Melissa is very passionate about nutrition and optimal health. She has empathy and compassion for people going through health challenges after struggling with her own health issues. The stress of a busy litigation practice, having two sets of twins, and struggling with food addiction issues all contributed to her health problems. After spending years and thousands of dollars searching for answers and treatment from conventional medicine, she began studying functional medicine. Through this process, she overcame her food addiction and worked through restoring her adrenal, gastrointestinal, and brain health naturally. It has been a journey and is still being lived out every day.
Melissa is board certified as a Holistic Health Practitioner by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. She is a member of the International Association of Health Coaches and the Association of Health Coaches for Christ. For Melissa, health coaching is a ministry.

Four years ago my health gradually started deteriorating with symptoms of respiratory issues, poor digestion, constipation, food sensitivities, fatigue, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and brain fog. I spent thousands of dollars going from doctor to doctor and getting several different diagnoses, along with various treatments and medications, but felt very little improvement with my symptoms. I was beginning to feel hopeless as to whether I would ever feel normal again.
Through the recommendation of a friend, I made an appointment with a naturopath/chiropractor located 90 minutes from where I live. After a few visits with her, she felt very confident that I was dealing with mold toxicity due to hidden mold in our apartment. Through answered prayers, we found a totally renovated apartment and moved in right away. I was very sick with my weight dropping to 98 lbs and decided I could no longer keep making the 3 hr. round trips to the naturopath and started my search online for a health coach.
By the grace of God, I discovered Melissa on Dr. David Jockers' website and set up an initial consultation with her. I felt very at ease and comfortable with her and thus began the journey of taking back my health! She ordered specific tests for my situation and got me started on a nutritional plan and supplements. After having worked in a laboratory setting at our local hospital for many years, I was amazed at Melissa's knowledge on laboratory testing and reviewing test results. I have had Melissa as my health coach two different times in the last few years and she has been a major part of me regaining my health. I learned so much through our conversations and I have many tools now to maintain my regained health status.
She always encouraged me and gave me hope on days when I was really down. I always felt reassured and motivated after our conversations. Living a healthy lifestyle can sometimes be challenging, but it's so worth it to feel good physically and mentally. Melissa helped me realize this and I highly recommend her if you are struggling with health issues and want to take a more natural approach to regaining your health. I am so very thankful and blessedto have connected with her. It's GOOD to feel GOOD again!
Melissa! Sherri L.
I had severe swallowing issues for 8 years and was struggling a lot with my health. I was depleted in vitamins and minerals and severly malnurished. There were many days that I was so dehydrated, that it would cause me to be weak, light headed and exhausted by the end of the day. I was depressed because of it and felt like I wasn't able to be there for my husband and 3 small children like I wanted. I had gone to several doctors, trying to figure out what was wrong with me, but none of them could seem to find an answer. I remember being very depressed during those really bad swallowing days and wondering if I would have to deal with this for the rest of my life. I prayed for answers and was researching different functional doctors and found Melissa. We set up a consultation with her and were so thankful how she was very knowledgeable and caring. She was a tremendous help by recommending some testing for me and helped find out that I am severely allergic to mold. I never ever would have thought of that!!!
She was not only helpful in figuring it out but then also in helping us figure out a plan and what to do about it so I can feel better. We removed mold from our home the best we can and found out that our house had mold under the toilets in both bathrooms and in our crawl space. Melissa recommended some detox pills to help my body get rid of the mold and i changed my diet by avoiding certain foods higher in mold. I am so much better now and am so thankful I finally feel normal again!!! I will forever be grateful to Melissa and how she helped me so that I can have more energy and life again! One of the best gifts you could ever receive is to have your health back! Don't wait 8 years to reach out like I did. The best decision I made was to contact Melissa!
Approaching my 70th birthday, I realized I needed to take my health seriously and make choices that would provide healing for the causes of my out-of-range biomarkers. I was tired of treating the symptoms. After being challenged with the consequences of viruses and bacteria in my body, I was privileged to watch and learn about the latest research, diagnosis and treatment for Lyme disease. This lead me to Melissa Nohr, who, with the Dr. Jockers Team, has provided the means for me to make the proper lifestyle changes through wonderful education and coaching, that has given me the ability to take control of my life and know that I am doing everything I can to promote health in my body. Functional Medicine/Coaching is healthcare. Melissa has been my guide, coach, accountability healer and cheerleader. I have learned so much and being a lifelong learner know this is just the beginning. Though I am on a limited, fixed income, I am spending less time and money on my health by knowing the causes for out of range biomarkers and consuming the proper nutrition to heal. This is giving me the ability to live my healthiest life. Thank you Melissa!
I cannot say enough good things about Melissa Nohr. I contacted her to help me with an autoimmune disorder. She was willing to help me figure out the root cause, advise on testing and review the test results as soon as they became available. She also advised me on diet and necessary supplements. She has so much knowledge and does ongoing research to help find answers for whatever your issue is. One of the best things about Melissa is that you can tell how much she cares. She's always available, easy to reach and responds quickly! Thank you Melissa for caring and for always being there to help find answers and solutions!
Melissa coached me through a very difficult time with my health. For 10 years I have struggled with joint pain, fatigue, and food sensitivities. I used natural methods and supplementation with great results. But my gut health went out of control and I suddenly had a host of symptoms I had never dealt with before. I discovered Dr. Jockers Clinic online and turned to them for help. Melissa was patient and thorough and recommended testing that revealed SIBO and probable histamine intolerance. She recommended an elemental diet along with a protocol of Dr Jockers supplements. After several months of strict adherence to the plan, I was able to start reintroducing a few foods, and eventually have been able to reintroduce almost all food, with no more GI symptoms! This journey was very scary to go through, but I praise God and thank Melissa for seeing me through to a healthier and happier future!
I am Angela, and I am 53 years old. My journey began in October of 2019. I was diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma and cysts on both kidneys. I started seeing a nephrologist in my hometown and did a lot of testing. The nephrologist looked over my scans, consulted with his colleagues, and decided that the best option would be to take out both kidneys.
During this time, I had talked with my brother Maurice who lives in Georgia. He had been working with Dr. Jockers at Exodus Health Center in Atlanta. My brother recommended that I give them a call. In February 2020, I started working with Melissa Nohr. She is a certified health practitioner with Dr. Jockers. Melissa gathered my health information and customized a health plan for me to follow. I also started Dr. Jockers’ Cancer Cleanse Program. I had more energy and my sleep improved.
I decided to consult with another nephrologist, and I had surgery with him on May 13th. After my surgery was complete, the doctor informed me that more than half of my right kidney was saved, and my left kidney did not need surgery. This was joyous news. I can't thank God enough for his grace. I want to thank my family, Melissa and Dr. Jockers for the program, and all of the prayer Warriors! By his stripes I am healed. I am Angela and this is my testimony.
My health journey
My name is Jessine Bukowski and about seven years ago we moved into a house with mold. Slowly my health started to decline. I went from an avid runner to someone who couldn’t get off the couch. I remember before my health took a turn, my family used to call me the energizer bunny. But suddenly It took all my energy just to get out of bed every morning. I had just turned twenty-four and I felt like I was eighty-five. And with each passing year, my symptoms worsened. Some of my symptoms included: bloated stomach (I looked like I was six months pregnant!), hair loss, weight gain (20+ pounds), depression, major fatigue, vomiting (for no reason - I remember on several occasions I’d throw up and then go to work), I couldn’t exercise like I used to, joint pain, vertigo, and digestive upset.
I remember at one point I was curled up on the couch and I thought I was going to die. Finally, after several years and several doctors later, we figured out it was the mold making me sick. But even after we got the mold out of our house, it wasn’t until I met Melissa and went through her protocol did I really start to heal! God brought Dr. Jockers and Melissa into my life right when I needed them the most. Today, I feel better than I have felt in five years! I am able to exercise again! I feel young again! It was like I got my life back. I still remember crying out to the Lord every day and asking Him to heal me. Sometimes I thought I’d never be healed. But I did. It’s almost unbelievable. Every time I go for a run, I want to cry because I never thought I’d be able to run again. I used to take my health for granted and now I thank God every morning that I can get out of bed and live my life. My health journey isn’t over, but I am well on my way! Thank you Melissa for everything! Thank you for believing in God’s power to heal and for encouraging me and providing my body with what it needed.
Dear Melissa, thank you for your consultation in regards to my severe diarrhea! You poured so much knowledge and generous (and at the same time gentle) guidance! Bringing to my attention all the natural remedies that I can apply and the miracle happened! No diarrhea for three weeks! After two months of pharmaceutical protocols with many different antibiotics and a diet with no nutritional value of potatoes, rice, and chicken without success!! Thank you 🙏 again for the long distance consultation Zoom! Thank you dr.Jockers for encouraging me to consult with Melissa! She is a great asset for your team!

I am so grateful for the coaching relationship that I have with Melissa. After I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I started to research holistic, natural treatment alternatives. I found Dr. Jockers’ website and was encouraged by the wealth of positive, encouraging, and faith-filled information. Desiring a personal connection with a supportive coach, I contacted the Exodus Health Center and was given Melissa’s contact information to set up Skype coaching calls.
I consider myself blessed to have met Melissa. She is very gracious, compassionate, and motivating – and incredibly knowledgeable. Melissa took the time to understand my health history and designed a customized health plan for me, which I am 100% committed to along my healing journey. She is helping me understand the root of my health issues and encourages me to make the right decisions moving forward. I thank God for putting Melissa in my path, and highly recommend her to anyone looking for guidance and support with their health.
I can’t say enough about the help I’ve received from Melissa Nohr. I’ve suffered for years with UTI’s and I was tired of going to the doctors for antibiotics, just to have the UTI come right back. I knew there had to be a root cause and I started praying about it. I truly believe the Lord led me to Dr. Jockers website. I started communicating with Melissa via phone and emails in 2018. She really cares about getting to the root cause of your health issue and immediately starts working on a protocol for you. Anytime I had concerns or questions she was quick to respond with answers. It was such a relief just to know someone was really walking alongside me on my path to finding answers and healing. Now I can’t remember when I last had a UTI! I praise the Lord and I thank him for caring and knowledgeable people like Melissa and Dr. Jockers!

Melissa Nohr was recommended to me by my sister over a year ago. She has been such a big help to my family. I cannot say enough about how sweet and caring and knowledgeable she is. My son was having some problems and after some testing and talking with her, she sent us a protocol to follow with supplements, diet, and lots of information. She really helped him when nobody else was able to. Since then, she has always been there either by phone or email to answer any questions or help in any way she can. I feel like she really has a caring heart for people. Anytime I have a question, I know I can email her and she will always respond very quickly. Whenever I’ve talked with her on the phone, she really listens to what I am saying. I can’t even say enough good things about her. If you are looking for a health coach to get you on the right track, I highly recommend her. She has truly been a blessing to my family.

After three years of traumatic experiences, I was physically and mentally exhausted and in the winter of 2019, I was diagnosed with a thyroid problem. I went from the couch to the bed and traditional medicine was not helping me. I was desperate and determined to get well. I prayed a lot and I searched the internet looking for someone who knew how to treat thyroid problems. I found Dr. Jocker's web page and Melissa Nohr. She has been there for me every step of the way to answer all of my questions and give me the support I needed. After lab tests, a new diet and a customized health plan, I am on the road to recovery. It has only been four months but I now have the energy to exercise, hike and enjoy life again. The plan is costly but it is worth every penny. In April of 2019 I felt that I was dying and today I know that I will meet my goals of being medication free and healthy again.
After years of seeing various functional and integrative practitioners for multiple health issues, I still had several problems and no one was able to figure out the root causes. I finally ordered a lab test myself and discovered an infection. Because I had been reading Dr. Jocker’s website for a couple of years, I set up a consult with Melissa not knowing if it would actually be helpful or just wasted money and time. I was pleasantly surprised. Melissa was very courteous, professional, and knowledgeable. She reviewed my prior labs and set up a protocol using diet and supplements to help. She continued to monitor my health and answer any questions or make modifications as needed. I am so thankful that I am feeling better now, having more energy and no digestive issues. If you’re trying to find answers for your own health issues and want support and guidance, I would definitely recommend Melissa.
My experience with Melissa has truly been a blessing. After years of suffering with recurring episodes of kidney stones every couple months, I was becoming frustrated with not knowing why this was happening. I was desperate to get to the root cause of the problem especially because I am a healthy person overall, or so I thought. I came across Melissa on an online video and was right away impressed by her knowledge but especially by her caring and compassionate personality. I reached out to her for help, she was very quick to respond and was willing to help. Melissa made diet and supplement recommendations during the initial consultation which helped right away. I opted for 2 of the recommended lab tests and when the results were in Melissa contacted me right away with the results. Turns out I was not quite as healthy as I thought, but after following Melissa's recommendations for several months I can feel a tremendous improvement in my overall health. I am grateful to have had such a pleasant experience. She continues to follow up and checks in to see how things are going and to answer any questions. I would highly recommend Melissa to anyone in need of guidance and support for any nutrition or health issue.
Melissa and I developed a coach/client relationship and it has been very rewarding. Melissa has helped me with motivation and support and created a health plan for me. She is a warm and caring individual that clearly comes through in our phone contact. She has made various accommodations for me that has afforded me to keep going. I have been blessed to have her as my nutrition coach.

Five Star Rating:
Knowing that Melissa is an attorney, I expected her to be an all-business, no-nonsense kind of person. When I actually got to sit down with her, I found her to be warm and caring, someone who could actually empathize with my own health struggles. She is frank and direct, and she is also kind, patient, knowledgeable, efficient, hard-working, and, so important, she has integrity.
After years of trying to figure out my condition, having pretty much given up on health care professionals - conventional and complementary/alternative, it feels great to have someone in my corner who can recommend science-based testing, and then recommend various remedies based on that testing. No more guess work. No more reading scores of books and watching an equal number of health programs seeking answers. I am convinced that I’m on the last leg of this 30 plus year journey, and that Melissa is well able to coach me to restored health. I am grateful to the Lord for His guidance to this place of healing.
And although I haven’t met Dr. Jockers, I believe him to be a kind and generous human being, willing to share a storehouse of knowledge with those who need it. Before I contacted anyone at Exodus Health Center, Dr. Jockers was incredibly helpful by providing a ton of “free” information on his website. That speaks volumes.
An aside: In evaluating some recent blood work, Melissa found a condition of which I was completely unaware. We’re hoping some natural remedies will help. The people who actually ordered the blood work had missed it. Whew! Potentially dodged a bullet. Pat M
"Melissa was there for me when I needed it most and got me on the right track. She helped me find a solution to health issues that suddenly happened and disrupted my life!" Sheri W
"Melissa is wonderful! I met with her a week ago and she spent time talking with me and then wrote up a plan and I am much better already! Also, whenever I e-mail her with a question she always responds quickly. She is passionate about helping others." Linda H
Melissa's kind and thoughtful spirit is so soothing in this process. I know she truly wants to help establish deep and long lasting wellness in her clients' lives. I'm grateful for her experience, knowledge and true concern. Anna S.
I want to share my wonderful experience with Melissa Nohr as my health coach/advocate. When I first consulted with her I was in so much pain and nothing I was doing seemed to make any difference. I was so desperate that I almost broke my promise to myself and contemplated going to Kaiser. Did not want to get into a "medical protocol" as I have watched my friends health completely deteriorate with doctor care(ie:many prescriptions-each leading to worsening consequences).
In my 1st consultation with Melissa she recommended coconut milk and protein powder until she completed my personal plan. A MIRACLE!!! The absence of pain was immediate and with my personal plan and selected supplements, has allowed my to rejoin the human race and take care of my day to day needs. I went from not knowing what to do, to having someone to guide me every step of my recovery. I was very honest about things that may have caused my problems. Melissa does not judge and is so understanding. I have had millions of questions which I email and always get a fast response with helpful suggestions.
I wish I had found her sooner as I could have avoided a difficult 2017. But now 2018 looks like it will be healthy and happy.

I subscribed to the ketogenic summit, and I was so fascinated by the quality of experts speakers. They were all such an inspiration to me that I decided to embark upon the Ketogenic lifestyle alone. But within a month, I became ill with terrible symptoms, Keto flu.
Out of desperation, I searched for the ketoedge product and enquired via web chat. That was when I met Melissa. Melissa saved me. She is so inspirational, supportive and ever so caring. On one occasion, I was about to give up on this lifestyle because I was hungry all the time. But with Melissa’s expert support she encouraged me to carry on, and I am so glad that I listened. Another grateful act by Melissa was during my product advice. I was so glad she suggested that I should increase my carbohydrate load on certain days in order to reduce my symptoms.
Melissa is an excellent coach!
