Episode #18: My 38th Lap Around The Sun

Each year I like to look back over my lap around the sun. I find it so rewarding. So insightful. This year I’m sharing what I’ve taken from the previous 12 months with you on the podcast. It’s been such a huge period of personal and emotional growth for me.

It started with a trip around the Museum of Broken Dreams + ended with a day filled with love from all sides of the world! And most importantly from within myself…

Whilst we may not always get what we planned – we always get what we need… That sums up exactly what my 38th Lap Around the Sun has been! Exactly what I needed….

Episode #17: Understanding Self + Others Through The Drama Triangle

Kicking off our month of exploring a little more of ourselves with Leanna returning to chat relationships. And not just of the romantic kind.

We are exploring a concept called The Drama Triangle to look at the roles that we play in relationships. This model helps you see yourself and what you are doing – it also shows us that we are all the same and we are all human.

 This concept also shows you where you have moved away from parts of yourself.

Episode #16: Eczema, the Immune System + Leaky Gut

In this episode I wrap up our month looking at the link between skin + gut health.

I dive into some causes of Eczema including genetics + immune dysregulation, how immune dysregulation can occur and the link between leaky gut, food allergies + Eczema.

 

There is a lot of talk in this one regarding food intolerance’s and allergies. You will find a lot of helpful advice if you are dealing with these challenges.

Episode #15: SIBO + Rosacea

These are two of my favourite topics to talk about! Having experienced both of these conditions I understand them from both personal + professional level. 

SIBO is also one of the main causes of a very common syndrome – Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). 1 in 9 people experience IBS so if you are the 1 in 9 or know someone is this episode will also be super helpful for you too.

Episode #14: My Personal Skin Health Story

For those that have followed me over on social media for awhile you will know that I have suffered with Rosacea now for many years. I’m actually not going to go too in depth with the ‘how-to’ healing aspect of Rosacea, rather to share my experience with it.

I know when I share my experiences that it allows others to find hope in their situations so I hope that this episode also does that. Because we all have something that we have or are dealing with in our lives that we may be hiding, that we may be letting hold us back, that we may be finding a constant battle.

Episode #13: The Connection Between Gut Health + Psoriasis

August will be dedicated to exploring the connection between Gut Health + Skin Health. Which is why I wanted to kick off with this episode. This episode dives into the connection between our gut and our skin.

Now you don’t need to have Psoriasis to gain lots of useful knowledge from this episode, particularly around how our Gut Health can impact our health in general.

 

Episode #12: The Connection Between Gut Health, Stress + Your Mood

This episode really nicely ties together the other episodes I’ve done on Supoorting Your Fitness + Movement Goals + The Gut + The Mood episode.

I explore how gut health not only impacts your mood but also your body composition, the impacts of stress on you gut health + showing you how when combining nutrition, exercise + massage, you are giving your gut the best chance to healthy.

 

Episode #11: One Year Ago Today: Uni Reflections

 Today marks a year ago that I finished uni. So I am sharing with you reflections that I have had looking back. That day a year ago came with so many mixed emotions. Those have come back up again. As I am a strong believer in our emotional + mental health being just as important as our physical health to lead us to a life that makes us hum, I wanted to share this with you. It’s usually something I leave for the blogs, but today I am opening up the vuneralbility and sharing it with you here on the podcast.

 

Episode #10: Supporting your fitness + movement goals: Recovery

Did you know it is possible to back up day after day to train for whatever your fitness + movement goal is without burnout, without that heavy muscle feeling, without constant colds or sore throats, without depleting your energy…?

Yep it absolutely is. And the key… Your recovery.

 

Episode #9: Period gone missing? You could be experiencing Hypothalamic Amenorrhea

Hypothalamic Amenorrhea (HA) is often misdiagnosed or even undiagnosed + hence the need to bring awareness to this condition.

Claudia’s the most gorgeous soul on every level. Her energy, her nurturing nature and her accent just make me melt! She is a wealth of knowledge in this subject and also shares her own personal story with HA.

 

Episode #8: Supporting your fitness + movement goals: Could your stubborn fat loss be trying to tell you something?

This is not just for the ‘athletes’.

So why the focus on fat loss? If you are having trouble shifting stubborn fat it is a good sign that you body is not working optimally. And in this episode we cover some of the key reasons you may be struggling to hit your goals including hormones, the thyroid, stress + gut health.

 

Episode #7: Disordered Eating: Exploring your relationship with food with Nina Kingsford-Smith

This is not an episode about eating disorders such as Anorexia or Bulimia. We dive into disordered eating in all it’s facets. I would be surprised to hear of anyone who hasn’t experienced some form of disordered eating behaviour or habit in their life, and yes that includes you guys…. Definitely from us Gen X’s onwards.

 

 

Episode #6: Men’s Health: Testosterone More Than Sexual Function

June is Men’s Health Month and I wanted to do my bit towards helping raise awareness of some of the health problems that exist and what we can do about them.

Yes testosterone has very significant effects on reproduction but it also plays a key and vital role in better muscle strength and gains, a faster metabolism and fat loss, more energy, better sleep, improved sexual performance, and protection against health problems like a heat attack, colon or prostate cancer.

 

Episode #5: Finding Your Ordinary Life + Loving It with Leanna McNeil

When I recorded this episode I was left with whole body tingles. And re-listening to it I had the same feeling. This is one that you will no doubt be hitting the rewind button on, just to re-hear some of the amazing insights you will get.

In this chat Leanna + I really explore your inner authority, tapping into it + trusting it, to embrace the ordinary you and absolutely loving what you find.

 

Episode #4: COVID-19 Prevention May Not Just Be About Vaccines

This week I wanted to give you a little more information around the current research into COVID19 treatment + prevention from a nutritional standpoint and of course there will be practical takeaways you can implement.

This is not a generalised immune boosting podcast. This is specific to Coronaviruses and viral lung infections.

 

Episode #3: Managing Stress During Uncertain Times with Anthony Hartcher

When Anthony from me&my wellness suggested we chat about Managing Stress During Uncertain Times, I jumped at the chance to talk to him about it. Anthony has a wealth of knowledge in this area. Not only does he practice what he preaches, Anthony has worked with corporates, helping their staff optimise their wellness during times of change.

This chat is not just timely but can be used during any time of uncertainty in your life.

Episode #2: The Gut + Your Mental Health

 

In this episode I am flying solo.

From the beginning of the covid-19 outbreak and talk of lock down, I have always been concerned with the mental health of large majority of us. I thought it might be well timed to have a chat about how we can give ourselves a little helping hand to keep our mental health strong by looking to our gut.

Episode #1: Finding Fluidity On + Off The Mat with Lucinda Muldoon

This is a special conversation for you, with the lovely Lucinda Muldoon. This woman has inspired me with the way she embraces her vulnerability and shows up to the world.
In our chat we explore Lucinda’s journey to becoming a Yoga Teacher, how the practice of yoga is more than just performing a set of poses and the gift of finding fluidity on and off the mat.
In her true style Lucinda opens up and delivers us some beautiful insights and wisdom, that many of us spend our whole lives searching for.

Hey there! I’m Kirsty

I’m a nutritionist, energy healer, recovering superwoman, sister, daughter, auntie, fur mum, nutrition nerd and lover cocktails.

If you want someone who personifies the duality of life, the practical with woo-woo, the feeling and the doing and the realism and the dreaming – then I am it.

I love embracing all sides of our experience.

What makes me hum in the work I do?

Bridging science + spirituality.

I love empowering people to listen to + understand their bodies, allowing them to heal the root causes of their conditions, not just cover them over. I do this through combining whole foods with energetic healing so that my clients feel energetically lifted!
