From Mental Chaos to Clarity
Empowering those with ADD and ADHD, and other mental issues
I am passionate about empowering those with mental issues by giving them the tools and resources that they need to help themselves (or their children with ADD, ADHD), and other developmental issues to move from being highly impulsive and distractible, disorganised, and in perpetual motion to being calm and confident with clarity of thinking so that they can enjoy quality time together.
I understand especially the problems that parents may have because I have a son who, when at school would these days have been diagnosed as having ADHD, but at that time it was not recognised.
Life is not easy at the best of times as a parent; there is no how-to manual telling us as parents how to bring up our children and this is so much more difficult when you have the added complications of developmental problems.
At True Wellness I use a new and different method of working with clients who prefer not to use conventional medicine (which often tends to just mask the symptoms).
My method of helping my clients back to health is called “Functional Medicine”, and I look for the "root cause" of the issues, that show up as symptoms, and show my clients how to remedy them. I work like a detective, using "functional testing" where necessary, to ferret out the causes so that I can give personalised advice on the best route forward.
Gravel in your sandals
Think of when you wear sandals and walk down a gravelly path and you get some gravel in your sandals so that every step you take you are pressing numerous bits of gravel into your foot. It’s agony!
What do you do? Do you think, “I must put some socks on, to pad my feet against the gravel and perhaps take some pain-killers so that I don’t feel the pain anymore”? Conventional medicine-style?
No, I don’t think you would! I think you would take off your sandals and get rid of those pesky bits of gravel!
Well, that is exactly the same sort of thing that I do. I get rid of the irritants that are causing the problems and what’s more I help the body by giving it everything it needs for support and may be missing out on to be able to heal itself, especially the immune system.
Creating a Time-line
I help my clients by looking at the complete picture of their health and life from their conception (and before if possible) to the present day and drawing up a time-line so that I can see what is going on!
I am then in a position to develop a personalised protocol including:
- remedying nutritional deficiencies and much more……… so that the whole system can start to rejuvenate.
Learn about exciting, as well as basic good sense, therapies that do not cost the earth to boost your immune system and your vitality.
I also work with the methylation pathways to check that they are functioning, as well as other related pathways, which are essential to good health.
Methylation affects gene expression by turning on or off/ speeding up or slowing down the way a gene works. Genes function to control all facets of our lives, from energy production to digestion. I can help you to support methylation to help the body to function optimally and this can help both mentally and physically.
Methylation problems are seen frequently in various developmental issues in adults and children including ADD and ADHD and are frequently connected with genetic mutations or SNPs such as MTHFR.
Specialised programs and coaching
I offer a fully specialised online program for parents and care-givers of kids with ADD and ADHD which includes personalised coaching sessions with me or you can opt for a stand-alone series of coaching sessions.
For Adults with ADD and ADHD
By no means are my programs limited to children as they are fully applicable to adults. I have a full program and series of coaching sessions for adults with ADD and ADHD too.
There is hope for you to regain more control over your life even as an adult with ADD or ADHD. Please believe that. I can give you the resources to empower you.
I want to empower you, whether an adult or a family with members diagnosed with developmental issues, to make your way to true wellness.
