A bit about myself – I am a fully qualified Naturopathic Nutritional Advisor, Life Coach and Aromatherapist from Sutton Coldfield with a passion for living healthily and sharing my knowledge. After having Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for over 13 years, I understand the value of eating healthily and have changed my diet to meet the needs of my illness. I am now caffeine free, alcohol free, I eat a low-sugar diet, and I’m passionate about eating fresh, natural foods packed full of local and seasonal vegetables. I love to cook, make preserves, try new recipes and spend time on my allotment where I grow organic fruit and vegetables which I feed to my hungry husband and teenage son. I have a passion for walking and enjoying the great outdoors and being as active as I can.
