ā€œI came to see Melanie because I wanted to lose weight. Those last twenty pounds are always the hardest to come off, until I saw Melanie. She told me I was sensitive to dairy and wheat and that I had a candida infection. After following her program the weight seemed to fall off. I feel better now than I have in my entire life!ā€  --Marilyn Daveda

"I began seeing Melanie in March 2014 at the recommendation of a friend who had been seeing her for a while. Little did I know, that visit would change my life! I have fought with my weight literally my entire life. I had tried everything possible to lose and never became even one pound lighter. I was beyond frustrated with medical doctors who constantly told me that my fatigue was from depression (which was not the case), or the famous line 'If you would loose some weight, you would feel much better!' (Hey...there's a thought! ). Needless to say, I wasn't going into my first visit with much expectation of anything, other than what I had been told for years by other doctors.  However, after losing my dad not even a year previous,  I knew I had to do something and fast. I was spiraling quickly into not even liking myself any longer.

"Melanie was a breath of fresh air from the moment we met. She listened intently and was determined to find the root cause. I was completely speechless as she told me that my body had been working so hard AGAINST itself, there was no way I could loose weight! My thyroid, adrenals, pituitary, hormones, and nervous system were all issues that we addressed that day. I began supplements as she recommended them and followed the food changes she suggested as well. 
I can't tell you how much better I feel! Changing my lifestyle of eating wasn't easy, but it has been amazing to me to watch my body thrive on these foods that are so nutritionally good for me....not just easy fillers. Today, I am sixty-two pounds lighter and losing more each day! My thyroid is the only issue we continue to work on because all the other areas have healed themselves during this time of change! Melanie comes with very high recommendation from me! I could not imagine where I would be had I not given this a chance. My 'over it' spirit has completely turned into a sweet spirit of hope!"  --Amy Smith
