I think it is always so interesting to hear other people’s stories, so here is mine…
I have experienced first hand the dramatic effect that dietary change and a healthy lifestyle can have on overall wellbeing. I travelled a lot in my 20’s and became very run down. My diet was terrible. I was fatigued, anxious and I kept falling ill. I needed help. Medical doctors and tests kept telling me that I was fine. On paper everything was “normal”. So I looked further afield. That is when I discovered the world of complementary therapy and the course of my life changed.
I visited a Nutritional Therapist and cleaned up my diet. I discovered and treated a candida infection. At this point I became functional again and started training to become a therapist myself.
Over the years I have used myself as an ongoing case study and through striving for continued improved health I have found out even more about my own potted health history… I’ve had various gut issues, chronic viral infections, toxicities including mould and mycotoxins, Lyme disease and environmental sensitivities. I even had a gum infection that never caused me any pain but that was causing huge stress for my whole body. There are many things that can drain health and vitality and I feel that I have had personal experience of many of them!
I have definitely learned that there are always connections that can be drawn for whatever is going on in the body. For example, toxicity will deplete the immune system which leaves the door open to infection. Add to that emotional upheaval, poor diet, environmental stressors and you have a recipe for failing health.
I try to turn a negative into a positive wherever possible, and through this journey of personal discovery I can’t tell you how much my knowledge base has expanded, which I can now use to help my clients.
I qualified in Nutritional Therapy in 2007 from the Institute for Optimum Nutrition. I am a member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapists (BANT) and the government recognised Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
In seeking to help clients with stubborn weight issues I have also qualified as a Coach in the internationally renowned Metabolic Balance® Weight Management programme.
A huge leap forward in my own health journey has actually come in recent years in the form of Bioresonance therapy. This is now as much a part of my consultations as diet and lifestyle discussion. You can read more about Bioresonance on this site, but I will just say for now that this is root cause, personalised support at its best. Bioresonance works by assessing and supporting the frequency disturbances in the body. It is an amazing tool for digging deeper and determining a route forward in even the most complex cases.
I may also incorporate Kinesiology muscle testing in my consultations. This is a holistic therapy using the body’s bio-feedback mechanism through muscle testing to gain information about the client. Having experienced this incredible therapy numerous times myself I trained as a practitioner a few years ago to add a whole new dimension to my consultations. Since training in Bioresonance, I use Kinesiology less than I previously did. However I do find it especially helpful for assessing and shifting emotional blockages and burdens and I use it frequently for this.
Far Infrared therapy is another addition to my practice. It is a lovely, relaxing experience, that calms the nervous system, stimulates blood flow, boosts the immune system and enhances detoxification.
All the therapies I have trained in, I have found through personal experience initially as a client myself. They have all been a part of my own healing journey, hence my enthusiasm to offer them to others.
I practice from a lovely clinic in Leamington Spa. I see clients of all ages – male and female. Health issues are diverse, though I do find that digestive problems, fatigue, hormonal and skin issues are very common – and usually interlinked!
You should expect your appointment with me to be a thorough consideration of the underlying imbalances in your health. I will give you practical dietary advice and lifestyle and supplement strategies to address what appear to be your major blockages to better health. I will also use my energetic testing methods as above to find key underlying burdens and obstacles stopping your body from doing what it should do naturally, which is to balance and be well.
