Welcome! I am Lauren and I will be your guide to inspiring your quest to health and wellness today.
Much like many of you, I have been on a journey to transform myself into the healthiest person that I can be. I was inspired to embark on such a journey because of many long standing problems that I was no longer willing to deal with. I had a chronic foggy head, frequent hives, insomnia, pms, hair loss, low energy and worst of all irritable bowel. Meaning I could not eat anything that had any trace of fat in it. Talk about no fun!
While I always thought that I was healthy, meaning I ate relatively well and exercised often, I kept getting sick and worst of all, I just did not feel that great. My dad always put it so well “Lauren, you are the unhealthiest, healthy person I know.” So, after the millionth night of not being able to fall asleep for 3 plus hours, I decided to make a life change. I began to delve into health books, see alternative practitioners and even changed my college coursework to nutrition.
Slowly but surely, I began to see differences. But the biggest difference came with the change in my mindset. I am absolutely, positively in love with the healthy lifestyle. The green juice in the morning, the daily hikes, the decadent raw cacao desserts, external detoxification mud packs, non-toxic skin care, my chinese herbal tinctures, gardening, positive thinking…. and that is just the beginning!
Now many years later, I have not only changed my life, but have helped others changed theirs as well. I have been fortunate enough to have worked in many aspects of the health and wellness field. From working in a successful private practice, heading a weight-loss program for the mentally disabled and working as an account executive for an international professional supplement manufacturer and distributor, to helping launch a renown raw food culinary school and restaurant, starting a juice cleanse program, creating an online educational platform for an international herbal company and acting as a nutritional editor at The Chalkboard Mag, my enthusiasm for this industry is never ending. With many practitioners and health-minded enthusiasts by my side, I have been able to create The Holy Kale so I can share with you all that I know, in hopes of inspiring you to change your life as well.
Each one of us has the capability of being outrageously healthy, happy, radiant, and ever so abundant if we just choose to be. Therefore, I hope you join me in a lifelong journey of expressing our ultimate healthy selves. Strong, Vibrant and Full of Gratitude and Love.
Now let’s get our kale on!
