Welcome to Unity Wellness by Nyree Yali 😀
I’m based in Tasmania’s gorgeous Huon Valley where I live on a couple of acres with my husband, our two daughters, six cats, three guinea pigs, two chooks & countless wild critters.
As a child, I was often sick with asthma, allergies, eczema, bronchitis, etc, as were my younger siblings. Add to that a family history of depression, cancer, endocrine issues & more & you can begin to understand why we joke we have a ‘cesspool’ rather than a gene pool!
I was on a cruise after finishing high school & I had an epiphany – I needed to study Naturopathy. I needed to know there was a better way to health to prevent the next generation from suffering the same maladies. After finishing the course, I went on to manage a clinic South of Adelaide. A couple of years later, I moved to Tasmania with plans to open my own clinic, but life took another direction.
My eldest daughter was born in 2005 & I knew I did not want to return to working for someone else while she was young. As it turns out, she did not want to go anywhere either & for various reasons, we decided home education was the best option for her. We were trying to provide her with a much-longed for younger sibling, but experienced some losses. After about a year of focused lifestyle changes, I was healthier than ever and conceived our youngest daughter, who was born in the middle of the home we’d built ourselves.
A month after her 2nd birthday, I started having random seizures. Tests showed there was nothing that was going to significantly affect my life expectancy, so I turned to chiropractic care & an integrative doctor. It was confirmed I have pyroluria & MTHFR mutations, which I’d long suspected. Between regular visits to the chiro, appropriate supplementation & focusing on self care (AKA “putting on your own oxygen mask before helping others”), I was soon seizure-free & able to function again. It really brought home the importance of good nutrition & a balanced lifestyle – the unity of all aspects of life that bring about a state of wellness.
With that, an old school friend sent me a message inviting me to learn about ‘making food your medicine’. I agreed begrudgingly as although I’d been asking the Universe for ways of reducing our financial stress, I certainly wasn’t looking to do anything that may impact my recovery. By the end of that call, I thought, “Holy crap (or an exclamation to that effect)! This is going to be awesome & is too good NOT to be involved!”. However, it took me a couple of days of mulling over the yays & nays before deciding to take on this new business venture that I could do from home and that was the culmination of all I’d been through & learnt.
So here I am now, acutely focused on wellness, abundance & community – both for myself & those I come into contact with. I’ll be sharing information, recipes & product reviews to help you make choices for your own family. I look forward to getting to know you more via my Facebook page, via Instagram, or you can send me an email if you want more info about anything you see.
Yours in good health,
