Brianne Gohlke, MS, RD
Integrative and Functional Nutritionist
Growing up, I was active and participated in a variety of sports, but my diet was far from nourishing, and I was fairly overweight. When I joined the high school swim team, my coach stressed the importance of nutrition for athletic performance, and I began changing my diet. After I saw a dramatic improvement in my times, I realized first-hand the powerful influence diet has in our life and our health. This experience not only encouraged me to fuel and nourish my body with quality food on a daily basis, but it led me to pursue a career as a dietitian.
I have worked as a clinical dietitian in Southern Wisconsin since 2014, and in 2017 I earned my master of science (MS) in Integrative and Functional Nutrition (IFN). As an integrative and functional nutritionist, I am trained to identify and remove barriers that prevent healing and address the underlying cause of a number of illnesses. My recommendations involve many aspects of health, including diet, physical activity, hydration, stress management, sleep, hygiene, supplements, and a variety of mind-body therapies to promote healing and optimal health. Each plan is tailored to a client’s specific needs, preferences, and daily life, making the lifestyle changes realistic and maintainable. I specialize in whole person, individualized care and incorporate a variety of integrative therapies to support overall wellness and vitality.

How I Got My Life Back
The Complete IC Diet Cookbook
In 2006 I was diagnosed with severe interstitial cystitis. The medical community had little to no information and less than hopeful treatment options. I spent ten years making an attempt to manage my symptoms and was in constant and often debilitating pain. I sought alternative remedies as a last resort and eventually I was able to turn a corner. Everyone is unique, and my personal journey involved changes in my diet and lifestyle, along with high-quality supplements. I gauged each change with how my body reacted and after a while, was able to reverse my worst IC symptoms and get my life back.
My own research was coupled with years of trial and error and it has empowered me to better understand my body and the significant roles that diet and lifestyle play in overall health and wellness. There have been many that have contacted me for information. I know that the symptoms of IC can leave you confused and in pain. As an author and someone that has shared the understanding of what you are going through, I am available to share my IC experiences, answer questions, and offer encouragement. It should be noted that due to overwhelming requests, I do have a consulting fee charge.
I am not a licensed member of medicine, and I encourage you to read my books and coordinate with a knowledgeable primary healthcare provider as well as a nutritionist to assist you. Consultations are available for you to ask questions and share your experience.

Integrative and Functional Medicine Health Coach
My bladder pain started at ten years old. At 13 years old, I was admitted overnight in the hospital for a hydrodistention. Unfortunately, I continued to experience intermittent bladder problems over the next three decades, paired with chronic stomach issues. My journey with IC included four hydrodistentions with cystoscopies, numerous bladder instillations, and a surgically implanted Neurostimulator. It wasn’t until my worst bladder flare in my early 50’s that I finally received an official diagnosis of interstitial cystitis.
Upon diagnosis, my urologist handed me the IC diet sheet, and I found it completely overwhelming. After months of experimenting with diet and lifestyle changes, I finally found relief from my bladder pain. This led me to enroll in the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. After receiving my health coaching certification from IIN, I craved a deeper understanding of the interconnections of the human body.
My need to understand the reason behind my bladder and digestive issues led me to study functional medicine. I’m currently in my second year studying functional medicine at the School of Applied Functional Medicine. I am proud to share that my IC has been in complete remission for over four years now.
It’s my passion to help others identify what’s causing their symptoms and support their goals to remission using a customized protocol based on their unique needs and lifestyle. My role is to educate my clients to discover how to make lasting changes providing them with tools, support, and accountability. I do not diagnosis or treat disease; instead, I help you discover your body’s ability to heal itself. Because wellness is a process, I work with clients in-depth over a minimum of four weeks, which allows time to work through root causes and opens the door to real and lasting change in the lives of my clients.
