Bia Beo is a holistic health practice founded by Nutritional Therapist & Herbalist Rachael Jordan in 2014. The Bia Beo practice supports people on their journey of healing. With Rachaels knowledge, experience and passion for natural healing she helps guide her clients through the fog of confusion surrounding food choices, the cause of their symptoms, and the best plan of action to take for their particular issues. The aim is to help people get to know their own body and what works best for them.
The Bia Beo practice focuses on all aspects of a persons being to bring nourishment to the mind, body & soul. Everything in this life can feed us and nourish us; what we do, what we think & feel, and what we put into our body. The plants and foods we choose to use are alive and give us life force energy, effecting our mind, body & spirit.
Nutritional Therapy is holistic in its approach and is based on the concept that food can be a form of medicine. If optimum nutrition is obtained by the individual this can prevent illness or resolve health issues.
Nutrition is the foundation of good health. What we eat directly affects our health. Our food can effect us negatively and positively. What is most important is that we find a balance in life while striving to treat our body, mind & spirit with all the love and respect it deserves.
Nutrition is a vital part of life and fundamental to us as humans on the earth for our health, growth and wellbeing. Knowing what we need to sustain ourselves is a necessity for a healthy life.
Food affects us on all levels. Food directly effects our mood, our hormones, our energy, our thought process, our intelligence and much more. You literally are what you eat, right down to the cellular level.
Our body is really an amazing thing! If your body gets all the vital nutrients it needs it will be able to stay healthy and prevent disease.
Our body has a natural ability to heal. A great example of this is when you cut yourself, your blood clots at the site of the wound and forms a crust to close the wound and prevent infection.
Having the right nutrition enhances this ability. Our immune system fights off diseases much more effectively when our body has all the nutrients it needs.
In the Bia Beo practice we strive to impart this knowledge to our clients, empowering them to be able to take control of their own health. Helping clients to understand the impact of the food they eat and learning what kind of diet suit them best.
Everyone is so different, there is no one size fits all diet. It is a journey of discovery once we understand the impact food has on our body. Viewing nutrition in this holistic way allows you to connect more with your body helping you to know what balance is right for you.
Herbal Medicine is an ancient form of medicine, it is a plant based medicine and is the root of all medicine we have today but in its natural state. Preparations are made using the whole plant to make tinctures, creams, infusions, decoctions, vinegars, essential oils & ointments. Different preparations allow the body to take herbs in different ways to suit each need.
It is a very gentle yet powerful healing method. It’s a great aid for people who would prefer not to take pharmaceuticals and would like to take a more natural approach to their health care.
The plants connect with us on all levels and interact with all our bodies processes. We can directly rectify any miscommunication our bodies are having with any of our bodily & mental functions in a very gentle and natural way using herbal medicine.
This plant medicine does not override the body’s processes. Instead, it helps bring our body back into balance helping the shift into healing. It works best when we look at a person as a whole and pick the herbs that suits the person not the condition. This is the expertise you receive with a qualified Herbalist.
Herbs contain antioxidants, vitamins, minerals & many more amazing compounds that help our bodies to heal. They are so gentle to the body and yet so powerful, its no surprise why this ancient medicine has been passed down through generations and survived to this day.
Herbal Medicine and Nutritional Therapy techniques make a great team for healing the body naturally. One supports the other. Herbal medicine can give immediate results where needed and nutritional therapy lays the foundation and support to keep the body healthy long term.
Herbal Medicine is a great support and healing method for many chronic and stubborn conditions such as skin disorders, hormonal issues, infertility and even cancer. It is also an invaluable aid in acute conditions such as colds & flu and a more logical alternative to antibiotics in most cases.
Nutrition is the foundation of good health and herbs are the helper. Natural herbs give us the boost that we need to get us through tough times.
