Laura is the owner of Root & Restore and is dedicated to helping people to get healthy. 

Laura's struggle with depression, anxiety, PCOS, and hormone disruption left her searching for answers.

Abigail Arculeo- Practitioner

Abigail Arculeo, M.S.A.C.N. is the co-owner of Root and Restore, taking care of humans and animals. Trying to resolve her own health issues put her onto the path of nutrition, and she saw so much success that she never looked back!

Abbi holds two undergraduate degrees in Equine Science and Business Management. During her earlier studies, she learned she was passionate about supporting the most natural way to raise animals. With her own health challenges at the time, she learned that the first step in raising animals was to make sure the owner is healthy first. While improving her health, she completed her Masters in Applied Clinical Nutrition, and is in the process of earning her Doctorate as well.


Making natural personal care items for people, preservative free treats or even raw food diets for pets is a passion turned business of hers. Check out her amazing homemade creations at Raw Powered Products!
