Hi! I’m Lauren, a kiwi girl originally from the West Coast of the South Island. Let me tell you a wee bit about myself…
My natural health journey began in my 20s, when after eating and drinking far too much of everything, I developed a nasty bout of IBS. All blood test results were normal and was told nothing was wrong, even though I was curled up on the floor in pain, and frequently clearing rooms with outrageous gas - bloated constantly, having recurrent yeast infections and knowing that something was not right.
I went for a colonic and met the Naturopath who would change my life - not only treat my condition but taught me about how diet, lifestyle and natural medicine can change lives.
Travelling the world teaching snowboarding and exploring, I studied Yoga and Massage in India, and Massage in Thailand. Loving these practices I had a thirst to learn more about internal medicine, so when my youngest child was 2, I began my 5 year journey studying to be a Naturopath.
I am truly fascinated by the human body - it's variance, it's incredible healing mechanisms and it's resiliance. I understand that healthy is our natural state, and am passionate about sharing my knowledge and perspective to help others achieve this state - experiencing life to the fullest.
To fill my own tank I enjoy being at home with my family, in the garden, practicing and teaching yoga, hiking, mountain biking, climbing and having a laugh with friends.
