Stephanie Ortiz-Grabe Certified Health Coach

*Practices Virtually Worldwide
Hello! My name is Stephanie Ortiz-Grabe and I am a Certified Health Coach, Certified AIP coach and a Physical Therapist. Approximately 20 years ago, I was suffering from extreme joint pain and was now longer able to provide direct physical therapy care to patients and instead transitioned to a leadership position overseeing therapists. After a year of seeing physician specialists and other health practitioners, I was finally diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. I eventually found the Paleo diet that helped my symptoms somewhat and then AIP which made my quality of life so much better. I have 4 other autoimmune/suspected as autoimmune diagnoses, and still live a very full life including hiking, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing in the Colorado Mountains. My goal is to provide guidance and support to others with autoimmune conditions and work collaboratively with your health care providers to aid in optimizing your health and overall wellness. I am available for in-person sessions in the Denver, Colorado Metro area or worldwide via phone or video conferencing.

I am Emilie Davis of Whole Essentials Nutrition; a holistic nutritionist specializing in whole foods and lifestyle changes to help you live your best life. I don’t believe in diets or quick fixes, real change takes time.
I provide nutritional support and counseling to patients with a variety of needs. My interests and specialties include: children and adults with behavioral and neurological disorders, autoimmune disease, gut health, food relationship coaching including intuitive and mindful eating, and more.

Hi, I’m Kriszti, I’m a Certified Sports Nutrition Advisor, a Personal Trainer and an Autoimmune PAleo Certified Coach / Therapist.
I know how hard it is, when you get your diagnose, specially when your doctor tell you you need medication for your entire life. They don’t tell that if you diagnostised with an autoimmune disease and you don’t do something with your digestion and bowel system, you will get another autoimmune disease.
The great news is, you are in the best place, all of my colleagues you can find this site are amazing and they can help you to get back your health, energy and your life.
If you live in Hungary and you choose me, therapy is available both in Hungarian and English. If you live outside of Hungary, onine coaching is also available, please write me an email.
I used to work from blood lab tests, so you can see the amazing result of the Autoimmune Protocoll documented by the lab!
I have great experience with myasthenia gravis, Hashimoto and ulceral colitis.
Take care !

In January of 2012, I was told I have Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. I didn’t really believe it was all that important to do something about it because I didn’t feel sick. Once I finally admitted to myself that it was something I needed to address (it took longer than I’d like to admit), I started taking medication and discovered that it made me feel SO much better. I realized that I had indeed had symptoms for years, they just developed so gradually that my “normal” was constantly adjusting without me realizing.
I knew I could feel even better and was determined to find a way to make it happen. I’m a Librarian at heart with a love of research, and after doing a lot of searching I found the Autoimmune Paleo diet and started there. I saw a noticeable improvement in energy and mood, similar to how I felt when I first started thyroid meds, so I knew I was onto something big.
Was I perfect? Absolutely not. I’m human and changing your diet and lifestyle isn’t easy to do on your own, and I had to find my Why. That why turned out to be an adverse reaction to my medication that sent me to the ER. Thankfully, everything turned out okay, but I was determined to give my body the support it needed to minimize potential hospital visits in the future.
The heart of change is finding your Why, the real reason you want to make those changes. Whether you are struggling with an autoimmune disease or simply want to be healthier and lose weight, I want to help you find your Why and support you on your path to Wellness. It’s a constant work-in-progress, especially for those dealing with autoimmune diseases. Having a coach in your corner helping you navigate the twists and turns of the wellness path can make all the difference, especially when your coach has been there and intimately knows what you’re experiencing.
Debi Bryk Board Certified Holistic Nutritionist and Health Educator
3623 Eggert Rd.
Orchard Park, New York 14127
*Practices Virtually Worldwide
Hello! My name is Debi Bryk and I am a Board Certified Holistic Nutritionist, Health Educator, and member of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP). I am also a Reiki Practitioner, wife, and mother of 4 wonderful children.
My passion for food as medicine began many years ago as I saw so many family members and friends suffering from various conditions that were not improving with conventional medicine as well as my own health declining. Through dietary and lifestyle changes, I have been blessed to not only heal myself, but help many others achieve their optimal health.
As a holistic practitioner I address the whole individual: diet, lifestyle, stress, environmental, toxicity, detoxification, spiritual, and emotional. I specialize in gut health and autoimmune disease and offer an individualized approach as we are all biologically different; therefore, there is no specific diet that is perfect for everyone. I also offer genetic testing which can be a helpful guide in determining the best diet and lifestyle based on your genetics in order to help prevent inflammation or disease and improve or maintain health.
I work with clients one on one either in person or remotely. I also offer nutrition classes and employee wellness programs. Please feel free to contact me for a complimentary phone consultation to discuss your concerns or learn more.
Nicole Erickson, NTC Nutritional Therapy Consultant
Hi. My name is Nicole Erickson. I am a certified Nutritional Therapy Consultant passionate about helping people overcome their digestive distress and better manage their autoimmune symptoms. Using real food nutrition and healthy lifestyle habits through the autoimmune protocol, I help people regain their health.
I became a certified nutritional therapy consultant because I have struggled deeply with my own health. I was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease ulcerative colitis over 10 years ago, but it was only a few years ago that I successfully managed my symptoms and found symptomatic remission. But even in remission, I still suffered from frustrating digestive issues, weight gain, and fatigue. Those issues only got worse when I become a parent and worked full time outside the home. Took a few years for me to reach a much healthier place, but ultimately, with key diet and lifestyle changes and discovering my food sensitivities through the autoimmune protocol, I was lucky enough to make huge improvements. My passion is to help people with the same distress. Reach out to me if you think I can help you.
Doris Romano, RN, RHN Registered Nurse, Registered Holistic Nutritionist
146 Redstone Road
Richmond Hill, Ontario L4S 1T9
Doris Romano is a Registered Nurse and Holistic Nutritionist.
After a year into her nursing career at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, she travelled to a remote island in northern Manitoba to work at a nursing station. Within a month of being there, she was determined to cure diabetes. But one look at the “fresh” produce that was flown in every week, and she knew she was going to have her work cut out for her. After two years, she returned home, feeling defeated and jaded by what she witnessed. But she was also feeling changed. Her experience up north opened her eyes to what true health meant and it impacted where she wanted to put her energy – she went back to school to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and has been fascinated by the power of nutrition ever since.
Soon after was the start of many years of debilitating symptoms and in 2018, she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s. She immediately immersed herself into the autoimmune protocol and was amazed at how quickly it helped. It was the first step in her journey to getting back to feeling like herself again and the results were so powerful that she went on to become an AIP Certified Coach in order to provide other women struggling with autoimmune disease the support they need to live their best life. She launched @myAIPkitchen with the goal of making AIP as simple as possible for women so they can focus on healing and living well with autoimmune disease.
In addition to her private consulting and coaching practice, Doris works in the pharmaceutical industry with patients on biologic therapy for long-term inflammatory conditions. You can follow Doris at @myAIPkitchen on Instagram.
Emily Boudwin Primal Health Coach
1111 S Orchard St
Boise, Idaho 83705
I was diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis August 2014. I was sporadically following a paleo lifestyle since 11/2012. Meaning that the 80/20 rule became an obsession with adding gluten treats that I missed, which led to a large increase in carbs and gluten treats. I have figured out that the 80/20 rule does not work with me. When I was diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis I immediately purchased Sarah Ballantyne’s book The Paleo Approach. I read it over a weeks period of time and immediately started the AIP protocol. Within a week of starting the protocol my liver enzymes started dropping. My IBS-C, that I was diagnosed with when I was 18, symptoms disappeared. I did not realize that I was experiencing symptoms all of the time with periodic flares. In November 2014, 3 months later, I started my food reintroduction’s. The primary foods I reacted to were eggs that caused severe and prolonged stomachache, nightshades that caused IBS symptoms and dairy causing tiredness and nasal issues. I own and operate my own medical massage business, since 2011. Adding a whole body approach has made a difference in my clients lives. May 2017 I earned my Primal Health Coach certification. Since January 2015 I have been learning and working on becoming a Restorative Exercise Specialist through Katy Bowman. Very shortly I will be adding AIP Health Coaching locally here in Boise, Idaho where I live.
Adele Cressy, DC Chiropractor
2304 E Burnside #4
Portland, Oregon 97214
Hi I’m Adele Cressy, DC. Nutrition has always been a passion of mine, and I am excited to combine my chiropractic education with AIP protocol. Practicing as a Chiropractor for over 15 years has taught me that no part of our body is isolated, all aspects of our bodies are connected. Everything we do, say, think, eat, drink and breath affects every cell, organ, system in our bodies. AIP has a way of addressing these aspects of our lives in a protocol that guides you in your healing journey. I enjoy combining the wholistic approach of chiropractic with the wholistic approach of AIP when treating my patients. If you are dedicated to making changes in your life to control your symptoms please contact me, I look forward to working with you.
Kate Jay, NTP, CGP Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Certified Gluten Practitioner
Vancouver, British Columbia
*Practices virtually worldwide
Hi, I’m Kate Jay, a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner certified by the Nutritional Therapy Association, Certified Gluten Practitioner through Dr Tom O’Bryan (thedr.com), and a qualified chef. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism 20 years ago and lived with symptoms, despite medication, for years. A family trauma nine years ago triggered a downward spiral in my health, leaving me with a wide range of issues such as crippling anxiety, panic attacks, heart palpitations and symmetrical joint swelling.
Having a strong family history of autoimmune disease (including Rheumatoid Arthritis) I knew I had to act quickly. I was dismissed by my doctor, despite elevated inflammatory markers, so I decided to advocate for myself. That’s when I found the Autoimmune Protocol. Incredible things happened once I immersed myself into the protocol, which is why I started my blog, Healing Family Eats, where I share the recipes I make for myself, my husband and our two teens. The healing I was experiencing was motivating to say the least and my passion for using food as medicine fuelled the desire to help other people thrive in the same way my family and I are. Since the AIP came into our lives our kids have shot up in height and they glow with health and vitality. Our son has progressed from a depressed, anxious and aggressive boy to a wonderful, calm, loving and happy teen. My inflammation has come right down, my thumbs are no longer painful and swollen, and my blood work suggests no RA whatsoever. I’ve also reduced my thyroid medication.
I’m excited to be an AIP Coach, as I know the skills I have learned will help so many people currently battling with their own health. I advise, guide and support my clients on a health journey that continues in the right direction. I do this with a holistic approach, using a nutrient dense, whole food diet and always respect bio-individuality. And as a total foodie, I want you to learn to love food again, at the same time as helping you heal.
