I discovered Reflexology whilst going through a stressful period in my life and very much connected with this wonderful complimentary therapy. Looking for a new career I decided to train to become a reflexologist and started my own practice. Its an incredibly rewarding and enjoyable vocation.
Just over 4 years ago, my daughter, then age 15, came to me saying she had gone vegan. At first I was very concerned for her health, believing she would be missing key nutrients from her diet, and started to research extensively, looking for facts to back this up. However, what I discovered, completely changed my mind, as I learned how the human body is designed to digest and utilise plants far better than any animal products, and indeed, how consuming animal products can cause many of the life threatening diseases that we see so much of in the Western World today, with heart disease being our number one killer, followed by diabetes, cancer and more. During my research I also came across information on animal agriculture, the suffering it causes to billions of animals every year, and the devastating effect it has on our environment. All of these findings brought me to the conclusion that I too would go vegan, one of the best decisions I have ever made and I have my lovely daughter to thank for that. It wasn't long before I began to notice the health benefits, aches and pains I had accepted as 'normal' disappeared and digestion improved. A regular health check at age 56, showed my cholesterol levels and blood pressure were now normal, whereas before, at age 50, they had been higher and increasing over time. My weight stabilised and energy levels increased. During this time I kept researching, following inspiring plant-based doctors, health professionals and individuals, finally deciding to study plant-based nutrition so that I could help others improve their health with this natural, abundant and delicious way of eating.
I fully believe that managing our stress levels and choosing the right fuel for our body are both empowering and key to living a happy and healthy life.
