I’m Lauren, creator of Empowered Sustenance.
Nutrition solved my chronic disease when medications failed. Now I want to help you step into vibrant health.
Like many of you, I know the burden of chronic illness. 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.
With dedication to grain-free nutrition and a holistic lifestyle, I freed myself of all disease symptoms, all medications, and the threat of surgery.
My mission at Empowered Sustenance? To show you the simple steps on your path to vibrant health.
I am 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 due to other (exciting!) projects on my plate which I will share soon.
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 a 21st Century Hippie
This girl right here. I call myself a 21st Century Hippie, dedicated to holistic health from the inside out and outside in. I’m not scared by eco-friendly, non-toxic menstrual cups or butter or raw milk.
I am on a journey to vibrant health.
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 used to equate my health challenges with a failure to be perfect. Then I realized… health is never perfect. Instead, health is a dynamic journey to not only physical health, but also emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
Vibrant health is your greatest potential, and I want to empower your journey. Welcome to the Empowered Sustenance community!
