In 1989 I qualified as a chiropractor, I left college enthused with the information I had and confident I could help people. I hadn’t been in practice long before the frustration began to mount. The theory of what I knew and the results I was getting did not match and consequently I felt like a terrible failure. It took many years and a lot of further training to understand what good health is about and how to achieve it.
In 2007 I met Dr James Chestnut founder of the Innate lifestyle program – Eat Well, Move Well, Think Well. As I sat in his first lecture I knew I had found the answers I needed.
I worked my way through his program and became qualified as a wellness chiropractor in 2009, one of only four in the UK at that time. I have lived the program personally for over 10 years now and I can say with complete honesty it was easy.
In my own past I have dieted and worked out in gyms to get slimmer, I was always the fat kid at school, the one that was never any good at sport and I lacked confidence in just about everything I tried.
I find it bizarre that I now get up at 5.30am everyday, walk and do exercises, make fresh juices, go to work with enthusiasm and energy, juggle work and family life, stand up in front of people and talk about lifestyle and wellness with a passion I feel in my soul. I am fitter and healthier than I have ever been in my life, I weigh less now than I did in my 20’s and the most incredible thing of all is that it was effortless.
