Who are we?

We are Dr Lucy Burns and Dr Mary Barson, the founders of Real Life Medicine.  

Real Life Medicine was created in response to the epidemic of chronic disease swamping Australia

Our passion is enabling women to make the changes necessary for their own health and for the health of their families.

We do this by empowering you to love, nurture and care for your body in a supportive environment that is free of shame and guilt.

Our FREE book is the first step on your path to stop yo-yo dieting.

It's hard to get where you want to go if you've been given the wrong directions.

The current way of losing weight with calorie counting and restriction is not only wrong directions but the wrong map! They've given you the map to yo-yo dieting land.

Both Dr Lucy and Dr Mary had the map to yo-yo dieting land for many years. 10kg on - 10kg off, then 15kgs on 12kgs off. You know how the story goes. 

At Real Life Medicine we will show you the right way to lose weight and gain health and get off the dieting rollercoaster.

We've helped hundreds of women to lose weight with kindness and compassion, free of guilt and shame. 

Losing weight is about gaining health, not a number on the scales. You are worth so much more than that!

It's time ladies. Learn how to unlock your woodshed and reclaim your health and your life!

"Imagine if everything you've been told about losing weight was wrong..."
