You have autoimmunity.

You are not diseased, sick, broken, imperfect, wrong, bad, messed up, dysfunctional, weak, flawed, unlucky, defective, malfunctioning nor inferior.

You are a KANARI in a coal mine.

The KANARI Project was designed to reframe autoimmunity. Much like the miner’s canary, a person with autoimmunity can sense toxins and dangers in the environment much sooner than the general population. The things that distress an autoimmune individual will eventually stress everyone else. Thus, it is wise of us to listen to these whispers and see autoimmunity as an omen, a sign, a message with foresight. We, the autoimmune, are the messengers for the entire planet. We are empowered with our heightened sense of perception about ourselves, our loved ones and the world around us.

We are intuitive, empathetic, caring, subtle, giving, sensing, feeling, worthy, strong, empowered and full of nuance.

We are The KANARI Life.


Autoimmunity is a disease process in which the body’s immune system becomes confused and attacks its own tissues and organs. Autoimmune diseases refers to a group of illnesses that includes disorders of the nervous, gastrointestinal, and endocrine systems. These include Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Type 1 Diabetes, Celiac Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Psoriasis, Ulcerative Colitis, Vitiligo and many more. In all of these autoimmune diseases, the underlying problem lies in an imbalance of the immune system, not in the tissues or organs which present symptoms.


The KANARI Life is run by a team of creative women who are having fun with autoimmunity and living a life they love!

Dr. Natasha Fallahi is a Doctor, Designer, Speaker and Artist. She specializes in healing autoimmunity through integrative chiropractic, functional neurology, functional medicine, nutrition and homeopathy. She is founder of The KANARI Life ( a fun lifestyle website for autoimmunity and co-founder of KOBA Family Wellness ( a private practice in Berkeley, CA. She is passionate about helping adults and children achieve their highest potential in health and wellness – body, mind and spirit.

Like many of the people she provides care for, Dr. Natasha Fallahi also struggled for many years with “unexplainable” health issues: chronic fatigue, vague pain, low energy, hormonal imbalance, acne, anxiety, and depression. Unbeknownst to her, she was experiencing the all-too-common story of mismanaged Hashimoto’s autoimmunity. She traveled the world looking for her own path to healing…and along the way learned how to help others with similar challenges. Over a span of many years and many miles, Dr. Natasha discovered protocols that totally transformed her health and well-being. Every day, she feels more alive and connected than the day before.

Alana was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition called Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis in 2013. When conventional medical doctors couldn’t help her address the numerous digestive issues and fatigue that she was facing, she turned to dietary and lifestyle changes to find relief. Through an anti-inflammatory diet, along with stress management and chiropractic care, she has improved dramatically. Now, she has energy levels that get her through the day and her digestion has improved. While maintaining her health now requires her to be selective about what foods she eat, she has found this change has been incredibly positive for her rather than limiting. Her passions are to cook foods that taste good, to not sacrifice taste or creativity, and to inspire others to find healing through the food they love.
