Total years in practice: 5
Amanda LaPlante MA, INHC, battled multiple autoimmune diseases for two decades. By 2013, at age 33, she was seeing 6 specialists and a primary care physician every month, with more than a dozen active prescriptions at the pharmacy. Words like "permanent disability" were being mentioned to her by doctors. Then, on Mother's Day weekend of 2014, her 7-year-old son wrote her a card saying she was good at sleeping! In that pivotal moment, Amanda became obsessed with finding real answers and restoring her health, rather than just medicating her symptoms.
After discovering the power of nutrition and Integrative / Functional Medicine, Amanda dropped over a dozen medications, shed 50 pounds, regained control of her health. She found new purpose in life... She is on a mission to illuminate the amazing healing potential within us all and the powerful roles that food, lifestyle, and mindset play in our health!

She is certified by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where she studied a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods.
