My late mother said that she had a headache one day, woke up the next day and had gone through menopause! Based on my own experience, I sense that may have been a stretch from the truth!

However, what I have learned is that some women do indeed sail through menopause and others struggle with a myriad of health challenges.

I personally started peri-menopause early, at age 43, and a stressful lifestyle meant I experienced extreme hot flushes, erratic sleep patterns, weight gain, low energy and a corresponding low mood.

I was studying throughout my challenging menopause years. I believe that stress trumps everything. I am a strong convert to the healing modalities of breathwork, mindful meditation and yoga.

I also know that this transition stage of a woman’s life puts a spotlight on any underlying health issues.

I am fascinated by the scientifically proven medicinal and healing properties of plants, which has led me to pursue studies in nourishing wholefoods and train as a Whole and Natural Foods Chef. I also had a rewarding year qualifying as a Holistic Health Coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (New York). Further studies at Endeavour College compounded my desire to share my passion with you through a curation of wellbeing products designed to enhance and extend your health journey.

Our bodies have an innate healing mechanism and given the right conditions, they will thrive.

I have created a platform created to share what I learnt along the way and provide you with the health and wellbeing products I wish I had at the start of my menopause journey!

Through the curation of products that respect your health goals and bio-individuality, my unique approach will:

  • Result in no more need for an arvo nap – you will have sustained energy!
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Create vitality and positivity
  • Support healthy ageing
  • Prepare you for and support your menopause journey
  • Create and support a diverse and robust gut microbiome
  • Build a strong immune system; and
  • Encourage healthy detoxification

I want to change the narrative about how society perceives women in mid life. I would like women to take a leaf out of Japanese culture where their concept of konenki describes menopause as “renewal years.”
