Hi, I’m Chrissy. I was diagnosed with my first autoimmune condition in 2016. A friend introduced me to the AIP diet and I was excited to try it. As I shared this with my doctor, he said, “what you eat doesn’t matter.” And that moment sparked the interest to learn about nutrition and how it impacts our health. In working with clients, I meet you where you are. I want to help you make changes that are long lasting. I look forward to being a part of your healing team. Along with my nutrition. training, I am also a certified yoga teacher. Healthy living is truly holistic; diet is important, but so is a balanced life. I will work with you on stress, sleep and relaxation along with nutrition.

Shaky hands, numb spots on my face, hands, and feet, muscle spasms, lack of coordination, lead legs, muscle aches and weakness, persistent UTI’s, spotty vision, wads of hair loss, heart palpitations, panic attacks, weight gain, and overwhelming fatigue…these were many of the mysterious things I had scribbled down on a list. The brain fog was so intense that the most reoccurring thought I remember having was “I need help.” It was becoming more and more difficult to string words together to form a coherent sentence. The simplest of tasks had become painfully challenging and it was a daily struggle to participate in my own life.

I eventually found my way to a doctor who listened and helped me discover how my array of symptoms were related. I was soon diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. This diagnosis became the catalyst for a diet and lifestyle change that upon research brought me to the AIP. Following this protocol not only provided me relief from my symptoms, but ultimately helped me get my life back.

I have come to both believe in and have experienced the healing power of food as medicine. As a certified coach it is my passion to partner with clients who are struggling with inflammatory related issues, who feel tired, stuck, lost, or uncertain of how to move forward. We will work together to discover and identify action steps you can take in a space that allows for continual evaluation of what is and isn’t working best for YOU. My intention is to offer the unconditional support, ongoing accountability, and unhurried time needed to focus and reflect in order to generate sustainable changes as you journey along towards your best healthiest self. I have an office in Orange County CA or can meet with you virtually. A first time consultation is FREE, I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story.

Many years passed and many visits to doctors (for the migraines and joint pains, I suffered), before being diagnosed with Sjögren’s syndrome and rheumatism. Having a name for what I was living for, gave me peace of mind and encouraged me to start my own journey of my health recovery (initially intuitively), without medicine.

I started changing my diet, changed running for yoga (I became a yoga teacher) and meditation. I was certified as a Health Coach at the IIN in New York. This path I walked, opened my eyes and showed me that I was able to take responsibility for my own health, making changes to my diet and my lifestyle. ¡It was possible!

Now, with all the love and intent to support you since you’re probably living what I lived years ago, I decided to become AIP Certified Coach. I will guide you to become the leader of your own path to your well-being, vitality and energy to live, despite an autoimmune disease.

Stephanie Lynch MEd, AIP Coach, Certified Personal Trainer and Nutrition Coach

Greetings from Nova Scotia, Canada! My name is Stephanie Lynch, owner of Harmonized Health Halifax. I have been an educator for over 25 years and a passion for health and wellness led me to also pursue certifications as a Personal Trainer, Corrective Exercise Specialist and Nutrition Coach. I believe wholeheartedly that health is not a look, an age, a size, or a number. I am passionate about helping clients find joyful ways to appreciate, move and fuel their unique, amazing bodies.

My own struggles with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis led me to the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) about 5 years ago. The incredible success I experienced, and continue to experience, on the Autoimmune Protocol inspired me to become a certified Autoimmune Protocol Coach. My goal is to support as many people as I can who are coping with autoimmune illness, or suspected autoimmune illness, by coaching them through all facets of AIP.

My educational specialization is in the area of differentiation; the ability to customize one’s learning experiences. This is something I carry into my personal training, AIP and Nutrition Coaching as well as I create programs specific to each individual with whom I have the privilege to support. I do not believe that one size fits all; we all come to this journey with unique strengths and challenges. I will work diligently beside you, supporting you on YOUR healing journey, modifying as necessary, in ways that best fit your unique set of circumstances. With an extensive teaching background, my goal is to listen, support, educate and empower you with the knowledge and strategies that will help you to minimize your Autoimmune symptoms and maximize your health.
