Nutrition & Reiki for Bulimia Recovery:

“Hey Jenna, You may not remember me, but you’ve changed my entire life…and for that, I want to thank you. I am now more than a full year of completely recovered from bulimia. I’m the happiest and healthiest I have ever been. You have a true gift. And I wish you all the success as you continue to change lives. Thank you for everything.”  –Email received from former client

Nutritional services for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS):  “For the past 2 years I’ve been to gastroenterologists and food allergy specialists trying to figure out why I was having digestive issues. I’ve been through multiple tests and been on restrictive diets, none of which has helped. Since I met Jenna 6 weeks ago I can honestly say that this is the best that I felt in 2 years, my symptoms have improved by at least 90% ! I would highly recommend Jenna!” — R.L.

 

Nutritional consultation for balanced eating:  “I committed at the start of the new year to eat healthier, exercise and lose weight. One month into my new routine I decided to meet with Jenna as I was not seeing the results I had hoped for. I was eating well (or so I thought) and exercising yet I was not losing much weight and felt tired all the time because I was starving myself. When I met with Jenna she told me my diet was out of balance which explained the lack of weight loss and constant fatigue.

Jenna has an impressive understanding of nutrition but is also able to explain complex nutrition concepts in a way I could understand. I am more apt to follow directions when I understand them and they make sense which Jenna provided.

Jenna explained what nutrients my body needed to sustain the exercise routine, lose weight and maintain a good energy level while not feeling like I was starving myself.

I left our first meeting with a food plan that was more generous, tasty, varied and filling than what I was consuming prior to the visit. It is comforting to know that I am now consuming the nutrients my body requires to maintain my energy levels and yet lose weight. The guidance from Jenna did not result in a diet plan that I would follow for a while then fall back into bad habits. I now have a delicious lifelong diet that I enjoy which maintains my energy, provides the appropriate nutrients for my exercise routine and helps me lose weight.

3 months later at our second meeting we were both elated to see that I had lost 15 pounds. Thanks from a happy client! — S.G.

Nutrition services for eating disorder recovery:  “I started seeing Jenna at Whole-istic Living in the summer shortly after I arrived back from two years working abroad.  I had been struggling with an eating disorder and the anxiety that surrounds those habits for about a year and was hoping to develop a more healthy relationship with nutrition that would allow me the energy and peace of mind that I wanted to enjoy my life more fully.  

Jenna was awesome about meeting me where I was at with my anxiety surrounding eating and exercise.  She explained to me small changes that I could make and maintain every week or few weeks in my eating and the biological reasons that they were important.  She constantly asked me what changes I was comfortable making and challenged me but listened to me about my level of comfort and never went beyond what I was comfortable with.  In addition she remained positive and supportive throughout the experience.  After a less successful week, I would often come into her office anxious and discouraged but always left refocused and re-energized towards my goals.  She came up with creative solutions that went beyond just healthier eating habits (such as healthy lifestyle suggestions, recipes and products, how to go out to eat, exercise, etc).  

One of my biggest concerns was developing a stable nutritional balance after I reached a healthy weight and Jenna continued to support me until I felt comfortable maintaining my nutrition habits independently.  Thanks to about 6 months of work with Jenna I have reached my goal of a much healthier and happier relationship with eating and nutrition and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a focused, creative, and supportive nutritionist.” –Z.G.

Nutritional services for digestive disturbances/IBS:  “I found Jenna when I was searching for a holistic nutritionist to address a variety of health conditions I had been dealing with for years. I was sick of being given medications to try to fix all of the problems and I felt like there must be another way. One of the big issues I was having was a variety of GI symptoms. I had been dealing with this for over 6 years and had tried some medications and seen many specialists.
 
When I met Jenna and told her all of my different symptoms, she was the first person that finally validated my thought that all of these issues were connected and could be helped through diet changes. It finally seemed to make sense and I was so happy to feel understood. Jenna was so great working with me to help me slowly make changes to my diet. I never felt overwhelmed and she was always very responsive to any questions, explaining the reasoning for any diet changes or additions.
 
Jenna started the journey for me of health through nutrition and I can’t thank her enough for that. I have already recommended her to a variety of family and friends who have complained about GI and other chronic issues. I would recommend her to anyone who has any chronic health problems and wants to learn how to feel better and heal through nutrition and lifestyle changes!”
–T.G.
 
Nutritional services for heart health and leg cramps:
“I started seeing Jenna about two years ago… I was on several medications for high blood pressure, high cholesterol & thyroid problems as well as severe leg cramps. I didn’t know what to eat or not eat. She advised me on healthy food, which juice & tea to drink to help me & cream for the leg cramps, which were gone a week later! I’m going back soon for more help to make me as healthy as possible with the least amount of medication. This has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. ” –S.T.
Nutritional services for Grave’s disease/thyroid hormone balance:  “Jenna is amazing!  Truly!  I came to Jenna for help in treating an autoimmune condition with an overactive thyroid.  One of my issues was that my body was in overdrive.  I couldn’t eat enough and was losing weight.  I knew from the start that any treatment I used would need to include good, healthy, nutritious food.  I also knew that I would need help figuring out what would actually be healing for my condition.  I was determined to heal my body naturally with no medication.  Since food is medicine, I knew that was an important component for me.  Jenna became a vital member in my healing team.  She is really smart and understood all the “numbers” and “data” from my blood and lab results.  She helped me incorporate delicious, nutrient dense, healing foods into my regular eating plan, which resulted in me regaining my normal weight and keeping it there.  My lab work is back in the “normal” range, and I know that continuing to eat well is a huge part of that.
 
 
Jenna is smart, kind, compassionate and considerate.  She truly knows and understands the science as well as the heart of nutrition so she can tailor her approach to the unique needs of each person.  More importantly, she never scolds or shames.  Rather, she supports and celebrates each positive change.  I’ve been raving about her to my friends and keep sending people to her for help.  They all love her as well.  I am truly grateful for all the ways Jenna has helped me on my journey back to health.” — J.H.

Nutritional services for Crohn’s / Colitis:  “I went to Jenna looking for help in managing my diagnosis of Crohn’s Colitis. Medication helped but I was having a difficult time identifying and avoiding foods that would trigger a flair. As a result finding a diet that would give me the nutrition and energy I needed seemed impossible. After working together to figure out what foods did not agree with me, Jenna helped me discover other foods and alternatives, along with ways of preparing them, that not only tasted great but made my body feel good. The change in my life was incredible. I can eat a wide variety of delicious food and my last gastroenterology exam showed no signs of inflammation! On a side note, my appointments with Jenna were like mini therapy sessions. Jenna is incredibly easy to talk to and listens without judgement… Thanks Jenna!” –H.M.

 

Lifestyle change for enhancing health and wellbeing:  “I had been frustrated with my diet and some aspects of my health for a while – mostly my energy levels and a little extra body weight, and a friend of mine told me Jenna was a big help, so I decided to see her. Jenna and I reviewed my existing diet together in our first appointment, and almost immediately she pointed out some major deficiencies that I should have been conscious of, but I guess I was just complacent. From that point, I was sold, and I really started to listen.
Jenna and I began working together first on the baby steps of a new plan of action. One of those steps was planning ahead and finding interesting ways to incorporate what was lacking in my diet. I now go to the supermarket at the beginning of every week to stock up on fresh produce and feel more confident navigating nutrition labels, which used to be confusing for me. Once I had that down, we continued to tweak my routine each session. It has been about three months so far, and I have to say it has worked wonders. I have more energy in the morning and throughout the day, I’ve lost a little weight, and one thing I didn’t expect was that I have this new understanding in the back of my mind that I’m taking care of myself and my body, and that’s pretty cool. I would highly recommend Jenna and Whole-istic living to anyone who needs a change, but doesn’t know where to start.” — M.M.

Reiki for anxiety and panic attacks: “My life has changed since meeting Jenna and receiving Reiki. I was diagnosed with PTSD and suffering with terrible Panic attacks which happened multiple times a day including not able to sleep more than n 2 hours a night. I was introduced to Jenna by my primary care Doctor. I had my first distance Reiki session from home while experiencing a severe panic attack. At the end of the session, to my surprise, the panic attack had diminished, I felt calmer than I had been in weeks, and I was able to get through the rest of the day without medication. That night I had slept 6 hours. This felt like a miracle. I met with Jenna later that week for an in-office visit and continued weekly for a period of time. After each visit I could feel the anxiety lift off of me and I was calmer and more grounded. Eventually the panic attacks would become more infrequent and weaker until they finally disappeared. Thanks to Jenna I have been panic/anxiety free and living a “normal” healthy life.” – J.L.

 

Reiki for stress reduction and pain relief:  “After a very busy and activity filled Christmas holiday, filled with family, friends, activities, eating and drinking, I was left feeling exhausted and somewhat overwhelmed. Not quite sure if I needed a massage or a vacation, I looked into a new technique, Reiki, which has been known to address many of the issues/feelings I was experiencing. In just one session with Reiki therapist, Jenna Volpe, a certified practitioner, I felt some immediate relief. During the session itself, I experienced a feeling of calm and relaxation, which gave me renewed energy and a relaxed feeling after the session was over. Jenna also created a very relaxing and calming environment with her gentle, warm personality and knowledge of the technique. Additionally , I had some muscle soreness that seemed to abate after the Reiki session. Although, I have only had one Reiki appointment, I definitely experienced the benefits and will continue to seek the emotional and physical healing through my therapist Jenna Volpe. Thank you Jenna!” –L.K.

Nutritional services for autoimmunity:  “Jenna absolutely knows her stuff. I’ve had no nutritionist ever that could match her. Her holistic approach makes all the difference in the world for somebody like me because I have an autoimmune disorder.” –N.W.

 

Nutritional counseling for lifestyle and mindset:  “Jenna is AMAZING on every level for knowledge, support and guidance in nutrition and individualized goals! She is patient, understanding and makes you feel at peace for where you are at on your relational journey with health and overall wellness! I extremely recommend her for quality services across the board!!!!” –N.H.
