Susan ‘s recovery to health involved nourishment on many levels. She had suffered from “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome” or PTSD. In a nutshell, her immune system had taken a dive. This was triggered by becoming emotionally overwhelmed or stressed by unresolved past life events and a course of antibiotics for tonsillitis. During the time she had fallen ill, she had to give up her work, sell her house, and she was off work then, for around 4 years.
Susan has had many years experience with iridology, naturopathy, and nutrition.

Cleansing your inner pipes is like adding real health insurance
Stillness, meditation and connecting to yourself
Susan began with Chinese Medicine which involved bitter Chinese Herbs and acupuncture. This helped to rebalance the hormonal system. During this time Susan discovered meditation and began to meditate daily which helped to reduce the anxiety.
In 2006 Susan then came across Iridologist, John Andrews, with whom she trained with, and after a consultation, he informed Susan to eat organic rawfood; chew her food well; and follow her intuition. Susan was told that her main physiological imbalance was dysbiosis and chronic hypoglycemia. And anyone who has a low immune system needs to avoid all processed sugar. Sugar has a huge effect on your immune system, the neutrophils (white blood cells) are not able to function with the action of phagocytosis (cell eating) by up to 5 hours. 80% of your immunity is in the GUT which means having a healthy gut microbiome
Susan was fortunate enough to attend many beautifully led plant medicine ceremonies and then in 2014 Susan go to visit the Brazilian Amazon jungle and spent time with the Huni Kuin tribe where she learned a lot about life . Later on in 2018 Susan once again got to visit the Amazon, this time it was Peru. Susan continued to let get go of what was not her and more deep seated PTSD. Susan avoids all stimulants and avoids anything which takes her out of her body.
Connecting to stillness allows you to find the answers within.
Intention is medicine
Susan gradually introduced the uncooked raw organic plant-based food into her daily life and learned to be gentle with herself and always learning from her mistakes.
During this time Susan began a liquid diet, learning to chew on the liquids.
Susan noticed improvement in clarity, focus and concentration. Feeling more energised and generally happier. Digestion improved and the dysbiosis symptoms were reduced, and the skin began to glow.
You are not only what you eat, but, what you can digest in life.
If you don’t take care of your body, where are you going to live?
