It’s nice to connect with you today, celebrating the end of the year and the festive season. I hope you’ve had a chance to relax and enjoy time with your family during this busy time.
Today, I want to say thank you to you.
To all my clients, thank you – you’ve trusted me to be part of your journey to be healthier, and I’m grateful for that. I look forward to helping more of you next year and bringing in some new and exciting things.
In this busy time, remember to spend time with your loved ones. I’ll also be with my family, and I hope you’ll take moments to cherish time with yours too. It’s about making good memories and having fun in these moments.
Life gets really busy, but this time of year, I like to pause and appreciate everything going on around me. Looking back at this year, I’m happy to have helped many clients on their health journey. I’ve loved seeing how they’ve improved and how it has made a difference to their families.
Next year, there are exciting new opportunities and ideas planned. I want to help you more with your health journey. New events are planned, more helpful health information and even a new testing tool is arriving soon. Keep an eye on my social media and newsletters to know all the exciting things planned for next year. Your support means a lot, and I’m happy to share this new chapter with you.
Without good health, we can’t fully enjoy this time of year. Health is crucial—it allows us to cherish our loved ones, earn a living, support our families, and experience everything life has to offer.
Health isn’t just about feeling symptom-free; it’s about supporting your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being—it’s the whole package. I’m excited to witness your health progress in the upcoming year. Meanwhile, relish Christmas and the celebrations, including Christmas dinner, sensibly embracing all that this time brings.
I wanted to take a moment to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your 2023.
Looking ahead to the new year, I’m here to support you in pursuing your health ambitions.
Thank you for being here today. Have a delightful, healthy and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Sending lots of love and happiness to you and your family.

This is how gut microbes can influence weight!
Probiotics can help you gain weight or lose weight by interacting with our genetics, food and metabolism.
And yes, I did say lose or gain weight……..
Firstly, let me explain that the trillions of microbes in the gut need to be varied, meaning that there should be a large variety of species. There are many different species (or breeds) of microbes, and they all have their place in aiding health — the more variety and balance, the better health results.
Back to the weight loss or weight gain issue….
Do you eat yogurt and berries for breakfast? Thinking that it’s helping you lose weight?
Well, Lactobacillus acidophilus (like the species found in yoghurt) has been connected to weight gain.
I am not saying throw your yoghurt and berries in the bin. Instead, I am suggesting looking at the overall picture. If Lactobacillus acidophilus is the predominant micro-organism of the gut, then weight gain can result.
It is about the variety of species of gut microbes. Imagine if we only have trained german shepherd guard dogs in the world. It may be a safe world, but I am sure that other breeds may be more suitable as a family pet.
While Lactobacillus acidophilus is associated with weight gain, other Lactobacillus species correlate with weight loss.
Species like Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus gasseri, and Bifidobacteria animalis have been found to support weight loss.
Want to lose weight?
Look at your gut flora to support your goal.
Tests can be performed to identify the predominant species of the gut, and specific species can be utilised to support weight changes.
