“I signed up for Laurie’s loss class this past spring because I was feeling overweight, tired, and scared. I was scared because NOTHING seemed to be working for me anymore. I exercised regularly, ate a low cal. Diet, added more exercise, but nothing was working. My blood pressure was going up and the pounds were not coming off. I was also waking up many times during the night and felt tired all day.
I learned so much each and every week that I attended Laurie’s class. Laurie is very knowledgeable and explains things wonderfully. I was so enthused and interested in learning about my body and why it was reacting the way it was that I signed up to meet with Laurie on a monthly basis.
Since taking the class I have lost a little over a pound a month. I know that is slow and not rapid like I wanted it to be but I also know that this is a much healthier way to lose weight. My blood pressure has now returned to normal and I have so much more energy. My clothes are fitting better than before. I am also sleeping all night! What is interesting about all of this is I haven’t really had to “diet”! Instead I’m eating the way that my body needs me to eat. My husband and I have done Ragbrai for years and I felt better this year than I have for a long time. Laurie was helpful in guiding me as to what to eat and drink.
I am very thankful to Laurie and this class for leading me on the correct path. Laurie researches and answers any questions I might have. I can’t thank her enough!”
“I have been working with Laurie and it’s been life changing. In my mid-forties, I was felt more like 80! I was tired by early afternoon. I had minimal energy. I was experiencing other ‘random’ odd symptoms. I worked with physicians who ran all sorts of tests. Everything came back within the range of normal. However, my limited daily life was anything but normal. A friend shared with me about Laurie & I decided to give it a try. That decision was one of the best of my life. I am now in my 50’s and I feel 100% different. My energy level is back to normal. I am able to work full time, enjoy my family, and just be ‘normal’ again. Laurie has been able to pick up on patterns and deficiencies that needed attention. I have changed the way we eat and its been a blessing for our entire family. Laurie has taught me so much. Its really been life changing. I intend to work with Laurie indefinitely.”
“For many years, I have struggled with Lyme disease and did not find any relief until I met Laurie. Before meeting her, I suffered from extensive physiological and neurological symptoms due to Lyme. I was having a hard time functioning and thought Lyme might kill me. My doctor was unable to help me and suggested I seek specialized help. Little did I realize at the time, that having a healthy gut is vital for managing Lyme symptoms. Laurie was able to help me identify what was going on in my body and discover the best treatment that worked for me. She taught me so much about diet, nutrition, and how my brain is affected by food. After a year or so of altering my diet, she guided me through a bio-botanical Lyme protocol which helped to strengthen my body even more. Laurie has made my treatment both feasible and successful. She has been instrumental in helping me change my life and overcome my symptoms. I am currently about 95% symptom free from Lyme and feel confident of living a healthy and productive life. Laurie is also a professional and gifted therapist who cares about helping people find healing and restoration. I am so grateful for Laurie and would not be where I am at today without her.”
