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 received a diagnosis of severe interstitial cystitis, and I quickly realized that the medical community had limited information and treatment options for this condition. Over the course of ten years, I struggled to manage my symptoms and endured constant, debilitating pain. As a last resort, I turned to alternative remedies, and eventually, I found a way to turn the corner and regain control of my health.
Through my journey, I made changes in my diet and lifestyle and incorporated high-quality supplements, carefully gauging how my body reacted to each change. It was a process of trial and error, but over time, I was able to reverse even my worst IC symptoms.
Through my research and years of experience, I have gained a deep understanding of the significant roles that diet and lifestyle play in overall health and wellness. I know firsthand how confusing and painful the symptoms of interstitial cystitis can be, and I am here to offer support. I am available to share insights, answer questions, provide encouragement, and help others uncover their root causes and establish a plan of action to address them.
Please note that I charge a consulting fee for my services due to overwhelming requests. I am not a licensed healthcare professional, and I strongly encourage you to read my books and work in coordination with a knowledgeable healthcare provider, pelvic physical therapist, and nutritionist to support your health journey. Let’s work together to find the best path toward wellness.
