Are you ready to take control of your health?
I believe knowledge is power, and that every woman should feel empowered about their health and understand their bodies. At Healthful I want you to have access to the best testing, information and resources so you can feel vibrant and healthy.
We are located in the heart of Somerton Park, South Australia.
We recently asked our Naturopath Jacqui some questions to help you get to know her better.
What first sparked your interest in women’s health?
I always say women’s health found me, I began seeing a lot of women in clinic struggling with PMS, period pain and hormone related
fluctuations. And it seemed these women were feeling very stuck for options- they’d been to their doctor, tried to improve their eating but still had no shifts in their hormonal complaints. So I started to throw myself into the research and understanding what is really going on for these women.
What do you do to relax?
Meditation is my key practice for helping me switch off after the day. I must say it still hasn’t become habit of every night as I encourage my clients to but I know that if I do that my sleep is so much better and for me sleep is everything.
Tell us about your what your having dinner.
It would have to be something quick and easy- at the moment it is pan fried asparagus, mushrooms, baby spinach and some marinated tofu served on some quinoa or rice. Great the next day for leftover lunch too!
What therapies are you loving to use in clinic right now?
The power of fasting over night for up to 14 hours to help reset insulin signalling and assist weight loss. This is a powerful way to help women with sugar cravings, energy dips and has even been shown to change the way our genes work. Always discuss with your practitioner first though to see if this could be right for you.
