Why Holistic Health & Natural Medicine?
It can help with
Without good gut health we can be creating a space for dis-ease and ongoing health issues to take hold.
Our bowel is our elimination & digestion zone, alongside our liver (the powerhouse of digestion), without it working efficiently we hold on to toxins, excess hormones, cholesterol and bacterial dysbiosis.
Hormone balancing includes good gut function, digestion and elimination.
Stress, Insomnia & Fatigue
Our non-stop modern lifestyle can place a heavy demand on our bodies, creating stress & leading to adrenal burnout, especially if we don't prioritise self-care and time-out and start doing the inner work.
Insomnia, fatigue, anxiety & stress are signals from your body that change is needed.
Natural medicine with life coaching, nutrition and lifestyle changes WILL transform your life, but only if you are ready to do the work and make the changes needed.
Nothing changes if nothing changes.
I am passionate about helping you uncover what is blocking you from making the changes you need to feel your best self.
I hold the space for you to activate that internal truth, work through your blocks & limitations and give you the tools to always have your own back.
Our endocrine system regulates our metabolism, is involved in digestion, plays a role in our growth and development as well as tissue function.
It is also involved in our sexual function, reproduction and sleep and mood, plus many more.
So as you can see, a hormonal imbalance could easily happen to any of us.
It could be appearing for you as weight gain, PMS, peri-menopause symptoms, headaches & migraines, skin issues, fatigue, stress, adrenal burnout...the list goes on.
Most woman don't know much about their bodies, and needlessly suffer through PMS, pain and discomfort, being told it is 'normal' or that the pill is the only option to fix it.
Whether you are in your fertile years looking for support or heading into peri-menopause and menopause, natural medicine and lifestyle changes can totally change your experience through these life seasons.
Sometimes you aren't sure what you need, maybe you are in an acute season of your life that is unusually stressful and you want to prepare and support your body through it, or you may have an acute issue like a cold, a bout of insomnia due to a lifestyle change or jet lag that won't go away, or you could just need a few things clarified to know what is right for YOU (not just the latest media fad).
With a few tweaks to nutrition and lifestyle we can get you back to feeling your best.
