‘I’m always impressed with Sheila’s insights, approach, and knowledge. She takes the time to think through all the data, including my input and how I’m feeling, and then processes that into her incredible knowledge base to tailor her recommendations to my personal situation. I trust her recommendations and have come to depend upon her wisdom and collaboration along this journey. I don’t think I’d be making any sort of progress without her!”
"I reached out to Sheila for some one on one work after I developed a medical condition and thought she could possibly help me through diet. I was working with four different doctors running various tests, scans and blood work who had no answers for me. Sheila on the other hand developed a nutrition regime and provided me the support to be able to implement it. She also tested my nutrient levels and was able to help me find supplements where I was deficient. After only 30 days I felt significantly better and 60 days later I was virtually symptom free. It is great to have my health back and be more conscious of the nutrients I need to take care of my body!”
"Shelia talked to us about nutrition as a part of our month-long corporate wellness challenge. She accommodated my request to provide ideas to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into our diets but also built on that with an informative presentation about why nutrition is important and what happens in our bodies when we fuel them with good foods. Shelia is very knowledgeable, positive, and has a great approach to helping individuals navigate the overwhelming amount of information out there about nutrition. Her visit sparked lots of conversations and was very well received. I would recommend incorporating a visit from Shelia as a part of any wellness plans individuals or groups have for the new year”
"Sheila, blends her extensive knowledge of a holistic approach to nutrition with my body’s specific needs. Sheila’s insight into the emotional/physiological aspect of making changes gave me and continues to give me the support I need to keep on going forward, stay positive about myself and the outcome and be patient. I am healthier and continue to learn about all the ‘seeds’ of nutrition I am taught.”
"Working with Sheila, I appreciated being able to do a test, look at the results, and make an informed decision about how to move forward. We were able to identify food sensitivities,which has changed the way I make choices about food. I have an awareness and intentionality around how my body operates.”
"Sheila listens and offers treatment ideas that fit with your lifestyle. She is patient and available, with no judgement. Her passion is to help people be at their best. Last year, I was very sick with SIBO. Doctor's had tried various meds to cure me that didn't work and made me worse. My life was barely functional. The combination of Sheila's enormous knowledge of nutrition combined with her focus on me as an individual and her attention to detail gave me an outstanding outcome. I became well. I continue to thrive and reach out to Sheila with food, health, and supplement questions because I love learning from her!”
"I have worked with Sheila for several years. Sheila works holistically with the functions of the entire body to address the root cause, not just Band-Aid the symptoms. Most recently, she helped resolve recurrent UTIs that I suffered from for years. I initially exercised every traditional method and was ultimately put on daily antibiotics. When I consulted Sheila, she immediately identified the root cause and put me on course of herbs and vitamins to aid and resolve the underlying issue. Since her course of action, I have not had another UTI, my energy is up and I mentally feel clearer than I have in year. In addition, I have always felt heard and respected. She compassionately listens to understand her clients’ concerns and issues to help them perform at their best. Sheila applies a wealth of knowledge from her practical and professional experience to seek optimal overall wellbeing for her clients. She addresses the whole body’s nutrition and performance, and not just a patch for symptoms. She is the best!”
