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
Stress management
Positive thoughts and gratitude
Restful sleep
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).

Hello! My name is Denise and I have been a registered nurse for 18 years. I am an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and the founder of The Health & Wellness Code.

My focus is on individualizing a wellness program created to empower and support my clients. I offer two programs:

*3 month: You’ve been on your health journey but need extra guidance and support on improving or adjusting aspects of your lifestyle to reach your goals.

*6 month: You need support on determining what your goals are, creating an attainable action plan, accountability to reach your goals, and guidance on nourishing foods. This program is great for those who want to learn in depth information and implementation of the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP).

I received my Bachelors degree from Loyola University’s Niehoff School of Nursing and a Masters in Nursing from North Park University. In addition, I am a member of Sigma Theta Tau Honor Society of Nursing and the Institute for Functional Medicine.

Hello ~ I’m Cathy, and I’d love to help guide you on your journey to great health. I’m a Certified Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (FNTP), AIP Certified Coach, Certified GAPS Practitioner, Certified Healing Foods Specialist (CHFS), Certified Food & Spirit Practitioner (CFSP), and I am Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition ®. I’m also a Licensed Massage Therapist, public lecturer, holistic-health practitioner mentor, and even an occasional author.

I live, play, work, garden, and relish creating delicious meals to share in Central Oregon as the owner and primary practitioner of Open Door Healing LLC, and I enjoy working with both local and distance-based clients through group programs and individual sessions. I have over 20 years clinical experience providing holistic nutrition counseling, therapeutic bodywork, exercise program development, and holistic lifestyle education to a wide range of clients, most if not all with some form of autoimmunity. I grew up all too familiar with the impacts of autoimmune disease watching multiple family members struggle with diabetes, and my passion for healthy living through real food blossomed into a career in functional nutrition after several years of bodywork led me to recognize diet as a root cause of inflammation. My nutritional therapy practice is an experienced blend of mind-body-spirit work developed over the course of many years of study and work with dozens of clients, and I love to tailor your nutritional therapy care to your own unique needs. As an educator and nutritionist, I hope to instill my love of learning about the human body in you and witness you fully embrace your own journey to optimal health.

Now I’m on a mission to help women, just like you, create their own health transformation. I support clients in creating a realistic and sustainable plan that delivers results so they can thrive in their body and in their life.

Certified in the Autoimmune Protocol and the Wahls Protocol, she provides the education and accountability to adapt the protocol into the individual’s unique lifestyle.

Alene holds three certifications: Nutrition Coach, Natural Food Chef and Essential Oil Specialist, and two specialty trainings in the Autoimmune Protocol and the Wahls Protocol. I bring both my personal and professional experience to provide you with the education and accountability you need to successfully adapt the protocol to your unique lifestyle.
