Nutrition is key, nourish your body on a cellular level. Eat better and feel better.

The mind-body connection: How you think and feel is linked to the health of your body structurally, your mind emotionally and your cells biochemically. Healing your emotional state can be like turning the tap off at the cause of an imbalance, leading to a new interpretation of your surroundings.

Flow state: A connected being can see obstacles as opportunities, achieving a higher understanding and the science behind the flow state where alignment in your inner and outer worlds become effortless and the body finds homeostasis.

BOOK AMANDA for a speech at your workplace or event

 Amanda shares her diagnosis of MS that led to her being paralysed, how she recovered and founded 2 businesses in the process.



Your psychology becomes your biology. How you think and feel is a mirror image of how you’ll interpret your reality, how you react to things and whether success is effortless for you.

Change your mind and change your life: learn to see obstacles as opportunities.

As an MS Ambassador for MS Limited, my role is to raise awareness about MS in the community and simply educate, motivate and advocate.

I hope to make a difference in people’s lives and help others deal with managing the mental and physical symptoms of MS, and any setback in life.
