About me

Hi, I'm Sue-Anne Hickey, avid cyclist  and nature enthusiast. Over the past few years I followed a dream that I held on to for 27 years and finally did some solo cycle-touring, camping and carrying all my gear. My favourite trip was to  the Gaspé, Eastern Quebec.  


That was before I met the love of my life, 3 years ago. So these days you can find us just west of Montreal, biking, hiking or kayaking (a new sport we  recently took up) In the winter we both love snow and skiing.

My happy place is in the kitchen, creating delicious healthy snacks and meals, I dabble in watercolour painting,  I'm a speaker and I'm working on  writing the Bodytypology book, set to come out early 2022. 

Before I got here, I had a lot to learn along my own healing journey...

Always healthy?

That's me,  combining my passion for yoga and cross country skiing. :)

Although I grew up following a fairly healthy lifestyle, before I became a naturopath I definitely wasn't as healthy and strong as I am now! 

I was much weaker – falling asleep at my desk before lunch. My energy was up and down all day unable to find the motivation to do the things I love, participating in sports and spending quality time with friends.

I was hypoglycemic, constantly craving sweets using carbs to try to find and keep my energy up.  My body was overly acidic, causing my hands to be covered with eczema.  I had lost my healthy glow and all vibrancy. But, what’s more I was nearly ready to accept that this was the way my life would be.

Around the world spiritual journey

I set off on a solo spiritual journey that lasted a year and a half. I was searching for answers for the key to what holds us back from attaining all that we want.

I did my yoga teachers training course in southern India, I did 4 ten day silent meditation retreats, I learned about Buddhism in a monastery in Nepal, stayed at ashrams in India and Indonesia.

It was Eat Pray Love, Canadian style. :)

My Practice as a Naturopath

In 2006, I decided to extend my expertise in natural healing and started training as a naturopath.

Eating right for my body type completely transformed my health, my energy skyrocketed, my hypoglycaemia was a thing of the past, my eczema disappeared and never came back, my energy skyrocketed and I never felt better.  

I knew I had to share this with as many people as possible.

I created Bodytypology: System for Lasting Weight Loss

A personalized healthy eating weight loss system that works better than any diet.
Drop the pounds easily as you learn to nourish your body with the right foods at the right time.

The plan is easy to follow so you are sure to succeed!

It provides you with specific foods to eat for breakfast lunch and dinner. Nourish your body to lose weight without using unhealthy meal replacement shakes or bars that slow down your metabolism and make long term weight loss impossible.

There are 4 body types for women
