Hello & Welcome!
I’m Nadege – Naturopathic Health Advisor and general lover of all things natural/eco/green! ‘PINEAPPLE SAGE’ is my business/baby! A working progress for a self-confessed technophobe. Anyway, I thought I’d start by sharing a bit about my views/approach…
Mission (Not Impossible I hope!)
My ‘mission’ with this site/job/blog is to:
Share the Plant Love! Introduce you (my readers) to some of the natural wonders of this world, specifically in regards to medicinal plants and beneficial foods. I’d like to think I can encourage a re-connection to & a renewed trust in nature… This is nothing new, we humans have been doing this for a long long time. We’ve just forgotten a fair bit lately. I’d say it’s high time we get back to our roots 😉
Promote a more Integrative, Holistic Healthcare System – one that improves upon the existing ‘drug-only’ mindset. I can only dream of the day that hospitals start making better use of nutrition and offering herbal medicines/aromatherapy as options, as they do in some countries already…
Protect our Environment – walk the walk, by trying to live a bit more consciously and sharing what I learn along the way. I’m not perfect but I’m trying! After all ‘health’ not only refers to personal health – but also to environmental health/planetary health as a whole – all is interwoven. It’s simple – you can’t have healthy people on an unhealthy planet. End of.
Positivity! Explore ‘Community Projects’ & share with you some inspiring initiatives from around the globe. Small efforts add up to big changes and collectively we can make a difference for the better.
To sum up (& running the risk of sounding like a total hippy – unashamedly!) but I’m a true believer in the healing power of nature and the importance of sustainable living. Above all I’m just really happy to be able to share my journey with you via my blog. I’ve also added an additional section: ‘Resources and Links’ for more info, should you wish to dig deeper. So please do have a wander around.
Natural Health Consultations – Cornwall
How can I help you personally? Whilst I love sharing info on my blog, for more targeted health-help, I also offer 1:1 Naturopathy Consultations. The therapies I use include Nutrition, Herbal Medicine and Massage Therapy. For more information about these individual therapies and to give you an idea of the general consultation process, please click on the tabs under ‘Natural Health’.
At the moment, I am based in the Truro area, Cornwall, UK. Though I am currently only able to offer consultations in person, in the future I also hope to expand my tech savviness to Skype Consultations! For general enquiries or to make a booking (or just to say hello!) please don’t be shy, do send me an email and I will try my best to get back to you asap
