The story of Rose & Soul is held close to my heart as trial and error, and the tribulations I have endured, have all lead me to the two things I have grown to be so passionate about: food and the human body. Good old fashioned, fresh healthy food. Free from pesticides and nutritious to the human body and mind. Natural substances from the earth, which remain essentially unaltered from their original form.
Sharing my experience is not intended as medical advice in any way. I am simply relating my own body’s response to various foods and therapies after losing my large bowel to cancer – and the new path I have chosen to take.
The loss of such an important part of my body has affected my immune system, my ability to absorb and retain water, vitamins and minerals. It has affected my mental and emotional wellbeing (temporarily) and there have been many other related complications and issues. I felt so desperate to find a solution to improve my quality of life.
My journey with food and supplements began after several years of searching for a way to improve my health by providing my body and mind with essential nutrients. More so than a person with a fully functioning bowel, I needed a constant supply to help build my immune system. I need food that can stay in my system long enough to be absorbed and have an affect.
The food and other products I endorse and sell on this website are products that I personally use. Each product listing includes a description of the benefits I have personally experienced.
My life has changed in so many ways since I started my quest to resume a normal life. My purpose now is to travel to the far reaches of the world and seek out traditional foods and remedies for the body and soul. I intend to try and find those that work for me, in the hope that they may work for you too. I hope to share more of my journey with you as I go along.
