Heidi Belden, PharmD Doctor of Pharmacy, AIP Certified Coach

Falmouth, Massachusetts

*Practices Virtually Worldwide

Hello! My name is Heidi Belden. I am a pharmacist with over 25 years of experience. My motivation for teaching clients and physicians about the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) comes from my own personal journey managing my own autoimmune diseases. About 12 years ago, I was diagnosed with Graves’ disease. Later came autoimmune GI issues, as well as osteoporosis, which led to spinal fracture. I had been to a long list of specialists over the years desperately trying to find answers for why I felt so poorly despite having what I thought was a fairly healthy lifestyle. I have personally felt the frustration of not getting answers from conventional providers on the root cause of my problems. It wasn’t until I found the Autoimmune Protocol that my health improved. It changed my life!! My goal is to help bridge the gap to mainstream medicine by educating both patients and the medical community about AIP. Hopefully soon, when an autoimmune diagnosis is made or suspected, diet and lifestyle education will be a part of the initial treatment plan. Please feel free to reach me at the email address listed above.

*Practices Virtually Worldwide

Hello – I’m Cassiopeia, a Holistic Health Educator and Balance Expert who helps career professionals and entrepreneurs increase their energy, clarity, and productivity, so they can grow their business and finally live the life of their dreams.

I struggled with illness for much of my life, but when an autoimmune disorder halted the growth of my business and led to my thyroid gland being surgically removed, I set out on a journey to discover the root of what was making me sick and unlock the secrets to health and wellness.

This journey led to extensive research, valuable life lessons, and to finally gaining a renewed sense of hope for myself and the world around me.

I became highly passionate about unpacking modern diets, helping others to find their inherent cooking talents, and demonstrating how easy it is to create healthy, gourmet style meals for less than the cost of most fast food.

After working through my illness and learning to show up fully in my business, my mission became to teach others how they too can take back their health and finally live the life of their dreams.

Sonia Sidle, FNTP Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner

Montgomery, TX, 77316

Hi, I am Sonia Sidle, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP), certified by the Nutritional Therapy Association, Functional Blood Chemistry Specialist (FBCS) and Restorative Wellness Practitioner (RWP).
My journey to wellness started many many years ago when I got diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. I had all kinds of symptoms like dry skin, weight gain, foggy brain and more and I naively believed that conventional medicine would be able to help me out. For years I lived with those symptoms while suffering from endometriosis at the same time, and with no end in sight I decided that enough was enough. With the help of an integrative doctor, I discovered the AutoImmune Protocol (AIP) and was feeling better within three months. Then our teenage son was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s as well; even though his pediatrician did not agree with the AIP approach at first, he finally agreed to put him on it. Same thing happened to our son, all of his symptoms disappeared.

Going through all of this as a family really opened my eyes to the fact that food is medicine and I decided that I could help so many others dealing with the same type of issues. With my experience as a practitioner and as someone who has dealt with autoimmune diseases, I can help guide my clients individually or as a family either in-person or virtually.

Originally from France and living today in Montgomery, TX, I’m offering my services (HTMA, functional blood chemistry and food allergy & gut testing) as well as my AIP Coaching in English or French.
