I’M ON A MISSION TO HELP YOU ROCK MIDLIFE

Did you ever stop to think that we are what we eat and drink and do and think and feel? Each and every one these things make up who we are and contributes to the outcome of our lives – whether we’re happy, whether we’re well, whether we’re surrounded by love and laughter.

YOUOLOGY. IT’S ABOUT RADIANCE. IT’S ABOUT VITALITY. IT’S ABOUT TRANSFORMATION. 

Jenna Moore

Hi, I’m Jenna

I’m so glad you’re here. To give you a bit of background I come from a 20-year background as a magazine beauty and wellbeing editor. I’ve worked with Next magazine, Notebook:, Women’s Health, Style, Fitness Life and New Idea. I also co-authored a book back in 2005 called In The Pink: a guide to breasts, cancer and living well with the beautiful naturopath Lani Lopez.

HEALTH

I’ve always been passionate about wellness and helping people to figure out the why’s and wherefore’s of life. The science of beauty is my career roots so you’ll always find the study of the skin health in anything I do. However, I’ve always known there’s another side to life as I had two sisters who died of Cystic Fibrosis disease and I’ve struggled with yo-yo weight and overactive hormones all my life. 

Q

BURNOUT

I stopped working in magazines full-time back in 2011 and founded Gorgeousosity, a popular lifestyle website. On advice, I reluctantly re-branded to Gems of Gorgeousness, which was a massive undertaking both energy-wise and financially. When I began experiencing anxiety, dizzy spells, fatigue, weight loss, and sleeplessness I put it down to burn out. Eventually, I was diagnosed with pulmonary emboli (multiple lung clots). Six months later I learned the clots were 24 hours away from cutting off the oxygen/blood supply to my heart. Eek! It was the beginning of chronic pain and suspected autoimmune disease, which culminated in weeks in bed. Even the weight of the bedclothes was excruciating. Can you imagine that?!  I’m not telling you this to enlist your sympathy, I just wanted you to know that I’ve been there, bought the t-shirt and can transfer lessons learned to you.

NEW BEGINNINGS

The experience led me to study with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York City. The impetus was to broaden my knowledge, try to cure myself through nutrition and answer the ‘why’s’ of my experience and be able to help others. It’s been an incredible journey. I’ve learned that everyone is a bio-individual and what is one person’s cure-all is another person’s poison. I firmly believe food is Mother Nature’s medicine and I’m totally with Hippocrates who said ‘Let food be thy medicine’. 

LET FOOD BE THY MEDICINE

Food-wise, I’ve always been semi-vegetarian, but after one lecture we had with Sir Paul McCartney I knew I would never touch meat again. That doesn’t mean you have to go that route, but it’s what works for me. I gave up grains for a while too which was magical for the pain, but it’s difficult sustaining it. Coffee, wine, sugar and processed foods all trigger my symptoms. I’ve learned that whole foods aren’t just a fad – it’s totally true that our 21st Century diets are destructive. However, I also know that never having mainstay treats again is tricky (though it gets much easier). I used to believe in the 80/20 rule, which I’ve altered a little to the 90/10 rule (90% follow the rules/10% rebel). The amazing thing is the healthier you eat, the less you want to rebel.

MIND, BODY & SOUL

These days I’m a skin health aficionado (that knowledge will always be there) and Certified Holistic Health & Happiness Coach (proud moment). My ethos is plant-based with an onus on helping people in midlife. If you’ve got weight issues, an autoimmune disease, are struggling with stress (who doesn’t right?!) I can help you!

IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU

Now that you know my story you’ll ‘get’ that if you have issues with emotional eating, significant life changes or need help balancing those pesky mid-life hormones, I’m your woman. Fact. Mid-life does not have to mean weight gain. It also doesn’t have to mean skin problems or the blues. When we work together you will transform and I’m here for you right through your journey. You can always reach me on Skype, via email or in person so don’t hesitate to reach out.

Sound good?
