“I contacted Hollis when I realized that I had to make some major life changes around my way of eating and approach to eating. I had struggled for some time with Meniere’s Disease complicated by Vestibular Migraines. I had been working with various doctors but had continued to decline reaching a point where I was not making it thru most days without a major episode and I had gone totally deaf in my right ear. I had read that making some major eating changes could make a difference with some “mystery” diseases, I felt committed to it, but knew I would need help both with understanding the nutritional elements to make it successful and with the emotional elements that I would need to understand to make the kind of change I needed to make. Hollis agreed to help me.
On February 5th, I began this journey with a major detox of raw fresh fruit and vegetables only for 3 weeks. From there I went to a total vegan eating regime with no dairy, gluten, processed sugar and extremely limited salt. This was a MAJOR change in eating for me. Hollis was with me from day one thru the emotional issues one faces when making these kinds of changes in their lifestyle, helping me deal with daily issues such as how does one eat out, and of course teaching me the nutritional balance and giving me new ideas on preparing food.
It is 6 months later, I am still eating vegan with no dairy, gluten and limited salt. I have not had an episode for over 4 months and I have gained back limited hearing in my right ear. My neurologist says he cannot believe it and he does not think he needs to ever see me again. I can truly say that Hollis’ coaching, encouragement, education, and patience in working with me gave me the confidence and continued motivation to continue on in some difficult moments. I really appreciate her time and energy. I would recommend her to anyone wishing to make positive healthy changes to their lives.”
