Vanessa brings a unique perspective to her private and group coaching clients - she is a seasoned nutritional practitioner with 10 years experience working with various conditions (autoimmune, weight loss, adrenal fatigue, IBS, arthritis), an AIP certified coach & the mom of an autoimmune family.

She knows that dietary recommendations need to be practical, tasty, easy-to-implement as well as evidence-based in order to be successful which is why she uses her signature approach - Reality-Based Meal Planning - to help take the stress out of food. She provides all the tools clients need to succeed including easy-to-prepare recipes, meal plans, food lists and online journalling to help clients stay accountable.

Supplements can help you feel better faster - fatigue, pain and digestion. Vanessa creates simple, customized supplement protocols for private clients to address gut health, energy pathways and inflammation.

Vanessa uses an online dispensary that ships supplements direct to clients' homes in both Canada and the US so you don't have to search the store or web on your own. She is not dedicated to one brand, chooses her recommendations based on what's best for the person, and passes on professional cost savings to her  clients.

The cost of supplements are not included in services as recommendations differ from person to person.
