About Jennifer Ellis

I am a National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach, Certified Mindfulness Coach and Life Coach. I specialize in the Gut Brain Axis and Gut Microbiome connection to our health and symptoms. I help people understand the collective daily choices they make and the impact on their health and steps they can take to change the path they are on to a healthier, more active, happier future.

Without good health, what do you have?  This is my purpose. My "why".  To help people restore their health to feel great, energized and full of life...everyday!!

I offer expert guidance, scientific research, accountability and years of personal and professional experience. 
 I am passionate about helping educate, encourage and coach my clients in the following areas:

  • Gut Brain Axis health and the Gut Microbiome (our 'second brain'), the connection and effects on our mental and physical health.  I have spent countless hours reading research articles... the connection with anxiety, depression, IBD, IBS, MS, Alzheimers, Parkinson's, Cancers, Autoimmune diseases and more
  • Making healthy changes for sustainable weight loss, including coaching a healthy version of the Keto Diet, Mediterranean or other lifestyle of your choice.
  • Navigating medical conditions and possible options or assisting in adapting to a 'new normal' (I can work with your doctor and you together)
  • Holistic Options for specific conditions. I believe in doing everything as close to natural as possible. This includes your dog's health too!
  • Mindfulness and benefits of daily practice.
  • Gratefulness journaling  
  • Mold Illness, C.I.R.S. (Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome) the symptoms and effects on our bodies, how to detox and help your body heal, how to clean your home and more.
  • I can help you learn Resilience, Mindfulness, expand your mind to the possibilities you hope for and Get into Action for success. Using Positive Psychology. Character Strengths and Motivational Interviewing I empower my clients toward their goals.
  • ... All things included in a "Balanced life" so that my clients can be their absolute healthiest, active, happiest selves!

I want to offer Transformational Retreats because it's easier to start making changes away from your daily life and routine. Stay tuned to hear when this might be able to happen despite this current pandemic.

I offer classes online through the Dr Sears Wellness Institute. I offer L.E.A.N. Start and PRIME Time Health. You can learn more by going to my website.

I am a Wellness Partner with an amazing company with completely all natural plant ingredient products based on the newest scientific research of the Gut Brain Axis and the Gut Microbiome being our 'second brain'. These products healed my body enough in just 2 months that my bilateral eczema caused by delayed reactions to foods I had suffered with for 5 1/2 years! Gone! And has not returned!! go to my bookme.name/simplybalancedlife and schedule a short chat to learn how they might help you too. 

      On a personal note, I am a mom of four grown children and two step children and we have 5 grandchildren together! (I know! It doesn't seem possible to me that I am old enough to be a Gammy!:) I have two dogs; Buster Jay is a Boston Terrier and Nella is a Yellow Labrador obsessed with playing fetch with her ball.  I love to exercise, go for walks, hiking and biking. I love photography and reading. I love to travel and can't wait to travel again! I've been to Costa Rica, New Zealand, Australia, and Canada. I love to bake (cookies are my fav!).

      My health has had it's challenges since I was 10 days old and in the hospital with strep throat, bronchitis and pneumonia! Sick off and on with each of those for 5 years. I've had to have 22 different surgeries (none were elective).  I have extensive food allergies caused by Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis caused by Mold Illness/C.I.R.S. which I am still working toward detoxing. Healing is a journey. I've had doctor's give me no hope and I've gone on to find a way to prove them wrong a few times in my life. A diagnosis doesn't always mean permanent! There is Hope in Holistic Healing! And I can help you along your journey find the way!

        Be Well, Smile and May Your Gut Microbiome be Balanced :)  Coach Jennifer
