These combined events over a short number of years had a defining impact on me … a light bulb moment, clearly there was something was very, very wrong.
I began questioning how we found ourselves in this situation, but more importantly what needed to change? Was it the conventional wisdom of our medical and dietary advice, the way we lived our life or a combination of both?
Being a curious little soul, I had to seek out the how, why, what, the cause and effect of living a healthy lifestyle physically, emotionally and mentally.
The extensive research began … I started educating myself, attending every seminar, workshop and lecture I could, I listened to podcasts, bought books and read everything I could lay my hands on. My curiosity and the knowledge gained earned me the confidence to ask searching questions and engage in robust but rewarding conversations with professionals across this spectrum.
I also learned the importance of seeking to understand this knowledge at a deeper level, whilst keeping a balanced and open mind.
