Tell us about what you do and why?
I practise a unique integration of traditional acupuncture and Chinese medicine alongside modern nutritional and environmental medicine. This came about through my previous life as an environmental scientist, after which I decided to follow my passion and expand my understanding of human health, disease and wellbeing through the study of Chinese medicine. I’m driven by my desire to help both people and planet in a very small but meaningful way.
Why are you such a firm believer in the IQS philosophy?
I know from my clinical and life experience that everything is about balance. There is way too much sugar in the modern diet, which is tipping our bodies out of balance. I Quit Sugar is about promoting awareness and understanding, factors I feel are very important when it comes to addressing the issue of excess sugar in our diet.
The IQS Team are coming for dinner. What are you cooking us?
The whole team coming for dinner!? I’m feeling the pressure! I love Southeast Asian cuisine so I’d probably make a fish or chicken curry with a whole lot of delicious herbs and spices like chilli, ginger, garlic, lemongrass and coriander.
