A Message From The Founder
Plant-powered diet and medicine has been a massive part on my journey to health.
I suffered with mental and physical illness for almost half of my life (depression, anxiety disorder, several surgeries, high blood pressure, extreme dieting that caused me to lose my gallbladder, substance abuse).
At my tipping point, I was 50lbs over weight, and sleeping away large parts of my days because of severe clinical depression and terrible fibromyalgia symptoms. I woke up every morning with my first thoughts of the day being shame at the way my body looked and felt.
After watching the documentary “Food Matters”, I changed my way of thinking. I became angry at the companies who were deliberately distributing nutrient-free “food” and the culture of toxic convenience.
So I made the decision to start putting real, vibrant things into my body to see what would happen. For the first time, I focused on health instead of looks. And it worked.
A combination of a plant-focused diet, juicing, meditation and spiritual practise, lots of exercise, a new-found connection to nature, and only one necessary prescription (I used to be on 7), I was able to get to a healthy weight, acquire energy, mental stability, and confidence that I didn’t think I’d ever experience.
After a few short months on my journey, a new world opened up to me. Full of opportunity and adventure, and I was more than able to take all on now.
I sold my ad agency, everything I owned, and moved to SE Asia and haven’t looked back. Everyday I’m amazed and grateful for the incredible things I’m able to accomplish.
Even though I had lost a substantial amount of weight, I was still suffering from high blood pressure (for 8 years). When I discovered chaga, I was tested again after a month of taking it and was shocked to discover it had drastically improved! It also kept me from getting the frequent colds and flu I had always been accustomed to.
After that I knew I had to share the magical medicinal mushroom chaga with the world and founded Wild Remedies. Merging my love of nature, plant medicine, and chaga <3
My mission is to discover new wild remedies from all over the globe to reach optimal health, and to not be so hard on myself while I strive for health and balance, rather than perfection.
I’m in the process of attracting and building an incredible team of humans who are on the same mission of natural health, support, and coaching. So get ready for some exciting products, ideas, and opportunities! ✨
Let’s heal together! I want to hear YOUR health successes (and failures), natural remedies, health hacks, and goals, so we can share, support, and help ourselves and our planet THRIVE.
