As a young adult, I had many questions about my health.
Why was I always tried?
Was this normal?
Could I do anything about it?
I wanted to lose weight but I didn’t know where to start.
I lacked motivation and don’t know who to ask for help.
So many foods claimed to be healthy or had a “five-star rating”… whatever that was.
I would try a diet Id see online and would give up after a few days because I was hungry and sad.
I’d go to the local GP and ask for help. They would do a few blood tests and come back and say everything was all normal.
I had questions and I didn’t always want to have to go ask someone for the answer.
So I decided to be my own resource; I wanted to learn how to make myself feel better.
Now I like to help others do the same.
In Naturopathy we focus on being proactive rather than only reactive – prevention is better than a cure.
Naturopathic medicine is a system of medicine that uses herbs, diet, vitamins and lifestyle interventions to help return our bodies to homeostasis by removing the obstacles to good health.
My areas of interest include:
– neurotransmitter production and the management of low mood, including depressive and anxious symptoms
– stress management
– fatigue and energy
– food as medicine
– preconception nutrition
– weight loss and sports nutrition
– liver health
– female hormone management
My own experience with mood regulation and energy. Once I realised what I had been doing wrong and that I was actually supposed to feel GOOD all the time, there was no going back.
I love to cook, eat and travel. I also enjoy yoga, camping and fussing over my houseplants.
