Hello and welcome!
I am so excited and grateful to have you visit my Blog – a holistic approach to Rheumatoid Arthritis symptoms. I am a mum on the journey of recovering from Rheumatoid Arthritis and a number of other Autoimmune conditions. Having finally gained so much improvement through the measures I have put in place, I would now love to support and connect with you.
Firstly, I will provide you with invaluable information on how you too can move beyond the limitations of a depressing diagnosis. While I don’t have all the answers and am always trying and investigating new approaches, I know that having an inspiring plan of action can be just what is needed to beat overwhelm, and experience more ease and joy. At the end of the day, you must find what works for you personally, as we are all unique.
I am passionate about creativity and healing sound and I love having an holistic approach to my life. Most of all, I can’t wait to motivate and inspire you to make the changes that will create a huge shift you perhaps didn’t realise was possible.
