I was in my late 20s when I realised that the medical profession was not going to be able to help me with my continuing digestive problems, which was labelled ‘IBS’. After two years of seeing specialists I was put on an elimination diet that consisted of ostrich meat, sunflower oil and sweet potato!
I was told that I could eat normally right up until the day I started my special diet. So I continued with my 5 a day cups of coffee, pasta, dairy, alcohol and chocolate consumption right up until the night before. I was in for a shock, one that was going to change my life – not in the way the doctor thought! By the end of the next day – I was on the floor. I couldn’t move – the headache was beyond anything that I had ever then or even now experienced. I had not been told to drink lots of water, I was not informed that I should have built up slowly to the elimination diet. I was never warned about caffeine withdrawal. It shocked me so much I have never drunk coffee since. I also only lasted 4 days before I begged the specialist to allow me to eat something else – he was incredibly unsympathetic. I decided to remove myself from his care and began self care. Knowing what I know now, I wonder at my own common sense – why did I not think that my digestive pain was connected to what I was consuming and the stressful lifestyle I had? Simple really – all my doctors did not understand or believe it.
I didn’t know about Nutritional Therapy then, but I completely cured myself by making better food choices and removing those foods that I had become sensitive to. I bought book after book on Nutrition and read as much as I could get my hands on. I found the subject so interesting and was absorbed by it – in fact I drove my friends and family quite mad with my generous advise on their eating habits. I devised my own special diet leading up to conception of my children, and when they were born, I wrote and designed story books to encourage them to eat vegetables (NutriKids).
I sold my design company and returned to college! I chose to study Nutritional Therapy at the College of Naturopathic Medicine because the course was holistic and included other disciplines like Acupuncture, Naturopathy and Herbal medicine. Enabling me to have an understanding of, and a crossover into other therapies should the need arise.
Now I am using all my knowledge and experience to help other people find their way to better health through understanding what better nutrition can do for health and well-being.
