MY PERSONAL STORY
My additional valuable ‘qualification’ is my journey to improved health with the help of nutrition.
From an early age, I suffered with colds and a runny nose (the butt of family jokes) which continued through my teens with constant sinus infections and IBS symptoms. However, I learned to ‘live with it’ for many frustrating years. I understand your frustration of ‘not feeling right’.
My quality of life became severely affected partly due to the anxiety it caused. I appreciate your anxiety concerning your health. Desperate to reduce my maddening symptoms, I started researching dietary approaches. I made changes to my diet and was surprised how such small changes made such big differences to my wellbeing. I felt so much better, it was a great relief. However, I knew I needed professional guidance and functional testing not being available on the NHS, I rang a Nutritional Therapist.
She assured me that personalised nutrition may indeed be of great help. She explained how my digestive and immune systems were out of balance, each one making the other malfunction and contributing to my mood and mind symptoms. I cried with relief to hear a solution to my problems. Those 20 minutes transformed my life and this is why I am passionate about providing the same free consultation for you.
Shortly after this time I decided this was what I wanted to do for others. Call it a calling. I had experienced first-hand the power of nutrition to improve my health and eagerly wanted to do the same for others – for people like you.
I felt so much better yet honestly believed that I could feel even more so. So I signed up at the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition to study nutritional therapy.
Four years of study brought me a wealth of scientific knowledge. I was still solving pieces of my personal puzzle, but also planning how I could help others. I realised years of cumulative stress (both physical and emotional) had also taken its toll on my health. No wonder I had (seemingly unrelated) symptoms all over my body! What a steep learning curve I was on.
MY COMMITMENT TO YOU
Nutritional Therapists are unable to offer to ‘cure’ or ‘treat’ you; that is the role of medically-trained doctors. My role is to identify physiological imbalances in your body and support them nutritionally in your quest for optimum health. What I can offer is my commitment to offering you the best service I possibly can to help you achieve your wellbeing goals.
