About Britt's Health Tips

Started running at age 9 and always loved learning about nutrition and health. When I was 17 years old, 30lbs over weight and diagnosed with hypo-thyroidism I decided to heal myself through diet and exercise. Having fully recovered from that and having three children I have learned how to effectively heal my children through diet. I decided through pressure from friends to document my success on a blog and here I am. 2018 will be a big year for me. I hope to be well on my way to finishing my degree in Pediatric Nutrition.
