What is your name & location?
My name is Veladya Diana Chapman and I currently live in my van while I travel the US with my partner and cat 😀
How do you help people heal?
I am a Holistic Nutritionist and Yoni Health Practitioner. I help others heal by creating custom healing plans, selling healing herbs/inspirational books and creating inspirational and educational content on my Youtube channel: Earth Mama Medicine.
What type of benefits does your method of healing provide?
Beings who purchase custom healing plans from me receive loads of helpful tips to help them stay strong in their decisions to live plant-based lifestyles. They learn about acidic vs alkaline foods, what harmful ingredients to look for while grocery shopping, herbs and supplements that would benefit them specifically and they receive recipes and guidance for healing specific ailments they are experiencing. I provide tons of info but also a lot of options for them to choose and experiment with themselves. I feel it is very important to provide clients with an outline for healing, instead of a step by step mandatory program, so that they may find what works for them individually.
When did you realize that you wanted to heal people/why did you start?
I began to resonate with plant-based living and natural healing while I was on tour performing in the Broadway musical, The Book of Mormon. I was living the performer life that caused me to always be “busy”, stressed, and fatigued. My skin was breaking out frequently, my hair was dry and brittle and I had excess body fat I was not proud of. I began to research natural remedies for my symptoms and came upon veganism and herbalism and starting watching documentaries and reading books on these subjects. It finally dawned on me that we have everything we need in plants. Shortly after tour, I enrolled in Holistic Nutrition school and began healing myself and then created Earth Mama Medicine.
How does your personal healing journey reflect in how you hold space for others?
My personal healing journey is continuous and on-going. I am always discovering new herbs and better methods for my own self-healing practices. Knowing this, I am able to provide my clients with an open healing plan to allow them to adjust as they need. No dogma here! We are always learning.
Why is what you do so important?
Because our people are DYING from what is supposed to be FOOD. And also misinformation. It’s a shame and it’s mostly happening because we aren’t aware of what is actually good for us and what is just a scam. There isn’t enough TRUTH being spread to the masses about healing. I want to be another voice for change and the uplifting of the human vibration.
What is your inspiration to continue doing what you are doing? What is the fuel that keeps you going?
My clients and “followers”, which I prefer to call, my Earth Mama family. They keep me inspired every single day. I often overwork myself trying to squeeze in as many clients as possible and create too much content at once because I receive SO much feedback that what I’m doing is changing people’s lives. It makes me so excited and often keeps me up at night! Haha! Changing the world starts with one person at a time, and when I change the lives of multiple people in a day it’s like a drug! I just can’t stop!
How does it make you feel when you are helping people heal?
On fire. It gives me purpose.
What does healing mean to you?
Healing means returning to our God-given, natural state of bliss. It means recognizing our divinity and remembering that it is our birth right to feel good. The earth has everything we need. It’s all about remembering.
What are your visions &/or goals?
I envision myself traveling the world while spreading knowledge of healing to as many beings as possible. I have goals for my Youtube channel to grow to millions of subscribers, and for me to have the platform to teach courses online and offer healing retreats partnered with other guides I resonate with. I have sooo many ideas I am currently manifesting.
Tell us a fun fact about what it is that you do or something people may not know about you.
Fun fact: I learned how to edit videos in high school while creating the school news every day and never thought the knowledge would be useful until I started to create educational videos and inspirational vlogs on Youtube. Now I get so many complements on my video editing abilities and artistic style! I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason. We are always building our tool belt for life.
In one sentence, what is your message to the world?
You are worthy of optimum self care.
Is there is anything else that you would like to share about yourself or what it is that you do?
I recently became an author! The book is titled Affirmations for Manifesting Love and it is filled with helpful info on how to attract the most powerful force in our universe in every aspect of life. I was super nervous to publish my first book but it has received amazing feedback and I’d like to share that with as many beings as possible. The book is available on my website www.earthmamedicine.com/affirmationsforlove for only $7.99.
