Today, I practise full-time as a Nutritional Medicine Specialist. I help people get to the bottom of their health puzzle by developing and tweaking treatment plans that incorporate their health and life as a whole, while respecting and working with each client as an individual.
I have a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional Medicine), and I am a qualified yoga teacher and yoga therapist. Along with neurolinguistic programming (NLP), I studied psycho-neuro-immunology (PNI) and psycho-neuroendocrinology (PNE) to understand how our thinking creates and changes brain chemistry, affecting our hormones, immune system, digestive system, and in turn, our health as a WHOLE.
In July 2016, I qualified with L.A. based neurologist Dr Dale Bredesen, author of The End of Alzheimer’s and developer of the ReCODE (Reversing Cognitive Decline) and MEND (Metabolic Enhancement in NeuroDegenerative Disease) programs. This qualification makes me one of the first in Australia able to use this method to tackle and reverse — or prevent — the onset of early Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
In October 2017, I began annual training with Integrative Medicine for Mental Health, and then Brain Health Coaching with Dr Daniel Amen of the Amen Clinics, both in the USA. I began my certification with the Institute of Functional Medicine early 2018 and continue these studies today.
