Hello, I am Rachel. Thank you for taking the time to enjoy my little ‘slice’ of the internet.
For as long as I can remember I have always had a keen interest in holistic health and wellness. As an adolescent I set up a yoga club at school, burned incense and oils in my bedroom, started collecting crystals and made my own face masks! This interest was then magnified six years ago when I was diagnosed with multiple autoimmune conditions – My diagnosis came after I was admitted to hospital via A&E as a heart attack patient, which was terrifying!
Since then it has been a real rollercoaster of a journey, which has led to a lot of self discovery and development. It has also created a very real need to live a more holistic lifestyle and been an opportunity to experiment with different complementary therapies.
It has been my mission to take control of and manage my own health in as natural way as possible. This hasn’t always been achievable, but I believe I have struck a happy balance between conventional medicine and complementary therapies.
This is a space where I hope to share some of the tips and tricks, thoughts and lessons I’ve learned along the way. You’ll find a mix of how to’s on complementary therapies, holistic living and wellness. Plus posts about natural beauty and I’ll also be sharing recipes that I love. I must point out that I am not medically trained and the therapies I am qualified to offer are limited, my posts will mostly be based on personal experience and information gathered from my own research.
I hope you enjoy reading and can’t wait to hear your thoughts and stories about your experiences too.
