Amelia Brown Occupational Therapist, OTD, OTR/L, Certified Functional Nutrition Coach

Nashville, Tennessee
*Also Practices Virtually Worldwide

Hi, I’m Amelia, a full-time Occupational Therapist in Nashville, TN. With four years of clinical practice in acute care , I’ve treated patients with all kinds of conditions—heart disease, strokes, autoimmune disease, neurological disorders—you name it. Everyday, I see the suffering that comes with these conditions, and with one in two Americans having a chronic disease (and one in four having several), I continue to ask why. Yes, genetics and other non-modifiable factors play a significant part, but there’s also incontrovertible evidence pointing directly to modern lifestyle and diet. This realization, as well as my own experience navigating Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, has inspired me to complete additional training in order to become a health coach myself.

My mission is to empower others to make informed, thoughtful choices when it comes to their health in order to improve quality of life. I help clients with autoimmune disease address the necessary lifestyle changes to decrease internal inflammation. I provide education on meal planning, resources and recipes that aid in restoring gut health. I work with clients to identify food sensitivities and triggers while simultaneously incorporating nutrient-dense, healing foods. I also focus on strategies to:

-Manage stress and mindset
-Improve sleep quality and hygiene
-Promote regular and intentional exercise
-Reduce environmental toxin exposure
-Effectively communicate with medical practitioners

Whether you are impacted by chronic autoimmune disease or just want to live well, I would love to connect. Find me at

I’m Andrea Lane, a board certified acupuncturist and herbalist. I practice a gentle, Japanese style of acupuncture that helps to guide the body back to good health. My approach to my patients’ wellness is holistic, involving dietary, exercise, and lifestyle consultation in addition to East Asian medicine.

After being diagnosed with interstitial cystitis in my early 20s, I became passionate about pursuing better health through changes to my diet and lifestyle. I encountered AIP along my journey, and am amazed at how much better I feel as a result. I know firsthand how difficult it can be to transition to AIP and navigate the diet that suits your health best, and I want to be able to support others through that process. I am happy to work with patients on their AIP diet either in the context of an acupuncture treatment protocol, or to do only nutritional and dietary consultation.

When I’m not with patients, I also work as a Pilates and GYROTONIC® trainer. In my free time, I love to cook, read my way out from a small mountain of books, and cater to my cats’ every whim.

Hello! My name is Alina Zakirova. I am an Integrative and Functional Nutritionist and AIP Certified Coach.
In 2016 I was diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). From 2017 I am on the AIP, which has become the beginning of a journey towards a healthy life.
I have changed a lot for the time I had discovered the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP).
A lifestyle, nutrition, healthy sleep, working with stress, physical activity and support of closed ones have played an important role.
I have graduated from the Institute of Functional and Integrative Dietetics and now I help people from all over the world to handle nutrition and a lifestyle.
I share my experience on a YouTube channel and show recipes.
The AIP is a real complex, which helps many people with autoimmune diseases to make their lives better.
I will be glad to help you feel better and get on the path to recovery.
I wish everyone to have healthy adrenal glands!

Hello! I’m Judit!

For many years I struggled with rheumatoid arthritis and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Then the trajectory of my life changed dramatically when I implemented lifestyle and dietary changes. The arthritis is completely gone, and I can manage my thyroid function very well without symptoms.

I am a Health & Life Coach, and an AIP Certified Coach, as well as a certified teacher in many styles of yoga and Pilates.

I am passionate and enthusiastic about sharing the knowledge I’ve gained through my own healing experience. I help women who are ready to take charge of their lives to minimize or even eliminate the symptoms of their autoimmune disease.

I will provide concrete strategies and resources to incorporate into your daily life that work best to help you eliminate fatigue, lack of focus, mood swings, anxiety, bowel problems, muscle soreness, migraine headaches, joint pains, skin problems, insomnia, weight gain and more.

Your 90-day personalized healing protocol includes:

o implementing a simple elimination diet that removes inflammatory foods
o introducing healing superfoods in a slow or more dynamic way
o helping you understand the science behind these steps
o adopting lifestyle modifications: sleep, stress management, movement, relationships
o guidance for shopping, cooking, weekly meal planning
o providing you with a gentle yoga program designed specifically for those with autoimmune disease
o helping you to attain a stronger, more confident mindset
o helping you to overcome obstacles and manage your disease
o providing you with different tools and materials

I will be your supportive mentor to help you reach your wellness goals and find the foods and lifestyle practices that work best for you.

The first step is to reach out to me for a 15-minute free consultation to see how I can help you on your journey.

Laura Morrow Nutritional Therapy Practitioner

Vienna, Virginia
*Practices Virtually Worldwide

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].

*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.
