Palmer Kippola is an author, speaker, autoimmune recovery advocate and certified functional medicine health coach. When she was 19, Palmer was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Thus began her journey of self-healing. In 2010, she completely reversed her MS and is symptom and medication free.

She founded healingisfreedom.com as an online resource to inspire, educate and empower people who seek not only freedom from autoimmune conditions but also those looking to achieve optimal health.

Palmer has taken courses with the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), Apex Energetics, received certification as a Functional Medicine Health Coach and HeartMath® mentor, completed 100+ hours of neurofeedback brain training, and studied under leading experts in nutrition, functional, holistic, energy medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Today Palmer collaborates with functional medicine practitioners and consults with people who seek to heal from or prevent autoimmune conditions. She is also an advisor to Documenting Hope, a scientific initiative to study and record the recovery of children with chronic illness.

When she’s not learning, writing, collaborating or speaking about finding freedom from autoimmune conditions, she might be found hiking in the hills, doing yoga or HIIT workouts, cooking healthy meals, connecting with friends and family, and laughing as much as possible.
