I'm Sheridan Joy Austin, and I am a speaker, nutrition consultant, recipe creator and writer. I am a qualified holistic Nutritionist and a certified Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) practitioner, whereby I use food as medicine to support health and vitality.
I was conditioned to believe that my symptoms were normal. Sinus infections, digestive issues, chest infections, asthma, hay fever, rashes, extreme fatigue, a foggy mind and so on. I lived off antihistamines, asthma puffers and antibiotics. I have always had a deep fascination, love and interest for food, but I wasn't sure why and what to think of it while I consistently exposed myself to man-made, packaged and processed foods. This interest led me to becoming a Qualified Nutritionist and a Gut and Psychology Syndrome Practitioner. Through further constant personal research I have since freed myself from many of the symptoms that were robbing me of a life filled with energy, vitality, confidence and excitement.
Food and it's ability to nourish is undeniably powerful at healing and rejuvenating the body. The many trillions of cells and microbes that make up our being is waiting to be nourished in every moment to allow us to thrive.
The body's intelligence is overwhelmingly intriguing and impressive, therefore I have a strong passion to assist those that have been told that their health will continue to decline or that they need to live with their symptoms forever. I believe nature has everything worked out perfectly, and if we become in tune with our instincts, stop silencing our symptoms and begin to listen, question everything and begin to love and respect ourselves, then the process can be enjoyable, and worth it.
