~ A Few Kind Words ~

I have been suffering with IBS D since the onset of Covid in 2020.  My gastroenterologist had me take every test, submitted numerous stool samples and I was finally diagnosed with IBS D.  She told me to get the Fodmap book and and follow their diet and food suggestions.  I found the diet impossibly restrictive and started losing weight, which I can not afford to lose. Finally after over 2 years and at my lowest weight in decades she referred to Amenta Nutrition.
I worked with Christine. She is a pleasure. She requested my medical records to have all that info as well.  She listened, was not judgmental and made me immediately feel comfortable.  The first thing she told me to do was throwout the Fodmap book!  She worked out meal plans that worked for me specifically.  I'm able to add foods back into my diet that I like, in the right amounts that don't upset my system. I haven't felt this good in over 2 years.  I can go out and enjoy my life again.  The teleconferences worked really well for our sessions. If I have a question she's only a text away always with a quick response . She has given me back my freedom!

My daughter is THE PICKIEST eater. She started having a lot of trouble with constipation. Working with Amenta Nutrition has turned things around in my house.  My daughter has NO PROBLEMS with constipation anymore. Dinnertime and breakfast are no longer a struggle or a time I dread.

Working with Christine was great. I was struggling with a recurrence of idiopathic anaphylaxis early in my pregnancy. Christine helped me put together a varied meal plan and food list that was safe for my condition. I have much more confidence in my food choices now, and have not had a recurrence of my symptoms since working with Christine.

Working with Christine was great. She listened to me and was able to craft a plan that made sense for where I was at in my life at that moment and then modifying as made sense as we went along. As a result I have a new mindset and relationship with food.  While I still have more weight to lose, I have a plan where I am losing consistently but it in a healthy, realistic, sustainable manner that does not make me feel like I am depriving myself of any of my favorite foods or drinks.
