Optional add on --available for a limited number: 4 one-on-one individualized and tailored coaching sessions during the virtual program for those who reside locally (WA, OR) or in any other state I am licensed/authorized to work in. Please contact me if you are interested in this option if you are from another state. State regulations change from time to time so I would need to verify whether it would be an option. Currently it appears that I could work with residents of AZ, CA, CO, OR, MI, NY, UT, VA, VT, WA, WI, WY. However, please contact me because there may be additional states I can work in also, and/or these may end up not being an option, either.
Please note: Due to the nature of this program and legalities, I cannot provide individual medical or nutritional advice to virtual program attendees. I can provide medical nutritional therapy (MNT) to my individual clients only.
NOT SURE IF THIS IS RIGHT FOR YOU? Well, how would you like to have fewer headaches, more energy, less brain fog, better health now and in the future, and/or a healthier weight? Taking the symptom survey may help you decide. If you click on the pdf above, you can print and take the symptom survey. If you score 20 or higher, this program may be for you!
How did this program come to be? Well, here's the story.... If you already know you want this, you can skip my introduction here, but some people ask, so here it goes. I know a bit about nutrition. After all, that's my field. However, as I have worked with clients, I have been amazed at how HUGE of results my clients have gotten, and all from pretty basic principles. I have been working one on one with clients in my practice for about four years now. Unfortunately, I did not start using an objective symptom survey right away, but more recently, I have tried to have my clients complete a symptom survey at the beginning, middle, and end of our initial 12- week program together, and I have seen truly incredible results! Every now and then someone will kindly post a positive review, but here are some of the results I have seen and heard from my clients:
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
--Towards the end of working together, I asked one lady, who had lost weight on track, "So how do you feel now after working together?" "I feel a lot better, but I haven't done anything differently." I smiled inwardly but remained silent. A moment later she said, "Oh, I guess I did start doing X, and oh yeah, I started doing Y.... oh and I am doing Z..... now...." but she had not felt like she had many any changes even though she had actually made significant changes in her diet and lifestyle because they were small, gradual changes that she felt she could do the rest of her life, and she hardly noticed them since they were made in such small steps.
That is how I generally work with clients. It is small gradual changes to last a lifetime. This is not a program where I provide shakes or dictate your exact meals each day just to achieve quick weight loss, so that when we are done working together, you gain all the weight right back and are left hanging not knowing what to do/eat anymore or how to handle holidays and special occasions, or travel, or times when you want to eat with everyone else. Instead, I share principles that you can grasp and follow for life, that you can know you are getting what your body needs for longevity and good health, preventing disease in the future, and feeling great now.
--Another client went from having about 8-10 hot flashes a night, to having 2-5 hot flashes per week. When she started working with me, she was understandably feeling irritable from not being able to sleep well and felt miserable. Towards the end of our time working together, one day she thought, "Oh, this doesn't matter... I'll just eat how I used to." Instantly she regretted it. She told me she was "cured" and was never going back! She realized how much these changes had done for her, and not only her, but her entire family. They had lost weight, and all felt better!
--Another client who started with a high symptom score had a symptom reduction of about 75% and more than a 20lb weight loss. She told me she was able to do activities she had not been able to do for many years, that she felt better, and her entire family was eating differently along with her.
--And another client was having horrible migraine headaches about half to two-thirds of the time that kept her largely in bed most days and inactive. She was on several medications at maximum doses for this. She struggled with guilt from eating, too, feeling that her food was making her fat or going to give her diabetes. After working together, she not only had lost weight, had a huge symptom score reduction, reported not struggling with guilt anymore with eating, went back to work full time, had energy again, AND reported her headaches were almost gone, with maybe only one mild headache in a month that did not last long.
There are many more stories I could share of men, women, and children/teens who have gotten great results from working together. It has been so exciting for me to watch. I feel blessed to have had the privilege of working with each of my wonderful clients and seeing their lives completely change for the better. I felt inspired to offer this to a wider audience than just who can come to my office. That is why I am now taking the principles that have helped numerous others and putting them into a virtual program. Although I recognize that an online program is not the same as having professional judgment helping one-on-one (except for a limited number who I can fit in who add on private coaching sessions with me), I believe these same principles can still be life changing.
So, this program is for you if:
--you took the symptom survey and have a score of around 20 or higher,
--you desire to learn more about nutrition,
--have a family history of disease you want to avoid such as diabetes, cancer, or heart disease,
--you are looking for a healthful yummy easy way to eat and live for yourself or your family,
--or you are wanting scientific-based solid principles that could change your life forever and you do NOT want a crash course or yo-yo diet that will leave you worse off than you were before!
It is NOT for you if:
--you are completely happy with your current health and lifestyle,
--you are unwilling to make any changes,
--if you want your life to look the same in a year from now as it does right now.
--OR for those who have disease conditions making certain changes that might be advocated in this program unsafe for them* (such as those with kidney or liver disease, as example).
*The principles in this program could mean wonderful improvements for some, but for others could be unsafe or even fatal. As always, please obtain clearance from your healthcare provider before making any dietary or lifestyle changes. This program is for educational purposes only and is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

However, if you are cleared medically for any changes in diet, exercise, or lifestyle, and you are ready for a new start on life, for more energy, more mental clarity, or are tired of feeling yucky, this program may be for you.
How much is your health worth to you? This program has a value of approximately $1,320-$1,680 based on professional time and resources provided. Some people recoup that cost quickly with newfound wellness allowing them to obtain employment again. Others recoup that value in physical and emotional benefits that allow them to participate in life activities they were formerly unable to do. The value of health is priceless. For less than the average cost of eating out one meal per week for a family for three months, this program could bring you life-changing and life-saving results! Depending on the source, the average U.S. household spends approximately $3,000-4,200 per year eating out [Source: How Much Is Eating Out at Restaurants Really Costing You? (moneycrashers.com)]. That comes out to approximately $750-1,065 just on eating out in three months. However, this program is available for only $379, or roughly $30/week. If you are ready to have your life back, or are looking for lifechanging results, then I encourage you to sign up today. And, if you recruit a friend to sign up, you each get $50 off! *For the referral program discount, please put the name of who referred you or who you refer into the "Notes to business" box when you sign up, and refunds will be awarded accordingly.
