My health and wellness journey started when I was pregnant with my daughter. What I did not want for her was lifeless and denatured food that may be convenient but full of preservatives and chemicals. I studied macrobiotic at Kushi Institute of Japan, then Holistic nutrition, which opened the door to raw and living food cuisine. I started to understand the importance of nutrition deeper when I became “unwell”. Realising that I might not see her grow up I needed make a drastic change.
Refined foods prevent us from keeping vital body and mind. What we need is high quality whole and intact foods that can clean, build or maintain us. It makes sense that by eating foods created by nature helps us to harmonise with natural rhythms. Wholesome foods nourish your body as oppose to starving it with empty calories from factory made foods. Truly satisfying the body will create beautiful skin, shiny hair and more energy, and often heals itself in the most amazing way.
I decided to go against the mainstream ideas of “curing”. I wanted to expand my knowledge in all these natural healing, including tonic and medicinal herbs, traditional Chinese medicine, energy healing and other cutting edge longevity protocols to let the body heal itself.
Food is a fuel to our bodies but it is more than that. I see them as messengers which deliver different energy and can alter our cells in such a powerful way. You know your body the best and can nourish the way your body needs to be. In order to do that many of us benefit by unlearning many things we picked up along the way.
Shoku Iku Cafe and Shoku Iku Academy is one of my places, where I find the inspiration to keep connecting with the source, abundant love we all have to give and share, and graciously receive with gratitude.
