Sweet Words

For me the greatest honour is my clients trusting me with their health. I feel so blessed when they take time to express in words how I have helped them. I love what I do and why I do it.

I have been working with Connie over the past year to do battle with my IBD. My diet needed to change but I am a finicky eater so I needed help figuring out what I could eat that would be good for my gut. With patience Connie has helped me understand how different foods affect the body. We started with some small dietary changes, so that I didn’t become overwhelmed with doing a complete food change over; which we all know does not end well for most people. I have learned to appreciate food and the healing effect it has not only on my gut but on my body and soul.
I now eat in a way that works better for my system. I am now empowered to keep control over my IBD rather than it being empowered to control me!

I’ve been working with Connie for well over a year now and in that time I have gotten the amazing benefits of feeling better internally and externally.
With Connie’s guidance and coaching we have managed to get my weight and my health in check.
It all started with assessing what my goals were and where I wanted to be. Having just turned 44 I knew that my body was changing.
I was having horrible mood swings and always felt tired and lethargic. She helped me realize the importance of attitude, as well as diet makes all the difference.
I had a bit of a crisis last fall and with her advice we quite simply changed the WAY I was eating and how I was eating. Low and behold my tummy trouble reduced AND I started to shed the weight! I’m down 15 pounds in 4 months!
I use her bitters tincture after I eat and no more issues with my reflux.
Who knew that actually eating More food would help me lose the weight!
Well, Connie did!
Thank you so much for helping me feel and look better than I have in years!

I would like to thank you for all of your advice and knowledge that you have given to me over the past few years. Thanks to you I have completely changed the way I eat and use food. Just by taking baby steps with your guidance along the way, I have made huge changes. I LOVE how I feel, and I am so excited about food, cooking, and coming up with new recipes. You are an inspiration to me and I thank you for everything that you have done for me...xoxo!!!

I met Connie at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition. We were taking the same classes and we were both over the age of 50.... lol. The class was small and intimate so we really got to know each other. Connie and I had the same background in bodybuilding, she however got on stage. I was very insecure and nervous about being back in school at the age of 53. I would always introduce myself as a “high school dropout”.
One day, Connie asked me if I would like to join her for dinner after class. I agreed. She asked me, “Why do you always put yourself down”?
I didn’t even realize that I did that!!!! I was just telling my story. Connie brought to light that I need to be gentle with myself, forgive and love myself and do the best I can...
Her words of encouragement are etched in my mind especially when I feel down. It was that simple gesture that makes a HUGE difference in my life.
Connie is a gentle, straight forward and loving individual... I am grateful we crossed paths.
Much love and hugs

Connie and I have been friends for almost 19 years. She’s a very caring person and committed to her work. When she found her passion in nutrition and healthy living, I knew that this was something that she would excel in. She truly has an insatiable appetite for learning and the eagerness to share her knowledge to help others. Just recently, I asked her for advice for my sleeping problem. She gave me many insights and helpful advice. She shared her knowledge with conviction and empathy. She gives me many inspirational ideas and perspectives that I found refreshing and empowering. I actually think of her as more than a Nutritional Practitioner, she can also be a life Coach. I’m truly grateful to have her as an adviser as well as a great friend.
