" When I first visited Laurie Block, I was recently diagnosed as having type 2 diabetes, learnt that I had suffered a ‘silent’ heart attack, and was suffering through IBS. I was taking two medicines for my diabetes, twice a day and was an unhappy camper. Laurie, through a series of positive reinforcement and guidance, changed my outlook and my life. Within six months, I was down to one medicine for my diabetes and after 9 months, I was off of all of my meds for diabetes and maintained a healthy A1C level of under 6. I dropped around 20 pounds through her guidance and support, and managed to lower my blod lipids to well under 130, without missing any thing in my diet, and I was introduced to the FOD map, which has helped me control my IBS. Laurie was and is a great influence on my life these days, I always think before eating anything, what would she say. Laurie guided me through possible menus for meals, giving me alternative things to ea, and making many wonderful suggestions. This was a real positive experience, never was I scolded for minor or major slipping from my diet. Laurie managed to seriously change my life for the better and I am most appreciative of that."
