A little bit about me
My road to working in nutrition started when I was in my late 30s, and I was diagnosed with breast cancer. An operation followed with several rounds of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
Unfortunately, many women who have had chemotherapy enter into early menopause, and that included me. Initially, it was hard to understand what was going on and I put it down to my cancer recovery. But as time went by and when things didn’t get better, I realised that it was my hormones playing up. Literally, nothing made any sense. The doctors said that HRT wasn’t an option for me due to my cancer history, so I had to look elsewhere.
This is when I discovered nutrition. I decided to go back to school and after 3 years of intensive study, treating myself as a guinea pig along the way, I started to feel so much better.
Once I graduated I decided to put all my focus and experience to help other women who are going through the same thing; Women over 40 who feel exhausted and have no idea why or how to fix it.
