Rockin’ Women Wednesdays – Nat Kringoudis
I first met Nat Kringoudis at my “How To Build A Successful Wellness Business” seminar in Melbourne in 2009. I asked the audience if they had an elevator pitch – a one sentence, non-salesy description of what they do. Nat’s little paw immediately shot up and she announced “I make babies”. Right answer! We’ve been buddies ever since. I love Nat wholeheartedly for so many reasons that I just had to share some of her stories with you here for RWW. No, she’s not a musician, though I’m sure she sings her babies to sleep on occasion – and she does play a mean air guitar, which qualifies her in my book!
Seriously, she has more cred in the wellness business than anyone else I know – and that’s why I celebrate her.
Dr. Nat Kringoudis is a fully qualified doctor of Chinese medicine, an acupuncturist, author, speaker and all-round natural fertility expert. She’s also the founder of Melbourne women’s health clinic, The Pagoda Tree, and producer of HealthTalks TV. Here’s one of my favourite episodes with Nat and I in the kitchen at Trupps Cooking School. Oh my stars did we laugh! So too did our co-hosts Melissa Ambrosini and Jess Ainscough behind the scenes! Take a look below and get the kelp noodle salad recipe here
Balance your hormones, balance your life
Clinically, what makes Nat stand out is that she is Australia’s natural fertility expert. To her, fertility is so much more than making babies, and being more fertile can actually improve your general health and wellbeing. And even if you’re a long way off wanting a bun in the oven, priming your body now will increase your chances of conceiving in the future. It’s her mission to educate and empower women so they can get clued up on your body and take control of their hormonal health.
“I make women’s hormones happier than a Pharrell Williams song.”
– Dr. Nat Kringoudis
We share a strong bond when it comes to being informed health practitioners, and are always on the hunt for the facts, up-to-date clinical trails and case studies. Our collective soul purpose is the pursuit of the universal truth that food is medicine and the body can heal itself given the right produce, pathways and mindset. Nat’s first book which she self-published is Fertilise Yourself.
So if you’re sick of swimming in the depths of desperation, being stuck in a fertility funk or living in hormone hell, then head over to Nat’s new, improved, ultra shiny, shimmering website where you’ll see her radiant beauty, knowledge and downright, down to earth enthusiasm bounce of the pages and into your head and heart.
