Sharon hespe – the good gut girl
I am a degree-qualified naturopath (Bachelor of Naturopathy) who believes in open communication to ensure better treatment and results.
My very first patient had food intolerance issues. I quickly discovered that food was the key to vibrant health, and EVERYTHING comes back to the gut because it plays such a major role in all aspects of our health and wellbeing.
I had some gut issues myself and realised the need to further study in the field. I continue to do that.
We are what we eat, and sometimes we can eat ourselves sick. I have seen the impact of removing certain foods from my clients’ diets and then watching as their health improves indescribably.
It’s just wonderful when I get it right and clients tell me how great they feel living with a new, superior “normal” – nothing like the painful one they thought they had to endure.
I truly love what I do.
The Good Gut Girl
you do not need to struggle with debilitating gut symptoms.
During my many years as a naturopath, I have repeatedly seen the same foods causing problems for people – foods that many of us have been actively encouraged to consume to achieve glowing health. I have also witnessed people’s pain as they struggle with mysterious, debilitating gut symptoms that could have been eradicated long ago should the answers have been made available.
The truth – there are many possible reasons for your tummy troubles. It could be food intolerances, SIBO, fructose malabsorption, candida, gut dysbiosis, parasites… the list goes on.
The good news – you do not need to struggle with debilitating gut symptoms.
There is a huge range of symptoms which can indicate poor gut health. Health conditions such as depression, anxiety, fatigue, tiredness, gut pain, bloating, arthritis, itchy ears, constant runny nose, post nasal drip, smelly stools, smelly flatulence, asthma, constipation, diarrhoea, headaches, migraines, insomnia, itchy skin, hives, sleep disturbances, fluid retention and weight control. If your child is suffering, it could show up as bed wetting or behavioural problems.
You may have one symptom or many. None are ‘normal’ and you don’t have to live with them.
Take some simple steps today towards improving your gut health – and your life.
It’s possible to live a happy healthy life without gut problems.
“I took my son Myron to see Sharon as I was concerned about his fussy eating and the possibility that he may have pyrrole disorder.
Sharon recommended we remove wheat and A1 dairy from his diet, and to run a hair tissue mineral analysis to check on his mineral levels, before proceeding with more invasive blood tests. We made the changes and gave him some supplements to balance his mineral levels according to the test results.
After a couple of weeks, Myron was starting to feel much better. His fussiness around foods has gone, he no longer complains about a sore tummy, his appetite has improved and he has put on weight.”

“I just wanted to thank you for your help last year. I had 33 years of suffering with IBS issues, pain, bloating, diarrhea and constipation, but after working with you for a few months I have become free of pain.
Your testing, advice and support has seen me change my diet, take required supplements to rectify and rebalance my gut, and you explained everything so I understood what was going on.
Having fewer gut problems has really improved my outlook and surprisingly my rheumatoid arthritis has eased up too.
Your recipes and suggestions for food swaps to stay kind to my gut has also been really helpful and allows me to enjoy food without feeling like I am missing out. Thank you.”
“I just wanted to let you know what an amazing difference you have made to my health and wellbeing over the last year.
As you know my health has improved dramatically from when you first saw me. I’ve gone from being on several medications (none of which were working very well anyway!) and having lost my ability to participate in most of my everyday sporting and work activities due to pain and various medical issues.
I have gone from struggling to finish a Pilates class to coming second in the NSW State Masters 4x100m relay. I am now feeling great, energised and back to my full six-days-a-week training schedule.
I’m really grateful for your ongoing insight, assistance, and support. Thank you”.
