*Also Practices Virtually Worldwide
Hi, I’m Julie! I am an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and Certified Coach for the 21 Day Sugar Detox. After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2011, I learned that medication was not enough to improve the fatigue, numbness, and brain fog that I was experiencing. By removing gluten and sugars from my diet, I found relief from MS symptoms and migraines, and improvement in my overall health. As a coach, I work with motivated individuals to make changes to their diet and lifestyle to help them feel their best. My clients experience improvement in their autoimmune disease symptoms, migraines, inflammation, and digestive issues. I am passionate about the healing power of food, and my mission is to bring a sense of hope to others who are looking to regain control of their own health.

Rhonda Gibler Integrative Health Coach
*Also Practices Virtually Worldwide
Hello! My name is Rhonda Gibler. I am a registered dental hygienist, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, and AIP Certified Coach. In the 15 years I have practiced dental hygiene, I have worked with many patients with autoimmune disease like Lichen Planus and Sjogrens. In June of 2020 I was diagnose with an inflammatory scalp condition called Lichen Planopilaris. This propelled me forward to dig even deeper into the diet and lifestyle aspect. Recently I finished the AIP Certified Coach course. I am honored to serve those with AI skin conditions. I believe there needs to be a blend of conventional treatments along with diet and lifestyle modifications to fully support the immune system to perform at it’s best.
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.

In today’s world we have information overload, not always the correct information and it’s too hard to decipher who is telling us the truth.

My mission at The Center for Functional Health is to guide you to be in the best health you can be, to enjoy the freedom to spend quality time with your family and friends and to pursue life on your terms without health restrictions.
The Center for Functional Health will enable patients to exponentially improve their health through the use of technology such as advanced functional lab testing and clinical examination; education and personalized attention. With the patient and their primary care physician acting as part of the team, The Center for Functional Health will create the setting for transformational growth towards optimal healthy living.
Alison P Meletta Kucich Functional Nutrition Consultant and Certified Health Supportive Chef
18 South Woodland Drive
Fair Haven, New Jersey 07704
*Practices Virtually Worldwide
I am Alison Meletta Kucich, a functional nutrition consultant, certified health supportive chef and mom to four boys and a giant lapdog. Although I work virtually with clients across the United States, Canada and the UK, I call the Northern NJ Shore my home. As a professional who has tackled personal autoimmune disorder for thirty years, I understand the balance necessary to achieve better health while still living a “real” life. For most of us, life cannot stop when we are diagnosed with a medical condition, and I feel that managing your chronic health concerns shouldn’t be your full-time job.
I truly believe that food is medicine. Helping clients see that nutrition and lifestyle are critical to both reversal of disease and overall health is my passion. I take a practical, compassionate and evidence-based approach to tackling clients’ nutritional needs, and feel strongly about honoring each client’s unique situation. I focus on client education, goal setting, accountability, support and collaboration with your medical professionals to ensure a seamless process. As a trained chef, I delight in offering solutions that help make the AIP Protocol both sustainable and enjoyable. (Spoiler alert: I want you to eat your way to awesome!)
I am an avid, lifelong learner with nutrition certification from Tufts University, as well as additional Full Body Systems functional nutrition coursework from Functional Nutrition Lab, and health-supportive culinary arts from the Natural Gourmet Institute for Food & Health. I have degrees from Franklin and Marshall College (BA), where I completed the pre-med track, and The London School of Economics (MSc). I am also a certified Kundalini yoga instructor, as well as the former owner of a NYC-based baby food delivery company. I am passionate about the work I do and give my clients 100%.
Stephanie Lynch MEd, AIP Coach, Certified Personal Trainer and Nutrition Coach
Halifax, Nova Scotia
*Also Practices Virtually Worldwide
Greetings from Nova Scotia, Canada! My name is Stephanie Lynch, owner of Harmonized Health Halifax. I have been an educator for over 25 years and a passion for health and wellness led me to also pursue certifications as a Personal Trainer, Corrective Exercise Specialist and Nutrition Coach. I believe wholeheartedly that health is not a look, an age, a size, or a number. I am passionate about helping clients find joyful ways to appreciate, move and fuel their unique, amazing bodies.
My own struggles with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis led me to the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) about 5 years ago. The incredible success I experienced, and continue to experience, on the Autoimmune Protocol inspired me to become a certified Autoimmune Protocol Coach. My goal is to support as many people as I can who are coping with autoimmune illness, or suspected autoimmune illness, by coaching them through all facets of AIP.
My educational specialization is in the area of differentiation; the ability to customize one’s learning experiences. This is something I carry into my personal training, AIP and Nutrition Coaching as well as I create programs specific to each individual with whom I have the privilege to support. I do not believe that one size fits all; we all come to this journey with unique strengths and challenges. I will work diligently beside you, supporting you on YOUR healing journey, modifying as necessary, in ways that best fit your unique set of circumstances. With an extensive teaching background, my goal is to listen, support, educate and empower you with the knowledge and strategies that will help you to minimize your Autoimmune symptoms and maximize your health.

*Also practices virtually worldwide
Welcome! I’m thrilled you are here and taking the step to look for a partner in your AIP Wellness journey. I found through my own journey with Hashimoto Thyroiditis that the autoimmune healing path can at times feel solitary. This is one of the many reasons I have become an AIP Certified Coach, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Restart Instructor – to help clients bridge that gap faster between diagnosis and what to do next to begin healing, feeling better and become empowered to transform their health.
With my certifications, teaching experience and decade of also working as a Wellness Coach focused on mindset related to individual health goals, I have the tools and know-how to help you accomplish you AIP goals and be there for you along the way.
I work with clients individually and in groups, both locally in NYC and Stamford, CT, as well as virtually worldwide. Though I do have an increased focus of clients with needs regarding Hashimoto Thyroiditis, Adrenal Fatigue and pregnancy, I enjoy working with all clients on their autoimmune journey who are ready to take the next steps.
There is nothing better than having someone by your side that knows what you are going through, has already experienced it, can help guide you as well as teach you how to be your own best advocate for your healing path ahead.
Everyone has their own bio-individuality and I’m ready to meet you where you are to help you move forward with your goals. Email me to share what you are hoping to accomplish and set-up a complimentary 15-minute call to discover how we may work together.
