Hi butterfly beauty, I'm so glad you're here. I have the solution you've been looking for.
I work with women who are ready to transform their thyroid health by finding and addressing the root causes of their thyroid condition through functional testing, nutrition, and lifestyle medicine, so they can be free from debilitating symptoms and finally live the life they’ve been longing for, once and for all.
You’re in the right place for help if you have a diagnosed thyroid condition - Hypothyroidism, Hyperthyroidism, autoimmune Hashimoto's or Graves' - have nodules or a goitre, had your thyroid removed, or suspect that you may have a thyroid condition from your myriad of symptoms. I've got you!
Through my holistic approach, delivered through my Thyroid TLC Programs, I educate, empower and support you every step of the way on your healing journey to take back control of your own thyroid health and wellbeing.
I’ve successfully restored my own health and put my Hashimoto’s into remission and I want the same for you. Oh and I recently sailed through my menopause too.
Let's give your thyroid some TLC and get your brain, body and life back!
A Pill for Every Ill ?
Restoring thyroid health is not as easy as taking a pill – as you may well know!
The replacement thyroid hormone ‘pill’, Levothyroxine, prescribed by your doctor to treat an underactive thyroid (i.e. low thyroid hormone levels in the blood), may alleviate some symptoms and initially can make you feel better. But as you've probably found, not all of the myriad of symptoms go away, and chances are some come back over time, some become worse and you may even be experiencing a bunch more!
Levo as I affectionately call it, is just a sticking plaster to help manage symptoms. It increases the supply of the inactive thyroid hormone (T4), in the hope that the body is able to convert it into the active form (T3) and then get it into your cells, thereby alleviating symptoms. Whilst it's necessary for most as it helps to increase low T4 thyroid hormone levels...
- it doesn't address WHY your levels are low in the first place i.e. the root causes - most often this isn't an issue with the thyroid itself!
- it CAN'T help your body increase hormone levels naturally
- it CAN'T help your body convert more inactive T4 into active T3
- it CAN'T help get more active T3 into your cells to alleviate your symptoms.
To boost your metabolism, lose the excess weight, to feel warm again, banish brain fog, sort those digestive issues and improve your mood, understanding why your thyroid is troublesome in the first place, is absolutely key to improving your health and reducing your symptoms.
There is no quick fix or one single solution (i.e. a pill for every ill).
It takes determination and dedication on your part to want to get healthy and rid of your symptoms. My Thyroid TLC Programs help find and address your own personal root causes for your thyroid condition. Then your personalised Thyroid TLC Transformation Plan supports you with tailored nutrition, targeted supplements and lifestyle medicine to also improve quality sleep, restorative exercise, stress resilience etc., for a truly holistic approach for your thyroid and whole body health. I'm also with you every step of the way, keeping you accountable to achieve your heath goals.
So Who Am I?
I put my Hashimoto's disease into remission through giving my body the tools it needed to harness its own restorative abilities. This approach was transformative for me. You can read how on My Journey So Far. It also ignited and fuelled my passion to become a qualified Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist dedicated to helping others suffering with thyroid, hormone and digestive health conditions, to achieve the same transformational and life changing results. I've also navigated through my own menopause and can help you through your perimenopause and menopause too.
Since gaining my Diploma in Holistic Naturopathic Nutritional Practice (CNN Dip.HNNP) from the College of Naturopathic Nutrition, I've also qualified as a Health Coach and taken a number of additional CPD functional medicine and functional nutrition training and certification courses into Thyroid Health, Digestive Health including GERD, IBS & SIBO, Female Hormone Health including Perimenopause & Menopause Imbalances, Autoimmunity, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME, Adrenal Health and Stress Resilience, Liver Health, Detox & NAFLD, Psoriasis, Weight Management, Mycotherapy (medicinal mushrooms) and Drug & Nutrient Interactions. These increase the breadth and depth of support I can provide as we know Thyroid conditions effect every part of the body! and I continue with CPD training every month.
I often recommend functional testing in my Thyroid TLC Programs to help identify the root causes of your thyroid condition, using the most comprehensive tests on the market for Stool, DUTCH Hormones, Genomics (Genetics) and Blood including advanced Thyroid panels.
I am also a member of the The Thyroid Collective, the Naturopathic Nutrition Association (NNA) and regulated by the General Naturopathic Council (GNC). I also have a 1st Class BA Honours degree.
On a Personal Note ...
And when I’m not transforming people’s health and running my business, I’m kept busy with my 2 beautiful teenage daughters and our Cockapoo, running (well more like a gentle jog & chatting), going to Clubbercise classes (I’m totally an 80’s throwback to my youth and love 90's ‘acid’ house), catching up with friends over coffee and cake (gluten and dairy free of course!), getting out in nature, chilling in sunny climes and geeking out on the latest developments in thyroid health and wellness.
If you’re dying to know more, here are a few things I don’t normally throw into a conversation!
- I love, love, love space and superhero sci-fi TV and movies (totally my guilty pleasure)
- I eat all the outside chocolate off my favourite truffles before devouring the middle (yummy Booja Booja)
- I can tie a knot in a length of spaghetti in my mouth with my tongue! (not sure if I should be proud of that one?!)
