WHO IS KIRA SUTHERLAND?
Using my 25+ years of clinical experience I have combined my knowledge of Naturopathic medicine with my education in sports nutrition to create a truly wholistic approach to optimising performance for athletes and those striving for optimum health.
Having lectured both within Australia and internationally on all things Naturopathic and sports nutrition. I am passionate about teaching people to take care of their bodies for the long term, not just treating them in the present moment. I believe that the role of a practitioner is to empower and teach her clients to take care of themselves, to give them as much knowledge as possible.
Currently, I live in Australia with my 14-year-old daughter and super-fast age group triathlon husband and am gearing up for another Winter Season in Canada skiing as much as possible!
