Ann Gibson Success Stories

Ann is my savior!

Client

I came to ann with chronic stomach pain that I was suffering for over 5 years. I had seen numerous doctors and tried many different remedies and elimination diets. I wamore

s working with a limited amount of foods. I was not in a great place. Once i started to work with Ann she methodically moved through all the concerns and issues in a very personal and friendly way. We did some tests and ultimately determined the root causes of my pain and discomfort. She worked diligently on helping me to get better. I am proud to say that Ann is my savior and brought the happiness back in my life. Today I eat a full list of foods and have rarely felt sick. I take a smart mix of supplements that help me remain healthy. Ann is fantastic to work with and a great partner to getting healthy, balanced and happy. Thanks Ann! ~ Kristine C., Boulder, Colorado

Ann is a Super-Health Detective!

Client

Ann is without a doubt a Super-Health Detective. She pays meticulous attention to detail and helped me uncover deeper and deeper layers of healing. I was battling with digestive issues, candida, chronic fatigue and some serious imbalances.  Ann helped me discover the root cause to my ailments, after nearly a decade of frustration and confusion of trying to figure things out on my own. She then created a personalized treatment plan for me that was very thorough and effective, and importantly went at exactly the pace I needed to heal. She empowered me with some very practical tools to implement in my daily life to help me create energy and health for myself. Her level of support was very personal and dedicated. Ann has a beautiful Warrior Woman spirit and I felt that she was totally dedicated to supporting me throughout all the emotional challenges I faced in making some serious life changes for myself. ~ Rachael C., Seattle, WA

My thyroid antibodies are GONE & I have tons of energy!

Client

Before seeing Ann, I ‘ d had Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis since I was 11 years old, and Type 1 Diabetes for 20 years. I had  managed both of these to the best of my ability for decades, yet I  was  often struggling. I battled insulin resistance, despite  exercise.more

Then, about 10 years ago, I added depression to my list of maladies  , plus very serious digestive problems, which the gastroenterologist called IBS. Just prior to meeting Ann, my digestive problems worsened considerably,  I was on strong medication for the depression, which caused excessive weight gain, and I had serious exhaustion, sleep and fatigue problems.

After 6 months of working with Ann, my thyroid antibodies are at 0 (meaning my immune system is no longer attacking my thyroid), my insulin resistance   is gone, my GI problems are  completely healed, I am completely off of my strongest psychiatric medication,   I have tons of energy, and I am smiling, smiling, smiling!

I’m thrilled and looking forward to what the future holds.  If I can do this, I can do anything. ~ Amanda M., Columbus, OH
