What is fat? An essential part of the human diet, fat is important for good…
Kia ora, I’m Hannah – a mum, nurse & passionate women’s wellness advocate.
My business, A Nourishing Notion, was created organically as a result of my personal experience with overcoming poor health after the birth of my second child. Unfortunately conventional medicine couldn’t do a thing for me – everything was “normal” from a medical perspective; so I decided to take my health into my own hands and began to read, research and trial many different diets and healing modalities.
My business exists to empower women to lead their most vibrant lives through nutrition, lifestyle guidance, spirituality & herbal support. I believe that we are more adaptable than we give ourselves credit for; and with conscious effort we can establish life-changing habits which enable us to cultivate a life of pleasure and vitality.
Life = changed
My life changed somewhat after becoming a mother and suffering with my health, yes. I had to reinvent myself for sure. It was a trying time. But nothing comes close to the change I experienced when I nursed my beautiful mum Alison until her passing in June 2020. Needless to say breast cancer prevention is another important facet of what I do, I promote all things anti-cancer where ever possible.
The one thing that has had the most profound impact on my health is whole food plant based (WFPB) nutrition. I’ve since discovered its place in the medical world as a key component of Lifestyle Medicine.
In the process of becoming a plant-based-eater, I also found a love for my kitchen. Cooking and creating is therapeutic for me. You can check out my recipes on my blog, including my popular brownie recipe, here.
My journey also led me to Byron Bay company Superfeast. My all time favourite product (and that of my beautiful customers) is Jing. A blend of adaptogenic herbs and cordyceps medicinal mushroom, Jing is beneficial in cultivating a steady energy and promoting resilience to stress. It is hugely nourishing to the adrenal glands and assisted me in overcoming adrenal fatigue and postnatal depletion.
I absolutely love to write about all things wellness, and a favourite topic of mine is longevity and ageing well, read more about it here.
I currently offer a 1:1 wellness programme, supporting women to achieve vibrancy in their everyday lives using nutrition, hydration, sleep, stress management, exercise, spirituality, adaptogenic herbs and medicinal mushrooms. This role is deeply fulfilling to me on every level.
