Filipa Bellette had two pregnancies that resulted in traumatic consequences for her body, physically and emotionally. Her bladder stopped working, which required internal catheters and extreme dosages of antibiotics. Both of her newborns also suffered health issues.
Inspired by a book on nutrition, Filipa worked on solving the devastation to her body and became an accredited Clinical Nutritionist, specializing in Functional Medicine.
Filipa is the co-owner of Chris and Filly in Australia, where she and her husband help parents, especially moms, overcome health challenges brought on by pregnancy and professional burnout. Filipa is a PhD scholar and thought leader on Functional Medicine and Chris holds a degree is Human Movement Science. Together they have programs to help what Filipa calls Dragon Moms and Zombie Dads become healthier.

The Piketon Massacre
The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
