What participants are experiencing


L.F., Immune Collaborative Participant

"Guys! I just got off the phone with my doctor and my autoimmune disease is officially in remission.13 years of struggling and getting told there’s nothing they can do besides meds versus 4 months of lifestyle changes."

M.F., Immune Collaborative Participant

"I just had my post session at my doctor's office & completed the assessment again. I was shocked at how my numbers had changed. I rated so much lower in so many areas. Sometimes it’s hard to see the little changes over time but they really added up. My score dropped 50 points!!! I had the PA check my math because I just didn’t believe it."

A.B., Immune Collaborative Participant

“Today was a day without brainfog, a remarkable day. I was totally at ease during the meeting as I had just experienced how well behaved my brain can be :-) I want more of those days.”

B.D., Metabolic Collaborative Participant

"Really enjoying the class and focusing on wellness. For the one hour a week, plus homework, and personal effort. This has worked well for me. Great tools to help me fine tune my health goals and efforts. Grateful"

S.S., Metabolic Collaborative Participant

"I find that groups such as this help me to share what I am feeling/experiencing and this group helps me to acknowledge my experiences. Left to my own devices (my brain or mental state), I can get stuck. I appreciate what I am learning from others in this group."

Maria P.

"Last week I had 3 days of perfect poops, yay! Quite a relief from being constipated"


"This class helped me realize that I am my own health advocate. It is my life and I’ve got to really do the things I need to improve."


"After a couple of weeks it became clear – this was finally a group of people that understood me."


"I finally felt like I was part of a group. I could feel everyone’s encouragement, and that motivated me to make the changes I needed to make"


"Before the program, I had a habit of always saying ‘Tomorrow I’ll exercise. Tomorrow I’ll eat right.” This program helped me actually put it into action."


"The program was like a buffet of information to pick through! I really enjoyed the ease and flexibility of being able to be exposed to so many different topics."


"The program and the steps we're taking to remember who we are and what we should be doing is really important and I'm ready to do it again"


"The coaches have made it such a comfortable and safe environment to be able to express how you feel. They created a judgment-free space to get and give helpful feedback."


"I came into this program wanting to eat better and get thinner. But what I actually took out of this class was the ability to be kinder to myself."


"You know that you're noting this by yourself, you see all these different people that have struggles and just the same."


"This is the first time I haven’t felt deprivation while trying to make food changes. It slowly became normal to eat vegetables and avoid foods that are going to make me feel worse."


"At first it felt like the program was going to take forever. And then before I knew it I was trying to figure out how to keep my momentum going once it was over."


"Each of us has a laundry list of things we want to change. But we come together every week to find solutions. And we accept that it is up to us to change.-"


"This class helped me learn how to eat foods without processed sugars. I always knew things like candy were bad but now I’m looking at things like the ketchup labels."


"I just got off the phone with my doctor and my autoimmune disease is officially in remission. 13 years of struggling and getting told there’s nothing they can do besides meds vs 4 months of lifestyle changes."


"This class taught me the value of tiny habits. And that change does not have to wait for tomorrow. It can start right now."


"You know that you're not in this by yourself, you see all these different people that have struggles and just the same."


"When I was diagnosed with heart failure it was hard for me to get on the program of being alive. And this program helped me learn to be alive again."


Frequently Asked Questions

Is this group covered by insurance?

Please reach out to your clinic provider as they will be able to give you specifics on what your plan covers but generally speaking, your insurance will be billed for only 7 sessions during the program.

Is this group coaching or individual coaching?

The program is set up as a group coaching model to provide the highest level of support for each person involved. There will be opportunities for individual coaching within the group sessions, in one-on-one session, and all of the content is aimed to help you become your own self-advocate. The team and your coach will always be available to help along the way.

Can I sign up for individual coaching, too?

Right now, the offer is for group coaching only. We harness the power of community healing to create the biggest impact for each of our group members.

Why group coaching?

There are so many reasons why group coaching works! We have seen that coming together in group helps us heal faster than going the path alone. The group you will become a part of will be a wonderful support community. Everyone is walking a similar path to you so you can share resources, stories, challenges and wins together. Healing in community is one of the most important elements to a healthy lifestyle.

How many people are in the small groups?

Groups will be 15 -17 people - which is the exact right number to have community contribution but also individual support and attention by your health coach and licensed practitioner.

Do we take lab tests? And will I be prescribed supplements or medications?

No, the purpose of the collaboratives is to address behavior and lifestyle changes to directly impact your health journey. You will continue to have your lab tests and medical protocols administered through your doctor’s office. This group can also be a great compliment to the work you are doing with your doctor.
