Why my approach to gut and hormone imbalance is different
I know you’ve had enough, you’re tired of trying and you have tried everything when it comes to your gut health challenges, hormone imbalances and SIBO issues.
Yet there is hope – and I know how to help get to the root cause of your issues, instead of just masking them.
Now is the time to step up and reclaim your health and wellness through a functional medicine approach and a guiding hand from someone who has been there and understands where you’re at right now.
At Nurture Your Life, we stand by three defining factors:
Did you know?
Despite advances in modern medicine - and massive amounts of money spent on healthcare - the average person’s health continues to decline.
Diabetes and obesity rates are skyrocketing among adults and children. Autoimmune diseases have dramatically increased worldwide. (Source: Functional Medicine Coaching Academy)
A healthy gut and balanced hormones contribute to a strong immune system, overall health and wellness, vitality, improved mood, better sleep and digestion, and a better quality of life.
"When the microbiome is thrown out of balance for any reason, it's often easy to tell. Bloating, gas, diarrhoea, stomach pain or nausea are all pretty direct signs that something in the gut isn't working as it should.” (Source: Time)
Similarly, when your hormones are out of balance – you feel it. It can result in weight gain or loss, excessive sweating, mood swings, difficulty sleeping, depression and headaches, among other symptoms.
What is functional medicine?
Functional medicine goes to the root cause of disease in your body and works holistically to heal all the symptoms. It also looks at the inter-connecting symptoms. As a health coach with a functional medicine approach, I work holistically with my clients to get them to optimum health.
At Nurture Your Life, by identifying the root causes, we help men and women:
- Reverse hair loss
- Balance hormones
- Overcome gut issues such as small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)
- Use food as medicine by choosing the right nutritional supplements
We help you do this in 5 ways
1. 21-Day Hormone Detox Program
A self-guided or coach-guided programme to reset your hormones in 21 days using the power of diet, beneficial herbs and eliminating endocrine disruptors in your environment/home.
This detox will help your skin glow, improve your mood and energy, and detox more than your body. The 21-Day Detox has an additional layer that you won’t find with other plans, where you’ll detox your home too.

Get the scoop on the best hormone foods, female-reproductive system disorders and herbs for hormone balance.
2 x 21-Day Recipe Guides:
Access to my chef-created hormone detox recipes; one for omnivores and one for vegetarians.

I highly suggest recording your foods and moods so you can see what’s working for your unique body. Pay special attention to foods that energise you and foods that cause you to drag. Just because a food is “healthy” doesn’t mean it’s right for your body!

"I have found my "Health History Coaching Session" with Helen to be very informative and useful as she identified which tests I should get for further investigation. Helen is highly professional and thorough in her feedback. She gave lots of helpful advice on what I can do now and which supplements to take to help me achieve better health balance. I would highly recommend her services.”
