I’m Christie, a women’s and gut health dietitian on a mission to empower you with the knowledge, skills and tools to nurture your body from the inside out.
I’ll always remember the client who ignited my passion for working in Endometriosis.
At that time, she wasn’t medically diagnosed and came to me desperately searching for a solution to her irritable bowel syndrome and period pain. During our initial consultation, I suspected endometriosis straight away, but first, we needed to take the proper steps to diagnose her with a specialist medical team.
She had suffered years of feeling invisible, being told her “pain was all in her head”, that she was probably just “hormonal” and “period pain is just a normal part of a being a woman”.
I advocated directly to her primary healthcare practitioner who assisted us with a referral to specialist gynaecology. Within just a few months she was diagnosed with Endometriosis - opening up the door for better medical, nutrition and lifestyle treatments to dramatically improve her quality of life.
Helping women feel visible again is what makes me jump out of bed every morning.
