IF YOU HAVE A MESSAGE YOU BELIEVE IN,
IT IS YOUR SACRED DUTY TO SHARE IT WITH THE WORLD.

 

My message is simple.

I believe it is every persons birth right to live a life feeling totally alive, vibrant and incredibly healthy… because in the end you can’t enjoy your life to its full extent if you aren’t feeling your best.

 

About Me Olivia Budgen Blog

A little background…

Party girl, addicted to sugar, binge eater and living in fear with no direction or goals are a few ways I’d describe the person I used to be, alongside living with a whole host of other health issues (which you can read about below). After becoming chronically ill my parents took me from specialist to specialist, but no one was able to help me. Eventually I decided to take responsibility for my health and my life. After endless hours of research I discovered that our bodies have an innate healing ability and if we provide them with what they need they have the potential to heal from almost anything. So that’s exactly what I did. I tuned in and listened to the deep calling of my body and healed by incorporating a low-fat raw vegan lifestyle, fasting, meditation and many other tools and techniques along the way to help speed up the process.

 

WHEN YOUR PURPOSE MEETS YOUR PASSION,
MAGIC STARTS TO HAPPEN.

 

With my new found passion for wellness I made the (best) decision to enrol at THE INSTITUTE OF INTEGRATIVE NUTRITION where I learnt to create health in all areas of my life. I discovered you can’t skip or ignore a facet in your life if you want to create optimal health. So I started surrounding myself with positive, motivated and like-minded people; I consistently exercised in a way that I enjoyed and that suited my body; I continued nourishing my cells with organic, raw vegan food; I’ve combined my passion for health with entrepreneurship to create a fulfilling business in helping inspire others to take control of their health. It has lit a fire inside of me that is continually burning with the desire to empower others to become the best version of themselves.

 

FOOD DOESN’T JUST FUEL YOUR BODY, IT LITERALLY BECOMES YOUR BODY.

 

I want people to get a revelation that what you eat effects every single part of your life. I want that revelation to then empower people to take control of their health, realising that those changes are going to be key in keeping you on track and living your life’s purpose. What you eat effects how you show up every day and helps you unlock your full potential.

Lets get personal… click to read the more juicy details of my story…
When I think of the girl I used to be, I can barely recognise her. It has only been 4 years, but it seems like a lifetime ago! It began after high school. My passion was playing the piano and violin and I was sure that’s what I wanted to turn in to a career. After accessing what it would take to make a living out of it, I realised I wasn’t devoted to doing the amount of work necessary, and quit. I was left feeling lost, uninspired and very confused. Trying to search my heart for other interests, I finally decided to get my Diploma of Beauty Therapy. Along the way I made a decision that went against what my heart was telling me to do and began a relationship with someone which turned out to be extremely toxic. I was introduced to the party lifestyle, and although it only lasted a year and a half, I fit in more alcohol, drugs and junk food than the average person would in their lifetime! I was losing all sense of control, so in order to feel like I was getting some back, I took control over what I put in my mouth and severely restricted my calories during the week and binged on the weekends. I was working towards achieving the ‘perfect body’.

When I look back I realise that I didn’t know my place in the world, I had no goals, dreams, or self-worth, so I focused all my intention on living for this relationship and doing everything I could to make this other person happy. Needless to say I completely lost my self identity, but I also ended up losing my health. I had chronic constipation (think moving your bowels once every 2 weeks…) bloating, flatulence, extreme weight loss, chronic fatigue, brain fog, hormonal imbalances, candida overgrowth throughout my entire body, an eating disorder, adrenal fatigue and depression. Geez, I feel exhausted just typing that!

This part of my life was clearly a down cycle, but I wouldn’t change anything because it encouraged me to begin an inward journey. I have learnt to nourish my body with raw plant foods and feel better and better each and every day. This is a never ending self-love journey I am so grateful for. Not only have I have learnt to nourish my body with whole foods and I don’t experience any of my previous health issues, but I have a new found confidence in knowing who I am and exactly what different I am here to make in this world.
