Welcome To The Integrative Autoimmune Network ... We Build Resilience!

Your genetics are not your destiny. You CAN redefine your health & how you feel, starting today.

 

Working with your doctor on your autoimmune is critical, yet genetics & medication are only one part of the solution.

Nutrition. Lifestyle. Environmental influences. Gut health. Stress.

All autoimmune experts agree these play a HUGE role in the chronic inflammation, the progression of disease and persistent symptoms.

The good news is that you have control over much of this.

This is why we created ...

The Integrative Autoimmune Network & Introductory Jumpstart Program!

 

We are the online monthly membership for women with autoimmune who are ready for proven professional support to help you step into your own healing know-how.

We provide wisdom, simple steps & effective resources to help you create & stick with nutrition & lifestyle changes that keeps you in control, no matter what life puts in your path.

Everything we provide is designed to INTEGRATE with your treatment plan, not replace it ... the team you can lean on in between your specialists and lab tests for greater progress & relief.

Our team includes several autoimmune specialists in the areas of functional & holistic nutrition and mind-body therapies with five autoimmune among us (rheumatic disease, MS, Hashimoto's, IBD, psoriasis).

 We've walked in corporate stilettos, are raising families of our own, and understand the demands you have at home, work and in the community.  Making yourself a priority isn't always easy, but we know from experience, it is always worth it! 

You have one body and one life ... Make the most of it.

"Vanessa helped me stay on track, especially on the days I wanted to give up"

Headshot of Vanessa - anti-inflammatory nutritionist

"Vanessa is compassionate, informative, and motivating. Her programs are set in a way that you are gradually changing and improving your diet and lifestyle. She helped me stay on track, by providing me the ‘pep’ talk I needed to push through, especially on the days or weeks I just wanted to give up. I don’t think I would have been so successful without her and her amazing programs."

- Victoria S, RA, Lupus, Sjogren’s

"Vanessa's approach is very different from my previous experiences. I am a perfectionist and in the past I would jump in 100% with a new eating plan and try to be perfect. However, with Vanessa's approach, she helped me to build a better relationship with food and a plan that was flexible to suit my specific needs. It continued to support me to be healthier, but I didn't feel deprived or too overwhelmed (like I did in the past). I also liked her level headed approach between the medical and holistic industry. Again, it was a good balance between the two and not the one or the other."

- Karin R (Hashimoto’s, RA and Type 2 Diabetes)

Too good to be true?

A personal note ...

In 2021, our communities and clients told us (loud and clear) they want affordable, monthly guidance & support with vetted professionals because autoimmune is a lifelong relationship ... it's not "fixed" with a cookbook, supplement or video.

They are busy, want to keep working and want to reduce their risks for metabolic disease + additional diagnoses ... something that is common with autoimmune, that no one talks about until it's too late.

So in 2022, we created what they asked for and quite frankly, there isn’t anything like this for autoimmune with this level of expertise, personalization and support, which is why a growing body of doctors & health professionals recommend our membership to their patients and clients.

It is our personal mission to remove the physical, emotional and financial strains of autoimmune, so you feel empowered in your health and your ability to work with your body, no matter what life throws at you.

We are committed to supporting YOU ... the person ... Which is why we offer The Jumpstart free trial and our "cancel anytime" policy.

So, if you're ready to make yourself a priority and reconnect with your body and health, we invite you to join us. It is our honour to support you.
