Hi, I’m Hannah. After completing a degree in business in 2002 and working in the corporate and non-profit world for many years, in 2015 I began a new career path and followed my dreams!
I commenced a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine) degree and in a year or so I’ll be a qualified Clinical Nutritionist. I then plan on spending my days helping people find the right way of eating for their body that will help them achieve their health goals.
From my late 20’s and into my 30’s I began to focus on my health, before that I could do whatever I wanted, including eating and drinking whatever I wanted to, partying, staying up late and doing little exercise. Then coupled with a stressful job and stressful life situations, this lifestyle began to take a toll on my health and I sought for ways to improve my health, in a natural way.
I tried lots of dietary changes but I was still tired all the time, I still had asthma and hay fever, I still needed afternoon pick-me-ups (lots of sugar), I still had aches and pains, I still had skin issues and I still had food intolerances and digestive problems.
I then stumbled across the Whole30 a few years ago and it was the catalyst for real change, after most of my issues improved I embraced a whole food way of eating and I began making real changes to my lifestyle. But my digestive system was still struggling. You can read all about that here.
Throughout the process of healing and managing my gut issues, I learnt a lot about my body and I began to see major improvements in my health.
After all of this experimentation, I now follow a way of eating that is right for my unique body and my life experiences, and it is always evolving but it has always been about reaching a point of good gut health, because good health begins with the digestive system.
I hope this blog can provide you with inspiration to help you on your health journey.
