Carmen outdoors - Simply Nourished | Food Coaching & Reiki, Melbourne VICHello friends!

 

My name’s Carmen and I’m a qualified Food Coach and Reiki Practitioner based in Melbourne. I have been on a quest to live a healthier lifestyle through meditation, yoga, Reiki, and healthy eating.

My own personal battle with illness led me on my journey to discover just how powerful food is in sustaining or destroying our health and wellbeing. My journey also led me to discover that our emotional state also plays an important role in our overall health.

I decided to create a blog out of my passion to inspire, support and empower those who want to improve and maintain their health through nutrition and Reiki.

My hope for my blog is that it be a supportive environment where you can discover something that will inspire and assist you on your own personal journey to health.

With love,

Carmen  xo
