HI I’M Allie
For over 25 years I’ve approached health and healing with a curiosity and connection to the natural world. Embracing food as medicine, mind body modalities and a heart centered approach and belief that given the opportunity the body can heal and we can evolve to live a happy, healthy, beautiful life.
My work together with clients is about learning how to create sustainable health + wellness, empowerment + self-love, vibrant + nourishing lives that combine the very best of modern medicine, nutritional science, nature + wisdom.
I believe we are all individuals with a unique story that require a personalized approach to health.
I am also a mother to 3, sister, daughter and wife. I love to cook, spend time with family and friends, be in nature, attend live music and festivals, visit farmers markets, travel, and am a forever learner. I care deeply about our planet and the people who live on it. I am passionate about helping people feel good and spreading the knowledge I have learned to help support people on their own journey’s.

More about me
I am passionate about helping other people reach their highest level of health. Conventional medicine often leaves patients unheard, uneducated, and lost. Modern medicine is amazing on many levels and is very important for acute and at times chronic problems. Modern medicine has increased our lifespan with use of antibiotics, advanced surgeries (It’s truly amazing!). What is missing though is the focus on expanding health span. We want to focus on health span as this is the focus on being healthy and having optimal health for the longest time possible. My goal is to help people create sustainable health and wellness in their lives by incorporating healthy lifestyle techniques and habits in both mind, body + spirit.
I believe in the power of the therapeutic partnership comes from the idea that patients who are active participants in the development of their plan feel more in control of their own well-being and are more likely to make sustained lifestyle changes to improve their health. I also believe that the practitioner and patient are in partnership.
I believe there is a difference between a teacher + a coach. Teaching is giving content. Coaching is the application of knowledge + content. A teacher gives you the knowledge but the coach helps you apply it. Knowledge isn’t power, it is potential power. You have to learn to live it + apply it to your life. I consider myself a clinician but also a coach. Coaching is also helping someone unlock their inner wisdom, something I believe everyone has ♡
Working with Allie
“I highly recommend Allie Burch. She combines her knowledge and experience in the medical field with a holistic approach. Her ability to understand how all systems of the body are working synergistically provides well rounded, outstanding patient care. She is thorough and easy to speak to and has a grounding, down to earth demeanor. She listens and interprets the patient’s concerns and symptoms, including mental, physical and emotional well being. Allie’s application of Functional Medicine has paved the path for my future health via treatment and regulation of my Hashimoto’s thyroid syndrome. I am grateful to have Allie as a member of our community and as my healthcare provider”
“I really value Allie as part of my health team, first because she works with my whole self and is committed to finding root causes, in preventing issues before they occur and in using food and herbs as medicine. She has recently worked in the Western medical system while at the same time has continually furthered her education in the functional/nutrition field, the combination is invaluable and her commitment to helping individuals find their healthiest self is admirable. You can bring up any idea or theory that you read or wonder about and feel safe in receiving educated feedback you can trust. Allie is 100% committed to her patients and their full well being!”
