Amelia Brown Occupational Therapist, OTD, OTR/L, Certified Functional Nutrition Coach
*Also Practices Virtually Worldwide
Hi, I’m Amelia, a full-time Occupational Therapist in Nashville, TN. With four years of clinical practice in acute care , I’ve treated patients with all kinds of conditions—heart disease, strokes, autoimmune disease, neurological disorders—you name it. Everyday, I see the suffering that comes with these conditions, and with one in two Americans having a chronic disease (and one in four having several), I continue to ask why. Yes, genetics and other non-modifiable factors play a significant part, but there’s also incontrovertible evidence pointing directly to modern lifestyle and diet. This realization, as well as my own experience navigating Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, has inspired me to complete additional training in order to become a health coach myself.
My mission is to empower others to make informed, thoughtful choices when it comes to their health in order to improve quality of life. I help clients with autoimmune disease address the necessary lifestyle changes to decrease internal inflammation. I provide education on meal planning, resources and recipes that aid in restoring gut health. I work with clients to identify food sensitivities and triggers while simultaneously incorporating nutrient-dense, healing foods. I also focus on strategies to:
-Manage stress and mindset
-Improve sleep quality and hygiene
-Promote regular and intentional exercise
-Reduce environmental toxin exposure
-Effectively communicate with medical practitioners
Whether you are impacted by chronic autoimmune disease or just want to live well, I would love to connect. Find me at ameliabrownwellness.com
Lindsay Peter-Contesse, MS, RD, LDN Registered Dietitian, Licensed Dietitian/Nutritionist and AIP Certified Coach
Hi, I am Lindsay Peter Contesse, dietitian and owner of Nashville Autoimmune Nutrition, LLC. I specialize in autoimmune diseases and gut issues. Autoimmune diseases are complex and present differently for each person. From sorting through recommendations of food choices, supplements, medications, or even being told there is no solution, or “It’s all in your head,”—it can be completely overwhelming. I focus on the whole person in approaching these issues with clients by looking for the root cause of symptoms, and addressing all aspects of the client’s lifestyle, including nutrition, stress, sleep, movement, and more.
Managing chronic illness can be exhausting, confusing, and lonely. The journey to healing is not always a straight line. I provide a comprehensive assessment and ongoing support to make adjustments in your journey to healing. Follow up appointments allow for discussing progress, adjusting nutritional & lifestyle plans, and creating manageable next steps.
Each client is different. Some common goals include: symptom relief, healing, and regaining a better quality of life. In working together and setting goals, we ensure they are realistic, achievable, and will work within your lifestyle. If anything above resonates with you, I would love to hear your story.

I’m Aria Simpson LAc., a California Board Licensed Acupuncturist and practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as Functional Medicine. I hold a Master’s of Science degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine and a B.S in Environmental Science. I’m here because I am passionate about helping clients both gain a deeper understanding of their health, and feel empowered to make optimal choices in their lives. My approach to healthcare is both integrated and holistic; I believe in a multifaceted approach to treating autoimmune disease. I find that healing is most effectively achieved when integrating eastern modalities, diet and supplement coaching, and modern tools such as lab analysis. I work closely with other providers to create a strong support network for your health.
I am also here, because I know what it feels like to experience a chronic health issue. When I was diagnosed with a hyperthyroid autoimmune condition called Grave’s disease; I used the tools of integrated medicine to heal my body. Following the AIP protocol has been essential to my health and recovery.
I care deeply about educating my clients wherever they happen to be on their life journey. It is my belief that the discoveries each person makes in their own personal wellness, will benefit the health and wellbeing of future generations. I look forward to working with you.

I myself have suffered through IBS-C, chronic cortisol dysregulation, Raynaud’s, and low thyroid function throughout my 20’s.

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.

I offer virtual nutrition counseling via phone or video.

Terry Morgeson Certified Functional Nutrition Therapist

Each woman has a unique set of life experiences and situations that affect how well her body functions which is why quick fixes often don’t work. The key is to take a synergistic approach instead.
As your health partner, we educate and empower you to think differently about what’s going on in your body. Because when you start asking better questions, you discover the biochemical factors (i.e., your unique root causes) that are negatively impacting your health.
We bridge the gap between what your doctor does medically to manage your autoimmunity and the therapeutic food and lifestyle plan she wants you to implement but doesn’t manage for you. When you see your whole picture, you can start to achieve sustainable results that get you back to enjoying the beautiful and important parts of your life.
If you’re ready to think differently about your healthcare, we invite you to take our radicle approach where you can start reducing your symptoms and begin thriving in autoimmunity.
