I have always been drawn to self-sufficiency. I love the idea of using the resources around me, not being led by marketing and advertising campaigns, eating what you grow and living on what you have.
A few years ago, I was lucky enough to have a smallholding in Scotland. I had four sheep, an Ayrshire cow called Rosie, numerous goats, chickens, pigs, cats, dogs and my old horse, Thatch. My son, Dominic, was ten weeks old when we first moved to Scotland, and my daughter, Sophie, was born a few years later.
Our cow and two goats produced 26 pints of milk a day, so as well as eating a lot of rice pudding, we made butter, cheese, ice-cream and whey, and still had enough leftover to feed the piglets. We also grew enough strawberries to last right through the winter.
I had a number of other life adventures over the years, which led, a few years ago, to my move to Cornwall. Here, I created a new vegetable patch, began fishing and putting out a lobster pot, and remembered the joy that comes from making things happen for yourself.
I had used homeopathy on animals many years ago, and my move to Cornwall brought with it the time and resources to enable me to find out more about this natural form of medicine.
I began to understand that many physical ailments are related to our emotional state, and that this wasn’t being addressed by conventional medical practices. And that often our bodies simply need a deeper understanding, and a gentle form of support, to help them heal.
I studied Homeopathy at The South West School Of Homeopathic Medicine and now practice in Falmouth, Cornwall.
I am continuing my training with the School of Natural Health Sciences and the International College of Holistic Medicine, and have additional qualifications in Holistic Pain Management, Stress Management and Allergy Testing.
