Kirsty Wirth

Kirsty Wirth is the founder of and her philosophy is simple: she believes we need to accept the cards we've been dealt and then take responsibility for our own health - and that of the next generation. It’s about making sure that we don't continue to hand down these health issues that could be stopped now.

Her mission is to reach more people and families in our community and to spread the word about how fermenting can be an easy and powerful way to nourish the gut microbiome for good health.

Come with me as I ask Kirsty:

* How she became so experienced in gut issues.

* What causes people's gut issues?

* How do you know if you have a gut issue and what tests can be done to investigate.

Kirsty also shares with us:

* The difference in the microbes of babies born by Caesarean section.

* Great foods to feed kids for good gut bacteria.

* Her experience of fecal microbial transplant (FMT) and what research is revealing.

* Her philosophy on nutrition and good gut health.

Kirsty’s enthusiasm for good health is contagious, and bursts out in this episode with great quotes like:

“I would love Medicare to sponsor everyone once a year to have a gut test.”

“We don't know what normal and healthy feels like anymore.”

“I love sitting down to vegetables because I've got microbes now that are requesting that - that's how they live!”
