El Dorado Hills, California
Hi! My name is Geri Baxter and I’m Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition (Candidate) as well as an AIP Certified Coach.
My passion for functional medicine began while trying to navigate my own health issues. Having a strong family history of autoimmunity sparked my curiosity in learning how to manage disease through a balanced life and optimal nutrition.
With a focus on autoimmunity, digestive problems, pregnancy, and weight management, I believe in bioindividuality and take a holistic approach to identify root causes. By working with the client, we tailor a plan designed specifically for them to create lasting, lifestyle changes.

“Food is medicine”. What else is there to say?
I am a certified health and wellness coach and AIP certified coach who is extremely dedicated to helping others find a healthier and sustainable way of life. I work passionately alongside you to investigate what works for your individual and unique body type.
I was born and raised in a small town in Ohio. I currently live in Charlotte, NC but will always be a Midwest girl at heart. Growing up in a small town, it was bologna sandwiches, mac n cheese and maybe some broccoli but with cheese whiz of course.
I had a great childhood but I feel like a lot of things in life could have been different for mine and my families lives. I lived a life of weight fluctuation and extreme anxiety. All of which I was able to get under control once I learned more about my body and the nutrients I was providing it. Or not providing it.
My random desire for a green juice a day and sitting back watching family members fall to various illnesses, gradually turned into hours of research and obsession over health and living a more fulfilled life.
All things happen for a reason and it takes experiences to learn and grow in order to get to where we are now. So we have to be grateful to be living in a time where we are learning so much and unveiling the truth and I’m so excited to share this experience with others and to help them see and feel what their bodies are capable of.
Lisa Ciola Nutritional Therapy Practitioner
Hello, my name is Lisa Ciola.
I am a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, a Certified Autoimmune Coach, and a retired RN.
My husband is retired Air Force and we have 6 children, ages 25-13. Homeschooling has been our way of life for 20 years.
My passion is to teach that nutrient dense foods can heal our bodies and simply help us live our most fruitful and abundant life. It’s taken about 5 years to transition my family to eating really clean…teenagers are hard to convince. 🙂
I’ve had 3 children become collegiate athletes, and 3 more boys who are high school athletes. Feeding them properly to help them prevent injury, increase endurance, and recover quicker has been our focus for the past 5 years.
Our Good Lord has been the center of my practice in that all teaching, healing and love come from Him.
Elitsa Dineva-Sevenich Holistic Nutritionist
*Also Practices Virtually Worldwide
Hi! My name is Eli and I am a Holistic Nutritionist, a CSNN graduate with a Diploma in Natural Nutrition.
I learned the value of a healthy lifestyle the hard way: Up until my late teenage years I’ve always been overweight which made me feel very insecure. It was a happy coincidence that I started learning about nutrition. When I tried a more holistic approach and changed my relationship with food, my appearance and well-being also started to change. Gradually, I learned to love natural, good quality food, became physically active, and started to really appreciate my health. Inspired by my own transformation, it became my dream to be able to help others as well. Thanks to the CSNN program, I gained specific knowledge about the bits and pieces I had stumbled upon during my own journey with food lifestyle habits, and of all the ways the right diet helps you control your health challenges and even prevent disease. As a certified holistic nutritionist, I’d love to help you and guide you throughout your own journey towards a healthier life with enhanced well-being.

Hi, I’m Kim, a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner, Certified Holistic Nutritionist, Certified Holistic Health Coach, Certified Health & Wellness Coach, AIP Certified Coach, and the founder of Salt n’ Sauna Wellness (voted Best of N. Atlanta for “Best Holistic/Alternative Medicine” & “Best Med Spa”). I’m here because everything went wrong, and had to figure out how to make everything right again, probably much like yourself. I specialize in autoimmunity, nutrition, and empowerment, along with practical, real-life approaches that it takes to be successful in any healing journey. I understand practical, as it’s the foundation of my daily life. I’ve been a single mom for 18 yrs to 3 amazing kids, my oldest is special needs, and I’ve always worked full-time.
My journey with Grave’s Disease & Celiac Disease helped me discover my immense passion to heal! My journey began by taking the medication for Grave’s Disease. A month later I was fighting for my life in the ICU, where I spent 13 days, 10 of those near death. The medication for my Grave’s Disease was killing me, literally. I was one of only a handful of people around the world to survive a case so severe. Upon leaving the hospital, my doctor gave me two choices, have my thyroid removed or die. I opted to follow my own path, and began the process of modifying my diet and lifestyle, detoxing my body, and anything needed to regain my health.
You can be healthy & vibrant living with chronic disease. It is possible! As a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner, I use a holistic, functional approach to healing, troubleshooting, and discovering root issues. I’m here to help empower you to take back your health, learn to use practical approaches to modify your diet and lifestyle (most importantly sleep, stress, toxic relationships, exercise, & daily life), advocate for yourself, and empower you. There is power in learning to heal your body, and living a vibrant life with chronic illness…take yours back!

Emily Boudwin Primal Health Coach
1111 S Orchard St
Boise, Idaho 83705
I was diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis August 2014. I was sporadically following a paleo lifestyle since 11/2012. Meaning that the 80/20 rule became an obsession with adding gluten treats that I missed, which led to a large increase in carbs and gluten treats. I have figured out that the 80/20 rule does not work with me. When I was diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis I immediately purchased Sarah Ballantyne’s book The Paleo Approach. I read it over a weeks period of time and immediately started the AIP protocol. Within a week of starting the protocol my liver enzymes started dropping. My IBS-C, that I was diagnosed with when I was 18, symptoms disappeared. I did not realize that I was experiencing symptoms all of the time with periodic flares. In November 2014, 3 months later, I started my food reintroduction’s. The primary foods I reacted to were eggs that caused severe and prolonged stomachache, nightshades that caused IBS symptoms and dairy causing tiredness and nasal issues. I own and operate my own medical massage business, since 2011. Adding a whole body approach has made a difference in my clients lives. May 2017 I earned my Primal Health Coach certification. Since January 2015 I have been learning and working on becoming a Restorative Exercise Specialist through Katy Bowman. Very shortly I will be adding AIP Health Coaching locally here in Boise, Idaho where I live.
