Hello and thanks for visiting The Healthy Junkie, my blog, or personal website. My name is Laura Page (R.H.N.). I’m a Life Coach and Registered Holistic Nutritionist. I hope to inspire your inner healthy junkie through community, nutrition, healthy recipes and mindful stories to help us all make healthier daily decisions to maintain, or improve our overall health. In my past life, I was a junk food junkie, a cigarette smoking junkie, an alcohol junkie and a junkie with a bad attitude. Now I’m a holistic health junkie and pine for information related to the power of the body to heal on all levels; be it physical, emotional, mental or spiritual.
I live in Napa, California. I’m originally from Ontario, Canada (Toronto area). Formerly I was the Director of Marketing for a resort company and was transferred to Napa, from Whistler, BC, where my husband and I lived for many years.
Recently, I completed a memoir about how I embarked on a journey of personal transformation after being diagnosed with cancer for the third time, at twenty-five years old. I underwent my first surgery for chest tumors at twenty-one. In the end, hard-core nutrition, positive thinking, emotional corrections, and a new-found faith in myself and the unknown, resulted (finally) in the disappearance of two tumors from my chest.
My mission is to empower, motivate and inspire others to lead healthier, more fulfilled lives. Having had cancer three times—by the age of 25—has propelled me into a life of wanting to serve others and protect them from having to go through unnecessary pain and disease. I became a Registered Holistic Nutritionist to help heal myself physically. I enjoy helping others feel the connection of how nutrient-dense, whole foods can positively impact their lives. I became a Life Coach to integrate a framework that focuses on the mental and emotional aspects of wellness. Most people don’t slow down to contemplate their lives and integrate significant positive changes until there is a catastrophic event such as an illness, death or accident. I believe it is necessary to take the time to design our lives every step of the way and not wait for a wakeup call. In short, we have the power to create the life we want. Sometimes we just need a keen ear and a helping hand to help remind us of who we truly are and what we genuinely intend.
My intention with The Healthy Junkie blog and especially through the Eat Healthy Challenge
is to help myself and others find a path of moderation and enjoy long-lasting health. I would like to honor my inner-junkie by feeding her healthier options that continue to take my health and happiness into consideration. I believe the journey to health is a personal one, but journeys are always more fun taken with others. I hope you will join me through participating in this blog and reap the benefits of becoming a healthier junkie.
