Tegan is Author of ‘365 Days of Wholeness’, Holistic Health and Lifestyle Coach, Personal Trainer, Retreat Facilitator, Speaker, Vegan Cook, and more... but really just a girl who wants to make the world a healthier place one person at a time.

Tegan’s inspiration for going plant-based came after suffering from chronic Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) for 22 years and watching her mum suffer from Crohn's Disease.
Living with a digestive disorder made Tegan a lot more conscious of what she was eating from a very young age. Always trying to eat healthy to avoid pain and horrible situations caused Tegan a lot of trauma growing up.
Tegan also battled with depression when she was 17 which she overcame naturally with fitness, self development (mind work) and nutrition.

When Tegan was 19 years old her mother Trina was rushed to emergency surgery after her bowel suddenly perforated. Trina was told that she was very lucky to live and that she would have to be on medication for the rest of her life. On top of that the medications she was taking daily would eventually give her bowel cancer… The doctors told her Crohn’s disease had nothing to do with nutrition, however Tegan and Trina decided to do our own thing anyway. Nearly losing her mother was a massive wake up call and turning point in Tegan’s life. The thought of losing her mum was unbearable!!!

So Tegan and Trina began a journey to find a natural cure. A way to heal the body with nutrition.. The research began in all their spare time.

After researching for a few years, reading books on the alkaline diet like ‘The pH Miracle’, ‘The China Study’ and ‘Skinny Bitch’, in early 2011 Tegan decided to become vegan, which changed her life forever.

Tegan continued formal study, flying overseas to learn the Gerson Therapy and began a course in Holistic Nutrition at The University of Natural Health.

Tegan has now healed from IBS and her mum Trina is healed from Crohn's disease.  She has also helped many others suffering from many different things through her coaching.
Tegan’s mission now is to help as many people as she can through nutrition and running events and retreats all over the world.
