I've just got to rave a bit about the nutritionist I stumbled across while searching for one who would be close to where we would be living when we moved back to the States this summer. I was lucky enough to find Cheryl Harris, who I have now learned has an amazing reputation in the Washington DC area. I've got to say it is well-deserved if my experience is anything like a normal experience. When I went for my evaluation at the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research, as soon as their nutritionist found out I had an appointment the next week to see Ms. Harris she basically said, "Cheryl is great. She'll be a huge help. I'll just give a brief overview and then you can contact me if you have further questions."
I've had two appointments and in both she offered concrete and 'do-able' recommendations in terms of how I could tweak my diet. She also told me after the second visit that she thought I had a good handle on approaching the diet...how nice to have someone finally tell me I'm doing something right! Keeping a detailed food diary helped us pinpoint that corn and legumes seem to be causing some problems and now that I've cut them out I've noticed my pain levels are starting to decrease! This after my doctors overseas totally dismissed my suggestion that further food intolerances could be an issue. Grrrr.
She's got two office locations -- one in Alexandria (Duke St) and one in Fairfax. If you do a search for Harris Whole Health you'll find her website.
If you have any specific qustions you can message me.
If You Need A Nutritionist In The Dc Area -- Cheryl Harris Is Awesome!
