My name is Shelley McKenzie and Freedom Wellness was born after my own health took a shifted for the worst. After being diagnosed with a thyroid condition called Hashimotos, I made it my mission to learn about nutrition and how I could overcome my Hashimotos by using the ‘food is medicine’ principles. I learnt to listen to the screams and whispers of my body (which I previously ignored), I researched foods and made huge but necessary lifestyle changes. I used myself as a guinea pig and watched my health drastically start to improve, and for the first time in years I felt really amazing. I wanted to share this new found sense of well-being, continue to grow my knowledge and help others overcome their own health concerns. So I went on to study Nutritional Medicine and became a Nutritionist.
I was working as a Personal Trainer at the time. I watched clients constantly train their butts off and eat well for a few weeks only to fall off the wagon and continue to repeat this cycle over and over again. As I got further into my Nutritional Medicine studies I realised that in order to help clients create change. There was a need to close the gap between what clients say they want and what they actually do. It was then I decided to become a Wellness Coach to learn the tools and principles needed to empower my clients to make long term changes once and for all and to avoid the yo-yo dieting cycle.
