About Amy Benn
Hi, I’m so glad to have found you,
Wholeheart Magazine has been a project of mine in the making for many years. I became very health conscious, at age 14, after my diagnosis of Crohns disease. I was incredibly inspired by the care I received as a teenage patient, I knew I wanted to help others, so I naturally gravitated towards nursing.
Managing my health and well-being became quite challenging as I perused my chosen specialty of Intensive Care Nursing in one of Melbourne’s major metropolitan hospitals, and becoming a teacher of the Nursing profession. Alongside my post-graduate academia in Health, I studied Meditation, Fitness and Nutrition. All in the pursuit of absorbing more knowledge and understanding to implement positive lifestyle habits within my own life, to improve my own health.
I found that incorporating a balanced lifestyle which consisted of restorative practices, eating more healthy whole foods, lifting weights, a connection to nature, my community and those close to me, has helped me strengthen my immune system. Which has dramatically improved my health.
I fell into fitness modeling as a side career after I set a goal to train for my first photo shoot in 2015, and I helped others with their health and fitness goals.
My vision is to equip Nurses, Midwives and Health Professionals with the knowledge and understanding I perused for myself, to cope with the demands of working in health care, and to enhance their own lives through great health and well-being.
I now experience medication-free remission from Crohns Disease and the best health of my life. I believe our biggest opportunities lie in our challenges. And, the greatest investment we can ever make, is one in ourselves, and our wellness.
