If ever there was a reason...
Hi, I'm Vanessa Bond
Founder of Bond With Health Inc. and the BWH Autoimmune Collective
This is my story
I became a Certified Nutritional Practitioner to overcome my own health goals (IBS, eczema, elevated RH factor). But then in 2018, my daughter was diagnosed with an ultra rare rheumatic condition called CRMO (similar to JIA or RA).
Diet, lifestyle and a strategic gut-health focus have been MAJOR factors in helping better manage flares and inflammation.
And so now, my business is focused on helping women (& sometimes their families) improve inflammation (pain, swelling, digestion, energy, skin) so they become confident in knowing how to care for their bodies inside and out while living with chronic illness.
I believe nutrition plans should be practical, flexible and realistic for real lives.
I believe nutritional recommendations should be evidence-based - not trendy - and honour your unique situation. I do not follow a "one-size fits all" approach ... especially when it comes to inflammation. There are many factors to take into consideration, and it's my job to help you identify and overcome these influences so you can get back to feeling confident in your body.
Some quick credentials (because experience matters):
I support women, men and kids from all over North America with my private or group coaching programs. My services are intended to complement medical care - not replace it.
I am team focused and collaborate with talented naturopathic & functional doctors, along with other healthcare professionals, including fitness, chiropractic and mindset experts
My roots in nutrition began working in two of Toronto's top naturopathic clinics where I learned the ins/out of functional lab testing and strategic health support for a wide variety of conditions. I also worked at a leading Canadian supplement company specializing in nutraceuticals, homeopathics and herbal medicine.
I hold a diploma in Applied Holistic Nutrition from Canada's leading holistic nutrition college, requiring over 700 hours of in-class (in-person) instruction and coop placement (now I mentor these students). I also hold additional certificates in AIP nutrition, gut health, endocrinology and nutrition, fat loss, blood sugar balancing, energy medicine and live cell analysis
I believe in the integrity of my profession and am a member of the Canadian Association of Natural Nutritional Practitioners
And of course, I have a lot of personal experience in using nutrition to overcome health issues. I live and breathe it.
