Lindsay Peter-Contesse, MS, RD, LDN Registered Dietitian, Licensed Dietitian/Nutritionist and AIP Certified Coach

Nashville, Tennessee

Hi, I am Lindsay Peter Contesse, dietitian and owner of Nashville Autoimmune Nutrition, LLC. I specialize in autoimmune diseases and gut issues. Autoimmune diseases are complex and present differently for each person. From sorting through recommendations of food choices, supplements, medications, or even being told there is no solution, or “It’s all in your head,”—it can be completely overwhelming. I focus on the whole person in approaching these issues with clients by looking for the root cause of symptoms, and addressing all aspects of the client’s lifestyle, including nutrition, stress, sleep, movement, and more.

Managing chronic illness can be exhausting, confusing, and lonely. The journey to healing is not always a straight line. I provide a comprehensive assessment and ongoing support to make adjustments in your journey to healing. Follow up appointments allow for discussing progress, adjusting nutritional & lifestyle plans, and creating manageable next steps.

Each client is different. Some common goals include: symptom relief, healing, and regaining a better quality of life. In working together and setting goals, we ensure they are realistic, achievable, and will work within your lifestyle. If anything above resonates with you, I would love to hear your story.

My learning journey goes hand-in-hand with my healing journey. First I experienced – by coincidence, I was born skeptical – the wonderful and intrinsically logic world of natural healing, combining body and soul symptoms to the individual key to health, and I started to learn how to use that key. Though, I could not solve all of my ailments until, in 2019, I discovered one of the most powerful tools ever – the Autoimmune Protocol. I was so overwhelmed by the results that I decided to become a Certified Coach.
My wish is to take you by the hand and teach and help you practically, theoretically and motivationally through your personal healing path, using mainly the AIP as an instrument which I will teach you to play, and my knowledge as a Naturopathist to make sure that you are performing the right song.
All my life I have been a food enthusiast, and the AIP made me even more creative. I am looking forward to help you with my online praxis.
I live in Norway, but I’m half Swiss and half Italian, and I speak fluently Italian, German, French, English and Norwegian.

If you’re struggling with figuring out how to eat and live healthy when you’re already so exhausted you feel like you can’t add one more thing to your plate, I can help you. This is exactly what I teach my clients – how to overcome fatigue, brain fog, and joint pain using lifestyle hacks and SIMPLE recipes that even their kids (and husbands) will eat!

Why am I so passionate about helping women with autoimmune conditions?
Because I’m one of you! I know how scary it is to suffer from pain that you can’t explain, how frustrating it is to have tests come back “normal” even though you know something is wrong, and to not know where to turn and or have anyone who truly understands. Even though multiple doctors told me I was “fine,” I knew that something was really wrong inside.

Luckily, my chiropractor recommended the Autoimmune Protocol, and within weeks I had more energy than I had experienced in years, my headaches were gone, my pain had subsided, and I was finally losing weight again! I wanted to shout what I had learned from the rooftops so that women everywhere knew that there was a way to take control of their own health and start to feel like themselves again through diet and lifestyle.

This inspired me to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner to support other women suffering with autoimmune symptoms. As a result of working with me personally, my clients have been able to go from struggling just to make it through the day to being able to excel at work and enjoy time with their families. They are sleeping better and are feeling less stress and anxiety, and finally feel like themselves again.

If you don’t want being healthy to feel like such a struggle anymore, I’d love to chat with you and share some of the patterns I see that could be holding you back from optimal health. If you’re ready for more energy and clarity – without all the struggle – email me at [email protected].

Hello, I am Karine, I am a Naturopath and Ancestral Nutrition Coach. My goal is to help people with auto-immune conditions and digestive disorders gain faith in their body’s healing capacity.

I was myself diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (and suffered from irritable bowel syndrome prior to that). This led me to begin my very own journey through the realms of natural health. I couldn’t stay passive, I needed to educate myself and try things out. I soon realized that simple diet and lifestyle changes can make a big difference.

I have a holistic, functional and psychosomatic approach, that is I try to look for the profound causes of a given condition, be it physical, psychological or emotional. One of my tools is what I call “ancestral nutrition”, I coach my clients to come back to an ancestral diet: real nutrient dense food that’s adapted to our genetic heritage.

Let’s get started on your journey to a healthier you!

With a background in holistic nutrition and physiology, my big-picture goal is to help clients navigate today’s extensive amount of information on food and nutrition so that they are better equipped to make decisions impacting their health. My own decade-long journey with vitiligo and digestive disorders has taught me that there is no one-size-fits-all, fixed approach to achieving wellness. It is important to me to work with my clients to create an adaptable program tailored to their specific goals – one that is sustainable and allows their body to thrive at its best. Areas of expertise include: autoimmune management, digestive health, food sensitivities, and weight management, with a focus on reducing chronic inflammation.

Hello, I am a Registered Nutritional Therapist, specialising in supporting Type 1 Diabetics regain their health and balance their blood sugar levels using nutrition and lifestyle medicine. I use the functional medicine model to take a full case history of your health, to really dig deep to identify imbalances and their root cause. After being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 2002 I spent many years dutifully following the advice of my endocrinologists and dieticians, eating carbs with every meal and then struggling to keep my blood sugars under control. I still suffered from chronic acne, tiredness, bloating after meals, tight joints and my energy levels were depleted. It was only when background retinopathy was detected at a routine eye appointment that I had the wake-up call I needed and realised I would have to take full responsibility for my health if I was to feel better. Without realising it back then, I began an AIP style diet, eliminating all inflammatory foods and including loads of healthy fats, grass fed meats, vegetables and salads. My energy returned, and I started to feel better, and was able to control my blood sugar levels like I’d never been able to before. A year later at my eye test all signs of the background retinopathy were gone.

That was when I had my lightbulb moment and I decided to leave a career in IT to become a Nutritional Therapist. I have set up Autoimmune Clinic, a collaboration of practitioners who not only have a comprehensive understanding of autoimmunity, but have personal experience of it themselves. As well as seeing clients on a 1:1 basis, we run an online 6-week group coaching AIP Programme, where anyone with an autoimmune condition can be supported in implementing the AIP protocol. Our mission is to empower people with autoimmune conditions to take control of their health and help them make long-term lifestyle changes in order to live well with their condition.
