Hello my name is Figen. I’m a Turk living in London, UK.
I have had digestive issues for years, which has been a struggle and made my daily life and working life uncomfortable and difficult at times.
After seeing many doctors over the years, being probably falsely diagnosed as having IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and having many allergy and medical tests and endoscopy’s, conventional medicine has not been able to identify or relieve my symptoms.
So, still suffering and looking for a cure, I began to research my symptoms myself and learning more widely about health and nutrition. Recently, I have successfully completed the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN), Health Coach Diploma course and I’m currently studying the College of Nutritional Medicine (CNM), Nutritional Therapist course.
This research and education has led me increasingly down a path of a healthy mind and body and therefore natural medicines, an organic healthy diet and a focus on general wellbeing have become more important to me.
I hope this blog inspires you and if you suffer similar digestive or other issues it encourages you to begin your own journey.
