Today Sarah introduces you to her own personal Naturopath, Kat Blake from Invigorate Naturopathy to talk all things SLEEP.
Based in Perth, Kat specializes in Stress, Sleep, Anxiety and Fatigue. Kat’s been on her health journey with sleep and stress and anxiety issues, which is what sparked her interest in Naturopathy.
Sarah came to Kat, typical of most of Kat’s clients as sleep-deprived and stressed since giving birth to her first child some seven years prior. Sarah describes how she never had a problem falling asleep, but she’d often wake up incredibly early having only slept a few hours – and her fear of taking sleeping medication and being a complete, non-responsive zombie, and grumpy. Sarah also shares that she was terrified at first, Kat would instruct her to completely overhaul her life.
Since making minor but consistent changes to her lifestyle and health, Sarah shares how much she now treasures her morning coffee and enjoys every sip, and how much she appreciates Kat’s approach of taking people where they are at and supporting them from that place forward. Keep listening to hear Kat’s natural herbal recipes for a good night’s sleep, calm, and pain relief.
