Meet Lorraine

Hey there! I'm Lorraine Nichols, the face behind Primally Balanced. I am most passionate about holistic wellness, natural healing, the power of real food, and sustainable living. I created Primally Balanced out of a desire to help others in areas of nutrition, overall wellness, and aid them in becoming the best version of themselves.

Most of my life I have experienced a number of health related issues. Weight gain, unable to lose weight or fluctuation, depression, anxiety, hormonal imbalances, severe unexplained back pain, among other things. Eventually, I decided that enough was enough. I needed answers and not another prescription.

In 2013, I found my mentor and coach Emily Schromm. She completely rocked my world by introducing me to the power of proper nutrition and fitness. I have been a client of hers since and will forever be grateful for the knowledge she has given me. I am now an Embassador for Emily, as well as an EmPack Team Member, and a partner for her Body Awareness Project. You may also see me reference her throughout the site as she was a huge part of sculpting my foundational beliefs in nutrition and fitness.

Aside from the incredible insight I have received over the years from Emily, I am now enrolled in the Nutritional Therapy Practitioner's program at the Nutritional Therapy Association. By November 2018, I will be a nutritional therapy practitioner and will begin accepting clients in January 2019. I also have a Bachelors Degree from the University of Oklahoma and have been employed as an investigator since 2006. With my background in investigations my instinct is to learn the whys and hows of everything. Especially finding the best practices for sustainable living and holistic health. Hundreds of hours of research have gone into my vast knowledge of holistic health and wellness.

My goal is to help you find balance in your life through real food, natural healing, and sustainable living. I believe that cultivating a relationship between client and practitioner is vital. I am here to help guide you to the balanced life that you envision for yourself.
