Starting out with her own health struggles with thyroid imbalance, depression, anxiety, Ulcerative Colitis, and Crohns disease, Amanda discovered miraculous healing through diet and natural therapies. But it was in 2015 that she found herself in a wheelchair from medical trauma adding Steroid Induced Myopathy to the list. Losing the use of her legs, in extreme pain, and adapting to life in a wheelchair, Amanda once again resorted to diet and natural methods to give her body a fighting chance....and won. She spent 2016 re-learning to walk and develop a healthy body once again, running a 5K marathon the following July. She has currently no diagnoses, no medications, and no supplementation for healing.
Amanda began her career after facing severe medical diagnoses that opened her thoughts to include scopes of practice from realms Eastern and Western. Her interest in research, cellular biology, and epigenetics led her to receive her PhD from New Eden School of Clinical Natural Medicine after starting her own Natural Health and Functional Wellness practice in Minnesota in 2007. Amanda’s research on digestive disorders such as Crohn’s, Celiac, IBS, and IBD focused mainly on the cellular mechanisms and her belief in the coding cells receive, thus determining their behavior.
She began studying Quantum Physics and how this might help her further establish her cellular belief theories. The belief that the outside environment largely determines behavior of the cells, as well as the coding cells have received in their “programming” from sources such as internal thoughts, theories, beliefs, and emotions as well as environmental influences and cosmic imprints, including conception and creation, is paramount to the understanding of “healing” vs. “curing”.
Applying these discoveries to her own life transformed her personally as well. Her deepened understanding of cellular behavior changed how she lived her daily life as well as how she worked with clients through practice.
Amanda has since taken this work to further writings and lectures, and is currently a sought after workshop presenter and speaker. Having an understanding of “Concept Pathology” and methods to re-train programmed threads have shaped new methods of work in the functional field. This also altered how she saw diet and nutrition and came to new understandings in that arena as well, leading to the creation of drfoodie.live and the books, “Clean Your Plate” a functional physiological understanding of nourishment, and “Beyond the Plate”, a guide to the relationship energy between the self and food. She is happy to hear her contributions lightening the lives of countless attendees of her workshops, lectures, and one on one appointments.
Her work is summarized in her books, “The Genesis Code”, “The Real Heal” , "Clean Your Plate", and the latest practical guidebook to creating a whole life: “UnBound: Raw and Real Plans to Kick Anxiety From Your Bucket List”.
Through DrFoodie.live, she helps individuals walk through their own miracles of healing, teaching concept identification, healthy eating, eating in balance, and how to heal with food through learning the food functions, the Law of Nourishment, clean eating recipes, and plant based nutrition to assist with weight loss, anxiety, depression, and nutritionally related chronic disease. Her bestselling books include such titles as "Clean Your Plate", "Beyond the Plate", "The Success Conditioning Work it Out Book", "The Genesis Code", "I Am Success", "The Energy of Divorce", "The Real Heal: The Genesis Code" and "Your Final Forty: Getting out of your own way of Success".

We were made to be healthy and happy.
It is estimated that 678,000 deaths each year are nutrition and obesity related.(www.cspinet.org)
That does not even account for the number of diseases that are caused in part or in whole by improper diet.
It would make sense that since our food is what becomes our body that we would both prevent disease process and assist it’s healing with food.
But a huge part of that impact that has been missing previously is the relationship, or the subconscious conceptual belief set we have with food: the faulty ideas, thoughts, and beliefs we have about food and ourselves and our whole life situation need to be addressed as well as proper education on the laws of nourishing the body itself.
We operate on the belief that:
All concepts need to be addressed in addition to physical care of the body.
It is necessary to educate on truth and principle of the biophysical LAWS of Nourishing the body, not solely on the nutritional makeup of the plate, but the needs of the body’s functional capacity.
It is necessary to teach the FUNCTIONS of food as a means to assisting and balancing the FUNCTIONING of the whole body.
It is necessary to understand faulty concepts as a causative factor in why we eat the way we do, that alongside improper nourishment education, our faulty subconscious programming thus creates the experience of health or lack thereof.
