Hello, this is a picture of me aged two – obviously destined to become a nurse.
I am a Mum of three boys (now Men!) and a now retired, registered nurse with a Diploma in Nutritional Medicine. I gave up work and England several years ago and moved to Southern Spain with my husband and eldest son.We lived in a beautiful, quiet location and I had imagined a peaceful life, reading books, practising Yoga and studying Energy Medicine. This was not to be. The last few years have been taken up with caring for various family members and friends who were ill and trying to cope with, at times very high levels of stress. I became extremely tired, frustrated with life and discontented. Something had to change and I realised that it was mainly my attitude.
I had come to Spain to retire from nursing, give up caring for everyone and do things for myself – nourish my soul, rest……My reality is that I am a carer and hopefully I will always be ( I’d make a terrible patient!) I have come to realise this only recently and that through all of my years of nursing I have been at odds with the medical profession. I have witnessed 30 years of decline in the caring, holistic side of healthcare, a tremendous increase in the use of drugs and a dire lack of time allotted for listening, observing, understanding and treating.
Now through books and the internet I know that a huge wave of change is happening and I want to be part of it. The key words are Functional Medicine (as opposed to Dysfunctional Medicine?) – teaching people to stay healthy and take responsibility for managing their personal health. Now I have decided to accept that my life cannot be one long holiday, that the internet is a necessary evil if I want to continue to be educated and to educate and that I really want to make a difference and be heard. I’m hoping that this Blog will be just one way of achieving that. I continue to educate myself, having completed courses such as Digestive Intensive from Andrea Nakayama, The Auto Immune Summit with Amy Myers, The Allergy Epidemic and Metabolic Healing. I am a Distributor of Sizzling Minerals, a natural plant based Mineral Drink that is helping many people Worldwide.
