Thank you to the following clients for working with me and sharing their testimony!. Note: All of the below testimonies were given with written permission.
"For about a year I suffered with severe indigestion and stomach pain. As a college student highly involved on campus, this added stress to my life greatly affected my ability to enjoy my work as a student and student leader. I had severe stomach pain after nearly every meal, which affected my ability to concentrate on tasks and to enjoy meals with my friends. Sometimes the pain was so severe that I could not get out of bed. I eliminated gluten and dairy from my diet, but I still experienced problems.
Since being on the LEAP program, I’ve been able to avoid foods that cause inflammation, and the amount of times I feel sick after eating has drastically decreased. I started the elimination diet, and because I let my stomach heal, I’ve even been able to reintroduce foods that I once was intolerant to. I now know which foods to stay away from, and I’m able to live a normal life and enjoy eating again. My stress levels have significantly decreased since I’ve been able to take control of my health. I highly recommend LEAP from anyone suffering from severe stomach and bowel problems, especially for those people who have gone gluten and/or dairy free and still have not seen adequate results. Because everyone’s body is unique, foods that someone might think are fine can cause inflammation for him or her. It’s important to know that all kinds of foods can cause inflammation."

"For the past seven years, I dealt with chronic migraines. I tried multiple preventative medications without long term success; never going more than a couple of weeks without a migraine. In the four months since starting LEAP, my migraines have essential resolved. I highly recommend the LEAP program."

"I used to suffer from headaches, sinus congestion, stomach pains and nausea, fatigue, anxiety and depression on and off for 11 years, and more frequent and severe symptoms starting in about 2008. Since being on the LEAP program, I've experienced the following: Along with identifying ways to reduce stress and manage emotional distress – I decided to take a more serious look into my diet, asking Maria for assistance in this area. She suggested the LEAP program as an option to help identify some foods that I may be sensitive to that could be a root of some of my symptoms. My headaches, stomach pains, sinus congestion, and fatigue significantly decreased during the first month and continuing months on the LEAP diet. It’s not that it magically cured all my symptoms, but it did help my gut/body heal and paying closer attention to what I’m putting into my body has increased my well being overall. When I’ve swayed from the diet, I have noticed an increase in my symptoms. Throughout the process of going through the LEAP program, I’ve gained knowledge about nutrition, my body specifically, how my diet interacts with my body and well-being as a whole, and how to be more mindful of what I’m eating from first hand experience, which is significantly more difficult to learn and apply elsewhere."

"I found Maria searching on the Internet for someone that specialized in digestive issues.
We talked about the option of doing a MRT test, she showed me what the test results looked like and I was excited to try it. I had my results in a short time and we set up a meeting and she went over everything in great detail.
Together we reviewed the foods I could eat and we had a plan written out. After the first 2 weeks I lost 15 lbs and my digestive issues had started to improve. We worked on my diet adding foods back in and evaluating the results.
It's now been 6 months and I'm not cured from the colitis but by following my diet I have quality of life back again and I can go out and enjoy events and family outings".
Donna - colitis. MRT/LEAP client.
"I am now eating healthier, overall more relaxed and more secure with myself. Able to not let things stress me out so much... Given the different food sensitivities I have, I am now willing to try new foods. The fear of trying new gluten free recipes has subsided. Maria has an understanding and patience that others without food sensitivities don't have." Cindy. 6 month health coaching client.
"Since being on the LEAP program, my inflammation has decreased and my stomach issues have lessened. I highly recommend LEAP for anyone suffering from arthritis and/or stomach problems."
Christine - Rheumatoid Arthritis for 35 years and IBS/colitis. MRT/LEAP client
"After enduring several years of stomach pains, sometimes disabling, I began a gluten and dairy free lifestyle. It has been challenging and frustrating at times to continue to eat this way, but didn't want to go back to having horrible pain. Maria was a huge help in listening, encouraging, and providing many recipes of her own and those that she has found throughout the years. She organized a personal cookbook for me and the recipes are delicious!"
