ANGELLE BATTEN, CO-FOUNDER
18 years ago Angelle Batten was struggling with sugar addiction, severe PMS and debilitating depression. While she initially chose to use conventional medicine to help herself, she intuitively knew that what she was experiencing would not be healed by taking prescription drugs. She decided to follow her gut and look deeper into why she was feeling such imbalance.
Once Angelle opened up her mind and heart to true healing, she began to learn how to tune into her body and spirit to discover how to live a truly nourished life. Angelle dove into nutrition and holistic health and with the help of many mentors and guides, she’s embraced a holistic approach to health and deeply understands that physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health are woven together and all have to be addressed for true healing.
Angelle draws on her experiences, knowledge and skillful coaching to support women who are ready to create a sweeter life with a lot less sugar. A life they love waking up to each morning and are grateful for each evening.
