Nadia’s remarkable life experience through travel, education both formal and from traditional elders, has allowed her to provide a unique and diverse perspective to our Gabriel Method community.
You can connect with Nadia as a Nutrition Specialist in our Ultimate Coaching Experience and as a Mentor Coach in our Total Transformation Coaching Experience.
In our GM Support Group, Nadia contributes each month with her “Ask Nadia” show, and is also the co-creator with Jon of our highly effective Gabriel Method Detox Program (which we hold bi-annually).
Originally from Canada, Nadia now lives in the USA with her husband.
My name is Nadia Harper.
My passion for living naturally started when I was quite young. As a young girl, I became aware of when certain things (foods, people, places, situations, etc.) felt nourishing or toxic. I made the connection of how much better and healthier I felt when I avoided what felt toxic and aligned with the nourishing.
This started a lifelong journey of exploring the natural workings of the body and how to navigate through this world in a healthy, balanced and joyful manner.
Travel (and especially travelling alone to completely foreign lands) is one of the best educations one can give themselves in my opinion. In retrospect, I can say wholeheartedly that leaving my home country of Canada as a young single adult, donning my backpack and with a one way ticket landing in Asia and travelling and living there for 15 years was, by far, one of the best decisions I have made in my life.
My exploration into living a natural healthy life was deepened exponentially by communing with people living so very differently than how I had grown up. I learned from village elders in rural communities, I learned from cultures that are still very connected to the Earth and to ancient natural ways to nourish and heal.
I have gathered certifications and formal trainings (Psychology, Natural Hygiene, Holistic Nutrition, Raw Food, Yoga, Reiki, EFT (tapping), Meditation, Sun gazing, etc.) but I can honestly say that what I learned outside of the classroom while travelling in foreign countries and living amongst elders, connected communities, ancient cultures and in Nature far outweighs what I learned from textbooks. It is all of this combined that has helped me to help others in my jobs as a health advisor at a cleansing detox retreat and as a holistic coach.
To this day, I still look towards our elders, ancestors and Nature for the keys to health, to nourishment, to preventative care and for simple day-to-day living. Bringing, often long forgotten, ancient wisdom into our modern day helps to bring harmony, health, joy and balance to our modern life.
Much of health is ‘unlearning’ … releasing yourself from the unhealthy habits/thought patterns stemming from modern conveniences, multi-million dollar marketing campaigns, quick fix band-aid approaches to health, ultra violent and overly dramatic programming, etc. Much of this is about raising your awareness and questioning things that you may have been doing blindly for decades.
This unlearning, this raising of awareness is my passion. Reaching my own potential and helping others to do the same is my life’s work.

It is my absolute honour to be available to assist you on your journey towards better health.

Nadia, you are such an inspiration. I love seeing how you do things and I admire so much that you live exactly the type of life you are teaching. Truly inspirational. You have helped me change my entire existence and I cannot ever thank you enough. My heart is filled with love and gratitude.
Another great session with Nadia. I feel that she really gets what is going on with me and gives great advice.
Nadia, I thank you for all you have done for me in this detox. I mean it, your participation and expertise during this time was gentle, loving and extremely supportive. My first day was pretty rough and I would have quit it if it weren’t for your support. I thank you, you are great. Keep up the good work and I’ll be spending time on your website!
Warmly, Karoline – USA
