Katie Burford, NTP Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and AIP Certified Coach

*Practices Virtually Worldwide

Hello, I am Katie Burford, a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) certified through the Nutritional Therapy Association, and an AIP Certified Coach.

I endured over 15 years of experiencing mysterious symptoms, some of which were completely debilitating, before I finally received a diagnosis of Mixed Connective Tissue Disease in 2016. I have multiple autoimmune diseases which consist of Celiac, Dermatomyositis, Lupus, and Raynaud’s. At my worst, I was so crippled by my symptoms, both mentally and physically, I had to resign from my job. I spent my days rotating from lying on my couch to napping in bed; a stark contrast from the collegiate athlete and marathon runner I once identified as.

I tried the pharmaceutical route, but the side effects were just as debilitating as my actual symptoms. I began to research alternative ways to live well with autoimmune disease, which led me to AIP. I was desperate to find relief, and for the first time in years I felt hopeful and inspired to take charge of my health. In January of 2017, I began AIP and experienced improvements I never thought possible.

I am living and thriving despite having 5 autoimmune diseases, and it’s my mission to help you do the same.

I desire to provide a source of hope and support for anyone who struggles with autoimmunity. Most importantly, I want you to know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I know first-hand how isolating living with autoimmune conditions can be and how difficult navigating the medical world is. I am here for you! I will help you build a collaborative medical team to ensure you receive the best of both conventional medicine and alternative approaches.

I will empower you with the knowledge and skills necessary to help you make critical dietary and lifestyle changes that will lead you back towards health.

For the past 35 years I have been involved in holistic health, food and fitness. I have always been involved in fitness from Callanetics (Pilates) to weight training, yoga, walking, biking and kickboxing.

As a foodie, the kitchen is my playground. I am always looking at food as a solution to healing and connecting with family and friends, verses just something to fill my belly and it must taste OMG Delicious!

In 2016, I started experiencing extreme fatigue, hot flashes, my joints and feet hurt so bad it was difficult to walk (which really hampered my training and lifestyle), the scale increased 10, 20, then 30 pounds in a 2 year period.

Finally, in 2018, I went to the doctor. I had chalked it all up to being perimenopausal (I was 51 and having sporadic cycles). I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. FINALLY! An answer! I was so relieved, until I started researching it.

Enter the deep dive! I immersed myself in education. I found statistics that blew my mind regarding autoimmune conditions (Apx 20% of the population or one in five people, suffer from autoimmune diseases. Women are more likely than men to be affected) and many of these conditions are just regarded as a “manageable disease” or “aging related condition”.

I wanted to know how to pluck the root to better manage the symptoms while easing the immune system attack. Through nutrient dense foods, enjoying my life with self-care, proper sleep and supplementation, I had a course correction on my path to living with an Autoimmune disease.

Through my studies I am now an AIP Certified Coach, Certified Functional Health Coach, NASM Personal Trainer and a PN1 (Precision Nutrition) Coach, and Founder of A Path to Living.

My passion for serving and helping others as they gain control of their health allows me to open doors for them to live an optimal life. It is my drive and promise to each of my clients… I believe in you, I understand you, I have been where you are … I am here for you.

Jackson Penfield-Cyr is a Licensed Bodyworker, owner of Integrity Yoga LLC, and the founder of Yoga Sparśa Integration Therapy, located in the Upper Valley region of New Hampshire and Vermont.

In private sessions, my job is to invite you into a new relationship with your body.

My own experience with chronic pain and autoimmune disease changed me and my sense of self. It was, ultimately, a gift – in that I received an education in the science of reintegration, the practice of resilience, and the meaning of integrity.

Today, I practice neurobiology-based bodywork. This means my approach to manual and movement therapy is based upon principles of neurophysiology and human behavioral biology, not traditional techniques based on unscientific explanatory models.

Ultimately, my work aims to provide you with an educational experience in embodiment, to empower your practice of personal responsibility in health care.

Please visit or contact me for more information.

Thank you for your consideration.

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.

Hi! My name is Noelle Creamer and I’m an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, AIP Certified Coach and founder of Wellness with Noelle.

I’m here to help guide you along the path to your best self!

My passion for health began back in August 2018 when I found myself diagnosed with a life threatening autoimmune disease called Wegener’s Granulomatosis. I was overwhelmed, confused, and scared. It was a huge wake up call for me and it didn’t take long before I had my first “ah ha” moment.

I realized there was tremendous power in things I could control in order to heal my body- things like gut-restoration, clean living, lifestyle changes, nutritional changes, making peace with what was on my plate, and developing a healthy relationship with food and my body. I started making shifts in my life right away, which contributed to putting my disease into remission within two short months.

I was blown away by the rapid transformation I saw in my body with simple nutritional and lifestyle changes. I immediately developed a heartfelt desire to help others succeed in their own health journey. I can’t wait to meet you!

As a functional nutritionist, I partner with my clients to identify foods and lifestyle practices that may be sabotaging their health and contributing to their symptoms. I work with people who struggle with gastrointestinal issues, auto-immunity, food sensitivities/allergies and neurological symptoms like anxiety, depression and/or brain fog. I also offer guidance managing high cholesterol, type II diabetes, and weight loss. Each client is honored for their bio-individuality and receives a personalized program based on their unique physiology, state of mind and personal health goals. In addition to dietary recommendations, my clients receive recommended lifestyle modifications, addressing aspects such as sleep, hydration, stress management and self-care. I have struggled with health issues and understand what it means to be forced to make changes that are uncomfortable in order to bring your body back into balance. I have walked in the shoes of my clients along my own healing journey. I am committed to meeting my clients where they are and staying by their side as they take control of their health again.
