What if I told you...

YOU have the power to help prevent chronic illness for your child?  

Are you frustrated by the fact that we're up against...

...a food system that places profits over the health of our children?

 ...a food system that has led to about 74% of U.S. adults & 40% of children & adolescents being overweight or obese?

...a food system that is inundated with chemicals & "food"-like substances?

...unrestricted food marketing to children?

...dietary guidelines & food policy that are influenced by the food industry? entire industry devoted to exploiting our brain chemistry to create chemicals which make food more or less addicting?





What if you could... 


Give your child a life free from chronic illness?

Leverage the power of nature’s medicine to improve, or even heal current health issues?

Help them grow into their happiest, healthiest, strongest, and smartest self?

Feel confident you are nourishing them in a way that protects & defends their health, from their very first bites & beyond?

Hi!  I'm Dr. Alyssa.

I’m a holistic pharmacist, and I’m passionate about helping you steward your child’s health, from their very first bites and beyond.

I'm also a mama like many of you, and I too am frustrated by the fact that we are up against a food system that is wreaking havoc on our health, and setting our children up for lives of chronic illness.  We have one of the sickest generations of children, with almost 1 in 2 dealing with some type of chronic health issue. I don’t want that for my children, and I don’t want that for yours. Our children deserve better.

The only thing standing between your child and our food system is YOU. 

As parents, we truly need to defend their health from the start. Their future depends on it.

I created the Holistic Baby-Led Weaning® course to help you do just that. 

Do you feel this same sense of responsibility?

Let's stand together and fight for our children, because no one will fight for them like we will. 

I'm in, sign me up!

Nutritional status during the first 1000 days of life can nutritionally program our child's risk for certain health conditions, diseases, and even cancers.


Window of opportunity

These early years serve as our opportunity to build solid, or thriving, foundations for our little one.

This course is absolutely a must have for all new parents. It has all the information you'll need to ensure your child is set up for success in the best way. I began BLW with my first child 2 years ago. I read all the books, articles and blogs. I joined Facebook groups and followed Instagram accounts. I spent a ton of time researching and finding information. I struggled at times to know if I was doing the right thing, especially with allergens! My second child is almost 6 months old now and I feel way more prepared after going through this course. I know I will have all information and references in one place when he is showing all signs of readiness! As a pediatric chiropractor, parents are always asking me if I have tips for starting solids. I 100% will be recommending this course. Save your time, energy, and sanity. This course is all you need. Not only will you feel confident feeding your child, but there is really important nutritional information here for everyone!

As an OT, I talk about these things in my practice but it's often not taken seriously regarding  how much food impacts coping skills and mental health, as well as physical health. This course covers so much from an OT perspective in terms of early oral motor development, being aware of the environment, and reducing the chances of picky eating! And then helps parents truly build gut integrity. This is a gift to every family (even with older children!).  If every family could have this information and start food this's the best gift we could give our child for lifelong health (and generations to come). TRULY FOUNDATIONAL for wellness and for creating lifelong adventurous eaters. This course is worth every penny! I am blown away by it's depth and amazing amount of resources but yet ease of understanding it all!

"Holistic Baby-Led Weaning is the course that you need if you are interested in BLW and are wanting to nourish your little. I began this course when my babe was 8 months old and I sure wish I had it prior to 6 months before beginning BLW. I started diving into BLW without really knowing what foods you should start with and why. I really only focused on the shape of the foods and texture. This led my baby to experience less bowel movements than previously as only breastfed. Through this course, Alyssa helped me understand the importance of gut health and how to ensure my little was being nourished through the food I was providing her. I love that this course is broken down into different modules which allow you to jump around and re-listen/watch previous lessons easily. In openness, I am hesitant on spending money on courses for my little because you never know if it truly is going to be valuable, but this one is!! I would purchase it over and over!"

-Raena C.

"WOW is all I have to say about this course. It gives you all of the information you could possibly need to make healthy and holistic choices when it comes to your babes first foods. The whole idea of defending and protecting our little ones immune system when it comes to what we are feeding them is so valuable. Alyssa does such a great job giving you all of the research and explaining it in a way that is easy to comprehend while being incredibly informative. You will definitely walk away with so much confidence in not just what you should be feeding your little one, but also WHY you should be choosing these foods. She does a great job at covering all of your basic baby led weaning questions like allergens, pros and cons, and food preparation but also dove so much deeper into the importance of food and nutrients. If you’re thinking about starting your little one on solids I cannot recommend this course enough!!"

-Cali M.

"The compiled sources, backed by thoroughly cross-researched science and studies, are worth their weight in gold. Dr Alyssa did not take her course lightly- she invested her all into this material and your mind will be blown by how confident and reassured you feel after diving in. When I finished this course I honestly redid many modules because the dense information you get in such an easily digestible layout is ADDICTING. This is all the information I thrive on but didn’t know I needed. You won’t regret it mama.  It’s changed my life in the way that my second child is an absolute breeze when introducing new foods, especially textured meats that I struggle to get my first born to try because I waited too long to introduce.  I was timid with my first and this course gave me every bit of confidence I needed."
