My Approach is Integrative and Holistic…
I offer a unique approach for boosting immunity, optimise your wellness and help you heal from inside out..
My Personal Journey
I come from a family who love food. My mum and maji inspired my curiosity in food and my love of food. I saw how creatively and effortlessly they catered for everyone’s needs using the same ingredients (there were 9 of us in my home as a child ).
My heritage food wisdom is what I return to alongside my training to support the people who need this approach.
I will always remember my first job as a social worker with children with moderate to severe disabilities and babies with terminal illness who lived away from their families.
My love of food helped me focus on being creative and supporting their holistic wellbeing using good food principles from my upbringing , heritage and culture – what this gave me was an ease to go to many recipes from my childhood that I passed on to them and supported our cooks to do the same. I recall how instrumental this was for C who had many allergies and intolerances. With my support, I helped her enjoy new foods because of her intolerances. It was a creative experience and I am truly grateful for the faith the families had in me to support them at that time. C went on to eating biscuits, cakes, breads and a variety of dishes which was so uplifting to see ( this was in the 1980’s).
I use a holistic and supportive approach for people who come to work with me. I support them to grow their self care offering food that is healing and sustainable to their future wellbeing.
Research provides greater insight on the important connection between our gut, brain and stomach and emotions which are all fundamental to our holistic wellbeing therefore supporting emotional resilience is key ..
My Training / CPD
I choose to train in Naturopathic Nutrition and Naturopathic techniques for preventing illness and organ support. I am trained in many alternative holistic therapies and draw on these in my work to offer a unique approach to the people who wish to work with me .
My love of whole food, my way of life empowers others to understand the many way they can be supported to heal from inside out.
I understand about biodynamic foods, their health benefits of eating seasonally and how to understand the intricate relationship between the digestive system, lungs, heart and focus on organ support as this is the vital relationship food and minerals play on our major organs. I use the moon connection which is an important contributor to maintaining wellbeing using the oush and pull of its influence. I use my knowledge and training of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) principles for optimising organ support. I now add Homeopathy as this offers a lot of ways to help us heal from inside out and I am excited to be training and offer this therapy alongside my other therapies – a system I have used for 30 years plus.
I understand the importance of nurture wellbeing using seasons and eating seasonal food
How to support weakened organs with TCM , natural nutrition and holistic organic herbs
How to improve health and restore vitality and the many ways to repair and support gut and mental health
How to use alternative and complementary therapies alongside natural food and support people make changes for better lifestyle choices
How to re-utilise natural food for better health and support key stages of life as these are key for optimising well being outcomes.
The importance of traditional Chinese medicine and the body clock wisdom is key to restoring health when using healing food and I use this methodology as I listen carefully to peoples story and what their organs are saying about their health.
I attend CPD courses, training events and Practitioner seminars each year as we continue to learn the benefits of natural food and how we can synthesise real food. There are developments in Natural Nutrition all the time and so the evidence based approach is essential in this profession to support and improve clients health goals.
As I deepened my understanding – I became better and more informed on the principles of good Nutrition and the importance of eating well and the many ways we can remineralise the body and restore health and equilibrium.
I even more passionate today as I was then about vitality rich food and helping others optimise their health and wellbeing goals which is why my business is called nourished naturally.
I love food
I love to cook meals fresh and from scratch each day – I share these principles in my 121’s and in 121 cookery classes.
