Jennifer Lewis, Celiac Disease

I highly recommend Susie to anyone who is looking to really improve their health.  When my 4 yr old was diagnosed with celiacs disease this year, we were in desperate need of nutritional advice.  My daughter was presenting with extreme irritability.  We knew we needed to do more than the standard gluten free diet, but didn’t know where to start.  Susie worked so quickly to get us on the right supplements, do the right testing (food intolerance, stool and hair test), and make the appropriate diet changes.  Removing gluten did help with my daughter’s symptoms, but the real improvements came later with supplements, more whole foods, & an elimination diet.  The changes have been dramatic.  I never would have guessed that diet and supplements could make such a huge change in a child’s happiness.  When we started seeing Susie, we knew we had 1 celiac child, but didn’t know that her two sisters also had food intolerances and intestinal inflammation. Susie has encouraged us from the beginning to treat the whole family, and as a result we are all getting healthier.

Susie is extremely knowledgeable about nutrients and biochemistry – much more than most of the mainstream doctors we have seen in the past.  She can often predict a diagnosis and suggest an appropriate remedy prior to seeing test results.  Her technical competence and gentle approach have a profound calming effect on me.  Susie is an excellent listener and very patient with her clients.  I am always so much more relaxed after a session with Susie.

Susie really cares about her patients and will often check-in via email to see how we are doing.  She often sends recipes or supplement suggestions that she thinks would benefit us.  I really don’t know what we have done without Susie this year, and hate to think about what we will so someday when we return to the US!  Thank you so much Susie for all you have done for our family!
