Balance Your Diet to Balance Your Body & Mind

Do you know what good nutrition is? Really good nutrition? Do you know that if it doesn't grow you shouldn't eat it because it isn't actually food? Do you know what the signs of poor nutrition are? Do you know how much fresh filtered water you should be consuming every day to avoid your cells becoming chronically dehydrated?

The vast majority of people, if answered honestly, would answer no to these questions, and that's OK because for most of us we're never taught it. My school home economics class taught me how to make mac & cheese, apple crumble and various fruit pies. Handy if I plan to go back to the fifties but not so much for showing me how a balanced diet, full of good healthy live foods can not only heal my entire body but can keep me there, in a state of blissful health & wellness, energized, full of vitality, happy and stress free - yes, bad diet contributes to our stress levels. 

When the food we eat is not nourishing us, when our physical and mental health is not where we'd like it to be, our bodies respond with issues such as leaky gut, IBS, depression, anxiety, immune and endocrine system imbalances and so much more. Do you even know what the signs of malnourishment are, has anyone ever told you what to look out for? Diet, what we eat, is one of the most vitally important things we can do for our health, and yet it's overlooked by every system we enter as we grow from infant to young adult responsible for our own eating, our own health & wellness. 


A few signs of inadequate nutrition:

  • Unexplained fatigue
  • Brittle and dry hair
  • Ridged or spoon-shaped nails
  • Mouth problems
  • Diarrhea or constipation 
  • Apathy, irritability & mood fluctuations
  • Lack of motivation, lethargy & malaise 
  • Lack of appetite

I had all of these and so much more and yet not one Doctor asked me about my diet. That is not to say it is the Doctor's fault, as I later found out they are not trained in the effects of what we put in our bodies.

For every person working with Enlightened Life towards their health and wellness goals I will recommend at the very least a nutrition plan tailored uniquely for you - one at the beginning to help with the bodies detoxification process and one at the end of our treatments to help build your body back up whilst it gently heal, repairs and fully restores itself back to balance, however a more balanced approach is to have nutrition throughout the entire treatment time as part of an Energy Healing + Nutrition Protocol Package. Amy Huggins is an exceptionally qualified nutritionist who learned just how important the impact of food on the body was when she healed herself from years of infertility by changing how and what she ate. She is now the very proud mumma of two beautiful little girls.

I had never had Reiki before but decided to try it after having tried medications and counselling for my depression and anxiety. After only a few sessions with Kerry I am amazed at how much my depression has lifted and I am no longer held back by anxiety. I would definitely recommend Reiki with Kerry to anyone.


I am amazed at how much better I feel, a lifetime of depression is gone, anxiety and fear a thing of the past, and as a truly amazing side effect the physical pain and discomfort I was in is also completely gone - no more neck brace! I would definitely recommend Reiki and Enlightened Life to anyone, it has given me my life back


Really restorative! Kerry uncovered a lot of current and deeper causes for the way I felt and helped me achieve a much greater sense of self-awareness and clarity. Give it a go!!


Kerry has made significant progress with my lower back and neck pain. The sessions have been undertaken in a wonderful relaxing environment and Kerry is a very warm and responsive Reiki practitioner. Highly recommend!


I have seen Kerry 3 times, and every time has been even more powerful than the last. She has managed to uncover issues in all areas of my life that I didn’t even know where there, so I could finally address them and shed the weight. 10/10!


I was really sceptical about this Reiki stuff, but I was surprised how relaxed I felt after my session with Kerry and have continued to go back as per her treatment plan suggestion. Would recommend anyone to give it a go


Reiki with Kerry is amazing, it's like learning your own internal gossip, that you had no idea was there
