I’m Rebecca Rowe, a Results Driven Cleanse Strategist and Holistic Nutritionist, based on the Sunshine Coast and Founder of The Cleanse Shop.
My aim is to help people LIVE THEIR BEST LIFE by restoring physical and emotional balance, right down to each and every cell. I’m super passionate in bringing awareness of the life changing benefits regular cleansing has and the vital role it plays in healing and transforming your whole body; physically, emotionally, nutritionally and energetically………as I always say……
”Take care of your body and cleanse regularly – it’s the only place you have to live”.
MY STORY OF SICKNESS
I had a typical western type upbringing. Meat and three veg for dinner, packaged foods in lunch boxes, took antibiotics when I got sick, grew up in the era when eating fat was seen to be the devil.
My early adult years were lived fast paced, fast food, no exercise, smoking, drinking, partying, and generally paying no attention to my health whatsoever.
Fast forward to age 29 and fell pregnant, had a miscarriage, followed by a second miscarriage, then again by a third miscarriage. Not being able to achieve my maternal desire to have children sent me into a downward spiral of depression and addiction. I went through a period of time where I spent most time on the couch watching TV and generally only left the house for work and grocery shopping, and always had an excuse ready so I didn’t have to show up for anything more.
I sought advice from my GP and had all the available tests done to which no “diagnosis” could be found. I was wished the best of luck, offered a script for anti-depressants and sent on my way. Seriously, this actually happened.
In a sad way emotionally and physically, I am grateful for listening to my intuition that anti-depressants were not the answer, threw the script in the bin, and researched more natural ways to address the issues.
A freshwater river in Morocco where I became host to a severe parasite infection that went undiagnosed for over 10 years.
MY ROAD TO RECOVERY AND WELLNESS
Twelve months of time was invested in seeing a Naturopath regularly where we uncovered hormonal imbalance, adrenal fatigue, food intolerance, gut damage and inflammation to name a few. Put simply, my body was too imbalanced to carry a pregnancy.
From significant lifestyle changes, I welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world, and two years after that identical twin girls arrived and completed our perfect little family. All in all, life was amazing but as time went on, more symptoms began to emerge; mood swings, acne, bloating, bladder discomfort, pain, insomnia. At first, I thought it was just because I was a busy sleep deprived mum, though my intuition again led me to believe there must be deeper reasons that needed attention.
After extensive research, I began working with an integrative doctor and a session of kinesiology confirmed my suspicions – I was host to a large parasitic infection. The parasite itself is generally only found in a few places around the world, one of those places being Morocco, where I had traveled at the age of 25.
The photo is of me in a freshwater river in Morocco literally being infected by the parasite yet I had no idea (also carrying more weight back then too!).
I wasn’t diagnosed with the parasite until 10 years later at age 35. The parasite is what triggered a lot of my symptoms and damage to the body. It is a long journey to recover and heal, but one that has been fascinating, frustrating, eye-opening and exciting all rolled into one amazing experience we know as life. The introduction of various detox protocols had been a missing piece of the puzzle toward regaining my physical and mental health.
Looking back, I had been living in a state of chronic stress – worrying about things, not eating properly, not sleeping well, not exercising, having a negative mindset about most things. I didn’t address my symptoms…… they addressed me.
Since then I have dramatically changed my life path and now have so much gratitude for life. The easiest way to explain the hourney is that I used to live life in a SURVIVE mode, and after cleansing and healing I now THRIVE in life.
This is just a small part of my story.
We all have a story in life and as it unfolds there is often times of pain and suffering as part of the journey.
Regular cleansing of physical and emotional toxins is the most effective way to heal through the times of imbalance.
