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.
This video shows a man as he reminisces about his life and the things for which he’s thankful. It is a wonderful reminder that giving thanks should happen more than just once a year. It should happen everyday. It’s the little things that are important.

This will be my final post until December 7, 2020. I will be spending quality time with my family during this week of Thanksgiving. Next week, December 2, 2020, I am scheduled to have cataract surgery and will be taking that week off as well. See you all in 2 weeks.
Until next time, God bless and Namaste my friends.
Since I was diagnosed with Fuch’s Corneal Dystrophy, I’ve been researching health and nutrition for the eyes. Fuch’s dystrophy is the death of the cells in the cornea and can lead to blindness. The only known cure is a cornea transplant. The only positive of this whole mess is it’s slow growing. If I ever do need a cornea transplant, it won’t be for 15 to 20 year.. It is my intention, however, to stop this genetic disease in it’s tracks. I have absolutely no desire for a cornea transplant. So I dove headlong into eye research and stumbled across the super health benefits of red palm oil. It’s jam packed with eye healthy nutritients.
I know what some of you may be thinking. Isn’t this oil the stuff that destroys the environment in order to harvest it? Doesn’t it destroy the orangutan habitats? I said the same thing when I first read about red palm oil. In fact, I’ve avoided palm oil for years because I thought it was environmentally destructive. However, there are companies who have found ways to harvest it safely, without destroying the environment or habits. I use Nutiva brand. Here is a quote from their store site:
