Taylor Norris

Taylor is a Family Nurse Practitioner with over 6 years of experience as a registered nurse in the ICU and the ER. She has worked in healthcare since 2012 with passion, patience, and commitment to those she serves. After seeing a strong need for health education and disease prevention for patients in the hospital setting, Taylor was drawn to go back to school to get certified as a nurse practitioner in family practice. Becoming a mother changed the way she viewed nutrition, overall health, and everyday products, which developed into her mission of supporting cellular health and whole body wellness. Taylor has a strong desire to support, educate, and empower her hometown community on the benefits of cellular-based health.

1 Corinthians 10:31

After my first Meyer cocktail I couldn’t believe the amount of energy I had!  I was waking up early and kept my energy all day. I’ve always preferred the more holistic approach when possible so I was very excited to see a place like this local to me.


I have had so many benefits from the red light therapy.  I have far less inflammation in my body. I have hyperpigmentation in my face and broken capillaries which are fading as well as scars from old small burns on my hands.  My sleep has improved, I don’t wake up in the night, but sleep right through.  I can’t say enough good things about the valuable services they offer.
