Our health journey spans over 20 years, after a long struggle with CIRS (Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome) which led to a cascade of health issues.

Meet Rebecca Buhlman
Hi, I’m Rebecca. Growing up on a farm on the NSW North Coast was the beginning of my love of health and wellness.
After relocating to Sydney to start my corporate career, I began to suffer fatigue, extreme tiredness, PMS, sugar cravings, food intolerances, disrupted sleep, weight gain and constipation. I knew something needed to change!
This led me to research to understand how the body works on a functional level.
My sister, Rachel, and I constantly talked about nutrition and the latest research. We were curious to understand how we could fuel our bodies to have maximum energy and deal with all of these symptoms – this led to us both studying nutrition. It was on this path we realised that all the systems in our body are interconnected and we identified 5 Pillars to Optimal Health. We use these 5 Pillars to help clients achieve their long desired health goals.
From our relentless pursuit to resolve our own health issues it was uncovered that we have a pre-disposition to mould illness (CIRS, known as Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome).
CIRS results from mould exposure mainly from living in water-damaged rental properties. This can weaken the bodys’ immune system and its ability to create antibodies to remove toxins from the body, impacting the lymphatic system.
Managing this along with mineral balancing has been a pivotal piece of my health puzzle.
I have been on this healing journey for quite some time and through my personal experience and formal Nutrition qualifications I can relate to what my clients are going through. My search for answers has left no stone unturned.
I practice from a functional perspective, finding the root cause of underlying symptoms. I am a firm believer of the importance of Functional Testing and carefully choose tests relevant to what is presenting for a client.
I am confident I can empower you to take back control of your health; be proactive and preventative by providing easy digestible steps that can make significant changes to your health, diet and lifestyle.
It truly makes my heart sing to work with clients and their families to set goals and develop a plan that will support individuals to live their best life.
The reason I am here is to help people regain good health so they can live their life with vitality. I want to share my experience, passion and knowledge and don’t want anyone to waste any more time seeking answers. It truly makes my heart sing to work with clients and their families to set goals and develop a plan that will support individuals to live their best life.
I would love to help you on your journey.
Meet Rachel Doherty
I was fortunate to have had a wonderful upbringing in northern New South Wales near the gateway to the rainforests filled with home grown vegetables, freedom, open spaces, a love of horses and many carefree moments.
After relocating to the city, life became a lot more frantic and fast passed. Eventually my health took a turn and I found myself struggling with compromised digestive health, symptoms of food intolerances, hormonal and thyroid issues.
Despite these challenges, I was still able to enjoy life but knew my health could be so much better. Rebecca and I spent many years trying to find answers that conventional medicine didn’t seem to have. Eventually I was diagnosed by a functional doctor with CIRS (Chronic Inflammation Response Syndrome)- a condition which is usually caused by exposure to mould in a water-damaged building or a mouldy house (years of living in old Sydney rental properties). Unfortunately, CIRS can spin the immune system out of control. Many people do not realise that they are in fact genetically susceptible to mould illness based on their immune response genes.
Through our never-ending quest for optimum health and realising we had a strong interest in healing, we both embarked on formal training in Nutritional Medicine. I believe individualised nutrition plays a big role in helping people achieve optimum health. We all have different biochemistry and our deficiencies and imbalances, both nutrients and minerals, are different based on how we deal with stress, our current diet and that of our ancestors and the amount of toxins we have been exposed to in our environment.
Through my own personal experience, my formal qualifications and the knowledge I have gained in our clinic, I can empower you to take action and make significant changes to your health, diet and lifestyle. My approach is holistic, identifying root causes and using appropriate functional testing tools to uncover any underlying health issues.
Together with my sister Rebecca, we believe Heart2Heart Nutrition will help you and your family make good health decisions. We look forward to welcoming you into our clinic to set some realistic goals on how to live your best life yet.
I look forward to seeing you soon.
