After a stroke from a torn neck artery, which necessitated 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 environment 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 disease, and how I could help people to recognise the symptoms that I had ignored for years.


Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy provides a holistic approach that encourages the body’s innate healing ability, which in turn helps to address the root cause of imbalance, create sustainable healing, and promote long term health and vibrancy.


In a non-judgmental consultation, I look into your whole history and potential genetic pre-dispositions going back two generations, your lifestyle, diet and environment, your likes, dislikes and motivations.  With a no "diet" approach, I guide, educate and motivate you to begin taking charge of your own health by making gradual adjustments in your diet, lifestyle and environment, that may help to restore balance to your mind and body.  


I am a Western Nutrition Advisor tutor at The College of Unani Tibb and Alternative Medicine (CUTAM)

I continue to study and increase my knowledge and keep up to date with the world of health.
