    Susi's Story

    I had always thought myself to eat very healthy but was shocked to find that I was eating the wrong things for my body. As soon as I adopted her changes, my life totally changed, and I’m still feeling better and better each day!

    Numerous doctor’s visits couldn’t help me figure out what was wrong with me and the only two fixes they did tell me were the pill or antidepressants, completely off base from what was actually wrong with me. I’m so thankful I found Annette, who finally showed me what a pain-free life was like!

    Anthony's Story

    With a change of diet I immediately saw changes. I had weight loss of 10-15 pounds and my energy level was higher. Also, with my new diet, my highs and lows after eating leveled out. I have continued my diet for 5 months and probably will continue with this way of eating from now on. With this new diet I have had no desire to eat the foods that I ate before. It has become a new way of life for me.

    I have been very impressed with Annette's care and concern for my health and she is more thorough than my doctors. Her attention to detail is very impressive. I highly recommend Annette!!!!

About

Small beach pic 

  

I thought I was doing everything right…  Vegetables and Running, what could be bad?  Hi, my name is Annette Vivian.

I'm a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and also a Certified Gluten Practitioner, I was born and raised on a small Island in the British Isles named the Isle of Man, I traveled and worked globally as an Accountant before discovering my real passion as a result of becoming really sick. I regained my health by working out my nutritional needs. I went back to school and studied Real Food Nutrtional Science.

I live in Gilroy, California with my family. I've regained my own health, love helping others do the same, and couldn't be happier!

I spent so many years doing what I thought was “Healthy”: Eat low fat, Avoid red meat, Go for a run. And I just got sicker and sicker. I went from running half marathons in under 2 hours, to getting dizzy when I stood up and out of breath when I attempted to walk upstairs, and these were just a few of my numerous symptoms! 

But I’m living proof: no matter what you’ve done in the past, the human body is amazingly resilient.  Read my full story......

 

What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy identifies the root causes of deficiencies or imbalances that may be making you sick or keeping you from optimal health. By focusing on the foundations of health, nutritional therapy improves the assimilation of the nutrients you consume, which enables your body to reverse or delay chronic illness.

I am a Certified Nutritional Therapist.  We believe that total health can be achieved by following in the footsteps of our ancestors and eating a properly prepared, nutrient rich diet and assessing each individual to resolve any deficiencies or dysfunctions that are stopping you from enjoying great health and vitality.

I work with you to make it doable for your lifestyle - Becoming Healthy Made Easy!

Testimonials

  • Maddison

    My name is Maddison and I am a 20 year old college student that finally feels in control of their health. Well, I think the best way to start this off would be to explain how I used to feel.

    - My entire life I have had stomach problems: stomach aches, bloating, abnormal bowel movements, and cramps. Up until a few months ago when I started working with Annette, I couldn’t even remember the last time I felt truly healthy.

    - On top of stomach aches, I had really bad headaches, even migraines. At a point I honestly thought I had a brain tumor and was getting referrals to a see a neurologist. I had headaches, blurry vision, nausea, couldn’t sleep (only getting about 4 hours of sleep a night and waking up constantly, I eventually got prescribed Ambien to take on a nightly basis), excessive weight gain (without changing diet or exercise), never ending hunger with an excessive craving for carbs, and I was honestly an emotional roller coaster.

    - Last year, my first year at college, I went to the health center 25 times, Urgent Care twice, and even had to transfer my HMO down here because I was seeing so many doctors. In my mind it was obvious that something wasn’t right, but the doctors were never able to find anything. When I started talking to Annette I was quite skeptical, that was until she had me take the initial questionnaire and I saw proof that my problems were real.

    - Annette explained in easy to understand language how my symptoms could be relieved through dietary changes and different supplements of nutrients I could be lacking. Up until then I had always thought I had a healthy diet; I avoided junk food, didn’t eat fast food, ate whole grains, didn’t eat red meat. But then Annette educated me on the fact that some foods just don’t work with your body and how important the things you put in your body are in regard to your entire health.

    - Annette started off by suggesting some diet changes for one month to help with sugar handling and to see if taking this stuff away would improve my digestion and uncover some root causes of my symptoms. This immediately made me incredibly nervous because I had no clue how to go about this. I didn’t even know what I could eat and giving up all of these foods were honestly scary. Annette gave me lots of suggestions and tips as to how to make it easy.

    - After only 3 days of following Annette’s advice I already felt an extreme difference. I didn’t feel nauseous, I had a smaller appetite, my headaches were not as bad and less frequent and that was just the beginning.

    - It has now been 3 months and all these dietary changes have become a new lifestyle and I don’t ever want to go back.

    - I feel so good now, I don’t nap, I’m emotionally stable (no longer anxious or easy to cry and breakdown), I am finally losing weight, I no longer have migraines filled with blurry vision or nausea, and my most recent success is I have been able to sleep soundly through the night without the aid of prescription sleeping pills (Ambien).

    - As a result of the positive impact of some of the changes I made and some of the things Annette highlighted, my doctors also did eventually see I'd developed a medical condition and prescribed me some medication, which I use currently in conjunction with the diet changes.

    - My end goal is to not have to take medication and be able to get everything I need nutritionally through foods and supplements.

    - Some days I break and take a few bites of things I shouldn't have and I feel it almost immediately and it reminds me why I made the changes to begin with. Getting adjusted to these dietary changes is hard in the beginning, but trust me how you feel after just a few weeks will make it all so worth it.

    - I went to the health center 25 times last school year, so far these 3 months of school I have been only once. Thank you Annette for really helping me turn my life around! - Maddison, San Luis Obispo, California.

  • Nancy

    “When I started working with Annette my headache that I’d had 24/7 was gone after a few days. She helped me find better ways to deal with my afternoon sugar cravings, I felt motivated to exercise, I finally started to lose some weight which had been a real challenge previously despite restricting my food intake, this surprised me as now I was able to eat all my favorite foods again, like eggs, avocados, etc.

    Another surprise was that I didn’t have a flare of the Arthritis in my hands.

    Annette gave me many tips on how to source the foods that my body needs, tools to identify which foods my body finds stressful and gave me access to many delicious recipes. By following the personal plan that Annette designed for me I’m able to look and feel so much better." Nancy, Bay Area, California, USA

  • Brenda

    "I feel the reason Annette has been able to help me attain my health goals is because she has firsthand experience with her own food challenges and has an authentic passion for healing through proper nutrition.

    During our first session, she customized a tangible plan for how I could improve my health habits and I had a better understanding of why certain foods and certain lifestyle behaviors were affecting my quality of life.

    We have been working together for almost six months now and her nutritional therapy approach is gentle (yet firm when I need it :), easy to understand and effective.

    With the proper nutrition tools and knowledge she has taught me, I am making daily positive choices, one meal at a time, and can feel a difference in my energy level and see positive changes in my overall physical appearance. Thank you NutriCoach!! XO" - Brenda, Los Angeles, California, USA

    "I was trying to avoid Diabetes as it runs in my family, Annette helped me identify all of the sugar that was in my diet, a lot of it was hidden, and she helped me find alternative foods that were healthier as well as quick and easy.

    She also helped me navigate the grocery store and taught me what to look for on food labels, focusing on the back of the product rather than on the front side". Carol, Bay Area, California, USA

  • Susi

    "Annette saved me from my own body! I came to her with a long list of complaints stemming from what I discovered was gluten- related digestive issues that included brain fog, sluggishness, and absolutely horrific PMS symptoms that would last two weeks each month.

    I had always thought myself to eat very healthy but was shocked to find that I was eating the wrong things for my body. As soon as I adopted her changes, my life totally changed, and I’m still feeling better and better each day! Numerous doctor’s visits couldn’t help me figure out what was wrong with me and the only two fixes they did tell me were the pill or antidepressants, completely off base from what was actually wrong with me.

    I’m so thankful I found Annette, who finally showed me what a pain-free life was like!"
