Hi! I’m Kira Whitham, founder of “a nourished life.” So happy you’re here!
A little about me…I hold a Master’s in Health and Nutrition Education degree from Hawthorn University and am a member of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP). I strongly believe that food has healing qualities and the majority of our health problems can be solved through proper nourishment.
As a child I experienced frequent stomach pain that went undiagnosed. My parents took me to doctors and were given vague prognoses and referred me to specialists. I underwent test after test after test, and was finally “diagnosed” with IBS and told to eliminate citrus, tomatoes, caffeine, and chocolate. I was given Zantac for heartburn and was even offered antidepressants to ease the stomach pain.
Unfortunately, my stomach issues continued even when I cut those foods out. I decided I was fed up and began doing my own research into nutrition. First I stopped eating out so often (fast food was a frequent staple) and cut back on dairy and grains. I started to notice some improvement in my symptoms, so I continued reducing these foods. Today, I am virtually symptom free and no longer have to make trips to Urgent Care due to debilitating stomach pain and vomiting. I have eliminated dairy, drastically reduced gluten and sugar consumption, and no longer eat fast foods. I eat a healthy diet of organic produce and meats and have never felt better.
And as for the foods that the doctors had me eliminate—those don’t bother me in the least. Had I never done my own research and began experimenting with foods, I would probably still be stuck in my old ways, not realizing that certain foods were fueling my pain. This is what drives me to help others. I want people to know that there are alternative routes to healing, and that food is meant to nourish the body. I love helping others find solutions to their health problems and begin enjoying their lives again.
These days I enjoy traveling, reading, painting, photography, and spending time at home with my husband, son, and Pomeranian.
