VANESSA BOND

Certified Nutritional Practitioner and AIP Certified Coach

As your autoimmune nutrition coach, 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 autoimmune conditions. There are many reasons why you may be struggling, and it's my job to help you identify what those root issues are and help you overcome them with a nutrient-dense approach that helps you reclaim your overall health.

If ever there was a reason why I became a holistic nutritionist, my daughter is it. You see, she has a rare auto-inflammatory bone disease called CRMO. Diet, lifestyle and a strategic gut-health focus have been MAJOR factors in helping better manage flares and inflammation.

Today, I'm focused on helping two types of clients: 

  • Autoimmune parents and their families who want to find relief from flares and learn how to thrive in all aspects of life as a team  ... family, marriage, work, school, volunteer, friends ... fun.

  • Women & Men struggling with autoimmune or inflammatory pain, fatigue and weight who are motivated and ready to use nutrition & lifestyle so they can move more, laugh more and connect more with life and loved ones ... so they show up in the way they want for those they care about, in a way that makes them proud. 


My proven approach combines 10 years of clinical experience and training.

  • 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.
