"After overcoming my own health struggles, I wanted to help others achieve something amazing... get their life back and empower them to look after their own health."
For years and years, Sarah battled fatigue, brain fog, dizziness, bloating and other digestive issues as well as PMS and a frustrating sensitivity to the cold.
She lost her eyebrows, looked pale, was often bloated and didn't have the energy to play sports. She had symptoms that she didn’t even understand and couldn’t often see in other people.
Finally in 2016, she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
At first, it was a shock for her.
But over time Sarah came to accept what she couldn't change and turn her focus on what she can change. So instead of continuing to feel down, she decided to turn this experience into something positive...
She began studying nutrition and started to understand her own condition. Using the functional medicine model and testing, she dug for the root causes of her symptoms and discovered what was burdening her immune system. It helped her to make long-term lifestyle adjustments which had a huge impact on her health and her life.
From there, she improved her diet, exercise, sleep and response to stress. She made big changes to her lifestyle and environment - particularly who and what she gives her time to. And used other holistic and complementary therapies to rebalance her mind and body.
These changes had a huge impact on her energy, vitality, mental health and disease markers. Her eyebrows grew back, her anxiety, PMS, bloating and digestive issues disappeared and she had the confidence and happiness that she had always wanted. She began to glow again.
To Sarah, diet, lifestyle and our environment is all our body has and all it needs in order to function at its best. If we can optimise these and give our body what it needs then we can live well and reduce the occurrences of diseases.
It was important for her to manage her autoimmune disease, not only so she could end her own struggles and enjoy being the best version of herself... But also so she could know how to support others to do the same.
