Hello my name is Lynn and my experience with naturopathy has been a personal journey to understand the importance of changing to a way of life that included the deeper understanding and importance of my diet and supplements and how they have helped and improved my overall well being.
As I aged into my fifties I found that with the onset of menopause I was facing some difficult and challenging changes. Before I started with Monica I was not coping very well with lack of sleep and hormone changes, there was depression, anxiety, restlessness, lack of motivation and desire, new aches and pains etc.
I was about to embark on the usual course of action that a lot of women my age choose and recommended and start taking sleeping tablets, anti depressants and hormone replacement but decided instead to try an alternative approach to see if that helped first. I have certainly found that after visiting Monica and by sticking to a planed regime of diet and vitamins for the last two years that I am feeling a lot better and like my old self these days without any of those things.
My journey has involved quite a few changes including finding better sleep which in turn makes you happier in yourself. I had quite a profound weight loss in the beginning but once I settled into my new routine I found a more realistic approach to everything that I can maintain and even though a little heavier than after my initial weight loss I can happily say that all it is working well for me. I am allowing myself a more 80-20 approach to everything these days and not so rigid.
I have found Monica to be a very caring practitioner with a very sensitive approach to her clients. I always feel valued and important and she goes out of her way to really listen to her clients and try to meet and understand their needs. This would include a deeper understanding of not just their physical but also their emotional state which in this day and age goes a long way to the greater health plan.
