Your health is genuinely your wealth, and you can count on Gwendolyn to make you “rich.”
I had a Consultation with Gwen the Nutritionist about my father's health. My father had 2 strokes, Gwen really took time and gave me great advice in how to better take care of my father. She really was a great asset to me on caring for my father's wellness.
My A1C has went down from 8.8 and 6.0 in 3 months since I have been working with you.
Thank you for the 5 Day Healthy Habit Challenge.
Thank you for helping me understand my blood sugars and the insulin. I am able to communicate with my medical team now with confidence.
My grandma was diagnosed with diabetes on NYE and sent home from the ER with pamphlets, insulin, and vague instructions as to how to manage her new medical condition . This is new to us, so on top of trying to manage her health, I also have to manage our emotions. I reached out to Gwendolyn for some suggestions and she was more than helpful. She shared information with us that was easy to understand and just as easy to apply. The doctors are already discussing the possibility of reducing the medication doses because of good management. This is thanks to Gwendolyn because the ER was no help. Most importantly, she helped us address the emotional side of being diagnosed and assured us that my grandmother could be just fine when making minor tweaks to her diet and lifestyle. I highly recommend Gwendolyn if you're trying to figure out how to cope with and manage diabetes.
Gwen is not only an incredible coach but an excellent nurse. I have had the privilege to be her patient and client. She's the type of person that actually inspires you to become and to want more for yourself, I am a healthier person because of my time with her. She’s amazing!
