PAP 8: HELEN KING THYROIDITIS, CANCER AND PALEO
25, Aug, 2017
In today’s episode, I am rapt to be joined by the gorgeous Helen King from Nourished For Health in Perth. I met Helen in the super cool Facebook Group Paleo in Perth, if you haven’t checked it out yet, definitely do – if you are in WA that is!! Helen and I have met a couple of times at Heirloom when Pete Evans does his amazing meals – gosh I am so grateful to Pete for helping to create such an awesome community!
Helen’s passion is helping people understand their bodies, what goes into their bodies and how it affects their overall health. She’s a bit in love the quote by Thomas Edison (1847-1931)
"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his/her patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet and in the cause and prevention of disease."
Helen has been involved with Natural Medicine for 22 years. She is extremely passionate about helping people reach their health goals and take charge of their own Wellness and that of their families.
She is a “Food is Medicine” advocate while also using a combination of herbal medicine and nutritional supplements when needed. Her own health challenges have seen her overcome cancer at age 29yr, and most recently treat herself for an Autoimmune Thyroiditis.
Her most recent health scare was Thyroid nodules that very quickly became so enlarged she needed surgery. The biochemistry came back as suspect of cancer. Helen only has half of her thyroid and denied the medication as is committed to managing her food and lifestyle.
“I am committed to assisting others gain the knowledge to heal themselves!”
Helen is a qualified Naturopath, Bowen Therapist and Mindd Practitioner (which encompasses Metabolic/ Immunologic/Neurologic/ Digestive/ Developmental disorders) strengthening her knowledge on treating children with Learning difficulties, autism and spectrum disorders and is currently undergoing external studies in Bioindividual Nutrition.
She has a First Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, Past-Professional Classical Indian & Contemporary Dancer and currently loves participating in Triathlon and Nature walks in her spare time! She has two beautiful daughters of her own.
