Holistic Nutrition & Dietetics, Juice Therapy, Ayurveda and Raw
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:
have difficulty with bowel movements? Are you
waking during the night? Is your
urine dark in colour? Are you
craving sugar all the time and never satisfied? Do you
have inflammation, chronic pain, stress or constant tiredness?
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
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 contain absolutely no life-force and minimal nutrients.
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 too 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 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.
As well as being a nutritionist and juice therapist, I have trained in Ayurveda and am energy therapist so 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 GrownHow it is PreparedHow 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 our personal needs 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 not only reduce symptoms but actually feel good and live a healthier and happier life. I have been on a continued journey with this
since 2008 and have learned some amazingly helpful practices that I love to
