In this guest blog we are excited to collaborate with Simone Thomas of Simone Thomas Wellness. We hope you enjoy reading the inspiring journey that led to the creation of Simone Thomas Wellness.
The birth of Simone Thomas Wellness came from a really private place and years of hard work in my wellness clinics. You can listen to so much more of my life story on my Podcast “Living Life Well” or for a very quick overview carry on reading...
Simone Thomas Wellness was fueled by this mission of my own personal lows as well as the clients that had ever crossed our doors for help and support within my wellness clinics I owned within the UK. To understand the driving force behind my vision, it's important to introduce myself and share my personal journey.
I have dedicated years of hard work to become a leading expert in hair loss consultation, nutrition, and overall wellness advisor within the UK. This path was set in motion by my own battle with a serious illness.
Like many others, my health struggles began early in life. I was diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), which not only led to physical discomfort but also triggered my first experiences with hair loss. Chronic fatigue, cramping, bloating, and extreme weight fluctuations accompanied these symptoms, significantly impacting both my physical and mental well-being.
At the age of 21, while pursuing a career in modeling, I was diagnosed with abnormal cervical cells and B12 deficiency. Although determined not to let this diagnosis hinder my dreams, the prescribed medication and the stress I was under caused my hair to shed at an alarming rate.
As many of you know, hair loss can be a devastating experience. Despite using various hairpieces and wigs daily and nightly, I couldn't escape feeling unattractive, which shattered my confidence.
Fortunately, an early diagnosis through a smear test led to the timely removal of the abnormal cervical cells before they progressed into something more serious. Studies show that when cervical cancer is detected early, the survival rate exceeds 95% for five years or more, compared to only 5 in 100 women when diagnosed at a later stage (Cancer Research UK). Unfortunately, not everyone is fortunate enough to receive an early diagnosis.
Shockingly, last year, it was reported in 2019 that around 3 million women in England neglected to have a smear test in the past three and a half years. The importance of regular screenings cannot be emphasized enough. In fact, in the UK alone, approximately 2,000 cervical cancer deaths are prevented each year through cervical screenings (Cancer Research UK).
Although I underwent an operation to remove the cancerous cells, it provided little relief for my symptoms. This prompted me to dive into the world of diet and nutrition, seeking ways to alleviate my discomfort from within.
By committing to an anti-inflammatory diet recommended by a nutritionist, I began to experience improvements. My hair regained its fullness and thickness, and I noticed a reduction in fatigue and skin issues. This inspired me to delve deeper into the connection between diet, nutrition, and hair health, as well as overall well-being. I passionately studied how a nutrient-rich diet and appropriate supplementation can transform hair growth, texture, and condition. While I don't claim to possess all-encompassing wellness wisdom, I'm proud to have earned qualifications in nutrition and weight loss management. My promise to myself was to share this newfound knowledge with others, empowering them to embark on a journey towards a happier and healthier lifestyle.
In 2011 I opened my first wellness clinic and salon "Simone Thomas Salon” I then went on to open two additional clinics one in Berkshire and one in London which provided a warm and inviting sanctuary where individuals could receive professional guidance and discover expertly sourced hair loss solutions and nutrient advice with my dedicated team. Witnessing our clients regain their confidence and achieve tangible results through our services was truly remarkable.
This experience highlighted the importance of making this invaluable information accessible to a wider audience. Thus, Simone Thomas Wellness was born years later. Through this platform, we offer tips and guidance on everything from exercise and diet to skin, gut, hair health, along with a range of award winning science backed supplements to support optimal nutrition and well-being for men and woman. My time spent researching the physical and mental benefits of a nourishing diet made me realize that our health, well-being, and lifestyle are all within our control. And the same goes for each and everyone of us.
