"I am so grateful for Dana, and lucky to say I have known her for years. She is living proof of the power of mind and spirit to overcome the worst obstacles life has to offer. She’s not just a survivor, but a thriver. She is a healer. Intermittently, I find myself touching base, or reaching out about a complex auto-immune patient, hormone testing, or nutrition recommendations. I never thought I would be a client.
I found myself after a very intense year of caring for others, then the trauma of loss, needing to find agency in my life. After relying on friends, I sought professional help. However neither my primary provider, nor therapist could help me. Some how, Dana came to mind, I called her up and low-and-behold she was back to health coaching. It was kismet.
As a doctor, I know all the right things to do – avoid inflammatory foods, decrease alcohol intake, exercise regularly, etc. I was ready to cut back on the drinking, yet I still didn’t have it in me for routine exercise. I decided that the only thing I could find a semblance of control over is what food I put into my face. Yet, getting started on a new journey seemed daunting. We are our own best advocate, yet don’t let anyone tell you otherwise, It is impossible to pathologize the self.
I have high expectations of myself and I wanted to truly detox, she supported that and supported that I am human – it’s OK to eat some soy lecithin, or an extra serving of fruit – it must be sustainable! I never got bored, or “hangry,” mostly because of the creative, simple solutions offered. I actually got interested in creating new recipes, sharing new insights with her. She offers modifications which are easy enough to adapt to every day. Breakfast is always the hardest meal for me, and there are only so many days in a week I can do a smoothie, her breakfast cereal recipe saved my day!
I refer patients to Dana regularly, referring to her as “guru Dana.” I feel well guided by a very intuitive, knowledgeable person. There is so much healing necessary in the human form that simply cannot be treated by allopathic medicine. She is an ever-abundant resource for me, it is hard to believe that she is primarily self-taught."
"We started coaching on 12/7/2016. The first session was a minty day goal setting. At this time, my iron level was very low. So, that was my first Goal. Second goal was we worked on breathing exercises to open lungs. Dana got to work right away, sent me foods that would help build my iron, as well as, great menus for tasty food, what to drink to help my fluid intake became a daily must. We then started on my COPD. She helped me with food that would help my breathing. She explained that my chewing was so important for the breathing. She then worked with exercise that I could do to increase my lungs. Next she worked on my relaxing while eating. Then did a wonderful relaxing exercise. Her voice just made the stress melt away. I feel so blessed to have Dana help me to reach a better way of life. I have seen much progress. I would highly recommend her to any person who wants to feel the way they can."
"I was referred to Dana on Instagram by a friend who I'd been working with to improve my health and well-being. I decided that consulting a professional would be a great move and it would push me to commit to the changes that were needed. We had a great initial consult and I was looking forward to working with her. My objectives were broader than just diet and physical health. Over the 12 week program, we covered food, diet, exercise, water intake, digestive issues, work habits and harmony, relationship habits and harmony and much much more.
At the end of our 12 weeks, I will attempt to stay the course on my own and follow all of the nurturing accountability and advice. I may come back for a pep talk periodically. It has been a wonderful and unexpected journey with Dana and her extensive knowledge and intuition."
"Dana is professional and passionate about her coaching career. She is extremely knowledgeable about health and food choices. Her caring approach to coaching and dedication to helping clients achieve their goals to understanding health and the choices we make is invaluable to anyone who she works with. The work we did together was thought provoking, belief shifting and helped with habit change. Our relationship is still ongoing."
Before I started with Dana, I was feeling ill, run down and tired. I was having trouble making it through my work day, getting up in the morning and going to work. I went to the doctor and found my blood pressure was high, I was on the verge of diabetes.
I reached out to Dana, I was trying to not have to take prescription drugs for the rest of my life. Dana worked with me to make meal plans, good foods to eat for my particular issues. She kept up with me to make sure I was doing ok. I’m sure she talked to me longer than she had to. I started feeling better, my doctor checked my blood and I was doing better. 2 months in and my doctor was impressed with my results. I had more energy, felt better, and found myself even happier. Dana has done me a great service. More than just getting my stats back inline so, I am not taking medications to get through my day. I didn’t realize that I was so down. All of that is in my past and I couldn’t be more grateful.
