As a renowned speaker, author, consultant, clairvoyant and healer, her passionate purpose is to guide others to achieve their personal optimum health through live and video tutorial education. It’s easier than ever to enjoy a balanced & healthy lifestyle that’s also harmonious with the Earth.
As The Healthy Top Chef, Anna has developed her Naturalista Nutrition brand of healing recipes for improving everyday wellness and specific conditions. In May of 2012, she competed in the Celebrity Tastefest Challenge and not only took “Best” in three categories, but won Top Chef overall.
For our families, community, and workplace Anna has developed over ten years of content to share on NaturalistaTV; an online multi-media free membership channel of natural lifestyle “EduTainment”. NaturalistaTV offers a subscription membership that includes shopping guides, several e-books, fun recipe classes, quick tip of the day videos, plus in depth webinars that teach how to make our homes toxin free, prepare healthy recipes, and keep our families and pets in thriving health…all while saving money and the Planet.
Anna Naturalista’s dedicated work is fueled by her own life experiences ranging from a holistic, vegetarian upbringing to naturally healing herself from life-threatening accidents and traumas. For six years she walked with a cane, was wrapped in back braces, and living in chronic pain from a series of injuries that; according to western medicine, should have permanently disabled her. Yet today, she is a medical miracle and inspiration to others! The revival and healing is thanks to learning and embracing holistic healing modalities, her positive “Happy Bubble” attitude, and an actively conscious lifestyle. You can now read about “The Happy Bubble” story in her recently released, co-authored book, Defining Moments of Courage; with Jack Canfield and Sharon Lechter. The day the book was released it hit Amazon’s #1 Best Seller List!
As Vice President of Lean & Green Kids, a local 501(c)3, their work with public school lunch programs is helping to improve the quality of food our children eat in order to give them a head start to living a healthy and vibrant life. She is Co-Founder of SheaTouch, a skin care line using pure natural ingredients, which now sells in three countries, in several stores nationwide and online. In 2011, Anna Co-Founded “Body, Mind and Soil” with Shawn Studer, PhD., who specializes in a garden hose water filter and creating sustainable landscapes.
1. What motivates you?
Teaching naturally healthy living means that I get to witness miracles in the making every day, knowing that everyone has the opportunity to regenerate their bodies, reprogram their minds, and empower their spirit. When my students share a healing story of their own, it inspires me to wake up every day. So in essence, You are my motivation!
2. Describe a difficult situation you were in and how you overcame it?
At the core of it all, I am living proof that miracles do happen, especially with a positive “Happy Bubble” attitude and applied effort!
Without going into sad stories of “what happened”, here are some of the health challenges I decided to heal and thrive from: fractured vertebrae, bi-lateral herniated discs, Fibromyalgia, double hernia, walking pneumonia, migraines, Endometriosis, hormonal depression, insomnia, parasite infection, broken ribs, and even an anaphylactic allergy to dairy…which gave me the gift of a near-death experience.
By applying healing techniques such as meditation, and every natural health remedy I could find; I was determined to heal my body 110%, plus increase my mental strength and awareness beyond current comprehension and also heighten my spiritual consciousness unilaterally. Now, I’m proud to be a medical miracle who’s mission in life is to inspire and teach others.
3. What are your goals for the future?
To improve the health and well-being of 10 million people in 2 years through naturally healthy lifestyle edutainment!
In addition to the online membership subscription released this year, we also offer a Conscious Corporate Wellness Program and will soon have the Naturalista App, so that more people can enjoy getting healthy is less time.
I look forward to NaturalistaTV becoming a national or global show, complete with cooking and recipe demos, organic gardening, healthy home tips, product reviews, natural farm tours, and what I call “Happy Bubble” consciousness; daily habits that create a strong, harmonious mind and a joyful, positive spirit.
4. What’s your favorite snack?
When its warm out and I need a power boost, I almost always turn to a fruit smoothie! Frozen Mango and bananas with pineapple juice and aloe vera gel is my base. Then I whip it up with Hemp protein, L-glutamine, red Maca, and of course a scoop of pHresh Greens.
Otherwise, I reach for an avocado – slice it in half, sprinkle a little sea salt on it and either eat it right out of it’s shell with a spoon or spread it over a slice of sprouted grain toast. Yum & done!
5. What is your favorite quote?
Every human being is the author of his own health or disease.
Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.
– Albert Einstein
