Having never suffered from significant gut problems before, I had never really given much thought to gut health. During my studies to become a Naturopath, it was constantly talked about and I started to get a fascination for gut health and see the utmost importance for a healthy gut. Even for myself who had “no gut issues”, I started to notice things I hadn’t before. I noticed my skin breaking out when I ate more sugar, the bloating after pasta, the lethargy when my nutrition was lacking and so on.
After graduating as a Naturopath, I was constantly in contact with people chatting about health whether it be mental health, pregnancy, tiredness or many chronic diseases. I noticed that everyone had gut related symptoms, but many just thought that was a part of life. I started to realise I was unable to help these people with their health, without starting with their gut. My eyes were opened to the health of one’s gut being the foundation for their health.
As my passion grew, it became contagious to those around me, I wanted to help everyone. My sister Kristyn, my fellow traveller and foodie caught the bug. After struggling with gut issues since her teenage years we were adamant to fix her gut and as kids came along, we were just as passionate to see her kids be setup with a good foundation and address any gut issues that came along.
