AMAZING!!! I have been sick for 18 years with IBS type symptoms. My GI specialist recommended that I see Andrea for help with the FODMAP diet. I started immediately and am soooo grateful for the help. ( I already was eating mostly healthy for the last 10 years, but was still had terrible symptoms.) Six weeks later, by the time my colonoscopy/endoscopy was scheduled, I was almost diarrhea and pain free! The colonoscopy / endoscopy results showed that I had lymphocytic colitis and I started on steroids immediately. Now it was time to start re-intoducing the trouble causing fodmap sugars. Andrea was able to talk to my GI specialist directly and counsel me through all the questions regarding this particular diagnosis, the diet and the steroids. It really helped to have everyone on the same page, instead of trying to figure it out all myself. With the unpredictable pain and diarrhea, it was so easy to meet with Andrea online without ever having to leave the house. I always received a follow-up report via email that I could refer to. I really believe the personal one on one counselling with Andrea made all the difference for me. There are so many pitfalls and so much conflicting internet information. Andrea usually already had a pretty good idea of where the diet problems were and my questions were always answered. She took time to discover what I missed eating most and then found great alternatives. I am now back to eating almost everything and am feeling great. I do not believe I would have had success with steroids alone, as I still inadvertently occasionally eat the wrong food and have symptoms even though I still take steroids. IGNITE NUTRITION has been life changing for me!
