09/10/18 Natalie B: Anne is a true life transformer and even that doesn’t do the work she does enough justice! Reaching my mid- 30s, having spent years trying every fad diet under the sun (whole 30, Keto, Atkins, South beach, etc.) in an effort to lose those stubborn 10-15lbs that crept up in my late 20s and wanting to overall feel better, I reached out to Anne after a coworker of mine told me about a food sensitivity test she had taken to help her overall health. My naive-self thought this would be the one thing to cure all my problems. During my first initial meeting with Anne, I quickly realized that we are all complex, unique individuals that requires an individualized approach to resolving symptoms and issues within the body. While it has been quite the journey and lifestyle change, it is truly the best path to improved overall health.
In that first meeting with Anne, we talked about my lifestyle including my “good, not great” eating habits, high stress levels, low energy levels, tendency to get sick easily and lack of being able to lose weight. Even within our brief discussion, Anne was able to use her expertise to start to solve some of the mystery of my insides and even made some preliminary suggestions that I started to put into play. Each meeting there after we were able to uncover more and more of what was all going on. Once the entire picture was identified, Anne then put together a plan for me and within the first 3-4 weeks I felt significantly better- I had more energy, my focus was clearer, anxiety was gone and even better I was down 10lbs!
While our work together continues, I am certain that with Anne’s level of expertise, her supportive demeanor and utmost professionalism I am going to be heading to a much healthier lifestyle that I will be able to sustain as it is tailored directly to me!
09/10/18 ML: I was having back issues for months, feeling tired all the time, dealing with anxiety/depression issues, not losing weight (in spite of working out all the time), stomach and intestinal issues, and to top it off, I was seeing my primary care doctor for heart palpitations. To resolve my back issues, I decided to seek out a Chiropractor. I felt some relief for a couple of months but then all the issues started to return only with a greater vengeance. The pain was debilitating. It hurt to sit, to stand up, I felt like an 80 year old in a 32 year old body. I had enough. I was tired of not having any energy regardless of the amount of sleep I got. Also, I was frustrated with how much I went to the gym and still wasn’t losing weight. I knew that I needed to do something different so I started working with Anne. Through Anne’s functional testing, she quickly realized that I was deficient in several vital nutrients. She recommended a diet and supplement protocol that was tailored specifically to what my body needed. Within a few days I could tell a difference. In fact, I can tell when I forget to take the supplements. This past May I took a blood test to see what foods I had a sensitivity to. I removed those foods from my diet and I can tell a huge difference. My fatigue is considerably less, I’ve lost weight, my anxiety/depression is much better, no more stomach and intestinal issues, and my heart palpitations are gone. It took me a LONG TIME to listen to what Anne was telling me to do. Not going to lie, it’s scary and hard. But, it’s even scarier to go to a Doctor and have them put you on medication with all the side effects that are listed. I had to view this as a lifestyle change, it’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle change. I know I can’t go back to eating the way I was, yes I have slip ups, but I know how good I feel eating healthier. I was also traveling every other week for over 4 months during the winter and not once did I get a cold or sick. I have my confidence back and am in clothes that I haven’t worn in over a year and half. I would definitely recommend Anne to anyone that is looking to get healthy and feel better about themselves. She’s been a life saver for me.
08/28/2018 JD: Prior to going to Anne, I had a doctor appointment where he said I was marginally overweight and had moderately high blood pressure. I went to Anne to see if she could help improve my health. She had me tested to check for allergies, sensitivities, and other issues. After a few months, my weight and blood pressure both improved significantly since starting Anne's regiment. I feel better, have more energy, and believe that the results are not only a one time event, but a lifestyle change. Thanks Anne!
