My health journey...

Healthy eating and living have always been a part of my character (it's the Virgo in me!) however, my career in Nutrition for Women's Hormonal Health actually began after I suffered with my own hormonal health problems - Fibroids, Menorrhagia (heavy menstrual bleeding) and Anaemia.

When I turned 30, my periods began to get really heavy, long and clotted - I regularly experienced sudden flooding onto my clothes and my bedsheets were saturated by morning. My abdomen blew up like a balloon during menstruation and I had extreme fatigue and irritability during my period.

It often took me a week to recover after my period finished and it wasn’t long before the next one started! My cycle became irregular and my periods were so heavy, my body never had time to recover before the next.  Over time, the excessive blood loss put me in an anaemic state and I barely had the energy to walk to the shop or up the stairs in my office building!

Some days I found it so difficult to drag myself out of bed to go to work, I just wanted to call in sick, because my body was so drained!  There were mornings when I had to turn back home to get changed, because my period had already flooded onto my clothes!

Each time I visited the doctors their only recommendation was to take take the pill or medications to reduce the bleeding and a constipating iron supplement for the Anaemia.

An ultrasound - it showed I had a Fibroid growth on the outside of my uterus, a benign tumour, linked to too much oestrogen and known to cause heavy periods.

I was told the only solution was surgery, but it had risks -  especially if I wanted to have children in future.  I felt very disempowered and disappointed with the medical solutions.  I knew taking the pill or meds would only mask the problem and I didn’t want to have surgery.  I needed to know what my causes were and find some better solutions.

I decided to take control of my own health to find out the root causes and explore alternative, natural options that would offer me long term results.  I sought the help of a Nutritional Therapist who took a much deeper look at my health history and symptoms and gave me a personalised nutrition and supplement plan to help rebalance my body and hormones. 

I also took Chinese herbal medicine alongside acupuncture treatment and I gradually changed to an organic plant based diet, which brought me further benefits.

As I followed the plan, my body started to re-balance and the symptoms reduced.  My periods got lighter, less clotted and more manageable and I started to feel normal and energised again. I had less bloating and no menstrual pain and I was no longer anaemic.

With a few simple dietary changes and specialised supplement support, my condition improved a lot. It felt great to be in control of my own health!

I also invested in functional hormonal testing, which gave me a much more detailed picture of what was happening with my hormones. This information enabled me to target my treatment more, measure my hormone levels and how they were detoxifying.

I was so pleased with my results that I immersed myself in learning more about natural solutions for women's health and decided to re-train as Registered Nutritional Therapist. I felt such a strong calling to help other women suffering with similar issues, who desperately need these tools too.

Now I help women through my 1-1 nutrition & lifestyle programmes, personalised testing and nutrition coaching to balance their hormones and get back to optimal health, using natural solutions that work in harmony with the female body.
