About Root + Revel

Welcome to Root + Revel, a holistic wellness site delivering inspiration to help people live a more balanced, mindful, and fulfilled life–without sacrifice!

True wellbeing is about physical health AND mental, emotional and spiritual health. So we’re taking it back to basics and infusing beauty, flavor, simplicity and celebration into everyday moments with fresh and inspiring content (across topics like physical health + fertility, science-based self-care + mindfulness, clean beauty, non-toxic home and living, motherhood, original recipes, and more!)

Root + Revel features content written by founder, Kate Kordsmeier, plus a variety of guest posts from doctors, registered dieticians, and other successful health and wellness professionals and experts.

Founder: Kate Kordsmeier

In October 2015, after being diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), Leaky Gut Syndrome (IBS), and hypothyroidism, and subsequently healing her symptoms naturally, Kate created Root + Revel. After her diagnosis, she was blown away by the rapid transformation she saw in her own body from simple, natural and holistic lifestyle changes. Kate now lives a near symptom-free life and lives in Atlanta with her husband and two kids.

For nearly a decade before creating Root + Revel, Kate was a full-time freelance food and travel writer and recipe developer–you can find her work in over 125 magazines, newspapers and websites, including USA Today, EatingWell, Cooking Light, Travel + Leisure, Shape, FITNESS, Women’s Health, The Washington Post, Clean Eating, Vegetarian Times, Wine Enthusiast, SELF and Real Simple.

Today, you can find Kate over at her personal brand, Kate Kordsmeier, where she helps heart-centered entrepreneurs start and build fulfilling and successful online businesses and blogs (check out my Six-Figure Blog Academy here!).
