Hi, I'm Natalie.
I am a Natural Nutrition Clinical Practitioner living in the beautiful mountains of Whistler, BC. I love tea, puppies & Christmas.
In 2007 I lost my Dad to suicide. A mental health illness had got him and he felt like there was no other option. What happened to me after that was a bit of a blur. I partied hard, tried to forget & stopped taking care of myself. I spent a lot of time running away from myself and my reality, that I lost sight of who I was. After realizing I was over feeling like crap I travelled around Australia and ended up meeting the love of my life. It was then the anxiety set in. All those emotions around losing my Dad came to surface and was swamped with fear that this wouldn't last. The intense fear of losing someone I loved. I spent nearly 7 years of my relationship in varied states of panic, insecurity and disconnect.
Fast forward a few years...
I knew this had to stop, it was affecting the relationships around me. After trying so many different ways of coping, I started to explore other options. I learned that my mindset, my communication & the way I ate were going to be key in helping me fight against this internal struggle. It simply started with just one documentary (Forks Over Knives), and then I ended up watching every single health, mindset & nutrition documentary available to me on Netflix. I realized this was an area I needed to dive into...head first. So, I began my studies at the Alive Academy based in Vancouver and completed my diploma in Applied Nutrition. I changed my lifestyle, my thought processes, how I communicated with myself, others & my body and so much more. I had began to build a toolbox of techniques to manage my symptoms.
I have never looked back.
Its been LIFE CHANGING!
Changing the way I communicated with myself, others and my body (the way I ate) was my answer, and I can’t even begin to explain the difference it has made to my life, my relationships and my work. It was so important for me to keep all the changes simple, straightforward and adaptable to my lifestyle. I’m the kind of person that now values the time I spend on myself. Im the kind of person that says NO to the things & activities that don't serve me, and I’m now the kind of girl who understands how important it is to take care of our mind, our body & the environment we find ourselves in. Its been an absolute game changer.
