I couldn’t sleep, had horrendous monthly cycle effects that were debilitating, addicted to Pepsi, a ridiculous perfectionist, and was dealing with neurological issues I had had for a few years. My body does not do well with modern medication, so I was willing to try any means necessary. I kid you not, within a month of doing exactly as Jennie laid out for me (I am a rule follower and am sure I annoyed her with a thousand texts asking if this or that food followed the rule of law), I felt like a completely different person. It motivated me to keep going. Words cannot express how grateful I am to her. Ask anybody who knows me and they’ll tell you what a gem she is... or they’ll tell you how annoying I am talking about how great she is. 🤷‍♀️ Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

She doesn’t claim to have the answer to make our sin-tattered bodies new and whole.... only Jesus can do that. She uses her God-given knowledge and prayer to help these sin-tattered bodies function to the best of their ability in this fallen world, so that we can more effectively proclaim “To you who boast tomorrows gain, tell me what is your life? A mist that vanishes at dawn, ALL GLORY BE TO CHRIST!”

Over the last few years I have struggled with resistant weight loss, lack of energy and headaches.  I was addicted to coffee and "needed" it to get me through the day.  After working with Jennifer and following a customized plan she made for me that included recipes, workouts, supplements and times of rest,  my body started to change. In January I joined her Reset group.  I loved the daily plans and the encouragement of being on a plan with others! Working with Jennifer has truly been life changing. I have lost weight, have even energy all day and although i enjoy a cup of coffee i don't depend and "need" it like i used to!

At the end of November 2017, I saw a post on Instagram about a consultation with Reformed Metabolics. I had been going to various doctors convinced that my hormones were out of whack and kept getting the same answers: “according to your labs, you are good”; “you are still cycling regularly so there is nothing wrong”;  “try taking Ibuprofen to help with your symptoms at the onset of your cycle for 5 days”.  The bottom line for me was that I wanted to feel better so I booked the appointment with Jennifer. By the end of the first week (after the 4ish days of detox from sugar, bad carbs, wine, etc.) following a dietary protocol designed for me, I was feeling better-more energy, solid poop {can I get an amen?}, satisfied nutritionally and beginning to learn the true definition of rest. I’m still working on the rest thing but can honestly say that I have never felt better. My symptoms of cramping, moodiness, lethargy, cravings and more have altogether vanished. I can honestly say that I feel better beyond what I had hoped for and have gained a dear friend in Jennifer as an added bonus. I have learned how to care for myself and my family nutritionally and am thankful God crossed my path with Reformed Metabolics.

I just wanted to let you know that I’ve continued on with the reset even though it ended. I’m feeling so good and have so much energy. I’m thankful for all the added bonuses Im seeing. I’ve lost 23 pounds, my pelvic pain is very minimal, I’m sleeping great! The first picture is 3 days before the reset. The second is a few days ago. Such a difference.

You truly have been such a blessing to me and I’m so thankful Anna told me about you and all of your knowledge with women’s health. I could literally talk to you for hours about all of the struggles I’ve had with hormones, endometriosis, extreme pelvic pain, fibroids, cysts, multiple surgeries, having an ovary removed, the list goes on. For the most part, my symptoms have either subsided or are very minimal.

For the last several years I struggled with just not feeling quite right in terms of my health. I've had a laundry list of symptoms that included daily headaches, monthly yeast infections, periods that would last for 15+ days, fatigue, bloating, hair loss, anemia, constipation, and itchy skin that would not stop itching until I literally drew blood. I ended up having a hysterectomy last year and had I found Jennifer sooner I might still have a uterus. (Not that I miss those periods though!)

After doing a lot of my own research I knew it had to be something I was putting into my own body but had no idea how or where to start to figure out what it was. So I went to see my primary care physician who would just wash over these issues with one explanation after another including saying "some people are just prone to it" and "you should eat completely vegan". Well, I refuse to believe that and decided to go another route.  So thankful I did.

My journey with Jennifer Woodward begins here. After hearing great things from a friend of mine who had been seeing Jennifer with great success I knew I had to try. I scheduled my first appointment with her and was at immediately blown away by her immense knowledge of health and the human body. She discussed with me at length my symptoms and laid out her amazing plan to get me back up to par!

After the first month on the new diet plan she made for me, I already felt 100% better. Now this diet is NOT for the faint at heart. I was pretty devastated when it did not include cake and cookies. And, after a bit of a mourning phase it was so worth it.

So worth it in fact that when month 2 came along and I got to add in a couple new foods, I was very hesitant! I had a good thing going and had come so far in terms mentally adjusting to my new way of life, I didn't want to screw it up! In addition to feeling better and almost all my symptoms resolving within just those 30 days I also did not get my monthly yeast infection! 

During this time we also conducted a food sensitivities test to see exactly what my body was reacting to. It was very enlightening! A few of the foods I could completely understand because I had issues with them the minute I would consume them. However, one in particular I never would have thought twice about. Soy. If you have ever read an ingredients label on a food product you probably know that soy is in EVERYTHING! So everything (or close to it) that I was eating before all this was messing me up! 

I went back and saw Jennifer for the final time, with nothing but rainbows and sunshine on my wellness path! Together we had broken the ugly downward cycle my body was going through. I am so happy to report that today, almost 8 months later, I have still yet to have an yeast infection (knock on wood) and am still feeling better everyday! Jennifer is not just an amazing dietitian but I like to think we became friends in the process. Her encouragement and excitement at my progress kept me motivated to stay on track! I will be forever grateful!

My hormones were all over the place with hormonal migraines and very bad ovary pains. After an ultrasound and CT scan, Pelvic Congestion Syndrome (varicose veins on my left ovary) is thought to be the issue. Like varicose veins in the legs, as hormones fluctuate, the pain gets better or worse. Mine continued to be horribly painful for weeks at a time.

My hope was that I would be able to manage the pain through a change in diet and intentional eating allowing my hormones to reset and level out to levels that would decrease the pain and eleviate headaches if possible.

Taking coffee out of my diet completely was my biggest issue. I thought I woluld have to have it to keep up with my busy lifestyle. Turns out I don't actually need it! I feel like I have more energy now than when I was drinking coffee. Who knew?

After a couple of weeks, I would notice an occasional slight pain in my ovary but not nearly the amount I was having before. My energy levels are through the roof and I haven't had a migraine.

Jennifer's passion for women's health is contagious and she genuinely wants every woman to feel their best. She was attentive to my specific problems and worked with me on each one to help me with a solution to each concern. She was quick to help and very supportive of my individual concerns.

I can't thank you enough Jennifer for giving us the tools and setting us up for success in this 28 day hormonal reset. This exceeded my expectations far beyond what I hoped for. The meal planning and recipes were a huge benefit for me and my busy family. My husband and 3 children loved each of the meals and were excited for dinner every night. I too was excited as the meals were laid out before us and a grocery list had been provided. After 28 days, I now know how to fuel my body the way it was meant to be fueled and how it should perform. I hope many other woman take advantage of your knowledge and passion so they too can feel their best. The support has been phenomenal and I can't thank you enough!
