As a young girl I grew up on a diary farm in New Zealand. I remember well my Dad painting the cowshed green to calm the cows down during their milking! Our family were so fortunate to have home-grown food. A large part of our diets were sourced right off our farm. I have recollections of my mother being busy all the time with food – whether it was growing, harvesting or preserving.
My first attempt at education was in an Accounting Degree. Hardly surprising I passed the first year but thought I would die of boredom, so off the cuff applied to nursing. I was accepted and this opened a whole world to me…literally, I was able to travel all over the globe as a Registered Nurse. Coming back to New Zealand every year or two to catch up with my family and friends.
But I soon became disillusioned as I realised that the holistic nature wasn’t what I had hoped for. It was then I started studying for my Diploma in Kinesiology, a complementary health therapy focused on energy balancing. This was great since it allowed a true holistic approach to healing.
It was then when I married a man who is my ‘rock’ – Sacha, and we started out family. We had two gorgeous boys Cruz and Rico. During this time I was realising my true inner power and that my calling was to reach out to help others. My questions on ‘how to help’ were answered after my boys were born. I realised that there is so much focus on the health of the baby, yet the health of the mother is largely overlooked. Mothers have such an important job – growing the baby, feeding the baby, then caring for the baby. It is one of the hardest things I have every been through. My passion is to provide support and help in that critical time.
Another answer came as my eldest was diagnosed with Aspergers and ADHD. My own challenges as a mother with a child on the autism spectrum with ADHD were almost overwhelming.
Managing a child is hard enough but with the added stress of his difficulties, I was forced to look outside of the box. My search found another way to help my son using nutrition and supplements, which is what we are doing – with great success.
