Through homeopathy, nutritional consultations, cooking classes, seminars and workshops, Joanna shares how easy and simple it can be to feel good and look great. She’s passionate about sharing her insights on how mental, emotional and physical balance within your life will ensure you are enjoying life to the fullest.
Joanna started on her path to becoming a Homeopathic Practitioner and a Registered Holistic Nutritionist after developing a potentially irreversible thyroid disease – or so she was told. Her endocrinologist said there were no natural alternatives available to the medicine prescribed, and that it would take months to achieve the proper balance for the medications. All the while Joanna continued to experience a range of symptoms including mood swings, weight gain, and heart palpitations.
Not accepting this information, Joanna began her research. She changed her diet and lifestyle and within three months Joanna had decreased – and then eliminated – the prescribed medications. She no longer experienced any symptoms of the disease. Annual blood tests show no signs of a thyroid disorder.
Graduating from the Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine and the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition was the culmination of a number of years of education that brought Joanna to where she is today. With her life-threatening experience, she is inspired to educate others about homeopathy and nutrition and the huge role they can play in attaining a healthy lifestyle and disease prevention.
Helping women and men overcome the challenges of their middle years is of particular interest to Joanna. So often, people believe the symptoms of menopause and andropause (the male equivalent of menopause) are something they have to live with. There are many ways of reducing these symptoms through homeopathy, nutrition, supplements, exercise, and lifestyle changes. Joanna has overcome these symptoms and has the knowledge and education to support others.
In addition to her passion for homeopathy and nutrition, Joanna also brings balance to her life through continuing education, giving back to the community through volunteer work and physical exercise. Joanna is a Master in Taekwondo with her 4th Degree Black Belt and volunteers at Women’s Community House each week by providing cooking and nutrition classes.
