MEET SUSAN KINGSTON
I grew up in a small town with young parents who were not aware of natural heath solutions, and followed the general medical recommendations made by the doctor. As a young child I was sick with sore throats at least 3 times a year and took antibiotics each time. As a teenager I became sick with severe and chronic stomach pain and bloating. By the time I was in my twenties it had gotten so bad that I would bloat up to the point of looking 3 months pregnant, and I had hormonal issues with strong mood swings. I had to do something because it was becoming intolerable. Doctors had told me I had "IBS", my problem would never go away, and I would just have to take Metamucil every day and bear it. No doctor ever asked me what I was eating! I became more and more sick and I was feeling hopeless.
When I was 22, my friend’s mother bought a health food store, and started to educate me on holistic ways of healing. This opened a door to a new way of living for me, diet changes, lifestyle changes, supplements, balancing body, mind, emotions--- and I never turned back.
I bought that health food store where I learned more and more through the Alive Nutrition Course, a lot of independent studying and many mentors, as I ‘healed’ myself from my disorders. My health only got better as I learned more and continued on this path.
Over the years, I was able to help many people in my community, but as time went on I came to conclusion that for me the best way I could help people is by educating and supporting them with closer contact and more consistent follow ups. Therefore I decided to dedicate myself to helping people in this way full time.
I studied and graduated with high honours at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, and have commited to sharing what I have learned on my own journey to help people to live a much healthier, happier life free from chronic illnesses, depression, anxiety and many other disorders that have come with our typical modern day living. I am a member of the Association of Naturopaths of Quebec, and give receipts for insurance. I offer my services via Zoom or phone -- less in person since the beginning of Covid, but possible.
Now, as I have evolved over the years, my mission is to enrich lives by offering people the keys to unlock the door to their mental/emotional clarity and health and physical balance through optimal individualized nutrition, essential oils, micro-nutrients and a holistic lifestyle..
