About Dr. Marilu Almeida Hunt


Are you constantly stressed out?

Not sleeping well?

Plagued by brain fog?

Suffering from stomach pain, bloating, gas or constipation?

Your body is trying to tell you something.

And it’s not “I want more medication, please!”

It’s time to really listen and give your body what it needs to heal itself and thrive.

Hi, I’m Dr. Marilu Almeida Hunt, Pharm.D.

I know a lot about what our bodies need to feel better, seeing as I worked in a hospital for 17 years as a Clinical Manager and the Director of Pharmacy.

I also spent nearly two decades serving as an adjunct professor at universities throughout the country and assisted pharmacy students with their clinical internships. This is where I fine-tuned my coaching skills and ability to engage with students in a way that makes them feel comfortable to open up with me.

Years of clinical work in the hospital and being on-call 24/7 to help sick patients taught me a tremendous amount about disease management.

But my medical experience also revealed something shocking:

Our healthcare system is failing us. It’s moving in the wrong direction.

Managing symptoms and disease with medication is not healthcare—it’s sickcare.

If you are already feeling sick—NOW is the perfect time to get a handle on it before it gets worse.

Hiring me as your health coach puts you in the driver’s seat so you can turn your health around. You’ll find out how to create robust health that doesn’t requirement “management”—because your body is running and thriving the way it’s designed to.

Look, I know you’re busy. Work is crazy stressful. You have a million things going on. You don’t have time (or the patience) to see more doctors who tell you nothing’s wrong and send you home with extra strength antacid.

You just want to feel better. 

I totally understand.

You see, I’m not just a Pharm. D. I’m also a mom! My college-aged kids have dealt with their fair share of digestive issues, symptoms, doctor’s visits, urgent care visits, “normal” tests, and zero answers. It’s so frustrating. Believe me, I know.

I know what it’s like to be put through the ringer. But I also know the way out of it. I created this business because no one should have to suffer with symptoms that suck the joy out of life.


I’m here to help parents like you take the stress off your shoulders, find the answers you seek, and cultivate better health from the inside out.
