Let’s get to know each other.
IF WE HAVEN’T MET BEFORE, HI! I’M DR. LAUREN.
I’m a Naturopathic Doctor on a mission to help frazzled, tired, and go-go-go moms regain control of their lives and transform into mamas who are Healthy AF*.
(* A.K.A. a mama who has the energy, motivation, and health acumen to get sh*t done while also supporting herself.)
And this mission… is a personal one.
As a new mama of 2 kids, I’ve come to realize that motherhood is one heck of an energy suck! Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my husband, my daughter, my son, and my dog… but for a long time, my mom life was running at a breakneck speed.
→ BEING ON THE GO-GO-GO THE ENTIRE DAY
→ BOUNCING FROM MEALS TO SNACKS TO
NAPS TO DAYCARE TO PLAY TO DOG WALKS
THEN RINSING & REPEATING 3 TIMES
→ WORKING FROM HOME, GROCERY SHOPPING
& TRYING TO CLEAN A HOUSE (YUP, ALL AT
THE SAME TIME)
Like all moms, even if I was tired, I just KEPT GOING. Because that’s just what you do, right?
Or, at least, that’s what I did until the day I had my Big Lightbulb Moment. 💡
That afternoon, after what had to be my fourth coffee at least, I said the words “I’m tired” for the 10th time that day… and suddenly thought: Holy sh*t’, I don’t think this is just normal “mom tired.” (Whatever normal “mom tired” even means!)
My big realization:
our physiology and bodies aren’t meant to be pushed to the limits, day-in and day-out. Lack of sleep, poor diet, excess caffeine, stress, sugar, and too little movement are a recipe for D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R when it comes to our digestive systems and hormones. The idea that we can keep up this #mom-hustle lifestyle indefinitely is unrealistic… no matter what Instagram tells you.
To have you experience your own Big Lightbulb Moment... then get you back to a place where you feel like yourself again. Where you have the energy to get things done, the wisdom to choose the right foods for you and your family, and the motivation to slow the go-go-go. (Your belly and your hormones will thank you for it!)
Wait, I hear you saying now:
WHY SHOULD I LISTEN TO THIS VERY CHARMING LADY ON THE INTERNET? WHO EVEN IS SHE?
I get it. This is the part of the website where I lay out my bona fides.
FUN DR. LAUREN FACTS!
I graduated from the University of Guelph with an Honours Biological Science degree (Woo! Go, Gryphons!)
Now that you know
a little about me,
I’D LOVE TO GET TO KNOW YOU! IF YOU'RE READY TO TAKE BACK CONTROL OF YOUR MOM LIFE AND CREATE A BEAUTIFUL, BOLD, AND BALANCED LIFESTYLE, I'M HERE TO HELP.
BECAUSE LIFE IS WAY TOO SHORT TO LOWER
YOUR STANDARDS TO “FINE.”
