My story

After a series of stressful life events, by the age of 27 insomnia had crept up on me. I was in a sorry state. My energy was on the floor, my digestion was at an all time low and I had lost any hope of any creativity. My mouth also started to fill with ulcers to add insult to injury.  I was getting between 0 and 4 hours sleep a night with the occasional crash of 10 hours straight! I struggled with it for the next 15 years trying different things, and nothing seemed to work.

Despite the state of my health, I was determined not to reach for sleeping pills that were readily available. It was not until I found myself in an ashram in India meeting who is now my life teacher, Yogi Vishvketu, that I was introduced to working with the breath. Finally, using the breath in conjunction with an Ayurveda and yogic lifestyle, I was able to develop the tools to pull myself out of the challenges of anxiety and insomnia and actually enjoy life without feeling constantly ill.

What I have learned and practiced has transformed my life and I think it could transform yours too.  My goal is to save you the trouble of many years of searching for a sleep solution and guide you through the power of the Ayurveda to the return of deep profound sleep.

I absolutely know it’s possible to overcome insomnia, stress and anxiety using the principles of Ayurveda, a powerful natural Indian healing system dating back 5000 years. If you are willing to participate fully in your holistic healing journey, you can sleep soundly without the use of drugs.

I’ve developed my own step by step process to overcoming insomnia using the timeless wisdom of Ayurveda.  I can teach you how to integrate these principles to cultivate better sleep and better physical and emotional well being through a number of products.  Maybe one of them is right for you.
