 Natural Well Nest

Hi! I’m Josefa Ciccarelli. I created Natural Well Nest as a way for me to document and share about all of the things that I’m passionate about and that help our family live a happier, healthier lifestyle. I truly believe in the mind, body, soul connection. There are 6 tips that I strive to live by… I’m not perfect, so there is always room for grace. 😁 My hope is that I can always continue learning and growing and sharing my experiences along the way.

I share a lot about  Holistic HealthReal food, my Favorite Things, our family’s Adventures (aka travel + fun) and living a Simple balanced life.

In January 2017 we sold most of our belongings to “go tiny” and  bought a 22ft Airstream Safari travel trailer to live full time in with our family of 4. I look forward to sharing our family adventures here. I also share our daily adventures on Instagram.

November 2013: I had an amazing all natural Homebirth with baby boy Gianni! Read his birth story here!

Baby Gianni

And my life has changed ever since!! After my first son Nico was born I gave up dairy in my diet while nursing because he was a super fussy baby and seemed to be bothered by SOMETHING! A huge light bulb went off. Why was my baby affected by me eating dairy? I began studying about food vigorously. I needed answers to questions like, Where does my food come from? What exactly am I putting in my body and how does it affect me and my baby? I went on an elimination diet to find out what the culprit was and eliminated all processed foods, sugar and all the top allergens. From there I realized some of the food I was eating wasn’t the best for my body as well, and that there were other areas of my life I could improve upon. I was ready for a change –so I took a huge leap of faith and detoxed my entire life.

Out with the old and in with the new! So I began this blog to share my experiences and passions for living a happier, healthier lifestyle. I  also began studying at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I was taught a holistic approach to health and wellness. During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts.  My hope is that I can always continue learning and growing and share my experiences along the way.
