No More Hot Flash, Headache or Psoriasis.

I feel GREAT. I haven't had a hot flash or headache, my psoriasis is subsiding and I've lost 13 pounds! I feel so much more energetic. I'm loving the results.

"With my case of MS, I can't thank Sheli enough."

I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in April of 2008. Up until 2014, I was in a constant battle with having exacerbations more months out of the year than not. With my case of MS, I would lose mobility in my legs; have optic neuritis (VERY often), minimal control of bladder, and of course the numbness and tingling. I had tried ALL of the medications on the market in the US. None of them seemed to work, except one, Tysabri. When I started Tysabri, I wasn’t aware that the medication was only meant for you to take short term, as it has the propensity to cause PML; a brain disease, in which as a result can be fatal! After being on Tysabri for a couple years, I ended up losing my insurance. I was fired from my job, with me having to be out so often on extended medical leave, being a contributing factor. Without insurance, I simply couldn’t afford to continue on with Tysabri. So, I was switched to another medication. This one is one of 2 new oral pills for MS that had just become available. Unfortunately, after taking this medication, nothing improved. It actually got worse! I was back to having flare-ups back-to-back! I went back to my doctor and she told me that the medicine was not working, but I should still continue to take it. This made absolutely no sense to me.

Out of my pure frustration, and heartbreak, I was determined that there had to be another way, a better way! I began to do my own research on the computer on holistic ways to treat Multiple Sclerosis. I also began to look up holistic doctors and such in my area. I found 4 in my area that specifically stated that they had experience with MS patients. I actually ended up making appointments with 3 of them. Sheli of course was one of them. She was actually the last one that I stumbled across. I called and spoke with her on the phone initially, and she seemed so sweet and helpful. I still had the other appointments left and had to make a decision on whom to go with. I still didn’t have insurance, so I would have to pay out of pocket to whomever I went with. So I couldn’t afford to try them all out. After much prayer, in my heart I just felt that I should go to Sheli. That has been the best decision of my life!!! As I write this, it has almost been a year since I started seeing Sheli. I have only had 2 EXTREMELY minimal symptoms. One was in the beginning of me seeing her, so I really don’t count that one, because we were in the process of changing my habits. And the other was still not to the magnitude that I was used to for the past 6 years. I have not lost mobility in my legs AT ALL!

After doing blood work with Sheli, we found that my body was severely deficient in 14 different nutrients (these the doctor had never tested before), and I was borderline deficient in about 10 more. Sheli put together a diet for me, as well as supplements for me to take based on the report from the blood work. Since then I have felt like a NEW PERSON! I can’t thank Sheli (and of course God) enough. She is truly an angel in my eyes. I absolutely love her, not only as a nutritionist, but also as a person. She is one of the most humble and genuinely caring people that I have met. From the first encounter with her, you can truly tell that she does this because she truly cares! There has never been a time when she has not checked on me, called me, and most importantly held me accountable for the changes that I was making. I truly thank her for all of her work. I am constantly telling people that they should go see her for whatever they may be dealing with. If you are dealing with any health issues (and especially if you’re in the boat I was in), please go see Sheli. It has truly been a blessing to me!!!

"My sleep returned to normal, my overall pain level was drastically reduced and I started to feel like my old self."

Sheli can be credited with dramatically improving my health in more ways than one. My decades-long digestive issues, unresolved by a series of doctors, vanished immediately following Sheli's recommendations. Subsequently, pain resulting from a disc condition that was awakening me every hour at night was substantially reduced by several changes to my diet along with the addition of certain supplements. My sleep returned to normal, my overall pain level was drastically reduced and I started to feel like my old self, to my great relief. Sheli is so caring and knowledgeable that I would highly recommend her to anyone serious about improving their health in a way that is natural and drug-free.

"We have been all over the state and even the country to find solutions to my son's health problems over the last many years."

I cannot find enough words of gratitude to thank you for your help. We have been all over the state and even the country to find solutions to my son's health problems over the last many years. He has attempted many programs prior to seeing you. Your comprehensive scientific approach and your dedicated, sincere and caring approach are truly one-of-a kind. You combine the latest cutting edge knowledge with a unique blend of compassion, sensitivity, and knowledge of the human psyche. I have not seen work of this quality anywhere before. My son adheres to his program of diet, exercise, and supplements because he sees that it makes a huge impact on his quality of life. He finally has energy, is able to focus and functions as a productive young man his age. With sincerest appreciation,

"I am living a better life than I ever thought possible."

I cannot say enough good things about Sheli. She was able to pinpoint food intolerances that I never knew I had and address intestinal issues and nutrient deficiencies that were causing a lot of my health problems. Within days of starting my new diet and supplement program, I felt better than I have in the last 10 years! With my new health plan I have seen a vast improvement in my mental attitude. As a result, I am living a better life than I ever thought possible. I have so much more energy, am more mentally focused, and have significantly less pain. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

"For the first time in a very long time I have energy, am in control of my health and no longer have gastro issues."

Before consulting with Sheli, I suffered from Chronic Fatigue and gastro-distress. I was frustrated, tired, angry and simply felt like my health was out of control. Every doctor I went to did tests and said all my tests came out negative. There wasn't much they could do for me. Rest more and take medication to help with the gastro problems. Knowing all the side effects medication can cause, I was not happy. You did tests that I hadn't had done before and explained that I had a gluten intolerance. In a very methodical and knowledgeable way you showed me how to eat and what supplements I should be taking. For the first time in a very long time I have energy, am in control of my health and no longer have gastro issues. Thank goodness for my friend that recommended you. What a wonderful and very caring person you are.

"When she was done questioning and testing him she uncovered a few other ailments that she was able to alleviate."

My husband developed psoriasis as a teenager. He was always so embarrassed that he would keep his arms and legs covered at all times. In the summer when his friends would go swimming he always gave an excuse as to why he couldn't go to the pool. Since seeing Sheli, his psoriasis has greatly improved. Now when we are invited to someone's pool he is the first to say, great idea! Her patience, knowledge and guidance are wonderful. I didn't know that psoriasis could be related to diet. When she was done questioning and testing him she uncovered a few other ailments that she was able to alleviate. As we sit here and think about his results we can only say bless you.

"She not only recommended a proper diet and nutritional supplements but also explained it in a way I would understand."

For many years I suffered with acne. As a young adult it was always so embarrassing. I was tired of being on an oral antibiotic for my face. I wanted to start a natural treatment that would help get rid of my acne. Sheli did some testing and has helped me understand what created my problem. She not only recommended a proper diet and nutritional supplements but also explained it in a way I would understand. It is always nice to have someone take the time and have the patience to sit and explain all aspects of what caused my problem and how together we are going to correct it. She has the knowledge, understanding and education to help you get better. I would recommend her to whoever wants to get better in a more natural way.

"She gives people exactly what they need to help them get their life back."

My son was diagnosed with Lyme Disease several years ago. Despite being on multiple antibiotics for years, he was not fully recovered. He was suffering from fatigue, headaches, high cholesterol, and high sugar numbers. Sheli's testing uncovered food allergies and nutrient deficiencies that helped him to feel good again. She found what was wrong with his body and began working with a protocol to heal his body naturally. Her profound knowledge, wisdom and caring is what got us through a difficult time. All numbers are now in range, headaches are gone and he has more energy. I guess we can say he is back to his old self. She gives people exactly what they need to help them get their life back. Thank you!

"She really got to know me so she could personalize my plan instead of giving me generic advice."

I have been suffering from chronic pain for the last 11 years. My migraines have been so bad I have refused invitations to parties and many times miss my children's school events. My brother's wife had been to see Sheli about her scalp bumps and was so thrilled to be relieved from pain that she insisted I go to see Sheli. I had tried to deal with the pain by taking medication but it made me very tired and brought on a new onslaught of problems. I was also afraid I was beginning to become addicted to the drugs. Sheli helped me look at the way I eat in a new and inspiring way. She really got to know me so she could personalize my plan instead of giving me generic advice. I also had a few other issues that she was able to help me with. I was very pleased with her care and liked her impressive academic background and continued medical education. She's great!

"Sheli gave me the knowledge and tools I needed to regain control of my own health. She is a great resource to have in your life."

For years I have had high cholesterol and I noticed that my sugar numbers have been creeping up. My doctor wanted to put me on medication for cholesterol. I did some research and found that taking medication could increase your chance of getting diabetes. I know where that is headed since I have friends with diabetes. That scared me so I made the decision not to go on medication. Now what was I going to do with the cholesterol problem and sugar numbers? I tried doing nothing for a while and that didn't work. My wife insisted that I see Sheli because of my high cholesterol and being pre-diabetic. That was one of the best decisions I had made in a long time. No medication, cholesterol numbers and sugar numbers have gone down. I have more energy than I had in a long time. Sheli gave me the knowledge and tools I needed to regain control of my own health. She is a great resource to have in your life.

After reading Dr. Sherry Rogers books, working with Sheli was wonderful.

I can honestly say working with Sheli has been wonderful. I am a fan of Dr. Sherry Rogers and have read all her books and her Total Wellness Newsletter.  I was having a hard time putting it all together on my journey to achieving optimal health.  Sheli did just that, put it all together.  I appreciated Sheli's wealth of knowledge, flexibility, and warmth.  I haven't felt this great in years.
