“I initially met with Jackie when I was going through a very tumultuous time in my life with many changes happening all at once. I knew I needed to get a handle on my nutrition and so I reached out to her. Jackie was able to lend a guiding hand to help me have a relationship with food that had been lacking for a few months. Over the course of about 5-6 months, I was able to learn about different foods that were causing me discomfort. She helped me find a way to plan out my meals and make sure I was making good decisions when it came to my nutrition and food. Jackie worked with my ridiculous schedule of working overnights and coming up with meal planning ideas for a non-traditional lifestyle.
In the few short months that I was with Jackie, she helped me have a new outlook on food, as well as my life! She is such a powerful positive force! I don’t know where I’d be without her or maybe I’d be eating cookies and candy all of the time!
I couldn’t have done it without Jackie!”

“I had been suffering from diverticulosis for nearly 8 years when I started working with Jackie in May of 2017. I was experiencing flare ups more frequently and my gastroenterologist had recommended surgery. I did not want to have surgery and decided this was the time to get serious about diet and lifestyle changes. When I began working with her she told me I needed to make a lot of changes in my diet – more than I anticipated. However, her caring and personal nature made me comfortable with making this change. She held me accountable and encouraged me throughout – especially when times got rough. Her knowledge of this holistic approach to healing is vast and she provided many alternatives to foods I love. I’ve tried to make these changes in the past wth no success so I believe Jackie made all the difference. She’s been such a blessing to me! I feel great and know that this is something I can do for the rest of my life.”

I am so grateful for your help and guidance during my healing journey with Crohn’s disease. Without your knowledge, experience and support, I would be on life-long medication and facing the possibility of surgery.
Your cooking tips and nutritional expertise are invaluable tools that I will use for the rest of my life. But above all, your encouragement gave me the strength to battle this digestive disease holistically and patiently. I deeply thank you because I could not have managed my SCD diet without you!!”
Hugs to you,
“My visit with Jackie was life changing. She hooked me up with the right information and shared her story of how she has was able to heal herself by eating the right foods. I followed her instructions and three days later I was feeling so much better even my little aches and pains were disappearing. I could feel the inflammation leave my body. I¹ve been practicing this way of looking at foods as medicine and both my health and attitude have continued to improve. I can¹t thank Jackie enough.
Jackie is compassionate, knowledgeable and has a passion to help others and I¹ve been blessed to have her on my wellness team!”
“Before meeting with Jackie, I wasn’t eating very much. Everything seemed to bother my GI system. She helped me figure out what things I could eat and what things would help heal my system. She truly was a God send to me!”

“When I first met Jackie I was a little hopeless with my health, I was feeling sick everyday, bloated, in a bad mood and I thought I was never going to feel good.
Jackie has helped me a lot through this process, she made me believe there is a better way to eat and feel great. She’s not just really professional, she’s a really nice person, she cares about her patients.
I’m really glad I found her, she helped me feel better with myself, inside and outside.”
“In March of 2016 I started working with Jackie Caldwell to see if I could get my Ulcerative Colitis under control. I had had a colonoscopy in January and was truly in problem city. I had severe diarrhea and I was bleeding. I met with Jackie, she shared her story and with her help I started down her path. I read the book Beating the Vicious Cycle suggested by Jackie and then began following the way of eating. By June I was much better with no grain in my diet, decrease sugar and learning to cook with almond flour and honey. Today I have my life back! I no longer must wake up 2 hours before any morning activity to have enough time to go to the bathroom multiple times. I no longer look for bathrooms wherever I am and calculate how quickly I can get there if needed. I feel like the commercial for Humira. There have been side effects to this way of living.. I have lost 45 pounds and have cut my Balsalazide daily dosage. Thanks Jackie.”
“In the five months I have been seeing Jackie, she has helped me lose 21 pounds and a clothing size. She has not only supported me in being grain-free, but also dairy-free, and a few weeks ago, I decided to go vegetarian in addition. She has great ideas for what to eat and recipes to make. And if she doesn’t have an idea handy, she’ll do the research. For example, she researched non-dairy yogurts to find one that would work with all of my various issues, and she sent me a picture of what it looked like so I could easily find it at the store.
Jackie is the best coach. She is very supportive and encouraging, and she allows you to be human. If I get off track, she has a way of nudging me back that isn’t harsh or doesn’t make me feel guilty. She answers my many questions and provides me with information and resources for all of my concerns and curiosities.
I have another 30 pounds to go and am extremely confident I will get there with Jackie’s help!”
“Jackie is a supportive encouraging life coach! Always available. Responsive. “
