Welcome to my website
Did you know that one in seven adults suffers from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)? Lower abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, altered bowel movement, and gastrointestinal upset sometimes characterize this condition.
Research conducted at Monash University suggests that the best way to alleviate the symptoms associated with IBS may be to limit a group of small chain carbohydrates (such as sugars and fibers) that may be poorly digested.
This group of carbohydrates, known as FODMAPs, is well tolerated by most, and, in fact, FODMAPs feed healthy gut bacteria. But for those individuals who do not fully digest these molecules, they enter the large intestine where fermentation causes undesirable symptoms.
This guide will help you improve your digestion by building your foundations, and educating you on the causes so that you can go into the world feeling confident about taking care of your body.
In this guide, you will learn:

Going into this, I wasn't sure what to expect because I have tried to follow other nutritional programs and did not seem to get much out of them to benefit. Renata took me one on one and spent a tremendous amount of time getting to know me "exactly" and what would really work for me by developing a plan that I could actually follow, one that implemented things that were available to me, and I would not get discouraged trying to keep on track. She kept in constant contact and made sure that I was doing everything right. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about starting to change their habits for a healthy diet and lifestyle.

I have Hypermobility-type Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, lost my appendix at age 4/5, and was raised on a steady diet of antibiotics for recurring sinus infections. My celiac gene was activated in my twenties by another bad reaction to an antibiotic. All of this means that by my early 40's, I am a celiac with no built-in healthy gut-bacteria incubator (appendix), and have suffered for years from obesity that nothing seems to impact, IBS and daily digestive issues, breakouts, lethargy, intense brain fog, and more. Before meeting with Renata I was consuming a gluten-free, mostly whole-foods diet and an expensive pro/pre-biotic formula that was offering some help, but I was still experiencing daily problems with my health that were negatively impacting my quality of life.
Renata recommended the Auto-immune protocol diet with several modifications. I was on it strictly for several months. In that time my daily aches and pains decreased, my IBS slowed, my skin cleared up, my tinnitus reduced, etc. It really brought home for me how many food intolerances I have, and how little my system can handle. I will likely have to maintain a version of the AIP for the rest of my life. I have also been using a daily probiotic recommended by Renata that contains no ingredients that might cause a histamine reaction, to replace my prior probiotic, which contained a prebiotic mix including things like black pepper that may be inflammatory to my system. I would never have thought my probiotic itself could be causing me distress without Renata's guidance!
While the nature of my diagnoses is such that I will remain chronically ill, I will suffer less as long as I keep to the protocol. And that's a win for me!

Hi, my name is Nadia and I had Bariatric surgery a few months ago. I have been working with Renate concerning healthy nutrition, my healthy eating habits ,ways to maintain the weight I lost with having more knowledge about foods,how they can improve my over all health, stamina and happiness. Renate has helped me so much by helping me understand more about a wide variety of foods and benefits to the body. She’s helped me substitute my cravings for unhealthy foods with more healthier versions but still enjoy a good treat once in a while . After seeing Renate and changing my ways,my labs are perfect,I feel stronger,have more energy,sleep better and I’m intuned with my body and mind finally. Some suggestions are mediation which has helped me calm my mind and body . I never thought it was possible to have a good nights rest, and wake up feeling super energized ! I’m so grateful to work with such an amazing nutritionist . We have more work to do but I feel I’m almost there ! I’ve gone off processed and junk foods & that is such a huge accomplishment for me because I didn’t have the tools and knowledge to do so, now I do:-) I feel a huge difference in my over all health. She is such a motivational force in my life and I highly recommend her services .
Renata has helped me so much. When I started my health journey I did not know anything about what eating healthy looked like or what foods were good for me, she has taught me so much about what different foods can do for me. I have always had gut problems but I didn’t know they were gut problems until I started meeting with Renata and she explained to me what food sensitivity is and helped me figure out what foods my body is sensitive to. She explains everything so well and does such a great job teaching what she knows, she is passionate about her job. I would 100% recommend her if you are looking for a nutritionist and or are wanting to learn more about your body and what each food does for your body specifically .
