She set off to learn everything she could and soon obtained her MBA. 20 years later, 14 of which she spent running her fitness business, The American Boot Camp Company, she has now come full circle and is surrounded daily with the herbs she once passionately studied and cultivated.

Nelli Biddix, N.D.
Born in India, Nelli Biddix grew up in the mountains near the Himalayas. Spirituality and health have always been her keen focus, even as a child. Nelli was always looking for ways to help people with their health, take away their troubles and put a smile on their faces. She quickly realized that she was not suited for conventional medicine. Instead of masking symptoms with drugs and surgeries Nelli wanted to heal the body by understanding what was out of balance and working on the root cause so the body could heal. Her first professional job was in a health food store, which set her on the path of true healing. She went on to pursue her dream and became a certified Doctor of Naturopathy, a nutritional consultant, master herbalist and a health specialist.
