Testimonials from New Hampshire - Oct 2015

The information presented was practical, useful, and incredibly helpful. Networking with people facing the same issues helped me immeasurably as I begin this journey. I highly recommend this retreat to anyone dealing with celiac at any point in their adventure.

Best way to process all the gluten free challenges we face!!

Melinda is compassionate, generous, fun and on top of the comprehensive, thorough and totally reliable information.

So nice not to worry about cooking and eating! A great weekend! Very supportive atmosphere!

Santa Barbara Gluten-Free Retreat January 2016
Testimonials from Santa Barbara Retreat - Jan 2016
This retreat weekend has changed my life! Melinda's knowledge and kind heart has given me confidence and hope in understanding my celiac condition and planning a positive path forward.

The workshop was outstanding. Melinda is an organized and thorough teacher who covers numerous topics. The information was very helpful and the retreat was thoroughly enlightening and enjoyable.

This retreat was like heaven. To be with others that are dealing with the same issues, listen to lectures by Melinda who completely answered all my questions, and eat the delicious gluten-free food that was prepared went way beyond my expectations. Thank you for this excellent weekend!

Absolutely loved Melinda's knowledge and  love for the subject - and loved the people here. Warm and caring!

Testimonials from past retreats:
"Gluten and I parted ways several months ago, and my life has improved exponentially since then. I now know that all the increasing aches and pains and inflammatory response symptoms I've lived with for the past two years were caused by my newly-diagnosed gluten intolerance.  What I didn't know was how to navigate this new territory of gluten avoidance.
Attending the workshop held recently at Omega Institute helped me to move beyond my own "I can't..." thinking to all the "I can...." possibilities available to me. Melinda's presentations on the pathology of gluten intolerance and celiac disease, the diagnostic tests available, nutritional supplements, and dining, shopping and traveling tips are invaluable."

"I have recently been diagnosed with celiac disease so the information from Melinda was invaluable. This is not just some new fad diet I am trying; it's now my lifestyle, not one that I choose but a matter of health. I am so grateful for Melinda and was put at ease due to the overwhelming situation I was thrown into. She gave me so much info but in a way I could understand, not by reading the info but having it explained in a way that pertained to me."
