My Personal Story

My journey into nutrition and naturopathy

As most natural health practitioners do, I have a history of health issues that led me to nutrition and naturopathic medicine.

I suffered through childhood with constant nausea, colds and infections, bloating, abdominal pain, low moods and weight problems.

In my early teens I was diagnosed with severe anxiety. I suffered from frequent migraines and headaches, I was diagnosed with fibrocystic breast disease, and my digestive issues got worse. If that wasn’t enough, I developed emotional eating and binging.

In my early twenties I was overweight, suffering from IBS and I was diagnosed with depression.

In my early thirties I was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries syndrome (PCOS), I suffered from depression, my anxiety sky rocketed and I suffered from daily panic attacks. Later on I developed severe food intolerances.

I was thoroughly frustrated with the conventional medicine approach, so I started to look into natural medicine, particularly the influence of diet and nutrition.

I was told by my doctor that diet would have no effect but I decided to take matters into my own hands.

I believed I was eating healthy foods, following nutritional and health guidelines from books, TV, magazines and the government. Being naturally very curious and drawn to researching, I soon realised that my “healthy” food was making me ill. 

I overcame my health problems with only nutrition, lifestyle medicine and supplements.

I learned that we are all biochemically unique and what works for one person doesn’t work for another. I healed myself by learning what works for me. I learned to listen to my body and my symptoms. I identified and addressed the root cause, and I supported the underlying imbalance instead of simply suppressing the symptoms.

I experienced first-hand the healing power of nature, nutrition and lifestyle changes to improve my health. I wanted to get better understanding of the science of nutrition, naturopathy and nutritional therapy, in order to help others transform their own health.

Keen to continue learning about nutrition and naturopathy, I decided to enrol at the highly respected College of Naturopathic Medicine in London to study Naturopathic Nutrition. Following three years of studies in Biomedicine and Naturopathic Nutrition with clinical practice, I qualified as a Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist.

I understand how it is to feel overwhelmed by poor health. I can relate to the hopelessness and frustration associated with unresolved questions. I also know the relief that comes with identifying and addressing the root cause.

My health problems were the reason I qualified as a Nutritionist to be able to help others. With my combined qualification and first-hand experience, my aim is to help you support your health naturally and to restore you to optimal self.

I look forward to working together.
