Food allergies & intolerance
I am passionate about how we can try and protect our health, and how we can we gain the most from what we eat. I wasn’t always that way - but then when we are young, we can generally weather the storm of poor eating habits, lack of sleep, or partying too hard. I travelled a lot too, and then fell pregnant when living with my husband in New Zealand.
Although I had a healthy pregnancy, followed very quickly by another, my two beautiful boys wore me out. At least that is what I thought at the time. Overtired, with two under 3’s – isn’t that what happens to everyone? I was dragging my tired and aching body out of bed in the morning, and feeling as though I was about seventy. I thought that I was ageing incredibly badly and it was only when my septuagenarian father started to be able to race me up hills that I realised something was not quite right!
It turned out that I was suffering from a complete hormone imbalance that had led to chronically low iron levels. My eating pattern of clearing up off the children’s plates and crash dieting had not really helped the situation.
Since then my journey to wellness has led me to re-train as a Complimentary Natural Health Council registered Nutritional Therapist. I have raised two boys who know their quinoa from their cous-cous, and so I am aware of the time constraints and pressures of a busy family life, where often good food can take a back seat.
What I have learnt has helped me and more than 300 clients. Why not book a call and see if Nutritional Therapy can help you take back control of your waistline, and energy levels too?
