My Approach

My holistic integrated approach comes from my own personal and professional experience, bringing together research around modern science, the body-mind connection, the food we eat, natural homeopathic remedies and spirituality to treat each individual as a whole person.
Over the years, I have come to question our modern approach to medicine. Modern medicine can be life-saving; yet it is often unsuccessful in addressing the root causes of diseases – offering only superficial and limited satisfaction through symptom treatment without taking the body-mind connection, our life experiences, the foods we eat or overall lifestyle into consideration.
 
My approach is very much focused on both body and mind, as I believe they are not only connected, but they are one. Scientific studies, which show a correlation between emotional stress during childhood and adult onset of disease, demonstrate this perfectly.
 
Emotional stress is hugely important when it comes to overall health as when our central stress response system (the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis) is out of balance, this can lead to acute and chronic disease.
Our past and present experiences, who we individually are and what we think and feel, are intricately connected to our physical health.
 
My scientific training involving conducting intense biographic work on many patients, has also shown me just how important food is when it comes to our health.  
 
From studying what we eat, how we eat and where our modern food is coming from, I have realised that there has been a big change from growing organic nutrient dense foods on small family farms where soils are rich in minerals, to mass farming on depleted soils.
 
There has also been a reduction in the amount of seasonal and fermented foods we eat and how much physical activity we do. This has resulted in a lack of a healthy gut microbiome for many of us.
The gut is said to be the body’s ‘second brain’ as it contains just as many neurotransmitters as the human brain. A decline in healthy gut bacteria or flora can lead to a number of health problems as the gut microbiome is key in immunity.

It is the body’s primary antibody and the first line of defence in response to antigens/pathogens in the GI tract and respiratory tract. It also has a key role in cholesterol metabolisation, hormone regulation, detoxification and mental wellbeing, amongst many other bodily functions. 

Foods affect us on a cellular level, they affect our energy, moods and organ health. I have come to the conclusion that the foods we eat make up a big part of who we are and even how we feel and think.

Studying homeopathy was a natural progression for me, as it fits in nicely with the rest of my approach. It considers the biography of each person, as well as their emotions and physical complaints to create a deep understanding of what needs to be healed in order to restore balance, heal, grow and flourish.
