Hi, I’m Katie, the “Wellness Mama” and my goal is to help other families live more naturally through practical tips, real food recipes, natural beauty and cleaning tutorials, natural remedies and more. Why Wellness Mama? It all started for me almost a decade ago when my first son was born. I was sitting in the doctors office at my follow up visit and I read in a magazine that was sitting on the side table that: ..For the first time in centuries, the current generation of children will have a shorter life expectancy than their parents… That hit me like a ton of bricks. I was holding my perfect newborn and reading about how his generation would face higher rates of cancer, heart disease, autoimmune disease and other many other health problems. That day, my life changed and I decided to work to change that statistic. It’s been a long journey for me, through four more pregnancies, finding out that I have a thyroid disease and working to find answers, and completely changing my family’s lifestyle from eating pasta and using chemical cleaners to real food and natural homemade products. My goal is to help make the transition to living naturally easier for you than it has been for me, and to share my own journey (since we’re always learning and growing).
