Sensitive

If you’ve ever been called ‘too sensitive and emotional’.

For much of my life, I was ashamed of my sensitive and introverted nature.  I was easily affected by things; I didn’t seem to be able to ‘cope’ with as much as other people around me could; I often felt a sense of sadness and disconnection in normal everyday situations; and I wore my heart 100% on my sleeve, unable...

Why you need to be ok with 'letting people down'

Why you need to be ok with ‘letting people down’.

Do you constantly bend yourself backwards in order to ‘not let anyone down’? Like many women, I spent most of my life as a rather chronic people pleaser. There were two things that used to majorly hold me back from wellness and soul fulfilment: 1. My fear of ‘letting people down’ 2. My fear of people ‘not liking me’ I...

Why you need to love your liver

Why you need to love your liver.

Why you need to love your liver. If you’re working on getting your hormones back to a healthy, happy, balanced state – chances are, you may need to give your amazing liver a little (or a lot!) of love. The liver truly is a powerhouse organ within the body. It is constantly keeping us alive by filtering out and eliminating...

How to look after yourself when you’re a sensitive and introverted soul.

As a classic introvert (and rather sensitive soul), I find the chaos and excessive busyness of modern life somewhat ridiculous – and perhaps you can relate. Trying to be truly well in a hyper-connected world, is no easy feat. Most of us are literally available – in some way – 24/7 (and deep down, we feel guilty when we’re not)....

Women and martyrdom (and why we need to stop).

Women have long since derived satisfaction from doing things for others. We feel pleased when we please others. We like to be selfless. But in the pursuit of making sure every single person is ok, we have to be very careful not to become stuck in the grips of martyrdom and resentment. Because, this happens very easily, and it takes...

Coming off the pill? Here’s what you should know.

Lately I’ve had an abundance of women, from all walks of my life, talk to me about coming off the oral contraceptive pill. As a naturopath, this please me VERY much, because I know how much life can change when you move away from synthetic hormones and allow your own, natural hormones to kick back in, and naturally balance. HOWEVER,...

Your meltdown is just a message.

Have you had a meltdown recently? If so … you’re not alone. I, too, have been going through a phase in my life where there have been many-a-meltdown. Luckily for me, I have come to learn over the years that a meltdown is just a message.  It’s a message from my self – my inner self / body / mind /...

If you’re feeling tired and uninspired.

Today (the 8th January) is a day that many people go back to work after the New Year break.  Many people feel deflated after their holidays; perhaps they haven’t entered 2018 feeling quite as vibrant as they wished, perhaps they don’t feel particularly jazzed about going back to work, or perhaps they just feel a bit lost – with a...

Digestive difficulties

A different take on digestive difficulties.

Digestive difficulties are ALL too common for most people – but they shouldn’t be.  Our tendency is to immediately think, ‘food – I must be allergic / intolerant to something’. (More and more people are requesting food allergy testing from me for this reason). And, while this certainly can be the case, it’s definitely not the ‘only’ factor that needs...

Learning to (finally) acknowledge yourself.

Do you feel resentful about how much you do for other people?  Lately, so many women (from both my work and personal life), have shared with me that they feel unacknowledged, uncared for, and as though no one is really taking much notice of them (even when they are taking SO much notice of everybody else). I have definitely been...
