What Satisfied Clients Have Said

 

"I suffered from arthritis and allergies.  I feel better than I have in years after meeting with Mitra and following her recommendations.  Her advice on nutrition and supplements is clear, easy to follow and definitely works!  Symptoms of allergy and arthritis were virtually non-existent after only several months, and a special bonus is more energy"

    --- Linda I., 55-year old suffering from arthritis


"With Mitra’s help, I became much more disciplined with meal planning, exercise, eating smart and developing healthy habits.  I was excited to see immediate results after numerous failed attempts on my own.  Her guidance is invaluable"

    --- Ann R., dealing weight management and arthritis

"I felt Mitra Rash was an excellent nutritionist educated in whole foods and their effect on health.  She was very patient with my teenage daughter who was quiet upset about the changes she needs to make.  It has been helpful to have these sessions." 

    --- Mary D. mother of adolescent diabetic


“I was diagnosed with a virulent strain of the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and was quite distressed to find out there was no cure.  My doctor said, “It’s up to your own immune system to fight it off.”  I knew then that strengthening my immune system was my only chance.  I made some changes on my own and, after one year, test results still showed the presence of the virus.  I knew I had to take more drastic steps so I met with Mitra Rash.  After a thorough and sensitive meeting, she prescribed a plan of diet and lifestyle changes to help.  I learned a lot during out meeting and made most of the changes she recommended.  After a period of three months, I visited my doctor again for a follow-up test.  It showed a decrease in the virus!  And three months after that, the test was normal; no signs of the virus remained.  I am ecstatic and very grateful to Ms. Rash.  Her advice worked quickly and I feel great!”

"My family and I travel to the United States to receive help for my son who has autism.  When we met with Ms. Mitra Rash she explained to us the relationship between nutrition and how autism is affected by eating the wrong type of food.  I did not know that what my son was eating had anything to do with his autistic condition.  She put him on a wheat-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free diet, made a lot of alternative suggestions that would meet our cultural meals, drew up extensive meal plans for us and took me grocery shopping to show me which food I should and should not buy for him.  Even though I know we have to pursue lot of venues to help our son, I have learned that nutrition is one of the biggest steps to take.  I am grateful that I met with Mitra and now I know what to feed my child."

    --- Madawy N. mother of 4 year- old child diagnosed with autism


     "I want to thank you for your help when I had strep throat last fall. The acidophilus did the trick and I made a good recovery. But the best thing to come out of that illness was that it gave us the opportunity to talk and look closely at some other health issues I have been dealing with. At my age (62 years) some things are beginning to become more prominent…joint problems, back aches, energy drain, difficulty sleeping. All normal middle age conditions that I had resigned myself to living with. As a result of our discussions, you recommended Metagenics vitamins. I have been taking Wellness Essentials multivitamins for women and the series for “Joint Focus” for about three months now and have begun to see some significant changes in my well-being.

     I had chronic lower back pain and within a few weeks of taking the vitamins that had decreased significantly. There was really nothing else I did that would have accounted for the change. In addition, after three months, I noticed that a chronic condition in my thumb which is very stiff and painful has begun to loosen up and I no longer have the sharp pain which occurred periodically. My hands are more flexible and I do not have the morning pain I was experiencing. This is a tremendous relief! I find that I am sleeping more soundly and getting up less frequently during the night. My digestion and elimination have really improved. It seems as though my body is just cleaning out more efficiently. I think the best thing is more subtle - in general, I feel stronger and healthier internally.

     Thanks again for your help. I’ll continue to take the vitamins and will let you know how things progress.  All the best."

    --- Judith  L., joint pain, gastrointestinal discomfort


"My husband and I decided to seek a nutritionist and find out how to eat better to improve out health.  My husband has diabetes and honestly, he hasn’t been very careful with his food selection.  I have high cholesterol and high blood pressure and both of us would like to lose some weight.  Our overall impression form our counseling sessions with Mitra is that everything was EXCELLENT!  Mitra made us aware of the impact of what we eat on the cellular level and how we must be aware/ conscious of our food choices.  The sessions responded to our needs, clarified our questions and we would be more than happy to recommend her sessions to our friends.  My husband is more conscientious about his food intake and he has dropped some weight. My triglycerides, LDL, and overall cholesterol have dropped more than 50 POINTS EACH.  Both the cardiologist and internist were very pleased"

    --- Pat and Steve C. suffering from diabetes, elevated cholesterol, and arthritis

"After a major change in lifestyle, I started meeting with Mitra in order to make sure I was eating a balanced and nutritious diet. I soon became focused on organic food options and healthier choices for my meals. The changes I made over the next few months resulting in feeling more energetic and weight loss. The organic foods have a much fuller taste and I'm happy that I'm not putting preservatives and hormones into my system. Thank you so much for showing me the way to a healthier life with food choices that I really enjoy and are so much better for me."

“When I worked with Healthy Living With Whole Foods, their approach to nutrition was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. The most important difference about working with this professional Nutrition Coach, is that they don’t believe in rigid and unrealistic diet plans. Instead, they took the time to carefully evaluate me and asked all the right questions in order to come up with a long-term plan that was specifically tailored to my needs. Not only did I lose weight in a healthy way, but I learned great tricks and habits to keep me on track for the rest of my life. Thank you, Healthy Living With Whole Foods!”
