SO THIS IS HOW IT STARTED...
Hello friend !
I am a Gut Health Nutritional Therapist currently living in London. I like to call myself a citizen of the world. I grew up in Brussels, Belgium and after uni, I moved to Dublin where I spent 7 years working for Tech companies. Then I moved to London to start my new career.
I fell into the world of nutrition when I was 12 after being diagnosed with asthma. I started taking pills on a daily basis. Instead of getting better, things got worse over time. Deep down, I knew popping more pills every year would not solve my problem. I knew I had to address the root cause of my asthma. One day, I watched a life-changing documentary called Crazy Sexy Cancer portraying a young American actress diagnosed with an advanced stage of cancer. She documented her journey across America looking for a miraculous cure. After months of traveling, she finally found peace and happiness through whole foods and mindfulness. That day marked the beginning of my own journey towards optimum health. Apart from asthma, I also suffered from other chronic conditions such as adrenal fatigue, candida overgrowth, hyperhidrosis, panic attacks and had my appendix removed. Being curious by nature and not totally convinced by traditional medicine, I embarked on a lifelong adventure of self-experimentation. I was determined to learn to listen to my body, make peace with my symptoms and find a more natural way to reduce inflammation in my body. I learned how the gut is connected to all the body systems so that's where I decided to focus my efforts. Thankfully asthma, candida overgrowth and panic attacks all belong to the past now.
My health journey led me to quit my job and qualify as a Nutritional Therapist at The Institute of Health Sciences a few years ago with a specialisation in Gut health. I am also trained in Functional Medicine at the Institute of Applied Functional Medicine. I'm immensely grateful for my corporate experience though as it has helped me set up my practice, and it has also helped me identify the main health challenges that professionals face today in the workplace. So far, I have worked with more than 100 people all over the world.
