About Natural Family Today

Hi, I'm Vanessa.

I write this blog because I know how it feels to take those first steps to a healthier lifestyle. It wasn't until I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2007 that I realized our family needed to change the way we lived.

I began by changing our diet in order to heal. Our goal was to eat “real food” as consistently as possible. For us, that meant traditional / WAPF (Weston A. Price Foundation) foods. We also tried the GAPS healing diet for over 6 months with astounding results.

Although we were healing and eating healthier, I was still severely overweight. I started a Keto / Low Carb diet in August 2015. As of July 2017 I have lost a whopping 79 lbs. The last time I can remember feeling this healthy was before my oldest child was born in 2006. I've begun incorporating fitness into my healthy living routine.

My passion for helping people has led me to pursue various related educational opportunities. I attended classes to become a Life Coach at Light University Online in 2014. These classes gave me the basic knowledge needed to help people set and achieve their personal and professional life goals.

I am currently pursuing a Bachelors of Science in Psychology at University of Nebraska at Kearney. After that I plan to pursue a PhD in either Social Psychology or Sociology.
