The Art of Nourishment Series
Presented by Nikki Wagner
Nourishing our bodies with wholefoods is essential for:
- energy & vitality
- a strong immune system
- repair damaged tissue
- support the liver to detoxify
- heal & protect our brains
- and maintain a healthy microbiome
Nikki is inspiring with her ability to succinctly explain how our gut health impacts our whole being. Providing yourself with wholefood lays the necessary foundation not only for good health, but for a fulfilling, meaningful life. It allows you to achieve your goals. Everything builds up from your foundation of optimal health.
Nikki Wagner is formally trained as a biochemist - focusing on how the environment effects your genetic expression (epigenetics), immune system reactions, hormonal effects, the consequences of nutrient deficiencies and the microbiome. She is now a practicing nutritionist living on the Far South Coast, NSW. A type 1 diabetic herself, Nikki understands what is like to live with chronic illness and autoimmune disease. It is her goal to help people with diabetes and other long-term illnesses improve their quality of life through the Art of Nourishment - wholefoods coupled with movement, mindfulness, and healthy relationships.
