My Health Story...
In the summer of 2006 I was diagnosed with M.E. or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, a condition which left me bed bound and exhausted. I was informed that this was a permanent condition for which there was no treatment and then I was discharged and left to go it alone. Two years later I was diagnosed with Endometriosis after a Laparoscopic procedure. Having suffered with extreme pain, heavy periods and multiple hospital admissions for nearly 8 years, I was somewhat relieved to finally have a diagnosis. However my options were limited to a hysterectomy, trying for a baby, or laser surgery (which is only a short term solution), none of which felt like viable options for me, so once again I was left with few options.
In October 2010 I decided to travel to Australia, where I lived for a year. Whilst there I found myself surrounded by an abundant recognition and awareness of naturopathic treatment. I decided to research naturopathy and nutrition for myself and became empowered by the abundance of information, success stories and hope that this brought. It was then that I decided to make some radical changes to my diet and lifestyle; even I could not have predicted the results! It was as close to a miracle as I have witnessed, and within a matter of months I was symptom free for the first time in years!
I wanted to learn as much as I could in order to help other people who had lost hope and had no improvement with conventional treatment options; so I returned to London to complete a diploma in naturopathy and nutrition at The College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM).
My most challenging moments due to poor health have inspired me to help guide others on their own journey to vibrant health. Changing my diet and transforming my health, not only created a new awareness of my body, mind and spirit, but I awoke to expanding my newfound compassion into all aspects of my life.
