Thank you for visiting my blog! I’m Lauren and I’m a health writer, holistic wellness coach and speaker, and at 23 months old, I was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. By 18 I was in a wheelchair and on chemotherapy, and at 29 I went into remission.
The decade between my most challenging years and my remission was spent in intensive self-study, where I used a root-cause, integrative, mind-body approach, to recondition my mind and body back to health.
Writing it all out here makes it sound so simple; it wasn’t, and it’s not. But it is possible, for anyone. As Glennon Doyle says “We can do hard things.” And I believe my purpose in life is to help others achieve their own health and happiness goals.
Whether you are suffering from chronic illness, raising children in a world of conflicting information, or you simply want to feel empowered and motivated to become the best version of yourself, let me help you do that.
My articles, talks, podcast and recipes – all created and curated lovingly with the hope of encouraging people to live their healthiest, happiest lives – are all available for free on this blog and you can read more about my story here. Thank you for visiting!
“Wellness is not merely the absence of illness. It is the state of complete physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.” – Lauren Vaknine
