Helping you heal through healthy habits!
Here at Daily Apple Wellness Center we believe that you can feel GOOD every single day! We believe that the way to make this happen is to bring balance to the entire body, mind, and spirit. We offer functional medicine programs, tailored to your specific needs, to heal your physical body. We offer behavior coaching from an enneagram perspective to heal your mind. We offer BodyTalk to heal the spirit (energetic body). You will be amazed at how you can live your BEST life by bringing balance to the entire body, mind, and spirit.
We strive to uncover the true causes of your chronic diseases and other health issues. When we do this we will address the root cause of the disease and not merely treat the symptoms! In this way we won't just cover up your health problems, we will restore health to your body for good!
If you have been suffering from a health ailment for a long time, if you have been told that your labs are “normal”, if you just plain do not feel good most days and do not know why; a functional medicine approach could help you! If you want to be proactive about your health and reduce the need for medications then we can help with customized supplement programs, customized diets, health coaching, and lifestyle changes.
Do you wish you knew what makes you…you? Do you ever wonder why you behave the way you do?
Behavior coaching from an enneagram perspective helps us understand our internal wiring that has us on autopilot. We are usually reacting to the world around us without thinking about how we reacted, and we usually don’t know WHY we reacted the way we did. Once we see how this works, we can rewire.
Behavior coaching from an enneagram perspective is a framework for transformational development, offering each of us the opportunity to explore our core motivations and inherent gifts. Through this process, people become aware of their own autopilot patterns (internal wiring) of seeing and reacting to people and situations. Equipped with this self-awareness, our clients are able to make conscious choices that inevitably bring out their best and the best in others.
This process is amazing for its ability to help clients find more self-awareness, tools for their relationships, and insight into their typical ways of coping with stress.
It can be an uncomfortable process at first, it will make you recognize some unhealthy patterns in your life. However, it will also help you put words to parts of yourself that you had never been able to describe, which will help you feel seen and understood.
Behavior coaching from an enneagram perspective is helping people see themselves with astonishing clarity, heal from toxic behavior patterns, improve their most important relationships, and more!
BodyTalk is a complementary therapy based on the theory that the body has the wisdom to heal itself. BodyTalk communications are based on neuromuscular biofeedback. Through these communications, the BodyTalk practitioner identifies "energy circuits" within the body that are weakened, stressed, blocked, or broken. Through these communications the practitioner can also identify emotions and past traumas that are trapped in the body, often these are the cause of the weakened and broken down "energy circuits". The BodyTalk system will not only identify all of this, but it will bring these issues into the awareness of the brain, allowing the body to generate a healing process that will begin to heal the body and emotional trauma.
BodyTalk integrates the latest discoveries from science, physiology, genetics, psychology, quantum physics and ancient wisdom of eastern medicine to help reconnect lines of healthy communication within all levels of the body-mind.
Health challenges arise for a variety of reasons. BodyTalk practitioners are trained to look at the whole-person: emotional, physical and environmental influences - the true underlying causes of "dis-ease" can be revealed.
We figured you would have a few questions. Please see the below FAQ page. If that does not answer your question please feel free to reach out to us!
"I rave about Daily Apple Wellness Center to everyone. People notice my weight loss or that I'm eating differently and I tell them all about my miracle worker practitioner! Lol. But I really do tell everyone about how great you are and how much you've helped me!"
“After many years of battling continuous weight gain and being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, I really was almost to the point of coming to terms that there was no hope for losing weight-until I met Amanda! I’m so thrilled that I’m finally seeing & feeling so many positive changes including a four pound recent weight loss in past three weeks (I’ve actually lost a total of 11 lbs since I’ve been seeing Amanda). Amanda has given me back my hope and I actually look forward to my light workouts.
We’re so fortunate to have Amanda here in the lake area because without her professional guidance I know I still would be struggling”
"In my struggle with autoimmune disease I’ve tried several things in order to achieve remission. After 4 years of trying different prescriptions and diets with no relief from constant blood in my stool I was afraid to eat anything. After meeting Amanda and just 3 months of following her direction I had achieved remission and the blood in my stool was gone. It’s now been a year since we first met and I’m still feeling great and my bloodwork shows it, I’m clear of inflammation! She’s been an answer to prayers!!"
"Have you been on the “Auto-Immune” traditional medical treatment protocols for awhile now? Do you find yourself achieving your goals, but lacking that final “something” that actually makes you feel great again? Have you switched diet plans and supplements but still falling short? Want to find out why...without revisiting your traditional medical doctor who typically adds another prescription medicine to your already full list of prescription medicines? Are you willing to open your mind and your ears to try an approach that is specifically oriented around your particular situation? Really, what have you got to lose, you’ve tried many options, Will one more highly effective attempt change things for you as they did mine? I still, and always will, have the need for traditional medical approaches, but combined with the protocols designed for me by Daily Apple Wellness Center, I have landed on the results I’ve always strived for!
Can just (1) appointment be life changing? My answer is YES. I encourage you to research for yourself, and if you truly are willing to make a few small step-changes, then you too can feel better."
" I loved my enneagram coaching! It has been so insightful as to why I do and see things the way I do as well as helped me understand my loved ones more. I have much better self-acceptance and grace with myself for being human! I used to assume everyone thinks like me or if they did the world would be easier lol! Now I am thankful for the people in my life that are very different from me and very thankful to have a better understanding of them! Amanda is truly a gift and I get a new present every time I meet with her!!"
"With Amanda's guidance I began using supplements a few months ago to help with PMS symptoms. It seems like since my last baby my periods have been way different than they ever have. The supplements, as well as following the diestary suggestions Amanda made, have helped so much! The moodiness and cravings and extreme tiredness are all much better!"
Amanda Baenisch NHP is a Natural Health Practitioner who has been working with people to improve their health and wellness through food, herbs, supplements, energy work, and natural health counseling for 10 years. She is always continuing her education and is working toward a doctorate in alternative medicine. She is practicing here at the Lake of the Ozarks.
Amanda practices from a functional medicine perspective. This is an exciting way to approach health! She will work to identify the root causes of what is ailing you and address the underlying factors that are causing symptoms and adversely affecting health. Amanda works closely with her clients to find remedies to their health issues and identify problems before they become a problem! This means in most cases your symptoms will disappear for good! Amanda sees fewer clients daily to provide longer visits with each client.
Amanda is also a certified BodyTalk practitioner and a certificated Enneagram coach. Amanda has had her own healing journey that included healing past emotional trauma. She believes that these emotional traumas lead to her physical body's poor health, including auto-immune disease. For Amanda it was the combination of functional medicine, BodyTalk, and coaching that restored her to health (including complete remission of her auto-immune condition!). It was important to Amanda to offer these same services to her clients.
Amanda began her life in California and lived in many parts of the country growing up. As an adult she ended up in Kansas City where she practiced from an office in her home and homeschooled her children. After several years of the suburbia lifestyle Amanda and her husband caught the travel bug and traveled the country with their kids in an RV! They settled here in 2015 and love life at the lake! Amanda is still homeschooling one child and is practicing at Absolute Wellness.

Your lab work will be analyzed from a functional medicine perspective. From a functional medicine perspective we are looking to stop problems in the body BEFORE they happen, so our lab ranges are much more narrow and strict than conventional lab ranges. We are looking at your labs as a whole not just one test a time, in doing this we are looking for patterns in all the tests that could tell the story of why you are having symptoms or point out a potential future issue that we can put a stop to before it is a problem. Consider Functional Lab testing as a way to view the different body systems and how they interact with one another.
Before your first appointment you will fill out a questionnaire that will spell out your symptoms in length. You will send that questionnaire back to us before your first appointment. We will take a couple of hours to review your symptom questionnaire and do any research needed before we meet, that way we are completely prepared for our first meeting. When we do meet we will go over all of your symptoms and we will ask you questions for more details, you will have a chance to tell us your story. Based on the work we did before you came in and our conversation together we will suggest a program to improve your current situation. We might also suggest some lab work to help us uncover the root cause of your symptoms.
In our follow ups we will see how you are doing with your new health plan. We will also review any lab work that was recommended at the first visit. From here we are supporting you on your journey and adding to your plan or removing things from your plan as needed. What challenges you are having? We will help you overcome them. On a follow up we might add some supplements or remove some, we will discuss ways to make your lifestyle changes easier, we might share some recipes, or even set up an appointment to go grocery shopping with you, etc. After a few months we may run some more labs to see how you are doing as well. As you heal your health plan will change so we will keep fine tuning it!
Our training is to get to the bottom of what is causing your health issues and educate you on how to restore health so your symptoms will go away. We look at your body as a whole, not piece by piece. For example, if you came to see us with migraines, our job is to analyze your symptoms and lab work to see what is causing the migraines. We would suggest some diet, lifestyle, and supplement changes to help rid of the migraine pain as well as changes to help heal what is causing the migraines so the migraines will eventually go away for good. We are not doctors; we are not here to diagnose and treat, but rather to restore health!
During your initial visit, we will answer your questions about BodyTalk, explain what the session will look like and partner with you to identify your wellness goals. BodyTalk uses a gentle and relaxing form of neuromuscular biofeedback (muscle checking) and gentle tapping on specific energy points that redirect your body's healing energy. During the entire session, you will be lying face up on a massage table, fully clothed or the session can be done with the person seated. The BodyTalk practitioner will muscle check for priorities using a protocol chart that acts as a guide. This protocol chart is a helpful map of the body's physical, emotional and energetic systems.
Your neuromuscular biofeedback responses guide the session, bringing awareness to your natural healing system and directs energy to areas that are out of balance. BodyTalk involves gentle tapping on the head and on the sternum/heart center as well as the client contacting specific energy points. All of the techniques can be done without physical contact on the body so people who are sensitive to touch enjoy BodyTalk for this reason.
The Enneagram is a system of nine personality types combining traditional wisdom with modern psychology. It is a powerful tool for understanding ourselves and the people in our lives.
According to the Enneagram, each of the nine personality types is defined by a particular core belief about how the world works. This core belief drives your deepest motivations and fears — and fundamentally shapes a person's worldview and the perspective through which they see the world and the people around them.
Our core beliefs are not necessarily incorrect, but they can be limiting and operate as “blinders” for people. Understanding our Enneagram type and how it colors our perceptions can help us to broaden our perspective and approach situations more effectively.
Understanding a person's Enneagram type helps us to see why they behave the way they do. Each Enneagram type has a set of core beliefs that will consistently motivate them to take particular actions and guide them to make certain decisions. Behavior that may seem confusing or contradictory can often be explained when we understand a person's Enneagram type.
The Enneagram also helps us understand how people react to stress. By describing how each type adapts and responds to both stressful and supportive situations, the Enneagram shows opportunities for personal development and provides a foundation for the understanding of others.
Each visit is one hour long. Your visits are usually weekly, or every other week. The first visit we will focus on finding your enneagram type. The next 5 visits will take your personality and break it down into bite sized pieces. During these 5 weeks you will learn things like: your core fear and weakness, how you behave when you are stressed in general, how you behave when you are stressed around people you are closest to, what does it look like to be on your growth path, common relationship issues, how do you behave when you are healthy verses unhealthy, your communication style, and much more!
Beyond those first 6 visits we will take what you have learned about yourself and apply it to specific areas of your life. We can tailor the coaching to anything you want to experience transformation around in your life, including (but not limited to!) conflict resolution, professional development, growing in areas of health such as eating right, exercising etc, improving personal relationships, communication, and more.
The Enneagram coach gives people tools that assist them in unlocking their full potential and improving their self-confidence, decision making skills, conflict resolution, relationships, stress management mechanisms, and professional success.
You could experience:
Yes! Imagine if you knew the ins and outs of how and why your spouse/partner behaved! Imagine if they knew this about you! Behavior coaching from an enneagram perspective is a powerful tool to improve relationships. You will find your relationship grow to a level of peace that you did not know existed.
This process works the same way with groups. We can coach church groups, work groups, sports groups etc. Group coaching will greatly improve the productivity of the group being coached.
