Most of you probably don’t know this, but before I got into nervous system work, healing trauma, and all things neuroplasticity, I majored in exercise and biomedical science, as well as applied human nutrition (all these details are on my about page).
I studied nutrition and all the things related to hormone health, sports nutrition, metabolic syndrome, even geriatric nutrition, at a fairly high level, but the nervous system ‘stuff’ pulled me in way more.
(Please know that) going more ‘nervous system’ focused does not mean that I don’t cherish all of my previous studies! If anything, I’d say that I am craving being up to speed with what is out there currently in the nutrition and biomedical/endocrine and health-related fields. That’s why I love meeting those, like my guest today, who have followed these nutrition-related paths and have kept up with the current research, practical know-how, and more.
Meet Kitty (Catalina) Martone, also known as, The Healthy Gut Girl.
I originally met Kitty when I was on her show, and I’ve been following her work around hormones, sleep, the microbiome, and gut health ever since.
