Transform Your Health - Transform your life!
Hey friend, I am glad you are here!
I’m Lili Sannino. I am a Certified Functional Medicine and Integrative Nutrition Health Coach.
I want to both welcome you and thank you for your visit to my site today. I am humbly grateful that you’re taking your valuable time to read these words.
I know. You came to this website because you’re searching for something. You’re searching for answers; perhaps a direction; perhaps someone you can talk to… about whatever health issue has reared its ugly head in your life. Now we’re getting to the heart of the matter for you, as well as to how I can help you. I want you to feel confident in what I can do for you and if you decide that you want me to serve as a source of knowledge, wisdom and inspiration you’d like at your side, I’m there for you.
I help women find the reason why they have gained weight and lose those extra pounds. I specialized in thyroid issues, Hashimoto's, hormonal imbalances, weight loss without dieting and gut issues.
I’ve been known by many as the Montessori Teacher, a teacher of healthy lifestyles and healthy choices, and so many things along my path in life have led me to this calling.
I spent my childhood in my mother’s compounding pharmacy, learning about herbs, homeopathic remedies and the wonderful benefits of a good diet rich with whole and natural foods. When I moved from Europe to America, I fell away from the wisdom and the teachings of my mother’s pharmacy. The American lifestyle and the Standard American Diet attracted me and I fell into the trap of "easy and quick lifestyle", and I paid the price for that ignorance...I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s.
Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is a debilitating autoimmune condition in which the body attacks and destroys its own thyroid gland.
It was a harsh wake-up call to take control of my health, as the nature of autoimmune diseases is that one after another will present, spiraling into an endless parade of doctors, medications and debilitating side-effects that will continue for the rest of one’s life. And life is far too short and too great - a blessing to spend it like that.
Do you feel this way? My disease is a ‘blessing’ and as I struggled through it, I strengthened in my determination to not only fully understand the problem, but to also return to the wisdom of my mother’s humble pharmacy. What doesn’t destroy us only makes us stronger. I am proof of that, as you can be too. I knew I was on the right path as my health improved, and I knew I had to use my knowledge and wisdom for the benefit of others, which is why I created this website and my health coaching practice.
I received impeccable training from the world’s largest nutrition school Institute for Integrative Nutrition and The School of Applied Functional Medicine, where I mastered innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management, functional medicine for health coaching, techniques and over 100 dietary theories- Ayurveda, Gluten free, Paleo, Ketogenic, Raw, Vegan, Macrobiotics and everything in between. I even studied with the world’s top health and wellness experts including: Tracy Harrison, Dr. Mark Hyman, Joshua Rosenthal, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Susan Blum, Dr. Frank Lipman, Dr.David Katz, Dr.Mehmed Oz and many more.
Now I want to help you find your own way to a full and happy life, with a strong foundation of optimal health. I live life with Hashimoto's in remission and my passion is to show women find their way to remission and healthy weight.
I practice holistic health coaching based on functional medicine principles. I am your Health Partner, and together, we will discover your unique reset button for optimal health and wellness.
Thank you, and Blessings!

This is me in 2005 and in 2018
This is me at 32 and at 45. Real food, lifestyle and mindset did the magic! Now I feel great, powerful, young, unstoppable, wild and free!
I was sick, tired, medicated, depressed, fat, my hair was falling, I had brain fog, my gut was a mess, my hormones were out of balance, my skin was dry, I couldn't sleep at night...autoimmunity is no joke. Today it is all in the past.
