I have a strong passion for holistic health, whole foods, nutrition and herbal medicine.
When it comes to food, I believe going “back to basics” is a profound way to reclaim your power, health, consciousness and compassion. Eating with the intent to nourish your cells and provide your body with the fuel it needs to perform at its best, rather than eating mindlessly for taste and convenience.
I hope to inspire you to make a change, however big or small, as I believe we are all on our own unique path to health and consciousness. I would be honoured to assist you on your journey.

My objective in creating this website was to provide a resource that will guide people on their path to living a more compassionate, conscious, sustainable and healthy lifestyle.
I believe that we all have the intention to cause the least harm possible and to live in harmony with our health, the planet and the animals. However, the society that we have all grown up in has strayed far away from these fundamental core values.
My own health journey started around 5 years ago when I began studying naturopathy. I started studying naturopathy having never even seen a naturopath before, but I knew I wanted to do something that involved health and helping people. I first tried herbal medicine during my studies to assist with stress and sleepless nights, and have since been using my knowledge to heal my own rosacea.
In the last 5 years I have been connecting the dots between our lifestyle and diet and how it plays a huge role in disease initiation and progression and have also witnessed many of my own family members falling ill with chronic conditions possibly related to diet and lifestyle. These conditions included breast cancer, lung cancer, Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Parkinson’s disease, rosacea, Type 2 Diabetes and carotid artery disease. Witnessing my own family suffer from these horrible conditions further ignited my passion to learn about holistic health, nutrition and herbal medicine and how I could use these modalities to support people whilst also educating them on the importance of disease prevention. As the popular saying goes “genetics load the gun, but lifestyle pulls the trigger.”
The further along I got on this journey, the more aware I became of the health and environmental crisis the population is currently facing. This made me even more determined to use my website and social media platforms as a source of information and inspiration that people can use to implement beneficial changes into their own diet and lifestyle, so they too, can achieve optimal health and wellness in a way that also protects our collective home.
