I’m a functional health coach, FDN-P, and an AIP Certified Coach. I’m also a second-year graduate student in the MS-FMHN (Functional Medicine and Human Nutrition) program at UWS. My passion and purpose is to help fast-track those that are in the same health crisis I was once in.

I typically work with special individuals impacted by chronic systemic inflammation and psoriatic conditions of the joints and soft tissues.

As a life-long sufferer of chronic fatigue, psoriasis, and psoriatic arthritis, manifesting as an endless roster of chronic and relentless mystery pains, endless doctor visits, and questionable (toxic) drug therapies, I’m not shy to say I know a thing or two about living with autoimmunity and the living hell that it actually is. Not to mention the embarrassment, shame, and feeling of isolation, that comes with the package.

I spent my childhood complaining about “feeling so tired”, all the time. Doctors – and there were many – had zero explanation for my chronic ‘tiredness’. In my late teens and early adulthood, the diagnosis invariably transmuted into a question… “maybe you’re depressed?” “Maybe you drink too much milk?” “Maybe you eat too much red meat?” “Maybe you need antidepressants?”

I received a battery of standard-issue immunosuppressant/ DMARDs, biologics, phosphodiesterase 4 inhibitors, and vague dietary and exercise-regimen suggestions. My health and quality of life continued to deteriorate to the point of being virtually bed-ridden for almost a year, barely making it to work, and sleeping through the weekends.

Through research, experimentation and the assistance of alternative health modalities, and hiring my own functional health coach, I was able to turn-the tide, to regain a marked improvement in health and my life!

I am a living example of the transformative power of proper nutrition, lifestyle, holistic healing modalities and functional science.

If my story sounds familiar to you, I’d like to help.

Nora Kassay-Farkas, MS; NNCP Natural Nutrition Clinical Practitioner ; Certified AIP Coach

Calgary, Alberta Canada

As a Natural Nutrition Clinical practitioner specializing in functional nutrition I have witnessed first hand the unique challenges those with autoimmune conditions face. In addition to symptoms specific to their autoimmune condition, many may also be dealing with adrenal issues, hormone imbalances, digestive issues, depression, extreme fatigue, migraines, joint and/or muscle pain. In an attempt to reverse or put into remission the autoimmune condition, a doctor or health care usually
suggests making nutrition and lifestyle changes. Knowing what changes to make and more importantly how to make them may seem overwhelming, especially when feeling unwell.

If this is your situation, I can help !

I have a passion for people, food and health as well as experience coaching clients through the AIP Paleo protocol . My programs are personalized to meet your specific dietary and lifestyle needs and challenges. I not only teach you the essentials of the protocol, but act as your coach to ensure success.

I look forward to getting to know you and understanding your situation. Please contact me if you have any questions or are interested in learning more about my process.

Hi, I am Marcia. I am a Registered Nutritional Counsellor, Certified Functional Nutritionist and Certified Bioindividual Nutrition Practitioner. I am also a proud Certified AutoImmune Paleo Coach and Nutrigenomics Counsellor.

Nutrition is my Passion and I am here to help you through your journey to a happier and healthier life.

Understanding how food and lifestyle affected my own health helped me overcome years of anxiety, brain fog, fatigue and digestive disturbances connected to gluten and dairy intolerances. I experienced the power of nutrient-dense, healing foods and used my education and experience to help my husband and my kids overcome their health challenges and reverse their Autoimmune diseases.

I believe that everybody can change their lives towards a healthful and happier life – and I can help you uncover your food sensitivities, understand your symptoms (and listen to your body), optimize your digestion and restore your mind and body’s health. I also believe that welcoming all that is positive in our lives can really help us in our journey.

I especially love working with kids, and have specialized in inflammatory skin diseases and food sensitivities/intolerances. I love how smart the AIP Protocol is, and in my practice I also like bringing in principles from other healing diets and strategically customize the dietary intervention for my clients.

I live a simple, healthful, happy and allergy-free life with my family surrounded by wholesome, nutrient-dense foods. We incorporate yoga and meditation in our daily lives and a lot of music from all over the world. My husband and my kids and are my inspiration for so many kid-approved AIP-friendly recipe creations.

I am passionate about the microbiome, genomics and autoimmune research, and I enjoy creating simple and nutritious recipes in my kitchen for my family.

Hello! My name is Stephanie Ortiz-Grabe and I am a Certified Health Coach, Certified AIP coach and a Physical Therapist. Approximately 20 years ago, I was suffering from extreme joint pain and was now longer able to provide direct physical therapy care to patients and instead transitioned to a leadership position overseeing therapists. After a year of seeing physician specialists and other health practitioners, I was finally diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. I eventually found the Paleo diet that helped my symptoms somewhat and then AIP which made my quality of life so much better. I have 4 other autoimmune/suspected as autoimmune diagnoses, and still live a very full life including hiking, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing in the Colorado Mountains. My goal is to provide guidance and support to others with autoimmune conditions and work collaboratively with your health care providers to aid in optimizing your health and overall wellness. I am available for in-person sessions in the Denver, Colorado Metro area or worldwide via phone or video conferencing.

I was diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis August 2014. I was sporadically following a paleo lifestyle since 11/2012. Meaning that the 80/20 rule became an obsession with adding gluten treats that I missed, which led to a large increase in carbs and gluten treats. I have figured out that the 80/20 rule does not work with me. When I was diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis I immediately purchased Sarah Ballantyne’s book The Paleo Approach. I read it over a weeks period of time and immediately started the AIP protocol. Within a week of starting the protocol my liver enzymes started dropping. My IBS-C, that I was diagnosed with when I was 18, symptoms disappeared. I did not realize that I was experiencing symptoms all of the time with periodic flares. In November 2014, 3 months later, I started my food reintroduction’s. The primary foods I reacted to were eggs that caused severe and prolonged stomachache, nightshades that caused IBS symptoms and dairy causing tiredness and nasal issues. I own and operate my own medical massage business, since 2011. Adding a whole body approach has made a difference in my clients lives. May 2017 I earned my Primal Health Coach certification. Since January 2015 I have been learning and working on becoming a Restorative Exercise Specialist through Katy Bowman. Very shortly I will be adding AIP Health Coaching locally here in Boise, Idaho where I live.
