Heather Deranja, CEO

MA, RDN, LDN, CPT

Heather is a registered dietitian nutritionist, cognitive behavioral specialist and personal trainer. She helps women with autoimmune diseases who feel defeated go from surviving to thriving. She helps them to rewrite their thoughts, behaviors and stories so they can feel confident, sexy and empowered to take control of their health. Through mastering the mind-body connection, they are able to boost their energy, attack anxiety and depression, cultivate self-acceptance and transform not just their bodies, but their entire lives.

Heather was diagnosed with an autoimmune kidney disease when she was 18, and was told she would need to be on dialysis or the transplant list within 5 years. Unable to obtain health insurance, she didn’t accept this as her reality and was able to use lifestyle and nutrition to “beat the odds”. Now 25 years later, she has been able to manage her chronic disease without medical intervention.

Heather’s passion is helping individuals who suffer with chronic conditions heal from the inside out and find balance in mind, body and soul.
