From my earliest memories, I struggled with a “sensitive stomach.” Fast forward to my teenage years when I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and a Peptic ulcer. After experimenting with various medications, I found solace in the arms of my first Naturopath. It was a game-changer, providing faster relief without the pesky side effects often associated with pharmaceuticals.

As time passed, my family faced its own health challenges. My daughter battled food allergies and intolerances from a young age. As a toddler, she was diagnosed with ADHD, a condition I managed effectively through dietary and lifestyle adjustments. Now an adult, she grapples with endometriosis and fibromyalgia.

My son entered the world with extreme colic, a painful ordeal for any parent. I vividly recall those tearful nights, holding him close as he clutched his aching stomach. It was during those trying times that I made the pivotal decision to explore the realm of natural health for him.

Initially, my husband and I ventured into the world of Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, and low-sugar product manufacturing to cater to a growing market (and keep our own family well-fed). However, when large supermarket chains joined the trend, we decided to pivot our business.

Around that same period, I faced my own health battleā€”a thyroid autoimmune disease known as Graves disease, the opposite of Hashimoto’s. Determined to take control of my health, I enrolled in an advanced diploma course in nutrition. This would equip me with the knowledge to make dietary adjustments to manage my condition effectively.

During my course, I had the opportunity to connect with fellow students pursuing naturopathy. The concept of customising herbal remedies to address individual health issues greatly intrigued me.

Adding to the mix, there was menopause, with its unique set of challenges. 

These experiences, both personal and professional, have provided me with a rich tapestry of knowledge and insights. I’ve learned that natural health and holistic wellness are not just buzzwords; they are pathways to a more balanced, vibrant life.

And now, after years of learning, growing, and adapting, I’m thrilled to share with you what I’ve discovered along the way. Whether you’re navigating health challenges, exploring the world of natural remedies, or simply seeking guidance on embracing a holistic lifestyle, you’ve come to the right place.
