Joanne Pronger Faulkner

I am a high-vibin' autoimmune warrior, dog mom, international best-selling published author (x3), Caribbean dreamer, and plant-based foodie.

After suffering for many years with complex regional pain syndrome, systemic lupus, hypothyroidism, and mixed connective tissue disease, I managed to turn my health around and am now helping others do the same.

I am a Body Healing Coach, Nutrition Coach (PN1), and Aromatherapist. I published The Autoimmune Warrior's Healing Key in early 2021, about my autoimmune conditions and how I was able to figure out a way to turn my health around.

I was also a co-author in a May 2021 collaboration called The Truth About Success, and in October 2021 I released my own collaboration with 20 other women from 7 countries. Absolute Will is about women and their health struggles, using their willpower to get through some of their darkest times. This book went #1 Best Seller in 7 categories and #1 New Release in 26 categories within the first 3 weeks. 

I share different pieces of my health journey in each of these books with the hope that it will be inspiring to other autoimmune warriors who don't believe they are capable of changing their circumstances. It's time to change that narrative.

I offer a free facebook group called Holistic Healing for Autoimmune Warriors, and I also offer a holistic healing course/program, and one-on-one coaching for autoimmune warriors who are ready to take action and get their health back on track.

I also publish a blog on my website about autoimmune-related issues in relation to "self-help health," relationships and finances (I have a Bachelor of Commerce degree and was a financial analyst and policy analyst in my former career). Website:

Clients who choose to work with me get a holistic, well-rounded, science-based approach along with my unique perspective in understanding just how debilitating it is to struggle with autoimmune disease. I don't wish that on anyone, which is why it's my mission to help thousands of autoimmune warriors reclaim their health and get their life back too.

What people say


This is for anyone looking for an amazing life coach. Jo came into my life at a very uncertain time and for that I am so grateful.

You know the quote, "when the student is ready the teacher will appear"? Yes, that's Jo for me. I needed to get back on track and in six weeks she has helped with shifting my mindset, encouraging me to get my body moving, and because I was in a diet breakup mode it has been so helpful to hear her knowledge on eating healthy.

I have enjoyed working with Jo. She's definitely an amazing life coach that I highly recommend.

Thank you Jo from the bottom of my heart....
I am currently halfway through my coaching sessions with the amazing Jo Pronger Faulkner. I am blown away that I am seeing life changing improvements already. For the first time in two years, I have not had a crippling pain in my legs! The pain would often bring me to tears and render me unable to stand or walk longer distances. After 25 years of suffering with IBS I now have relief. Even the top GI doctors were not able to help me.

Jo is just as excited as I am with the changes I have seen. Having weekly meetings has helped keep me on track and learn the skills needed to take control of my health. I finally have hope again for today and the future, which is something I had lost along the way. I am starting to participate in activities with my family instead of being a bystander to my own life.

I am so thankful I found Jo and got to learn directly from her. She has a genuine and caring approach that puts you at ease. How often do we get to work with someone who has walked in our footsteps? If you want to learn how to change your mindset, how to stop being sick and tired of being sick and tired all the time, and self-healing, then I highly recommend her individual coaching sessions.

I feel so empowered that I no longer rely on others for my health. I hold the tools and the power to make changes myself. We all deserve to be happy and healthy. I am finally on the right path to wellness. Thank you, Jo!
