Janice LaFontaine Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, AIP Certified Coach

Redmond, Washington

Hello! I’m Janice LaFontaine, an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and AIP Certified Coach out of the greater Seattle area. I work with moms who are motivated to make a significant change in their health through individualized nutrition and lifestyle management to reach their health goals. I firmly believe the foundation to all health starts here.

My personal autoimmune health journey has been with Graves’ disease and it’s what brought me here to help others in this community. An autoimmune journey can be a lot to navigate through. I’ve been through remission and flare ups, medication, alternative treatments, and debilitating symptoms such as dramatic weight loss, brain fog, adrenal fatigue, insomnia, hair loss, heart palpitations and more. Through all this, I experienced tremendous improvement and healing when adjustments to my diet, lifestyle and environment were made following a functional medicine approach where we uncovered the underlying causes of my Graves’ disease.

As a Certified AIP Coach, I will help guide you through the confusion, overwhelm and often times conflicting information that’s out there so you can experience autoimmune wellness for yourself. Together, we will find the root causes of your symptoms to help you on your way to autoimmune wellness.

As a mom of three, I realize the challenges we face when it comes to caring for our own needs while caring for the needs of those around us. The reality is, we cannot care for the needs of others very well when we are not well ourselves.

I want to encourage you that autoimmune wellness is possible, and I want you to experience it, too. We should all be able to experience health and vitality the way our lives were intended to be!

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.

I offer virtual nutrition counseling via phone or video.
