I'M A MOTHER. FORMER CORPORATE CLIMBER. QUALIFIED NUTRITIONIST.
I’m the first to admit burnout and postnatal depletion is not fun. I've been through both.
In my years of juggling being a mother and working, I learnt that when you don’t make time to rest, your body decides when to rest for you — usually at a pretty inconvenient time. Safe to say, I fell off that ladder fast.
I had two babies under two, going back to work, working 16 hours a day, struggling to fall asleep, and developing a pretty toxic relationship (with my inbox). It didn’t just impact me mentally, but physically too — blood tests don’t lie.
The tests I did with Dr Oscar Serrallach, a pioneer for integrative treatment of postnatal depletion, reflected depletion in key vitamins and minerals, which results in digestion challenges, low mood & anxiety, lack of sleep, skin breakouts, and the list goes on.
I wasn’t able to relax (even mid-bubble bath), because I was in a constant state of stress. Fight or flight? My body chose both.
Under Dr Oscar Serrallach’s guidance, I finally took time off to recover, which allowed me the space to dream of a better mental and physical state.
After experiencing life-altering results with depletion specialist Dr Oscar Serrallach, my solo health journey soon became a bigger one with an unwavering mission: help other women avoid what I went through.
We here to change the narrative that just because you are a mum, you have to accept exhaustion as the norm.
So, what is the Tenth?
Vitamins, minerals & herbs for a sunnier state of mind.
A destination to cultivate the lighter side of life. Not an escape from reality — no, we’re very much a part of it — but something complementary, that helps us accept all of it: the ebbs and flows, the ups and downs, the light and dark. I believe that’s what makes up life. But sometimes when life falls out of balance; we fall out of balance, too.
Starting with scientifically-proven formulations and natural supplements to help us find our flow — they holistically complement our attempts at a healthier, albeit chaotic, lifestyle.
What’s next for me? Let's see, for now, I’m here and I’m excited to share my story — if it helps 100,000 people or even just one person, it's been all worth it.
Lots of love,
