What Clients Say
“I had been struggling with digestive issues for at least 9 months prior to working with Jennifer. The digestive issues were starting to cause quite a bit of pain and discomfort. I almost dreaded eating meals because I knew I was going to have pain, gas, and bloating if I ate anything. At this point, the only time I have digestion issues is when I veer off my diet and eat foods that are not good for my constitution, are unhealthy, or when I overeat. My digestion is greatly improved. Jennifer has helped be an expert guide in helping me along this path which has given me more energy, mental clarity, and a better quality of life allowing me to thrive in my relationships, work, school, and life.” – K.B., Nurse – TN
“Thank you for your support. I’m so grateful I listened to myself, reached out and got you. I feel supported and encouraged and wonder where I’d be now if I hadn’t found you and a better way to aim for every day. Thank you for everything.” – A.L., Musician – TN
“I had developed a rash on my face over the last 3 to 4 months and had gained back weight. The rash has resolved since working with Jennifer and I have lost some of the weight. I feel I have a better understanding of what foods are right for me to eat. Jennifer is professional, supportive, and intuitive. She was able to identify problem areas and had effective solutions. I feel I have a better understanding of what areas I need to address and the proper foods or supplements needed. I enjoyed working with Jennifer. She helped direct me back to the path I needed to be following.” – A.R., TN
“I was struggling with lower back pain, muscle tightness, dryness, constipation, and a sluggish large colon. I started having problems about ten years ago. My condition was manageable but I was beginning to become noticeably uncomfortable. Some of my feelings of dryness and colon health resolved during my work with Jennifer. Diet suggestions were very helpful since some traditional over the counter methods were not working. I became better educated on how to control my diet properly. I had been using coffee, psyllium and triphala to control my colon health, without realizing the effect that it had on my body type. I feel that my new regimen is going well. I’m watching my diet, exercising, and slowly moving into my next phase which will be using oils as suggested. Jennifer was very helpful and understanding about my concerns and goals. She is skilled, very knowledgeable, and presents herself in a kind and peaceful manner that is very pleasant. She has a passion for her practice, and it really shows when we communicate in our follow-ups.” – J.R., Musician – TN
“Jennifer’s knowledge of Ayurveda provides a significant measure of support for a health management plan. She’s thoughtful, encouraging, and her advice has real potential for impacting health outcomes.” – Remy Coeytaux, M.D., Ph.D.
