After a stroke, which neccesitated the sale of my Natural Toiletries business, and learning to walk, read and talk again, I was motivated and inspired to find out as much as I could about how stress, diet, lifestyle and the enironment affects the brain, the gut, and the brain-gut connection. So I researched, studied, retrained and became fascinated with finding the root cause to symptoms, what symptoms may mean, how suppressing symptoms do not target the root cause of diseae, and how I could help people to recognose the symptoms that I had ignored for years.
Naturopathic Nutrition practice provides a holistic approach that encourages the body’s intrinsic healing ability, which in turn helps to address the root cause of any imbalance, create sustainable healing, and promote long term health and vibrancy.
In a non-judgemental consultation, I take into account your whole history, lifestyle, diet and environment, your likes, dislikes and motivations. With a no "diet" approach, I guide, educate and motivate you to begin by taking charge of your own health by making adjustments in your diet, lifestyle and environment, that may help to restore balance to your mind and body.
