Welcome to The Purple Almond Wellness! I’m Tamara Hoerner, MHNE, ROHP/RNCP wellness educator and founder of Purple Almond Wellness. I work with middle-age individuals to help 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, as well as cured my insomnia. 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. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

  1. My dear Purple Almond. Congrats on being tagged and you responded so well. I decided to decline on the awards and tags since January 11, I know only two seeks ago. I have to stick with it and let bloggers who have less than 1000 likes to have more chances to receive award and play tags. I really appreciate you thinking of me!!!!! Wishing you betting lots of recognitions! You deserve it!!

  2. Thanks so much for the tag. Have to confess that I don’t do awards or tags. It’s just too hard for me. We regularly travel remotely and sometimes I don’t see the internet for up to two weeks. So thanks so much for thinking of me, but I have to decline.
