Stormi Knight

As someone with a background in kinesiology, I have always been interested in how the human body works, moves, and functions. However, my life took a turn when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease & SLE lupus conditions. This autoimmune disorder affects the thyroid gland, and it can lead to a wide range of symptoms, from fatigue and weight gain to hair loss and depression. This causes constant chronic pain that I deal with daily.

‌At first, I felt overwhelmed by my diagnosis and unsure of how to manage my symptoms that caused major depression that I still deal with. However, I quickly learned that functional nutrition and gut health could play a crucial role in managing Hashimoto’s. By focusing on nourishing my body with whole, nutrient-dense foods and supporting my gut microbiome, I was able to transform my health and improve my quality of life.

‌Though my journey keeps all the time, I am passionate about helping others who are going through the same journey. I am always looking for new ways to improve my own health and share my knowledge with others. Whether it’s through one-on-one consultations, group workshops, or online resources, I am committed to supporting others as they navigate the challenges of Hashimoto’s disease and work to transform their lives through functional nutrition and gut health to help educate people about this and autoimmunity.
