Neda

Neda Smith

Founder of Gut Harmony, Neda is a certified Level III Colon Hydrotherapist and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner. Motivated to help others due to her lifelong struggles with abdominal discomfort and gastric issues, Neda’s goal is to help clients improve their digestive function. She has completed multiple advanced studies in the area of intestinal gut disease and other gut related autoimmune disorders with expertise in colon hydrotherapy, cleansing, and nutritional supplements.

Michele Stanford

Michele is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and Certified Health Coach. Doctors failed her, repeatedly, so she was forced to seek and to find the answers to her health issues on her own. This led her on a path of discovery, and on a mission to help others. Michele’s functional approach to health begins with teaching her clients about the root cause of dysfunction and guiding them to incorporate lifestyle changes. She focuses on gut health, nutrient sufficiency, and maximizing the ability of the body to bring balance to the physical and emotional needs of the client.  

Michele maintains continuing education in different areas of health with a focus on whole-body wellness, and herbalism.  As well, Michele holds a Master of Education from Liberty University. She is the author of Informed Consent: Critical Truths Essential to Your Health and to the Health of Future Generations, available wherever books are sold.

Her motto is “change your health, change your life, change the world.”

Tanesha Rice

Tanesha is a former ABA clinician who enjoys making a difference in the lives of others.

Kelly Hancharick

As a former Registered Nurse, Kelly delivers a professional and caring attitude to clients. Through the challenges she has faced as cancer survivor and thyroid patient, she now recognizes the important role gut health has on one’s overall health, and credits Gut Harmony for changing her life for the better.

Originally from Pennsylvania, Kelly moved to SC in 2021 with her husband, three children and family dog. Now a key member of the Gut Harmony team, she looks forward to assisting clients with GI concerns whether new to “getting gut healthy” or returning time and again.

Ashley Thompson

Ashley helps individuals connect with their physical, mental and spiritual aspects of health. Motivated by her own struggles with body positivity, she thrives on helping others recover from food rules and disordered eating to regain satisfaction of food nourishment and movement. 

With a Bachelor of Science, she finds ways to help people improve their gut health and energy levels by developing sustainable self-care practices.
