Maria has a genuine and patient personality that makes her easy to work with, and she was very responsive to any questions I had about any aspect of the program I was on. She does not work on a one-size-fits-all way, and worked to customize the program to my needs and to how my body was responding to the supplements. I would totally recommend her and work with her again in the future.

And that is not what the Peri-Menopause Detox is about. I want you to see for yourself that we are going to eat delicious REAL food so I’m giving you one of the recipes.

Should you go gluten-free?

The answer, as you can guess, is not that straightforward and requires some work on your part.  “Gluten-free” is not a diet, per se, but a way of life.  Eating gluten for those with gluten intolerance makes life miserable. Gluten is the generic name used to describe...

Simple & Sweet Holiday Dessert – Cardamom-Infused Coconut Whipped Cream (with Sautéed Cinnamon Apples)
