Hello! Welcome to BitesizeHealth!
I’m Margaret Pardoe and I’m passionate about all aspects of Health – Mind, Body, Spirit and Emotion.
So why would you want to read on?
Well, because I’ve spent a very long time learning and researching, and often experiencing, everything I write about.
“Failed to thrive” as a baby, a sickly child, never invincible as a teenager or young adult, lost pregnancies, had cancer scares, raised two wonderful children, been a full-time carer, lived through divorce and bereavement, cheated on in life and love and business, faced financial ruin and recovered….
And diagnosed as “chronically sick and could expect to deteriorate”….
(I’m not and I haven’t!).
As an oncology nurse I dealt with a vast amount of sadness and death.
Then the dramatic contrast of happiness and new life as a midwife.
When allopathic medicine failed me personally, I became a naturopathic herbalist and iridologist.
And thereafter explored the world of mind/body healing through The Journey, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Non Personal Awareness (NPA). For several years was in practice as an Accredited Journey Practitioner.
A serial micropreneur, my first small business was at 11 years old. Then graduated with a BA(Hons) in Business Management and Entrepreneurship as a very mature student!
Kind of upside down!
And at the same time as all of this, having an amazing lifetime!
Sailed the seven seas and still exploring as much of this beautiful planet as possible!
Fun and laughter, fear and danger, fabulous highs and crashing lows.
More interesting and exciting than I could ever have dreamed of.
Everything has been used to learn and grow!
Leaving me with a wealth of knowledge and experience.
And hopefully with compassion, empathy, loving kindness and mindfulness.
All that I’ve learned, experienced and researched, I’ll share with you here!
