I’m Lauren Geertsen, and I want to give you a headstart on your healing journey.
This is the truth about healing I had to discover for myself:
Our health is in our hands. We are all strong enough to make the changes required to transform our health.
My healing journey led me to experience the power of nutrition and lifestyle. At 14, I was diagnosed with a severe form of ulcerative colitis, an autoimmune disease. At 18, after years of disastrous medications, I saw my future dreams darkened when doctors said my only option was surgical removal of my colon.
At that point, with nothing and everything to lose, I took my health into my hands even though my doctors told me, “food doesn’t work.” I made dramatic changes to how I ate and how I lived. Within three days, my acute symptoms were gone. Within three months, I was able to taper of all of my prescription drugs.
Now, I want to give you a headstart on your healing journey. At Empowered Sustenance, I share the simple steps that freed my life of chronic disease and medication.
I am on a journey to vibrant health.
When I was faced with an unmanageable autoimmune disease, nutrition empowered me to heal my body and soul. On the other end of the spectrum, I’ve used food to numb myself and struggled with anorexia at a young age. My journey to vibrant health means redefining disease, making radical peace with my body, and making radical peace with food.
I’ve learned there is no path from Point A: Unhealthy to Point B: Healthy, which is why I call myself a Recovering Health Perfectionist. I believe health is a dynamic journey to not only physical wellness, but also emotional and spiritual wellbeing. That’s how I’m healing to my core. If you believe that as well, you’re in the right place.
I’m A Nutritional Therapy Practitioner
My healing journey took countless hours of research, including certification as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) through the Nutritional Therapy Association. NTA fit my philosophy and provided the clinical assessment tools I wanted to tailor wellness protocols for clients. I appreciate so many of your reaching out with requests to be a client, but I am currently not practicing.
I am an author.
When I empowered my health, I unexpectedly and vibrantly empowered my life. I was able to pursue the things I love: writing, creating recipes, and connecting with like-minded people.
Available on Amazon, my books Quit PMS: End Your Menstrual Misery and Quit Acne: The Nutritional Approach for Clear Skin have given thousands the tools they need to transform their lives through nutrition.
I am co-founder of Meo Energetics
I co-created Meo Energetics to share with you the unique formulations that profoundly supported my physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. When I used these formulations, I became more ME: freer, clearer, and more alive. “So this is what life is supposed to feel like!” I realized
Our formulator, innovative health practitioner John Tjenos, was inspired by the recent discovery in neuroscience that light, lasers and electricity are all forms of energy that health the brain. He pioneered the approach of using essential oils as an energetic therapy to support specific brain functions.
