Want to learn how I used plants to finally beat my IBS, candida overgrowth and all the crappy symptoms that come with it ?


I’m Stormy Ray


I’m the creator of New Norm Co. and a previous IBS and Candida sufferer!

I believe that eating plant-based has the power to change your entire health – just like it did for me.

On here you will find information, tips and motivation to make eating plants your new norm!

On this site, I’ll teach you healthy new food norms, we’ll dive into your questions like: will this help my IBS? what about candida? I thought meat was good for you? should I eat fruit? what about protein? ……

I’m going to help you cut through the confusion by sharing my experience and what I’ve learned along the way so you can start eating plants and feeling your absolute best.



On my podcast I interview people from all walks of life to learn all about their experience becoming and being plant-based.

Their stories are so inspiring and so different from each other!
