Personal Connections

Have you noticed a lot of great social movements have one thing in common?  They are started by people who talk openly about their lives & experiences. 

I noticed this particularly over the last few years whilst I have been studying.  There has been such a diversity of people who talk about their own experiences.  I have had conversations about kids of various ages, infertility, eating disorders, domestic violence, depression & anxiety, alcohol & drug abuse, homelessness, autism, religion & abortion.

It has been interesting to get personal perspectives on different experiences, not to mention educational for me.  As an example, eating disorder convos ranged from someone who experienced it, a nurse’s perspective, & family members who lived alongside it.  It left me with a better understanding from several perspectives due to people willing to share their experiences on the same topic. 

Everyone was from different social backgrounds & ages, various employment histories, even nationalities differed.  As the old saying goes “you can’t judge a book by its cover”.  Everyone has a story to tell – you just need to listen.

I am incredibly passionate about food and its healing power – it is pretty amazing how what you eat affects how your body works! In fact, I was so fascinated, I went & got myself a degree in it – a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine). Now in all honesty I don’t eat or live a perfect lifestyle, nor will I ever pretend I do. Realistically I know you won’t be perfect either. And that’s OK. As a Clinical Nutritionist I focus on what we eat and how this has an impact on our health and wellness – everyday.
