When I came to see Lori, I was the sickest I've ever been. My Ulcerative Colitis (UC) flared up and I had worked with my doctor for five months to get it back into remission; none of the medication was working. My doctor strongly recommended that I get on an injectable medication. I felt that I needed to exhaust all other possibilities before making such a life-altering decision. I have a great doctor, but we spent very little time discussing my diet and how it could effect my UC. After my first appointment with Lori, I felt hopeful and encouraged. She gave me very practical steps I could implement after a quick trip to the grocery store along with herbs and supplements. Lori was very honest; healing takes time and the changes wouldn't be immediate. At every step in the journey, Lori was there for support, advice, and education. With every change she recommended, her concern was always that they wouldn't be overwhelming and that they would be relatively easy to implement. For me, it took six months to get back into remission. I now have the tools I need to keep my health under control and I feel better than I have in years. I am still careful with my food choices, but now I have the ability to indulge a little with my kids and not feel awful. I've gained weight in a good way! This summer (2019) I've been enjoying the vegetables from my own garden. I'm so thankful for the ability to garden and that I have the energy to do so. If you are on the fence about making an appointment with Lori, just do it! My only regret is that I didn't see her sooner.
I am so grateful to have Lori's knowledge, experience, wisdom, deeply personal concern, and encouraging tailored approach to healing as a key part of my healing journey. I sought out Lori for help with Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Irritable Bowel and sleep issues. She has truly been a blessing in my life. I speak of Lori and recommend her frequently, trusting her implicitly. Additional information I learn from other sources substantiates “why” Lori has led me on my specific healing journey these past 8 months. With her help I further understand how our body functions. ALL the way through a recent online webinar, I found myself thinking, “No wonder I have improved so dramatically - this is exactly what Lori has helped me with!!!” So thank you Lori for being my healing coach - my healing ‘personal trainer.’ You are a godsend in my life - getting 'Trena' back! Certainly, I have work to do and lifestyle choices to continue to make to manage and eliminate symptoms. Those choices are so worth it. With your ongoing support, it is possible and energizing as I experience new levels of wellness, tangibly reaping the benefits of my conscious choices. Be blessed Lori, as your help blesses others!
I would recommend Lori to anyone that is interested in their health and lifestyle. Initially I came to Lori to help me conduct my “annual” review of all the vitamins and supplements I was taking. In the past I had periodically met with integrative MDs to review what I was taking but a friend recommended I call the University of Maryland Integrative Center and get paired up with a person associated with their school. That’s how I found Lori! We had an initial consultation almost two years ago and we’ve been working together ever since.
Although I am a healthy person that eats plant-based foods, exercises regularly and routinely reads and incorporates lots of lifestyle changes into my life, I have learned so much from Lori. She is a very good listener, is highly knowledgeable and can easily communicate with me to share her thoughts on different items, as well as, incorporate my personal style into her recommendations. She is flexible enough to adjust her recommendation if it becomes necessary and is very responsive to my questions and concerns. We cover things such as lifestyle, diet, herbs, supplements, and environmental items such as cleaning products, perfumes, body lotions and deodorants. I immediately felt the difference in my body after taking the first herbal tincture she customized for me. She sends me recommendations and studies that I would never have found on my own. Lori has helped me set health and lifestyle goals to promote my continued good health. I feel better and have more energy with the changes I have made. You don’t need to be a person with lots of health issues to get a huge benefit from working with Lori. She can help propel your mind and body to the next level of a healthy lifestyle.
