HEAL THY SELF

HUNDREDS OF YEARS AGO HIPPOCRATES SET THE DIAL IN MOTION — "LET FOOD BE THY MEDICINE AND MEDICINE BE THY FOOD."



At what point did we become so disconnected with what goes into our mouth? We now have to use a diagram to teach our children where the meat on their dinner table comes from, because, when did they ever take in the true experience of a functioning farm?

I have lived and worked at Taranaki Farm in Australia. This farm, ran by Ben Falloon, is based on the same principals Joel Salatin uses, and has written several books about in raising livestock using holistic management methods of animal husbandry, free of harmful chemicals, on his Polyface Farm in Swoope, Virginia. 

​I'm sure you have heard rumours of our food being covered in pesticides, our animals pumped full of hormones, and our lands so demineralised that the nutrient benefits of our food is laking, such that, taking vitamins from your local chemist are a necessity in this day and age. 

I personally started with a 30 day detox; removing dairy and grains from my diet, and ensuring the food purchased was for quality not quantity. Having researched the literature far and wide on healthy eating, I'm here to guide you through a plan that works for you (and your family).

SO MANY OF MY CLIENTS, WHEN THEY FIRST COME TO SEE ME, KNOW THIS ONE SIMPLE RULE, BUT TAKING ACTION CAN BE DIFFICULT.



It requires planning. Now, I know we all want to think that a spontaneous life is the best way to live (surely more fun must come from this...). But, what if we consider what we need to have fun: energy, resilience, a healthy body, and number one, time! Remember that work-life balance people are raving about... 

Well, I'm here to tell you, yes, it takes time and effort to plan a life that enables you to reach your targets. I guess, the alternative of being that couch potato, or a hunched back desk jockey may be appealing to some, but if you're on a blank page with me, and you're ready to make it colorful, then let's work together.
