My son was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive cancer, and I had been eating my way though his illness to change the way I felt. I reached out to Vanessa because she was close to my age and I felt she would “get me” and have pearls of wisdom to share with me. Plus the fact that she is a nurse (RN) cinched the deal for me.
I found her to genuinely care and was very knowledgeable in helping me with my life and health goals. I saw this as an investment in myself. She helped me fashion a firm foundation of healthy habits.
We started with Paleo but soon transitioned to the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) to help with the flares, pain and inflammation. My fingers no longer look like sausages and life is good.
My son just went though a stem cell transplant and I am better prepared to care for him. I highly recommend Vanessa.
Hello, my name is Frania and I’m 32 years old. I have been working with Vanessa since January 2017.
My starting weight was 194 pounds with a BMI of 35.7%. My diabetes was out of control with an A1C of 10.0%, taking medication twice a day; blood pressure was high; I was anemic; and my liver enzymes were elevated. I knew I needed to start getting serious about my health and weight problem. But after years of trying many different diets including pills and injections. Nothing ever had long lasting results. I felt very frustrated and discouraged. I knew I needed professional help.
After a few months of following Vanessa’s plan I started to see and feel positive results. My diabetes is under control now. I even had to discontinue taking my diabetic medication. My blood pressure is normal, my energy levels have increased drastically, the anemia has resolved, and liver enzymes are normal. Oh did I forget to mention I lost 40 pounds!!! I never though I could do it.
Vanessa has helped me to set goals and challenges to improve my overall health habits by focusing on my personalized needs. I highly recommend working with her!
