Hi, I’m Hanne Heinrich. I am a Danish Registered Dietitian working with health and nutrition from a Functional Medicine perspective. I work with my clients to identify the causes of their health challenges and address these through changes in diet and lifestyle. Every person is unique and need specific changes to optimize health. The Autoimmune Protocol supplies the fundamental building blocks for better health by focusing on the nutritional value of the foods you eat, eliminating foods that challenge your gut and immune system and adjusting lifestyle factors.

With the knowledge gained from treating hundreds of clients through the years and the great work done by Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, I strive to educate healthcare professionals as well as patients on the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases; how it is possible to manage disease through diet and lifestyle, and how knowledge is power when it comes to healing yourself.

Even though I am not diagnosed with an autoimmune disease myself, I still have had good results from following the Autoimmune Protocol. I prefer to walk the talk, and relate to my patients in as many ways as possible.  Have a look at my Danish website for further information.

I was diagnosed with MS in 2009 and have utilized the Autoimmune Protocol to further my healing when medication wasn’t as effective as I was hoping. I found incredible relief from my symptoms and was amazed at what food and lifestyle changes could do. This inspired me to want to help others do the same with their lives. As this lifestyle isn’t easy, but it’s incredibly worth it.

Amelia Brown Occupational Therapist, OTD, OTR/L, Certified Functional Nutrition Coach

Nashville, Tennessee
*Also Practices Virtually Worldwide

Hi, I’m Amelia, a full-time Occupational Therapist in Nashville, TN. With four years of clinical practice in acute care , I’ve treated patients with all kinds of conditions—heart disease, strokes, autoimmune disease, neurological disorders—you name it. Everyday, I see the suffering that comes with these conditions, and with one in two Americans having a chronic disease (and one in four having several), I continue to ask why. Yes, genetics and other non-modifiable factors play a significant part, but there’s also incontrovertible evidence pointing directly to modern lifestyle and diet. This realization, as well as my own experience navigating Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, has inspired me to complete additional training in order to become a health coach myself.

My mission is to empower others to make informed, thoughtful choices when it comes to their health in order to improve quality of life. I help clients with autoimmune disease address the necessary lifestyle changes to decrease internal inflammation. I provide education on meal planning, resources and recipes that aid in restoring gut health. I work with clients to identify food sensitivities and triggers while simultaneously incorporating nutrient-dense, healing foods. I also focus on strategies to:

-Manage stress and mindset
-Improve sleep quality and hygiene
-Promote regular and intentional exercise
-Reduce environmental toxin exposure
-Effectively communicate with medical practitioners

Whether you are impacted by chronic autoimmune disease or just want to live well, I would love to connect. Find me at

Patricia Shelton, IFMCP Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist

Shelton Nutrition
Bleicherweg 54

*Practices virtually worldwide

I am Patricia Shelton, a Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist based in Zurich, Switzerland. I work with clients one-on-one to understand each person’s unique nutritional needs and make diet and lifestyle recommendations tailored to the individual.

I believe that what works for one person may not work for another and that a combination of your genes, family traditions and values, and life experiences, gives your body a different set of requirements to function optimally than that of anyone else. The focus in my nutritional therapy practice is to restore balance where years of imbalance have led to noticeable symptoms.

I specialize in supporting individuals with autoimmune diseases, hormone imbalances, food intolerances/allergies, and cognitive decline, and have specific interest in sports nutrition and in weight management and body composition optimization.

I am American, studied at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London, and currently practice in Zurich. Please contact me at [email protected] or visit my website for more information. It would be my pleasure to work with you and help you move towards the level of health you desire. I look forward to hearing from you.

Welcome! My name is Natalie Steen, I am a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, and a Restorative Wellness Practitioner. I work with autoimmune clients who are ready to take their health back into their hands!

There are over 140 autoimmune diseases which have common root causes of immune system dysfunction.

The specific testing I do allows us to get a detailed view of what the intestinal terrain looks like, so we can create a targeted protocol for your specific immune system recovery.

The AIP diet (including modified versions) has proven to be a key part of this process.

I have shared in the joy my clients experience when finally feeling that their body and their health is back in their control.

Your body has an amazing innate ability to heal, when given the proper raw materials. I look forward to partnering with you on your healing journey!
