BEE YOU BEE FREE
By Chantel Gough
Knowing that there are more pillars to health than movement, I embarked on a journey into the world of Functional Medicine.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Functional Medicine, it involves investigating underlying biological mechanisms or the root cause that can contribute to your health problem.
It is fixing the problem from the inside out rather than from outside in, as is the case for conventional medicine which focuses on diseases and symptoms.
I truly believe that when we create the right environment for our own unique self does our health and happiness flourish.
My partner, is my biggest supporter and is the catalyst for my transition from a mediocre life with health complaints to a life of strong purpose, passion, happiness and health. Together we have a dream to make a difference in peoples lives.
Health is a journey, not a one month detox or a six week bootcamp. It is a daily commitment to make choices that serve you for the better.
The choice is not always the easy option but each time it is important to always remind yourself of the ‘why’ behind your actions.
It might be leaving an unhappy relationship, saying no to that delicious donut, getting out of your cosy bed to go for a morning walk or swapping your coffee for a soul soothing tea – my pick would be a Bees Knees Teas. I’m actually a big “BEE Clear” fan – It’s packed with antioxidants and brain stimulating herbs and a refreshing pepperminty flavour.
