Holly from Restoring our Roots – About me

I am an RN in the United States. I have practised in mainstream medicine, but have shifted into holistic medicine in the last few years. I love showing people the way the body can heal itself!

My mission

I spent the first 6 years of my career studying illnesses, diseases, and medical science. It wasn’t until I worked in a hospital that I saw first hand how dangerous and damaging our way of life has become. I encountered hundreds of patients turning to pharmaceuticals to manage their chronic disease, only to end up in a worse state or burdened with side effects. In my home life, I saw many of my friends and family struggling with their own health battles—unable to lose weight, constant lack of energy, insomnia, gastrointestinal illness, etc. Instead of seeking the root cause of these ailments, they would turn to pharmaceuticals or popular supplement lines to mask the issue. My mission became these people, helping them get back to their true roots of health.

There is no substitute for a healthy lifestyle. Restoring Our Roots’ mission is to help you explore the areas you can improve on in your life, to get you back to your healthiest state. Whether it’s ditching the dangerous chemicals or cleaning up your diet, we are here to help you on your journey.

How I got into Blogging/Instagramming

I started blogging mainly to reach out to my friends and family. I used to get endless questions about various health issues and therapies, so in an effort to escape some of the phone calls, my husband and I built Restoring Our Roots. Quickly thereafter, we found there were a lot more people interested in what we had to share. Now, blogging has become a great platform for us to reach out to people and share with them the power of holistic health.
