I am a qualified holistic health and nutrition guide, with specialization in holistic pain management and child nutrition. I have been taught to look at the body as a whole rather than just looking at symptoms. I also trained in Life Coaching, this specific course gave me the tools for listening and guiding my clients. My goal is to help and guide people towards restoring their optimum health through nutrition. I offer comprehensive consultations as well as a nutrition programme to help you addressing your health challenges. In addition to nutritional consultations, I also propose to help you build menu plannings, supplement guidance, help in food shopping – what to avoid and where to find the good stuff, reading labels – and how to sort, straighten and fill your kitchen cupboards with healthy food adapted to your tastes and life style.
I have been published on the Wealden time blog and I am a contributor at Orla Collective.
Getting there took me some time, being French and raised in the country side of France where I lived until my mid 20s, food and nutrition have always been part of my culture and of great interest to me. But it really all started more than 10 years ago…
I was at that time pregnant with my son and we started to talk about GMO in Europe. I just refused that my son would eat any of this food. I simply could not believe how it could be presented as safe with so little research…
The very same year, about 6 months after my son was born, my Mum was diagnosed with a form of leukemia. I started to read and make some research about the food and the relation with our health. We switched to organic food, most of it…
Fast forward some years. Someone send me the documentary Food Matters. I am not ready, I don’t watch it. Fast forward some months, I receive the documentary Hungry for Change. I am ready, ready for the change. I watch it. And again. And again. And again. And again, 100 times. I then watch Food Matters and do tons of research. I understand, that moving to organic food, I was not as smart as I thought as I was eating processed organic food…
It was time to add much more veggies and fruits in our diet. The easy way: juicing. So we started juicing… But the results I had hoped for were not there. I was well, but not great. Small health issues which were persistent… I read more, research more and understood that I needed more raw food and that wheat was not my friend… Because wheat has been so much processed, hybridized over the years, the wheat which is presented to us, even the organic one, is not “healthy”… The gluten content is really high and can cause trouble. So I started to experiment with different grain, such as Rye, Barley and Oat…
You will find here my recipes which make me, and my family feel good, as well as some information on some aliments which I find helpful in our day-to-day life.
