*Practices Virtually Worldwide

Hey there!
I’m Wanda.

Has autoimmune disease taken over your life? I’m here to help!

I am an entrepreneur, mum, wellness expert, and creator of the “Ignite Wellness Journal”. Think of this journal as a tool that tracks your autoimmune symptoms, diet, and lifestyle, so you can better communicate with your health care team (proof that “it’s not all in your head”)! It also teaches you how to implement simple daily steps to improve your whole life.

I became a Registered Health Coach and Holistic Health Practitioner in 2013 after decades of wrestling with mystery illnesses. Finally in 2018, using the system that became the Ignite Wellness Journal, I was diagnosed with Lupus which led to AIP and getting my AIP Coaches Certification.

Working with me, means you don’t have to be alone on your journey. You’ll have someone who understands and cares, someone who can help create a support system and keep you accountable to your goals.

I am obsessed with the science of nutrition and love to create healthy family-friendly recipes. When I am not cooking or coaching, I spend my time being my daughters’ part time pancreas, an autoimmune disease destroyed her cells that make insulin, aka Type 1 Diabetes-mum. I even have an autoimmune dog, but that’s a whole ‘nother story…

Together let’s take back control of your health, fight disease and reclaim your spark. Together let’s ‘Ignite Wellness’!

*Also Practices Virtually Worldwide

I am an Institute for Integrative Nutrition Certified Health Coach and a Certified Autoimmune Protocol Coach who is unbelievably passionate about health and wellness.
My personal health journey is what led me to the exciting field of health coaching. For years I suffered the effects of ovarian cysts, endometriosis, migraines, Hoshimoto’s thyroiditis, hypothyroidism, Epstein Barr virus, Lyme disease, adrenal fatigue and depression. When traditional methods of treatment only alleviated some of my symptoms, I began searching for answers to the causes of my health condition and am grateful for the transformation it has made and continues to make in my health journey. I understand the struggles that come with an autoimmune diagnosis and how AIP can be a game changer! Having personally benefited from Autoimmune Protocol in addition to other lifestyle changes, I am excited to combine my knowledge and skills to help others embrace this approach that allows you to enjoy, experiment and experience the boundaries of wellness while living with an autoimmune disease.

Briana Ramsey Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner

Los Angeles, California
*Also Practices Virtually Worldwide

Hello! My name is Briana, and I am a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. The complaint I hear the most from my clients is, “I just don’t feel like myself anymore.” I completely understand, because I felt the same way at the beginning of my healing journey. I would love to take your hand, and walk with you on your journey back to yourself. Let’s talk.

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.

Mary Wilson Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner

Seattle Washington
*Also Practices Virtually Worldwide

Hello! I’m Mary a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition. Like you or someone you know, I’m on the autoimmune disease spectrum. I co-founded Evergreen Wellness Academy with another Functional Nutritionist who is also on the autoimmune spectrum, and our experiences are what have driven us to create Evergreen Wellness Academy for you. Our goal is to provide you with the care and support that we, like so many autoimmune warriors, never received but absolutely deserve.

The power of diet and lifestyle first caught my attention when I was informed by my doctor that I was running full speed toward pre-diabetes. Unfortunately, I did not get much guidance from my doctor and ended up having to figure out how to help myself.

In the process of learning how to balance my blood sugar, my thyroid antibodies started to come down. Symptoms related to my under-performing thyroid also began to diminish. The power of nutrient-dense food and supportive lifestyle techniques was undeniable. I knew I had to spread the word far and wide about my experience in the hopes that it would inspire others to consider doing the same for themselves.

The experience of having to educate and advocate for myself is what led me to focus on supporting women challenged by autoimmune disease. I don’t want anyone to experience the loneliness, frustration, and overwhelm that I and too many others have experienced. I’m here for you, let’s work together!

Deena Mistry Accredited Journey Practitioner and AIP Coach

*also practices virtually worldwide

I am an accredited Journey Practitioner and an AIP Coach from Sydney, Australia. My passion, to improve one’s health holistically, began in my 30’s.

I was in a stressful corporate role, working long hours, sleep deprived, eating mostly fast foods and partying a lot as young professionals do. I thought I was living my best life…until my health began deteriorating and brain fog and anxiety started affecting my performance and confidence. My body was crying for help! I was diagnosed with several autoimmune diseases that affected my joints, digestive system(Coeliac Disease), skin(Lichen Planus) and hair(Alopecia Areata). This was a wake-up call! I could either take immune suppressing drugs OR empower myself and make positive changes to improve my health. My gut feeling was to honour myself and listen to my body.

My quest led me to understand that the health of our cells (the building blocks of our bodies) is affected by our emotional and mental wellbeing; nutrition; lifestyle and the environment. The philosophy of cellular healing was introduced to me by Brandon Bays ( who pioneered “The Journey Method” – a profound, introspective, guided meditation, that taps into the body’s innate wisdom, and addresses the emotional distresses of life’s challenges that could be compromising our health.

As a corporate professional I was ambitious and in control of my outcomes. I was hard on myself and my own worst critic. Failure and mistakes were unacceptable. Having the autoimmune diagnosis made me feel like I had no control. The Journey meditations enabled me to address my fears, anxieties, stresses and frustrations. By tapping into my inner resources of strength, love, compassion, self-acceptance and forgiveness for myself and others, I was able to change my perspectives and priorities in life and support my body to recover.

My journey of recovery inspired me to help others who are dealing with autoimmune challenges. With empathy, emotional support, compassion and self-honouring, it is possible to regain one’s health and vitality.

*Also Practices Virtually Worldwide

I strongly believe that education is what our generation needs in order to improve our health. Our grandparents knew how to take care of themselves using food, herbs, community- and its our turn to bring that wisdom back.

I have 10+ years working in conventional medicine, and understand the frustrations of getting to the root cause of symptoms before they become a diagnosis.

In our virtual visits together, don’t expect that we will be chasing symptoms. What we need to do is find the root cause of your struggles. This can take time, patience and care. This take a lot of digging- in forms of questionnaires, bloodwork, and a lot of the times we will need to bring in supplements to support and detox. Education is my focus, your understanding is my goal.
