Healing is a journey... There is no quick fix or pill that can offer us the solution to restore health.
However it is possible to achieve vitality and optimise our health by reshaping the multitude of choices we make every day. The way we eat, move, sleep and approach our lives.
A functional medicine approach to health that addresses diet, toxin exposure, exercise, emotional wellbeing and sleep, is the most effective route back to optimal health.
True healing is more than diet alone…
As a result of my own healing journey, I have developed a deeper recognition of how our emotional health impacts our body.
Unresolved and unhealed trauma, emotional struggles and stress, when not addressed, undermine our health to such an extent that we can be following an optimal diet, exercising and doing everything to support ourselves; yet if we don’t address the body as a whole and look to heal our emotional wounds, we can never feel truly healthy.
The body has an intelligence and language of its own. Unresolved, painful emotions are held in the body and cause dis-ease; if we overlook these, our body will always find a way to draw our attention to them.
These unresolved emotions cause stress to our body and If our nervous system is dysregulated and in a constant state of fight, flight, freeze or fawn, then our entire body and health is impacted as a result.
Which is why I believe so strongly in a wholistic approach that address both our emotional and our physical health with a strong focus on nervous system support.
Our emotional relationship to food also plays a huge role in our ability to make healthy changes and implement new habits.
My experience is that we all, (although unique to each of us) suffer from a variety of blocks that prevent us from making or sustaining healthier habits.
A large part of our work together will be looking at the limiting beliefs and emotional patterns around food and reshaping them to help us create a lifestyle that is working in service of our health goals and is therefore sustainable.
Where we can uncover what truly serves us and what to let go of that doesn’t, enabling us to achieve our health goals and create the life we desire.
“The anxiety of anger and other "negative" emotions like sadness and rejection may become deeply bound in the body.
Eventually it is transmuted into biological changes through the multiple and infinitely subtle cross-connections of the PNI apparatus, the unifying nexus of body/mind.
This is the route that leads to organic disease.
When anger is disarmed, so is the immune system.
