As well as an experienced journalist, Lowri is also a trained hypnotherapist and nutritionist. She offers combined programmes using a range of techniques and I'm going to be testing one out!
I met Lowri on Wednesday to discuss my general health and to decide on an appropriate programme. I was also hypnotised (briefly). It was just like the lying down bit at the end of a yoga lesson where you go all sleepy and fuzzy. Very relaxing.
Next week I'll be picking up the various supplements I'm going to be taking to sort out my irritated tummy and other ailments. 'At least six' apparently: listen for the rattle! I'll also be given a diet programme and a list of foods to avoid (wheat, milk, nightshade vegetables – so far!) I'll be undergoing regular hypnosis with Lowri, as well as listening to hypnotherapy cds in bed at night.
So, what will all this supplementing and hypnotising and intolerance-avoiding achieve? Well, that's what I'll be reporting. It has been suggested that I video blog. Terrifying prospect but I'll give it a go.
I'll link to the site when my first blog's up so you can see what I'm up to. There may be some crying over pieces of half-eaten toast etc. I love bread! I'm going to be loitering in the gluten-free aisle at Tesco with an annoyed expression. Hopefully at the end of it all I will be lighter, have more energy and better skin. Stay tuned to find out!
