Hello there, I’m Kate and I’m passionate about the health of myself, my family and YOU!
I started this blog as an incentive to eat only anti-inflammatory foods. And I’m sharing it, to inspire you to do the same.
When I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism two decades ago, nobody told me if I changed my diet and lifestyle, I might change my diagnosis. After I had my first baby more symptoms arrived but still I was expected to take medication and get on with my life.
When I went through the trauma of seeing my brother die of cancer several years ago, my health took a nose-dive. Before long I was experiencing extreme joint pain and stiffness, panic attacks, heartburn, brain fog, heart palpitations, fatigue, crippling anxiety, depression, and Raynaud’s syndrome. The pain and symmetrical swelling on my thumbs and wrists was enough to stop me from my passion - knitting. My health was on a rapid downward spiral with one symptom after another and I'm convinced I was starting to struggle with Rheumatoid Arthritis, which my grandmother had severely. I didn’t fancy waiting around for that to happen so I took my health into my own hands and consulted Dr Google. That’s when I found, and started, the Autoimmune Protocol. And honestly, it turned out to be the best decision I ever made as all those symptoms are history now!
I want you to know that you don't need to live with the signs and symptoms of poor digestion, hormone imbalance and chronic disease. It’s no fun for you and it also impacts on your friends and family who care about you. Once you make your health a priority, healing IS possible and I can show you how. My mission is to set you on a health journey that continues in the right direction.
I’m a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Restorative Wellness Practitioner, Certified AIP Coach, Certified Gluten Practitioner, trained Chef and author of The Autoimmune Protocol Reintroduction Cookbook. I work one-on-one with people just like you to improve digestion, curb cravings, balance blood sugar regulation and hormones, and kick your symptoms to the curb. I'll help you discover your food sensitivities and make you feel the vibrant person you deserve to be.
How can I help you? I can guide and support you to change your life for the better, by incorporating real food and lifestyle as medicine. I can help you navigate the Autoimmune Protocol, reintroduce the foods you love, and troubleshoot where necessary. I'll empower you to make peace with yourself and learn to love food (and life) again, while helping you to heal. It can be done!
