“Last March was a difficult time. My body had gotten extremely worn out from the long term antibiotic use needed for healing from Lyme disease combined with the stress of running a busy hotel in a ski resort community during the holidays. So much so that my husband needed to assist me with walking. Lynn to the rescue. I had been trying to get myself on a gluten and dairy free diet to decrease inflammation but I felt so restricted with my food choices that it just wasn’t happening. Through her kindness, loving support, and awesome knowledge she helped discover how to heal my leaky gut, find new foods to finally commit to being gluten and dairy free, and learn a bag full of new tools to detox and cleanse. I’m still in the process of healing from Lyme as it is quite the journey but my body has now gained the strength to continue fighting. Thank you Lynn!”

“For a few years I was not sleeping at night and dealing with server hot flashes and trying to deal with all of this on my own,I was so focused on my thyroid but was getting no where,  I was told about Lynn so I set up an appointment and went to see her and we did some hormone testing, and found I was very fatigue with my adrenals and other hormones, I stopped everything I was doing,  Lynn  is very experienced and knowledgable, She put me on herbs and vitamins and my life began to change and I am sleeping and feeling so much better, I am excited because I am on the road to recovery. Thank you Lynn” – Patricia

“Not only does Lynn have extensive knowledge, her passions and her heart are invested in Advocate for Healing.  Her faith and hope in our abilities to heal has been my biggest encouragement and I would recommend to anyone her balanced approach on health” – Tathiana

“I went to Lynn at Advocates for Healing for help with hormonal problems.  The mainstream medical system told me I needed to just deal with the symptoms – difficulty falling and staying asleep, hot flashes and mood imbalance.  Lynn changed my life.  With coaching from Lynn I was able to naturally get my body back in balance.  I feel like myself again.  Thank you Lynn!’ – Annie

 “Lynn always has a positive outlook and helps you see your healing potential.” – Karin

…With your experience and the proper tests you requested we were able to address the areas of concern which not only help me feel better but stop the way I had been feeling for so long…”- Wendi

“…my (weight) fluctuation has drastically decreased”…”Now I stay at a solid 115, but lost a lot of ‘bloat’ and have had more energy and motivation to work out even more”

“…my energy level has been very balanced. My digestive system has become balanced, my stomach is flatter than it has been for quite some time, I am satisfied after eating a complete meal, I sleep soundly.”

“She [Lynn] is very informative and has helped me to understand and the best ways to address health and wellness options for our family.”

“I lost about 20lbs without really trying, which was a big bonus, and I’ve kept it off by going back and forth between eating as I should and having “treats”.

“Wow, what a difference! After 2+ years of nausea, vomiting, exhaustion, and frustration with specialists telling me ‘It’s probably just a virus’, I finally had some answers! Lynn at Advocate for Healing was able to find and address the underlying causes to my symptoms. She explained everything thoroughly in language that I understood, which was not only helpful, but so validating. After just a couple of months of mild diet adjustment, vitamin and hormone supplements, I feel like a completely different person. The difference in my energy level is amazing! Every symptom that plagued me has been dramatically reduced, if not eliminated entirely. I am so grateful to Lynn; her knowledge, expertise, and kindness have given me my life and my health back!

Thanks again,

“I will be eternally grateful to Lynn Alteri-Need for helping my 16 year old daughter S. to regain her health. After many years of suffering from frequent stomach and body aches, nausea and vomiting, and alopecia an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss, she is in recovery and healing from the years of abuse to her system caused by Gluten. After several years of doctor visits, extensive tests, and lab work with specialists, who by the way were unable to clearly identify the cause of her symptoms and labeled her sickness as Irritable Bowel Syndrome/Abdominal Migraines, and prescribed medications that made her sleep 20 hours a day, I would try anything to help her quality of life. I had heard about a Nutritionist in town who could possibly help my daughter through an alternative approach based on diet and body system analysis. From our first meeting Lynn was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about her work. It was exciting! As she explained the process so we could understand and recommended a course of action to identify the cause of my daughter’s symptoms, which were an elimination diet and several specialized labs, I finally had some hope that she could heal from this terrible cycle of pain and exhaustion! We started with an elimination diet and quickly found out it was Gluten, so simple you would think but unfortunately my daughters diet consisted of almost all Gluten and she was a picky eater so it was not easy to get her on board at first. After finally starting to eliminate Gluten and a regime of supplements she was feeling less sick and more energized! She is on her way to healing and it will be a process but it’s working and we will be forever grateful to Lynn for sharing her knowledge with us! ”
S. is finally free to enjoy her teenage life!

“I would like to thank you for your knowledge and support with my health. As you know I was diagnosed with Ehler’s Danlos Syndrome in 2006. I had been feeling sick for about 3 + years post a traumatic surgery and very sick for the past year not knowing specifically why. With your experience and the proper tests you requested we were able to address the areas of concern which not only help me feel better but stop the way I had been feeling for so long. After seeing the lab results in front of me I had a sense of validation that allowed me to make changes in my diet and add the proper supplements for my individual needs. Now I am able to address my families needs and help prevent my children from dealing with similar issue in the future. My whole family thanks you again for your expertise in this area. Very truly yours, Wendi Goodwin “
