About today’s guests

Emanuela Visone, Health & Life Coach , Functional Nutritionist Counselor, & Author

Emanuela’s passion for natural healing began in 2016 when she healed her sweet dog, Sonnie, from irritable bowel syndrome using a unique whole food approach. This catapulted her into wanting to share what she had discovered with other pet owners who were as lost as she was. Fast forward to 2017 she had been battling adrenal fatigue, going through premature ovaries failure at the age of 38 followed by developed a thyroid issue and a mass and nodules on it. She felt so sick for so long and no longer liked the person she was becoming. She was chronically fatigued, had body aches, joint pain, along with stubborn weight gain, irritability, and was losing her hair. It was one of the worst points in her life. Emanuela was considering going on medication, as many do when faced with a thyroid issue, but her intuition told her “No!” There is another way… a natural way. She called her mentor who, in fact, reassured her that there was a natural way to reverse what was going on with her body. She started her natural healing journey and gave herself 3 months. A month later her energy started coming back, she lost 12 pounds and was no longer able to feel lumps protruding from her throat. She knew at that point that what she was doing was working. Four months later she went to the doctor and, through another sonogram and bloodwork, they confirmed that her thyroid was back to normal and the mass and nodules had shrunk by more than half their size. She was feeling more relaxed and had lost 24 pounds at that point. This was what inspired her to start writing her book, Healing Through Nature’s Medicine, A Story of Hope.

Emanuela is on a monthly podcast that airs on NY’s 970 am radio and also streams on iHeart Radio. It’s called Conversations with Joan. She is also on her strategic team on Change Your Attitude, Change Your Life. She is a Sr. Executive Contributor for Brainz Magazine, loves spending time with her family and friends, and helping people restore their health from many chronic ailments, and guiding pet owners on becoming their pets best healer, which brings her so much joy. She is also a level 2 Reiki Healer.
