I’ve always had a passion for people and their wellbeing.
I had my own health struggles with Adrenal Fatigue and Depression for many years. After visiting a lot of different doctors, and being misdiagnosed a few times, I eventually came across Functional Medicine.
I had to dig very deep inside myself, but with a lot of will power, soul searching, and eventually using the Functional Medicine approach, I found ways to help myself heal, cope, and even thrive today.
With my passion for all things natural, I’ve always been interested in natural health, and alternative ways of healing. I’ve done a lot of research, and have done numerous courses in the natural field, like EFT Tapping, and Herbalism. I also strongly believe that, for the body to heal, you need to heal the spirit and the mind. There is a very strong connection between those three, and you have to find the balance.
One of my top 5-character strengths is my love of learning, so I keep digging into my love of alternative therapies.
I have gained a lot of knowledge on my path to wellness and would love to empower and inspire you to draw on your strengths to find the motivation & answers within to make those lasting changes to live a life full of vitality and good health.
