“I must say, at first, I raised an eyebrow at this type of inner healing approach. After a couple of sessions of listening and learning, I realized how valuable these techniques are after implementation. My condition had a chronic weekly effect on my body & life that was labouring me in many ways. Now after completing the sessions, I rarely experience that treaded laboring kind of feeling. 

Thank you, Justine, for guiding me through this wonderful journey”

“The link between the brain and chronic health issues is nothing short of amazing, and Justine has the knowledge and experience to explain this connection in a clear and easy-to-understand way as it pertains to gut health.


This course was a great introduction to key topics and has equipped me with the right tools to embark on my healing journey from the inside out. I joined this course to help my digestive issues (severe GERD and gastritis), but the takeaway to my overall health and well-being was tenfold.”

“That it actually does matter! I don't really change my daily intention, but I do try to refer to it several times throughout the day. This is helping me achieve my goal of moving through my day with less tension, thus improving my digestion


The teaching around sitting with uncomfortable emotions/memories and feeling them, naming them, and letting them just be. I am amazed at the effectiveness of this technique - although often, the uncomfortable memory doesn't arise when I have a good chance to sit with it - but I'll get through them all. It is surprising to me how many of these little moments I am holding on to - and re-feeling the 'wince' or emotion from when it first happened. Time to let it go.”

“That I am not crazy. That I am not alone. I learned that the mind is a powerful tool. I learned that there is light at the end of that dark tunnel. I know I still got a long way to go but with the right tools, support and guidance I can get a long way.”

“Where to start? My mornings definitely improved. I experienced "stronger" moments. I "scored" some victories like driving again, and cooking again (for my family), and my mind seemed to be more quiet. Not ending up in an Emergency while in pain was a major victory. Currently, I am journaling about changes and/or improvements that I will send later today or tomorrow.”

“As someone who has struggled with IBS for many, many years, Justine has been a breath of fresh air. My gut has definitely been trying to tell me something! Justine helped me 'tune in' and discover a new approach to managing my chronic conditions. In addition to her kind and loving nature, she has offered me multiple strategies for developing a practice for self-compassion, emotion regulation, a healthier mindset and mindful eating. Her approach is holistic; she provides gentle but firm encouragement at each appointment. She is also well-connected to a community of practitioners who have aided in my healing process. 

 I think my biggest surprise was the work I needed to do on managing my emotions, as they were directly affecting my gut health. Justine helped me connect the stress response to my gut distress, and we worked together to help me slow down and engage in activities that helped down-regulate my nervous system. In turn, this has created a state of well-being that has helped increase my energy levels and vitality, allowing me to finally accept my chronic illness in a loving way.”



“After three years of struggling with infertility and pregnancy loss, my occupation of 6.5 years completely changed. I tried my best to go with the flow and learn a new position/industry, but with all of my personal struggles, I knew I did not have the energy to be successful. My husband and I decided it was best for us to take some time off work to focus on ourselves. It was an extremely difficult decision to make, but I knew it was for the best. 


At this exact time, Justine approached me about doing coaching sessions with her. Perfect timing. She helped me put a plan together to focus on my physical and emotional self. I always looked forward to our weekly conversations! Justine was so attentive and validated my feelings.  She helped me put a plan together of what I wanted my days/weeks/months to look like and how I could get back to feeling more like myself. Justine would help me set goals each week and she would follow up throughout the week to see how things were going, to hold me accountable.  She also provided me with many different tools and suggestions each week to help me reach my goals, but at the same time, she reminded me to be kind to myself and not to put too much pressure on myself that it became stressful.  It’s her countless qualities like listening, caring, encouraging and understanding that makes you want to just open up to her because you can trust her.”


“I have had the pleasure of working with Justine Dowd, who was referred to me by my naturopath. She has been life-changing for me in my journey to healing gut issues I have struggled with for three years. 

Her ability to listen with compassion, extensive knowledge, and nonjudgmental ears makes her a huge asset for anyone wanting to explore the gut-mind connection further. 

For me, Justine has been the “missing link” in moving forward toward self-compassion and overall healing. She is top-notch in her field!!”


You have been my guiding star through all of this, Justine. I have nothing but respect for you and your devotion to your patients/clients. You are beyond gifted in your field.
