Who are we?

First and foremost, we are all passionate about health.

We care about people having freedom of choice. The right to choose what healing path is right for them. Regardless of whether that path is medical or not, we believe in the power of information to help people make decisions that are ultimately right for them.

Each one of us has completed Basecamp for Health with Don Tolman and whilst we stand upon this as our foundation for health, we have also learnt from many other Masters on the health and healing path.

And, lastly, but most importantly, we are great friends. We love hanging with each other and the fact we get to run a business together, is most certainly a bonus!

We look forward to meeting you.

A little bit about me…

As an intuitive, sensitive being who grew up in an environment that constantly served lemons – I learnt how to make lemonade! Deep down, I knew there was more to life, so when an opportunity presented itself in 1993 to move to Melbourne (from Adelaide), I grabbed it with both hands!

My passion…

Besides my gorgeous husband (and food), my passion is helping people ‘find their way’ to a lighter, brighter, greater and more magickal version of themselves. “A candle never loses its light when lighting another candle.”

Things I’ve done…

I wrote a book – A Foodie’s Guide to Juice Fasting to help people do a 7 day juice fast. As a self-proclaimed foodie, I know what it’s like to go without the very thing you love the most and so…I feel I have a lot to offer as most people don’t think they can go without food, let alone fast!

My foundation is in the sacred arts, Tarot, Essential Oils, Crystals, Astrology, Numerology and Ritual and I am often found playing in these spaces to help people on their path.

A little bit about me…

I grew up in a low socio-economic family in the west of Sydney. Little was I to know that my early foundations would shape who and what I wanted to be in life, because I wasn’t a fan of what I had. Having experienced such contrast was a big help with my transition.

I love keeping fit, self-development, trekking the great outdoors, growing our own food on our 14 acre property, buildings things, and I am a great lover of words. I spent most of my life by the sea and more recently adopted a tree change to experience the contrast. So far so good 😊

My passion…

I followed the wellness path from my early 20’s after suffering a near-death experience, and I now value everything this amazing planet provides, and what our minds and thoughts are capable of.

I am passionate about holistic health. To me, health and wellbeing is much broader than just food. It is critical that our focus and our approach, the language we use, and how we think about ourselves is equally as important. I have spent endless hours researching and learning the benefits of food, fasting, and mindset and continue this practice daily.

Things I’ve done…

I studied health coaching at The Institute For Integrative Nutrition, New York (IIN), graduating with a Diploma in 2015. I have also had the privilege of coaching many people through different circumstances and events in their life with great outcomes. Some of these people just needed an accountability coach, while others needed a deeper level of knowledge.

There’s an old saying “behind every great man there’s a great woman.”

Well, behind every great TEAM this also applies.

Our Great Woman is Nichola Miles.

Sure, she is also the woman behind Jason Miles but the HEAL U Team functions a whole lot better because of all she does. Whether Nic is making us food, taking minutes, chasing us up for stuff we promised to do or making sure our wine glass is filled…Nic keeps us all focused and on track!

She might be behind the scenes, but she is by no means a shy wallflower!

And…you will get to feel her genuine care, warmth and support for your journey when you meet her at the Retreat!
