Cheryl Kemppainen

Holistic Gut Health Coach

Welcome! I’m Cheryl, a Holistic Gut Health Coach.

I help Intuitive Professional Women who suffer from physical pain, anxiety, digestive distress and brain fog heal from the inside out.

Starting of course, in the gut. 

I wish I could say I was always going to go the way of natural health in my life, but that would be a lie. I did always had an interest and a deep underlying thread of knowing that food was important. I often felt sick, nauseous after eating and until I was 16 I thought it was normal to have a massive headache everyday. I quite literally never had energy. I never felt good and I didn’t even know what it was. I thought anxiety, brain fog, pain and a painful pit in my stomach whenever I ate was normal.

It wasn’t until my body got loud, real loud, that I realized I had an unhealthy gut. With a history of antibiotics (a lot of them) combined with an unfortunate parasitic infection, I now had a chronic illness. 

I was told that my condition was “Non-Preventable” and “Non-Curative.” In other words, there’s nothing that can be done. If you are reading this, you likely know how that felt. On top of that, I had failed four different medications. Rather than helping as they were supposed to, they made things worse. Way worse. 

The medication that helped? Prednisone. The one no one that destroys your body and no one lets you stay on. 

I suffered from intense back pain, irrational anxiety, daily headaches, bleeding intestines, confusion, frustration… the list goes on. I had no idea that my poor gut health was the root of ALL of those things plus my autoimmune and chronic illness. 

Deep down inside of me, I knew that there must be a better way.

The Gut is our centre of so many things. Our feelings, thoughts, moods, cravings are all connected to the health and well-being of your gut. 


What I’ve loved the most about connecting with Cheryl is that right from the first meeting, it was abundantly clear that she was there to support to me. Unlike many other coaches, Cheryl also LIVES her philosophies around wellness and her desire to help others with their journey is abundantly evident in all she says and does. I literally gave thanks to the Universe for me having met her. I can’t recommend her highly enough.


Incredible wellness guidance and support from a coach who cares and understands the mind, body, soul and holistic wholeness.


In today’s field of nutrition and health, it’s a treasure to find individuals who want to get to the root cause of your issues, not just treat symptoms! Nutrition and gut health are Cheryl’s main concerns- so important and I SO appreciate that!


My specialty is to be the bridge for you.

To help you merge your body with your mind, your purpose with your passion, your physical body with health and you whole self with wellness. 

And yes, this ALL starts in your GUT.

Last week I had three days without pain… I wasn’t sure that would ever happen again. Thank you Cheryl.


I’ve been working on my gut health for 11yrs and haven’t had much luck in it healing or repairing. My experience with Cheryl was she was very down to earth, extremely knowledgeable in so many different areas when it comes to gut health!! She was very compassionate to what I’ve been going through and attentive to my needs in this area. It was also helpful to know that she’s been where I’ve been before and has come out the other side of it! This brings so much hope to know this and to see that it is possible to heal from this. I was amazed at the level of supportive info that came through. I’ve never worked with a holistic nutritionist before but what she gave me was very supportive for my recovery with my gut health!! I look forward to working with Cheryl to see where her work takes the complete healing of my gut and the emotions that it carries.


I have never been 53 before. I thought the pain, brain fog and pure exhaustion were just a normal part of being 53. It wasn’t until I started working with Cheryl that I realized that the problem was not my age, nor my chronic illness, I had no idea how connected my gut was everything else. I’m so thankful I found Cheryl, after one week I had more energy and was no longer constipated. For the first time in a long time I am confident that my body will start to work for me rather than against me.


As we go through life we develop patterns.
These patterns become habits and routine.
I eat chocolate when I feel stress. 
I don’t like conflict so I bite my tongue and swallow my feelings.
I take care of everyone else but me.

Life sends us gentle whispers.

Ignored whispers become loud debilitating storms.  

I know because it happened to me.

We struggle to find stillness; the calm that turns on our natural healing mode.
We struggle to know the difference between healthy food and trendy food.
We struggle to find time to take care of ourselves.

If I hadn’t experienced my own health crisis I would not have believed just how important food is.

Nothing offered me relief until I began a healing diet. 
I learned what foods were good for me.
I learned what was good for me, may not be good for you.
We are all unique on a biochemical and metaphysical level.


I can help you find what your body needs to heal.

I meet you exactly where you are, and we work together to get you where you want to be.
Healing is not linear.
It is a journey.
A journey of a 1000 miles starts with one teeny tiny baby step.

No matter where you find yourself, please know that there is ALWAYS something you can do to make yourself feel better. Always.
