When I first read the quote above, I had no idea how much it would change my life or that it would inspire my journey to become a Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist.
Back then, nagging symptoms dominated every day. I know exactly what it’s like when you’re pushing through life not feeling 100%. Now I know how fantastic it feels when you’re calling the shots, not your symptoms.
For a decade, I worked in a very pressurised corporate environment. I saw the effects of poor nutrition, lack of sleep, high stress and an over reliance on sugar, caffeine and alcohol. Too many people were merely surviving rather than thriving – myself included!
Daily bloating, frequent headaches, constant nausea, severe PMS, fatigue and weight fluctuations were a part of everyday life. For too long, I assumed these symptoms were normal. After all, we’re all busy, stressed and tired, aren’t we?
But on reading the above quote, I realised that I deserved better. It was time to invest in my health so I could get on top of my symptoms and feel happier and healthier.
It was the lightbulb moment that set me on the path to seeing a Nutritional Therapist for my own benefit and then retraining to become one myself.
Now I help people to get to the root cause of their symptoms and feel their best again. I specialise in metabolic health – weight loss and diabetes – as well as gut health as they have so much influence on our overall health.
Every system in the body is interlinked and symptoms are the body’s way of telling us something isn’t right. My role is to help you find answers and empower you to make the right choices for you.
I customise nutrition recommendations and lifestyle advice so you can get back to feeling your best.
As a Registered Nutritional Therapist, every recommendation I make must be backed by scientific evidence.
My support is customised to you and that includes a flexible approach to change. If you only feel comfortable making one change per week, that’s fine. If you’re ready to take on a challenge, let’s go. We’ll work at a pace that suits you.
All I ask is that you’re ready to start making changes, take back control and be the champion of your own health. I’ll be there to support you every step of the way.
