Hi I’m Louise. Loula Natural was created way back in 2005 when I was running my personal training and natural cosmetics company in London, UK. Loula comes from my mum’s nickname for me “Loulabelle”. I always loved it and since I was already fully immersed into all things natural I put the two together!
I am a fully certified Naturopath and Nutritional Therapist (ND and NTP). I have been practising for almost a decade and currently have my own practice in Kinsale, Co. Cork. Previously I have had a thriving clinic in London and Hong Kong so I have a wide variety of clientele and also work internationally with video conferencing too.
The tools I use to help people back to health and strength are foods (nutrients and supplements), herbs, fermented foods and drinks, Bach Flower Remedies, Live Blood Analysis, Emotion Freedom Technique (EFT and Matrix Re-Imprinting), mindfulness and exercise (I have also been a qualified PT for over 10 years).
I am truly passionate about using Nature and Natural processes to heal, nurture and strengthen the body, mind and spirit. I am a Registered Provider for Allianz Insurance.
I have been a personal trainer for over a decade and have loved guiding and sculpting people into the strong, energetic and fit people they want to be, to achieve the goals they desired. I noticed that people were struggling to reach their goals with physical prescription only. I became a Naturopath and Nutritional Therapist to combine physical, emotional and energetic healing. For almost 12 years I have been pharmaceutical free, I came off all over the counter medications like ibuprofen, decongestants, oral contraceptive pill and have had no antibiotics for that length of time. I was plagued with digestive, hormonal and immune issues prior to this point and I can say that I am in such a different place now in my body. Far from perfect (I mean who is inside and out!), I can safely say that using natural methods, time, patience and self-love has made me a stronger, healthier and nicer person!
A Naturopath will look at the person as a whole and rather than treat symptoms and will observe the bigger picture to help interpret the signals the body sends us. In my sessions I seek to educate you and discuss body systems (the nervous, cardiovascular, reproductive, digestive, excretory, immune, lymphatic, muscular, endocrine, skeletal and respiratory), how they are linked and how they all tell a story about what’s going on. This can therefore be used to help the body heal from any number of complaints. Whole body strength and health is the goal rather than chasing symptoms and patching things up.
I take my role as a Naturopath as an Educator seriously and enjoy teaching many course such as my Nutrition Course’s (Children’s Nutrition, Hormone Balance and Digestive system), Fermenting and Culturing Workshops and Introduction to Bach Flowers. I also regularly do talks on children’s nutrition, pre and post natal nutrition, natural first aid and other topics. I am happy to share and provide information. I have written 2 books. The first, Culture Your Life; Kefir and Kombucha for daily nourishment
was published in Dec 2014 and Nurture your Life; Your REAL FOOD weaning guide was published just this year!
I am also a mother of two, therefore I also hold great passion for helping people through fertility, pre and post natal and after about how children should be nourished and fed. Personally I use nutrition, homoeopathy, meditation and exercise as my family first aid kit, although I strongly believe in calling myself a complementary practitioner rather than alternative. I pride myself on my ability to guide people to make their own choices in their journey to take responsibility for their own health and happiness.
My strengths are;
Pre and Post-natal Nutrition,
Hormonal Balance and
I enjoy working with men, women and children of all ages. I take one to one, group and Skype sessions and have clients worldwide.
I have a 6 year old daughter and a son who is 3.5, I shall be talking about my experiences, my tips on different treatments, my favourite recipes and a lot about nutrition for all ages and life stages. I will share 5 ways too, nutrient fact sheets, recipes, affirmations for life and exercises of the month.
I am open to comments and always looking to refer and gain referrals so feel free to contact me or comment on my pages.
