Ice Ice Baby

Last month my husband and I attended a Wim Hof Method (WHM) workshop at the Roundhouse in London. I'd bought us the tickets but he really wasn't looking forward to it at all... He's used to me wanting to try out all manner of things though so he went along with it. And so I feel compelled to share our experience with you guys. As a naturopathic nutritionist, who’s [...]

Detoxing vs Cleansing

Happy 2019 everyone! I’m so excited to see another year in, and with it come the many new plans, goals and intention. Have you set some goals for 2019? Like many others, up-leveling my health is at the top of my list, and cleansing is my favourite way to begin the year. Hurray for January and a fresh start. Why should we detox or cleanse in the first place? T[...]

What are the best sources of Magnesium?

Magnesium seems to be one of the most talked about supplement at the moment so I thought I'd do a little research about it's history in supplementation.

I feel like I’ve finally arrived in my body, I feel happy and con[...]

Healing, Growth and Expansion

It never ceases to amaze me how incredible life's turns are. As you all know, over the last 5 years I've been on a huge self healing journey. The reason I call it a self healing rather than recovery from Rheumatoid Arthritis, is that is exactly what it is. Symptoms as diagnosed by the doctor are just the very surface of what is going on deep deep down inside us. In my[...]

The Queen Bee

After hearing about a local bee keeper, then eating a jar of her scrumptious honey, I simply had to meet the Queen Bee herself and learn more.  And so I came to meet Katharine Slater and her beautiful bees.  I've never been this close to a bee hive or really understood just how incredible these insects truly are, and so this experience was almost a spiritual one for [...]

10 Things I’ve Learned since being Diagnosed with a Chronic Disease

I'm sitting here thinking about how happy I am and how blessed I feel to have found my true calling in life. It's taken a long time for me to arrive here, in fact it's been 5 years since I first became 'ill'. Since then, I've learned a hell of a lot about life, health, the human body, emotional and spiritual wellbeing and fooooood. So I wanted to share with you so[...]

How to Eat Healthy While Camping

A weekend camping in the countryside or in the woods is a great opportunity to get into nature and forget about our everyday worries and stresses. It takes us back to slow living; fetching water, gathering wood and making fire, are actions which help bring us into the present moment, connecting out mind and body.  Simply being outdoors has been scientifically proven t[...]
