Meet Dawna

Optimize Your Total Wellness

Hi, I’m Dawna Rider-Weiss, the founder of Inspired Living.

I’m a Clinical Nutritionist, BodyTalk Practitioner, Whole-Body Healer, Medical Intuitive, Herbalist, and Modern-Day Alchemist.

I help people, like yourself, unlock their highest potential by providing them with a proven, winning formula for reprogramming limiting thoughts that stem from the Viral Voice. First and foremost, my clients achieve this because they genuinely and passionately honor their personal commitment to unlocking their highest potential.

To help them through this delicate process, I use a combination of a scientific, clinical approach to food and herbs while teaching how to understand the brain-gut connection. Anchoring all of this are ancient spiritual practices that I guide my clients through to successfully apply to modern, everyday life.

While I get into more specifics about my journey in my seminars and workshops, what I want to share with you here isn’t some stale bio with a list of all my credentials. My intent is to let you know you’re not alone because I’ve been down the road you’re on. Sometimes, the greatest impact we can have on our fellow human beings is sharing our journey.

“Gemme Shelter” and My Battle Against The Viral Voice

Long before I founded Azna Gluten Free Bakery and then Inspired Living, my life had taken a lot of drastic twist and turns. Some of those include five near-death experiences (NDE) not to mention some very troubling health and financial difficulties.

Many years ago, I found out I had systemic candida. Candida is one of the most common and debilitating health challenges women and men face. Not surprisingly, Candida is what most of my clients come to me to help them with.

The title song to the iconic Rolling Stones song, “Gemme Shelter”, aptly summed up this turbulent period in my life. I was seeking shelter from the chaos swirling inside my body and looking for answers anywhere I could.

I read a library full of self-help, spiritual and health-related books. Like so many people, I tried exercising regularly, and somehow still felt lethargic.

I’d gone militant vegan, stuck in that never-ending detox phase for five years. Saw dozens of doctors, both traditional and alternative, and each one failed me because they were treating me for the symptoms and not the root cause.

The answers to the pain I was experiencing in my body and life, remained elusive. Unable to rid myself of belly fat and fighting erratic mood changes, I was frustrated and feeling totally defeated by circumstances I didn’t fully understand.

Soon, I came to realize what I was up against. I was battling the Viral Voice.

What took me eight and a half months to eradicate can be done in 90-days. That’s not because I have discovered some magical, secretive cure-all.

Unwilling to live a life of ups and downs any longer, I took control of my Viral Voice by understanding the brain-gut connection. I also started turning my attention to being trained in alternative, eastern medical and spiritual practices. This helped me rediscover the power of my Higher Self.

The Viral Voice reflects the collective low-vibrational energy of fungus, yeast, bacteria, and parasites in your body.

The Viral Voice wants to be fed and it’s not always with the most obvious choices of bad foods or toxic drinks, such as popular energy drinks like Red Bull. If you’re health-minded, you may be inclined to drink orange juice and eat things like bananas. The problem is they contain sugar, which keeps the Viral Voice alive, as I came to discover the hard way.

Even though I was in moderation and eating organic, I was not able to cut out all sugars, as I was still unknowingly feeding my Viral Voice parasite sugar. For example, I’d eat some of my scones and smoothies, which is liquid sugar. Unknown to me, at the time, this would only exacerbate the very thing I was working so hard to eradicate out of my system.

For this very reason, if you have been seeking a more harmonious and stress-free life, look no further than the well-being of your gut.

If you’re suffering one of many symptoms of candida and/or want to strengthen your mental acuity, obtain emotional and physical freedom, and deepen your spiritual awareness, I’d be honored to work with you.

Remember to Live Life Inspired!

Today, when it comes to guiding my clients in their journey of eradicating the Viral Voice and being in the driver’s seat of their gut-brain connection, I have access to modern, technological tools, such as the Zyto machine, and I’m a certified partner with Standard Process, to go along with years of nutritional experience. All of this is supported with a deeper inner, spiritual awareness that I didn’t have when I was much younger.

It took me many years and tens of thousands of dollars to uncover the root cause of my emotional and physical pain. It absolutely does not have to take you that much time or money.

When it comes to the work I do with my clients, they know right away we’re going to get to the root cause of what is ailing them. Be it physical, emotional, mental, financial, or spiritually related, I don’t hold back with the raw truth of what is needed to solve their biggest challenges in life.

As dark and as lonely as the journey to living your highest potential can feel at times, there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel. And you know what? That light is your Higher Self.

I look forward to hearing from you. In the meantime, remember to always Live Life Inspired.

“Dawna tells it like it is. I highly recommend her, you will not be disappointed.”

I was referred to Dawna & she is amazing. So glad I made my connection with her!! By nature, I am a huge skeptic, but after only minutes with her, I knew she was the best “witch doctor” (as I lovingly call her) ever. Although I am only a few days into my cleanse, (which by the way is shockingly easy) I feel fantastic. So excited to have her help me on this journey & hopefully more to come!! Best of all, Dawna has a great sense of humor & doesn’t sugarcoat things – she tells it like it is. I highly recommend her, you will not be disappointed.


“Dawna and Inspired Living have helped me start healing.”

I came to Inspired Living with horrible stomach burning and acid reflux. I went to see Dawna and she was nothing but love!!! I can’t stress how grateful I am and how awesome she is. I would lose my mind going through this without her. Thank you so much, Dawna!


“Dawna is kind, caring, thoughtful and will find out exactly what you need to help bring balance and harmony back into your life.”

Dawna is an exceptional individual. She has dedicated her life to making other people happy & healthy. She has touched the lives of many of my friends and associates – and they all say the same thing “Dawna is amazing”. If you want to reinvigorate your life and live truly inspired, you need to see Dawna ASAP!


“My first tune up changed my life!”

Dawna unveiled fears I had not consciously dealt with. Pushing through fear to attain our dreams is what we are all after. I LOVE Dawna and have recommended (maybe even forced) everyone I know to go to see her.


“Dawna is the most loving, understanding, and compassionate health professional.”

I had recently graduated from college when I first saw Dawna and quickly she helped me break free from years of high stress and late nights. I feel more energetic and healthier than ever. She helped me clear chronic acne, reverse stress-related health issues, and just feel awesome overall!


“Dawna actually TEACHES people what they need to know to heal themselves.”

I just started working with Dawna and so much has already shifted positively for me. I was doing so much for my health and still running into issues that were preventing me from fully living and embracing my life. I was addressing my health through a whole foods diet, a supplement protocol and a TON of exploration in different areas of emotional and spiritual growth but was still missing some things.

Dawna has all of the knowledge, intuition and amazing tools and resources to tap into what I need. I know she showed up in my life because she is an integral part of my healing journey. She exudes light, love and healing energy. She is so caring she actually TEACHES people what they need to know to heal themselves. How amazing is that…?

Dawna is also there every step of the way. When you leave your appointment that isn’t it until the next time you see her. She says she’s there for questions and support along the way and she really means it. I can’t say enough good things about Dawna and Inspired Living. I am so grateful that we crossed paths when we did.


“Since working with Dawna to clean up my diet I haven’t had migraines since July 2017!”

I’d suffered from migraines for the last 21 years. Doctors prescribed me all sorts of medications. In my first session with Dawna, she discovered I had a gluten allergy. As long as I stay away from gluten and I’m careful reading my labels I’m fine. Dawna’s encouragement, help, and knowledge have been a lifesaver. I totally love her!!!


“Dawna’s investment in her clients is real, you feel it the first time you meet her!”

Dawna is phenomenal! She leads with so much love and light and provides such a positive environment for personal growth in every way. I’ve never felt more reassured by a professional who also was able to provide factual information about myself, coupled with solutions and a comprehensive long-term plan. She truly wants to see you improve and is there every step of the way to provide help, resources, accountability, and support.
