Passion for Intestinal Health  

Danielle believes strongly in the whole person approach to wellness, including mind, body and spirit, with a diet in nutrient dense food at center stage. She understands that overall health begins in the gut; that both dis-ease and health are dictated by the state of our individual microbiomes. Certain foods we eat, medications we take and the lifestyles we lead, contribute to the balance of our ”good” and “bad” bacteria in our intestines. Danielle encourages her clients to eat “real”, nutrient dense food, live physically active, mindful lives in toxic-free environments to assist in developing and maintaining a healthy intestinal bacteria balance. Danielle equates nutrition counseling to detective work. Her greatest passion is helping individuals reclaim their health by digging deeply to find the “root” of their health issues. Her role at involves working with patients through interpreting their lab work, making personalized recommendations based on the lab findings and providing individualized coaching to help clients restore their bodies back to optimal health. It is also really important to Danielle to be a source of support and encouragement for her clients through their healing process.

She is the mother to two strong and beautiful teenage girls, Gabbi & Lillie, has a wonderfully supportive and loving life partner, Tim and two awesome step-children, Ian and Estella. Danielle leads a healthy lifestyle by example and believes it’s important to practice what she preaches. She has been able to naturally overcome both hormonal and intestinal issues in her own life, which has helped her develop knowledge, compassion and strategies when working with her clients who share similar ailments. When Danielle is not helping others restore their health, she can be found cooking delicious organic meals made with locally grown ingredients from her CSA, hiking trails both near and far, sunbathing, working and walking on the beach, downhill and X-Country skiing, snowshoeing, biking as well as practicing yoga and mindfulness.

I'm a 48 year old mom of 3, with a passion for functional medicine and a whole foods keto lifestyle. I listen to podcasts and YT videos daily, as well as reading books when I can. I know A LOT, and am typically a DIY-er when it comes to my my family's health, but I had gotten to the point that I was overwhelmed and paralyzed with too much info, so I decided to take a chance on working with a health coach, and am very glad I did. Danielle has been a lifesaver! After a discussion of my history and issues (mild depression, brain fog, lack of drive and focus) she suggested some tests to ask my regular doctor for, as well as a GI Map test. We discovered I had inflammation and very high zonulin (even though I had been off of grains for many years), both of which indicated leaky gut. The Dutch Test also revealed low neurotransmitters and high cortisol. Danielle helped me decide which tests to order, helped interpret them, and suggested a protocol, which has been quite successful in helping me get to the next level in optimizing my health. I'm feeling much better. More in control, upbeat, and excited for the future.  

My 16 year old son Grant had been struggling with severe acne. We did the GI Map on him as well, and was shocked to find multiple gut infections, including high C-diff (which he was asymptomatic for.) His immune system was working overtime on those gut infections, and had no extra soldiers to fight the non-life-threatening bacteria wrecking havoc on his skin. The test also showed Grant, in black and white, the inflammation that wheat was causing him, and drove home the importance of avoiding it. The supplements Danielle recommended completely eradicated the gut infections. Gradually over about two months, Grant's skin cleared drastically. He feels much better and has made the connection between what he eats and how his skin looks, as well as how he feels. He's realized that dairy is also a problem for him, but we're still working to completely remove that one.  

The biggest turn around has come from my 79 year old mother, who was in very bad shape, and I do mean VERY bad. She had been dealing with chronic fatigue, orthostatic hypotension, depression, and severe digestive issues for years, but it had gotten to the point that she could no longer safely live on her own, or function with any quality of life. Her many doctors were of no use, and couldn't explain what was causing her symptoms. Their unspoken words indicated that her life was winding down, and there was not much we could do. I ordered the GI Map for my mom from Danielle, and HOLY COW, am I glad I did! Turns out she had multiple gut infections (Salmonella, Yersinia Enterocolitico, Pseudomonas, and Staphylococcus Aureus.) Her Secretory IgA was very low, showing her immune system was shot. She had probably had some of these infections for years, but all of her well meaning doctors, nor the 3 hospital stays in the previous 2 years, had turned up any answers. The powerful herbal protocol Danielle recommended worked. It took a few weeks to start seeing results, but once it kicked in, my mom came back to life like I hadn't seen in years. She's now back living at her own home, driving, taking care of herself, working in her backyard, and getting out and enjoying life again. Also, a miserable persistent yeast infection in her ears has finally cleared up and she's able to hear better. The difference is stunning.  

Overall, Danielle's incite and advice has been invaluable. She's kind and easy to talk to, and if she doesn't know the answer to something, she researches it and gets back to you. She also conferences with Dr. Jockers and the other health coaches weekly to help solve unusual problems. It is costly, and not covered by insurance, but not out of reach for most people. Also, Danielle will work with you to stay within your budget. She doesn't push anything you're not comfortable with. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their health.  

"Danielle was wonderful to work with, and she gave me the tools and guidance to heal my stomach after attempts by myself, mainstream medicine and even other natural paths failed. Coupled with the detailed lab work that Danielle thoroughly walked me through, and a healing antimicrobial protocol I was able to heal my stomach. After my nutrition work with Danielle, my husband and I started trying for a baby in February and got pregnant our first try! I'm now 29 weeks along, pregnant with a baby girl in the belly due November 23rd! Im so very appreciative to have worked with Danielle; had I not had her help healing my stomach, I know I wouldn’t have been able to get pregnant so quickly! And my stomach has been doing so great throughout this pregnancy, I’ve been able to eat food I couldn’t in the past, its really quite amazing! I highly recommend Danielle, she is highly experienced, knowledgable, caring, and pleasure to work with!"

"Danielle has had spot-on intuition about what was happening to me, from the initial conversation through the whole coaching process. She guessed from our first contact that I had SIBO, which was confirmed by testing. She also gave answers to the many questions I had throughout the whole treatment process, answers that tended to be again be spot-on. She has been an invaluable resource for me for both information, coaching, and encouragement. I could never have done this without her!" 

- Bill Delvaux, TN 

"Danielle was recommended to us by a friend last year when my daughter and I were having some health issues. She helped us understand our lab results and gave us both a thorough plan to treat and support our bodies. She was quick to answer any questions and went out of her way to make things both easy to access and affordable. She has a wealth of knowledge and will readily seek out answers to questions she has not encountered before. She continues to be my go-to resource when I have a question about a lab result, symptom or supplement. I am very thankful to have her as part of our health team!"

“It was fantastic, illuminating, comforting, supportive and truly healing to have worked with Danielle for my digestive issues. I have been struggling with digestive issues for well over a decade and for the first time since then now feel like I’m starting to run on all cylinders, which just feels amazing. She helped me to better understand nutrition, the body, and my overall health and wellbeing. A truly holistic approach, which is what I was looking for all along. Not only was she very knowledgeable, she was great to talk to as well! I felt like she really listened to me and took the time to address all my questions and concerns, which is contrary to what I’ve experiences with other health practitioners. Not only is Danielle an awesome health coach, she is an invaluable teammate in one’s journey to health.”

"I was familiar with Dr Jockers from online summits I have watched him on. This took me to check out his website and from there I saw consultations available with Danielle. I was searching for some answers/clarity with my husbands blood work. I noticed that Danielle offered to look at labs during her consultations. I signed my husband up and it was a great move. Danielle is easy to talk to and she is very flexible with her consultation times. She put our mind at ease right away and suggested some supplements and some small dietary changes and follow up blood work. Two to three months later my husbands blood work was back on point!  

I did ask Danielle some questions that weren't her area of expertise but she did gets us answers. What medical doctor do you know of, would admit that they didn't know something but still find you the answer...hmmm not many. What medical doctors would actually look at your blood work and suggest supplementation and dietary changes over pharmaceutical drugs? Again, not many if any.  

So if you are looking to become the CEO of your own health but need some motivation and guidance to get started then look no further than Danielle."

"Danielle is a phenomenal treasure chest of information and knowledge of the human body, and the nutrition to keep it nurtured in the best condition. She is also an exceptional, dynamic, and wonderful woman."  

-Jayne Newirth, MA 

This past summer my 11 almost 12 year old daughter, Lacey, was diagnosed with hashimotos. She had been very tired and sluggish and had gained a lot of weight which she was very insecure about. After her diagnosis I felt very overwhelmed at where to start. I found Danielle and emailed to see if she could help guide me in building Lacey’s body up to be as healthy as she could be. We had a FaceTime session and immediately I knew we had found the right person! Danielle personalized a plan for Lacey and has guided us through all of it. In four months Lacey has transformed into this beautiful, lively 12 year old. I’m so thankful to Danielle for helping us! It felt so overwhelming at first but after receiving a plan from someone so knowledgeable as Danielle it was like a burden was lifted! She has walked us through every step and was always quick to answer my questions! I know God put her in our life at just the right time!

I found Danielle after listening to a Podcast by Dr. David Jockers and starting the Gut Healing Program. I was trying to hone in on some of my health problems after numerous blood tests and ultra-sounds and after our initial conference, Danielle started me on the Sugar Detox / Paleo Template Program instead.  

For many years prior, I felt that I had discovered the correct diet/nutrition program and as a result of never really feeling good in various ways, I had turned to her. Danielle has been extremely supportive and has lead me in the right direction that I have needed. We have begun to resolve many issues through a Paleo Template Diet/Lifestyle and high quality supplements that work for my personal health condition. She has been quite responsive to my e-mails and has answered all my questions in a timely manner even though we are 1000’s of miles apart.  

I highly recommend Danielle and feel that she is a real partner in “peeling away the layers of the onion” for the necessary sleuthing that it takes to discover how to rebuild one’s health naturally.
