Like many folks in the holistic health field, Terri’s journey started with a mission to improve her own health. In her 20’s after suffering from eczema and acne for many years, she began experiencing fatigue and digestive issues. While discussing her gradually elevating lethargic state, a friend recommended she see a naturopath. During a visit she was given a food allergy test. Within a month of getting her results and avoiding certain foods – one of the major ones being gluten – her energy levels increased, digestion improved and eczema started to disappear. This was a time before gluten free diets were widely discussed, so the only real option she had was to get creative with her own meal preparation.
Years later, you could find her whipping up homemade veggie-seed breads, dairy free cheeses, fizzy water kefir drinks and sharing her creations with friends and family. You would certainly hear the enthusiasm while she talks about the ingredients which is contagious the moment the food hits your palate.
All of this has spawned a natural progression into enrolling at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition where she maintains a top honour roll GPA. Her studies have enhanced her life in many ways, including dramatically improving her own adult cystic acne, developing the Nerdy Bird Naturals line of body care products, and has lead to her latest project, co-creator/owner of Euphoria Natural Health. Terri is very passionate about helping others with their own personal journey to elevated health through nutrition and personal care, and is very excited to share this passion with the community of Squamish and beyond.
