Donna Beydoun Mazzola
Donna Mazzola, PharmD, MS, is a pharmacist, nutritionist, and the creator of @Dr.AutoImmuneGirl, a quickly scaling platform that speaks to all things immunity and autoimmunity. She has always had a fascination with natural healing and preventative care. After obtaining a Doctorate in Pharmacy, Donna realized that medicine has a place in healing, but it’s the balance between nutrition and medicine that impacts disease. This fascination became an obsession after a personal diagnosis with Hashimoto’s Disease in 2015. Her disease pushed her to seek answers and identify the root causes related to the rise in autoimmune and other inflammatory chronic conditions. On this journey, she obtained a master’s degree in Functional Medicine and Human Nutrition and created Dr.AutoimmuneGirl, a platform designed to empower people with the knowledge to take control of their health. Donna is on a mission to educate the world on the healing powers of food and give meaning to the concept of food as medicine. She runs the blog drautoimmunuegirl.com to share reputable scientific information related to nutrition and health. Follow her on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram @drautoimmunegirl.
