In regards to health, people want WHAT WORKS. That is why medication has become so popular over the years! Quick, easy, and it ‘works’. Well if you’re reading this Nutritional Therapy site you probably already recognize medication is not the simple answer for most of the health problems that plague us. Instead of a flashy million dollar pharmaceutical commercial, why not hear from the mouths of people who have experienced renewed health. I wish you could sit and have tea with all the many people who have found hope and healing through natural health, but you’ll just have to take their word for it.

I began working with Lauren in March 2015. I have been recently diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and, last year, with Celiac’s disease. Since going on a “gluten free” diet, I did feel better, but knew I needed more help. Tired of taking over 6 prescription medications, feeling extreme fatigue and generalized body aches, I came to Lauren for help. And help she did! My life has changed dramatically!. Following her recommendations, I feel like a new person. I am able to function without pain and my fatigue level has dropped dramatically! I am only taking one prescription medication for the Hashimotos’s. I know now that the medications I was taking were only band-aids. Lauren has helped to determine the “Root Cause” of my symptoms and I no longer need the medications as the symptoms are under control with dietary changes. Thank you Lauren, for being so helpful and always available for questions.

I started seeing Lauren as she was working her way through Nutritional Therapy School. I found her to be compassionate, knowledgeable, a great teacher and very passionate about her desire to help people regain their health through a holistic and natural approach. When I first came to to Lauren I had been struggling with my health for several years, I was taking between 6-8 different prescription drugs a day, along with several over the counter medications. Healing has been and continues to be a long, slow process with many ups and downs, but today I am prescription free. I can sleep through the night and for the first time in several years, I feel like regaining my health is within my grasp. This wouldn’t have been possible with out Lauren. Her knowledge, passion for health and encouragement have been a life saver!

I began working with Lauren when my cholesterol had gone up significantly despite being on a Paleo diet for over a year and a half. This was not the “typical” response expected with the changes I had made to that point and I wanted advice/recommendations more specific to my individual situation. After a very thorough interview and evaluation, along with a detailed diet analysis, Lauren gave me specific strategies to implement, nutritional changes and “tweaks” to tailor a program to my needs, taking into consideration my history, preferences and response to changes I had previously made. After putting her recommendations into practice, a retest showed a dramatic improvement in my numbers. At the initial session and on subsequent follow up contacts, Lauren was very supportive, knowledgable and able to work in a partnership to further refine a plan to continue to make further gains. All in all, the process was very positive and provided valuable insight into what was a puzzling, frustrating situation.

I started my nutritional therapy journey today with Lauren Smallcomb!! I am so excited! I transitioned to a whole foods based diet after moving to NY a couple of years ago and have made some great changes for my health. Her consultation has helped me create goals and a vision for taking my wellness program to the next level. I highly recommend her!
