Hi, my name is Elisha and I am a degree qualified Nutritionist, health writer, and mum of 2. My areas of interests include food related illnesses such as insulin resistance,obesity, and also the gut and brain connection, which includes ADHD, Autism, anxiety, behavioural problems and learning delay.
Even though each person has their own different needs – I do seem to find most people are at their healthiest when they cut down on carbohydrates and replace them with essential fatty acids. I believe fats heal and too many carbohydrates do harm. One reason is because wheat is everywhere and is sprayed with glyphosate. A herbicide which destroys our good bacteria. This can lead to a damaged gut lining, causing leaky gut amongst other things. Carbohydrates also convert to sugar when we are not active enough, this then is stored for later use, if not used up is then converted to fat.
I also use biomedical testing to aid in uncovering underlying illnesses and can assist you with clearing these conditions from your body using nutritional medicine.
My passion is to treat people in a holistic way.
