I have been a health professional since 1996. As with a lot of other health professionals, my passion for health and helping other people stemmed from a myriad of my own health problems that started during my teenage years. After fracturing my lumbar spine, being diagnosed with things like chronic fatigue syndrome and thoracic outlet syndrome, tearing cartilage in both knees and having constant digestive issues, I started questioning conventional health teachings. I deduced early on – We don’t catch these diseases, syndromes and disorders. We create them through not listening to our body and making lifestyle choices that negatively influence our immune system from doing its job. My perception on what constitutes a ‘healthy’ immune system is now totally different to what it used to be. My health experiences influenced my choice of life study and profession. After attaining a degree in Human Movement and Exercise Science and becoming a Personal Trainer, I discovered the teachings of Paul Chek, which have forever changed my perception on how the body works. Using Paul’s teachings and simplifying his approach to a ‘Primal Approach’ I has transformed the health of myself, my family and my clients. Check out my family blog entitled Primal Health to see what using a Primal approach can do for YOU! Let me challenge your conventional ideas on health, and you’ll be experiencing life like never before!
