Welcome to Exploring Wellness! It’s a pleasure to meet you.
My mission is to help you to restore your health and live your best life!
I suffered for decade’s from Irritable Bowel Syndrome, eczema, anxiety, food intolerance and hormone issues, which set me on the path to investigate how I could heal myself. I’ve tried almost everything, and understand the difficulties in managing digestive issues that impact all areas of your life. Getting the right help improved my health and made me want to help others.
I have always been interested in health and science. I have a Bachelor of Science from Auckland University and have had a long-term fascination with health and well-being from both a scientific and holistic angle. I then moved into the corporate IT world, lived in London and Sydney. I was living a frantic lifestyle and subsequently became burnt out! I had anxiety, reflux, heartburn, bloating, abdominal cramps and nausea. I spent years with doctors and in hospitals getting test after test with no improvement.
I have worked my way through the world of wellness looking for solutions. I have attended yoga and women-only retreats in Bali. Investigated Buddhism, meditation, mindfulness and western psychology. Got creative at cooking schools in Bali, Vietnam, Sydney and Italy. I have worked with multiple experienced western and traditional medical health practitioners, which culminated in me trying Failsafe protocols; an elimination diet; following GAPS, gluten free, dairy free and paleo diets; using western drug therapy and finally training at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. My latest experiences getting support from an Integrative doctor have helped me even further, with ALCAT testing to diagnose food sensitivities in a much more targeted way. I have also completed the Holistic Nutrition Lab digestive intensive, and I am now studying the fascinating subject of nutritional medicine.
Wishing you vibrant health
