Recovering from overwhelming personal circumstances can be cripplingly difficult, meaning life, health, and career ambitions seem entirely worthless.
However, it’s vital to remember that there is always another day tomorrow, and by focussing on clean health and clear goals you can pull yourself through even the most harrowing of times.
That’s what Swedish supermodel Camilla Hansson did in 2012 when a series of personal heartbreaks smashed her world into pieces. After a period of introspection, she came back stronger, and today runs a successful business, as well as models around the world, AND retrained as a Naturopath.
We found out how she did it.

What’s your story:
I am a nutritionist, model and former Miss Sweden.
I grew up in Stockholm, but I am now based in London – my favourite city in the world – although, I travel a lot with modeling.
My biggest passion in life is holistic health and I am training to be qualified as a Naturopath, and I can’t wait to share this amazing way of life with the world.

What is the toughest adversity you’ve faced on your journey to living your best life, and how did you overcome it?
For me it was in 2012 when a series of events happened to me at the same time.
My father passed away, which had a huge impact on me, my boyfriend at the time and I broke up, and I was trying to set up a business. However, because of the above events I couldn’t get myself together to make a success of it.
But it’s true what they say – time heals most things and for me it was having a spiritual practice that got me out of the darkness. The comfort of turning to something bigger than myself was a huge help for me. Today I do feel I’m living my best life with much more clarity on who I am and what I want in life.
What’s your goal for your next chapter?
I want to focus my efforts on working in the holistic health field. As a nutritionist and soon to be qualified Naturopath this is something I’m really passionate about.
I’m looking to get into different businesses in this field and to keep expanding my knowledge. My own health and beauty blog is coming as well so stay tuned!
