Ashley's passion for natural health started at a very young age with one single wart! Yes, thats right. one little pesky wart on the top of her hand that simply wouldn't go away despite multiple removals by the doctor. Thankfully, this wasn't good enough for Ashley's mother who persisted for an answer to this problem and researched until she found one. Her persistence finally led to a wonderful and simple solution, which had her wart naturally disappear within days, never to return again! This was probably the coolest thing a 10yr-old could have experienced, or at least for Ashley it was.
The next 'natural' mission ended up being to solve her annual recurring Strep Throat that antibiotics were no longer working for. Back into the research her mother dug and what do you know? Another very simple solution and - No more Strep throat! Any time it would ever threaten to return over the next couple of years, she was armed and ready so that it couldn't even take hold.
In 2013, Ashley found out she had Coeliac's disease and could no longer tolerate a single trace amount of Gluten hiding anywhere in food. Chances are she had this from a very young age, looking back upon previously unexplained symptoms that had just normalised into her life. She is currently working very intimately with food, naturopaths and doctors to prevent worsening symptoms of auto-immune diseases - which are the next stages of deterioration if proper healing does not occur first.
Ever since that very first experience with the disappearing wart, her passion, interest and pure motivation has been for vibrant health via the abundance that nature has freely available. Ashley believes the best medicine is prevention. Another way of saying this is that the best medicine is continued, vibrant, inspired health through our habits! This happens every single day, most predominantly with what we put in and on our bodies, as well as our daily measure on the scale between happiness and stress. She draws from an extensive array of techniques for self-empowered healing that you can do for yourself - because ultimately YOU know YOU best!
"The more we know the healthier we grow."
Ashley is an inspiration in the kitchen and an advocate for vibrant health naturally. With a background is in structural engineering, she now channels all those learnings in organisation, efficiency, and problem-solving into helping people establish a solid foundation for health in the home. She won't stop until she has positively transformed, and personally touched the lives of 1,000,000 people.
"Never underestimate the power in that next single step."
Ashley does not restrict herself (or anyone else) to any particular diet other than "healthIER", step-by-step, day-by-day, gradually making changes that last, and only so fast as to still enjoy and delight in the process.
"It is about integrating these gradual changes into your current lifestyle so that they become the new 'normal' ".
Her natural ability to combine flavours and create easy, wholesome meals with whatever's available has inspired many already to be able to do this themselves.
Ashley is based on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. She and her team travel Australia-wide for Pantry & Kitchen flips, speaking engagements, and short-courses. Contact us for more information.
