142. Optimal Health, the Healthy Gut, and Learning from Your Childhood with Rebecca Coomes

Rebecca Coomes spent most of her life feeling sick. Born two months premature, her immune system was compromised and saw her develop food intolerances, a damaged gut and an autoimmune disease by her mid 20s.

Sick of feeling sick and tired, she saw countless doctors who didn’t know what was wrong with her. She was told she had IBS and a sensitive stomach, with no clues on how to cure this. She was frustrated, depressed and angry that her life wasn’t going the way she had planned. After years of illness, Rebecca took matters into her own hands.

Changing her thoughts, how she moved and healing her gut saw her transform her life. Rebecca is passionate about sharing her success with other women, showing them how they can take back control of their lives and begin living the lives they know they should.

Who would you love to have dinner with and where?

“At the moment, it would be D. Alison Siebecker. She is based in the states and she is an amazing woman who is really pushing the boundaries. And I think she is fantastic and I would love to sit down over dinner with her. Obviously I got friendly meal.”

Last meal on the planet?

“I love steak and I love seafood so it would probably have to be a Surf and Turf because I couldn’t choose between the two of them. And for the dessert, well you know, I cured myself from my sweet tooth. So it wouldn’t be something sweet. It would probably be some beautiful cheese from Frankford Australia.”
