Cordelia McFadyen’s lifelong battle with chronic health issues changed swiftly in outlook when a doctor suggested she eliminate a few potentially problematic foods from her diet. The previous 20 years, marred by dozens of courses of antibiotics, copious medical testing, and even surgery, had offered little to be optimistic about, but with the elimination of gluten and dairy, hope finally started to appear.
Cordelia is the Dean of the School of Holistic Nutrition at Pacific Rim College, where she overseas Canada’s, and possibly North America’s, most comprehensive program of holistic nutrition. Two decades after her trial elimination of gluten and dairy, she has settled into a comfortable rhythm of attuning to her body’s nutritional needs and teaching others to do the same. Now in her forties, she feels better than ever and is a sought-after educator and practitioner of nutrition.
Cordelia holds nothing back in sharing her health journey during this episode. As debilitating as her physical issues were, arguably the psychological challenges were as equally damaging. After years of the allopathic medical institution not validating her health concerns, she eventually stopped talking about it, leading to deep emotional scars, a lack of self confidence, and an unhealthy body image. Simply picking an outfit became a daunting chore that required foresight into what foods she might eat that day.
Through Pacific Rim College and her company, Inspired Living Nutrition, Cordelia is helping others navigate their nutritional needs and empowering people to discover health and vitality. Her journey has not been easy, but she would not have it any other way. She is one gutsy goddess on her path to serve up a hearty dose of wellness.
