Thanks for dropping in!
I'm Allison, I'm a physiotherapist, and I started Forecast Wellness to add a small drop of accuracy to the tide of information welling on the internet. There's plenty of accurate information on the internet, of course, but there's plenty of misinformation as well. And it can be hard to tell the difference. I've been working in health for more than two decades and sometimes I struggle to tell the difference!
What sort of information can you expect from Forecast Wellness? Um... whatever takes my fancy? I'm a bit easily distracted.
Dangle a pretty sparkly course in neuroscience in front of me, and I find myself enthralled with brain health, the importance of sleep, and the psychology of Flow.
I sign up for an online symposium on postnatal recovery, and suddenly I'm all about social support for new mums, pelvic alignment after childbirth, and bladder recovery. And also... what new mums need to know about brain health, the importance of sleep, and the psychology of Flow. See a pattern forming there?
I'm now standing on the diving board of a course in supporting women towards and beyond menopause. It's going to take months (at least) to get through it - this is not a small topic! And then I don't know how long it will take me to turn the information into live workshops, or a menopause course to offer online. So I'd better get cracking and get a postnatal course up and running first!
I do have one course almost at launch point. It's about the vaginal microbiome - microbiomes are all the rage these days! I'll keep you posted on that.
