Lauraine West - Holistic Health Practitioner
I have working in the Complementary Health business since 2003 however it wasn't always that way and I was once like you. During a particularly stressful time, I developed shingles and had an on-going battle with my energy levels further compounded with insomnia, digestive problems, stress, eczema and weight gain. My usual confidence and calmness with bags of energy disappeared.
I booked a Food Intolerance Test for myself, saw a hypnotherapist and learned first had that a) I had a dreadful diet and b) how to love myself much more. I went from eating anything in a card box box and frozen peas or pasta to becoming a Vegan who does not eat wheat/gluten/dairy/eggs and cooking from fresh.
I really understand the inner doubts and the thoughts you have about yourself. I know with first-hand experience that you will learn how to make changes. You'll learn how to make better shopping choices, how to read a food label, how amazing home cooked food is, you'll sleep the best you have for a long time, you'll manage your stress levels, and your family and pets will love you for it. (I have dogs, they pick up on everything!).
My programmes are ideal for people in their 40's and 50's who are looking for ways to grab life again with both hands without feeling awkward, tired and lack-lustre with their life.
My programmes are:-

Before I stopped eating meat I was on a wheat free diet and I became a Vegetarian in 2009 at which point I was on a wheat-free and milk-free diets. These days I am a Vegan with wheat/gluten/milk free diet. I cook my own meals and understand the frustrations of not being able to cook something quickly. I can help you with your shopping, supplements, and recipes whether it's for healthy eating or weight loss or pregnancy. I have completed additional Vegan/Vegetarian training and a supplements advisory course.
My partner snored and due to bullying at my workplace I suffered stress and know what it feels like to not sleep for whatever reason. These days, my sleep is wonderful due to meditation, and not allowing any bully to enter my life. I have also completed an Insomnia Practitioner Course to help me work with you.
