I'm incredibly grateful for the connections I've made with my clients, they make my life pretty awesome. Recently I asked for feedback, I had no idea I would receive a LOVE letter!!! Thanks Michael and Mia!
I am the subject of this very informative post. It has been a couple of weeks since I've had my one-on-one with Mindy suggesting the tips listed here. I had 4, (yes 4) panic attacks in 3 days and met with 3 doctors and now I am getting my act together, thanks to her.
Take note- they work -I am sure the nutritional benefits will become more apparent as time goes by. However, the physiological benefits started the very first day we met. She gave me instrumental guidance along with teaching (not preaching) some simple things I could change in my everyday life if I just took about 2-3 "seconds" to breathe and think positive. So simple, right? Well, yes it actually is!
One of the best things was Mindy never made me feel stupid. There were no dumb questions and she answered anything I had to ask and never belittled me for not knowing. In fact, quite the opposite. She gave me positive reinforcement by asking questions.
Yes, I have known Mindy for a few years, but she listened to my way of living and made suggestions that worked with my style (which means I do not cook and she helped me select food that fit into my culinary non-skills).
She has taught me about all the "stuff" that is put into packaging food that I have never given a second thought.
She took into consideration my high blood pressure along with high cholesterol and steered me in the direction of healthy choices.
So, that is my experience, I highly recommend you to have your own one-on-one with Mindy, you will not regret it."
-Mia's situation is unique; when doing research for her there were several factors I had to keep in mind. She was born with a hiatal hernia so there are certain foods she can't digest, and her body will let her know if she has made a misstep with her food decisions. She must know what's in a dish before she eats it.
In 1996 she was diagnosed with breast cancer and the odors of certain foods sometimes "smell" like cancer. There are mornings she's not able to eat anything because she's so nauseated. We collaborated on a list of options to satisfy her nutritional needs, and avoid those foods, specifically at breakfast time.
Then, unbelievably, three years ago she had thyroid cancer. For about a year after the treatments she couldn't taste foods and had a severe dry mouth. Even now the dry mouth still flares up, the most delicious foods may taste bad.
And finally, when she's unable to run due to a flair up of plantar fasciitis, she experiences hot flashes after eating something sugary sweet.
