After healing 15 years of digestive issues in 3 months with an Ayurvedic approach, I trained in Ayurveda and Hypnotherapy, and wrote ‘Your Peaceful Belly’ to share how to look after your digestion, support strong immunity & relieve stress.

Hi, I’m Lucy

Hi, I am a health coach who specialises in supporting your immunity through addressing gut health, nutrition and stress – I trained in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy specialising in stress, and as an Ayurvedic consultant specialising in preventative healthcare & gut health. I offer my work one day a week to inner city communities in unconditional gift.

For a healthy gut and strong immune system you need three things: knowledge about your metabolism and how to live in balance with this, the skills that allow you to feel calm when stress is all around, and food that has been grown in soil that has a rich microbiome, because this supports your gut microbiome. A soil alive with microorganisms will also help to reverse our climate challenges – “We cannot extract the human health story from the planetary one anymore” – Zach Bush MD

The incredible being that you are

Each one of us exists thanks to an amazing living community of cells, bacteria, fungi & protazoa  that balance each other for our wellbeing – welcome to your microbiome
Your microbiome is found in your gut, on your skin, in your eyes, in your brain – it’s in every tissue that creates your existence. When this living community teaming with life becomes unbalanced we become physically ill and mentally stressed.
A compromised microbiome stops your cells from communicating properly, with gut problems, allergies, a weakened immune system and chronic illnesses the result

Ayurveda

When your microbiome is flourishing it enables every cell in your body to keep you healthy – diversity is key!

But that’s only part of the story. We also need to understand how to live in balance with our metabolism. Ayurveda, which has been around for 5000 years, shows us how to do this.

Gut health

There has been a surge of research, articles and books in relation to gut health, which mirrors the rise in digestive issues and chronic health conditions. My approach to gut health is to bring together the Ayurvedic approach, the latest research in relation to our microbiome, with a solution focused approach to managing stress, based upon the latest in brain science – this is the approach that allowed me to heal 15 years of digestive challenges in just 3 months. Subscribe to my newsletter, and follow my podcast and posts on Facebook and Instagram, where I will be continuing the conversation around gut health.

Nutrition

I am trained in Ayurvedic nutrition. For Ayurveda, the things we consume through all of our senses will impact our body’s ability to metabolise our food. For this reason Ayurveda takes into account food and lifestyle choices, explaining the effect these have upon people with different constitutions. If you are eating nutritious food to nourish your cells but your lifestyle is causing imbalance, you will still be creating conditions that undermine your immune system and negatively impact your gut microbiome. Ayurveda is able to accurately identify your particular constitution and offer guidelines to support this. Ayurvedic Nutrition is a fascinating topic and I’ll be continuing the conversation through my posts, podcasts, newsletter, as well as on my Instagram and Facebook book pages.

Immunity

For Ayurveda, strong immunity is a product of good digestion.  We need to make sure our digestion is working well through our life choices, the food we eat and, through the way we grow that food. We currently have a global chemical farming system that kills the microbiome in the soil, this leads to food that is lacking  in nutrition, at the same time as bringing chemicals into our system that kill the microbiome in our guts – hence the steep increase in gut problems and chronic health conditions since the introduction of glyphosate in the 1990’s. This all contributes to a compromised immune function.

To address this we need to source our food from farming practices that regenerate the microbiome in the soil and do not use anti microbial chemicals – during 2020 numerous research papers showed there was a correlation between gut health and the severity of COVID 19 symptoms – gut problems lead to a lowered immune function.

Stress

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (SFH) cured me of complex PTSD in 12 weeks, I went on to train and now support people to turn stress around. SFH is a process based on the latest in neuroscience. It shifts the brain from the survival, unhappy, angry, anxious, obsessive, addictive, depressed part of the brain to the creative, innovative neo-cortex. Operating from this part of the brain allows us to solve problems and produce all those feel good chemicals. I work with individuals and offer bespoke programmes to organisations.
