Brandi Mackenzie

Brandi Mackenzie is a nervous system coach, creator of The Biology of Business™, and the author of Love Your Gut: A Six-Week Guide to Restoring Your Nutrition and Trusting Your Intuition.

After ten years as a nutrition coach, primarily serving other coaches, Brandi began studying trauma and the nervous system. She was amazed at how quickly her clients were getting results and overcoming long standing health challenges and behavioral patterns by supporting their nervous system.

What she didn’t expect was to notice the way nervous system patterns were actually playing out in their businesses—even the coaches who were trained in trauma. This changed everything because once she saw it, she couldn’t un-see it!

It was then Brandi realized that business could be done differently, and that you could use your body's biology to change the patterns of behavior that are subconsciously running your business.

Brandi teaches you to understand your nervous system patterns so you can feel more regulated and resolve trauma in your body on your own—without relying on outside resources, tools, or long term therapies. She offers a health-life-business approach so you can support everything in one place. Because, it's all connected through your biology.

What does your nervous system have to do with business?

On the most basic level, your body drives your behaviors and your behaviors drive your business.

When you're trying to approach things differently in your life and biz, your body senses that as unfamiliar.

Unfamiliar will often feel unsafe to your nervous system.

I consider your nervous system the "response center" of your body and since it doesn't know the difference between personal growth and a true threat, it will bring up old "protective" mechanisms to keep you safe from that unfamiliarity. These become your default nervous system patterns.

These patterns show up as self doubt, procrastination, perfectionism, and overwhelm—all of which keep you stuck. And, they won't change with affirmations or "changing your mindset."

But, you can work with your nervous system through your body to create an inner sense of safety, to unravel these patterns, and feel safe enough to grow!

Your business is a reflection of your nervous system. Old trauma patterns will show up.

Clients say they get better results in a single session than they have in years of therapy...

“Working with Brandi truly changed my life. I have gotten more out of my time with her than anything else I have tried, and I have tried almost everything.”


While transitioning my therapy practice to a coaching business, I would get really down about my capabilities as a coach, constantly doubting myself. Brandi helped me realize how much my nervous system got in the way of my confidence. After working together, it clicked just how awesome I am. I realize I have a really beautiful skillset and I really do help people.


Before working with Brandi, I felt stressed out and overwhelmed with my day to day life. I was constantly questioning if I was on the right path and felt like I had to do things the “experts” taught in my coaching business.

Brandi helped me realize this was a pattern of perfectionism that was completely draining and paralyzing me.

She helped me calm my nervous system and step into a feeling of ease that I'd never felt before. Now, I’m building my business my way, with a newfound confidence.

After feeling stuck for months, I was able to overcome patterns of imposter syndrome, and realize I don't have to do more to be enough. I am making more confident decisions in my business and even got on video for the first time!


Everything felt too big and too hard in my business, and I always had an excuse to not focus on what I needed to do. I realized that the overwhelm I was experiencing came from my nervous system. Now I have tools to move forward rather than feel buried. I know how to support my system to help the growth of my business and show up for my clients.


I was taking on every client that inquired even when they weren’t the right fit. It left me feeling drained, resentful and unfulfilled. Brandi helped me see this was a pattern of self doubt—telling myself I wouldn’t get more clients and scared to turn down income. Now I feel more confident and safe to choose the clients I can best help.

I had been staying busy but not feeling like I was getting anywhere in my business. Brandi helped me realize the “busy work” was a coping mechanism to feel productive when I was actually feeling overwhelmed and unsure of myself. Now I understand how this came from my nervous system and how to support it so things will flow more smoothly in business, and in my life!


I became aware (in real time) of how stressed I was and Brandi provided simple techniques to reduce stress levels and decrease the pain I was feeling, which helped rejuvenate me.

I thought I felt stuck because I didn't have enough time or energy, now I realize that my nervous system was depleting me. I was able to make progress as I became aware of the problem and some simple adjustments made it feel easier to move forward in my business.

Brandi seamlessly integrated evidence-based research into easily understandable language. The mixture of entrepreneurship and regulating the nervous system is a unique combination.
