My personal light-bulb moment…
I remember asking the breast cancer nurse how I could prepare myself for 6 months of chemotherapy. “It’s not the chemo that’s going to be your biggest challenge,” she told me, as she gently took my hand. “It’s changing your diet and lifestyle habits once treatment is over.”
I got the message loud and clear. It was time to consider if how I had been living was having a seriously negative impact on my health.
This was my light-bulb moment.
I left behind my career in the city to train as a nutritional chef at The College of Naturopathic Medicine. But I soon discovered that nutrition alone is not the golden ticket. How we move, the quality of our sleep, the glasses of wine, the toxins we are exposed to – even our thought patterns and emotional experiences; it all matters.
When I started to examine my life through the lens of my daily habits, everything changed.
