I have always loved food! Eating delicious meals around the table with family are among some of my fondest memories growing up. I also always thought that I could eat anything, because I didn’t put on weight. However, as a teenager I began to suffer from anaemia and began a cycle of iron and B Complex supplements. With hindsight (twenty-twenty vision of course) I now understand, that as over the years my fatigue and brain fog became worse, the supplements were merely patching over symptoms, as opposed to treating an underlying cause.
As a result of other health issues which arose, I finally discovered that I had Coeliac disease and my digestive tract was in very poor shape. However, when I changed my diet, I began to feel more awake and the world became more colourful.
I became passionate not only about food, but about nutrition. My own health issues have included sub-fertility, endometriosis and digestive tract issues. This means that I have also learned through my own experience, about dealing with hormonal issues, gut health and auto-immunity.
However, I wanted to learn more about the science behind all of this information, for the sake of my own health and for those closest to me.
I researched colleges and decided that CNM Dublin was my place to learn.
I began to understand that our health and quality of life lies primarily in our own hands and so, in the relationship between our hands and our mouth!
Everything that we put into our mouth is either feeding or fighting disease. It is actually that simple. However, it is not always that simple in reality for many people, for a multitude of reasons.
So, my passion these days is empowering others to navigate their way towards making better choices for their health. My hope is to pass on my enthusiasm for whole foods, communicate in a way that is practical and listen to clients to understand what changes they can make to interrupt their cycles of poor health. I would be privileged to support you on your journey to better health.
