My story short

I am a German T1D living in the UK. Close friends call me travel junkie as it is a passion of mine. I have been living in Namibia, Mauritius, Australia and Ireland and travelled to nearly 40 countries. My last 15 years I have mainly spend in english speaking countries and that’s also why I decided to do this podcast in english. Sorry for all mistakes I made so far and will do in future ;););)

I am a certified nutritionist and hold a science degree in Biology. After diagnosis over 4 years ago my immune system weakened radically due to misguided diabetes management and unresognized intolerance towards a specific insulin. I did everything my doctors told me and yet my life was falling apart.

I was deluded to believe a rolercoaster of bloodsugar was my failure to carb counting, that feeling low and having lost the control over my body was my new life. I got given no alternative approach to a standard western diet and diabetes management as a whole.

That drove me to find a better way for myself. I started challenging the common believes around T1 diets and began biohacking. I modified the ketogenic diet to match my T1 needs and introduced mindfulness practices, which let to a great number of amazing results.

Some of my results:

  • maintain very balanced blood sugars and a healthy Hba1c
  • have very few and light hypoglycemic events –> low blood sugar events (2/month)
  • reduced my insulin medication massively and with that long term risks
  • increased my insulin sensitivity
  • keep my weight
  • robuster immune system, less flues

And all this has a massive impact on my personal life:

  • I am more in control of my body
  • I feel generally saver and less scared to do stuff
  • my moods are stable and I feel much happier
  • my entire quality of live returned and I have more mental clarity and focus to do other things, rather than be occupied with this diafriend.

All of that I wish to share with you in this podcast!
