"A life changing, soul awakening, years-of-therapy-in-months journey that has forever altered how I think about food...and how I think about myself"
When I first learned about Amy from a friend, I thought she would be teaching me how to prepare quinoa properly and finally figure out what the heck things like spelt, bulgur and buckwheat were.
Instead, I embarked on a journey into long-ago developed eating patterns and habits. With her help, I uncovered layer upon layer of false beliefs I'd developed about who I was and discovered who I really am. I entered into scary spaces, only to discover a clarity that has been inexplicably freeing. A life changing, soul awakening, years-of-therapy-in-months journey that has forever altered how I think about food...and how I think about myself.
Amy isn't just an expert about all things food -- she is one of the most compassionate, spiritual, extraordinary women I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. Her toolbox overflows with wisdom and grace. It was the gentlest, but most powerful kick-in-the butt I needed.
Amy's soul is bright and alive! It's impossible not to want to heal, repair and come alive with the same energy, vitality and strength. To work with this woman is a gift. Thank you, Amy Marzluff! Thank you!
-R.G. Evans Columbus Ohio
"Ultimately I ended up losing some weight (about 7 lbs.) ran a successful ½ marathon and am sleeping much better at night. I specifically am much more alert at work and because of that, more effective and productive."
Working with Amy Marzluff was very effective for me. We engaged Amy after seeing her brochure and spending an hour with her on the phone. Over the next six weeks or so I can say my life changed quite a bit, all for the better.
For me, I didn’t have a weight problem but I struggled with energy and alertness at work and realized my habits were the source of these issues. In addition, I struggled with sleeping well at night often waking up with night sweats.
Amy pointed out some tricks that made it easy for me to change my habits that then changed my day to day experience of life. Over time I reduced the amount of coffee I was drinking just by drinking a lot more water and slowly removed caffeine from my diet. I did the same with sugar and dairy (I have small amounts now) but with Amy’s assistance and recipes I really didn’t miss these things and still don’t.
Ultimately I ended up losing some weight (about 7 lbs.) ran a successful ½ marathon and am sleeping much better at night. I specifically am much more alert at work and because of that, more effective and productive.
I think that is the thing that makes working with Amy so effective. It isn’t about the weight loss or running. It is more about if you had these things (good health, great energy, etc) what would you be able to do or provide in the world that you don’t now. For me it was getting clear how this would improve my leadership skills -- something that I am passionate about.
I can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed working with Amy and what a difference she made for me in a relatively short period of time

"Knowledge is Power! My happiness, energy, knowledge, and peacefulness doubled in one year!"
During my sessions I began to feel Amy's caring and compassionate, nonjudgmental ways and came to love to listen to her unending knowledge of food and overall health issues.
I couldn't wait for my next appointment to get my fix of the "Amy magic."
Amy's magic gave me a feeling of power. She armed me with the knowledge which gave me the strength to keep moving forward in a more positive lifestyle. She guided me to look into myself to see what I wanted and where I wanted to go. Then she would help me create a roadmap to reach my goals.
Amy is one of those persons who touches your life and your life is enhanced fourfold.
Amy taught me how to prepare and cook healthy food. She even went the extra mile to create creative fun food choices for my seven-year-old and husband.
Before I started working with Amy I thought why should I spend my money on someone who will tell me what I already know: "eat healthy and exercise." But I was in a real low point in my life. I'd come to the realization I was making my daughter fat. I was already feeling down about myself and what I had done to my body but to see my miracle baby now seven years old looking fat like me made me reach out for help.
After four visits I began to lose weight and have more energy. I was able to accomplish more work in one day that would've taken me a week to do. I began to feel happier and less stressed out. My husband help me stick to the plan because he loves seeing my joy come back.
I was diagnosed at the age of 36 to be in a menopausal state and had been until I began my work with Amy at 43 years old. Midway through my journey I learned from my medical doctor that my POF (premature ovarian failure) diagnosis was reversed and my ovaries are healthy and working.
Today my daughter husband and I are all physically stronger than we have ever been. I feel powerful because I know I can walk into a grocery store without a list, know what to buy, bring it home, cook it, and have my family enjoy their dinner.
Best of all I am happy and I have an overall peacefulness that has helped me to lose the fat and gain muscle.
I cannot Thank-you Amy enough.
~ Kimberly Lordo, Columbus, Ohio
"Wow, what can I say… Amy is amazing! Such a lovely, smart, honest, caring and beautiful person who respects and honors each and every client, no matter their starting point on the journey to better health & wellness."
Before working with Amy, I was struggling with some recent weight gain and felt that I could use a good, nutritional coach to help jump start some better eating and exercise habits. After just 4 sessions, I have lost weight, have more energy, know how much WATER and GREENS can improve wellbeing, have a plan for fitness to be part of my regular routine again and lots of tasty recipes to keep on track, to boot!
I had a lot of things going on in my life while working with Amy that were out of my control, and this gave me just the right thing to focus on that was in my control: me. Taking care and giving ourselves permission to be better sometimes gets lost in our day to day existence, so I am thrilled I did it and highly recommend working with Amy to anyone wanting to feel healthier and stronger (who doesn’t?!). You’ll get the benefits of that and so much more!
~ Jennifer Peterson, Columbus, OH
"Amy was able to see the conflict in me and helped to inspire and ignite a new-found freedom"
Before working with Amy I struggled with making healthy food choices. After 6 sessions, I stopped binging and removed processed food from my diet. The best part of the sessions were the coaching, the actual cooking instructions and the recipes.
When I look back at the moment I made the decision to do this for myself, I feel satisfied that I invested the time and money to work with Amy. I highly recommend working with Amy if you've struggled with making healthy choices.
Amy was able to see the conflict in me and helped to inspire and ignite a new-found freedom!
~ Cathy Gongwer - Columbus, Ohio
"The 'stuck' feeling has been shattered and I'm picking through the rubble and throwing away every last bit."
~ Lora, Marion, Ohio
"Amy was able to see the conflict in me and help inspire and ignite a freedom I absolutely love!"
Before working with Amy I had a lot of conflict and guilt about the balance between healthy eating and joyful living. It was a struggle to stay in control of my cravings, despite everything I know about being healthy…I was missing the feeling of freedom I truly desired.
After 4 sessions, I started feeling the conflict inside melt away. I began making decisions about my thoughts and actions with a freedom that feels authentic and energizing. Amy helped me recognize the positive intentions behind my thoughts and behaviors, which calmed the chaos and guilt that would build up. She gave me new ideas on how to celebrate the good in life, while still maintaining the progress I’ve made along the way and staying in control of my cravings. Amy was able to see the conflict in me and help inspire and ignite a freedom I absolutely love! Her recipes are awesome too!!
When I look back at the moment I made the decision to do this for myself, I feel empowered, alive, and extremely grateful that I took this step forward in my journey!
~ Melissa O, Johnstown, Ohio
"I highly recommend this cleanse if you've struggled with your weight, your self-esteem, health issues, sleepless nights & a belief that losing weight can’t happen for you."
Before working with Amy I started to believe weight loss was impossible for me.
After 21 days (on a cleanse), I feel like I’m in my 20s! I lost more than 10 pounds and all my clothes (if they’re not baggy!) easily zip and button and I feel fabulous. I have tons of energy and since starting the cleanse I’ve slept through the nights like a baby.
On top of it all, I learned from Amy many quick tips and ideas for going out to for meals and to easily prepare delicious, nutritious food at home. They are habits that now will be life-long!
When I look back at the moment I made the decision to do this for myself, I feel so proud. I was inspired by others who had worked with Amy and had terrific success achieving their goals and that motivated me to try. So thrilled I did!
Amy’s enthusiasm, knowledge and support was the key to making the 21-day cleanse so successful and such a breeze!
I highly recommend this cleanse if you've struggled with your weight, your self-esteem, health issues, sleepless nights and a belief that losing weight can’t happen for you. You are going to be so surprised!
~ Debbie Phillips, Founder, Women on Fire, Martha’s Vineyard, MA
"Before working with Amy I was in a constant struggle with my body, which resulted from over-exercising, binge eating and depriving myself."
After 6 sessions, I embarked on a 40-day whole food cleanse and lost weight that my body was holding onto, developed a healthier relationship with food and exercise, discovered what foods work for my body, grew spiritually, and have a new found peace!
When I look back at the moment I made the decision to do this for myself, I feel it was life-changing, and that Amy was put in my life at that exact moment for a reason -- so I could stop living in a constant state of stress and self-hatred.
I highly recommend this cleanse, and exploring all that Amy has to offer, if you've ever struggled with finding the balance that your body desires.
~ Simi Botic, Attorney, Health Coach, & Blogger, The Micro Harvest
"I have a new love for myself"
“By the end of the program, I had taken steps to make a career change, I have a new love for myself, and as my brother put it "Sarah, I think you are the happiest we have ever seen you."
Before working with Amy I had suffered from endless extreme dieting and an obsession with food that hindered my ability to enjoy life. I always thought to myself, once I get to a certain weight/size, I'll be happy. I had also recently been through a terrible and unexpected break-up which had turned my world up-side down and brought an overflow of negative thoughts and a lack of self-love into my life.
After 6 sessions, I saw a new radiation of beauty and confidence in my body. A lady at the airport told me how shiny my hair looked. Others told me that I was glowing. In general I received lots of feedback that I looked healthy and sounded very happy. By session 10, I realized that it's OK to have a balance between maintaining a strict diet, but still enjoying myself when the moments came up. My pendulum, as we called it, became less broad, allowing me to feel less deprived but also OK with the choices I make. By the end of the program, I had taken steps to make a career change, I have a new love for myself, and as my brother put it "Sarah, I think you are the happiest we have ever seen you".
When I look back at the moment I made the decision to work with Amy, I feel very proud of myself that I put my ego aside and asked for help. Furthermore, I feel that I have broken the chains of many years of restricting and binging and learned how to love myself just the way I am. Although this program did not end in weight loss for me, I realized that losing weight does not equal happiness. That there are SO many other aspects of life that can fill these voids, and the shape, weight, and size you are have nothing to do with it.
I highly recommend working with Amy if you're ready to stop constantly worrying about what and when to eat, and are ready to start living and enjoying your life! And finally, if a loved one (or even yourself) has caused you to question your worth and future, Amy will help you to re-discover how valuable and unique you are and ultimately teach you how to discover the best version of you!

"Energy to Run a Half Marathon"
Shortly before working with Amy I learned that I had to adapt to a gluten-free lifestyle. Being the educated and independent person that I am, I was quick to do my own research and secretly scoff suggestions that I should work with a health coach. I'll admit it, I was highly skeptical of "coaches." I like to think of myself as someone who has her stuff together . . . or at least can research and plan how to get her stuff together! Oh, how I had it all wrong.
Amy brought easy, healthy habits into my life at a time when I needed them most. She educated me as to why my body has certain cravings and how to give it what it needs . . . in a healthy form. She helped me identify additional foods/ingredients that my body was sensitive to, and she helped give my body the energy it needed to train for my first half-marathon (and I am NOT - or WAS NOT - a runner before this year). She was an invaluable research resource and a personal champion wrapped up in one. Yes, I have a much different view on coaching now.
~ Nikki Hudson, Columbus, Ohio
“Goodbye, aches. Hello, energy!”
Before working with Amy I felt puffy all over, tired AND my elbows ached! After about seven weeks of following Amy’s advice, I felt energized and healthier, I slept much better, I weighed a few pounds less, and my elbows didn't ache as much.
I highly recommend working with Amy if you've struggled with disciplined eating. She's great at tailoring a plan for you, and it doesn't have to be some crazy deprivation thing.
~ Kelly Mooney, CEO, Resource Interactive, www.Resource.com
“Happy to be gluten free”
Before working with Amy, I was struggling with Celiac and adapting to my new gluten-free life. After two months, I learned how to care for myself and enjoy gluten free cooking. Cutting out gluten cleared up my headaches and stomachaches, stopped my hair from falling out, gave my skin more color and got rid of some unexplained anxiety.
I highly recommend working with Amy if you're suffering from gluten intolerance or Celiac and are looking to realize the benefits of removing gluten from your diet.
~ Simi Botic, Attorney, Blogger and Health Coach
“Amy introduced me to so many ways to live a more vibrant gluten-free life!”
I was already following a gluten free diet when I began working with Amy, but she introduced me to so many ways to live a more vibrant GF life! My favorite new habit: Take out the blender and make smoothies each morning for breakfast instead of bagels, breads, cereals and pancakes.
~ Ruth Milligan, ar.tic.u.la.tion inc. , Public Speaking, Presentation and Storytelling, Training and Coaching, www.articulationinc.com
"I loved working with Amy and would recommend her highly to anyone looking to find ways to balance their lives through nutrition."
A few years later, even without gluten in my diet, I began to feel lethargic and just dreary overall. I began working with Amy after my father had great success with her. I started by going through a Standard Process cleanse with her and continuing to talk with her regularly about which aspects of the cleanse may or may not be good for me to maintain in the long run. Amy helped me identify how all foods, not just gluten, were contributing to how I felt physically and mentally. I loved working with Amy and would recommend her highly to anyone looking to find ways to balance their lives through nutrition.
~ Elle Celeste, Law student at The Ohio State University
"Almost as soon as I started to make some specific changes, the scale started to move, my focus and energy were enhanced, and the persistent gas and bloating subsided."
Amy helped me zero in on both the primary and secondary food issues that were at the root of my digestive issues and inability to lose weight. Almost as soon as I started to make some specific changes, the scale started to move, my focus and energy were enhanced, and the persistent gas and bloating subsided. After just seven weeks, I have lost 6 pounds, and trimmed 2.5 inches from my waist and hips! I’m sleeping better and am so much more aware of and responsive to the messages my body is giving me.
Contacting Amy is one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long time regarding my health. If you struggle with those nagging extra pounds that won’t go away, or aren’t sure where to even begin to improve your health and vitality, I highly recommend working with Amy!
~ Alice Chapman, Public Health Veterinarian and future Health Coach, Beavercreek, OH
"Finally on the right track for life!"
Before working with Amy I was always confused about what to eat in order to be at my peak health and feel my best. But within 4 weeks of meeting with Amy, I learned pivotal information that was tailored to suit my body.
As a result, I gained more energy, remained motivated enough to not return to my old eating habits and most importantly, found a new appreciation for my body. I’m no longer searching the Internet for a "fad" diet or quick fix. My skin is glowing and I have an abundant amount of energy.
I highly recommend working with Amy if you are struggling with what to eat and are committed to being at your best! Amy deeply coaches her clients with expertise, love and passion. She will provide you with information, motivation and tools necessary to be the best that you can be. The results are life altering.
~ Justine Spinosi, Manager, Riverside, Methodist Hospital, Columbus, OH
"I've gone from a size 12 to a size 4! I don't think I've ever been a size 4!
"Before working with Amy, I felt lethargic and overweight. I often had headaches and belly aches. Three years ago, my husband, John, and I made a commitment to avoid processed and artificial foods, but I knew that I needed more help to improve my health. Enter Amy! Her guidance and insight have been invaluable.
Amy's vitality and positive energy made me feel like I could achieve my goals. After 6 months of following Amy's advice, I feel incredible: my health has improved, I have more energy, my skin is clear, my hair is shiny, and I've lost almost 30 lbs! John has also adopted the positive di*et changes and he feels healthier, has increased energy and has lost 25 lbs!
I am so happy that I took the first step towards better health by calling Amy. I highly recommend this program if you want to feel healthier, have more energy, and lose weight. Amy sets you up for success by giving you the tools you need for life long health and vitality."
~ Rachel (and John) Albert, Electrical Engineer and Mother of Triplets
Heather Lost Over 100 Pounds!
"I've been getting a lot of compliments lately on how I look, and I think it's because I've finally returned to my pre-pregnancy shape and size. While I avoid conversations about weight and food, because of the insanity it creates for me, I have become a moving target. What's your secret?, everyone wants to know. My one word answer: Amy.
I turned to Amy for help when I was ready to give just a bit of energy to looking towards losing weight and getting stronger. For the record I gained over one hundred pounds with my triplets (triplet recommendation is about 80 lbs). And my body was torn and twisted. When people ask what I did to lose weight, I'm at a loss for words because it feels like I did nothing. My phone sessions with Amy were helpful and easy to integrate into my daily reality. So easy that it kind of feels like I didn't do anything at all."
~ Heather Altman, Rabbi, Spiritual Director, Registered Yoga Instructor, mother of 4-including triplet toddlers
"Adding Amy to our corporate-centric programming highlighted how blended work and home life has become and provided ways to ensure people are happy, healthy and successful on all fronts."
The Center for Operational Excellence at Fisher College of Business at Ohio State hosts numerous business-oriented member programs throughout the year. However after seeing Amy speak at a campus event I thought her message would resonate with our membership. Typically COE programming focuses on professional development – business skills, managing the workplace etc. Amy’s discussion passionately illustrated how one’s health and well being can dramatically – and positively – impact all facets of one’s personal and professional life. Amy’s enthusiasm and informal approach provided an ease of understanding on popular health information that many think they know – but don’t really comprehend. Program evaluations revealed that attendees left with tools and techniques to better handle life’s stressors at home and work. Adding Amy to our corporate-centric programming highlighted how blended work and home life has become and provided ways to ensure people are happy, healthy and successful on all fronts.

"I was so happy to lose several pounds over the course of my sessions..."
Before working with Amy I felt stuck, repeating the same cycles in an attempt to lose weight and feel healthier. I was frustrated because I didn’t know what I could do to change (I didn’t know what I didn’t know).
After just a few months, I have changed my approach to food and now think about it as what’s going to nourish my body rather than what I think I “feel like eating”. I was so happy to lose several pounds over the course of my sessions and I know that by continuing to eat healthier I will continue to gradually drop weight until I reach my goal. Amy also provided guidance and tips that have helped me put some structure around and increase time spent in my weekly exercise routine. I know that I now have the tools I need to be healthier all-around. And this has all seemed surprisingly easy, in large part due to Amy’s guidance and encouragement.
When I look back at the moment I made the decision to do this for myself, I feel like I was definitely supposed to meet Amy. I have learned so much and it was so helpful having someone working with me and my specific preferences and challenges.
I highly recommend this program if you've struggled with counting calories (or points) and just feel like you need that kick-start or gentle nudge to work toward a healthier lifestyle.
~ Janis Jett, Manager, IT Business Analytics at NetJets
"I absolutely love Amy and the way she presents the information!"
I want to thank you for the 4-part Nutrition Series Workshop. I learned so much from this workshop, including numerous ideas that I can actually incorporate at home and my daily diet. I absolutely love Amy and the way she presents the information! She’s very easy to understand and she provided us with loads of great information. It was wonderful to be able to sample the recipes that Amy shared before going out and buying all the ingredients. She was also helpful in sharing which markets had the best prices on the items we were discussing, which is much appreciated.
It was very generous of OPERS to offer this informative workshop to all of us, so I just wanted you to know how beneficial it truly was and greatly appreciated.
~ Jenni, Employee at OPERS
"I took part in Amy's Women’s Clean Eating and Wellness Coaching Group last year, along side my mother, and was amazed! Every month, I could not wait to go. No matter how exhausted I was at the end of my day, I knew I would feel better if I just went to the Group. It changed so many aspects of my life in a positive way:
I learned about foods I had often seen, knew were good for me, but had no clue how to prepare them or work them into my family's food routine. I became more aware of how the foods I was eating made me feel. I learned to avoid foods that made me feel bloated or tired or even more hungry. I learned to be conscious of what I was putting in my mouth and why. No more mindless munching! It had been adding up over the years and thinking, “But I eat healthy?” I don't eat sweets, I'm a vegetarian, but still don't slim down or even worse, gain weight. Amy made me recognize my triggers for overeating.
The food Amy brought into my life was amazing. Her recipes reinvigorated my passion for cooking and sharing with my family and friends this new “clean” food. You pay now for clean healthy food so you don't pay later with your medical bills, hospital stays and endless medications for high blood pressure, diabetes, and chronic infections.
The biggest surprise for me was the group itself. Getting to know these amazing women, who led such diverse lives, each of whom was struggling to find time and a path to wellness. What I learned was that the mind was as critical to this process as what I was putting in my mouth. They way I was felling, burdened and tired, changed after each session. With the help of Amy and the group, I was able to give myself permission to let go of things from my past that prevented me from moving forward. It was as much therapy as food. It fed my soul. I felt comfortable to share my feelings and in turn, learned a great deal about myself. I was sad to have the program end. If you can't tell, I think Amy and her program are wonderful, life changing and I highly recommend them both.”
~ Amy Stevens, Mother & Interior Decorator
“Until I invested in myself and realized I was worth it, I wasn’t going to make the changes I needed to!”
“Before working with Amy I struggled with night time bingeing. After 4 sessions, I stopped beating myself up at night and gave myself permission to have a "treat" if I wanted it - and I stopped the "full blown binge"... going cupboard to cupboard.
I was even able to lose those last stubborn pounds I put on during the winter!
When I look back, at the moment I made the decision to do this for myself, I feel It was the BEST decision and money I have spent on myself! I also realize now that until I invested in myself and realized I was worth it, I wasn't going to make the changes I needed to!
I highly recommend this program if you've struggled with staying on track to a healthier lifestyle, meal planning for your family, and need someone who really "gets it" and understands your day-to-day struggles and time straits! In a nutshell Amy is AMAZING!!!!”
~ Tracey Vlahos, Marketing Director & Certified Holistic Health Coach
“I gained an immense appreciation for how to shop, cook and eat more holistically!”
"Before working with Amy I wasn't aware of how little I knew about truly eating healthy. I gained an immense appreciation for how to shop, cook and eat more holistically. As a result, I was able to balance out my energy levels, slowly reduce some weight (even though that was not an initial goal for me), and be prepared for an unexpected turn in my wellness. A month after Amy's program ended I got some parasite from eating out that took my digestion for a major turn. Thankfully, I used some of what I learned in her class to help me fully recover once I was able to get rid of the parasite - by continuing a pattern of aware and healthy food choices. As a result, I'm feeling as good as I've ever felt.
I would recommend this coaching program for anyone that feels off track in their bodies and needs some friendly, loving support to learn and try new pathways to wellness.
~ Ruth Milligan, Public Speaking, Presentation and Storytelling Training and Coaching www.articulationinc.com
“I have more energy and have lost 18 pounds. And I’m still going!”
”Amy accepted me and my unhealthy lifestyle just as I was and pointed me to where I could be. The lessons I learned during the program gave me the courage to make changes that I could keep -- all without being hungry! Just four months after completing the program, I have more energy and have lost 18 pounds. And I am still going! The program definitely was worth the investment in myself."
~ Ginny Barney, Past City Manager for Upper Arlington
"Jim's cholesterol has gone down from 220 to 190!"
"Dear Amy, I forgot to share good news with you! Jim's cholesterol has gone down below 200 and his good cholesterol and triglycerides have also changed for the better. I am so proud of him for working on his diet and so thankful to you for all of your care, concern, and obviously wisdom! We adore you!"
~ Jenn & Jim Wallace, Columbus, OH
"You went beyond just being a "nutrition counselor" and showed me how every single part of my life fit together and how they affected each other and how that in turn affected my eating habits and how my eating habits affected everything else!"
At every session I could feel your concern and genuine interest in helping me reach my goals. You had answers for all of my questions and I loved the little gifts and treats you made me. You really tailored the whole program around what I needed and I appreciated that. You went beyond just being a "nutrition counselor" and showed me how every single part of my life fit together and how they affected each other and how that in turn affected my eating habits and how my eating habits affected everything else!

"Your ability to simplify information and create steps that are easy to do and keep doing is the best I've ever seen."
"I want to thank you for the excellent information and inspiration you provided last evening at our Women on Fire gathering. You are so refreshing. While I've appreciated wellness and holistic practices for a long time, I have really fallen away from the good practices.
Your congruence of walking the talk is impressive at many levels. Not only does your passion shine through, you have a gentle caring spirit for others. I sincerely received your desire for my wellness. Your ability to simplify information and create steps that are easy to do and keep doing is the best I've ever seen. --
~ Jerry Browning, The Chiron Company -- Organizational Consultancy, Training & Coaching, Columbus, OH
"She beamed with self confidence. You have given all of us such a gift."
"Amy, there were relatives that haven't seen Mollie in a year and they kept remarking how wonderful she looked and how healthy she was. I wish that you could have seen her confidence. Even through her sadness of her grandfather’s passing...she beamed with self confidence. You have given all of us such a gift. Thank you."
~ Andrea Dowding, Executive Director for Thirty-One Gifts and Life Coach, Columbus, Ohio
"You have such a gift for mentoring and coaching."
"What you give to me is far beyond nutrition. You inspire and motivate me in all aspects of my life. For that I thank you dearly."
~ Paula Jurko, Owner of Footpath to Wellness & BodyTalk Practitioner, Powell, OH
"Dear Amy -- You are a healer and so empowered. It is obvious - you are a rare soul as far as so many other qualities about you. You don’t just aim to help, but to serve and heal. You have been so ridiculously helpful and resourceful and it really was divine the way I met you and the unfolding from there. I could feel when I met you that I was headed to some massive transitions/growth or something, and my entire life for the last six months has been on high speed with it all. I have so gained from your energy throughout. THANKS A MILL! I am grateful."
~ Tricia Lerdon, Therapist/Counselor-The Center for Psychology and Mind Body Healthcare, Columbus, OH
"Amy taught me to connect my occasional headache, or mild joint pain, or mood swings to the food I was putting in my body. I mean, it was obvious to me if I ate something that upset my stomach, but Amy helped me realize many more subtle connections. She coached me toward an amazing feeling of true wellness, when the body is actually functioning the way it SHOULD and all systems are happy and healthy.
The best part of the whole process was that Amy encouraged me every step of the way, on the phone, in the grocery store, even in my own kitchen. She puts her heart and soul into her practice so you feel genuinely supported and excited to try new things."
~ Marti Post, Associate Director, Social Media at Resource Interactive, Columbus, OH
"Amy not only invited me to re-explore the wonderfulness of cooking at home and eating healthy, local foods, but she empowered me with the knowledge to choose the healthiest items when shopping. Now I am part of a local co-op and enjoy discovering new recipes to share with my friends and family. I would recommend the program to anyone who is interested in making better food choices and who wants to generally feel better in their life."
~ Beth, Columbus, OH
“I sought Amy's help to regain some balance and harmony in my life and couldn't have been happier with the time we spent. In addition to helping me understand my issues, she made thoughtful suggestions, recommended other sources (websites/books), and even provided me with a great book and healthy food samples. She is a wonderful and warm-hearted healer whose counsel I hold in the highest regard. I have recommended Amy to friends and will continue to do so."~ Doyle, Columbus, OH
“Amy is one of those rare people who come into your life and help you to see the world differently. She doesn't preach or lecture, but she has an amazing quality the lets her look through all the walls and filters you have for yourself and see your potential and true beauty, and she is somehow able to help you see that in yourself too!” ~ Kim, Columbus, OH
“I was an active adult and hypoglycemia started to interfere with my day to day health and activities. A healthier lifestyle became necessary as well as desirable. I needed to move from a diet of near exclusive meat and starch to something that included a better balance for my body.
Such a change seemed daunting. I felt a little panic at the thought of never eating ice cream again. In Amy I found a supportive ally motivated to be my friendly source of inspiration and ideas. We worked with foods that would work with my lifestyle and budget as well as work with my natural curiosity - but at my pace!
In the last year I gained a solid foundation for lasting change in my approach to food, cooking and eating. I have a busy career and travel schedule and eat better, more balanced than ever. Today, I am willing to experiment and reach out for new food experiences because, with Amy's help, I found the fun, and personal value, of food in my life.
The individual attention and tailoring of her program to my needs makes it all very easy to recommend to anyone that wants to improve their quality of life.
Really, no one who knows me can quite believe I eat asparagus frittatas for breakfast. I'd never purchased asparagus before last year!” ~ Jodie, Pickerington, OH
