The secret to extreme health lies in your gut… So says today’s podcast guest, Kirsty Wirth from Kultured Wellness — and with good reason.
Kirsty’s story is fascinating. Her young son used to be autistic, non-verbal and unresponsive. But after she implemented an intense healing regime for his gut, the little guy is now thriving, robust, and healthier than ever.
Sounds crazy, right? But the link between our guts and our brains is now well known by scientists — even if mainstream nutrition has not yet caught up. Which is exactly why Kirsty is on a mission to revolutionise our health by sharing her secrets with the people who need it most.
If you’re already on the gut health bandwagon, let me assure you: Kirsty takes things seriously next level. (If you think that bone broth and fermented veggies alone are enough, you must listen to this podcast.)
As well as teaching us how to care for our microbiome, Kirsty shares heaps of surprising ways that our gut bacteria influence our life — from our moods, to our weight, to our fertility, and even our relationships.
She is one amazing woman, and you’re not going to want to miss this conversation.
