To paint a picture, I was unable to eat at all without pain. My diet was just mashed potatoes and chocolate milkshakes. I was probably the sickest I’ve been since my diagnosis, maybe even worse. I was dizzy, could not function, and felt hopeless.
Since working with Danielle, I rarely experience the midday crashes that used to wipe out hours of my day. I feel I’m eating in a more healthful way. I mean, it’s just like night to day because it was really dark and really hard and now it’s really bright and there are lots of possibilities.”
Before starting with Danielle, I would have some flares with my ulcerative colitis. I was stuck because no one had information on this. I felt helpless and fearful about going out.
Now I’m feeling better. I’m leaving the house more and am feeling confident about being away from the bathrooms. And I like most of the food changes that were made."
I had been flaring due to my Ulcerative Colitis (UC) for almost 2 years and had recently been diagnosed with a C. Diff. infection, to make matters worse. I couldn’t get the diarrhea to stop and felt stuck in having to limit my diet because it seemed that nothing was working and I had constant bloating. I started to feel hopeless as time went by.
I felt like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders when the diarrhea reduced and even came to a stop. After making changes to my diet and adding variety, my energy and outlook improved. The meal interventions allowed me to gain control over my health, improving sleep and exercise.
Eating right reduced my UC symptoms, helped me lose 15 lbs, gain muscle, have less stress, sleep better, more mental sharpness, and feel fantastic overall."
I didn't feel good because my output from my ostomy was very fluid and it was over consuming my life. I knew [my issues] had to do with food but didn't know what good nutrition was for a person with an ostomy. Since working with Danielle, my health has much improved. I'm back to almost all my normal activities and I feel confident."
After my second surgery I couldn’t eat much of anything. I needed help right away, as each day that passed I was becoming more discouraged and upset. I felt powerless and depressed about this situation and was worried about being able to take care of myself, my dogs and being able to function normal at work.
My experience with Danielle was awesome! I feel more confident about my food choices and I’m pleased to have dropped weight. Danielle is kind and compassionate and understands what goes on with diseases of the colon and is “in the trenches” with these issues. Without a doubt I would recommend Danielle to others.”
