Before kombucha became hip, Megan battled with a variety of health concerns that doctors struggled to link. One day, by chance, she stumbled across a book on gut health in a local bookstore. That was when her life changed and she began her journey to become The Good Gut Guru! Her path to health and wellness has lead Megan to become a nutrition coach so that she can now help others to heal. Let's get to know The Good Gut Guru as OSKE Asks…
NAME: Megan Lagerwey
DAY JOB: Copywriter & Wellness Coach
WHAT’S THE CLOSEST THING TO REAL MAGIC?
A crisp early morning run in the mountains followed by a warm cup of coffee in my favourite mug. There’s nothing that feels as good!
DESCRIBE YOUR GIRLBOSS MOMENT.
Shucks, I think it would have to be this whole year (2019). I’ve been stretched in ways that I can’t even begin to explain in writing. At the beginning of the year, my world turned upside down and all I wanted to do was run away. But I’ve learnt and changed so much over this year, it’s hasn’t been a particular moment in time. 2019 has really brought out parts of me that I love and that I will continue to nourish into the future. To mention a few practical things - I started studying at IIN and learnt so much about the human body & mind; I ran a marathon; I started coaching the most incredible women; I made some new life-long friends, which is often hard to do at this age.
HOW DID YOU LEARN WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A WOMAN?
This is something that I continue to learn everyday. There are so many complexities to being a woman, it’s a beautiful journey with the most exciting (and sometimes frustrating) twists. What a lovely thing it is to be on this journey of becoming.
WHO TAUGHT YOU WHAT LOVE IS?
WHAT IS INTIMACY?
Intimacy is a connection that goes far beyond physical touch. It’s a connection between souls, hearts, minds & bodies.
WHAT DID YOUR MOTHER TEACH YOU?
SO many things! But I definitely got my sass from her ;)
TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR BODY THAT YOU WISH YOU’D ALWAYS KNOWN?
Coming from a place of restrictive eating, I wish I had always known how much of an effect that would have on my mind, my gut health and overall well-being in the long run.
