“Katy Haldiman, a.k.a. “The Paleo Nurse” helped me in so many ways. During my few months under her health coaching services she provided me with so much helpful insight into my condition. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease about six months ago and I found Katy on an online forum for Crohn’s. I was often in pain and being offered the options of several very strong, very expensive pharmaceutical medications. I was currently trying to figure out the right diet to attempt to handle my disorder without the immuno-suppressant drugs that are typically prescribed to patients with Crohn’s.

She not only helped guide me through a custom diet that helped me identify sensitivities as well as move in the direction of healing. I have been without any symptoms for months now (except when I am accidentally exposed to identified sensitivities). She set me up with a number of natural supplements that helped my overall digestion and feeling of wellness, identifying brands and sources for trustworthy products. She always provided so much follow up information to our phone consultations and reminded me of everything she had suggested for me. She always had some amount of homework done each time we spoke and had new thoughts and ideas throughout our time working together. Most importantly, she was an excellent sounding board for this subject which is hard to talk about with anyone. The amount of time and attention that Katy provides for the modest investment she asks for her services is truly impressive. In this world of 15 minute doctor appointments which often leave me confused and feeling less than acknowledged, it was very refreshing. It is hard to find anyone who is as well-versed in this emerging take on health and wellness. I don’t know where I would be without Katy’s insights.”  –Richard, Texas, USA (age 29)

“Working with Katy over the past several months has been a wonderful experience.  I came to Katy with the goal to lose a few pounds around my middle that wouldn’t budge.  I also suffered from insomnia and it was making it difficult to function.  The only thing that the doctor had to offer was sleeping medication, which I didn’t want to take.  I had been following a clean, healthy Paleo diet for about a year, but I was still struggling with these issues and I didn’t know what else to do.  Katy was able to help me to tweak my diet and she made some lifestyle and supplement recommendations to help me balance my hormones.  It took a bit of time and patience, but I have lost the weight around my middle and I’m sleeping again!  I highly recommend working with Katy.  She is extremely knowledgeable and willing to spend a lot of time helping you to get to the root causes of your problems.”  –Charlotte, Ohio, USA (age 62)

“I’ve struggled with a variety of serious health problems for many years–rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, and migraine headaches.  I had worked with other holistic practitioners and nutritionists in the past.  They told me that I was suffering from leaky gut and candida and put me on unrealistic diets and numerous expensive supplements.  Things would get better for awhile, but then they would get worse again.  When I found Katy, I was at my wit’s end and I didn’t know what else to do.  I had been doing a lot of research and I knew that I needed to heal my digestive system, but I didn’t know how to go about that.  Katy was like a breath of fresh air after working with all of these other practitioners.  She seemed to genuinely care about helping me to reach my goals and she did it in a way that emphasized actual food and the natural healing ability of the body.  She helped me to figure out what foods contribute to my symptoms and what type of foods I should be eating.  When she made supplement recommendations, she always had a good reason for doing so and she helped me to prioritize the supplements that would be most helpful for what was going on in my body.  I’ve learned so much about how the body truly works from Katy.  Most importantly, I was able to improve my digestion and my overall health.  I no longer suffer from symptoms of fibromyalgia, migraines, or irritable bowel syndrome, as long as I don’t cheat on my diet.  The rheumatoid arthritis has improved greatly and I no longer have to take immuno-suppressant medication!  I’ve gone from taking ten medications every day down to only two!  Despite doctors telling me that diet has nothing to do with these conditions, that is clearly not the case.  I am so grateful for the services and help that Katy provided.  I only wish that I would have found her sooner!”  –Rhonda, Michigan, USA (age 41)
