If you know me long enough, you’ll know that I’m all about helping people make positive changes in their lives, especially when it comes to their lifestyle.
How? Well, I take a biology-centered approach, looking at all aspects of your life, from what you eat to how you think.
My journey into this field started with a personal passion for holistic health. I’ve been there – feeling unwell, with all the medical tests showing “normal” results. It can be frustrating, right? That’s where I come in, helping folks who know something’s off but can’t quite find the answers. My work also extends to optimizing health, especially in the realm of mental health, tackling stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and exploring how plant medicines can ease your suffering.
Now, let’s talk about a big issue – preventable diseases. Australia, like many Western countries, is grappling with these. Lifestyle choices are a major culprit. You know the culprits: highly processed foods and too much alcohol. They’re driving up rates of diseases like cardiovascular issues, diabetes, obesity, and addiction. The good news is, these problems are often preventable and even reversible with some lifestyle tweaks.
When it comes to eating, I’m all about whole foods and fresh ingredients. I practice what I preach, filling my plate with plenty of fruits and veggies. A typical day for me might kick off with a blueberry smoothie, followed by a protein-packed salad for lunch. Dinner usually features a veggie-centric dish with a good dose of protein. And post-workout, I turn to sweet potatoes with a sprinkle of paprika to keep me going.
But my journey into health and fitness isn’t just about nutrition. I’ve dipped my toes into the world of bikini competitions, which taught me that weight training trumps cardio for building muscle. I’ve also been a competitive half marathon runner, where slow-releasing carbs like sweet potatoes and oats were my secret weapons for endurance.
