Fertility Testimonials

I was able to create a supplement regimen that addressed my nutrient deficiencies and prepared me for pregnancy. Our protocol helped to regulate my sleep. You were able to make recommendations about which exercises would be best for me and my goals, which was very important to me.

You diagnosed my Hashimoto’s, which was a big missing puzzle piece in my fertility, and you helped me create a really doable protocol that addressed my Hashimoto’s (beyond just taking a pill).

And most importantly, I was able to have a successful first round of IVF (successful egg retrieval followed by pregnancy) with your help!

I think you and your services are amazing. You are so smart and very thorough in your recommendations. I appreciated that everything you recommended was evidence-based and you also provided other resources that were useful to me (books, podcasts, studies).  

I cannot speak more highly of your services, which is why I have recommended numerous friends also come to see you. So grateful to have found you!

PCOS Testimonials

Melissa’s sense of humor and attendance to both the function and pleasure of food make her a really good match for me. She is encouraging and supportive and never pushes me to eat foods that don’t appeal to me.

She’s really attentive to information from my other providers and explains what’s going on in my body in ways that I get. Her focus on adding in nutrients and functional foods rather than cutting out enjoyable things makes me feel like nothing is off-limits, and there’s no desire to rebel!

One of Melissa’s recommendations was that I make sure to incorporate pleasurable foods too. It really helped me recognize that enjoying what I eat is essential to being able to commit to a new way of eating.

Melissa is fantastic to work with. I was having some issue with my skin and my digestive system and she explained to me very clearly what she felt the issues were.

She has so much knowledge and is so patient and compassionate and that really helped as I was taking in all of this new information.

I started on a new diet and added in some supplements she recommended and within a week, I was feeling so much better and my most annoying symptoms had subsided.

Prior to working with you, I was still struggling with mental fog, hormone imbalance issues in the form of emotional instability and hadn’t reached another plateau in energy.

Since working with you, I have been able to utilize nutrition and as needed supplementation to support my health. I’ve been able to have a cycle, without metformin! My energy and mental clarity has increased. My emotional stability has also returned!

Keep at it girl, your service is vital!! Very much appreciate the tools you use to get a clear and optimal living spectrum of your clients. Extremely appreciate your ability to work with me long distance.

I have been working with Melissa for about six months and I have seen quite the transformation. Melissa helped me shift my eating habits to include more protein and incorporate foods and vitamins that help balance my hormones.

I have lost about 14 pounds since I started working with her.

Melissa’s approach helped me understand that I didn’t need to diet and I didn’t need to cut out “unhealthy” foods.

She is a kind and caring dietitian and is a dream to work with!

Hormone Testimonials

In working with Melissa at Avocado Grove, I have been able to discuss my issues with someone who thinks about health from a wholistic perspective. This has really helped in that Melissa considers the interplay of nutrition and health and has been able to make recommendations to me that no one ever has before. I have been on a number of supplements that Melissa recommended – no change in diet, no change in exercise and have seen an improvement in my mental well-being and ability to manage stress. I have also seen small, incremental changes in weight loss over a period of time and have had some improvement in period symptoms.

I highly recommend working with Melissa. I’ve been very impressed with her breadth of knowledge (and I have a PhD in Biochemistry!) and also how she tailors her recommendations to what she knows I can actually incorporate into my daily routine.

Before working together, I was struggling with weight loss resistance, extreme fatigue, brain fog, sluggish thyroid, and imbalanced hormones. I was also struggling with binge eating. I had tried so many different supplements and blindly followed diet advice before working together.

Working together taught me so much about combining foods for blood sugar balance and finding a healthy range of food options, including healthy treats. I found what foods really work for my body, healed a lot of inflammation, and I found more emotional balance through letting go of yo-yo dieting and over-exercising. I feel like I got a full-on nutrition education that went as deep as interpreting raw data from genetic testing.

I worked with Avocado Grove and Nutrition for four months and I am so grateful to have found a dietitian that is qualified and knows about women’s health. She is flexible in her recommendations, encouraging in her approach, and understands what it’s like to be a busy woman trying to eat healthier.

She uses a holistic approach, and she never tells you certain foods are bad for you, she just teaches you how to balance them with protein or fiber so it’s better for your body. I’ve never seen a dietitian before, and she has set the bar very high.

I can’t say enough great things about Melissa. I had developed some unhealthy eating habits since becoming a mother and working from home. Melissa helped me zero in on what needed to change and gave me practical ways to make those changes. Eating can be a complicated thing, and Melissa acts like a nutrition ninja, providing insight and solutions from all angles.

Working with her is like having a medical expert/detective/therapist/life coach on your side. Most importantly, she’s non-judgmental, empathetic, and supportive. After working with her closely, I feel that her expertise has had a positive long-term effect on me and things she suggested to me have really stuck. If you’re ready to make some changes, she’s the person to help you do it.
