Hi I’m Michelle. I’m a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P) and a Vitality Coach.
I support you to identify the underlying causes of your health symptoms and stress issues.
Rebuilding your vitality on all levels.
I am trained in different nutritional and psychological techniques, these techniques have not only healed my own health issues, but have helped thousands of others too.
We all have a story that got us to where we are on our health journey. It usually starts at a young age. Childhood illnesses, emotional stress and trauma all play a part in your health as an adult.
I thought I was doing fine in life. Yes, I had what I call niggles throughout life and yes I did feel tired a lot, but not enough to really worry me. I had spent a third of my life living in exotic parts of the world, working in a good corporate career, alongside a passion for alternative healing.
In my late 30’s a major healing crisis literally floored me. I was completely burnt out, stress at work had pushed me over the edge. I visited over 6 medical specialists and was told my blood tests were normal. Yet, here I was unable to function in life’s basics (preparing food, getting up, food shopping, showering etc) never mind going to work.
Everything exhausted me. I literally went from 70% to zero overnight. I say 70% because my health imbalances hadn’t appeared overnight. I was not operating at my optimum but I hadn’t realised it.
Over a three year period I had so many health issues arise, my menstrual cycles were irregular I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) then I had Early Menopause or Early Ovarian Failure, which was devastating as I had not had children. I was so exhausted, I lost my job, my home, and I could no longer socialise with friends. I felt like a rug had been pulled from under me. I went through 3 years of healing and found through my functional diagnostic training that I had all sorts of imbalances going on. Hashimotos (autoimmune), parasites, bacteria, high viral load, Lyme Disease & Co-infections, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, Mould Illness and lots of physical symptoms.
All of these were uncovered like layers in my health journey, by balancing the body at each layer I was able to function again. On a physical level bringing the body back into balance, by using the priniciples of Functional Medicine through the work of FDN, helped me discover the underlying causes and gave me my energy back.
I also did a lot of emotional healing too, afterall its been scientifically proven that trauma is more likely to cause illness later in life. This helped me immensely with the grief, loneliness and anger that illness and loss brings. Sometimes we can get so identified with our illness it actually perpetuates it and prevents us from healing.
I now work with clients in all of the therapeutic systems that helped me with my health. I am fully trained and certified and I understand your desperation to get well and feel good. I believe in a truely integrated approach. I suppose you could call me a health detective with a difference, together we identify healing opportunities from the inside – out.
If you are not feeling like you are living a life of energy and vitality on all levels, then give me a call and we can discuss how I can support you.
I work with people over the phone and skype, or in person in various locations in Cheshire, UK.
