MEET SHELLEY

Hi, thanks for stopping by, my name is Shelley. I am a Mumma to two boys, a clinical Nutritionist and Naturopath and the founder of Freedom Wellness.

At age 24 I experienced a sudden health storm within my body. I suddenly and very quickly lost over 10kgs. My digestive health declined rapidly. I was so fatigued I couldn’t get myself out of bed for a 4 week period. Iron was not being absorbed by my body meaning I needed numerous iron infusions in a short period of time and I was so sick I was on 24hr supervision. After more and more investigations eventually I was diagnosed with a thyroid condition. I remember receiving my diagnoses and that day walked out from the specialist with a bag full of pills. I was to take one pill a day for the rest of my life in order to control my health and how I generally felt on a day to day basis. This being my only option really didn’t sit well with me.

I made it my mission to learn about nutrition and how I could overcome and manage this diagnoses by using the ‘food is medicine’ principles.

(Note: I do NOT under any circumstances encourage you to disregard what your medical practitioner has advised and or prescribed you.) 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 clinical Nutritionist

This degree allowed me to pair my own experience with clinical research and really create an impact and change with my clients health. This thirst for knowledge and understanding then led me to focus on a range of health conditions and continue expanding my knowledge.

After my Nutritional Medicine degree, I went on to study a Bachelor of Health Science in Naturopathy. Now 9 years on I still manage the Hashimoto’s diagnoses through the power of food and live a happy, healthy and well balanced life, helping others do the same.
