Why become a nutritionist? What does a nutritionist do?
My journey to becoming a nutritionist started a long time ago. When I was approximately 10 years old, it was discovered I had a thyroid autoimmune disease – I had Hashimoto’s. I went from being a happy high energy child full of beans to a teary child who could not get out of bed in the mornings. I also developed a lump in my throat; a goitre. Key signs something was not right.
A health philosophy … welcome to Mad for Health.
My aim in writing the blog is to keep you informed and up to date on nutrition and lifestyle topics and trends and help you to get to know me.
There is so much information available on what, why, when, how and if you should eat ‘this or that’ or adopt ‘A, B or C’ lifestyle habit. My aim is to provide informed, simple and down to earth information that will help you work out what is fact versus fiction, trend or fashion. I will also aim to prove you can tantalise your taste buds whilst still nourishing your mind body and soul.
I also believe it is important you understand a little more about me, what I believe is important for achieving and maintaining good health.
Let’s begin with the principles underpinning my health philosophy.
