"The tests and concrete numbers put forth gave me the sense of confidence in Annika’s expertise that I felt missing in other treatment facilities."
"It wasn’t easy, but it wasn’t impossible. And after two failures with other nutritionists, I really thought it couldn’t be done. Thanks for persisting with me."
"If not for the use of Metabolic Testing and Body Composition Analysis approach to compel our daughter to persevere, she would not be completely healed, and instead prone to chronic anorexia."
"These were the first tests that ever indicated that there was something wrong. My bloodwork was always normal despite that I might purge as many as ten times per day."
"Both the Body Composition Analysis and the Metabolic Test made a world of difference in the perception of my body and my health. Looking at a number on a scale can only indicate so much about how your body is operating.
What I didn’t know was that my hunger was so silent that eating according to my hunger meant eating well beneath my needs. I now eat without fear or anxiety because I know if my body is hungry, it needs energy, and it’s my job to respond.
No matter how incredibly little I ate, down to 1000 kcal/day, I was still gaining weight. Once I understood what was happening to my body as a result of years of restricting, my motivation became one of health. I wanted to be the strongest person I could be."
