Deirdre Rawlings, PhD, ND, MH, CNC

Hi, I’m Deirdre Rawlings, a naturopathic doctor, holistic nutritionist, sports nutritionist, master herbalist, plant-based chef, wellness coach, yoga Nidra instructor, and best-selling author of 6 books on nutrition, health, and cooking.


For the last 20+ years my passion has been teaching and helping people how to create radiant health, heal and reverse chronic disease, have a lean, fit body, endless energy, soaring confidence, and transform into their personal best.

Along the way of the healing journey, the people I’ve worked with and helped have discovered true inner peace, love, joy, happiness, success, and bliss in all areas of their lives.

And nothing would give me greater pleasure than to help you attain this too!

I offer high level one-on-one coaching, small group coaching, cooking classes, speaking, VIP Transformation Day & Weekend packages, as well as books and other products designed to help you achieve maximum success in the areas of creating the life most important to you.



I believe that optimum healing occurs within layers of the body, mind, and spirit, and when we engage the natural rhythms of our inner workings through wholesome, unadulterated foods, herbs, and vibration-raising activities and choices, we attain wholeness.

Illness and disease are caused from imbalances brought on by toxicity and deficiencies within the body through food, and from thoughts and past trauma. To heal and attain wholeness we need to address all of these factors and cleanse ourselves of past accumulations, and restore healthy balance within the body.

As we improve our physical and cellular health by providing the body with all the essential nutrients that run the human organism, we naturally find that symptoms dissipate and we no longer have attention on body problems or issues. This frees us and allows us to focus on creative pursuits, raises our confidence and our energy levels, so that we can follow our passions and dreams, and reach our highest potential.

By using healing plant-based foods, herbs, and nutrition as our number one form of medicine, we raise our consciousness and our natural bio-rhythmic vibrations become synchronized, and this naturally also improves our thoughts, moods, emotions, and energy levels. A wonderful side benefit is how this influences and improves our relationship to ourselves, others, and to the world we live and create in. Our personal confidence expands and we become our most magnificent, wise, and loving selves!


Being a naturopath and nutritionist means being a teacher and educator. I show my clients how to properly nourish themselves, including how to prepare healthy food and live a life that restores and supports their optimum wellness, radiance, and truest self. Healing is an ongoing process and an adventurous journey through life that we all are engaged in from beginning to end. There is always something to heal, be it emotional, physical, or spiritual, and the good news is that there is always room for improvement.


My journey into healing and naturopathic medicine began when I started practicing nutrition in order to heal myself of kidney and adrenal fatigue, hypoglycemia, and rheumatoid arthritis [at age 15]. I was chronically tired, rundown, had difficulty maintaining focus, had stiff knee joints, and I wasn’t sleeping well. Once I started eating a primarily plant-based diet and started to live within the laws of nature, my body became strong and my mind became clearer. I began to value and truly understand how food and proper lifestyle can heal the body, mind, emotions, and the spirit.

Since applying these same principles to myself that I teach others these things have happened:

  • My fatigue disappeared and my energy soared
  • My terrible digestive system functioned perfectly
  • My blood sugar metabolism has become efficient
  • Sleep became deeper and more restorative
  • My skin is now clear, glowing, and radiant [blotches have completely disappeared]
  • My hair has become more lustrous and shiny
  • Aches and pains in my joints have disappeared
  • My hormones are balanced and restored
  • I lost inches in my clothing size and my body found its ideal weight without any special dieting
  • My moods improved, and I feel joyful and happy for no reason
  • Greater confidence, clarity, and direction
  • I uncovered hidden emotional blocks and traumas that were holding me back
  • My intuition is honed and I trust it

I am dedicated to inspiring, empowering and helping you reach your peak potential to become your most powerful, confident, and healthiest self.


For me, education is a life-long journey of expansion and self-transformation, not only through academics, but also through self-learning, self-development, and life experiences. I’ve been very blessed to have many opportunities in my life to travel around the world, and to learn from a variety of leaders in health, nutrition, cooking, yoga, fitness, spirituality, and energy medicine. I’m also an avid reader and love to spend time reading about health, nutrition, cooking, spirituality, trans-personal psychology, and neuro-science.

Sharing what I learn and helping others is not only a passion but also a healing and growth experience as it allows me to connect with the mind, body, and spirit in this ongoing quest for becoming whole.
