Hi! I’m Laney Sisun, a Registered Nurse, an AIP Health Coach, and a Crohns Disease Warrior. I also own a Paleo Bakery, called the Honey Palette, that focuses on providing Decadent Desserts for people with food sensitivities, like childhood allergies and autoimmune diseases. All are paleo, sugar-free, sweetened with honey, and some are also SCD and AIP compliant.

As a nurse, I have focused my career on working in Women’s Health and Diabetes. And as a result of having Crohns for over 20 years, I have become passionate in researching alternative diets and therapies in order to improve my own health. Not only do I follow aspects of the AIP diet, but I also follow the SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet), and can help with meal plans and tips combining both! Through exploration of my own health needs, I have seen major improvements with my own struggles with Psoriasis, Crohns Disease, and Lichen Sclerosis.

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Health Education and a Bachelors of Science in Nursing. I have worked as a Diabetes Health Educator, a Cardiac Nurse, and a Labor and Delivery Nurse. I am a huge advocate for patient empowerment, and feel that as patients, we need to have control over our own health. My passions are educating people about diet as it relates to their own health needs, and guiding them towards a more fulfilling life through exploration of alternative treatments and foods. Because EVERY BODY is Different. We all have a different path, and I want to help you gain clarity so you can find your own and thrive!

*Practices virtually worldwide

I’m Andrea Lane, a board certified acupuncturist and herbalist. I practice a gentle, Japanese style of acupuncture that helps to guide the body back to good health. My approach to my patients’ wellness is holistic, involving dietary, exercise, and lifestyle consultation in addition to East Asian medicine.

After being diagnosed with interstitial cystitis in my early 20s, I became passionate about pursuing better health through changes to my diet and lifestyle. I encountered AIP along my journey, and am amazed at how much better I feel as a result. I know firsthand how difficult it can be to transition to AIP and navigate the diet that suits your health best, and I want to be able to support others through that process. I am happy to work with patients on their AIP diet either in the context of an acupuncture treatment protocol, or to do only nutritional and dietary consultation.

When I’m not with patients, I also work as a Pilates and GYROTONIC® trainer. In my free time, I love to cook, read my way out from a small mountain of books, and cater to my cats’ every whim.

Elizabeth Sedlak, ND Naturopathic Doctor

Address:
25195 SW Parkway Ave Ste 210
Wilsonville, Oregon 97070

I am a licensed Naturopathic Doctor (ND) in the state of Oregon. I received my doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon in 2013 and my bachelor degree in Biochemistry from the University of Oregon in 2009.

When I was a child I struggled a great deal with allergies and asthma, then mysterious joint pains, and by late adolescence I received my first diagnoses of autoimmune diseases and food intolerances. I so wish the Autoimmune Paleo Protocol had been around then! I began to do my own research into health and nutrition, which took me on a 6-year detour through vegetarianism and veganism. Although I was the healthiest I ever had been during those years, I realize now that I was inadvertently depriving my body of certain important nutrients (pre-formed vitamin A, essential fatty acids, heme iron, etc.) that would have been much more helpful in supporting a deranged immune system.

In naturopathic medical school we learn to “treat the gut” as one of the first steps for most patients with chronic disease. This is exactly the aim of AIP! I am so glad to have this template and this body of research to help manage my own health conditions and to provide to my growing population of patients who also struggle with autoimmune diseases of various types. Much of my practice is focused on immune, (neuro)endocrine, and digestive issues – and especially the interplay between these systems.

Heidi Weiss, MPH, NTP Integrative Health Educator, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner

*Practices virtually worldwide

Hi! I am Heidi Weiss.

I hold a bachelor’s degree in Chinese from Reed College, and a master’s of Public Health in Health Education/Integrative Health from Portland State University. As a result of my lifelong interest in nutrition an movement as the foundation of health, I certified as a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (FNTP) and Pilates teacher in 2006.

My travels in Asia in my twenties and exploration of ancient Chinese medical texts in my undergraduate education led me to deepen these studies by exploring the field of nutritional anthropology during my master’s studies. After having children and discovering food intolerances in both myself and my children, I became more passionate about learning about and using therapeutic diets to bring about healing. I have witnessed the profound benefits of adopting the AIP diet and lifestyle in both clients and friends, and am very inspired about the potential this movement has for turning the tide of the growing incidence of auto-immune disease worldwide.

In my sessions with clients, I use a combination of motivational interviewing, manual bodywork, pressure point therapy, and intuitive energy work. My experience with evolutionary astrology, nutritional anthropology, and energy work techniques from the Reiki and Jin Shin Jyutsu traditions also inform my work. I offer both group classes and one-on-one nutrition sessions at my Southeast Portland Location, Lemon Tree Wellness, as well as virtual coaching worldwide.

Elizabeth Zenger, Ph.D., L.Ac Acupuncturist, Herbalist

Address:
811 NW 20th Ave., Ste. 203
Portland, Oregon 97209
USA

I am a licensed acupuncturist in private practice in northwest Portland since 2001. I work with people who suffer from chronic illness, physical and emotional issues, and those seeking life-long wellness and core-level healing. My work focuses on body-mind healing, and I have a special interest in the connection of emotional trauma with physical illness, including autoimmune disorders.

I practice a style of acupuncture (Five Element) and a bodywork system (Zero Balancing) which treat body, mind and spirit. I am also a Board-certified Chinese herbalist. Many times, I have seen first-hand how important proper nutrition can be to getting the most benefit out of acupuncture and bodywork. Nutrition is also key for wellness and self-care.

Over my years of practice, I have expanded nutritional therapy because I know how effective it can be. I am now happy to offer coaching in the Autoimmune Paleo Protocol as an added benefit for my clients. While most people come to me for Five Element acupuncture or Zero Balancing, individual consultation sessions on nutrition and the AIP protocol can be arranged.

Adele Cressy Chiropractor and Nutrition Coach. Shortly after I began practice I helped form a clinic specializing in diseases such as HIV and cancer. I quickly discovered how amazing the body is, how strong people can be, and how much food can affect the body, especially the immune system. Many foods cause inflammation which causes pain and weakens the immune system. Removing these foods by improving your diet often reduces the inflammation and pain while strengthening the immune system. I find the relationship between food and disease fascinating and feel that now is an important time to work towards strengthening our immune systems through diet. This is how I can help you. By combining my Chiropractic education and clinical experience with my nutrition knowledge I can guide you to make changes in your diet that will reduce inflammation, strengthen your immune system and improve your quality of life. When you are ready to make changes in your life that will help control your symptoms please contact me, I look forward to working with you.
