My name is Francesca and I’m a Registered Nurse living in Ontario, Canada. While I would say that natural health defines me, it’s the idea of helping as many people as possible that drives my goals and aspirations.
I’m an avid natural health promoter, and it all started when I decided I had enough of suffering endlessly with acne in my late teen years. It took some patience and dedication, but I ditched the medicated creams and achieved clear skin using only natural methods. My skin isn’t perfect as I don’t have the good skin genes on my side, but it’s almost entirely pimple and scar-free. My results sparked the idea of my first ebook entitled The AcneBuster Lifestyle Program. You can access it here.
My natural health journey continues when, a few years later during my undergraduate degree, I was diagnosed with a form of ulcerative colitis. I began the steroid regimen and it helped for a few weeks, but my symptoms came back raging. As prescribed, I took the steroids a few more times, and every single time my colitis flared up again. I was worried that my case required stronger treatment, as suggested by my gastroenterologist. Following many hours of research, I decided to try a natural treatment alternative that consisted of supplements, a special diet, colon cleansing and detox. Today, I’m proud to say that I have been flare-free for nearly 2 years. And best of all, I’m not dependent on a single medication.
We are all different, and my case of acne and ulcerative colitis may differ from yours. However, the natural & holistic treatment alternative worked and continues to work for me, and for that reason I’m promoting it with my entire heart and soul.
About My Page
Welcome to The Naturally Hip, a blog dedicated towards helping you achieve a more natural lifestyle!
During my undergrad I became conscious of how toxic and chemically-laden our environment is, or has the potential to be. As scary as it sounds, I made the choice to ditch conventional brand names. I began making my own face, body & hair products using simple household ingredients. I invested in essential oils and learned how to use them according to their unique properties. I’ve discovered so many natural alternatives through research and trial & error over the years that I feel compelled to share it with as many readers as possible.
The 3 ultimate goals in mind when creating The Naturally Hip are the following:
- To empower readers to take control of their own health and well-being. Know exactly what you are putting on your skin and into your body;
- To raise readers’ awareness about the harmful chemicals found in today’s body products;
- To inspire readers to make the shift towards a more natural way of life via DIY’s, evidence-based research, and my own personal experiences.
I aspire to pursue my education to become a Holistic Health Nurse Practitioner. Doing so would allow me to more closely help patients and their families attain a lifestyle that balances alternative therapies/remedies with conventional Western medicine.
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you the best on your journey to natural wellness!
