My name is Laureen Wallravin and I’m a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. I work to balance and heal the body with a diet based on real food. By “real food” I mean whole, unprocessed, nutrient-dense food – the food our body thrives on. Food has been used to heal for centuries. We’ve all heard the saying “food is our medicine and medicine is our food.” Well, somewhere along the line we forgot this incredibly important knowledge. That’s where I come in! Our bodies are an amazing mechanism with an innate intelligence capable of self-healing. If we feed it the proper nutrients, vitamins, and minerals we can live long and, more importantly, healthy and happy lives. Let me help you take charge of your health!
