I’m also a health coach for the online program, SAD to AIP in SIX.

Rachel Galperin Certified Health Coach

Fair Lawn New Jersey
*Practices Virtually Worldwide

Hi there! I’m Rachel Galperin. I’m a Certified Integrative Health Coach, Artist, Writer & Recipe Developer. I enjoy teaching folks with allergies, autoimmune symptoms and disordered eating habits how to heal am passionate about using food, plants and nature as all equally important sources of medicine to do so.

When working 1:1 with a client I often integrate writing or art to process trauma or roadblocks. The practice of writing through trauma has helped tremendously in my own healing journey as a creative with autoimmune conditions and I love using similar methods with my clients.

Being on an autoimmune healing journey can be a long, hard and lonely road. And it has taken me over a decade to get a proper diagnosis. I spent a majority of this decade trying to convince doctors that I am worthy of treatment, which is a tremendous process to take on alone and I am grateful to have had my own source of support and guidance.

This is also a big part of my focus with clients. Having the encouragement, guidance and support from someone who had been through a similar process and is able to guide you from illness to health is an incredible opportunity. I am so grateful to be able to offer this service to you.

In my spare time you can find me reading, writing novels and poetry, playing with my pets, cooking up a storm and foraging for local wild plants.

Kyle Meers, DC AIP Health Coach, Certified Autoimmune Disease Specialist

*Practices Virtually Worldwide

Hello! My name is Dr. Kyle Meers and I am creator of the Autoimmune Reset Program. I am a certified autoimmune disease specialist and AIP healthcoach and have been working with clients online and in private practice for over a decade.

Believe it or not, Autoimmune diseases such as: Hashimoto’s, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Chron’s, Celiac, Ulcerative Colitis, Lupus, and other tissue related problems can be overcome naturally, without medication, more diagnosis, or endless trips to the doctor’s office…

That was hard for my clients grasp considering many of them consulted with multiple doctors, therapists and specialists having spent tons of money on treatment with no results…

But once they understood the true underlying cause of their autoimmune concern, they were able to use our secret weapon to find out exactly where their problem was stemming from…

From there it was as simple as putting together a step-by-step game plan to get results. And for some of them they saw those results in a matter of weeks!

And it wasn’t just overcoming the autoimmune disease, they also saw increases in energy, focus and productivity, better sleep and even pounds lost.

If you want to check out how we do this, watch this brand-new masterclass where I share all the details…

It will absolutely worth your time…

Hello, my name is Shannon, a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Autoimmune Paleo Certified Coach.

I spent the first 20 years of my career as a pharmacist where I discovered, first hand, just how little focus nutrition and lifestyle receives in most medical offices. As a self-professed nutrition nerd, I knew that so many of my pharmacy clients could benefit from guidance in this area.

Following a move from Canada to the US, I followed my passion and became a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition. It was also around this time that I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, something I had suspected for years, but struggled to receive a diagnosis. And even with a diagnosis, no guidance was given as to what I could do to help manage my autoimmune disease and prevent its progression.

I knew then that helping others become the key player in the management of their health concerns was what I wanted to do.

Evergreen Wellness Academy was founded by two Functional Nutritionists on the autoimmune spectrum. Our experiences in our own health journeys drive our goal of providing you with the education, care and support that we, like so many autoimmune warriors, never received but absolutely deserve.

Mindy Hazen Occupational Therapist, OTR/L

Harrisonville, Missouri
*Practices Virtually Worldwide

Hi, I’m Mindy. I have been working in acute care treating adults with chronic illness/autoimmune disease, etc. in the area of Occupational Therapy, for 23 years. The last 11 years, I have also started working with infants and their families, in the NICU.

It’s my own personal journey with illness that led me to the world of AIP. I found myself very ill after receiving a vaccine. I spent nearly a year trying to find answers through tests, doctor visits, etc. After I was very overwhelmed with my results from a food sensitivity test, I crossed paths with a dietician, who recommended I navigate my new findings with AIP.  It was when I was studying AIP that I became aware, that I was in fact suffering from autoimmune disease.
 I did most of my healing through diet and lifestyle changes with AIP.  Then when my healing hit a plateau, I started working with a functional medicine physician. I have been diagnosed with Raynaud’s disease, suspected celiac disease, and now I am aware that my Endometriosis, which I have had for over half of my life, is also autoimmune.  I have been searching for answering for most of my adult life, as to why I was always fatigued, never felt well, couldn’t lose weight, etc. Never in all these years, after seeing multiple physicians for my endometriosis, including procedures and surgeries, had any of my physicians ever mentioned diet or lifestyle to me. If I had known in my late teens what I now know, I am sure my story would be different. The silver lining is that I am healing and getting better every day.  AIP has given me my life back; I feel better now than I have in the last two decades. My healing journey was just too good not to share and this is why I became an AIP coach. My goal is to help others further their healing by tracking macros, increasing exercise tolerance, staying accountable with their just right diet, living life, etc. I have found renewed purpose and I vow to help others, earlier in their journey/diagnosis, feel better and not have to struggle for years, like I did. I look forward to working with you and helping you heal.

I am a beauty mentor. I take a holistic approach to skin beauty and health: through smart skin care, through proper nutrition, through nutraceutical support and a healthy lifestyle.
That is why I received the education of a cosmetologist, health-coach, specialist in functional integrative nutrition.
The autoimmune nutrition protocol for me is the path to a personalized diet that is right for each individual. By reducing the level of inflammation in the body, we heal, which means our skin is healed, and we look beautiful and young.
