Nancy Guski: “A big thank you to Kathryn Matthews for working with me to better understand the importance of clean eating. It is helping me to stay stronger during my treatment for Stage 2 breast cancer. I will continue making healthy food choices long after my recovery. I also like the way Kathryn has individualized my needs with supplements that are boosting my immune system. She has guided me through all of this with great expertise and kind and gentle encouragement. I can’t thank her enough!”
B. Griffith: “Kathryn is very caring, professional and knowledgeable—and I would recommend her to all of my family and friends. I have a strong family history of diabetes, and my goal was not to be a diabetic dependent on medication. Although my doctor believed that she would have to put me on diabetes medication, my work with Kathryn enabled my blood glucose numbers to drop into an almost normal range. My doctor wanted to know what my “secret” was! By tweaking my diet and lifestyle, and supplementing with essential nutrients, I lost weight—without being on a restricted diet or having to count calories.
I have energy now, too! I used to plan activities in advance, but end up not following through on my plans because I was too tired. Now, I have energy to live my life! Another big change that I’ve noticed since I started working with Kathryn is that my stomach pain and headaches have diminished. Where have you been all my life, especially in my quest to be pain-free?!”
Arielle Adamy: “I’m a new mom who is still breast-feeding, and after I did the Body Reset Cleanse, I lost 10 pounds! This is significant because I had been stuck at my old weight no matter what I did—and I successfully released those 10 pounds during the cleanse! I also noticed that I had way more energy and that my singing voice (I teach singing) was clear right from the start, first thing in the morning! My sleep was also deeper and more restorative—really incredible for a mom always being awakened by a teething baby! I also really liked the recipes, many of which I still use and were pretty easy to make.”
Fiona Bagnall: “In working with Kathryn, I have learned to reconnect with my body on both a physical and emotional level. Kathryn helped me achieve my health goals—which included losing weight, eliminating my digestive distress, clearing up my rosacea and dealing with sugar cravings—by teaching me what to eat, how to be mindful of my own emotional needs and self-care, being conscious of my “eating environment” and by filling nutritional gaps using specific supplements.
Since I started working with Kathryn, the biggest changes I have noticed are that I no longer have brain fog; I have loads more energy; and, my once weekly migraines have disappeared. In pinpointing food sensitivities, my digestion has improved dramatically. As a client, I found Kathryn committed and supportive in helping me achieve results. She is also inspiring because she “walks the talk”. I would recommend Kathryn to anyone needs guidance and support in addressing address dietary and body issues.”
Emily S.: “When I first came to see Kathryn, I was perpetually tired, and, literally, felt sick to my stomach all the time. Using the tools that Kathryn gave me, I was able to see how my eating patterns and eating habits affected my energy—and stomach—and I was able to take action to make real impactful changes. Lifestyle changes don’t happen overnight, but the amount of progress I was able to make after working with her for a few months shows how effective she is at what she does and how dedicated she is to her clients. Kathryn is extremely supportive and encouraging. She genuinely cares about seeing her clients meet their goals —and gives them the tools to do so. I would recommend Kathryn to anyone who is looking to make lifestyle changes and is willing to make the commitment to achieve real, meaningful changes over time. I was amazed at what I was able to accomplish in just a few months while working with Kathryn.”
M. Wood: In my quest to have more energy (I was tired of feeling tired and sluggish all the time), my goal was to establish healthy eating habits and to incorporate healthy home cooking into my busy life. Over the 6 months that we worked together, Kathryn helped me create an infrastructure for this, including mindful eating practices and reducing exposure to toxins, etc. —customized to my busy life—that has enabled me achieve these goals. She is very knowledgeable, passionate about health and an excellent resource. Our focus on digestive health helped me see how the foods I was eating affected me—not only physically, but also emotionally. I also learned effective ways of reducing stress—how to find time to focus on myself and my health. Kathryn also guided me on how to effectively set up my kitchen (I’m not a cook!)—with the right tools and appliances—that would make it easier for me to eat healthfully.
The most significant change I have noticed is that, physically, I feel so much better than I have in the past. Through our work together, I was able to identify food sensitivities, like wheat, gluten and dairy that had been contributing to my low energy. I also came to understand that optimizing health and nutrition is less about “you are what you eat”—it’s really about what you are able to digest and absorb.
Kathryn provided many tools and resources that enabled me to transition to healthier eating, lifestyle habits and better manage stress. Her continual encouragement motivated me to stay on track, and she showed me how to adapt “healthy eating” when circumstances changed (eg, travel, social situations, eating at home vs work). I would recommend Kathryn to all my friends—I already have!
Amanda Fuselli: “My goals had been to lose weight, resolve my digestive issues, and to better understand why I would have binging moments. Kathryn opened my mind to taking a different approach to eating. In the process of working with her, I discovered that I had a sensitivity to eggs—once I eliminated them, my stomach issues subsided. Kathryn also created an environment that felt safe: I felt like I could speak freely—and not be judged. I learned about stress—in all its different forms—and became much more aware of what triggers me to overeat. It was very helpful for me to learn how to heal your gut through certain foods. Kathryn’s customized program gave me guidelines, tracking tools and recipes that helped me go from eating every two hours (or grazing), to eating three meals a day and a snack. I was also able to dramatically reduce my fruit consumption from 10 to 12 servings to 2-3 servings.”
Michele Carpenter: “Kathryn inspires me to eat right! She’s an inner voice buzzing in my mind whenever I make food choices. I learned so much from doing Kathryn’s 7-Day Body Reset Cleanse. I now understand which foods make my body feel good, happy and energized and which foods make me feel bad, bloated, or trigger stomach pain. Just by “eating clean” (vegetables, lean protein, healthy fats), I lost 4 pounds—without even trying! I have great energy and experience deeper, sounder sleep. I can now look at chocolate—and not want it. I have learned how not to be an emotional eater and how to deal with cravings. Best of all, I enjoyed the recipes—they were tasty and delicious—and I never felt deprived or hungry during the cleanse. I will continue to incorporate Kathryn’s cleanse recipes into my regular, home cooking meal plans.”
Jill Pond: “At a recent family function, everyone told me how great I looked—not only did they notice my weight loss; I also got a lot of compliments about my skin and hair! Doing Kathryn’s 7-Day Body Reset Cleanse brought me closer to being healthy than anything else I’ve done previously. I haven’t felt this good—or looked this good—in a very long time, and I really do owe it all to Kathryn.
By doing the Guided 7-Day Body Reset Cleanse, I lost 7 pounds and my energy and digestive health improved. I also felt emotionally lighter—optimistic and positive, mood-wise. With the guided version of the cleanse, I had access to Kathryn—which was super helpful as I had many questions, and her guidance and support enabled me to stay on track.”
Darnell Sutton: “Before I started working with Kathryn, I was tired all the time; I got winded very quickly; and I was always worried about my high cholesterol and my heart health. I was also very confused about the “right” foods to be eating—were nuts too high in fat? Would eating fatty fish help lower my cholesterol? Should I be eating only low-fat or no-fat foods? My chronic exhaustion affected my personal relationships—because I had so little energy, I had no desire to socialize with friends. I also struggled with persistent stomach pain and digestive issues.
With Kathryn’s guidance and support, I now have a constant, sustained level of energy throughout the day. She created a program for me that got results. Her program included suggested meals, healthy dine out / cook-in options, customized supplementation, even a session at the Union Square farmers’ market where I learned how to ask farmers the right questions. Since working with Kathryn, my cholesterol has come down. My digestive health has improved significantly. And, now, I rarely experience stomach pain.
By making her suggested (small) changes within the context of my very busy life, I experienced big results. I now know what and how I should be eating in a way that gives me energy, keeps me full and satisfied, and prevents me from mindlessly eating sugar. I feel confident about my food choices, whether I’m cooking at home—or eating out with friends. I am experiencing greater drive, focus and productivity. I feel happier and more confident in my own body, and friends and colleagues have commented on my weight loss (not that I was trying to lose weight!). And, yes, I have the energy and desire to spend time with friends again!”
Bethany Weise: “I was excited to do the Guided 7-Day Body Reset Cleanse because I was tired of feeling bloated, heavy, sluggish, lethargic and unmotivated. I wanted use this cleanse as an opportunity to jumpstart my health.
And it did! Though I had a couple of “getting-over-the-hump” days, the 3 sessions with Kathryn really helped me stay on track.
I’m proud to say that I finished the entire 7 day cleanse …and the rewards—clearer skin, weight loss (7 pounds!), deeper sleep and feeling more positive and energized—were well worth the effort. I’m happy that I did the cleanse, and I’m happy with the results. I’m now much more attuned to when I’ve eaten something unpleasant or if I’ve eaten too much.”
