Favorite quotes of the episode: “What does stress have to do with my gut? It’s everything!”

“What you eat matters, even if it’s not in the now.”

Episode Overview

In this episode, I talk with Kira Whitham. She holds a Master’s in Health and Nutrition Education from Hawthorn University, as well as additional training through the School of Applied Functional Medicine, Metabolic Healing Institute, and IFM. She combines the principles of holistic nutrition and functional medicine to help people bring their bodies back to their intended state of wellness. She is a firm believer in the healing power of food and works hard to help her clients improve their relationship with food while gaining an understanding of what nourishes and depletes the body.
