I am passionate About Gut Health & Hormones.
I am a qualified nutritionist and gut health expert. I aim to find the root cause of your health concerns and support you towards improved health. I want to be your health detective. My focus is on your vitality, nutrition and holistic health.
My training is grounded in ‘functional nutrition’ which means getting your body to function optimally. I love to specialise in optimum digestion, energy, ideal weight management and positive transitions through the various phases of your hormonal life.
I love investing my time in learning about gut health, menopause, digestive concerns (like IBS and constipation), the microbiome. This is a rapidly changing area of research.
I have a great passion for functional nutrition testing. I began studying nutrition decades ago due to my own health.
I qualified as a Registered Nutritionist in 2018. I am a member of the Federation of Nutritional Therapy Practitioners in the UK.
AREAS OF EXPERTISE
I have completed diplomas in the following areas:
I use many of these modalities and techniques in my programs and consultations.
I am always studying something new that will help my clients and I value continued learning.
In 2023 I published ‘Nourish Your Gut For A Positive Menopause’ which explores the links between gut health, diet, lifestyle and menopause, and provides practical advice on how to keep your gut healthy during this time in life.
My vision is for women to feel fantastic at every age. What if there was no hormone struggle? What if you had all the energy to live your ideal life, digesting all that life has to offer.
Nourish Your Gut For A Positive Menopause provides relevant information for women over 40 navigating gut and hormone challenges. An essential read for any woman looking to maintain good gut health during menopause and lead a healthier and more balanced life.
MY OWN HEALTH JOURNEY
I have had a massive health transformation that led me to study gut health and hormones.
By my 12th emergency visit to A&E I knew something had to change. I had over a dozen visits to hospital as an adult. I was heavily reliant on a big range of medication for asthma and allergies. I carried 3 types of puffers anti-histamines and an epipen for emergency adrenaline. The medications I was taking for pain, hay fever, allergies, asthma, and regular bouts of bronchitis were no longer working.
I never dreamed that all my problems were because of candida, parasites, blood flukes and Lyme disease.
Nutrition is how I transformed my life from a sickly, asthmatic, and highly allergic young woman to a healthy and thriving, medication free, fifty-year-old woman. I am fitter, stronger and healthier than I have ever been. I have been juicing for 39 years now. I have been medication free for 22 years.
I knew from that moment on I would dedicate my life to helping others.
My focus became helping others get to the root cause of unwanted health challenges.
I was awarded the total wellness UK nutritionist of the year 2019
In 2020 I was awarded a Gold winner Janey loves wellness industry awards for my gut health program.
I am a menopausal mum of two young boys, Jack (aged 15) and Roary (aged 12). I have been married for 22 years.
I am originally from Forster on the mid north coast of Australia. I now live in Minchinhampton in the Cotswolds, England with my family and dog Waru.
I love reading, continued learning, juicing, fermenting, dancing, yoga, growing vegetables, walking and travel.
