Natalie Bedard Certified Master Health Coach, Fitness Coach
Chilliwack, British Columbia
*Also Practicing Virtually Worldwide
Hi, I’m Natalie, and I specialize in fitness and nutrition protocols for women in peri-menopause and post menopause as well as individuals with autoimmune disease. I have lived with autoimmune disease since childhood and have been able to achieve and maintain abundant health with nutrition and specific exercise protocols. I was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease at 15, but I was not tested for autoimmune disease until much later in life when I was later diagnosed with Graves’ disease.
My experience with health care professionals has been disappointing until I learned how to advocate for myself and build a knowledgeable health care team. I now help others advocate for themselves to build a health care team that respects their autonomy and treats them with dignity.
In my coaching practice, I use a structured, systematic, science-based approach to help my clients achieve “deep health” -thriving in all domains: physical, mental, emotional, environmental etc. using movement, mindfulness exercises, breath work, stress reduction techniques, improving sleep hygiene and more.
My own autoimmune and menopause journey has enabled me to coach not only with knowledge, but also empathy and compassion.
My overall goal is for my clients to not need me. It’s a good day when clients feel like they have all the tools they need to maintain their progress on their own. I am a guide and teacher; empowering my clients to make lasting change.
My educational background is in Master Health Coaching through Precision Nutrition, Fitness & Nutrition Expert program through Fit Chicks Academy, 200hr Yoga Teacher Training through Frikshun Yoga, Jikiden Reiki level 1 & 2 plus many more health and wellness CEUs.
I offer free 15 minute consultations. Please see my website for details.

Vicki Westlund, NTP Nutritional Therapy Practitioner
Email: [email protected]
1601 Columbia Park Trail
Richland, Washington 99352
Hello! My name is Vicki Westlund! As Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, (since 2011), I have the privilege of working together with clients from all walks of life, with a varied list of health conditions. It’s one of my greatest joys in life. Our practice is based on the principals of Functional Medicine and we use a whole body, whole food approach. Now as an AIP Paleo Certified Coach, I’ve expanded those whole food principals to include Autoimmune Disorders. As our practice has grown, thus has our numbers of autoimmune patients. As well, I truly enjoy being a licensed Restart instructor, as it allows me to reach a large volume of our patients to set a foundation of eating healthy. And most recently have embarked in teaching weight loss classes, again with their principals based in whole food. My foundational interest in nutrition began two decades ago when my now 27-year-old son was diagnosed with autism at the age of three. Fighting all dogma on treating autism, I began my own path. With nutritional and dietary interventions, my son has exceeded all expectations and has a thriving, fulfilled life! I was hooked on helping others! I would love to help you tailor your lifestyle and dietary needs! Bio individuality is key!

Natalie Forster Integrative Dietitian, AIP Certified Coach, NLP Certified
*Practices Virtually Worldwide
I’ve witnessed transformations so profound, in both myself and clients, one would think they were magic. But as I’ve come to learn, the body heals with ease when worked with holistically.
I have been a Registered Dietitian practicing integrative nutrition for nearly 10 years. For the 22 year before that, I believed my own autoimmune condition was incurable. Being dependent upon medication and spending nights in the emergency room was the only reality I knew. It was tough, and fortunately, I was tougher. It’s been nearly a decade since I’ve depended on medication and when asked what got me here, my response is simple — I began eating better and breathing better.
Of course, there’s much more to it. Cue, the creation of Revived Roots — a science-based wellness company empowering you with holistic nutrition coaching and lifestyle tools for a happy, healthy, fulfilling life. 🌿
The Revived Roots philosophy is built on the principles of integrative and functional nutrition with special emphasis on autoimmunity. We trust innate body wisdom, lean on technology for personalization, and look at symptoms as communication, not error. We treat you as an individual, see you as your full potential, and give you full responsibility for your health.
When I’m not in action with clients, you’ll find me traveling the wild lands and waters of our beautiful planet with my best canine side-kick, Shasta the dog.
Ludy de Menten, Ph.D. Certified Health Coach, AIP Certified Coach, Certified Genomic Medicine Clinician
Raleigh, North Carolina
*Practices in-person locally and virtually Worldwide
Hi! My name is Ludivine de Menten or Ludy. I worked about 10 years in Pharmaceutical companies developing drugs for patients with autoimmune and chronic diseases. My health journey led me to change career, seek knowledge on holistic modalities to manage the 2 autoimmune diseases I was diagnosed with, Hashimoto (Dx at 25yo) and Vitiligo (Dx at 15yo), and help others with what I learned.
I now support people with autoimmune or inflammatory diseases to manage their symptoms with nutrient-rich food and an anti-inflammatory lifestyle, and fine-tuning with nutrigenomics and epigenetics.
By fully nourishing your whole body (mind, cells & soul), you can express the genes allowing your body to heal and switch off the harmful genes responsible for health issues, and, ultimately, regenerate your body and thrive.
Originally from Belgium and living today in Raleigh, NC, I’m offering AIP Coaching and Genomic Medicine/Nutrigenomics recommendations in English or French.

Christina Tidwell, MN, RN, NC-BC Functional Nutrition Coach
Los Angeles, CA 90290
*Practices virtually and worldwide
Hi, I’m Christina Tidwell and I am a Registered Nurse and Functional Nutrition Coach. At 18 years old, I was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disorder called Adult-Onset Still’s Disease (AOSD). Western Medicine treatments gave me some relief, but I was still left struggling and feeling deficient in many areas of my life until finally discovering the power of food as medicine. Since focusing on healthy whole foods, learning disease triggers, and finding ways to reduce flare-ups, I am able to live a healthy, disease-free life.
Since then, I have become a RN, studied nutrition, and devoted my life to holistic health. My experience in conventional medicine as a RN has provided me great insight into the current management of autoimmune disease. I believe effective treatment of autoimmune disease involves bringing together the best of conventional medicine and a more holistic approach with attention to diet, digestive health, stress, relationships and our environment. Having worked as an RN for several years I have seen the many ways in which those with autoimmune disease aren’t receiving this whole-person care in our medical system and why autoimmune health coaches are absolutely essential to fill in the gaps and facilitate sustainable, transformational healing!
I am the owner and founder of Live Well with Christina, a holistic health and nutrition coaching practice specializing in helping clients with autoimmune disease take control of their health through diet, lifestyle shifts and personal empowerment. If you’re suffering from chronic autoimmune conditions, I have been there myself and I’m ready to help you increase energy levels, reduce inflammation, and work on the possible root causes of your physical and emotional imbalance, so you can move beyond chronic illness and achieve optimal health. Learn more about my coaching program here.
I offer virtual nutrition counseling via phone or video.
