Hi there, my name is Laura Ashley and I’m a former Professional Make-Up Artist turned Certified Holistic Nutritionist who is a natural skin care advocate and health food junkie! I am extremely passionate about educating and helping individuals meet their personal needs and goals through holistic nutrition. This passion comes from my own personal experiences and struggles with various health issues for most of my life.
This path started at a fairly young age as I was diagnosed with several gastrointestinal conditions, and further down the road I also developed severe endocrine disorders. This lead to years of medications to treat my symptoms without ever getting to the root cause, which ultimately took a toll on my entire body. That was also the point where my skin took a turn for the worse as I had developed severe acne, eczema, and various skin rashes…which also meant more over the counter drugs! By the time I was 19 I was essentially unable to work or pursue any form of education, which was also the point when I realized I needed to make change…
So after years of seeking many conventional treatments I decided to turn to natural health alternatives. This also lead to 5 years of extensive research, and through the power of holistic nutrition my body is now thriving and I’m able to live the life I have always wanted to live!
In the beginning of 2016 I decided to continue my passion for natural health and enrolled in The Institute of Holistic Nutrition, where I completed the program with honours. As cliché as it may sound…I truly believe everything happens for a reason as I can now use my story and help others thrive, which truly makes this whole journey worth while!!!
