  • My Physician had recommended I consult with Faye in 2006, but I did not make up my mind I needed to change my life to control my weight until mid 2007. I decided to take his advice and made an appointment. My goals were to get to my ideal weight by the end of 2008 and to improve my overall nutritional habits. While I am still working on both of those goals, I have had a few surprises along the way.
  • The first week or so on the diet we saw an incredible change. My son’s rages were fewer in number and less intense. Around the two week mark however, those rages peaked at an all time high. It was as though my son had turned into the incredible Hulk.
  • I just wanted to write and thank you for the huge role you’ve played in helping our boys already! As you know, we’re still sort of new on this journey, but we are so grateful that we were referred to you in the very beginning.
