Do you know that your food choices are negatively impacting your health? Maybe you know you want to change but your not sure where to start?
Food is your foundation for health, providing your body with basic materials it needs to thrive. Your ability to sleep soundly, think clearly and make healthy lifestyle choices is dependent on the health of your body chemistry. Your body chemistry is made up of the food you eat and influenced by what you do, think, what you see and even what you smell!
Its not easy to change habits. This is where lifestyle medicine and the coaching within a program can make real, permanent & positive change to your well being.
The gentle but powerful system of herbal medicine is surely one of the oldest forms of healing. Herbalists work with medicines made from plants to improve the function of the body and mind. Foods provide vitamins and minerals, without which, we can't survive. However, herbs provide us with natural chemicals which aren't vital for our survival but including them can have far ranging health benefits.
Back to Balance 1 to 1 programmes combine your unique formula of medicinal herbs with a food and nutrition plan tailored to your health goals. To keep you on track there are regular coaching session that can take place in person or using zoom.
Programs can be designed around your health issues, two of my most popular programs are Back to Balance and Skin Glow Programme.
BACK TO BALANCE
12 WEEK PROGRAMME
Are you a busy working woman expected to be on top of everything ALL the time? Perhaps you've been looking after others but have entirely neglected your own well being? Are you struggling with hot flushes or have your hormones never been 'quite right' with PMT and painful periods?
In order to understand your health issues, goals and to work through and implement a food plan that's right for you we will need to work together over a period of time. A 'one off' appointment is unlikely to help you. 12 weeks of herbal medicine will give you the chance to feel the herbs working in your body.
Programmes integrate Medical Herbalism, Nutritional Therapy and Health Coaching to bring you back into balance.

Week 1 is an In-depth interview with you. I listen to you so I can understand your health challenges and we set your health goals. I take a detailed medical history and make an assessment so I can formulate your herbal medicine. With the information I’ve gathered in week 1 I outline your individual 12 week plan and recommend any tests that might be helpful.
In week 2 we work on optimising your nutrition through your food. I will have already been working behind the scenes assessing your diet. I won’t just give you lists of foods to include or exclude. You’ll have access to recipes for all your meals as well as some tools to help with planning. We look at what you might find challenging about altering your diet and what to do about it so you leave feeling motivated and confident of success.
If needed, supplements such as vitamins or minerals will be recommended and you will have access to a 25% discount from an online health store, The Natural Dispensary.
WEEK 3 & 4
In week 3 and 4 we reassess where you are with achieving your health goals. We focus on lifestyle habits that might be driving or triggering your symptoms. This will be individual to your story but can include poor sleep, managing stress, your relationship with food or even how you care for your skin. Whatever it is we work out a strategy to move you towards wellness.
You’ll be coached through challenges that have arisen between appointments. I know from experience that achieving better health is not always easy. If it was you wouldn’t be on this website so my role is to support and guide you through the process.
You’re now half way through the programme and your have a firm foundation and a set of tools for moving forward with your health. By now we will see what effect the herbs and dietary changes have had on your hormones and the way you feel. If necessary, the herbal formula and supplements can be changed to reflect the changes you’ve experienced over the past 6 weeks.
In week 8 we continue with the health coaching working on challenges you’re facing and how to continue moving you forward.
Week 12 is your final appointment. We can assess what achievements you’ve made and what steps you can take in the future to support your health. You might decide to continue with herbal medicine and/ or coaching support with a maintenance programme or you might decide you have the enough in your ‘tool’ box to manage your own health.

Spotty skin, dry skin, red skin tells tales on you about your crazy hormones, digestive difficulties, fatigue and lack of sleep, Delicious foods, healing herbs and lifestyle medicine can tackle troubled skin from the inside out. The right skin care product, facials and medical micro-needling work directly on the skin to support collagen production and healing.
