Reach your Optimum Health
Reach your Optimum Health
Hi, I'm Sarah, and until quite recently, I possibly felt just like you!
My health was, well, just NOT GREAT. Getting up every day and putting a smile on my face was really really challenging. I couldn't do all the things I used to LOVE. I felt half the person I used to be. Life was not easy.
My two young children were struggling too with a metabolic condition and lack of enzymes called CSID and leading the diagnosis of their rare condition literally squeezed every last bit of energy out of me. I was DRAINED.
Unknown to me the perfect epigenetic environment for my own genes had been created and I had a debilitating autoimmune assault. Exhaustion, Pain, Aches, cold and shivery. Flu that never went away. Legs that wouldn't move how I wanted them to. Memory problems. I felt just Errrgh.
I have now been able to improve my own symptoms and those of my children by implementing systematic nutritional and lifestyle practices to significantly reduce symptoms and introducing gentle, natural supplements to relieve pain and restore health and function.
Hit with a second rare diagnosis, Alpha -1 Antitrypsin Deficiency, which affects our whole family, I again had to delve into our unique nutrigenomics to gain a better understanding of the impact of food and nutrition on our bodies. A Gallbladder removal thrown into the pot in the middle of all that added its own challenges. But here I am today, still smiling and back to being full of beans, and eager to help YOU!
These experiences led me to realise that there was a huge void between Traditional Medicine and real people's needs. One that centres around understanding what goes in one end, comes out the other end and the impact of all of that in the middle bit (all 8.5 metres of it)....that is the small and large intestines.
Gut health is the vital key to healing chronic illness and it is one that is crucially ignored by Western medicine.
I have trained under one of the world's most eminent functional nutritionists to gain experience in a subject that I'm truly passionate about and it's one of the best things I have ever done!
Because it has led me here to meet and help people like you, people with unexplained chronic conditions which dramatically affect your daily lives.
I use a unique combination of intuitive detective work, carefully selected tests where necessary, and a thorough understanding of the complex combination of environmental, emotional, physiological and genetic factors of each patient in order to help to unravel often complex diagnoses that Traditional Medicine may have initially missed.
