Lauren Vaknine is a mama, nutritionist, holistic wellness and parenting coach, freelance journalist and author. Lauren was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis before her second birthday, and was wheelchair-bound by the age of 18 following a year on a chemo-based drug that robbed her of her hair, her liver, her wellbeing and nearly, her life.
After a decade-long journey spent learning about the body, nutrition, epigenetics, and a root cause approach to healthcare, she finally went into remission in her late-twenties, and now spends her time sharing her knowledge with others through her writing, live events, and now, this podcast!
Lauren has written for publications such as Huffington Post, Scary Mommy, The Green Parent, The Natural Parent, What Doctors Don’t Tell You, Health & Homeopathy and more. She is patient spokesperson for The Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine, trustee of the British Homeopathic Association and has been invited to speak and host events at the Houses of Parliament to campaign for accessibility for complementary and alternative medicine, and raise awareness into the rise in chronic childhood illness.
“I believe the only way to bring true balance to the body, and subsequently achieve long-lasting health, is by following a root-cause, individualised approach to healthcare. That means not using one modality of treatment in isolation, but instead using all the natural healthcare tools available to us; through homeopathy, naturopathy, functional medicine, nutrition, and a deep understanding of the body in all its nuanced brilliance. Elevating our vibrational frequency is just as important for our health, and I’m equally devoted to both models of consciousness. We are human beings not human doings, therefore we must devote our time equally between our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. It’s time we took our healthcare into our own hands.”
