I have a keen interest and experience in gut health and the impact it has on mental health. I have been exploring & studying nutrition for over 25years.
I was first introduced to wild foods and foraging in London of all places and by an Iranian woman that cured herself of cancer. It was around this time I began a long journey of exploring the power of raw food. I recommend regular use of fermented foods and wild foods for both food and medicine in the daily diet. I am a firm believer in juicing and ‘eating for free’ to get super nutrient rich food into us without big costs. I believe food should be simple and enjoyable.
The more we complicate our food with fancy recipes the further away from real nutrition we get. I suggest that the fancy recipes be kept for parties and special occasions, after all most people want changes to be practical and to fit into a busy schedule.
Of course food is only one part of the equation in overall health. Emotions are a powerful play in our everyday lives and impact strongly on our health as eating under stress can completely suspend our digestive juices. Then we must question how much is being absorbed and assimilated. I recommended whole food supplementation if appropriate during a ‘hand holding period’ to support recovery.
My background in Yoga & Meditation has taught me to give equal importance to emotional states & lifestyle patterns when treating a patient. I use Iridology as a diagnostic tool and see it as a valuable addition in consultations. The iris is more unique than a finger print and can give valuable insight into a persons basic constitutional and emotional strengths and weaknesses.
