While studying health science and nutrition in Sydney, I discovered just how complex the human body really is, and the power of nutrition, herbs and naturopathy. Studying also made me aware how our health is impacted by modern lifestyles, processed western diets, and chronic stress.
As a student pulling late nights and surviving on coffee, I was looking to fill my nutritional gaps, by creating my own recipe for something I couldn’t find on the shelf: protein powder with a great nutritional profile that actually tasted good. And I realised better nutrition could help me – and others like me – age well, help prevent disease, and tap into energy reserves we didn’t know we had.
Knowing I wasn’t alone in struggling with health challenges, I set out to offer a solution. One that would empower other people to take their future health into their own hands, by sharing what I’d learned, and simplifying a complicated and often contradictory topic.
And Two Islands was born.
