It looks like you definitely have foods that are making your body angry, your immune system weak and you just wiped out and frustrated. So, let’s get right to it. I would recommend definitely reaching out for some help with this… More often than not- once all the answers are on the table, it’s an easy fix!
If you already know you want some help figuring this all out, you don’t have to wait any more – you can schedule a time to chat with me about it here.
I’m so glad you took the symptom survey! Sometimes you can live with something until you just can’t anymore, until it gets the best of you and you have to claim your power again! I am sure that by now you have tried lots of diets, not eating certain foods to see if that will help and everything works for a little bit maybe but then it’s so hard to maintain that you just feel like you are living in deprivation daily! I know for a fact, that you have not tried anything like what I am offering.
I was one of those people, tried EVERYTHING, I was a little skeptical about doing another food sensitivity test because all of the others including the ALCAT didn’t do crap for me, I actually felt worse. THIS MRT test, holy cow, CHANGED MY LIFE~ When my clients have results of numbers of 36 and above on this survey, there is often multiple things going on a one time. I find that to really get to the bottom of what is causing all of theses messages from your immune system, there needs to be some food sensitivity testing- I use the MRT test. Mediator Release test. You can read more about it here.
I know this can be a frustrating place to be in… most of the time this space keeps us fighting with out body instead of working with our body to shed light on what is actually at the root of the issue. Sometimes we get so deep in just living with our “normal” body sensations that it’s hard and frustrating to even know if you are peeling the right layers away to clearly get to what is causing of your discomfort.
It’s like this– it’s a sunny day but definitely overcast, you know the sun is shining up there somewhere, but there are too many clouds to see even a beam of light shine through, even when a few clouds move out of the way, it’s still hard to see the light. It’s just like this when there are many layers on top of what is actually causing the issue to begin with.
Sometimes there is more going on underneath all of the chronic low grade inflammation that can often cause constipation, bloating, headaches, fatigue, chronic sinus issues, skin problems etc. Those symptoms can simply be messages of a bigger problem that is screaming to be addressed and noticed. Usually this takes a bit of time and attention to really tap in and see what’s going on and from there, it’s usually very clear after the chronic inflammation caused by certain foods is lifted.
Your health starts in your gut, so, if that is not healthy, as I have said before, the rest of your entire system suffers and slowly begins to dis-function and you slowly begin to disconnect from your body and fight it. This is the start of many years of pain, frustration and possibly robbing you of your quality of life. So if you have been feeling this way for a little bit now, I want to give you something to start to work with to see if you can’t start to peel back some of the food layers.

You can also get started with this APP, it’s called mySymptoms Food and Symptom Tracker, its for apple and android. Just a little note, please do not use this as a way to judge yourself, please use this as a tool to see into your eating habits and how you are feeling. This is going to help you really pay attention to how your body feels after you eat a meal, this will shed light on all of the different ways you might be feeling after eating certain foods.
To take it a little bit deeper, another tool that I would love for you to use would be my do it yourself course, The Food Anthropologist Journal ECourse filled with actions steps, audio to guide you to get you going. You may not need my one on one help at this point yet, this ecourse will certainly help you shed some light on what is going on and what foods could possibly be making you feel so blah!
This is the first step is paying attention to how foods are affecting the way you are moving through life. Sometimes this can be hard, but keep going, you already know what to do, you already know what is best for yourself, if you have already decided that you want help, awesome!

Just to give you a little insight to the way I work, diet plans and I don’t get along, trying to cram every “superfood” into your diet doesn’t work either… you can read more on my view around dieting here. The long and short of it is the harm that dieting causes is real and continues with each cycle of dieting.
There are biological and emotional damages that are done and go further every time that we diet. Dieting is a form of starvation. Our bodies combat starvation at the cellular level. Survival of the fattest. Those who had enough fat stores in the past were the only ones that would survive. Our bodies are still equipped in this way.
Chronic dieting teaches the body to retain more fat when you start eating again. Low fat diets double the enzymes that make and store fat in the body. Biological compensation. Chronic dieting slows the weight loss with each attempt to lose weight.
It is shown in rat and human studies that dieting decreases metabolism, lowers the body’s need for energy, which increases binges and cravings. Yo-yo dieters have a higher overall death rate and 2X the normal risk of dying from heart disease, thin or obese. The harm in yo yo dieting is equal to the harm of staying obese. Stable weight is best. Just chew on that for a minute…. Can you tell I want to stop this diet madness?
Be kind to yourself, come from a place of curiosity. Get curious about your habits. It’s a process, complete with ups and downs. This is NOT a linear process. It’s like investing in a long term stock.
Eating what you “should”, only serves to disconnect you to your true likes and dislikes of food. It disconnects you from your internal self and preferences.
If you are feeling like you just want answers, let’s chat and have a discovery session and get clear on what you need to do to create better health and a eating habits. When I say eating habits, I literally mean tapping into your intuition and using THAT as a guide to fuel your body.
All too often we are so concerned with what the outside world says we “should eat” that we often completely ignore our cravings, food likes and dislikes- which by the way takes the pleasure completely out of eating and you become all OCD about feeding yourself, then you can’t lose weight, etc…. you become so disconnected that it’s hard to get back to being connected and listening and moving from your gut… I can help with that, I WANT you to reconnect with your inner body wisdom.
