Ever since I can remember I've been fascinated with how the body works and all things health-related. Running alongside this interest has been my deep need to know what makes us 'work' at a level beyond the physical body. What stimulates our desires, what motivates us to grow and develop emotionally, and what touches our soul? I've sought answers to these big questions through my own self-discovery and through my work.
My interest in health has settled around the subject of nutrition and I've spent my career advising people with cancer and other serious diseases how to follow a diet and lifestyle that supports physical health and emotional wellbeing. What touches me about supporting those with serious disease is the strength often shown and how, when there is no place to run, many people find the courage to face up to those things that aren't working in their life. The transformations I have witnessed in many of my clients, not only with their health but also their level of fulfilment has been outstanding at times and incredibly inspiring. I hope to take what I've learnt from these people and help others see how positive lifestyle changes can be transforming on a deep level and lead to a life of greater health and happiness.

In recent months sugar has been attacked relentlessly by the media. Articles, TV programmes, Youtube interviews and books have all appeared sending out the clear message that sugar is bad for health. And bad in a big way, words such as ‘addictive’, ‘evil’ and ‘toxic’ have featured in many of the headlines. It was the work of Robert Lustig, Professor of Clinical Paediatrics at the University of California, and the publication of his book, Fat Chance, that prompted a ...
As explained in my previous post I’m taking a bit of time and blog space to express to you my deepest beliefs around health and healing at the moment.

It can be made much more so, however, with a team of like-minded supporters to encourage and motivate, be they friends or family, ...
