How long have you been Gluten Free?
Since June 20, 2010.
Do you have Celiac?
Are you a Nutritionist?
No, I am not an “RD.” I am a Holistic Health Coach. I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and I am certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.
Are you a Certified Personal Trainer?
No. A long time ago I began studying through the NSCA, but I never finished. I’m thinking of finishing within the next year or two.
I’m Gluten Free. Now what?
I strive to help people with this daily. Here is a good place to start.
Will you review my product/service/app?
My #1 goal and focus is/are on my readers. The gut is a fragile place. Because of this, I refuse to be just another “healthy lifestyle” blogger promoting and catering to anyone and everyone. I make decisions like this for a very specific reason. In order to protect the integrity and authenticity of this blog I limit the amount of reviews. I am not a one-size fits all, and I believe in longer term partnerships vs. one-hit wonders. I welcome any and all forms of contact to further explore relationships.
I have tried everything. I can’t figure out what my stomach is still reacting to. What should I do?
The best and most comprehensive action-oriented step I recommend is to try The Elimination Diet.
My stomach issues are not the same as yours. Do you think you’ll still be able to work with me/help me?
Absolutely! I believe in bio-individuality, which was a huge focus at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition. What is a cure for me could be poison for you. I will work with you, provide hand-holding and help you navigate your best life. Go ahead, choose your program.
Which diet do you think is best?
None. I don’t believe in “diet.” Instead, I believe in foods that contribute to your overall lifestyle….foods that heal the digestive tract and make you happy daily. That said, I pull from and am educated on over 100 different dietary theories. If there is a theory you are interested in learning more about, studying and practicing, I can help you understand it.
Why won’t you tell me what you eat every single day?
I refuse to do this because what works for me will likely not work 100% for you. I did one WIAW (what I ate Wednesday); I will never do another.
Could something other than food be contributing to my digestive distress?
Yes. Remember, I believe in the power of viewing the body as a whole unit. The gut is not a separate piece to the genetic makeup. I look at primary and secondary foods. These include: spirituality, physical activity, career, relationships and food.
I’m interested in going to The Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Can you give me more, personalized information about it?
I’m happy to! You can find information here, download from me your very own copy of the Integrative Nutrition eBook (which contains recipes such as the Tofu Scramble and Baked Bananas) or simply contact me and ask any questions you wish!
What if I only have a couple questions? Can I just email you?
I used to give out information, thoughts and resources every single day – for free. In the end, I have decided that I simply cannot commit to this anymore. Like you, I have 24 hours in a day, and I need to be sure that I am spending them in the best way possible. Furthermore, I have found over the years that when you are ready to truly make a change, then you will make a stronger commitment to yourself by working more in depth with me. I do offer solo email days, which you can purchase HERE.
