Testimonials

Personalized Guidance

I highly recommend Maria Bachteal as a personal nutritionist. Faced with a life-threatening illness, as well as chronic GI discomfort, I came to Maria to help me figure out how I could use my diet to transform my health. Maria gave me the specific, personalized information and guidance I needed to make the changes I needed to make. She found ways to make it work for me, within my budget. She has an exceptional depth of expertise that I appreciate, and can always answer my questions about why and how it works, how nutrients affect the body and are metabolized, and how to translate all of that into an action plan. - Juliet


True Understanding

Maria is a gifted expert on managing the nutritional needs of a highly sensitive client. She has a true understanding of food sensitivities and allergies, and is able to make meal suggestions that work. She is indispensable as a guide on how and where to shop, and how to prepare meals and treats that truly satisfy. - Paula


Passion for Nutrition

Maria’s passion for nutrition and health in general has changed my life. She knows her science (so much knowledge about body chemistry and nutrients), and she knows people (how hard it can be to change our habits)! Maria’s program for me of diet, supplements, and lifestyle changes helped me get through major menopausal symptoms and changes. She understood my hectic life and offered a variety of options to make my diet work. She also recommended the right nutrition for me to successfully quit taking medication for depression and settle into a comfortable healthy routine. With her expert support, I have learned strategies for sleeping better, feeling less stressed, and avoiding sickness and disease. I’ve also lost nearly 40 pounds thanks to her! - Deanna
