Good morning! It was good to hear from you! I hope you are doing well. I want to follow up with you to say that I am successfully off of all heartburn drugs, including Nexium. This has been a long journey of “following my gut instincts”, and you have been a very key part of that journey. My final step in that path was to see Dr. Chesty (sp), who is a Women’s Digestive Health specialist. She did an endoscopy to make sure there was no reflux happening or inflammation in GI tract. After that was established, she very, very slowly weaned me off of the drug Nexium. I am happy to say I feel so much better off of it that when I took it. I know that sounds crazy, but I felt it was wrenching my insides, as my body tried to produce the necessary acids and enzymes to digest my food. I do not think this “miracle drug” was meant for long-term use as my doctors prescribed it. I am a firm believer of listening to one’s body signals, and being kind to it by the foods we choose to ingest, the sanctity of a relaxed meal, and good company of family and friends.
So, here I am today, with more money in my pocket, better digestive health than I have been in for a long time, and a clearer knowledge of what foods I can tolerate and what foods my system cannot. I want to thank you for aiding me towards my goals. You were extremely helpful with your counsel, and handouts of information.
I would highly recommend you to others,
With kind regards,
Since starting the six month program, my hormonal balance has greatly improved and I am eating much healthier. I have had significant weight loss (20 pounds - and that wasn't even one of my reasons for starting your program!) and have a much greater awareness and knowledge on hormones and dietary issues.
Oh my gosh....I'm so excited that I had to share!
I had my appt with the Endocrinologist this morning and I had forgotten that I have to weigh in when I go there every time----I'm down 10 pounds since I was weighed 2 weeks ago (I know scales vary a little--but still) and my blood pressure was 112/76---the best it's ever been!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!"

"Jaclyn did an amazing job as not only a holistic nutrition coach, but also as a wonderful supporter and educator. She always went out of her way to answer any questions I had, and if she didn't know the answer herself, she would go above and beyond to find out for me.
Jaclyn did a great job with pointing me and my family to the path of a much healthier lifestyle. She wasn't pushy, but let you go at your own pace, and at the same time was encouraging me to make healthier choices.
Jaclyn helped me to explore different foods like different kinds of vegetables, grains, oils, etc - which I never would have done without this program!
One of the things that Jaclyn suggested for my stomach issues (IBS) was to try cutting out gluten. well, Ive been gluten-free for about 3 months now, and my stomach does feel much better and I don't have as many stomach problems.
I am amazed how much better I feel just by making healthier choices and being conscious of what I put into my body, and if it weren't for Jaclyn, I would not be feeling as healthy as I do today!"
