"Meeting Nori has been a blessing to me.
For 18 years I have been suffering from severe acid reflux, irritable bowel, and diabetes.
My doctors prescribed 5-6 medications to take daily. I underwent a serious and difficult surgery. But nothing helped.
My constant pain and discomfort created enormous limitations, like not being able to travel. This made me depressed. I also feared further medical diagnosis would occur as a result of these complications. A friend referred me to Nori, a nutritionist who had helped her in the past.
Her professional analysis and guidance has been spot on. She identified foods I am allergic to and custom made a food plan to follow. She taught me how to change my shopping and eating habits. Her support and guidance have been extremely helpful towards me successfully changing my diet.
Much to my surprise, I started feeling better in as little as 1 week. Since I have been under Nori's care, my symptoms have disappeared. I have not needed to take some medications I was taking for so long and feel so much better that it has given me a new lease on life.
I was able to go on a cruise having the ability to request a different diet than what was offered to the other passengers. I was able to fly and stay with friends advising them of my dietary options which were easy to accommodate. I am able to go out with friends and family to restaurants but still stay on my meal plan.
Since I have been under Nori's guidance I have lost a significant amount of weight which has made it much easier for me to get around. And my A1C markers have improved. My doctor has been very pleased with the improvements in my health and asked me for Nori's name and website.
I cannot thank Nori enough for giving me a second chance to enjoy life."
"Nori is the most knowledgable nutritionist I have ever met. She brought new light to understanding how my adrenal glands could function better, as well as plenty of ideas of new foods to eat to help heal them. Nori has kept me inspired about food and health, and I highly recommend seeing her for any health issue!"

"I had stomach problems for 18 years. I was always fatigued and spent way too much time in the bathroom. The doctors at Kaiser did their usual tests, found nothing, and diagnosed me with irritable bowel syndrome. From then on they didn’t try to figure out why I wasn’t feeling well— it was just something I had to live with. I then saw Nori. After a few tests, a few herbal medicines, and a different diet, I was doing great. Making the changes was not easy, but the results were worth it."

"I first met Nori in 2008 while enrolled at Bauman College where she's an instructor. Although she has an in-depth understanding of human physiology, Nori has a special knack for explaining complex health topics like detoxification or immunity in simple terminology that just about anyone can grasp. She is a highly skilled presenter and knows how to engage her audience by weaving in a touch of humor into what might otherwise be another cut and dry health talk. After Nori impressed me with her breadth of knowledge in all things health-related, my husband and I hired her for private consultations. She really took the time to get to the root cause of our health issues and helped my husband identify food allergies that not even his doctor knew were there. Nori provided us with exactly what we were looking for: personalized care plans and an unabated commitment to helping us attain our health goals."

"I highly recommend Nori as a nutritionist.
I find her to be more knowledgeable and passionate about health, body function, and supplements, than anyone else I have ever met. I have been both her student and client and have greatly benefited from my time with her.
I have suffered from persistent and mysterious (to my primary care physician) digestion related issues. Nori has helped me to better understand my body, and worked with me on a variety of supportive interventions. I leave my times with her feeling more empowered, hopeful and healthy."
"Nori transformed my life! After having my second child at the age of 31, I decided that I needed help from a nutritionist in an effort to be healthier and increase my energy. I reached out to Nori, who in turn transformed my life! I have had asthma since I was an infant, was always on antibiotics as a child, and have struggled with hypothyroidism since my early 20's. Nori helped me see how childhood illnesses, nutritional habits and stress affected my health and energy levels. Thanks to Nori, I have lost about 30 pounds, exude a healthy glow, have the energy levels to keep up with my two children, and am enjoying researching the resources she has directed me to in the field of holistic health. Everyone keeps asking me "what's your secret to looking and feeling so great?" I am happy to say that all I have learned from Nori and the resources she has provided me are now being extended into many of the people I know! She has not only provided me with the tools for healthier living, but has inspired many people that she doesn't even know!"
"Nori was better informed and more helpful than any doctor I've seen. After a ten-year quest to understand my mysterious chronic illness for which doctors were of little help, I sought Nori's advice on optimizing my costly and time-consuming regime of supplements and health foods. Using questionnaires and a lab test, she advised me on the key nutrients I needed, providing solid answers to the various questions I'd had during years of self-study. I was happily surprised at the depth and breadth of her knowledge. Nori was better informed and more helpful than any doctor I've seen. She steered me to some reading on health issues including chronic mercury poisoning -- an issue I'd previously discounted per conventional medicine. A particular lab test (which my doctors had never suggested) confirmed late-stage chronic mercury poisoning. Armed with this knowledge, I had my dental amalgams removed and found a specialist to help me chelate my mercury burden safely over several years. Now six months into this treatment, I feel much better and expect a full recovery -- thanks to Nori."
