Kent, England

I started following Dr Megan Rossi when I heard her on a podcast a few years ago. I purchased the first book ‘Eat Yourself Healthy’ and continued to follow Dr Megan Rossi with interest. Initially I didn’t make any changes to my diet as I never had any gut health issues and I considered myself to be relatively ‘healthy’.

Following the first Covid vaccine, I started to have various joint/muscle weakness and inflammation issues. By December 2021, I was advised that I was very low in iron.

I got the second book ‘Eat More, Live Well’ and started to look at how I could improve my iron from foods as I am not a fan of medication. I made a few subtle changes to improve the variety of vegetables I was eating and to add beans, nuts, seeds, more legumes etc. The majority of my meals are now recipes from the book and the only bread I consume is the wheaten bread.

Within approx 6 weeks of these subtle changes my energy levels started to improve and within 12 weeks they returned to normal levels and have thankfully stayed that way! I am very grateful for the improvements I have been able to make and astonished at how much I have learned during this process.
