"'We’re hitting the wall of medical treatments available to help you.' This is what I heard from my doctor after a year of severe pain and other symptoms due to endometriosis. This is what I heard after a year of trying every medical and hormonal treatment available for endometriosis. This is what I heard right before I had my second endometriosis surgery in only 3 years, a 5 hour laparoscopic surgery to excise endometriosis and remove my appendix. After surgery, I expected to notice the pain relief immediately, just like I had after my first surgery. This was not the case; my symptoms were slightly better but my quality of life did not return as I had expected and hoped. This is when my doctor recommended looking into homeopathic treatments to “fine tune” my body and gain better control of my symptoms.
While I knew that food is fuel for the body and that the food I was eating was probably playing a part in how I was feeling, it wasn’t until I went through this pain that I was really committed to making a change in my diet and lifestyle. In the past my motivation to change what I was eating was to look a little better or lose some weight. This time, my motivation was to feel better. When I started seeing Kim, I was ready to do whatever it took to feel better and feel like I had control of my body again. From our first appointment, I knew I had a partner in helping me navigate through the diet and lifestyle changes I knew I needed to make to become myself again. It’s been less than 4 months since I started seeing Kim and my health has improved dramatically. I’ve lost 20 lbs without even having weight loss as a goal, my symptoms have almost disappeared, and I’ve been able to come off one of my prescription medications. Most importantly, I feel better and I feel like me again. -Amanda V.
"I finally made it a point to take the class [Eating to Thrive] and took advantage of the one-on-one consultation, which helped me find the answers to my issues. With Kim's help and supplements, I feel so much better. I lost 10 pounds, but the best was when I finally went back to my gastroenterologist for a colonoscopy and endoscopy, there was no sign of GERD or any other gastro issues!" -Dee H.
"Kim is an excellent source of information to help you improve your health and therefore, your life. Kim listens to what you are trying to accomplish and explains how you eat, and more importantly, what you eat affects your entire body. Although change can be hard, Kim helps you make small changes one at a time and that makes everything manageable. She believes is all starts in your gut and she can explain the how and why so that you truly understand it. If you ever thought 'it's time to change my relationship with food,' then you need to see Kim. She has helped me with my inflammation and that has helped my arthritis." -Debbie G.
"I PR’d several exercises this month and lost some of that persistent belly fat that loves to hang around uninvited. Most of all though, I feel like this past month jump started a healthier direction for my diet and held me accountable to not justify eating junk, so I feel like I’m on a good path with no intention of getting off of it. Very grateful!" -William R.
"My whole life I struggled up and down with weight loss. At the times when I was at my lowest weight, I still didn't feel quite right and was pretty much starving. Kim really steered me in the right direction, and eating this way has changed me so much- not just physically but mentally. My mind is clearer and I have better focus. Kim's passion and dedication to each client is absolutely amazing. It is very clear how much she loves her work. No more looking up anything on the internet for me anymore. I absolutely trust her knowledge and wisdom. I look forward to learning more from Kim in the future." - Kaity P.
"I've had the pleasure of working with Kim for the last year since I reached out to her for nutritional advice. Over the past several years I have been on a consistent rotation of steroids and allergy medicines for my asthma, eczema and allergies. Being on steroids for 3 months at a time twice a year led to weight gain as well. Working with Kim was fantastic because she did not restrict how much I eat but instead taught me to understand how the food I eat impacts my body. I have found Kim to be very knowledgeable about nutrition and she portrays the utmost professionalism and sincerity in all of her meetings and suggestions. To date with Kim's help I have been able to stop taking all steroids and allergy medicines, I no longer have eczema (for the first time in my life!), have not had issues with my asthma and I have also lost weight and continue to lose more!" - Melissa P.
“I really have enjoyed working with Kim these last few months. I spent most of my adult life trying to figure out how to eat nutritional, balanced meals that were right for me, but with no lasting success. After working with Kim I had a much better understanding of how each food I was eating affected me, both positively and negatively. In a short period of time I reached several of my nutritional and health goals, and have managed to continue doing so. Kim is very professional to work with, always contacting you when she says she will, and always following up as planned. I highly recommend Kim! - Ezra S.
"It was truly my pleasure to meet Kim and be a part of her seminars. I have learned so much from her in such a short period of time and am grateful to her. Kim has a calming influence and the ability to put people at ease. I would definitely recommend her seminars to other people. For me personally there were so many reasons why I came. I’ve been given the gift of life again and I’d like to be around for my family. Thank you so much Kim." - Richard B.
"Thank you for such an inspiring, and thought-provoking program! I truly enjoyed the [Eating to Thrive] classes." - Helayne P.
