I might suggest things but this is always done in teamwork with yourself. It is essential that you feel comfortable with the area selected and the way forward until we meet again. My intention is to empower you every step of the way.

  • A time is scheduled for our next session. How often we meet and in what format depends on your goals and the depth and form of imbalance. I simply suggest and translate to you what your body, mind and emotions are telling me.
  • After our initial session, you will receive a follow-up with a brief summary of what we discussed.
During subsequent sessions
  • We celebrate what worked.
  • We look at what requires more love and attention.
  • If I hear your inner critic, or judgement towards yourself, I guide you towards being curious. Outdated beliefs may be addressed and resolved, and sometimes some healing.
  • We address resistance with love and curiosity – never shame or guilt.
In between sessions
  • I fully support, accompany, motivate and check in with you via WhatsApp. I believe that this support in between sessions is crucial to your success since we are greater when in community.
  • Sometimes “things come up” outside of our sessions which can be addressed and often resolved.
