What Clients are Saying
I feel so much better. I feel terrific, actually. I have more energy, am sleeping better, and yesterday someone told me my eyes are whiter. :)
I haven’t been eating dairy, and on Wednesday night I was out with a friend and I had about an ounce of mozzarella. The next morning I woke up super phlegmy. Thanks for helping me adjust my diet. It has really made a difference.
“Erin – Thank you so much for all your help and encouragement. You have done so much, you just will never know! I can’t imagine how many lives you have touched, but we are all so blessed. Thank you, again!
Erin, we did a phone appointment a few weeks ago and you gave me some great suggestions for handling my IBS symptoms. I wanted to let you know that your recommendations have helped me a TON! I feel like I’ve made a lot of progress with both my symptoms and my understanding of the emotional issues underlying my digestive troubles. I’ve been doing a lot of good work in terms of eating habits and emotional processing, and have also started reading The Slow Down Diet again from the beginning. I’ve been practicing week 1 (mindful breathing, eating slowly) and plan to go through the other 7 chapters, one week at a time. Thank you again
I wanted to let you know that your recommendations have helped me a TON!
I have come off of the candida diet completely, and some miraculous changes have taken place. After being intolerant to beef for 10 years, I can now eat it again. Beef used to trigger extreme symptoms for me. In addition to the typical IBS red meat symptoms of pain/bloating/constipation, I also would get migraines, cystic pimples on my face, and major negative mood swings after consuming a small portion of beef. Now I can eat it just fine, no pain or indigestion.
The other major thing that happened was, after that episode of bad gut pain toward the end of the cleanse, things gradually calmed down. Once they settled, I found that I no longer had the lower right quadrant pain that has plagued me for over 4 years. Literally nothing had helped that gut pain until your soluble fiber suggestion and doing some breathing, body awareness, meditation, and EFT and even then, it only lessened it a bit. Prior to seeing you, I had cut out gluten and dairy, taken probiotics, cod liver oil, bone broth, fermented foods, done exercises, colon hydrotherapy, juicing, etc. All those things helped my health in different ways, but they did nothing for the gut pain in that one spot.
Well, it’s GONE. That embarrassing terrible gut pain is gone. I never revealed the full extent of it even to you: it made my love life hell for the last four years. I can now push on that part of my belly and it’s not tender or sore the way it used to be. It’s still more “sensitive” than other areas because my body guarded that area so much since it always hurt…. but the pain is gone!! Also, nothing I’ve eaten has caused a major flare-up of that pain. Even if it feels a little “off” it’s very different than it used to be. A little tender sometimes, but no sharp pains anymore. So, thank you. Thank you for everything.
You accomplished so much with me in such a short amount of time!
I just wanted to thank you again for your guidance these last couple of months. The BIA test that you did with me told a pretty dismal story at my second visit. The fact that by my fourth and final visit the test results were so drastically different really blew me away. You accomplished so much with me in such a short amount of time! The cherry on top was when I got home from that very visit… my blood test results were in from my physical (done the week before), and my cholesterol was 115! (good cholesterol was high, and bad cholesterol was low). My calcium levels were really high (yea kefir!) and everything was in the perfect range of where I should be. Anyway, I really appreciate what you did for me and what you do for everyone!
