I am an Italian nutritional therapist based in Brussels, Belgium.

I became passionate about the healing power of food as a result of personal experience.
After the birth of my second child my already unstable health took a turn for the worse. It took me several years to get to my Hashimoto diagnosis and more to regain my health through diet and lifestyle changes. After experiencing food’s amazing power on my own body I embarked in nutritional therapy studies, to better understand the mechanisms behind this process and help others struggling with health issues. I as a sufferer myself I am especially committed to help people with autoimmune disease.

I believe in accompanying and guiding my clients on their own unique path, directing their efforts in the most beneficial way, always respecting their specific circumstances, personality and their levels of discipline and willpower. I think each one of us has a relationship with food that can be very deep and emotional, so when moving forward, I take into account the personal history and try to adjust the pace to the client’s specific needs and feelings.

As registered Naturopath & Herbalist and an Autoimmune Paleo Certified Coach, I support people on their journey to wellness and vitality.

In particular people living with:
– fibromyalgia
– autoimmune
– digestive
– stress
– burnout & fatigue issues.

I like to take a collaborative and individual approach when working with people. We are all unique. Something that works for one person may not work for another. This is why taking the time to listen to your story is an important part uncovering your “why” when it comes to getting to the heart of health issues.

I can work with you to develop a personalised Care Plan and provide support on your wellness journey with the goal of getting your energy back so that you can enjoy the things you love in life.

Like many practitioners, I became interested in natural medicine after having my own health issues. After years of “not feeling right” I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and subsequently other AI conditions.

I had worked for a number of years in a corporate management role and being a single mum, realised that stress was playing a significant part in my health.

It took a hefty dose of burn-out and AI flare-up to make me to sit up and take notice.

Being a Continuous Improvement focused person in my corporate career, I refocused these skills on myself and in the process developed a curiosity about how our bodies work, particularly how stress and nutrition have an impact on our health.

After graduating with a Bachelor in Natural Medicine, I now practice part time as a registered Naturopath and Medical Herbalist – supporting people on their own personal continuous improvement journeys. I would love to help you on yours.

I live and practice from my clinic in the beautiful Waitakere Ranges forest in Titirangi, Auckland, where I live with my husband and meet with clients in-person or virtually on line.

I de-stress by walking in the forest and the beach and I practice mindfulness and meditation.

After being diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease at an early age, I had many
flare ups and eventually surgery. I decided to be the master of my own
health destiny. I implemented the Autoimmune Protocol and I learned to
restore my health with diet and lifestyle changes. It’s my goal to show
individuals diagnosed with an autoimmune disease how to decrease their
symptoms by teaching them how to calm the immune system, heal
digestion, balance hormones, minimize pain and inflammation and
hopefully put their disease in remission.
If you are struggling with the signs and symptoms of an autoimmune
disease such as joint pain, irregular bowel movements, chronic fatigue,
itching and boils. I can teach you how to listen to your body and regain its
vitality naturally with diet and lifestyle changes. My 1-on-1 coaching will
maximize your quality of life so you can start living a life of vibrancy and
dial in on your individual needs.

Elizabeth Zenger, Ph.D., L.Ac Acupuncturist, Herbalist

811 NW 20th Ave., Ste. 203
Portland, Oregon 97209

I am a licensed acupuncturist in private practice in northwest Portland since 2001. I work with people who suffer from chronic illness, physical and emotional issues, and those seeking life-long wellness and core-level healing. My work focuses on body-mind healing, and I have a special interest in the connection of emotional trauma with physical illness, including autoimmune disorders.

I practice a style of acupuncture (Five Element) and a bodywork system (Zero Balancing) which treat body, mind and spirit. I am also a Board-certified Chinese herbalist. Many times, I have seen first-hand how important proper nutrition can be to getting the most benefit out of acupuncture and bodywork. Nutrition is also key for wellness and self-care.

Over my years of practice, I have expanded nutritional therapy because I know how effective it can be. I am now happy to offer coaching in the Autoimmune Paleo Protocol as an added benefit for my clients. While most people come to me for Five Element acupuncture or Zero Balancing, individual consultation sessions on nutrition and the AIP protocol can be arranged.

Amy Garifo, NTC Nutritional Therapy Consultant

Hello, I am Amy Garifo, a Certified Nutritional Therapy Consultant and AIP Certified Coach, living in the central valley of California. I discovered my passion for food and nutrition as I was going through my own personal health struggles with hypothyroidism for the past 29 years.

Now I use that knowledge to lead others out of their struggles, toward a return to health and vitality. I teach my clients how to incorporate nutrient dense, properly prepared, whole foods into their diets. In addition to that, I assist them in stress management, restorative sleep, healing movement and lifestyle adjustments. I believe you can live a life of optimal wellness.

I am here to support you and help you navigate through exactly which steps would lead you back to your vibrant self.

Hi – I’m Stacy and I’m here to guide you along the path to your best health. I’m a Certified Nutritional Therapy Consultant (NTC) through the Nutritional Therapy Association, AIP Certified Coach, and Functional Wellness Advisor. After being diagnosed with lupus and anti-phospholipid antibody syndrome in 2015, I was told repeatedly that dietary changes were irrelevant in the management of autoimmunity. My own experience couldn’t be more different, and led me to become a relentless proponent for the healing power of food. AIP has been instrumental in managing my own health, and I’ve been fortunate to see so many other autoimmune warriors have powerful and positive experiences of their own. Through my private practice, Viridis Wellness, LLC, I put my passion into action helping clients achieve their wellness goals through education, empowerment, accountability and positive, long-term, lifestyle changes. I specialize in wellness recovery with autoimmunity, connecting with nature, improving gut health, blood sugar regulation, holistic sports performance, autoimmune athletes and corporate wellness. My view is that wellness comes from addressing the whole person. I enjoy working virtually with long-distance clients as well as in-person with local clients, and offer a variety of group education programs. If you’re ready to take the first step towards your highest wellness and need a partner on your journey, let’s talk about where you want to go. Complimentary 15-minute discovery calls are available by request.
