online integrative gut and skin consultations
Have the feeling you or your wee one may be reacting to something? A recent allergy diagnosis left you fearful and overwhelmed - or itchy or weeping skin that's not responding to the creams? For many, it may just be navigating gut healing is feeling overly challenging, and you're not sure what you're missing or what to try next.
Poor gut health doesn't just show up in our digestive systems as bloating, constipation, colic or reflux. It's also connected to our skin, immunity, respiratory systems and even weight, sleep and moods. Symptoms usually dismissed as 'normal' but feel anything but. We google them, join Facebook groups, restrict our diets, slather in coconut oil, grab any probiotic and buy the most natural looking detergent at the supermarket, all in the name of "gut health" and yet, the symptoms don't resolve and we don't really quite understand why.
The good news is that with the right support and holistic philosophies tailored to you, symptoms can be resolved at the root cause and families can thrive. As an Integrative Nutrition Coach who specialises in eczema, allergies and gut health, I have been independently researching and writing about real food, gut health and family wellness since 2011, and can help you head in a whole new direction.
Our bodies are smart with their attempts to get our attention but sometimes we don't know how to translate the signals. During our sessions which I run exclusively online via Zoom for both our convenience, we'll review what you've tried, build your knowledge and give you a safe space to ask the questions you need. You will get both emotional and practical support with down to earth suggestions, that help you put the puzzle pieces together and get to the bottom of your symptoms. Whether you're starting from scratch or just stuck and needing some clarity and direction, I'm here to help. As a bonus all initial sessions will receive a copy of my recipe ebook so you can get started with great food almost immediately. Sound good? Let's do this.
I don't sell any products directly (and am staunchly against MLM and 'quick fixes') and my focus is on empowering and educating you to facilitate progress from your own home in a way that feels achievable for you. During our initial appointment, we discuss your situation and I gather as much relevant information as possible to develop a personalised integrative nutrition plan with high quality tailored strategies and recommendations for you to consider, including suggestions for appropriate testing, diagnostic tools and referrals. While my goal is to offer more rather than less and I have a history of facilitating remarkable results, it is important to understand the body often needs time to recover at it's own safe pace. The suggestions I make are specifically tailored to you and are not designed to be with shared with others.
