Meet Katie Duda of The Real Raw You

Today we’d like to introduce you to Katie Duda.

Hi Katie, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
My passion for helping women heal their digestive and hormonal imbalances stems from my own personal struggle for the majority of my life. For over 10 years, I dealt with chronic bloating, constipation, anxiety, fatigue, skin issues and irregular periods. No matter how clean my diet was, I couldn’t shake experiencing these debilitating symptoms. After being told by countless different doctors that nothing was wrong with me, I took measures into my own hands and went back to nutrition school to help heal myself. I was exposed to this idea that health is so much more than what you put on your plate. Health is emotional, spiritual, financial, mental and (of course) physical. You can have the perfect diet, but if you neglect your mental health, are unhappy in your career, or refuse to give your body rest, you will never be able to heal + experience a life full of vitality. My focus and approach with clients is anti-diet, science-backed. We work to address the root cause of your issues– which almost always stem from an imbalanced gut.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
If an entrepreneur tells you it has been a smooth road, they either a: are lying, or b: haven’t yet started! I worked in tech for 8 years prior to making the leap, so to say the transition was a big one is an understatement. I dealt with (and still do!) imposter syndrome, isolation and a true fear of being able to be successful. Being your own boss is a challenge especially if you come from a traditional 9-5 and you now have to kick your own butt + look at your business objectively and not emotionally. This can be especially challenging when you are extremely passionate about what you do. Hiring a business coach to help hold you accountable is something I highly recommend. Additionally, joining a membership/community with other like-minded entrepreneurs where you can share your struggles, successes + strategies is a game changer!

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about The Real Raw You?
I’m a Holistic Integrative Health Coach, working with women to help heal their digestive + hormonal imbalances. I take a mind-body approach and do not believe in fad diets or a one-size fits all when it comes to nutrition. There is quite a bit of noise in the wellness space today, and I sift through that noise for my clients with a digestible, science-backed approach. The majority of women who come to see me have “tried it all” and quite frankly, have a really great diet + exercise frequently, yet they are experiencing bloating, weight gain (around the belly), bowel issues, anxiety & irregular or absent periods. What makes me unique and different is that we work on the non-food factors in your life that are contributing/causing these debilitating symptoms. Stress, both perceived and physical is the biggest area most clients are struggling with.

I offer an online digital health coaching course as well as 1:1 private coaching. You can learn more on my website under Health Coaching. I also have a podcast, The Real Raw You, where I publish a new episode weekly.

So maybe we end on discussing what matters most to you and why?
Empowering women to believe that their bodies are capable of healing given half of a chance. Given the right tools + support system, I’ve seen complete miracles happen. I want every woman to know and believe that it is possible for them, too.
