Meet River Yeo

Meet your GAPS Practitioner and Nutritional Health Coach

As an RN BSN with nursing experience, I am not only a GAPS coach, but a certified GAPS practitioner trained by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, the creator of the GAPS protocol. This protocol was developed from a rich bed of research and practical clinical experience and as it turns out- is full of forgotten traditional wisdom! My job as a GAPS practitioner is to create a custom path for you through this protocol according to your individual needs. I am here to assist you with the mitigation of any detox reactions, sugar crashes, and other ups and downs you may experience as your body rebalances itself and rebuilds.

Nice to meet cha!

I am excited to share the skills I learned which helped me climb my way out of a pit of severe chronic fatigue, leaky gut syndrome, and autoimmunity. It also helped me to give my little one their best chance at a leg up from the poor microbiome I was born with.


Re-learning how to cook, clean, and live in a totally new way was SO much work. I would have given up completely if I didn't have a friend alongside me who understood why I was doing what I was doing and encourage me to keep going. For me, that was my husband (and hero) Jabez Yeo.


I am excited to create a space where you can find the support you need, whether it's through individual coaching or group discussion. You don't need to walk this road alone. Call me your Wellness Sherpa because together we're going to find that same trail that got me out of the woods!

Here's my Story...


I grew up the oldest of 4, taking care of our very sick momma, who did not have a good experience swimming through a health care system that couldn't help her. So, I went to nursing school to see if I could make a difference in the care people experience.


As a nurse, I met many patients like my mom that the system simply couldn't help. Medications treat symptoms but only food and lifestyle change can affect the root cause.


I started to watch my own health slip down the path of my mom's. I was 22 and felt sick and tired ALL. THE. TIME.

I tried energy drinks with ginseng and B12,

I tried going gluten free (which helped a little),

I tried Auto Immune Protocol (which was exhausting and left me hungry all the time),

I tried antidepressants for a short time (which didn't help at all)

Finally, I found Dr. Natasha Campbell McBride's Gut and Psychology Syndrome book. This book gave me my life back and got me back on the right track. I learned that the power to heal my body was there all along hidden in the foods provided by God's beautiful creation. After a year of faithfully building my health through sweat and tears in the kitchen, I transitioned off of GAPS to a diet guided by the Weston A Price Association's recommendations - just in the nick of time because the Lord has blessed Jabez and I with our first baby!


I look forward to hearing about your health journey and seeing it unfold!


"Trust in the Lord with all your heart

and lean not on your own understanding;

in all your ways submit to him,

and he will make your paths straight."
