What a difference 4 days with more water and no sugar makes! My mind was clearer & no shakiness. I didn’t have the bloated feeling either.
Just a side comment to tell you that I am feeling so steady, confident in a quiet way, and smooth. I have a feeling it is in large part thanks to you, Maria.”JB, Corte Madera, CA
But Maria was warm, understanding, compassionate, and respectful of the long journey I had already been on. I felt safe to let my defenses down, and began to trust her wisdom and guidance. It felt so amazing to not be going through this health struggle alone! It feels like we’re a team of powerful women coming together to care for my body.
Since then, Maria has helped me discover the nutritional roots of my health issues. I am recovering not just from the acute symptoms I had when I met her, but from chronic issues I’ve had for over 20 years. I just wanted to get rid of the fatigue. But now I am surprised to be 42 pounds lighter and my friends say I glow! Because of Maria, I feel like I have a new body and a second chance at life.” AB, Lawrence, KS
Maria laid out an easy plan for me and gave me recipes. She did blood and hair work to see what was going on inside my body. I was depleted of magnesium and my adrenals were not functioning anywhere near where they should.
We took one challenge at a time. I now know how to eat to be full, healthy and give my body what it needs. I don’t need an afternoon coffee to stay awake and I have so much more energy. I lost weight and have a greater knowledge of choosing foods for myself.
I loved Maria’s gentle approach. She is easy to work with and you get results!” -SJ, Novato, CA
Maria’s compassion, knowledge and expertise helped me to explore and better understand my relationship with food. She respected my own habits and worked with me to find creative interventions to make the difficult changes given today’s busy realities. Maria balances kindness and caring with directness and nutritional education. She instinctively knows when to listen and when to offer her informational expertise.
She also doesn’t assume to have THE answer. I’ve been overwhelmed by the countless dietary books all with conflicting information. Maria gave me advice that was personally tailored to my own health and lifestyle patterns. She would do research between meetings to get a better sense of my own unique constitution.
If you are looking for a nutritional consultant who is empathic, knowledgeable and respects your own unique strengths and challenges, then I highly recommend Maria. Her nutritional consultations are much more than teaching you what to eat. They are a holistic exploration that can help you better understand your own patterns so that you will be in a better place to take control of your own health and wellness.” DK, Oakland
Now… I am free from gas and bloating and I have normal healthy size and textured stools, and sometimes even more than one per day (something I haven’t had in over 15 years). I have lots more energy and patience. My hair is growing again and even feels thicker and my eyebrows are also coming back. One of the most noticeable outward changes for me was that the circles under my eyes lightened considerably and on some days they are nonexistent. I don’t have to wear makeup on them anymore if I don’t want. My skin texture, elasticity and shine improved greatly too.
It is so strange to have people stop me and say, “Wow, you look great! Your skin looks beautiful!” I don’t know what to say except “Thank you…it’s my nutritionist!”
Working with Maria has helped me slow down and remember myself. I now try to take time for self-care in everything I do. I remember that I’m worth caring for just as much as those I love. She has given me more confidence in my body and its capabilities and reminded me that if I treat it well it will continue to reward me. I find myself feeling so proud of what my body can do and how it can heal when supported better. Since the gut healing, things have been going so well that I sometimes forget how sick I felt before. “ GS, Fairfax, CA
