My Story

Hi there! I’m Dr. Renata Taravski, Naturopathic Doctor, Life & Wellness Coach, Gut Guru, Yoga Junkie, & Chocoholic.  I’m happy you’re here and honoured to share my story on how I got to where I am today….

First things first.

I didn’t come out of my mother’s womb doing the downward dog and eating organic granola.

For real. 

Before I discovered the world of natural medicine, personal development and yoga, I struggled with severe IBS and hormonal imbalances(PMS, irregular cycles, and seizures).

From the outside I looked normal, like I had my “sh**” together.

But the reality was I was STRESSED, never felt good enough, constantly worried about everything, always had some dissatisfaction with my body, and cycled between feeling anxious and depressed.

It wasn’t until my early twenties when I experienced my life-changing I’m “sick and tired of feeling this way” epiphany. I had a really bad flare-up of IBS and my mood was at an all time low. I did’t recognize myself anymore. Not just physically but mentally and emotionally. I just couldn’t bear one more moment feeling and looking the way I did.

In my heart I knew I was meant to do something bigger with my life and this wasn’t the so called “hand of cards” I was going to settle for. During that breakthrough moment I made a life-long commitment to myself that I was going to:

  • Feel comfortbale in my skin
  • Embrace and accept who I was
  • Choose health and happiness over comfort and fear
  • Live a life that I really wanted for myself ( not what Tom, Dick, and Harry had in mind a.k.a everyone else)

No. Matter. What. It. Took. I figured what’s the worst thing that could happen at this point. I get what I want?

After taking on Naturopathic Medicine, Life Coaching, and Yoga I discovered that a lifestyle upgrade – both inside and out that was true to my soul(I know it just got real deep), was the way I was going to get the health, happiness, and fulfillment I was searching for.

And it was truly a life changing experience.

My health problems resolved, and I feel and look better than I’ve ever have in my entire life. But most importantly, I’m happy with who I am(quirks and all), I let go of who I’m “suppose to be,” and living a life that I’m actually  excited about.

After everything I discovered( and will continue to discover), I’m here to share what I learned with others who are suffering from gut issues, low energy, and any body dissatisfaction; while feeling mediocre(at best), struggling with “I’m not good enough” syndrome, letting fear run the show, and feeling stuck, frustrated and unsatisfied with their health and life.

I believe that everyone(yes I’m talking to you) deserves to have a kick-ass life, feel and look amazing, and own their awesomeness. Even when things aren’t bunnies and rainbows, to have the resilience and ability to handle whatever life decides to toss our way. And I’ve committed my life to helping people get just that.

After all, life isn’t always “kumbaya,” but full of all sorts of colourful adventures that help us grow and allow us to learn more about who we are.
