The Native Path: Dr. Chad Walding
“The NativePath is a journey; it's an invitation to go down a journey to reclaim your health and remember who you really are. As a species and an individual, we've forgotten who we are because we've been brought into this world where we've been given a name and a label. We're taught who we are as far as race, political ideology, or religion and we get caught up in those things. We also might get caught up in our diseases and think that's who we are. Eventually, all of this starts to manifest itself as a little voice inside our heads. So at NativePath, we're trying to remove all of that and give people a way out so they can realize that they're the creator of their life.” – Dr. Chad Walding

Find Your NativePath
NativePath is the culmination of over 50+ years of experience in studying human health. We are on a mission to return human health and vitality by changing the way we eat, move, think and live.
From home health care for patients ravaged by degenerative neurological and chronic disease all the way to the coaching of elite athletes, we have seen a clear pattern—how people eat, think and move affects everything.
Immune function, energy levels, mood, body composition, skin, longevity, you name it.
We have seen what many may consider miracles of healing – disease reversed, health and vitality regained, the opportunity to live a fully functional life that we all deserve.
Through this experience, we bring products and services that provide the framework for humans to return to their native health and natural way of being.

Power Quotes From The Show
“We're on a mission to help the individual cultivate happiness, health, and kindness within themselves as well as spread those ideas to their community. We want to let people know that they were brought up in a world with a lot of toxicity – their food, the way they've been moving, and the thoughts they've been thinking have all been inherited but that's not who they are; they're not a victim and we're going to show them a way out. It's almost like we were born into a room with toxic perfume. The more time we spend in that room, the sooner we become desensitized to its toxicity. We're trying to get people out of that room to help them discover who they really are.” – Dr. Chad Walding
“As someone who was working in the conventional healthcare system, I felt like I had no purpose. However, what that experience was doing was just showing me what's actually happening in healthcare and building up a desire to change something about it. That experience was exactly what I needed and it was my purpose even though I didn't know it was my purpose. Back then I didn't understand why I was in that situation but now I do.” – Dr. Chad Walding
“I always try to live in a state of wonder. I literally wake up every day and say, ‘May I be in a state of wonder?' I always wonder about other people and how they're doing, how things might be occurring to them, or even how the universe works. Our curiosity is quite infinite but that's what makes it fun. Isn't learning so much fun when we're in that state of wonder?” – Dr. Chad Walding
