Diet & Nutrition
I'm all about balance and lasting change! Having worked as a Registered Nurse and Practice Sister I researched many 'popular' diets to support the needs of my patients . The more I learnt, the more I realised that we really cannot escape our holistic nature, and why should we! Simply looking at our diet does not bring balance or the lasting change we desire. I was introduced to the principles of Ayurveda which identifies not only our nutritional needs but how we can bring balance to ourselves through diet and the natural resources that are available to us all. When we talk about Ayurveda it can seem unusual to us as in the West as we don't generally use terms like your 'dosha' type. Although the terminology is unusual to us, Ayurveda is an Indian science of life and is an holistic approach to achieving balance and ultimately good health and well-being. You might think why look at an Indian science of life when we have a vast array of diets and health programmes at our fingertips in the West? Why? Because it makes so much sense and addresses our humanity at the emotional, mental and physical level. It joins the dots that other diets don't! It helps you to understand what YOU need to be healthy, happy and balanced.
So, why contact me for help? Because 'I'm real' and enjoy balance in life, including my diet. I still enjoy a a large slice of chocolate cake and a glass of wine if I feel like it. I'm free to eat a bag of chips on the beach with my kids. I also love cooking kitchari and healthy meals and soups. I'll assess where you're at, establish your 'dosha' and develop a plan that suits YOU. So, get in touch and I'll walk along side you, helping you to make the changes needed to bring the health benefits you need, balance and an increased sense of well-being.
