My Personal Journey
At the age of four I was diagnosed with a rare Autoimmune disease called APECED syndrome. Basically, my immune system decided to work overtime and attack my hormone producing glands. I’ve grown up in and out of hospital, taking numerous medications daily and just trying to live my life. One big issue I had was that I was unable to absorb my food properly, thus, my body wasn’t able to get the nutrients it needs to grow, develop and for me to feel well.
My amazing doctors tried every treatment under the sun, but eventually at the age of 17 I was put on Intravenous nutrition. Nutrition through a tube that by-passed my Gut completely. It was a major change in my life, but within a month the change in my body and the way I felt was unbelievable!
Aside from no longer looking like skin and bones I had less hospital admissions from infections. I had more energy. I wasn’t cold all the time.
My hair, skin and nails were stronger and healthier. It was like a whole new world had been opened to me. Yes, I still had my medical condition, that wasn’t cured, but I was able to have a life.
It was then I realised just how important good Nutrition is. I’d always had an interest in food and Nutrition. I love cooking and eating good food, but it was then that I saw first hand it’s importance. I want to help people realise that food doesn’t just have to be just for fuel, it can be delicious and nutritious. I want everyone to feel the benefits a well balanced varied diet has to offer.
Once my body was properly fuelled, I was able to discover my love for Dance, Yoga and Pilates. I feel happy during and after a class. I understand the importance of staying active for good physical and mental health. It’s not just for weight loss!
