In a world where 1 in every 10 women grapples with the challenges of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), Carine's journey began at a tender age of 15 when she received her PCOS diagnosis. Like many others, she was prescribed the birth control pill as a mean to manage the relentless symptoms that accompanied this condition. However, as the years passed, Carine found herself confronted with an additional battle: fibroids and excruciatingly heavy periods, creating a perfect storm that threatened to consume her daily life.
Faced with this daunting adversity, Carine made a life-altering decision. Rather than surrender to the overwhelming impact of these conditions, she chose to embark on a transformative path of self-discovery and empowerment. It was in this moment of decision that she resolved to enrol in a Naturopathic college, determined to learn everything she could about the intricate ways in which her body functioned.
For four relentless years, Carine immersed herself in the world of naturopathy and herbal medicine, tirelessly absorbing knowledge, and honing her skills. Her goal was clear: to regain control of her own body and ultimately help countless others do the same. As the days turned into weeks, the weeks into months, and the months into years, her dedication and perseverance saw her through the most challenging of times.
Finally, in 2018, the fruits of her labour came to fruition. Carine achieved that elusive breakthrough she had long sought, not only for herself but for the countless women worldwide who yearned for the same. The experience was so profound that it ignited a passion within her that would set the course for the rest of her life.
With the fire of her newfound knowledge and the compassion born from her personal struggles, and now a qualified naturopath and herbalist Carine embarked on a mission that transcended her own well-being. She opened her own naturopathic practice, aptly named 'The Healing Tree of Life,' where she began crafting customized herbal blends and nutritional protocols designed to empower women with PCOS, fibroids, and fertility challenges to reclaim their lives. Her practice became a sanctuary for those in need, a place where healing and hope intermingled, and where the impossible became possible.
Two years later, in 2020, Carine's unwavering commitment to the wellness and fertility of women reached a new zenith. She introduced the world to the Womb herbal tea range, a collection of meticulously crafted blends that harnessed the power of nature to support the journey toward well-being. With this range, Carine was not just offering remedies; she was delivering a lifeline to women who had long struggled in silence.
Fast forward to 2023, and Carine's impact on the lives of thousands is immeasurable. Her journey, from the depths of personal despair to the pinnacles of professional success, has seen her touch the lives of countless women, each one a testament to the resilience of the human spirit.
