About The Teacher

Nutritional Therapist and Co-founder of CALA Retreats

Laurie gained her DipCNM in Nutritional Therapy from the prestigious College of Naturopathic Medicine and has been practicing since 2013. Nutritional therapy encourages the use of whole and organic foods as medicine and addresses the root cause of illness, not just the symptoms, and accepts that given the right conditions the body has the capacity to heal itself. It is vital to approach each person individually as everyone’s requirements are different.

Nutritional therapy is key to addressing so many issues in life and a poor diet can manifest itself in so many negative ways including stress and fatigue. By educating clients to understand the cause of the problem she makes it her priority to set them on the path to better physical and mental health. Laurie has made it her passion to share her knowledge through 121 consultations and talks both in social groups and the corporate world , inspiring others to make the right food choices. Food really is our medicine..

Having experienced first hand the positive effects that retreats have on your health and wellbeing, Laurie can attest that simply taking time out to focus on oneself is truly life-changing. Teaming up with Carolyne Ji to create CALA Retreats made perfect sense as they both have an invested interest in helping people to feel great about themselves.

Chocolate, anything over 70% she finds hard to resist, thank goodness the cacao bean is full full of magnesium and is great for the heart..

So that I am rejuvenated to be the best I can be in my relationships - personal, work and in Society - offering and giving to be of benefit to others! Laura
