You might know someone who can relate to a lovely lady Emma who came to see me initially in 2021. She was prompted to come and see me as she was seeking solutions for her acne, and from there she’s gone on to tackle several areas in which she feels she had room for growth.
Before we share more about Emma’s journey, I wonder if you may know of someone who’s struggling? – it could be with their skin health or it might be with chronic low energy, a feeling that they’ve not fully slept or maybe it’s poor digestion. Whatever it might be, it’s usually a signal from our bodies telling us that there’s something not right.
As for Emma, she realised that no matter what we do, we cannot get everything we need from our food. So she started on a Nutritionals Protocol based on her cell’s needs.
We also identified specific lifestyle changes 1 she could be making to reduce inflammation in her body. We looked at the foods that she was eating and those it maybe worth her trialing, to see how they suit her body (rather than following a set dietary plan.)
Plus we did a specific allergy test to make sure we’re on the right track and the test results were quite surprising for her. We also looked at her hormone levels, hydration, exercise and various relevant stretches.
Emma’s noticed that it’s not simply about following a standard or popular plan – the key is to find out what suits our own system.
What I’ve found, and continue to find for myself and my clients, is that it’s not that we’re not doing what we need to do because there’s not enough information available. Rather the gap seems to be in figuring out, trialing and identifying what’s relevant for us, and then having the support to consistently follow through – especially when we drop the ball!
In Emma’s words “ I initially came to Fi with acne but it turned into a broader devotion to my health and well-being for me. It’s such an absolute joy to work with you, Fi!”

I look forward to seeing you on this week’s #ALivewithFi. And until I connect with you then, if you find this useful please do share. Ciao for now 🙂
