Living with chronic illness can be overwhelming and make you feel hopeless and alone. Roughly 120,000 individuals in New Zealand are estimated to be living with endometriosis. 
 
Do you wish you had someone knowledgeable to talk to who could walk you through all the conflicting information and find the path that’s right for you?
 
Using my unique Health Engineering approach, I consider your unique history, personality, lifestyle, and existing habits. Together, we will build a life-long plan built for your real life to help you heal and thrive in life again. 

There is hope! I can help you. You are not alone. 

"Your pain is NOT normal!"

Endometriosis is a complex condition, it involves tissue similar to the lining of the uterus growing outside the uterus, often leading to severe symptoms such as pelvic pain, especially during menstruation, painful intercourse, bowel problems, and in some cases, sub-fertility or infertility.and there is no one-size-fits-all solution. That's why I take a holistic approach to your well-being, considering your unique needs, symptoms, and goals. With my expertise in functional nutrition and lifestyle coaching, I aim to provide you with the tools and knowledge to manage your endometriosis effectively.

My Approach

Empowerment through Knowledge

Knowledge is power, and I believe that understanding your body is the first step to healing. I’ll work closely with you to educate you about the connections between your diet, lifestyle, and endometriosis symptoms. My goal is to help you make informed choices that lead to relief of pain and symptoms and an improved quality of life.

Lifestyle Coaching

Stress management, exercise, and sleep play vital roles in managing endometriosis. Our lifestyle coaches will work with you to create a tailored plan that promotes relaxation, movement, and rest, all of which can positively impact your well-being.

Nutritional Guidance

Endometriosis and your diet are closely linked, and the right foods can make a big difference! I’m here to guide you through creating a personalised dietary plan that’s just for you. Together, we’ll focus on anti-inflammatory and hormone-balancing foods that can not only help reduce your pain and discomfort but also support your overall well-being.

Ongoing Support

You’re not alone on this journey. I’m here to provide continuous support and encouragement as you make positive changes in your life. 

Don't let endo control your life any longer​

About Me

HELEN CROSS
FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION AND LIFESTYLE PRACTITIONER

Masters of Science in Health Coaching, Doctorate in Engineering
I am passionate about helping people transform their health by transforming their diet and lifestyle.
 
I have lived through my own health healing journey where I underwent five surgeries for endometriosis and adenomyosis, including a hysterectomy. My gynecologist predicted I would need surgery every 12-18 months for the rest of my life. Due to making changes to my diet and lifestyle, I have improved my health greatly. I have had no endometriosis surgeries for the last 15 years and no endo pain for the last five years.
 
I am a Certified Functional Nutrition and Lifestyle Practitioner and also hold a Masters of Science in Health Coaching, Doctorate in Engineering, and have completed an extensive number of advanced courses in transforming health from leading functional nutritionists, functional medicine doctors and wellness coaching specialists in North America.
 
I am New Zealand’s first Wahls Certified Health Practitioner. (having completed specialist training in healing diets for autoimmune conditions).

My three fundamentals for transforming your health

1. There are many root causes to your symptoms

Alzheimer’s researcher Dr. Dale Bredesen coined the term “36 holes in the roof” to describe chronic illness. There are many factors influencing your health conditions, and we need to address them all. There is no single pill or protocol that will help you get well. We need to find all the holes in your roof, and plug as many of them as we’re able.

2. Bio-individuality

2. Bio-individuality

You are uniquely you. Your physiology, and your symptoms are the way they are today because of a lifetime of unique factors which are singular to you. You do not fit into a formula. You are not a statistic. You are an individual with a particular history, body, and lifestyle. You also have goals and dreams that are unique to you. We work with all of these factors to create a custom-made plan for you.

3. We will start with
your gut health!

The health of your gut determines your overall health, and 70% of your autoimmune cells reside in the gut. Interestingly, the biggest factors that influence the health of your gut are diet and lifestyle. To improve your immunity and overall health, we will focus on ways to improve your gut health.
