Hey! my name is Alex.

Here is where you can find tips and advice on how to heal your gut, balance hormones and achieve optimal health through deliciously nourishing food, stress management strategies, self love and self care.

After years of experiencing skin problems, shortness of breath, anxiety spikes, irregular periods and the inability to cope with stress, I was diagnosed with a condition called SIBO.

SIBO affects the bodies digestion and absorption of nutrients, resulting in a weakened lining of the small intestine that causes leaky gut syndrome.

Our gut is the body’s health hub, so when it's out of balance we can experience;

  • low mood

  • acne

  • bloat

  • diarrhoea/constipation

  • fatigue

  • nutritional deficiencies

  • brain fog

  • skin conditions like eczema

  • anxiety

  • menstruation issues

My gut healing journey has led me to choose a lifestyle where I eat wholefoods that are free from gluten, dairy, soy, refined sugar, and eggs, and prioritise stress management practices daily. 

Health and wellness looks different for everyone so I want this blog to offer tools + resources that empower you to create a lifestyle that works for YOUR body + YOUR mind.

And by adding simple and small changes into your daily routine, looking after your wellbeing can be a lot easier than you may think - plus it’ll be the most rewarding thing you’ve ever done.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
