Experience Deep Inner Healing

Meet Your Host

Dr. Sarah Erny, DNP

As a nurse practitioner who practices holistically, it is apparent to me how insufficient conventional medicine is for women’s needs. What I find is that my spiritual, herbal and artistic roots are where I can meet women and their hearts the most. I am passionate about being a vessel for women to show them ancestral ways towards healing our deepest wounds.

 

I believe we are meant to be deeply connected to all parts of ourselves (mind, body and spirit) as well as to each other in order to experience the healing that we so profoundly desire. I believe the way to this healing has always been within us, but our world has taught us to disconnect from that knowledge and left us feeling lost.

 

My mission and deep desire is to show women how to reconnect with their emotions, spirits and their bodies. I hold space for women to dive into a personal journey towards authenticity of their whole being – to be a witness to the fulfillment that comes from deep intuitive connection with oneself and the joy that comes with it.

Elyse Wagner

Why do we do things the way we do them? How can we do better? What are the possibilities we haven’t explored yet?

 

Elyse Wagner has always been a questioner, motivated to discover what’s possible when you’re really, truly in your soul purpose. For her, that purpose is to help others take ownership of their health. She first embraced this calling while in graduate school at Bastyr University, when she was diagnosed with celiac disease. In struggling with her diagnosis, she realized that she had always known, intuitively, that certain foods were creating “brain fog,” bloating, and mood swings. So she made the empowering decision to become the CEO of her health and tapped into the motivation to change her lifestyle.

 

Elyse healed her mind and body by applying the knowledge she was learning in her master’s program: that food and a positive mindset are the most powerful medicine. It became clear to her that she was called to empower others to choose health and educate them on how to achieve wellness.

 

After earning a dual master’s degree in holistic nutrition and clinical psychology, Elyse began practicing as a certified nutritionist and licensed mental health counselor. In 2013, she founded My Kitchen Shrink, Inc. and joined Dr. Scheinbaum at Feed Your Mind Wellness, LLC as a Health Coach, where they connected over their shared belief in the transformative power of Functional Medicine coaching.

 

Elyse always hoped to make a powerful impact on the world through health education. Founding FMCA and serving thousands of students as part of the Functional Medicine movement is the manifestation of a lifelong dream.

 

“Sandi and I share a passion for teaching, inspiring, and empowering like-minded professionals to become effective coaches. FMCA provides an educational framework that embodies the perfect blend of mind, body, and spirit. It’s not just a program, it’s a movement, and I’m honored to have the opportunity to guide your personal and professional growth. This is what I’m here to do, what I need to do. This is my purpose.”

 

Elyse is the author of Smoothie Secrets Revealed: A Guide to Enhance Your Health and co-author of Functional Medicine Coaching: How to Be Part of the Movement That’s Transforming Healthcare.
