Although all the different services I offer are listed separately, I actually use a combination of them for each of you, depending on your needs and hopes, as we are all unique.
It all started in 2014 after my mum became increasingly unwell, and conventional medicine was making her worse, I decided to use my research skills in human medical genetics and law, to see if science could provide any solutions. To my surprise and delight, after finding amazing research about the gut microbiome, and how environmental triggers can cause chronic disease, mum became well, and her chronic disorders reversed. She no longer had acid reflux, her anxiety, IBS and depression disappeared, her fibromyalgia went and her thyroid antibodies reduced from hundreds to only tens. At the same time (after I also followed the five easy steps that are now in my book) I stopped getting asthma and frequent colds, in spite of being surrounded by people sneezing (I still got some, but not many, and they were much milder). We both felt so healthy! It seemed like a miracle and I wanted to share it with everyone, but I needed to convince my inner sceptical scientist that what happened was not just a coincidence.
So I spent the next eighteen months reading three thousand research papers joining the dots revealed in the many avenues of research that I followed and connected. I gradually began to realise that, for the first time in decades, we now have scientifically proven solutions for what were considered to be incurable debilitating diseases.
It was hard work and I felt that I was definitely inspired from somewhere to carry on when, some days, it felt quite overwhelming, but it led to me writing and self-publishing my book…..Healthy Body, Healthy Weight, Healthy Mind: In Five Easy Steps.
My book includes mindfulness, and since my original research I have expanded my learning into the field of Mindfulness Awareness Practice that is grounded in science. I found that we can achieve physical and mental health by opening up our minds to possibility and focal attention. Much of it is based on quantum mechanics and neuroscience (although can be explained simply!), and it is exciting to learn how we can be our own healer and therapist!
As well as my BSc (Hons) degree in Human Medical Genetics and GDL Grad dip Law, I am a trained Nutritionist, after passing a course certified by the Association for Nutrition; and I also have a Life Coaching Diploma and a Mindfulness Coach Diploma. I was recently trained in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction online by teachers at The Centre for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and society, UMass Medical School. I also have certificates In Interpersonal Neurobiology from Dr Dan Siegel, Psychiatrist and Neuroscientist, The Mindsight Institute.
I am a Level 2 Reiki practitioner, achieving a Certificate of lineage from my Reiki Master that goes back to Dr Mikai Usui.
Although I don’t practice this as a business, I am also an independent consultant for Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic, because of their products (what we use on our body affects our DNA) and their ethos (100% ethical rating).
