What We Believe to Be True.

 

“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” – C.S. Lewis

 

See What Clients Have To Say!

When we were working together you had a feeling I had PCOS but unfortunately, the test results were inconclusive.  When I moved to the west coast I continued what we started; however, continued to hit dead ends.  I came off birth control and it was pretty clear fairly quickly that I have PCOS with insulin resistance.  You were right all along.  I know our time working together was brief but you may be one of the greatest influences on my medical journey.  Before working with you I was nervous to “overstep” with my doctors. You helped me realize that my health is mine to advocate for and nobody else’s.  I genuinely believe I would still be struggling physically, emotionally, and mentally with undiagnosed PCOS if it wasn’t for you empowering me to advocate for myself.  I can’t thank you enough for all you have done for me.  K.W. Raleigh

"I have seen other Dietitians, but none like Jill Brown. She is great! She is so knowledgable, but remains personable and explains the complicated world of food in a way that I can understand. She has made my transition into a new eating plan doable, giving me all the tools needed for success. This is the first time I’ve ever made major changes to my diet without feeling totally overwhelmed" - R.S., Western NC
"I appreciate that you are not making me give up my favorite things. I thought for sure that I would come in here and you would cut everything out. Instead, you just built it in, in smaller sizes and made everything else better around it, and it works" - K.H., Chapel Hill
"I have so many different providers, and you are the first person I have talked with that can actually relate to what I have been going through, to help me. I appreciate all of the time you spent with me and your patience in explaining everything" - S.C., Durham
"Thank you so much again for the thorough description of the continuation of my life-saving diet. You have introduced me into a whole new way of eating. I am enjoying food I never even thought of trying. I know it was extra work for you to prepare my program. I appreciate your kindness"- L.L., Durham
I have been working with Jill on the LEAP Protocol and the results have amazed me. After I got the results of my Food Sensitivity Test back, Jill walked me through a meal plan based on my results as well as my food preferences. Initially, I was nervous that the elimination diet would be far too restrictive for me, but Jill was able to show me where to find lots of new recipes and resources to make this process smoother. I am so grateful for the guidance that Jill has provided me and would recommend her and the test to anyone considering it. I am confident you will feel the same way after working with Jill! - E.W., Charlotte
I'm down - A1c lab from primary doctor is down to 5.6! - F.W., Richmond VA

🐟🐟🐟🐟Considering a fish oil supplement?
A 6-month trial 📆 including 200 people aged 60 and older found  increased skeletal muscle mass, strength and physical performance compared to the placebo group.
🤩 And that's not all.
The 💊 supplement group decreased serum triglycerides and increased HDL cholesterol 👍(think "H" for high - this is our protective cholesterol). The dose was 1340 EPA and 1007 of DHA for the supplement group, but individuals on blood thinning medications may need a lower amount!
A good place to start is Nordic Naturals Omega2000 or Kirkland brand by Costco is approved by Consumer Labs as a good quality supplement.
