Testimonials



Wendy Caldwell

"This course gave me the confidence to feed my baby in a natural, nutritious way."

Jill Donahue

"I didn't realize how simple it is to make such a difference in my child's health."

Kristen Verschoor-Owens

"I learned more in this 2 hour seminar than any book has ever taught me."

Jennifer Montoni

"After hearing from doctors that both of my children's stomach problems could only be corrected with surgery, we were devastated. Meredith's knowledge has helped us discover methods for controlling their food sensitivities and has helped eliminate the adverse symptoms in a natural, non-intrusive way. It has made all the difference in our lives."

Jodi Labelle

"After years of dealing with my children's moodiness, stomach aches and runny noses, Meredith led me to the experts who helped me come to understand the root causes behind the discomfort my children were experiencing. Now life is so much easier for my whole family."

Jacquie Foran

"As a working mom, learning that my son had many food sensitivities was overwhelming and I did not know where to begin. Meredith worked closely with me, sharing her knowledge and her own experiences. As a result, I am thrilled to tell you that my son no longer suffers; his rotation diet has eliminated most of his food sensitivities!"

Emma Hayden

"My child finally sleeps through the night! With the use of books, articles and personal accounts, Meredith explained how chiropractors, cranial osteopaths and classical homeopaths could help my daughter. Most importantly, she alleviated my fears about seeking non-traditional help. She is a fantastic link between the natural world and the world of parenting."

Franca Impastato

"When I first met Meredith, my son was only 5 months old and he had already been hospitalized 3 times. Each time, the diagnosis was a virus. I didn't know what to do; he also had colic and was a fussy child. Meredith opened my eyes and many doors for my family and me. I learned that my son was actually having severe reactions to foods that he was eating (rice and oat cereals). If it were not for Meredith, I don't know what my son's health would be like today. I don't know how to thank her for all the phone calls and everything she has done for me."

Mike Gentile

"Good morning, Meredith – hope you are well. Just an update that Georgia's skin (eczema) is doing terrific and her eating and sleeping has drastically improved. Many thanks! You have had a great impact on her."

Courtney Kada

"I wanted to share with you that within 3 days of making the dietary changes that you recommended the eczema on my son’s face cleared up! We'd been fighting this patch since before Christmas with creams and antibiotics and nothing had worked. Not only is his rash gone he rarely has temper tantrums any more (previously he was having numerous every day). Also, for the first time he is now having solid bowel movements! I can’t thank you enough!"
