To truly create transformation of our health, we need to safely, compassionately and curiously invite all parts of ourselves to the table.  Health, after all, is far more than the absence of disease, it is a state of mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.

I am thrilled that with my team, we can bring you a whole, well rounded, integrative, supported and comprehensive health care (human care) to bring great shifts into your life – physically, mentally and emotionally.

We marry together from ancient traditions and modern science.  Modern science is gradually starting to be able to “prove” (in our modern definition of it) what so much traditional wisdom has taught for millennia.

Two core, central aspects to our health are gut health, and HPATG Axis function – the hormone regulatory system of our body, driven by our nervous system.   The longer I spend in clinical practice, and in practicing being human myself, the more I see the profound effects of perception and stress – seen and unseen – on our physical and mental health.  Sounds simple, and yet it is so very profound.

Interwoven with this nerve and hormone symphony is our gut health.  A zone where there are more nerves than there are in the brain and where microbial life outnumbers our human cells by 10:1.

The interplays between microbial DNA with our DNA, the nervous system of the gut and the brain, and the intimate intricacies of the immune system in gut and brain function all weave together to provide either a symphony or cacophony of function for our entire body and mind.

The team here at Well Embodied are here to help you tune your experience of your health (and your Self) into one of a symphony.  TO achieve this we help you find the best solutions for you personally.

We like to test not guess, so where warranted, pathology tests and wellness screenings will be advised.  We’ll talk food and approach it as a joyous adventure, fostering curiosity and inspiration rather than relying on discipline and motivation.

We focus on what to bring IN to your life.  While we like to focus on the foundations of healthy diet and lifestyle, we also use herbs and supplements if and when needed.  Nature provides a remarkable farmacy for us to utilise, and we use these gifts with great reverence and respect.  If you need practical one on one support implementing changes into your lifestyle, we have you covered there too with compassionate and supportive health coaching.
