From “surviving to thriving” and how a period of burnout and hormone issues led me to my passion for helping others.
Hi I’m Emma, a registered Nutritionist and Associate Naturopath who supports women’s hormone and gut health, naturally…
Here’s my story…
How it all began
For over 20 years I worked in the corporate world, juggling priorities and trying to find a work-life balance. Eventually the stressful lifestyle, poor diet and burning the candle at both ends began to take its toll. Becoming very unwell, in 2016 I experienced complete burnout.
I was suffering from endless symptoms – chronic fatigue, blurred vision, dizziness, brain fog, weight gain, adrenal fatigue, palpitations, endometriosis and ovarian cysts to name a few! My hormones were all over the place! I’d wake feeling exhausted despite sleeping well, unable to get out of bed and often too dizzy to stand. Everyday life became a struggle and I was merely existing.
Following years of endless medical appointments, operations and tests, I continued to suffer. Complications meant I ended up in full-on ‘surgical menopause’ and developed some severe symptoms overnight as my body adapted to the massive shock! I was pain free but the hormone imbalances, dizziness and fatigue continued.
I was also diagnosed with Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a connective tissue and joint disorder, which had exacerbated my symptoms. I was told there was nothing further they could do to help me, I would just have to live like this. For me, this was not an option, there had to be some way of getting my health and life back.
My life today
So I took matters into my own hand and started a 3-year degree level diploma in Nutritional Therapy. As I started to connect the dots between my seemingly unrelated symptoms and ate the right foods to support, I slowly began to improve. I started to feel like myself again.
Fast forward to today, I’m also a Reiki Master Teacher and Holistic Health Coach to provide a whole body approach by supporting mind, body and soul. I run clinics in Bournemouth, Dorset and online so we can work together anywhere in the world. In my spare time I love exploring new places, long beach walks and am a bit of a foodie who enjoys rustling up new recipes!
I understand how you feel
Having been there myself, I understand how it feels to live with sub-optimal health. Hormone imbalances and poor gut health impact our entire body and can cause many symptoms which have a huge impact on our vitality and quality of life. I’ve experienced first-hand how you can restore your health through nutrition and lifestyle changes. My approach is holistic, focusing on finding the root cause of issues rather than just treating your symptoms.
Many women I speak to feel they have been let down or ‘fallen through the cracks’ of mainstream medicine and want to understand and learn how they can help themselves to restore their health. With the right information, tools, tips and my support to keep you moving towards your wellbeing goals, so much can be done to improve your overall health leaving you feeling revitalised and revived!
