I was diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) at the age of 22. After a 7 year struggle, with no menstrual periods, acne & severe PMS, I developed my own program reflecting nutrition, rest, lifestyle and change. Based on this approach and my faith, this miraculously resulted in complete reversal of my symptoms. I am deeply passionate about women's health and how stress and the environment can trigger imbalances in our body. PCOS now affects 1 in 10 women. I also cover all area's of the endocrine system including PMS, endometriosis, fertility and preparing for pregnancy.
"I truly believe that lifestyle, faith, stress levels, and our mental outlook play a huge part in our body's ability to recover"
I am a registered Nutritional Therapist, regulated by the British Association of Nutritional Therapists (BANT) and registered with the Complementary Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). I am deeply passionate about women's health and helping you to feel better about yourself through healthier lifestyle choices. There is no one protocol, which works for everyone, however, if you can grasp how to adapt to your current environment and listen to your body, I believe this is a big step to improving your health. I will evaluate your time, lifestyle and budget and offer advice on the variety of organic, dairy, gluten, wheat free, and natural brands, and products available. I create detailed plans according to who you are and what your body needs through a naturopathic approach using nutrition, lifestyle, and your environment.
You may have heard the saying. 'Health starts in the mind'. I believe this to be true from my own personal experience. Often we look for a plaster for our symptoms and problems. The majority of us do not prioritise our health until it starts to get in our way of work and life. My father was diagnosed with Dementia and Parkinson's Disease at 53 years old. Seeing him decline over 14 years has encouraged me to look further into a healthy mind and how the environment affects our health. What causes the mind to decline? I believe one factor is oxidative stress we get from the environment around us, our food and products, starts off affecting small areas of our body as well as neurons in the brain. I believe we can prevent many diseases very early on by listening to our body. And if there are many different holes to fill, the single drug we're prescribed may not always be the answer.
Dr Bredesen said "Imagine having a roof with 36 holes in it, and a drug patched one hole very well—the drug may have worked on one hole, but you still have 35 other leaks, and so the underlying process may not be affected much"
