You may remember a few months back we put a call out to all of our amazing wellness tribe, customers, clients and followers asking what kinds of topics you wanted us to research and blog about. Since then, that is what we have been doing. People wanted to know more about biofilm, so a biofilm blog was written. Candida, too? Yep, no worries. Easily.
However, there is one recurring topic that people want to know more about… they want to know more about Kultured Wellness. They want to know what services we provide and what they can expect when joining our Kultured Wellness consultation program.
So I thought, let’s do it. Let’s write a blog about all things Kultured Wellness related. At least it won’t require any research…it will be a bit like a holiday!
Where It All Began
I have not been shy about telling people that I have a history of quite chronic health issues. Digestion issues, fatigue, and constant muscle and back pain to name a few. As I got older, this spiralled into difficulty sleeping, acne, mental health issues and other insecurities.
I struggled day-in and day-out with my health and never felt as though I had control over it, but just kind of went along with it anyway, assuming constant diarrhoea was ‘normal’. Perhaps this was just life? I’m sure many of you can relate.
It wasn’t until I became a mum that I realised that something much more serious was going on. Me feeling “not quite right” all my life had bigger consequences than I had ever thought possible. When my young children became very ill I was determined to do anything I could to change the course of their lives, as I’m sure many of you parents out there can also relate to.
I eagerly began reading all of the research available and I learnt firsthand what we’ve always known – that all disease begins in the gut.
I enrolled in a further study and began experimenting with fermented foods and probiotics, all whilst looking after a very sick child and continually battling with my own health issues and, although I began noticing some very small changes in our family’s overall health, it still wasn’t enough. You see, the problem is that our guts are often so damaged from things such as medications, antibiotics, preservatives, painkillers and stress that it is often not as simple as popping a probiotic pill or drinking a green smoothie and thinking you’ll be OK. This damage has literally become embedded in our DNA and is being passed down for generations. Scarily, it is becoming the new health ‘norm’.
Kultured Wellness yoghurt and kefir starters were developed out of pure necessity and desperation as I sought to provide my children and I with the high-dose probiotic nourishment that they needed to heal in a way that we could afford, that our family could tolerate, and in a manner that would help us achieve our real health.
My entire immediate and extended family all began consuming the cultures and noticing vast improvements in their health and wellness. It wasn’t until my very dear and much loved Grand-Pappa gave me the support and courage to bring my culture starters to the public was Kultured Wellness born.
My cultures are now nourishing thousands of people, around the world, and literally changing lives- in all age groups, as people begin to regain control of their health. This is something that I’m extremely proud of.
Where We Are Now
Kultured Wellness has now grown to a team of Health Professionals who are all passionate and educated about all things gut health and are determined to help change the way you live. We are now a team of individuals who have come together to get back real health, one gut at a time.
We don’t just make cultures, we also now offer an array of herbal supplements (which are all handpicked, specially designed for our clients' needs and organic) – check out what we stock in our shop– as well as a selection of health and wellness consultations ranging from one-off one-hour consults to the crème de la crème, the 6 months Kultured Wellness Program.
One Off, One Hour Consultations
These are a new addition to what’s on offer at KW HQ. We constantly get emails from people who require help but perhaps aren’t quite ready for the 6-month program and we completely understand this, so these are now on offer. It is a once off consultation with one of our team members where we can address all of your immediate concerns. You know when something isn’t ‘quite right’- that’s your instinct - and we know how to address it - that’s our insight - so we will work together and arrange a plan that suits your lifestyle needs. It does not matter where in the world you are located, either, as Skype consultations are our speciality!

The Kultured Wellness program assists individuals and families facing complex health challenges. We support clients over an extended period of time (6 months) to undertake diet and lifestyle changes to bring about significant change to their health. This program is a comprehensive, multi-faceted approach that is tailored to your individual needs. We are here to guide you and walk you through it, and will be by your side until you have achieved optimal health and wellness.

At Kultured Wellness We Are HUGE Advocates Of Individualised Healthcare
It,essentially, is what KW was founded on as I knew my son needed different treatment than what was available at the time. However, every ‘specialist’ I took him to never once looked at him for who he was - an individual. So this is something that I feel very passionately about, as does my team.
We strongly suggest genetic testing and a faecal microbial balance test, especially for individuals who undertake the 6-month program so we know exactly how your DNA roadmap is impacting your overall health. We may also suggest some separate testing, such as specific nutrient levels or thyroid levels, etc. This is, of course, on a case-by-case basis.
If you are interested in taking your health to the next level and would like to book in for a consultation with Kultured Wellness, whether it be for a once off consultation or an initial consultation to join the 6-month program (even after initial consultation there is no obligation to join) please email firstname.lastname@example.org
From the inside out to the outside in, your gut flora affects everything. By looking at what is going on in your gut, we can treat what is going on with your body and mind. This is why we are gut crazy! If you’re suffering from a health condition, whether mental and/or physical, we can help.
And that, my dear Kultured Wellness fans, is the guts of it!
