ABOUT

SAGERFAMILY2016(92of205)Hi, My name is Natalie Sager, the Modern Hippie Mama

And I am bringing Hippie back!

My company, HeWeLoHa is a groovy acronym for Health, Wealth, Love and Happiness.

I am a Mama to my amazingly delicious sons, Jonah, and his baby brother, Skye. I am blessed with an incredibly supportive and talented hubby, sweet doggy and am filled with infinite love and gratitude everyday. They are the light of my life and my constant reminders about how miraculous and wonderful the world can be…when we open our hearts.

My mission is to inspire, educate & empower fellow Hippie Mama’s to take control of their HeWeLoHa. As the main power houses in the home we can then create a ripple effect to our family, friends, community and beyond.

As Martin Luther King so simply put, “I have a dream.” My dream is to reach as many Mama’s across the world so that we can positively shift the mental, physical, and spiritual health for the collective benefit. My dreams are big, my vision is clear, my enthusiasm and determination are contagious.

You deserve a body, mind, and soul makeover that will impact and benefit you for the rest of your life. You have the right to experience life with energy, vitality, smiles and laughter!

There always seems to be time to put everyone else’s needs above your own. But, when we sacrifice ourselves for others, our own HeWeLoHa diminishes. Boost your own well-being, radically improve your health, and feel peaceful with a side of sexy everyday!

It is my goal to be as optimally healthy as I possibly can be so I can watch my family grow throughout the years. And, during that journey I hope to help others find that same light.

My HeWeLoHa Journey Begins
When I realized I could overcome my severe acid re-flux and cure my husbands Crohn’s disease without medication, I began obsessively learning about food, nutrition and it’s affects on our digestive health. This all came about when my son was born and I cut gluten and dairy from my diet in an attempt to soothe my son. I was breastfeeding and noticed a massive improvement in Jonah’s behavior. Giving up my beloved cheese was NOT easy (total understatement!), but I would have done anything to make my son stop crying! And, to boot, my acid re-flux dramatically lessened and hubby’s digestive woes were no moes! We were totally thrilled with our new discovery and wanted to share it with the world. But, first we had to further our research, deepen our understanding to the effects of food and well being and get a formal certification.

 

Fast forward
I am a Certified Holistic Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition which is a year-long program that studies over 150 dietary theories. It is a highly comprehensive program taught by well respected doctors, scientists, nutritionist, dietitians, A-list actors, politicians, authors, and research analysts. Additionally, I have completed over 1500 hours of independent study on diet, exercise, attitude, and lifestyle. I continue to study and educate myself daily keeping abreast of all topics related to health and wellness. Learning is living and I plan to do both for a very long time!

I have worked with clients internationally from Paris to Israel, Switzerland to Canada, New York to DC and down to Florida. Age is just a number as my clients have ranged from children to senior citizens. We are never too young or too old to optimize our life and live our HeWeLoHa.

I am also certified in Pilates Apparatus and Pilates Mat, as a Group Fitness Instructor, a Dance Educator and have my Bachelors in Mass Communication. So, while I find my story much more interesting than my accreditation’s I do feel it’s important that you understand that I have the education and experience as a professional and an expert in the field of Health and Wellness to help you optimize your life.

 

“An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field.”

While, I could and will, tell you what works for me I want to open you up to the possibility that there is a beautifully exquisite reason why you decided to pick up this book. Your journey of exploration may have similarities to mine, but we are all unique and individuals and while our paths may cross in this lifetimes; no two journey’s will ever be the same. Psychologists often refer to their Research as Me search. We are often teachers of something that we need to learn the most. Clearly I need to learn about the intense healing powers available to us in this great Universe/Energetic force.

I want to set you up for success and help guide you along your adventure in self-discovery. Because if you do what works for me and it doesn’t work for you it will be disappointing and you may feel like you failed. We don’t change our minds by data or evidence. Our minds change through experience. This book may not change your mind but if you are suffering, then the Lifestyle Intervention tools I provide will help you overcome whatever issues you may be having.

 

“Be confused, it’s where you begin to learn new things. Be broken, it’s where you begin to heal. Be frustrated, it’s where you start to make more authentic decisions. Be sad, because if we are brave enough we can hear our hearts wisdom through it. Be wherever you are right now. No more hiding. You are worthy, always.”  

~SC Lourie, Writer/Poet

 

My ultimate goal is really about helping to understand the mind body connection, how are psyche and our experiences influence the present, how are family of origin influences our metabolic reality and how to use this personal and bio-individual information in really tangible and practical ways. I want to bring awareness and empowerment to you. Because when we are empowered, educated and inspired we can accomplish anything we want. We can build, create and design our lives to be exactly as we want. I believe in the vitalistic and that healing is multi-faceted. I believe that we are capable of activating the body’s medicine and innate healing powers.

I feel like I have been given a second chance and defied the odds. Therefore it is my responsibility to share what I have learned, to figure out how to fulfill my potential so that I can empower other people to do the same. And, I have spent several years trying to figure that out. And of course, I am still learning. I am always learning. Every time I learn something new I want to share that with the world.

 

I am intrinsically optimistic and always believe that there is a solution to any problem!

hippie at heart
When I was in High School I was majorly into the Performing Arts. Every year, the Musical Theater Department put on an incredible performance called Blast-From-The-Past. Anyone who was anyone in our county was familiar with this spectacular event. There was a collection of songs ranging from the 50’s-90’s (I graduated in 1999). The tech department built impressive sets, we had professional lighting, sound and our theater easily competed with Broadway theaters. It was impressive, to say the least. We had professional choreographers, a live band, and extremely talented students who shared their expertise on the stage. For all four years I was cast as a dancer. A relatively exclusive group who adored the spotlight and what the status of being a “dancer” meant.

During our performances, our costumes reflected the particular era of the correlating song. Whenever we were cast in dances from the 60’s and 70’s I was thrilled to put on my bell bottoms, flat iron my hair, wear flowwy tops and flowers in my hair. It’s funny, even back then it didn’t feel like I was pretending to be someone I wasn’t, or “acting” like a hippie. I felt like the “costume” was yet another way of expressing my connection with peace, love and harmony.

When I was a senior in High School and all my friends were going to Cancun for Spring Break, I went on a girls trip with my mom to San Francisco. We indulged in Musical Theatre performances, visited Alcatraz and one of the coolest parts of the trip for me was the day we went to Haight and Ashbury, the Mecca of Hippiedom. We browsed and shopped and I bought my all time favorite pants in the world- my light pink bell bottoms from a vintage thrift store. I’ll always remember how perfect those pants fit and felt. Those pants were made for my inner teenage hippie.

Modern day hippie culture is all about embracing who you really are, perhaps that means being a non-conformist, choosing nature more than man-made, acceptance over judgment, being Earth-centered, embracing astrological beliefs, and respecting Eastern faiths. Today, I define myself as the Modern Hippie Mama and here are a few examples of why:

  • I live in busy suburbia, yet the inside of my house feels very Zen. I burn incense while setting my daily intention for my home and family. I light candles, diffuse essential oils and open my doors and windows to allow my house to breathe during the day. 
  • I don’t like to turn on lights in the house, but when I do it’s usually a red or orange light. 
  • I believe in food energetics, humanely treating animals, & a predominantly plant-based diet. I am not a vegan. Nor do I judge people who are or are not. 
  • I wear deodorant and makeup. But, everything I put on my body or in my body is green, clean and promotes sustainable practices. 
  • I love to practice Pilates, Yoga, Stretch and Meditation to enhance my mind/body connection. All while sporting fashionable and pricey Lululemon workout gear J. 
  • I wear hippie headbands and flowy dresses because they are cute, comfortable and what I feel most authentic in. 
  • Nearly everything I purchase comes in a glass container. I love recycling the glass and repurposing them for food or drink. I love the way glass looks and feels and most importantly because it is non-toxic! 
  • For vitamin D, we catch some rays at the beach and ground ourselves in the sand. 
  • I don’t make my own wipes or use cloth diapers, but I don’t use synthetics, chemicals or toxins in the wipes and diapers I choose.

 

To Your HeWeLoHa,

Natalie
