I love my work, I truly do. Even on the toughest of days, I look forward to getting into the office and seeing my patients. So for me to sit and really think about why I feel that way, it was well, nice.
To some extent I have always been wired this way and I thank my beautiful Nanna, who sadly passed away just weeks ago at the ripe ol' age of 93, for this.
As a child I remember Nanna and I picking plants to feed to my teddy bears as medicine.
As a child, I remember heading to the chemist with Nanna, not to collect her medication, but to collect her vitamins and herbs.
As a child I remember Nanna reading to me, not children’s books, but passages from the nutrient bible.
Later in life, as a teenager, I remember my weight spiraling out of control and then fluctuating relentlessly.
As a teenager I remember feeling tired and moody, all of the time.
And as a young adult I remember wanting to do something about it. I remember wanting to find the answers and when I found my answers, I wanted to help others find theirs.
So I studied Naturopathy.
I genuinely wanted to help people first and foremost.
I wanted to help people wade through some of the health confusion and I wanted to give them a personalised and simplified treatment approach.
Now, more than ever, I want to help women in particular look after themselves, because as women, we tend to take care of everyone else before we take care of ourselves.
I love connecting people with their body, tuning them into the signs that something is not as it should be.
I want to encourage an awareness of the symptoms that are very common, but are not ‘normal’ and show people how to support their body back to a place of balance.
I want to build a truly helpful health and wellness team.
