We are a team of passionate professionals made up of nurses, health coaches, nutritionists and a lifestyle medicine doctor.
Siobhan’s unwavering passion for health and her commitment to simplifying complex medical information so people can participate in their own health have been the driving force behind her journey.
Having worked as a nurse across various countries, she became deeply troubled by the rising incidence of chronic diseases among middle aged populations often resulting in a compromised work and personal life.
Despite becoming a senior leader in the pharmaceutical industry, Siobhan’s pursuit of solutions led her to a pivotal realisation: the remarkable power of Lifestyle Medicine. It became evident that the way we live significantly influences our health and how we respond to medical interventions. Despite mounting evidence indicating that healthy lifestyles could prevent up to 80% of chronic illnesses, this crucial information was often overlooked in traditional medical approaches. Despite her best efforts she could not persuade her Pharma colleagues to share her passion for this topic or share the information.
Fuelled by the scientific evidence on the transformative impact of lifestyle choices on well-being and her relentless drive to help people become the healthiest possible versions of themselves, Siobhan chose to champion this cause independently, leading her to establish her company, Ignition Go Health. Witnessing the transformations and improvements in employee health as well as positively impacting the culture of companies has proven beyond all doubt that healthier people produce healthier happier and more resilient companies.
80% of chronic disease is preventable.
Our survey of over 1,000 employees showed that 60% have two or more metabolic health risks including high blood pressure, cholesterol, liver fat, fatigue and unhealthy weight.
- In a recent 6 month Ignition Go ‘real life’ study in a large organisation of day workers, shift workers & night workers 91% of participants said the programme was valuable to their health.
- There were significant improvements in nutrition, exercise & sleep.
- There was also significant improvements in quality of life reported in terms of mood, energy and outlook in life.
- All of this is proven to significantly improve metabolic health.
