    I had recently retired and wanted to examine and make changes in my lifestyle and eating habits. I felt that professional guidance would be helpful in creating the optimal plan for improving my health. After completing an extensive intake form at home that Diane had sent me, I spent several hours with her for an initial consult.

     

    Diane possesses a wealth of knowledge about many aspects of
    health, and I hoped that our session would provide me with information, inspiration, and focus. By the end of our meeting, I felt that all three goals
    were met. Diane’s manner was pleasant and gentle, and she explained complex concepts in clear, understandable terms.
    She asked questions and made suggestions without being overbearing or
    judgmental. Diane was sensitive to the emotional and psychological issues that
    have an impact on weight and health, and her warmth and concern made the
    process a comfortable learning experience. Diane’s assessment tools and
    recommendations are not the typical orthodox ones that are easily accessed
    through mainstream sources. The plan she suggested was individualized and
    included components that I could incorporate into my daily routine without
    exorbitant cost or time. Since our session I’ve been taking steps towards
    better health, and I’m grateful to Diane for her support of my journey.

    I have recently retired and am going through a time of transition. My first goal was to examine and make changes in lifestyle and diet in order to improve my state of health.

    I’ve had a long history of eating too much of the wrong kinds of foods (white breads, pasta, sugary desserts) and in turn feeling sluggish and tired all the time.  After two children, my previously-thin figure started to balloon in all the wrong places. I knew I had to do something, but I was too overwhelmed at the thought of undoing 34 years of eating habits at one time and honestly did not know the best “first steps.”

    At the recommendation of a friend, I hopped over to Diane’s website to check out whether she may be able to help me get a grip on my eating choices. I was really impressed with the depth and variety of Diane’s training and decided that paying the cost of an initial consultation was a risk worth taking if it could potentially lead me to a healthier, happier lifestyle.

    Diane’s assessment paperwork was….dare I say….fun to complete! Just writing out my eating habits and other lifestyle choices was helpful for a self assessment on what I was going wrong.  During our call, Diane opened my eyes to the misinformation we receive through the mainstream media on what’s good and bad for our bodies. She effectively made the connection between the processing done to our food and the changes we feel and see in our bodies.  She was able to suggest some small steps to get me moving in the right direction without making me feel overwhelmed or intimidated.  I’m still a “work in progress,” but I feel I have some useful tools now that I can tap into when faced with choices at the grocery store, in a restaurant or when staring at the treats in my workplace break room.

    Thanks to a post on the Tailor & The Cook Facebook page by my friend Tim Hardiman, I found Diane.  I had just come from a very dis-hearting Doctor visit.  I have been a type-2 Diabetic for ten years now. Add to that high Blood Pressure and High Cholesterol and frequent episodes with gout.  The blood tests showed: My A1c at 8.3, BP at 140/93, my cholesterol at 342 and my weight at 197.  I had been following the standard diabetic diet, taking 8 pills a day and steadily gaining weight.  The diet wasn’t working and I was on a clear path to insulin injections (I hate needles).  After reading Tim’s post and reading Diane’s website I decided to take a different direction.  After filling out Diane’s intake form, I was already convinced I was on the right path.  I sat down and set goals I wanted to attain in one year.  Maybe lofty goals but I think I can attain them.  I hope to 1) reduce my weight by at least 20%  (at 2months in I’m down 10%)  2) get off my diabetes medication (at 2 months in my morning BS is 102)  3) bring my Cholesterol into normal range (will know in 2 months where I stand) , get my BP down to 120/80 (some days I’m there but am averaging 138/87) and finally get my metabolism revived!   I am so grateful to Diane for all the common sense information, tips and recipes.  We worked together once a week for about two months. This is a lifestyle change that I hope will last a lifetime.  The path is not always easy, but the journey is well worth the effort.

      Denise – I am so pleased with your progress!!  It was truly a pleasure working with you.   With your determination, I have no doubt you will keep moving in the right direction and reach all of your goals.  Thank you Tim for enabling this connection, and Denise, for the opportunity to share.   [Denise and I worked together once a week for about 2 months).

  • Danielle

    There is so much I would like to learn about improving my health and Diane is a great person to learn from! Her perspective is quite different from what I’ve known, but it’s exciting to learn something new and feel great because of it! She is very supportive and quick to answer emails!

  • Lisa

    Diane, I cannot thank you enough for all the information you provided and how detailed it all is.  Although it’s a lot to take in, it’s just as exciting at the same time.  You really are a wealth of knowledge and have actually put to rest some unanswered questions.  I truly feel you sincerely care about helping our son and we thank you for that.

  • Nancy

    I have been working with Diane for support of my thyroid and gut health. What a blessing to have her guiding me on my daily journey to better health. She has provided updated health information. I feel  comfortable sharing personal health information and have the sense that she wants to improve my health! She has a passion for what she does! I have purchased top quality supplements and products that I trust are worth the money. Thank you Diane!

  • Alschnier

    I have been a vegetarian for almost 30 years, & vegan for the last 13 of those. Diane helped me transition to a more complete & balanced diet that includes organic, pastured dairy, eggs, & meat. The process took time, as my body needed to be reintroduced to these foods gradually. I can say that I feel healthier overall, & my digestion has improved considerably. I tried to think of a nice way to say this, but the bottom line is, I’m not gassy all day long any more. My digestion has been great, thanks to this change.

    Diane is very prepared for each consult session, which means that each hour is packed with information pertinent to my health concerns.  Although her knowledge of health, nutrition and the workings of the human body are vast, she is able to distill it all down and outline for me that which is most important for addressing my issues.  I am seeking her help, because i have a few nagging, chronic problems, and because i, myself, do not want to invest the time and energy to do my own research.  I can say with confidence that Diane is a local expert, and she is extremely generous with her information.  Whereas, with my primary care physician, i can drive for an hour, wait for another hour and then have only 10 rushed minutes once a year, with Diane, she is willing to spend as much time as i need: taking the time to hear my side of the story, and also answer my many questions.  Diane is empowering me to take several steps to improve my health, which ultimately will improve my quality of life– what a gift!

    I am writing to express what a wonderful bio-communication
    session I had with Diane. I do not live near Diane, so she suggested that we
    conduct the consultation and process via the computer using the internet and
    Skype. I had received the hand cradle prior to our meeting and easily and
    quickly registered and installed the software (I think it took maybe 7 minutes
    total). The system she uses is state of the art and shockingly accurate.  Diane ran a variety of scans providing me with a well rounded picture of my overall health as well as the areas in need of attention. 

    The scans were very accurate with what I know is going on with my body and they also validated a few suspicions I had.  I have Progressive Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis and I am a two time ovarian cancer survivor.  So, you can imagine that I have had my fair
    share of testing conducted in my time. I can say without doubt, that Diane’s
    system (and her unsurpassed knowledge) gave me more answers in our hour session
    than any multitude of tests have ever given me!!  As an example, on one scan performed, ‘scarring’ came up as interference in my healing. Multiple Sclerosis means ‘many scars.’ I would say that was pretty accurate!

    As additional examples, on one scan, I showed 34 biomarkers out of range. One single product (which is available through Real Food Taste Good) brought 31 of them back in range.  On another scan of my teeth, problems were detected.  One I could explain and the other had I a ‘feeling’ something was wrong. I have since gone to the dentist for a checkup. During the cleaning the hygienist reported excellent dental health although, she did discover piece peppercorn lodged far up in between the identified teeth, that normal flossing could not reach!!!  Again, I would say accurate!! All of the scans and information are sent to you via email after the session for you to review and refer back to (which you will many times!!), along with recommendations to consider to assist you in your path to wellness.

    Diane offers an excellent line of products and many valuable services and is always respectful of individual preferences.  She willingly shares her vast knowledge of
    nutrition (and so much more) and you can tell that she sincerely has your optimum
    health at heart. Finding a knowledgeable practitioner who shares the common
    belief that food can cure has inspired and empowered me on my path to wellness.
    Thank you Diane, for ALL you have done for me!! Your support has been life
    changing.

    In this comment I am going to try to describe how I feel about meeting with Diane, what she has done for me, how it has improved my life and the gratitude I feel for her, which will not be easy because there are no words to describe the positive influence she has had overall on my physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

    We began meeting a few months ago via Skype. At first I was a little nervous because I thought we would need to be in the same room, but I had used Skype a little so I thought I’d give it a try. To be honest, it was actually a little more relaxing for me! I had the comfort of my own room and was more relaxed than I would have been in a face to face setting where I would normally have to be conscientious about how I was sitting and/or have generally more anxiety. It was perfect.

    We got right into the nitty gritty of my overall health, and in the first meeting I felt comfortable enough to disclose very personal information to Diane. She and I have discussed a HUGE variety of issues in my life, and she is always patient and full of the best advice I have ever heard, and I have heard advice from friends and professionals that never helped me as much! She is also very patient about repeating herself if I am not sure about something or forget something. She sends an extremely detailed report after each meeting, which is great. It relieves me of having to write notes while we are talking and then I have it in my email to read and re-read as many times as I like or refer back to when needed.

    Diane did her bio-communication testing on me yesterday for the first time. It was extremely interesting and proved itself to me. I knew about a few issues I was having and it picked up on them and I fully intend to try the supplements it recommended.

    I plan to continue working with Diane for a long time! Whenever I have a question she welcomes it and has helped me deal with some pretty major situations. Thanks Diane!
