I often think of how much time, effort and money we spend on our cars to have them run smoothly. We make sure that they’re serviced on a regular basis, with the hope that they stay on the road for as long as possible without breaking down.
I see the body as the carrier of our soul, and it is our responsibility to look after it. Nurture it, and service it on a regular basis with the aim of enjoying a healthy life without ‘breaking down’ too often. Enjoy your exciting journey towards health and happiness, and allow me to be your guide.

Male and Female Infertility
The latest statistic shows that 1 in 5 couples have difficulties conceiving.
Fertility reduces with age, and there is no doubt that stress, poor diet and lifestyle adversely affects the quality of sperm and eggs as well. Important is to look at both partners to make sure that the man’s sperm count and quality is healthy, and treat the woman for problems that might be linked with infertility, such as endometriosis, polycystic ovarian disease, fibroids, over/underactive thyroid, etc.
Often men’s bodies respond to their environment, and the effects of lifelong habits by creating symptoms that seem chaotic to start off with.
Preconception care is one of the most loving and responsible choices you and your partner can make together, not only for you and your child’s health, but also for future generations.
A woman’s health is strongly connected with her menstrual cycle, which is a complex process under tight control from a number of body systems, such as the endocrine system (pituitary gland, thyroid, adrenal gland, ovaries, etc.), and the nervous system.
Aromatic medicine is the therapeutic use of plant-derived essential oils to promote physical and psychological well-being.
Aromatic medicine is different to aromatherapy, as the practitioner is qualified to prescribe essential oils internally, unlike in Aromatherapy where essential oils are mainly used for topical application or inhalation.
Bach Flower Remedies
Bach Flower Remedies consist of a system of 38 plants and flower-based remedies which where discovered in the 1930s by Edward Bach. Each remedy aids a specific emotion and is prescribed either singularly or mixed together with other remedies to match your state of mind more accurately.
Herbal Medicine is the oldest and most widely used form of medicine in the world today. It is medicine made exclusively from plants, which has significant advantages for treating many health conditions.
A Medical Herbalist combines orthodox medical knowledge and skills with the scientific understanding of plant medicines. Remedies are selected to stimulate or strengthen the body’s normal functions, and so help the body heal itself.
Kinesiology is the use of muscle testing or muscle monitoring to identify imbalances in the body. It also recognises that there are flows of energy (Meridian) within the body that relate not only to the muscles but to every tissue and organ that make the body a living, feeling being. These energy flows can be evaluated by testing the function of the muscles, which in turn reflect the body’s overall state of structural, chemical, or emotional balance. In this way Kinesiology taps into energies that the more conventional modalities overlook. The aim is to use corrections and implement changes that allow the body to heal itself.
“We are what we eat” is a very popular quote, and I’d like to change that into “We are what we absorb”.
Your health is determined by what nutrients (vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates and fats) your body is able to absorb and utilize. Many food products contain poor levels of quality nutrients, which is due to processing, storage and ultimately soil quality.
During the first consultation, I assess the patient by taking a detailed medical history, including emotional state, lifestyle, diet, and any other underlying causes. If appropriate, you may also be advised to see a doctor or other qualified practitioner.
