Hi, I'm Nadene
I'm all about personal transformation, delicious recipes and whole body wellness without deprivation. I believe we are all capable of creating a life we love, while feeling great on the inside and looking FANTASTIC on the outside.
My journey to wellness is not new. I was the kid who was always sick, often missing weeks of school at a time. I suffered from severe gastrointestinal dysfunction and a laundry list food allergies, leading to a weakened and compromised immune system.I got bronchitis several times a year, ear infections, UTI's .. the list is long. In my early 20's, I started getting eczema.
I'd exhausted all medical options by this point, so I knew I had to take matters into my own hands. I radically changed my diet and committed to following this new plan strictly for 2 months. By the end of the 3rd week on this new eating plan, I had one small eczema spot left on my left hand. Not only did the eczema heal, but my gut started to heal as well. This blew my mind! The only thing I changed was my diet! Could food really be THIS powerful in reversing a condition I'd lived with for nearly 15 years?
This all prompted me to use my experiences in a positive way by becoming a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. I want to see people living healthy, fun-filled, purpose-driven lives and if your health is less than optimal, it takes so much away from the amazing life we're here to experience.
I also completed my Functional Medicine Training through the leading FM training school in the country, The School of Applied Functional Medicine, to earn my Applied Functional Medicine Certification (AFMC). This will allow me to serve my clients at a much deeper level, taking a Functional Medicine approach to wellness, partnering with them in the quest for real answers, supporting them through the healing process and witnessing as they achieve optimal health and truly thrive.
