On episode 323 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews Ashley Durant, a board-certified holistic nurse and transformational wellness coach with specific expertise in guiding clients through the labyrinth of autoimmune illness. Ashley speaks from her own personal experience, and she offers tools and strategies for overcoming the challenges of autoimmune illness in a complex 21st-century world and medical-industrial complex.

Ashley is a Registered Nurse from Maryland. She is board-certified through the AHNA as a holistic nurse and health and wellness nurse coach. She is the founder and transformational wellness coach at Deeply Rooted Wellness LLC. Her passion is to destroy the mentality that illness only takes away, but that it rather serves as an invitation to really check in with life and how you are living it, loving yourself, and interacting with the world around you.

Empowering women (and men too!) to find their fierce, advocate for themselves and their families’ wellbeing while living an abundant, razor-sharp focused life of intention and present-mindedness, despite their diagnosis or circumstances, is Ashley’s calling. Her specialty is allergen-friendly eating, thyroid disease, autoimmune disease, anxiety, mindfulness, environmental impacts on health, boundaries, emotional mastery, holistic healing, emotional trauma, and soul-deep self-care.

Ashley is inspired from her own journey of falling through the cracks of the very healthcare system she worked in as she was on her own mystery diagnosis journey. Specifically, the doctor who told her it was impossible to reverse her autoimmune disease, whose doubt inspired her to take a holistic approach and challenge that ideal. Currently, her autoimmune markers have come down from over 880 to 50, which is about 18 points from remission. She offers trauma-aware care and is passionate about making that a universal norm in healthcare. Bridging the gap between evidence-based care and holistic approaches at a highly individualized level with a collaborative healthcare team is what Ashley believes will shift the paradigm of healthcare to a healthier place.
