Totoly Nourished is the result of a lifelong commitment to living an abundant, healthy life and a desire to help others do the same.
‘Totoly’, a fusion of my name (Toto) and ‘Total’, refers to wholly and holistically nourishing yourself – mind, body and soul. As a qualified nutritional therapist and yoga teacher, I combine ancient principles with the latest research to help clients discover true health and vitality.
We all deserve to thrive. I truly believe that you hold the key to your own health; the challenge is realising the tools and power you possess to unleash the best version of yourself. This is where I come in!
My path to nourishment hasn’t exactly been plain sailing but I believe that my own experiences have enabled this amazing journey in discovering health and wanting to support others. Born without a thyroid gland (congenital hypothyroidism), a rare condition which affects a wide range of functions in the body, my childhood was carefully controlled by daily medication and frequent hospital visits. My condition was managed well until about the age of 17, where it all crumbled before my eyes.
Two and a half years of being on/off housebound, experiencing debilitating IBS, chronic fatigue and depression/anxiety, led to an ‘all or nothing’ moment where I decided to take hold of my own life and go back to basics. I started to nourish my body with whole foods and quickly began to realise that there was another way to heal the body; through complete nourishment and self care. I started practising yoga in 2012 as a way of slowly regaining physical strength. I began to notice that not only was my physical body starting to heal, my mental health was improving. In time, I learned to appreciate my body and mind for its unique, albeit slightly unorthodox makeup, and from that point on I have never looked back.
Baby steps turned into bigger leaps and having navigated my own way back to health, I undertook three years of training in Naturopathic Nutrition at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in Edinburgh and London. I qualified as a Nutritional Therapist in 2018 and I am a member of The British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT). I qualified as a yoga teacher in October 2019, having completed over 200 hours of training in India with The Yoga People; the most transformative experience of my life to date. I live in South West London with two wonderful flatmates; discovering the many, exciting opportunities which this diverse city has to offer.
Life has its challenges and at some point we are all faced with them. I feel so lucky to have found this holistic, wholesome approach to wellbeing and I hope that this website encourages you to take the steps towards better health and an abundant life.
Nourish yourself from the inside out, move your body in a way that makes you feel good and most importantly, commit to loving yourself more.
