Not only was she able to provide everything she promised, she went above and beyond and exceeded my expectations. She is so professional, yet nice and very friendly. I was able to relax and really enjoy our session. All of my questions were answered completely during our session. I learned so much. While it was an investment, it was the best investment in my health that I could have made. For decades I have tried to support my health challenges through nutrition. I've even become a certified Nutritional Consultant. I knew that dairy and wheat were not good for me, but Melissa was able to help me find specific foods which had been aggravating my condition. Through listening to her and following her directives, I have been able to reduce my symptoms of Crohn's Disease and low back pain (due to spinal cord injury) over 90% I will be forever grateful for Melissa and her expertise, she has changed my life! Also I have sent her numerous clients who all have reported back to me similar findings. Going to see Melissa is the best thing you can do for your health...what are you waiting for??
Melissa is very friendly, helpful, understanding and intelligent. She helped me recover from some major food sensitivities and I would recommend her to anyone who is suffering major health issues. She also went way out of her way to help me understand my MTWFR. I am very grateful.
