Coaching

Hi!  My name is Shanna, and I am a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and AIP Certified Coach.

In addition to my online group coaching programs, I have an AMAZING practitioner who works on my team and is ready and available to work with you!

She is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner as well as an AIP Certified Coach with years of experience in working with clients who have Hashimoto’s and all kinds of autoimmune conditions. I hand picked her and have no doubt you’ll love her as much as I do! She truly loves and cares for each client. She also works closely with me and has access to my expertise and resources as well.

Take a look below and see if you think we’d be a good fit to work together!

At the core of my practice and our team is a deep love for our clients
and a recognition of their bioindividuality.
Our goal is to truly see and hear each client, and to develop a personalized nutrition and lifestyle protocol to help each
client feel their best – inside and out!
If you’d like to work one on one with an amazing member of my team, please know our goal is to meet you exactly where you are.

 

We love to work together to develop personalized long term goals as well as customized short term action steps that help you feel empowered in your journey!
While there is no one size fits all nutrition and lifestyle protocol, there are foundations of health that are key to balance and that we will work together to support including:

 

optimizing digestion, blood sugar balance,
fatty acid balance, mineral status, and hydration.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you diagnose, treat, or cure diseases?

No I do not as I am not a doctor, and we do not have a doctor on our team.  I am a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and AIP Certified Coach. The amazing practitioner on my team is also a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and an AIP Certified Coach.  We do not diagnose, “treat,” or “cure,” a disease.  Rather we help you to support the foundations of health, including optimizing digestion, blood sugar balance, fatty acid balance, mineral status, hydration, and more.   We accomplish this through nutrition, lifestyle, and mindset.  It will be your responsibility to communicate with your medical team so they are aware of the changes you are making as well as adjust or decrease any of your medications as needed. If you are looking for a functional medical doctor, I recommend visiting ifm.org.

How long will it take until I feel better?

Just as each of us have different bioindividual needs, the amount of time it takes for each of us to feel better inside and out will differ.  There is no microwave healing, and if you are looking for a quick, overnight fix, I am not the best practitioner for you.  We encourage our clients to see these changes as long term lifestyle changes – as the beginning of the rest of their lives!  Some clients will be ready to go all in and take a deep dive into nutritional therapy right off the bat!  Others will be more successful with a slow and steady approach, and that’s okay too!  Our goal is always to meet my client exactly where they are, and say “Hey, I know this is hard and scary, but I believe in you.  Let’s do this together.  It WILL be worth it.  It may not feel like it today or tomorrow, but trust me, trust in yourself, and trust the process.”

Do you offer refunds or guarantees?

I do not offer refunds or guarantees…except that I guarantee and promise that I will love you, believe in you, and do everything I can to empower you to love and believe in yourself as well as you embark on this journey!

Will this be easy?

In my experience…no, it won’t be easy.  But it WILL be worth it!  One of my favorite quotes is by Justin S’ua :  “Difficult is not bad.  Difficult is not impossible.  Difficult is just difficult…and you can do difficult things.”   I believe in you.  I do what I do because I experienced the life changing power of nutritional therapy myself.  I am here because I believe if I can do this, anyone can.

Do you include supplement recommendations and do I have to take supplements?

Our packages do include supplement recommendations, as well as access to discounted supplements.  While we recommend customized supplement protocols, they are not required.  Our focus, first and foremost, is on nutrition, lifestyle, and mindset.

Can you help me implement the autoimmune protocol (AIP), troubleshoot the AIP, or reintroduce foods on the AIP?

Absolutely! We are experts in all things AIP and are happy to help you implement and / or troubleshoot the AIP as well as reintroduce foods on the AIP! This is our JAM!

Testimonials

Before I started working with Shanna I had been dealing chronic health problems for years. I had a hard time getting out of bed in the morning and would have to rest so much throughout the day. Even short walks were a huge effort for me. I worked with many functional doctors and a therapist over the years but nothing has worked as well as the amazing, loving and kind support that Shanna has given me. Her knowledge and resources were a game changer. I am now back to being a morning person and have more energy and motivation than I have in years.

Rachael H. from Texas

I went years of trying different medicines and seeing different doctors and getting no answers or gaining any progress with my health. I finally started working with Shanna and within one month I started seeing more progress in my health than I ever did in years. Shanna is an incredible coach and mentor and is extremely knowledgeable in nutrition. I worked with Shanna in group and one on one coaching and know that if it wasn’t for that time, I would not be in the place I am in now. I recently got my blood levels taken and my levels were nearly perfect…I owe it all to Shanna and her ability to coach and mentor me in my journey with food. It was hard at times but SO worth it in the end. Shanna not only helped me while she was coaching me but also set me up for success when our one on one coaching was done. Shanna meets you exactly where you are in your journey with LOVE and no judgement at all. I am forever grateful for all she has done in my life!
