One-on-One Program infoThink of me as a personal trainer for your child’s health.

You know you could probably do this on your own, but you don’t.

I understand – I’m like that, too! I find that I’m more consistent and dedicated when I have a personal trainer because I’m accountable to her.

Health coaching works the same way, and when you’re in my proprietary One-on-One Program, I’m your “guide on the side” as well as your accountability partner.

My proprietary 6-Month One-on-One Health-Coaching Program is for you if you…

  • Want to kickstart your child’s recovery with someone who has been through the process herself
  • Want to save your family time, money and effort by working with someone who knows the ins and outs of biomedical recovery as well as many different types of therapies
  • Want someone to prioritize therapies so you can get the most bang for your buck, faster
  • Want personal access and attention to your child’s health
  • Want a health coach that will look at your family’s health (mom, dad & siblings)
  • Want someone with access to and knowledge of top-notch practitioners in your area
  • Want to cut through loads of information with clear direction and a clear path
  • Want to avoid the overwhelm of doing it yourself
  • Want to avoid pharmaceuticals
  • Want specific and individualized recommendations for tests and therapies
  • Are frustrated by the lack of results from the “healthcare” system
  • Are willing to put in the time and effort to “do the work”
  • Understand that “woo woo” issues such as emotions, family trauma, spirituality and subtle energy can have a profound effect on your child’s health
  • Want a comprehensive approach to recovering your child, not just dealing with nutrition advice here or therapeutic advice there

It IS possible to recover your child’s health!

It’s a real challenge to know what to do to recover your child’s health. It’s so confusing! It’s also very likely that you’re just too tired or in too much pain to find out what it takes.

Or you’re putting out fires with your children’s health, taking them from one therapist or doctor to another, and you just don’t have the time to do the research to discover how to recover their health.

My struggle with health problems of my own and my children…

I know what it’s like for you and/or your children to have health problems. In fact, I’ve been there myself as I have struggled with insomnia, severe fatigue, “female problems”, constant sickness, shingles (twice!) and more while trying to recover my boys from developmental delays, Sensory Processing Disorder, asthma, allergies, eczema, acid reflux and failure to thrive.  It is draining!

I began reading everything I could get my hands on, trying to figure out why all of this was happening to us and what we could do about it.  (I used to work on Wall Street as an Equity Research Analyst, so I know how to do research!)

I joined Epidemic Answers, first as a blogger and social-media director and was later asked to join the Board of Directors.  I also received training from the Institute for Integrative NutritionTM to become a Certified Holistic Health Counselor.

Fortunately, my research skills paid off when I began to understand how to create health, and my sons and I are so much better now.  They are now fully recovered from Sensory Processing Disorder, asthma, allergies, eczema and acid reflux.

It IS possible to recover your and your child’s health, and my family and my clients are proof of this!

6-Month One-on-One Health-Coaching Program…

Things can get better! I’ll show you how you can start feeling better right away in my program. Click here to learn more about my approach.

We’ll meet every two weeks for a total of 12 sessions.  We’ll cover:

  • Adrenal issues:  Most chronic illnesses and conditions are exacerbated by stress.  I teach you how to undo these effects with diet and lifestyle choices.
  • Thyroid issues:  Thyroid issues are intimately linked to the adrenals and are key for someone who is sick a lot.
  • Food choices:  Many of the foods that we’ve been told are “healthy” are not.  I debunk a lot of food myths for you.
  • Inflammation:  Chronic inflammation is a key component of any chronic illness or disease.  I show you how to undo this vicious cycle.
  • Gut dysbiosis:  Many factors in our modern life such as antibiotics, medication and stressful lifestyle lead to an unhealthy flora balance in our gut.
  • Boosting your immune system:  Did you know that most of your immune system is located in your gut? “Gut health is intimately connected to brain health; the gut is the “second brain”. Learn how by improving your digestion.
  • Gut-healing diet overview:  I walk you through different gut-healing diet options and explain their pros and cons.
  • Implementing a gut-healing diet:  After you’ve selected your gut-healing diet of choice, I’ll help you get it going.
  • Toxicity:  Toxins in our environment, including ones we’re born with, play a huge role in chronic inflammation.
  • Detoxification, including methylation and sulfation:  There are many ways to detoxify, including much that can be done with food choices.
  • Mitochondrial dysfunction:  The mitochondria in our cells are the power generators of our bodies, and they are increasingly getting gunked up by toxins. I’ll walk you through ways to unclog them.
  • Detoxifying your home and life:  It doesn’t do much good to make all of these positive changes if you’re continuously being exposed toxins in your everyday life! I’ll guide you through making positive changes.

All the while, I’ll have you gradually make dietary changes so that it’s not overwhelming, which it can easily be if you try to do it all at once. We will also discuss any developments in your health.

After each session, I’ll send you an email with a presentation of the topic we discussed as well as relevant homework, recipes and resources.

You will get free email support from me between sessions should have any questions or problems in the meantime. I typically offer 24-hour turnaround on your emails.

Testimonials from past clients of my program…

“Brennan was assessed by the social worker today and he’s meeting all 16 month milestones!!!!!!!! I can’t believe it!!!!!! 9 months ago I thought he was destined to a life of disability and now he has a real shot at a somewhat “normal” life. I’m just so amazed with his progress. She closed his file today because he’s no longer in the “red/monitor zone”! I’m one happy momma!”

– Melissa Crawford, MD, Ontario, Canada

“Maria was invaluable in helping me improve my own health and that of my two children who have sensory processing disorder. She provided tons of personal support, listening ear and resources such as informative webinars, specialist referrals, product names, recipes, just to name a few. I would have needed to spend countless hours to even come close to discovering all of those by myself. She is very understanding, smart and insightful when it comes to looking at the root of the problem and finding a path to its resolution. I highly recommend Maria to everybody who feels alone or just lost in all the information about what could be done to help our kids!”

Julia Itskevitch, Sunnyvale, CA

“I thoroughly recommend anyone considering doing the program with Maria to do so.  I did for my son who has been diagnosed with ASD, SPD, anxiety, plus a few more letters of the alphabet! I found Maria to be an absolute wealth of knowledge, completely understanding of the struggles we were facing as well as supportive, encouraging and inspiring.  We still have a long road ahead of us with my son but now I have the tools to help us recover our son.  I intend on continuing with Maria as it is invaluable to us to have someone supporting us who knows exactly what we are going through and how to help us through it.”

Liz Carrapetta, Sydney, Australia

“I feel very grateful and extremely lucky that our paths crossed. No one else cuts across multiple disciplines because that’s the challenge: everyone else is just looking at one piece of the pie. You’ve helped me understand these issues with the eye of a skeptic because you back up what you say with your research.”

Mom, CT

“I consider myself fairly educated and had done a lot of research about Sensory Processing Disorder.  Even so, I’m glad I worked with Maria because she offers a fresh perspective, and, every time I thought I knew it all about a particular issue, Maria would always offer one more thing that was tremendously valuable and help me connect the dots with my son’s health issues.

I cannot express enough the power of her connections – people that she was able to put me in touch with to get my questions answered about therapies specific to my son’s needs.  She worked with me to prioritize the overwhelming number of therapies out there for my son so we could focus on which ones would help the most.

Maria is exactly what I needed, and I’m so thankful I found her.  I’ve seen significant gains with my son who has Sensory Processing Disorder after I followed Maria’s recommendations, particularly about adrenal health.  My DAN! (Defeat Autism Now!) doctor said that “the adrenal support that Maria brought up is profound”.

She also has a lot of insight and connections into therapies that helped, and she helped me find a terrific AIT therapist.  Now, my son is giving me hugs and kisses.  He’s more freedom-seeking and independent, and he’s made huge gains with developmental milestones.  He’s noticing things more and is making huge progress with eating.  He was always a follower, and now his real personality is emerging!  He handles disappointment well now, and he plays with other kids so much better.  In fact, he’s now showing interest in going to school.

Maria has also helped me put MY health on the front burner, too.  It’s so easy to let the stress of taking care of a special-needs child build up and create health problems for the mom.  She made sure to remind me that taking care of my own health is just as important as taking care of my son’s.”

– Monica Stancil, Holly Springs, NC

“Working with Maria has completely changed the lives of my entire family for the better.  Over the course of her program she taught us everything it takes to build our immune systems and lead healthier lives.  My husband and I are both fitness professionals and thought we knew a lot about nutrition and supplements, but after meeting Maria we realized how much more there is to know, and how to sift through all the conflicting information out there!  My family rarely gets sick anymore and we all have more energy.  Thank you Maria for making such an impact and helping us to feel our best!”

Ashley Kindt, Westport, CT
