"Hi I am
the founder and director of
Better Bods Better Health.
I am passionate about letting others know the
when it comes down to what we put in our mouths. This only came about once I had
children. Here I was a qualified nurse, personal trainer and massage therapist,
so thought I was doing everything right when it came to health and nutrition.

Jenna (who had severe eczema and 24 food allergies) I found food wise I was
doing everything wrong. When I was supposedly “healthy” we were sick. Now I am
supposedly “unhealthy” and our children and I are well. I have learnt once you
know the TRUTH, our modern diseases become a choice.........,simple but RADICAL
changes are the keys to
