When I say I’ve been down in the trenches with you, I’m not joking. I’ve experienced alllll the crappy (pardon the pun) symptoms of Hashimoto’s disease including the all too common constipation that my clients struggle with too.

1/ Healing is a marathon not a sprint I was privileged as a Nutritionist student who understood that despite what the GP was telling me, I was not ok, this was not normal, nor the simple consequence of simply ‘doing too much’. From the moment my head lifted off the pillow in the morning I […]

I am not dogmatic about food, I’ve never been the kind of nutritionist who told allll my clients they had to stop eating dairy/gluten and feast on a diet of sunlight and rainbows.

Let’s have a talk about hay fever. It’s been on my mind lately because every second person is complaining about it and for the first time in 8 years, I’ve had nary a sniffle or an itch. You see, when my health imploded with Hashimoto’s disease I had the most horrific two years of gut issues. […]

So often I hear the words, ‘No matter what I try, I’m always exhausted’. Fatigue associated with Hashimoto’s disease is unrelenting, all-encompassing and usually comes with a hefty dose of brain fog and mental confusion, sometimes dizziness and frequently, low moods. It doesn’t tend to improve with sleep or any of the usual strategies. It’s […]
