Portrait of NativePath Co-founder and Doctor of Physical Therapy, Doctor Chad Walding

Long story short...

NativePath is a wellness company (and way of life) founded by Doctor of Physical Therapy, Dr. Chad Walding.

It all started in 2010 when Dr. Chad began paving a path to better health—clearing it of the modern-day roots and rocks and stumbling blocks that get in the way of healthy living (think: sugar, preservatives, artificial foods and sweeteners…).

His love for nutrition quickly evolved into hosting paleo seminars with his wife, building a Facebook Community of over 100,000 people, and curating a line of top-notch supplements—free of all the fake stuff, sourced with integrity, and backed by science.

Why NativePath Supplements?

Let’s be honest, it can be tricky getting all the nutrients you need from food alone. That’s where NativePath comes in.

With top-tier supplements like collagen powder, MCT powder, krill oil, and more, one can give their body what it needs to age gracefully.

Over the past 5 years, we’ve been fortunate enough to get hundreds of thousands of people across the United States on the path. Our 6,000+ five-star reviews speak for themselves…

“Totally satisfied—5 stars. I'm taking less aspirins and the pain is no where near as bad.” —Vanessa H.

“I have been using NativePath Collagen for at least 3 years. Wouldn't start my day without it.” —Ginger C.

“Best collagen on the market! I feel better than I have in years! I not only feel better but I look better too. I am 62 years old but felt like I was 80 for a long time. Now I have more energy, no more stomach issues, my skin looks amazing compared to what it was….. I had crepe skin so bad it was disgusting! It’s almost all gone and I love it. My hair and nails are absolutely amazing. Also I have lost 6 pounds. I love NativePath collagen and can’t wait to try other products.” —Barbara G.

Meet the Founder, Dr. Chad

It all started in a hospital…

Fluorescent lights shone down, doctors and nurses hurried about from patient to patient, and the smell of a Mcdonald’s Big Mac wafted my way.

You see, I actually chose to be in this setting. I spent 6 years studying for it. I was now an official Doctor of Physical Therapy.

But after only three months of being here, the much too-bright artificial lights, the smells of fake food, and the doctors prescribing one too many pills were weighing on my conscience.

Before you begin thinking that I was a total health nut since birth, let me be completely honest: I was the furthest thing from that.

 

Throughout my years of childhood, adolescence, and college, I had my fair share of fast-food benders. I thought Sour Patch Kids were the best invention ever. And I most definitely didn’t give a second thought about drinking sugary coffees by day and beers by night.

 

Let’s just say, “healthy food” was never on my radar.

 

That is until I started listening to this podcast called The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf. I listened to this podcast for hours on end—every single day. I became addicted to learning about health, nutrition, and vitality.

So I began telling my patients about what I was learning...

 

How gluten and dairy are big inflammatory foods. How sugar is a big player in things like high blood pressure, inflammation, and chronic disease. How toxic oils like canola and safflower oil result in inflamed, calcified arteries.

 

And here’s the crazy part: My patients took what I said to heart.

 

They did a complete pantry makeover—throwing out toxic oils, junk foods, breads and pastas, fake Velvita cheese…

 

Replacing them with extra-virgin olive oil, fresh berries, nuts, pasture-raised meats and poultry…

And get this: They started to feel better.

 

They noticed that their pain disappeared. They effortlessly dropped unwanted weight (without even trying!). Their skin was restored back to its youthful glow.

 

The more of these transformations that I witnessed, the more of a believer I became.

 

I felt like I’d finally found my true purpose. My practice was growing. My wife and I even started hosting nutrition seminars, teaching people about the paleo diet. Life was good…

Until one day I received a call…

 

Out of the blue, a nurse called me and bluntly said, “You need to stop telling my patients about nutrition.”

 

I was appalled. Completely thrown off guard. Thinking, “Why does this healthcare professional not want his patients to know about this life-changing information? Why does he want to keep them in the dark—in pain?”

 

That’s when I realized: Conventional healthcare is flawed. Dangerously flawed.

 

And so it began…

 

In addition to the nutrition seminars my wife and I were hosting, I began researching whole-food supplements that would make people feel better. My hope was to provide people with a safe, natural alternative to the half-dozen medications they were prescribed.

 

That’s when I stumbled upon this thing called collagen…

 

And on that day—June 6, 2017—NativePath was born.
