I’m an accredited Clinical Nutritionist with a focus on getting to the root cause of symptoms and http://kirstiehowardlivingwell.com.au/wp-admin/post.php?post=13&action=trash&_wpnonce=a7363a1891helping people feel better from the inside out. I love using wholefoods and lifestyle changes that are accessible to everyone and easy to implement with a step by step, methodical approach.
But I haven’t always been a nutritionist. Oh no. I worked for 15 years in the corporate world, living on takeaways, alcohol and stress that finally, and not surprisingly, led to a diagnosis of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis in my early 30s. At that time, I felt twice my age and with no energy, inability to handle stress of any kind, crying at the drop of a hat and terrible memory and mental function. All I wanted to do was sleep! Can you relate? It was also around this time that I was diagnosed with endometriosis.
Fast forward a couple of years and, with a quite bit of research and a big turnaround in my diet and lifestyle choices, I was able to bring back a quality of life I had never actually experienced before. And it was this that inspired me to go back to college to study the biological and physiological mechanisms behind how this happened, and to learn how to help others implement these changes. During this time I also became a mum!
Due to my background, I have a special interest in anti-inflammatory diets (including the Autoimmune Protocol or AIP) and inflammatory conditions such as:
- Autoimmune diseases, including Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Female reproductive disorders, such as Endometriosis and PCOS
- Gut disorders, including bloating, IBS and IBD
- Skin disorders, including Psoriasis, Eczema and Rosacea
- Associated symptoms, such as fatigue, brain fog, anxiety, stress
