My aim, as always with Purehealth, is to make sure that people trying to get themselves well can access guidance, supplies and lab tests that will truly help.
After 30 years in natural medicine, 20 of those as a clinician, I am now focusing on writing down my knowledge and experience into books, guides and courses for you to use to help yourself get well. I feel crammed with knowledge and feel really strongly a need to communicate it more effectively for this next decade or so in the business.
My main goal is to provide easy-to-follow, motivational, ‘non-medically’ guidance (technical term!) that can truly help. With that in mind, I am concentrating on building this information website for you as well as writing books, health guides, articles, features, blog posts etc; basically, words for anywhere I think you’ll see it and it will help you. Courses may follow if I can work the techy bits out!
I’ve written almost 2000 blog posts, 70 factsheets in the A-Z and 17 ebooks and guides for you at the last count, published the Healing Plan with Curlew Books, placed several features in an array of different magazines, been a natural health columnist, agony aunt and much more besides. But there is always so much more to tell you; I can hardly keep up with changes in this field!.
Keep up to date by subscribing to the blog where I’ll let you know about all the new stuff as I get it done.
What you’ll find on this site
There’s tons here to help you. Do have a really good look round. The main bits are:
A-Z of Health
This is full of factsheets on various health subjects like adrenal fatigue, thyroid problems, IBS etc. I am constantly adding and updating them. They are there to help point you in the right direction, show you how to identify, test and treat conditions.
I have run a lab testing service for over a decade now so I know a LOT about testing! Whilst I focus on the writing and teaching side of things now, I have set up these Test pages so you can still learn what tests might help and give you an easy way of ordering them. Over time, I will update and add to these to help you interpret your test results too.
My own health ‘journey’ (bit X-Factor, that, sorry!)
On a personal health note, I suffered food ‘intolerance’ for many years causing IBS, mouth pain, migraine, chronic fatigue, restless legs, adrenal and hormonal dysfunction and chronic muscle pain to name the main ones! I was latterly left with very few foods and sensitivity to the world in general. Nice.
My ‘journey’ as a practitioner has been led by the need to find answers for my own conditions and I now have a ton of knowledge especially in food sensitivity, gluten illness (coeliac and non-coeliac gluten sensitivity, NCGS), fatigue (especially adrenal and thyroid) and gut issues (IBS, bloating, wind etc). Thankfully, I am now free from most of those conditions and at least know how to continue to manage and work on the remaining bits!
Does she know what she’s talking about..?
Good question. There is an awful lot of rubbish out there. I hope so by now, but check out my testimonials page for what others think. Lump in throat time.
Finding your way through the resources…
Use the search to find articles, research and tips from over 2000 blog posts and hunt through the Health A-Z here. I am bound to have written about it somewhere!
If you’re not sure where to begin, start with the core approaches that I’ve found work for the vast majority of people:
If you have a specific condition and want to read up about it, check the A-Z.
If you are feeling TATT (tired all the time), have some gut issues like wind and bloating, need to lose a bit of weight, especially on your tummy, and generally feel you need an MOT. Or, you want a foundational sort-out kind of approach, do the Gut Plan and the Belly Fat Plan (I must change that name; it’s not just for weight loss!). This was the approach we gave 90% of patients in-clinic, no matter what they came in with. It sorts out most of the core issues.
If you have a chronic illness or a complex condition, especially one of the syndromes like ME, chronic fatigue, multiple intolerance (to foods, chemicals etc), fibromyalgia, anxiety disorders, you need the TrulyGlutenFree Gluten Plan (in fact, not just about gluten, what am I like?!) and the Healing Plan.
There are other specific plans like the Adrenal Plan, Candida Plan and tons of other free and paid-for ebooks, but those two approaches are the most applicable to most people.
I hope that helps – if you look, I promise you’ll find some help here. I’m sorry I can’t take your case on currently; just nothing else ever gets done then and ultimately I help fewer people, which hurts my heart.
If you need a practitioner, check the BANT page here: find a local practitioner.
Good luck – you’ll get there, I’m sure!
