"THE ROAD WAS LONG, BUT THE JOURNEY WAS WORTH TAKING".
My career started with various degrees in Marketing, Bookkeeping and IT diplomas. However, the best degree has been my personal life’s journey.
At the end of 2006, I was burnt out and retired from Corporate SA after driving their National Marketing sales. Years of stress had taken their toll on my body in the form of chronic disease: Fibromyalgia, Fibro Shocking, Fibro Fog, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Adrenal Fatigue, Hypothyroidism, Non-alcoholic Fatty liver, Insulin Resistance, pre-diabetes, IBS, PCOS, Low blood Pressure, Allergies, and a weight gain of 20Kg on my 5ft.1 body.
I had researched all I could on dieting, knew of over 96 diets on the market including juicing, cutting carbs etc. I had seen numerous doctors, physicians, clinicians, specialists, Weight Watchers, WeighLess, and I was just getting worse. Despite all my research, nothing much had changed in relation to my health.
I decided to turn to education in Nutrition with regards to health, food allergies and intolerances. My desire was to find my way back to living a full and abundant life, which included helping others who were struggling. I studied health and coaching through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, diagnostics through Functional Diagnostic Nutrition, and Bio Individual Nutrition for children and Autism as well as Scenar therapy.
This journey began in 2015 and the results have been remarkable. I am proud to say that I am in remission from Fibromyalgia, lifted Fibro fog and Fibro shocking, normalised my fatty liver, lifted the Chronic Fatigue, Hypothyroidism, IBS, Allergies, PCOS, normalised my blood sugars, normalised my Vit D levels, corrected my Cholesterol, corrected my Blood serums and balanced my hormonal system-which included saying goodbye to sleepless nights and years of constipation and laxatives.
I’ve also gone back to exercise like running, yoga, HIIT in my fifties which I hadn’t been able to do in years. I include natural supplements to support my body and I can now exercise with a combination of running, yoga and training, either by myself or with my clients, which a few years ago was not possible.
My new relationship to food and life has reset my cells and provided the winning combination in giving me back my health and freedom, which I’ve given to each and every one of my clients too.
