Alumni Profile: Doris Romano
Doris Romano is a Registered Nurse and Registered Holistic Nutritionist™ professional. After a year into her nursing career at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, she travelled to a remote island in northern Manitoba to work at a nursing station. Within a month of being there, she was determined to cure diabetes. But one look at the “fresh” produce that was flown in every week, and she knew she was going to have her work cut out for her. After two years, she returned home, feeling defeated and jaded by what she witnessed. But she was also feeling changed. Her experience up north opened her eyes to what true health meant and it impacted where she wanted to put her energy – she went back to school to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and has been fascinated by the power of nutrition ever since.
Soon after was the start of many years of debilitating symptoms and in 2018, she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s. She immediately immersed herself into the autoimmune protocol and was amazed at how quickly it helped. It was the first step in her journey to getting back to feeling like herself again and the results were so powerful that she went on to become an AIP Certified Coach in order to provide other women struggling with autoimmune disease the support they need to live their best life. She launched @myAIPkitchen with the goal of making AIP as simple as possible for women so they can focus on healing and living well with autoimmune disease.
In addition to her private consulting and coaching practice, Doris works in the pharmaceutical industry with patients on biologic therapy for long-term inflammatory conditions. You can follow Doris at @myAIPkitchen on Instagram.
