Why hello. I'm stoked to you're here!
My name is Danielle but I go by Danni. I live in beautiful BC, Canada! I’m formally educated as a Kinesiologist but I have an extensive informal education in evidence-based health and ‘biohacking’.
Although I’m just shy of 30, I’ve been through my fair share of mishaps: an eating disorder, bullying, low self esteem, digestive issues, subclinical hypothyroidism, anxiety, depression, body dysmorphia, blood sugar swings, mood swings, binge-eating, emotional eating, over-exercising, over-thinking, brain fog, daily headaches, hormonal imbalances, irregular menstrual cycle, acne, critically low blood iron, hair loss, adrenal insufficiency, chronic fatigue, parasites, SIBO, gas, bloating, multiple food sensitivities.
Frustrated by the lack of organized information and mis-information on how to deal with my array of health issues, I started to do my own research and experimenting. Reading books, listening to podcasts, watching videos, researching online & medical publications and paying privately for healthcare including testing. I was so sick of letting my circumstances and what everyone else was doing and saying control my life.
The result… I solved, cured or improved upon most of my health issues by myself or by the actions I took. And now I have a boat load of things to share about how I did it. AND how I continue to do it.

Why did I created this site?
To share what has helped me to overcome my laundry list of health issues and be a better human.
And to fill the information gaps. All too often I’ve told a client, friend or family member that I’d send them some resources on a certain topic and the information isn’t there or put together in an easy to digest, complete package.
So much more than you believe is possible.
But first you have to believe in the seemingly impossible.
Please let me explain.
Approximately 2 years ago, I quit one of my jobs (and eventually the other one) to pursue a dream. To start my own personal training business. About a month before unknowingly I was about to quit, a client recommended a book. At this point in my life, I was extremely down on myself. I clearly remember looking in the mirror and calling myself a loser *in my head* and then immediately recalling what I’d read earlier that day → WHAT YOU BELIEVE IS [essentially] TRUE. And at that point I believed I was basically a loser. Then IT CLICKED and I said something to myself along the lines of “shit Danni, no wonder you don’t like yourself and get awkward around people. You have no self confidence and you don’t believe in yourself so who the fuck will.”
This thought was the seed to huge personal growth. I started focusing more on my strengths and less on my weaknesses. How cliche, I know. But honestly it’s true. Slowly things started changing for me in the best way possible. The seemingly impossible became my reality: working for myself, self confidence, not binge-eating, eliminating my chronic fatigue, maintaining an ideal, strong shapely figure without putting in hours daily at the gym & on the pavement.
It all started with a belief.
