Adele Cressy Chiropractor and Nutrition Coach. Shortly after I began practice I helped form a clinic specializing in diseases such as HIV and cancer. I quickly discovered how amazing the body is, how strong people can be, and how much food can affect the body, especially the immune system. Many foods cause inflammation which causes pain and weakens the immune system. Removing these foods by improving your diet often reduces the inflammation and pain while strengthening the immune system. I find the relationship between food and disease fascinating and feel that now is an important time to work towards strengthening our immune systems through diet. This is how I can help you. By combining my Chiropractic education and clinical experience with my nutrition knowledge I can guide you to make changes in your diet that will reduce inflammation, strengthen your immune system and improve your quality of life. When you are ready to make changes in your life that will help control your symptoms please contact me, I look forward to working with you.

I am a personal trainer and sports performance coach that is always trying to find solutions for whatever obstacles are in the way of my client’s goals. In the 12 years I’ve been practicing I have noticed more and more clients that were having some kind of autoimmune issue or at the very least inflammatory issues that were causing them problems with their health and fitness goals. Regardless of the goal I always approach someone’s plan by what will make the biggest impact for the individual and more often than not it is some kind of dietary adjustment. Currently, I work with individuals online and in person to help them be at their best. There is nothing more fulfilling than helping someone find the answers to having more energy and performing their best, whether it’s in the corporate world or on the field.

I am a person who has journeyed through autoimmunity all of my life. Surrounded by family members whom I now understand were probably battling autoimmunity all of their lives, we’ve gone from underground and under-diagnosed into the light of understanding only in recent years, when I was forced to look not only at my own needs or those of the previous generation, but to the next, when the children started to suffer. When my son was diagnosed with a serious, life-altering autoimmune condition that threatened to take not only his quality of life, but whole organs I knew he needed to thrive, it was time to dig beyond the few modalities I’d engaged to maintain my own health and really get down to root causes through a different approach. We needed an approach that would be more effective than the pharmaceutical drugs that were already making him more sick with every step-up in protocol prescribed through the conventional medical system.

Enter functional medicine
Enter long nights of research, study and experimentation; inquiry and observation. I put to use my decades of experience in one of the world’s leading technology companies as a client-centric, research-driven business development professional with a rare persistence and attention to detail together with coaching credentials I’d pursued as an avocation to uncover, pursue, and coach an approach that’s not discussed in any of the physician, hospital, surgical, or specialist recommendations we’d encountered. I witnessed the turnaround from life-threatening to life-saving sustainability that the healing-based approach of functional medicine can bring. I am now a strategist, a communicator — you might even call me an evangelist — of this approach. And so the online community of was born.

We’re on a mission to achieve remission
Through a functional medicine approach to autoimmunity, remission is possible; improved quality of life is probable. We want to help you achieve it.

Heidi Weiss, MPH, NTP Integrative Health Educator, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner

Portland, Oregon 97202
*Practices virtually worldwide

Hi! I am Heidi Weiss. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Chinese from Reed College, and a master’s of Public Health in Health Education/Integrative Health from Portland State University. As a result of my lifelong interest in nutrition as the foundation of health, I certified as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) and founded Portland Pilates Collective and Wellness Center in 2006.

My travels in Asia in my twenties and exploration of ancient Chinese medical texts in my undergraduate education led me to deepen these studies by exploring the field of nutritional anthropology during my master’s studies. After having children and discovering food intolerances in both myself and my children, I became more passionate about learning about and using therapeutic diets to bring about healing. I have witnessed the profound benefits of adopting the AIP diet and lifestyle in both clients and friends, and am very inspired about the potential this movement has for turning the tide of the growing incidence of auto-immune disease worldwide.

In my sessions with clients, I use a combination of motivational interviewing, manual bodywork, pressure point therapy, and intuitive energy work. My experience with evolutionary astrology, nutritional anthropology, and energy work techniques from the Reiki and Jin Shin Jyutsu traditions also inform my work. I offer both group nutrition classes and one-on-one nutrition sessions in my Southeast Portland location.

Hi, my name is Bianca!

I am an AIP Certified Coach and Certified Health Coach specializing in health transformation, person-centered nutrition and autoimmune conditions.

I battled with a list of unexplained symptoms (which kept me from living my best life) for nearly ten years. When I was eventually diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis in 2013 my journey to heal my body started. Although not easy – what a journey it has been!

I am so inspired to help women improve their health challenges through changes in diet and lifestyle. Not one body is the same – and I help you to figure out what works best for your unique body.

I am based in Johannesburg (East Rand), and do 1:1 and virtual sessions in Afrikaans and English in order to make your AIP transition a little easier, less overwhelming and stressful.

I look forward to talking with you and learning how I can best support you.

I believe optimum health and disease prevention occur in large part by putting the right foods in the body. Every bit of food leads us either closer to disease or closer to health.
I want to empower others on their path to wellness, to never give up on themselves, and to believe that health and feeling good are possible.

I’m a Master Nutrition Therapist (MNT), practicing in Boulder, CO (and virtually). I also work for a leading functional medicine practitioner and am a faculty member at the Nutrition Therapy Institute. I apply a functional and holistic approach to nutrition therapies including:

· Autoimmune Nutrition
· Hormone Balance
· Food Sensitivities, Intolerances, and Allergies
· Digestive Issues, Leaky Gut, Dysbiosis
· Weight Management
· Blood Sugar Imbalances
· Anti-Aging Nutrition

I received a B.S. from Purdue University, and both my CNTP and MNT diplomas from the Nutrition Therapy Institute in Denver, CO.
