Amanda Chocko, NTP Nutritional Therapy Practitioner

Hi, I am Amanda Chocko and I believe in the power of nutrition in combating chronic disease. I learned this first hand through my own health struggles with Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Graves Disease, anxiety and insomnia. Although prescription drugs initially helped to manage my symptoms, I knew that could have more control over my illness. That is when I turned to a holistic approach to reclaim my health and vitality. I was able restore my own health by bringing my body back into balance thru nutritional and lifestyle adjustments. This experience inspired me to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Certified AIP Coach. Now, I empower others reclaim their own health and well being through a step-by-step, bio-individual approach that emphasizes nutrient-dense, whole foods and healthy lifestyle recommendations. I would love to help you do the same.

Hello! I’m Alissa, a health and wellness coach, holistic nutritionist, and your personal wellness advocate.

After being diagnosed with multiple autoimmune conditions, I set sail on the Autoimmune Protocol, and completely turned around my health.

Now, as a coach, I work to provide individuals with the information and tools they need to take charge of their own health and become their own health advocates. I use a holistic, root-cause approach to help my clients better understand sources of ill health, and together, we create individualized plans intended to establish healthy habits that lead to long-lasting wellness.

Through my personal health journey, and my work with clients, I have become a firm believer in integrative and holistic health care, and in the body’s natural ability to achieve homeostasis, given the right tools.

I am a proponent of accessible health care, and I offer my services virtually, giving clients the opportunity to meet more conveniently in support of their health.

Interested in working together? Connect with me via the website or email address above.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Hello, my name is Kelly Michele Shattuck. I have worked in the natural food industry for over 30 years. My mother started Harmony Farms, an independent locally owned health food store in 1984. I began a career there in my teens.

After being diagnosed with Addison’s Disease in September of 2006, and spending a week in the hospital, I decided I wanted to delve even deeper into studies pertaining to natural remedies and health.

I recently completed studies to become an Autoimmune Paleo Certified Coach. I look forward to guiding and supporting you on your wellness journey. Let’s discuss healing your body and calming your mind.

Jelena Katić PharmD, Health & Lifestyle Coach , AIP Certified Coach

The journey to vibrant health starts with your decision to take control of your health by making it your priority. It is achievable by providing clarity and support, faith in the process, consistency, and lots of love and tenderness for yourself.

This is a lifelong journey so the goal is to enjoy it and set yourself up for success by :

-falling in love with the idea of discovering and regaining your power and living your true self, so that every step becomes a victory.

-adopting your unique formula that nourishes your body, mind, and soul.

-finding and creating support within and around you as a solid foundation for your journey.

I have learned and adopted this holistic approach after 5 years of searching for solutions to many autoimmune issues in my family and the AIP Protocol is its basis.

Being an analytical and open-minded person with a pharmaceutical degree, I couldn’t accept the option that the root cause of those issues is unknown and that there is a one-size-fits-all approach.

Realizing how much benefit this experience brought to my family, I became passionate about spreading it further as a health and lifestyle coach.

My name is Jelena and I’m here to help you to develop a mindful approach to your body by following its rhythm and needs with understanding so that you can make healthy choices that support your body, mind, and soul.

Hi, my name is Sarah. I am a mother, a wife, a nurse, and a holistic health coach. I love the outdoors. Gardening and hiking are equivalent to meditation to me. I am also very familiar with stress, chronic health struggles, and histamine intolerance. I was 17 when I left the doctor with my first prescription for an anti-depressant. I complained of chronic joint pain that was so severe that it kept me up at night. My doctor didn’t look any further than his prescription pad and insisted that it was all in my head. That was the start of a long journey of seeking answers from the medical community, only to be labeled as anxious and depressed. Over the years, I experienced a wide array of symptoms, including chronic hives, migraine headaches, fatigue, brain fog, joint pain, extreme bloating, insomnia, and more. There were times that I felt hopeless, and I wondered if maybe I was just “crazy.” In 2012 I had a psoriasis flare that had spread to my face, and I couldn’t open my eye all the way. I also developed chronic hives which took over my life. This was my rock bottom, my wake-up call, the catalyst to find my way and take back my power over my body. I found many like me through the internet, and I didn’t feel so hopeless and alone. I also found that there is a lot that you can do for yourself with dietary changes, learning to manage stress, and reducing toxins in your environment. I learned to find balance after feeling helpless and hopeless. My goal is to help others do the same. Inspired to help others, I sought to further my education. I became a certified functional medicine health coach, AIP and primal certified, and a health coaching certificate for my day job as a nurse. I seek to empower you to take back your power over your body, mind, and spirit so that you can live a whole and happy life.

*Also Practices Virtually Worldwide

My name is Maida Ference and I’ve been a practicing Nutritional Therapy Practitioner since 2018. My passion is empowering you to connect to your body, to help you discover the food and lifestyle choices that are obstacles to your best quality of life. We’ll address root causes, rather than treating symptoms. You can expect encouraging, non-judgmental guidance with respect to your health concerns, priorities, personality, history, and life circumstances. Making changes to your diet and lifestyle can be challenging, but it is all the more frustrating when the options you have tried are impractically restrictive to follow long-term. My goal is not only to help you feel great, but to do so in a way that is pleasurable enough to become your new way of living.
