“When it does feel vulnerable, that’s an indicator that it’s something that you really desire.” ~Samantha Mant
We have so much more insight into our own bodies and what works for us than anyone else…
Have you ever gotten health or healing advice from a doctor or other practitioner and felt like they just weren’t listening to you or believing you?
What if you could get high level intuitive health advice from a hip holistic healer with a strong clinical naturopathic background and hot pink (blue or purple) hair depending on the day?
What if she could guide you to get in touch with your own body’s natural cycles and biorhythms?
What if your treatment recommendations included food, herbs, flower essences and essential oils?
Today I’m bringing you a conversation with Australian naturopath, Samantha Mant. Working with Samantha is like learning about yourself through the kind advice and insight of a good friend who is super smart and wise. In fact, she’s so good at listening, that I talked about myself WAY too much in this interview and probably should have paid her for a consultation!
“Healing is a journey and I get to hold space for people, and I feel really honored.” ~Samantha Mant
