Everyone in functional medicine has their own story around health. I'm no exception. For as long as I can remember, I always had stomach issues. It eventually came to a head during my 3rd year of university when I crashed with exhaustion, IBS, depression and terrible skin. Seeing allergists and gut specialists didn't help. Eventually I found my own way to making changes in my diet and lifestyle. Out went the pizzas, sugar, chocolate, McDonald's and fizzy drinks. In came vegetables, fish, nuts, seeds, water and a few supplements. Within 2 weeks I dropped 5 kg in weight, my skin cleared up and so did my gut. It was honestly life-changing. I then set about learning all I could about nutrition and the body's biochemistry, I am definitely a scientist at heart.
But even though we rely on science and research, we know that it's only by making small and consistent changes to our lives that we truly make the big shifts.
