KEVIN + JULIA

In our early 20's, we set out to find unconventional answers to Julia's health problems and improve Kevin's athletic performance as a professional golfer.

Kevin's overall physical wellness reached an all-time high and his deep passion for creativity was reignited through cooking incredibly comforting, delicious, and healing meals every day. Julia healed tremendously and realized a deep calling to help others do the same once she became her positive, strong, fun-loving self again as her body had begun healing immediately upon our lifestyle overhaul and went back to school to become a Holistic Nutritionist. Both of us have an inherent love of nature and zest for life. Above all, we have always shared an unmatched love for good food! Prior to our switch to a healthier lifestyle, we were already foodies at heart. It doesn't take too long for people to realize that we are absolutely at our happiest when eating! We are simply two energetic and compassionate mid-twenty-year olds with a quirky hairless rescue dog, Zula, and we've found our mission to change our corner of the world by sharing the abundance of knowledge we've been gifted.

Along our journey to better health, we did not only find answers to illness and peak physical performance; we found our deeper inner knowledge of wellness principles, discovered and connected with our intuitive understanding of holistic health through personal experience and education, and we developed an unwavering sense of hope for a cleaner, happier, healthier world (spoiler alert: we want to help you achieve all of this, too!) Our mission is to share with as many people as we can so that they too can flourish in a wholesome life full of possibility and free from illness, fear, and worry.

Our Approach

We believe that every single small step toward healthier living is actually a big step; whether you are looking for an entire lifestyle overhaul or to make a few small changes for the better, we are here to help you along at the pace that feels right to you. As lifetime students of wellness, we have tried dozens of methods to heal our own bodies including fad diets, trendy workout regimens, Eastern medicine, and conventional medical treatment. Our promise and mission is to share our experiences, expertise, and research to propel you forward in life, and hopefully save you the ample resources that we put forth to ultimately find simple, inexpensive keys to optimal health. Our approach is to bring you all of the knowledge and support we have to give, and assist you every step of the way to integrate what you are comfortable with. We would be honored to be on your team as you embark on the fulfilling journey to optimal wellness.

Where it started

We had initially set out to kick Julia's monthly antibiotic overuse to the curb (yes, she was on 10-12 rounds per year to stay functional) and search for answers following her childhood which was riddled with illness. As a child, she had eczema, hives, allergic reactions and frequent strep throat. That was followed by 10 years of mystery illness as a teenager/young adult with fatigue/exhaustion, reoccurring upper respiratory infections, asthma, brain fog, hot flashes, acne, weakness of limbs, elevated liver enzymes, swollen/painful lymph nodes, MRSA skin infections, achey joints, reoccurring Epstein Barr Virus (Mononucleosis), hormonal symptoms and irregular menstruation. Julia had struggled to function on a normal level without exhausting symptoms, in a vicious cycle of relying on medication, for years. It all came to a head when she reached the height of her career in real estate at age 22 and her doctor's best guess was that she had Lymphoma - thankfully, he was incorrect; but the fear had already set in and we had no real choice but to make a big change. We eventually moved from Massachusetts to Florida together so that Kevin was able to focus more diligently on his golf career, and this allowed Julia to finally focus more on finding the answers she so desperately needed in order to heal.

Along her journey, Julia was tagged with diagnoses such as: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Fibromyalgia, Lyme Disease, Hypoglycemia, Adrenal Fatigue, Immunoglobulin A (IGA) Deficiency, Celiac disease, Thyroid imbalances, Autoimmune disease, MTHFR gene mutation, and heavy metal toxicity.

 

She was able to unshackle herself from the vicious cycle of medication and illness, and from the labels of the daunting diagnoses, by finding concrete answers. We hope to share all that we can about our journey so that your health doesn't require the same sacrifice of time, effort, money, and heartache that ours did.
