"Your body has the amazing ability to naturally realign and heal itself, if you’d just give it some basic attention!" ~ Diane McLaren


Diane did not initially plan to be a practitioner or own wellness centres ... over 30 years ago she was well on her way to realizing a professional career in music (Piano).

But in 1982 while attending McGill University in Montreal, Diane was hospitalized by a massive paralysis which was eventually diagnosed as Multiple Sclerosis followed by Fibromyalgia, then Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and more. Thus began a difficult 10-year journey.

By 1992 Diane McLaren had identified effective, natural solutions to address her own chronic conditions that had proven to be (and remain) long-lasting. It marked a turning point in her quality of life and ignited a passion and a mission to let others know, there are viable natural options!

Vision, Courage, Passion: A service to others

In practice since 1994, Diane expanded her services via her wellness centres in Mississauga and Oakville where she and her personally trained and skilled team welcomed clients.

Diane developed a unique, comprehensive methodology that has enabled her and her team of Natural Health Practitioners to help people of all ages.  People who had given up finding solutions to their problems, found renewed hope, and a path to wellness. 

The consolidation of Diane's education in nutrition, iridology, herbology, reflexology, related natural therapies, personal experiences allowed her to formalize a systematic approach focused on root-causes analysis and methodology that promotes healing leading to long-term wellness.

Today Diane continues to help others avoid what she had to endure; the feeling of helpless, the emotional confusion, self-doubt,  anguish, pain, recurring symptoms, limitations, the pharmaceutical failures and experimentation.  Thousands of clients have enjoyed substantial and lasting results.

Diane now leads a very active, healthy lifestyle and enjoys excellent symptom free health as she continues to motivate and inspire wellness in others.
