AIP CERTIFIED COACH DIRECTORY
Kristen Ude, DC, CCN Doctor of Chiropractic, Certified Clinical Nutritionist
1600 W. 38th St, 412
Austin, Texas 78731
I have a lot of compassion for people with autoimmunity as I have spent 25 years working collaboratively with natural healthcare practitioners and allopathic doctors to manage issues which include Psoriatic Arthritis, Crohn’s and Hashimoto’s. Since my first Applied Kinesiology chiropractic visit in 1994 and the recommendation to eat “veggies with protein and fruit in between,” I have been on this path and helped many others along the way who were interested in taking matters into their own hands. If you are struggling with support, implementation, finding the right team, getting the right tests done, optimizing detox pathways and supplementation, please feel free to call me. I am also a certified coach in Conscious Uncoupling and Calling in the One, both NYT best selling relationship books by psychotherapist Katherine Woodward Thomas. I find that healing relationship trauma (and making good decisions going forward) is central to a healthy immune system. In 2018, I will also become certified by Terry Wahls, MD. I work in person or online and strive to make sessions affordable, knowing how hard it can be to work while sick.
Nick Mavrick Nutrition Therapist
egardless of the species, if you take away or significantly alter enough of an animal’s biological necessities, its health will suffer and its life will be shortened. Human beings are animals, too. Because of marketing, misinformation, and profit-driven food production principles, fewer and fewer people even know what decisions around diet and lifestyle are right and which are wrong. As a Certified Nutrition Therapy Practitioner (CNTP) and Master Nutrition Therapist (MNT), I have spent the last three years in clinical practice teaching people how to better adhere to a diet of nutrient-dense, whole, organic foods as a treatment tool for a wide range of diagnosed conditions as well as weight management and athletic training diets. I am now proud to also be AIP Certified and will be able to better assist clients with diagnosed autoimmune conditions to manage their diseases with dietary and lifestyle strategies. I received both my CNTP and MNT certifications from the Nutrition Therapy Institute in Denver, Colorado where I live with my wife and daughters. I am also a fitness enthusiast and I teach Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Danika Sicard, ND Naturopathic Doctor & Masters in Acupuncture
2179 Mer Bleue Rd.
Ottawa, Ontario K4A 3T9
Hi my name is Danika Sicard and I began my career at the University of Ottawa completing an undergraduate degree in Human Kinetics. This was the beginning of my particular interest in nutrition and healthy living. I began to incorporate concepts I had been taught into my daily life and experienced profound improvements in my general health, energy and state of mind. I decided then that my vocation lay in helping others to reach their health goals, prevent disease and to heal themselves. I continued my studies and completed the four-year graduate degree at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto. I augmented my professional credentials with a Master of Science in Acupuncture granted by the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut. It wasn’t until my second child came along that I really became interested in autoimmune diseases. My daughter was diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis and even after extensive education in naturopathic medicine and acupuncture, I felt I needed to know more and that’s when I fell upon the Autoimmune Protocol and the teachings of Dr. Sarah Ballantyne. It was my mission to learn everything I could about her condition and other autoimmune conditions. So, here I am today able to help people living with autoimmune disease by offering them the direction and tools they need to achieve their optimal state of health.
Marcia Cesario, RNC, CHN Registered Nutritional Counsellor, Certified Holistic Nutritionist
*Practices Virtually Worldwide
Hi, I am Marcia. I am a Registered Nutritional Counsellor, Certified Functional Nutritionist and Certified Bioindividual Nutrition Practitioner. I am also a proud Certified AutoImmune Paleo Coach and Nutrigenomics Counsellor.
Nutrition is my Passion and I am here to help you through your journey to a happier and healthier life.
Understanding how food and lifestyle affected my own health helped me overcome years of anxiety, brain fog, fatigue and digestive disturbances connected to gluten and dairy intolerances. I experienced the power of nutrient-dense, healing foods and used my education and experience to help my husband and my kids overcome their health challenges and reverse their Autoimmune diseases.
I believe that everybody can change their lives towards a healthful and happier life – and I can help you uncover your food sensitivities, understand your symptoms (and listen to your body), optimize your digestion and restore your mind and body’s health. I also believe that welcoming all that is positive in our lives can really help us in our journey.
I especially love working with kids, and have specialized in inflammatory skin diseases and food sensitivities/intolerances. I love how smart the AIP Protocol is, and in my practice I also like bringing in principles from other healing diets and strategically customize the dietary intervention for my clients.
I live a simple, healthful, happy and allergy-free life with my family surrounded by wholesome, nutrient-dense foods. We incorporate yoga and meditation in our daily lives and a lot of music from all over the world. My husband and my kids and are my inspiration for so many kid-approved AIP-friendly recipe creations.
I am passionate about the microbiome, genomics and autoimmune research, and I enjoy creating simple and nutritious recipes in my kitchen for my family.
Doris Romano, RN, RHN Registered Nurse, Registered Holistic Nutritionist
146 Redstone Road
Richmond Hill, Ontario L4S 1T9
Doris Romano is a Registered Nurse and Holistic Nutritionist.
After a year into her nursing career at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, she travelled to a remote island in northern Manitoba to work at a nursing station. Within a month of being there, she was determined to cure diabetes. But one look at the “fresh” produce that was flown in every week, and she knew she was going to have her work cut out for her. After two years, she returned home, feeling defeated and jaded by what she witnessed. But she was also feeling changed. Her experience up north opened her eyes to what true health meant and it impacted where she wanted to put her energy – she went back to school to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and has been fascinated by the power of nutrition ever since.
Soon after was the start of many years of debilitating symptoms and in 2018, she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s. She immediately immersed herself into the autoimmune protocol and was amazed at how quickly it helped. It was the first step in her journey to getting back to feeling like herself again and the results were so powerful that she went on to become an AIP Certified Coach in order to provide other women struggling with autoimmune disease the support they need to live their best life. She launched @myAIPkitchen with the goal of making AIP as simple as possible for women so they can focus on healing and living well with autoimmune disease.
In addition to her private consulting and coaching practice, Doris works in the pharmaceutical industry with patients on biologic therapy for long-term inflammatory conditions. You can follow Doris at @myAIPkitchen on Instagram.
