What Clients are Saying About Nourishing Balance
When I began working with Mary, I was pre-diabetic, had elevated cholesterol, was overweight and addicted to foods that were packed with preservatives and chemicals. After a health scare, I knew I had to change my ways, the right way. Mary was incredibly supportive, and introduced me to foods that satisfied my sweet tooth naturally, filled me up and healed me from the inside out. I now eat whole foods almost exclusively and have never felt deprived. In six months, my cholesterol dropped 51 points, my blood sugar normalized and I lost nearly 60 pounds. I truly believe that I can eat this way for the rest of my life, and I have Mary to thank for showing me the way!"
I am having such amazing results from our work together and I want more. Who knew that I liked Kale. I never even knew what it was before I met you. I don’t know how I spent a large majority of my life without Kale and Quinoa. I know this is gonna sound cheesy, but you really changed my life and the way I eat and think of food. I have not touched cheetos in weeks and Snickers or processed candies what are those? I only eat real chocolate and shop mostly at Farmers Markets. Diet Cokes forget about it. Ice Cream . . . Can’t even remember the last time. The benefits of meeting you and working together have been exponential."
I just wanted to tell you what an invaluable service you have done for me. Not only have I learned so much about which foods can help me take care of my body, but you have taught me how to listen to my body to understand its needs. I feel so much healthier and vibrant than I did even six months ago. Under your care I have learned about the healing power of food and the importance of choosing what to eat wisely. I have become more adventurous when it comes to trying new concoctions in the kitchen, and care more about organic and fair-trade foods. I really appreciate the way you never seem to judge me for the foods written down in my food journal and always encourage me to point out the things I do well and make goals that I can attain and be proud of. I feel very cared for when you mention new studies and articles that pertain to my health particularly—and after going to so many different doctors and specialists without receiving much help it’s nice to feel like I have a friend on the cutting edge of science. Thanks Mary, you have truly inspired me!"
Mary, you have been such an inspiration to me and one of the best things I have done for myself ever! Because of our work together I truly understand the whole concept of ‘you are what you eat.’ You are just wonderful! Thank you for helping me make my life a better one. Really I think that I already feel better and am living a better life."
Mary, I enjoyed working with you so much- it really has changed my life, the way I look at food, and the way I look at myself. I feel so much healthier and in control of things. I love the cooking, the meditation, and thinking about food in terms of nutrients and nurturing-not in terms of points and calories. Slowly but surely things have fallen into place and I couldn’t have done it without you."
This detox program has been life changing! It was exactly what I needed to make a huge transition in my life…Thank you Mary and everyone for your encouragement, recipes and support!"
After having the nutrition genetic testing done by Mary, I have significantly cut down on gluten, dairy and saturated fat and have increased my leafy greens each day based on my genetic profile recommendations and I have been feeling really good. Learning that my body does not process saturated fat or folate very will has motivated me to change my diet. I think the genetic testing is great because it feels really good to have specific nutrient recommendations based on my genes, it really solidifies the recommendations and I believe has made me more likely (and others that will do this genetic testing) to adhere to the specific and individual recommendations. Something is different in my brain chemistry too, I feel much more happy every day!"
