I had been suffering from chronic bloating and constipation continuously for about 14 months prior to starting my 1:1 nutritional coaching with Gabrielle. I’ve always been an energetic, happy kind of person but my symptoms quickly changed that. It was very uncomfortable which turned me in to a grumpy hermit, avoiding as many social activities as possible. I didn’t want people seeing me and thinking I was pregnant. Training was becoming very difficult. I have seen many professionals, including, multiple general practitioners, a gastroenterologist, a naturopath and a dietician. Costing me thousands of dollars. I would be holding back tears as each one would tell me the same thing… increase your fibre and water intake and follow a low FODMAP diet, all of which I had done with no success. Name a fibre supplement, stool softener or laxative and I’ve probably tried it. I had just about given up when I came across a podcast featuring Gabrielle and her knowledge on gut health. Once I found that Gabrielle does coaching with RP I instantly starting hunting down her website and haven’t turned back since. I am now four weeks in to my 1:1 with Gabrielle and my symptoms have eased tremendously. A bad day of bloating now is what would have been considered a ‘good’ day before. Sometimes it’s not just about cutting to a certain weight or getting stronger. Sometimes its just about being a happy, healthy you.
