Most digestive disorders are a sign that something is is out of balance and can often be traced back to a bacterial/yeast imbalance or overgrowth, inflammation, damage to your intestinal lining. or a deficiency in digestive juices.
The good news…
For many, changes to your diet and lifestyle along with some supportive supplements is often all it takes for the body to begin healing! Together, we will look for the root cause of your issues — not just chase the symptoms.
I was diagnosed with SIBO over 7 years ago and had been struggling with digestive and inflammation issues ever since, along with many other symptoms tied to it. I sought help from various sources, bought a book, read online, probiotics for 3 years, adjusted my diet, etc., but never found any good or lasting solutions. A year ago I began to have unbearable, constant worsening digestive symptoms along with all kinds of skin issues, muscle weakness, and even more fatigue and inflammation than before. I contacted Leslie last May and did a food sensitivity test and began working with her following a low FODMAP diet, with a few adjustments including avoiding the sensitive foods, along with various supplements. Leslie is wonderful to work with! She breaks it down and takes one thing at a time, is very positive and motivating. I did not feel overwhelmed like I thought I would. I could not believe how quickly I felt better! It is a work in progress for me only because it is up to ME to stick to the diet and do what I need to do and it will take some time to completely heal, but I've had AMAZING results. I am so pleased and would highly recommend Leslie!
A Dr. in my hometown actually referred Leslie, and I am SO thankful that he did. Also, I have been seeing a Gastroenterologist, who was very pleased that I was consulting a Registered Dietitian, and he encouraged me to continue, as he put it, she will know way more about your diet, and foods to eat and eliminate than I do! I could not agree more. Leslie, is very knowledgeable and helpful. She listens with a caring ear, and is willing to go above and beyond to be helpful. She is also very encouraging, which is very important. Especially when you are going through digestive difficulties. It is so hard to feel like you cant eat or enjoy food anymore. She not only helped me feel like there was hope and healing, but she has wonderful resources, and amazingly good, and normal recipes! And, I am happy to report that with her expertise, I feel like I am healing. Yes, it is an ongoing process, but I am so thankful to know that I have her in my corner, and I can reach out anytime I need to.
