Nid, the Founder
I wanted to have products that wouldn’t harm other creatures, that I could trust to keep chemicals away from my family and allow us to preserve our children’s world.
This led to my creation of The Naturalist You, which embodies my passion for nature, my heritage, well-being and care for all creation.
How It All Began…
About 8 years ago, I had a shift in my self-image. I’d just noticed a growing bald spot in my hair. I was confused and surprised, it was totally abnormal. I didn't know why or how. I took my self to the GP and then the Dermatologist. I was given injections in the scalp and surely few days later,hair started growing back.
I knew I had to make a change, but when another bald spot joined the first, it rang alarm bells.
I turned to topical steroids, which did help my hair grow back a bit only to discover another bald spot - front and center. I knew I had to do more digging to get to the root of my problem.
I soon found out that my condition was called ‘alopecia.’ With more time and research, I also became more mindful of my body’s intricate workings, and the effect my lifestyle had on it.
Its an auto- immune disorder, surely applying steroids and taking injections helped but it wasn't the solution. Gut fixing was required along with a monitor on the number of chemicals we were being exposed to on a daily basis.
I realised that I’d have to thoroughly cleanse my being to get back on track. As a child, I had an early introduction to meditation and yoga, thanks to my mum’s love of both.
It was a gift which came back to me as second nature, even as an adult. From there, I journeyed deeper into the practices within my Indian heritage, and the ancient knowledge that fuelled them.
I learned more about how the sustenance we use to fuel our bodies can affect the balance of our gut microbiome. As a family, we became more conscious about the things we consumed, from family meals to cosmetics and cleaners to room sprays.
The revelation about the plethora of harmful chemicals and synthetic additives surrounding us was shocking. We began an effort to eradicate the chemicals and plastics in our home, and used more natural, healthful substitutes instead.
Through this journey, I experienced a renewed commitment to my spirituality and dedicated my time to developing a natural lifestyle. With help from my family and friends, I was able to grow in my journey and philosophy.
I believe strongly in our connection to the earth, and nature itself. My passion for preserving nature through the creation of healthy, sustainable, environmentally friendly lifestyles grew.
The Naturalist You embodies my passion to help people like yourself live the Natural lifestyle.
I hope you enjoy your stay here and that our luxurious range will truly pamper and care for you and enjoy the journey with us.
