Welcome to Primal Balance! I’m Kendall Kendrick, mom to four girls, voice actor, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, motivational speaker, and host of the weekly show Born Primal: Conversations With the Ancestral Health Community.
In 2010 I found the Paleo diet. This was the final piece of the puzzle for me after a decade of primal style parenting. I learned that we can live healthier and happier lives by adapting principles from our hunter-gatherer ancestors into our 21st century lives. I believe that an ancestral template for nutrition and lifestyle is crucial to opening up the channels for healing past trauma and balancing our modern day existence.
For 16 years I worked as an on-air radio personality, but my heart was always seeking a career that would fulfill me and allow me to share how I’ve overcome many challenges in life. From childhood trauma, addiction, alcoholism, toxic relationships, mental health imbalance, body image issues, disordered eating, sugar addiction, and self-loathing.
In 2012, I decided to embark on a new journey and studied with the Nutritional Therapy Association and created a practice dedicated to helping people live a holistic life that encompasses healthy eating practices, lifestyle, mindfulness, and empowerment. Using the experience from two decades as a radio personality and voice actor, I took my love of public speaking to the next level and started sharing my journey and expertise as a motivational speaker. In my talks, I speak about recovering perfectionism, letting go of control and shame, finding balance, and creating a fulfilled, peaceful life.
In addition to my work in the Ancestral Health community, I spent time working in local food policy where I coordinated school gardens with our school district, another passion of mine. If you’re interested in starting school gardens or learning more about how to teach children about healthy food in your school district, please check out the work I’ve done in that field here.
