Testimonials:

 
The workshop was outstanding.

Melinda is an organized and thorough teacher who covers numerous topics. The information was very helpful and the retreat was thoroughly enlightening and enjoyable

— 2016, Santa Barbara

The workshop helped me to move beyond my own "I can't" thinking to all the "I can" possibilities. 

Melinda's presentations on the pathology of gluten intolerance and celiac disease, the diagnostic tests available, nutritional supplements, and dining, shopping and traveling tips are invaluable.

Melinda is compassionate, generous, fun...

“...and on top of the comprehensive, thorough, and totally reliable information”
