Shari Hussenbocus, MS, RD Integrative & Functional Medicine Dietitian Integrative & Functional Medicine Dietitian
*Practices virtually worldwide
Are you willing to be more than just ‘meh, fiiiiine…’?
Are you prepared to dig deeper into your health issues? I mean really understand the nuts-and-bolts of YOUR health ‘knots’?
Are you ready to step outside your comfort zone to find out what works (and what doesn’t) for you so as to untie these knots?
Are you okay with the idea of working on improving your current behavioral and lifestyle habits?
Do you wish to become the master of your own health? To finally be at home in your body?
If you’re ready to build an energetic, healthy future that will tilt your world on its axis, let’s connect!
Hi, I’m Shari. I’m a functional RD (living on the tiny island of Mauritius) for people who want results. And are ready to do the heavy-lifting. (Don’t worry; I keep it real – if you have a mortgage, I won’t ask you to quit your job and become a full-time knitter of tiny pirate scarves for hamsters.)
— What kind of RD am I —
I was trained as a conventional RD. Life events (read PCOS and juvenile arthritis + lots of autoimmune issues in the family) encouraged me to relearn everything. You see, implementing conventional nutrition guidelines was making me sicker. And they weren’t helping my patients.
Over the years, I have specialized in nutrition for PCOS and digestive health.
— What to expect if you work with me —
Coaching with me goes deep – we won’t just look at what you eat or how you sleep. We’ll also explore why you eat the way you do, what you’re really hungry for. We’ll get underneath the excuses to unleash the stuff that is really holding you back from becoming a healthier, happier version of yourself.
And yes, I’ll keep you accountable.
Because if you say you’re going to do something, I’ll totally check in to see if you did!
This way, with my 100% support, YOU will craft your very own health guidelines.

Michelle Dowker, MSc, ND Naturopathic Doctor
400 Rue Scott O
Alma, Quebec G8B1R2
*Practices virtually worldwide
I am a Naturopathic Doctor turned Emotional Transformation Facilitator and founder of the The Remedy Within: an exclusive and powerful healing approach for women with chronic illness to release what’s holding you back and awaken your inner healer within so you can soar.
I work with women who have chronic illness like autoimmunity and endometriosis who’ve tried AIP and even stricter diets, all the supplements, and even therapy, and know that they’re not getting the full results they’d expected.
While diet and lifestyle are paramount, underlying unhealed emotional roots can keep us from achieving all the results we desire.
Through nervous system regulation, Social Unconditioning, inner narrative healing, and compassionate self-love, women who’ve tried the strictest of protocols to no avail have been able to break through and achieve not just improved physical symptoms, but healthier relationships, and a sense of joy and purpose like never before.
This revolutionary work to awaken your healer within helps you achieve next-level results from AIP, and allows for more successful food reintroductions. These results are not temporary. When you make the inner emotional shifts and achieve inner emotional healing, these benefits last a lifetime.
Len Schulze Nutritional Therapy Practitioner; Medical Qigong Therapist
San Diego, California
*Also Practices Virtually Worldwide
Hi! I’m Len Schulze. I’m a holistic nutritionist, and it’s my passion to help others regain health and well-being naturally by balancing body, mind, and spirit. For optimal health, all three must be in balance.
I believe that each person is a bio-individual. This means we each have specific nutrient needs based on genetics, past and current health challenges, childhood and current food intake, stress level, age, pharmacological intake, and activity level. There is no one-size-fits-all health and wellness regime. Each of us has lived a unique life so each one of us has varying health and wellness needs.
To guide my clients back to balance, I focus on:
Functional testing (gut dysbiosis, food sensitivities, hormones, adrenal)
Nutritious food to balance blood sugar
Movement and joyful activities
Positive thoughts and gratitude
Internal energy cultivation – Qigong
Through my own healing journey, I discovered a wonderful practice called Qigong. This ancient practice is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It involves movement and visualizations that calm, cultivate, and rebalance your internal life-force energy. I incorporate this work with clients, as appropriate.
My practice primarily focuses on restoring optimal digestion and re-balancing gut dysbiosis, autoimmune conditions, and preparing for pregnancy (fertility preparation).

Dawn Share Acupuncture Physician, NTP
316 Dunlawton Ave
Port Orange, Florida 32127
I have been practicing in the Daytona Beach area for over ten years, as a Florida board licensed Acupuncture Physician trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine. I have done advance training with the Institute for Functional Medicine. My passion lies in the integration of these two great medicines, as both are based on the premise of identifying root cause of disease and using food as medicine. I recently became a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and am proud to add this certification to my holistic approach. This program has cemented my belief in the power of properly prepared, nutrient dense whole food. I specialize in treating autoimmune diseases, gastrointestinal disorders, thyroid dysfunction, adrenal and blood sugar dysregulation. I am successful helping patients and guiding them to achieve optimum health and wellness using a patient-centered approach, working together through education and goal setting. I believe that sharing my knowledge with my patients will empower them to live healthier, happier, more balanced lives–both emotionally and physically. My goal every day is to practice what I preach ( I admit some days I fall short). As a mother of 5 (almost all grown) children, I have experienced first hand the power of lifestyle and nutrition on health. I love to spend time cooking nourishing foods, being active in nature, and reading health blogs/books!
