Learning about the impact that food has on health has been the most fascinating eye-opening journey of my life.
I was fortunate enough to meet a naturopath when London life was taking its toll on my health. Working for 25 years in the PR, yachting, restaurant and event industries provided amazing adventures and lots of fun, however it also came with poor dietary choices, high stress and late nights, playing havoc with my hormones, skin and gut health.
I was encouraged to make changes to my diet, some of which were easy and some took longer to adapt to, but seeing the improvements to my health and well-being over the years inspired me to keep going. I became more and more fascinated in the nutrient value and healing power of food which led me to study Nutrition for three years at the College of Naturopathic Medicine.
I now enjoy a much quieter and healthier life in West Sussex, having fallen in love with the South Downs where I walk with my dog as much as possible.
The other big passion in my life is yoga and I am just about to complete a 200 hour teacher training course. Yoga and meditation have been such calming influences in my life and I look forward to being able to recommend them alongside nutritional therapy. Stress is the biggest, often unrecognised, issue for so many people and something that I feel is essential to address alongside dietary changes.
We live in a world where we are spoilt for choice and often taste prevails over health. I believe there is a real need to get back to basics….
