Welcome to Purple Almond Wellness

I’m Tamara Hoerner, MHNE, RNCP, founder of Purple Almond Wellness. I work with middle-age individuals to help with insomnia, support brain health and develop whole body wellness, in order to improve the quality of their mid-life years. Heart and Alzheimer’s diseases run in my family and I struggled with weight loss, so I strive to help others with similar conditions. Using only nutrition, I rid my body of seasonal allergies, Psoriatic Arthritis  and migraines. I know what it takes to use food as medicine, especially in middle age. As a wellness educator and Summa Cum Laude graduate of Hawthorn University, I develop personalized nutrition plans and wellness education sessions, to help clients.

“Let food be thy medicine


medicine be thy food.”

~ Hippocrates

Fuch’s Corneal Dystrophy

Two different eye doctors both diagnosed me with Fuch’s Corneal Dystrophy. They explained that instead of being smooth, as it should be, my cornea looks like the surface of an orange peel. This isn’t something that can be corrected, at least not now.

6 Dimensions of Wellness

What is health? What is wellness? What comes to mind when you think of a healthy person? Most people think of physical health, but there is much more to it than just physical health. Yes, physical health is part of the equation, but other aspects of our lives affect our physical health: stress, toxins, the environment, our social circle, spirituality.

How I cured my insomnia

Things were getting out of control. Either I would only sleep an hour or two, or I fell asleep at 4 o’clock AM, and slept until noon. My internal clock was completely off, probably from the all-nighters I pulled for my classes. It was similar to jet lag, when your body is set to a different time zone.
