Holistic Nutrition & Dietetics, Juice Therapy and Raw Food Mastery


If you are feeling tired, sluggish, bloated, skin issues, constipated or sleep issues it is very likely that your diet is playing a large role in your situation.  

Let me ask you a few questions:

Do you have difficulty with bowel movements? 
Are you waking during the night? 
Is your urine ever dark in colour? 
Are you craving sugar all the time and never satisfied? 
Do you have inflamation, chronic pain, stress or constant tiredness?

What's Going On With Our Nutrition Nowadays Anyway?

The first factor is that most people are over fed, yet under nourished. With today's lifestyle and in our current environment, advertising and outer influences often lead us to grabbing food type products rather than actual food. 

With everyone's extremely busy lives convenience seems to prevail and unfortunately fast food often leads to refined sugar laden, chemically driven products that barely resemble real food and often have absolutely no life-force in it. 

This can cause actual damage when it comes to digesting “food” in our bodies and if prolonged can lead to many health issues. Would you like to learn how to make healthier alternatives to processed packaged “food” that are quick, easy, economical and not obscure?

A second factor is that two qualified people will tell you the exact opposite thing when it comes to nutrition -  and both be “right”! It can get so overwhelmingly confusing when it comes to knowing what to consume. How do you know who to believe? I can show you how to navigate this with ease!

A third factor is that each of our bodies is different and we have not been taught to listen to our own inner guidance and have always looked outside of ourselves for the answers, often to the detriment of our health and wellbeing. There are the usual culprits which we can learn to check with ourselves but then we need to learn observational tools to help ourselves for the unusual suspects!

Another huge factor that is at play these days is stress. If our bodies are not relaxed then we simply cannot digest our food. We simply need to be in rest and digest mode to reap the benefits of the nutrition we consume. Our retreats and therapies can greatly help with this.

Like exercise or yoga, nutrition is a practice and a lifestyle that becomes part of your daily behavioural needs to support your health and wellbeing. If you would like support with this then read on.

Nutrition at at Butterfly Cottage Retreat

As an intuitive energy worker I believe that the energy of our food is very important. I believe in a wholefoods personal 'tune-in' nutrition system that incorporates within it, an environmental GPS system:

How our food is Grown
How it is Prepared
How it is Served

At Butterfly Cottage Retreat we grow some of our own food and it is one of my many passions and joys in life. I love to forage and enjoy both cultivated and wild food from our garden. I really enjoy the creativity of cookery and preparing healthful food. It is also a constant endeavour to fill the food with extra love from chanting as I prepare and serve!.

This GPS system is then supported by a foundation of nutritional education and married to inner guidance which is developed with practice and observational techniques. Like everything it is an ongoing practice as our bodies change with our cycles and over time. With a system these changes can be easier to manage. The benefits are absolutely amazing as we learn what food is good for us and then we can have more energy to enjoy the rest of what life has to offer. With balanced energy and good health everything is easier!. We can sleep better, stress less, reduce bloating, fatigue, headaches, constipation and many other ailments so that we can lead a life with fewer (or no) symptoms from any chronic illness as we age. I have been on a continued journey with this since 2008 and have learned some amazingly helpful practices that I love to share.
