I’m Caroline – a health & wellness coach, Pilates Instructor, wife and busy mother of one. I’m a big advocate for living a natural lifestyle and love learning about ways to improve my overall wellbeing. I love nutritious food and you’ll often find me boring people with my talk of green smoothies, mindfulness and essential oils. I wasn’t always quite so passionate about healthy living but when my own digestive problems became impossible to ignore; I discovered the only way I was going to feel better was by addressing the root cause of my symptoms through diet and lifestyle changes. I learnt that embracing good nutrition was the key to taking back control of my own health. Looking back, I now know many of my health problems began as a teenager, but during that time I saw conditions like acne as normal and something you simply had to ‘grow out of’. I spent my 20s tormented with mouth ulcers and digestive problems but when test results showed I was not coeliac; I carried on eating pizzas, bread and all the other gluten packed staples of a 20 somethings diet. As I approached my 30th birthday I decided I’d had enough and it was time for a major change. I began by doing food intolerance tests and read countless books on nutrition and elimination diets. As soon as I cut wheat & gluten out of my diet the mouth ulcers disappeared, I began to sleep better, my constant thirst went away and I no longer felt those awful afternoon slumps and sugar cravings. My digestive problems went away almost immediately and the more I cooked with basic natural ingredients the better I began to feel. Over the past 5 years I’ve worked hard to prioritise my health and the health of my family. My interest in food and health led me to study dietary counselling and to become a Health & Wellness Coach. My wellness journey has brought me into contact with many likeminded people and has expanded my concept of what it means to be in ‘great health’. Good food and nutrition is one big part of the puzzle for me but I also understand how the way you feel can determine the state of your overall health and wellbeing. I have learnt to practice transcendental meditation and continue to learn and work on my own self-awareness. Shortly after my daughter was born I was introduced to essential oils and using these oils daily has enhanced the health of our family – physically, mentally and emotionally. It’s an exciting time to be a part of a growing ‘wellness community’. I’m passionate about feeling good and helping others on their journey to wellness. I love being involved in the positive changes people make to their lifestyle as they embrace good health.
