Let me tell you a little about myself.
From about 8 years old I was cutting up scraps of fabric to make clothes for my dolls and myself. Being the youngest of three children and the 2nd daughter in the family, not many of my clothes were bought for me so I decided very early on life to make things so they would be unique and made especially for me.
My attempts to to become a famous singer in my teens failed massively and I found myself as a single mum before reconnecting with my childhood sweetheart John. We married and went on to have 2 further children and settled down trying to provide them with the best life we could, both working hard to find good work opportunities.
to reach corporate levels in our careers. After leaving my role as Head of Member Services for an online gaming company, I started my own business as a full time professional singer in 2011.
Initially work requests were quiet but this gave me the opportunity to study as a Contemporary Vocal Teacher for Adolescents and Children and provide vocal lessons at a local music school.
Eventually invitations to sing with different bands, studios, solo gigs came in and I found myself overwhelmed with singing commitments and I noticed my vocal range had deteriorated and I was struggling to sing like I used to. I decided to contact my doctor for help.
I was diagnosed with Vocal Chord Paralysis and Acid Reflux and was given fortnightly voice therapy sessions for about 18 months. At the end of my sessions, my voice did improve but it had far from mended and there was very little the hospital could suggest so I was discharged and given a bottle of Gaviscon (antacids) for my acid reflux .
This prompted me to conduct a little bit of 'self health' and also when my interest into health really took off. I hated the idea of taking any medicines so trawling the internet to find natural solutions to Acid Reflux is where I discovered the various health issues that most of us experience today are due nutrient deficiency.
At a around a similar time in 2014, I lost my Dad to Stomach Cancer and was devastated that I wasn’t able to help him to recover. He fell ill in my early days of studying Nutritional Therapy and I didn’t feel equipped to provide him with guidance on health matters – although I was reprimanded for bringing fruit and soup to his bedside in hospital! We sadly lost my Dad but I vowed to find out more about health so I could help myself, friends and family.
Over the years I always connected health to happiness. The messages we say to ourselves, the mood we find ourselves in, all have an impact far deeper on our health than we realise. My research has involved many hours of study have enlightened me to many conditions and symptoms that cause us to suffer illness.
Also recently I have rekindled my love of making music, fashion and sewing by discovering the Lutterloh Pattern Making system and I am learning to speak Spanish as a way to connect with world a little better.
Whilst I continue on my own journey to make my life as fabulous as I can, I want everyone visiting here to awaken their own soul and to be inspired to be creative, happy and healthy by the articles and content I produce on this website.
