When I was young we took herbal tonics, grew sprouts, raised chickens and drank goats milk. My aunt was a naturopath in the 70’s. As a little girl I believed this was how we all looked after our health.
When I qualified and worked in clinic as a Naturopath, now 20 years ago, I realised this wasn’t the case. Many people who came to me thought this was alternative and there was confusion and distrust. I then went on to study Medicine. Fast forward through hospital medicine, emergency trauma, psychiatric wards to general practice – and a very different view of my world was formed.
I’ve dedicated my life to learning about wellness and how to re-establish balance and a sense of peace. I’ve seen both sides of the health industry and they are both valid and valuable. How does this help you? I’ll bet you have questions like these every day.
I’m here to simplify health. To help you find the answers that you’re looking for. To educate and inspire you to make small easy changes that create a massive impact on your quality of life. You need support, you need to be honoured with quality education that you can apply, you need to be confident and not overwhelmed.
But only YOU know what is right for you (and your people), find those who will listen and who you trust. I can’t do this alone, so I’ve rallied the best health professionals I can find to share their passion for wellness with you in my Simple Way to Wellness blog and newsletter. It’s our gift to you and we want you to join our tribe.
