The woman lauded as the Gut Guru, Kirsty Wirth, is set to share her healing insights at a gut health and fermenting workshop in Albury on Saturday, April 29.
Credited with helping everything from excruciating eczema and allergies to depression and autism, the founder of Kultured Wellness has attracted a huge and devoted following for her work in linking brain and gut health.
Her mission is to inspire and educate people to take control of their health by eating real and fermented foods that nourishes the brain and the gut.
She is a particularly fervent advocate for children on the spectrum, after “recovering” her non-verbal child with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Her popularity has spread to the Border with tickets for the event selling out fast, according to organiser Kinta Gitsham.
Mrs Gitsham said many people were starting to discover that the gut holds the key to almost all of your health and wellness.
She said her son Archie was now off all ADHD/anxiety medication and his autism struggles had all but disappeared thanks to reviewing his gut health and working in conjunction with integrative GPs, paediatricians and naturopaths.
“Archie was very deficient in zinc as well as a few other minerals; his anxiety improved off the scale when we started him on zinc, B vitamins and magnesium,” Mrs Gitsham said.
“It was goodbye medication and his symptoms of autism traits and struggles all but vanished.
“We still have a long way to go but so much of this is owed to changing his gut health and looking at what our kids are heavily depleted in or overloaded with.”
After years of research, Ms Wirth said she had gained a deep understanding of the role of our guts in wellness.
“I’ve learnt first hand what we’ve always known – that all disease begins in the gut,” she states on her Kultured Wellness website.
“More importantly you have the power to change the course of your life – and your family’s lives – with how you nourish your body.”
The April 29 event has two sessions with the morning devoted to information and Ms Wirth on stage demonstrating how to make kefir, coconut yoghurt, kombucha and gut healing gummies.
The cost is $89 and includes morning tea and an “epic goodie bag”.
Tickets for the afternoon fermenting session are almost sold out – it’s an all-hand-on deck affair where Ms Wirth will walk you through making your own sauerkraut, kimchi, kefir, yoghurt and cultured carrots.
