Martha Saunders Nutritional Therapy Practitioner

Kailua Hawaii
*Practices Virtually Worldwide

Aloha, my name is Martha, and I am a nutritional therapy practitioner. I specialize in gut health, blood sugar balance, and inflammation. I am a pastry chef and love finding ways to have a treat periodically that doesn’t wreck my health.

In 2016 I was diagnosed with Mixed Connective Tissue Disease and heard the words autoimmune disease for the first time in my life. I was told there was no cure and that there was nothing I could do naturally to regain my health.

But happily, that is only where my story stated. I went on the AIP within 24 hours of my diagnosis and never looked back! I reversed every symptom and regained my health.

I love working with women who want a holistic way to manage their autoimmune disease symptoms. I also work with moms alongside their 16–22-year-old child who has been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. Working with mom and child to help them navigate how to use AIP to support their own healing journey.

I live in Hawaii with my husband and son but work virtually with clients all over the world. I created Aloha AIP to help clients implement the AIP within a group coaching program but I also offer 1:1 work as well. I focus on nutrient density – flooding the body with nutrients so it can flourish – and making lifestyle and mindset adjustments.

I love helping clients find their best health so they can live vibrantly.

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 Forquer, RN Registered Nurse, AIPCC, Holistic Health Coach

Hi! I’m Patricia and I am really excited to be part of this network of very skilled practitioners. I’m also thrilled to add my AIP certification to my skill set because this protocol has helps strengthen my healing potential and these skills are greatly needed for this growing population of patients. My own personal journey dealing with Hashimoto’s led me to expand my skills as a Registered Nurse, become AIP Certified & a Holistic Health Coach. These skills now allow me to build on the compassion I have for my patients seeking guidance with their life challenges and finally allows me to share the amazing skills which have greatly helped me. I have been a Registered Nurse for 20+ years with experience in several areas although my initial & main focus has always been Women’s Health. I have recently expanded my focus & skills to incorporate a more holistic approach to health and wellness (the foundational skills I learned as a nurse) by addressing “Longevity Wellness” to address our greatly expanding aging population which definitely deserves the patience, compassion & a more focused plan of care. I look forward to helping others in their search for health and wellness.

*Also Practicing Virtually Worldwide

Raised by a chiropractor and a naturalist, the writing was on the wall that I would follow in their footsteps, however it wasn’t until I had to overcome my diagnosis of MCTD that I really began to delve deeper into the field of holistic healthcare. Studying with The Nutrition Academy, where the focus is on ancestral eating; real, organic whole food, sourced direct from the farmer wherever possible, reinforced what I had learnt in the 8 years after I was diagnosed. I have since gone on to study the microbiome, how lifestyle changes can affect your health and the value of adopting a positive mindset, and continue to read and research the latest information to ensure that not only am I up to date, but that I am also delivering that knowledge to my clients. When you give your body the right resources, there is no justification for illness and dis-ease to exist. My role as a health and lifestyle coach is to empower and support you to regain control of your health.

Rushden, Northamptonshire
United Kingdom
*Also Practices Virtually Worldwide

Hello, I am a Certified Nutrition and Health Coach specialising in empowering those suffering with Autoimmune spectrum, digestive or inflammatory conditions to reverse their symptoms with diet and lifestyle change.

I started experiencing digestive troubles in my late twenties that progressed to regular gallbladder pain, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (Underactive Thyroid), and Rheumatoid Arthritis by my thirties. I come from a background where knowing how much diet can affect your health has always been a part of my life. However, it took me a long time of trial and error in food elimination and a lot of pain before I stumbled upon AIP.

Having successfully reversed my own symptoms of Autoimmune disease it is my absolute passion to help others do the same for themselves. As a Health Coach I educate my clients on AIP, mentor and work with my clients on behaviour change, provide recipes, handouts and many tools to empower them to make the changes they need in order to live well with their condition.

I work face to face locally and for those further away via zoom. Please get in touch for further information and to arrange a free 10 minute chat about which service would best suit your needs.

Hi, I’m Stacy Roy. I am a Clinical Nutritionist, Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition®, and Women’s Health Educator. I started Vital Nutrition Services as a way to combine my life-long love of food and nutrition with my passion for enhancing people’s health through nutritional changes. Ever since I was a kid, I have always loved cooking, eating, experimenting with food, grocery shopping, and making my food from scratch. After graduating from San Francisco State University with a Bachelor of Science in Health Education/Women’s Health, I earned my credentials as a Certified Nutrition Educator from Bauman College. I then had the privilege of working at the Shanti Project, one of San Francisco’s oldest caregiving nonprofits for people with cancer and HIV/AIDS. It was during my seven years at Shanti, I discovered my passion for supporting people in making important and, sometimes, life-saving health enhancements through nutrition. Nutrition is vitally important for everyone, especially for people with compromised immune systems. In anticipation of starting my own nutrition counseling practice, I left Shanti to earn my Masters in Clinical Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport. I am a member of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals and became Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition® in 2015. I specialize in Digestive Wellness, Autoimmune Diseases, Hormone Balancing, Preconception Nutrition, Fertility, Endometriosis, PCOS, Fibroids, and Immune Enhancement.

Hi! I’m Jacqui Zimmerman, Registered Dietitian and Certified Health Coach.

I’m happy to report that I have been successful in healing my own body and in helping countless others do the same!

I am especially passionate about helping women with Autoimmune thyroid disease finally find relief from symptoms and renew their health and vitality. I provide virtual coaching services on both a one on one basis as well as through a group coaching program specifically for women with Hashimotos or Graves’. I look forward to partnering with you on your journey!
