Business owner Diana Wierzchos of Sarasota, California said she is passionate about natural remedies, holistic health practices and the beautiful city of Destin.

“Everybody now is becoming more aware of natural supplements as opposed to medication and use them as a preventative measure as well as treatments,” Wierzchos said, when asked the reason for opening her new business. “I wanted to be convenient for the local demographic who are healthy minded and interested in natural living.”

As for choosing Destin as her location, Wierzchos said she first visited Destin 10 years ago with her family, and was determined to make it her home some day.

“My family just happened to make a stop here, and I think it’s just one of the best kept secrets,” she said. “I’ve always wanted to move here, I love it here.”

Although still developing her inventory at Destin Nutrition & Wellness, Wierzchos said she carries all natural supplements, multi-vitamins, herbs, cosmetics, and pet products.

“Everything that I am carrying are top brands and all natural, organic items,” Wierzchos said. “What’s different about me is that I’m focused on the raw, organic components of supplements with all natural, non-GMO ingredients.”

Some of the featured brands in the store include Greens Plus and Perfect Food bars, plant-based Pure Green and Garden of Life protein powders and Vana Life Foods and Banza vegan food options.

“I’m really excited because everything I carry, I believe in myself,” Wierzchos said. “I carry vegan foods and items that are soy free, gluten free and non-GMO; something new but natural; something I would take.”

In the coming months, Wierzchos said she hopes to add customized products per customer request and personalized weight-loss services.

“I will work with the clients on special orders and really hope to customize the store based on their needs,” she said. “I will also be offering weight-loss consultations by appointment using a body composition analysis which measures muscle mass, water weight and body fat percentage.”

Besides diet and nutrition, Wierzchos said fitness and relaxation are also important parts of holistic and natural wellness.

“My favorite part of the day is relaxing and finding equilibrium by being out in the ocean,” she said. A few times a week I go out in the morning to soak up the natural minerals in the water, it’s just a nice way to start my day.”
