I was connected to Liz through a mutual friend as I was going through a diagnosis of breast cancer. In a time when I felt unsure and confused about how I'd manage my health and my emotions, Liz was a steady and clear voice with advice and suggestions on how I could strengthen my immune system and improve my overall health even as I faced surgery, radiation, and other hurdles. Liz's knowledge and calm assurances were more help than I expected. It was wonderful to discuss the process with her and her approach was exactly perfect for me. I felt connected with her even though our sessions were virtual. I'm forever grateful for help during a very stressful time for me.

For years, I have battled skin issues and dry eye and have been on topical steroids and other oral medications, which only made my condition worse. Since my consultation with Liz, my need to take pharmaceuticals has dwindled, my gut has improved; no more bloating, I no longer have dry eye issues and my skin is well on its way to healing. I would highly recommend getting a consultation with Liz for any minor or major health issues. Her abilities and knowledge are vast and extensive.
