It’s the winter/holiday season, and many of us have a lot to be thankful for. I’m tempted to even make a list, but I’ll spare you those (nauseating?!) details of my family, work and general happiness. Suffice it to say that I’m truly blessed and look forward to an exciting 2015.
I also know many people who have had amazing successes. This is why I love what I do; the transformation that people can undergo by changing the way they eat can be huge.
Just last week, I was surprised by a Facebook post by one my clients. I was amazed at her generosity, and I’m of course thrilled about the success she’s had from her hard work. In case you missed it, here it is from Jenna who’s a Registered Dietician and works at her own practice, Whole-istic Living.
Testimonial Thursday: I have had a condition called Oral Allergy Syndrome since I was a kid, and many new food allergies/intolerances started developing over the last 5-6 years. It has been extremely uncomfortable and limiting for me. That said, I started working with Certified Holistic Nutrition Consultant Gena Mavuli at Nutrition Basics for the past 9 months and have following the Gut & Psychology Syndrome (“GAPS”) diet, with Gena’s ongoing guidance and support. This diet is extremely unorthodox but is backed up by a lot of science, and it addresses the root causes of many underlying immune-related problems. It is NOT a fad and it’s not for everyone.
A year ago I had baseline allergy skin testing and blood work done at Allergy Physicians in Brookline, and this afternoon I went for follow-up skin testing at Lahey Clinic in Burlington.
I am so happy to announce that in the past year I have gotten rid of 7 food/environmental allergies! The nurses were shocked… my allergist (an MD) at Lahey, however, knew all about the GAPS diet and said he is in full support. It’s been a challenge, especially being a dietitian who didn’t learn a single thing about GAPS in undergrad or any clinical rotations…but I don’t regret any of it for a second. Working with Gena has turned my world upside down in a good way, and I am so thankful. I plan to continue going down this path until all of the allergies are gone based on skin testing and bloodwork. Thanks Gena, and to my family & friends – especially Nancy Molea Volpe and Mike Marchesi for your incredible, unconditional love and support.
