Amanda's Story

Began like most of her clients

Amanda LaPlante MA, INHC, battled multiple autoimmune diseases for two decades. By 2013, at age 33, she was seeing six 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 then 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, and regained control of her health…

Amanda graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2017 where she learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories including Ayurveda, gluten-free, Paleo, raw, vegan, macrobiotics, & everything in between.
