Michelle Lambert

Michelle has a background in senior corporate roles and running her own business that spans decades. Like many others, Michelle found the pressure most of us find ourselves in with work and family life took a toll on her lifestyle and subsequent health. Realising at last that she was in an intolerable situation she decided to find the cause of these many health issues and addressed them. In early 2016 Michelle undertook the Kultured Wellness Program with a view to overcoming her many food intolerances and gut problems. Not only did the program address these issues but it also cleared up a plethora of other symptoms that she had considered as just being part of getting older. These included a foggy head, dry skin, thin hair, pains in joints, low energy levels, weak nails and other things that were “annoying” , but it turned out that they too were indicators of gut dysbiosis. During this journey Michelle undertook formal study into this field to give structure to her thirst for learning and research about the gut and how it was impacting her health. Having lived the Kultured Wellness journey and finished her qualifications Michelle is now one of our Health Coaches who like her peers have all been through this themselves. What better resources to support you on your journey than someone who understands what you are going through not only at an intellectual level but also a physical and emotional one.
