Dubai Healthcare City
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
* Practices Virtually Worldwide
Hello! I’m a conventionally-trained physician and a proud alumnus of the Harvard School of Public Health. I’ve been in the exact position where you find yourselves in. When I was in medical school, I was diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease and was told by my senior colleagues that I’d have to “live with it.” At one point, I was put on an SSRI which is a commonly-used type of antidepressant. That’s when I discovered the power of Functional Medicine. Don’t just accept what your doctor tells you. Inquire. Research. Challenge. And see where it takes you. I invite you to take this journey with me.
Ros Connolly Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach
*Practices Virtually Worldwide
My name is Ros Connolly and I was inspired to train as a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach following my own health issues. I was diagnosed with the Autoimmune Disease Rheumatoid Arthritis in February 2016 becoming very debilitated. I am delighted to say that I have managed to drastically improve my own health through diet and lifestyle change, and I am passionate about the difference this can make in people’s lives. I completed the AIP Certified Health Coaching programme to further increase my depth of knowledge in this specific area, to help others with autoimmune conditions as this is where my personal experience lies. As your Health Coach I will meet you where you are at on your health journey. We will work at your pace to empower you make the changes you want to make. I will treat you as a whole person, knowing that one size does not fit all. I will assist you to find a new level of awareness and trust in your body. We will make progress in a variety of areas including food choices, stress management, sleep, movement, spirituality, personal strengths, emotional resilience and life balance. I am happy to collaborate with your other Health Care Providers as we work together so you can achieve your optimal health. I enjoy building a great rapport with my clients and pride myself on giving the best support I can to each individual to help them achieve lasting change. I am based in Altrincham, near Manchester in the UK. I mostly work with clients virtually, however if you are local, I can meet in person. I find both online and telephone appointments work well as they can fit into busy lives very easily.
Hege Skirbekk Livsstilssykepleier, Helse og AIP Coach
Email: [email protected]
Jeg er sykepleier og har en masterutdanning i folkehelse med vekt på endring av vaner. I tillegg har jeg jobbet som intensivsykepleier i mange år, og har virkelig sett hva usunn og uheldig livsstil kan være årsaken til ulike helseutfordringer.
Jeg har i mange år jobbet som livsstilssykepleier og har hjulpet mange med ulike helse utfordringer.
Jeg har selv hjulpet min egen kropp, både med fordøyelse, søvn, stress og og smerter bare ved å gjøre noen endringer på kosthold og livsstil. Jeg ønsker derfor å gi tilbake og hjelpe andre med utfordringer innen; fordøyelse, tarmhelse, immunforsvar , autoimmune sykdommer og hormoner på deres vei til wellness, bedre helse og livskvalitet. Jeg jobber spesielt med deg som begynner å bli litt eldre og har fått utfordringer med lavt energinivå, søvnvansker, depresjon og angst, glemskhet, hjernetåke, mage og tarmproblemer, kroppslige diffuse smerter og stivhet, samt generell følelse av manglende vitalitet.
Leger, sykepleiere og annet helsepersonell vil kanskje «putte» alle dine symptomer i en boks “dette kan relateres til din alder” Not! Jeg har hatt alle disse symptomene før jeg virkelig satte meg inn i årsaken til de problemene jeg hadde, nå er jeg 55 år og er sunnere og sprekere enn på lang tid. Jeg har kontroll på det som gjør meg godt, derfor kan jeg se frem til årene fremover med
livskvalitet og ikke minst energi. Det er den beste presangen for meg, og derfor ønsker jeg det samme for deg! Du som er motivert til å gjøre endringer som vil være bra på mange plan i ditt liv.
Jeg er her for å hjelpe deg.
Jenny Keffer Certified AIP Coach, Fertility Specialist
Greensburg, Pennsylvania 15601
Hello, my name is Jenny Keffer and I help women with PCOS to become pregnant naturally using the AIP diet. In my private practice right outside of Pittsburgh, PA, I have been working with women with PCOS since 2013. I started by offering Fertility Massage which led to Fertility Coaching.
I started to see a lot of women with PCOS. I became intrigued and the question in my mind was always WHY. What was the driving force behind PCOS? My research led me to the Autoimmune Paleo diet. There were so many parallels between Autoimmune Disease and PCOS.
I started recommending the AIP diet to my clients. At first, people thought I was crazy with this outrageous, out-of-the-box application of the AIP diet. BUT an amazing thing happened-they started getting pregnant! I wanted to be able to offer more support to my clients so I decided to become an AIP Coach.
Currently, I offer a “Getting Pregnant with PCOS” Group Program that is a step by step guide to getting pregnant naturally with PCOS. Additionally, I see clients 1-1 both virtually and in person in my private practice.
Other things to know about me? I have Celiac Disease so I have personally used AIP and I know firsthand how profound the healing can be throughout the whole body.
I look forward to helping you on your journey to motherhood!
Cassandra Carpenter, FNTP Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner
*Practices Virtually Worldwide
After suffering for almost two decades with a debilitating autoimmune gut dysmotility disorder and getting nowhere with an allopathic approach that focused on prescription medications only, I finally started my road to wellness by addressing my nutritional deficiencies, stress and lifestyle choices. I’m a boymom, hockey mom, wife and work full-time, so I understand how overwhelming all of this can seem in a world full of appointments, practices, deadlines and then some. When my oldest son was diagnosed as Celiac, I was able to successfully lean on AIP to help us through that transition period.
My focus is on helping people meld together the multifaceted approach that is required to truly bring your health and wellness back into perspective. With a B.Sc. in Biology and Chemistry and my certification in Functional Nutritional Therapy, I have a deep love and understanding of the human body and what our cells truly need to function in a capacity that reflects life and vitality. I look forward to connecting with you to see how I can help you regain the health that you’ve lost.

Natalie Steen, FNTP Nutritional Therapy Practitioner
Vancouver, Washington 98662
*Practices virtually worldwide
Welcome! My name is Natalie Steen, I am a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, and a Restorative Wellness Practitioner. I work with autoimmune clients who are ready to take their health back into their hands!
There are over 140 autoimmune diseases which have common root causes of immune system dysfunction.
The specific testing I do allows us to get a detailed view of what the intestinal terrain looks like, so we can create a targeted protocol for your specific immune system recovery.
The AIP diet (including modified versions) has proven to be a key part of this process.
I have shared in the joy my clients experience when finally feeling that their body and their health is back in their control.
Your body has an amazing innate ability to heal, when given the proper raw materials. I look forward to partnering with you on your healing journey!
Claire Murphy AIP Coach, Senior Yoga Teacher
*Practices Virtually Worldwide
Hello! My name is Claire Murphy and I have been fascinated with what makes us truly healthy for most of my life.
With my Bachelor of Science degrees in Chemistry and Biochemistry I love to dive deep into what is really going on at the deepest, cellular level. If every cell is provided with the resources and environment to thrive, then the whole person will thrive.
But health is more than chemical reactions. Lifestyle factors such as spirituality, rewarding work, movement, building stress resilience and prioritising sleep all have a huge contribution to well being.
During my 20 years as a yoga teacher I explored the Eastern approaches to well being, including appropriate movement, breath & energy expansion, mindset, and spirituality – which I define as knowing how your purpose and passions fit into the larger tapestry of life.
I have a diploma in nutritional supplementation but believe most of our nutritional needs can come from eating a nutrient dense, real food diet most of the time.
My journey of exploring human well being became personal when I was diagnosed with Hashimotos Thyroiditis and Vitiligo. Following the AIP approach restored my energy, mood, focus, normal weight, cholesterol levels and my general enthusiasm for life and I look forward to guiding you back to your true self as well, through both diet and lifestyle changes.
Megan Kelly Certified Holistic Nutritionist
*Practices virtually worldwide
Megan is The Realistic Holistic, a holistic nutritionist focused on helping women with autoimmune disorders find fertility in a way that is realistic AND holistic!
Megan became a holistic practitioner to help people like herself who stuggle with autoimmunity. Megan has battled both Celiac Disease and Hashimoto’s for many years. There was a time when she found herself severely underweight, depressed and struggling with amenorrhea. As someone who always wanted to be a Mother, she felt defeated by her conditions and had nearly come to terms with the concept that her hormones were just too far gone and that she would never be able to conceive.
The AIP diet was a saving grace for Megan. It was the only approach that finally put her digestion back on track, helped her gain the weight back, balance hormones, bring her antibodies down and finally find fertility so she could start the family she has always wanted!
Now, Megan has become an expert at helping to customize the AIP to you and your lifestyle in order to not only help you heal but also set you up so that you are able to support a healthy pregnancy!
