Hi, I’m Amie Valpone, HHC, AADP, best-selling author of Eating Clean: The 21-Day Plan to Detox, Fight Inflammation, and Reset Your Body, Functional Medicine Nutrition & Wellness expert, columnist, spokesperson and motivational speaker. I work with and cook for for a variety of clients and people with busy lifestyles. It’s my passion to help struggling women and men find balance in their lives and with their health (including hormone balance, gut health, weight gain, autoimmune disease, fatigue, thyroid, adrenals, food allergies/ intolerances, and more).
In 2005, I graduated from Boston University with a degree in Business Finance and Marketing thinking I was going to climb the corporate ladder through my corporate jobs at Ralph Lauren in fashion design, VOGUE magazine in marketing/ advertising sales, and the N.B.A. in merchandising. Little did I know I’d land on disability from my job unable to get out of my bed while struggling to stay alive.
After spending 10 years struggling with chronic health issues such as Lyme disease, PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), C-diff colitis, parasites, pathogens, chronic Candida, methylation (MTHFR), Mold toxicity, Heavy metal toxicity, Hypothyroidism, Leaky gut, SIBO (small intestine bacteria overgrowth), chronic hormonal imbalances, edema and much more, I spent countless years working with the best Functional/Integrative M.D’s and hands-on healers studying, learning, teaching, and figuring out how to be healthy in a real way.
At my lowest rock bottom point, I let go of the conventional way and chose the unconventional route where I did the research on my own because no one could help me anymore. That’s when my curiosity took me to a whole new level to understand the mind-body connection where I discovered the hidden world of the unconscious mind, quantum physics, neuroscience, trauma and more. Today I’m in perfect health and I’m here to help you get there, as well.
I created a detailed plan for myself, which is what I currently use to help my clients get their health back, and healed myself in a way that no one thought of throughout my 10 year journey after visiting with hundreds of the best doctors in the world. Click here for my full story.
Are you tired? Stressed? Feel like you’re going a million miles a minute and struggling to create balance in your life? You know that there must be a better way to live. You’ve probably heard conflicting viewpoints about everything related to wellness such as how to treat symptoms, how to break free of negative thought patterns, and what to eat to fight inflammation. Chances are you’re struggling to find someone who understands what’s going on with your health and you need someone who has been there to show you how to do-it-yourself. I hear you. Trying to be healthy can seem confusing, overwhelming and exhausting.
When I was in the hospital and was given 24 hours to live with c-diff colitis in my early 20’s, which is deadly, I looked at the morphine dripping into my arm as I laid there half alive and promised myself that if I survived, I’d dedicate the rest of my life to inspiring others to get to the root cause of their health issues and help them realize they are not ‘crazy’ and their symptoms are not in their head. And that’s exactly what I did. I started The Healthy Apple, bought myself a camera, taught myself how to take beautiful food photography, taught myself how to cook without gluten-dairy-soy-sugar and other inflammatory ingredients and created a career I never knew existed. I couldn’t be more grateful for this wake up call that has allowed me to live in my truth and has showed me how to follow (and open) my heart to help others.
I’m here to help you transition out of feeling tired, bloated, and miserable to living a full and healthy life. The Healthy Apple and my cookbook, Eating Clean, were created to give you the courage and tools to embrace this new lifestyle and reclaim your health.
I love my work; I’m here to hold your hand and guide you. It’s my passion to see my clients faces light up with hope when they are empowered to make changes in their lives. When you start seeing the challenges in your life as opportunities for growth and well-being, something magical begins to happen. You realize that YOU and only YOU have the power. Don’t ever, ever, ever forget that.
Believe in yourself, challenge your doctor, eat clean, live clean and accept nothing less than your best life ahead.
I look forward to scheduling a session with you on my Services page.
Lots of love,
