Ana is my health angel! Four years ago, I suddenly started getting a very sharp pain in my belly every time I ate. It became unbearable. I was so afraid to eat that I was barely eating anything, however I was gaining weight around my midsection like I had never experienced before. My belly was huge! And my arms and legs so skinny. I couldn't understand what was going on. I found Ana through a friend of mine who swore by her! She spent 1 hour with me on the first meeting, and the consultation was free. Ana was so kind and I felt that she really cared about my health. That day she sent me off with some test kits and two weeks later, when we met again, she shared the results with me. Apparently, my GI tract was full of harmful bacteria, specially my stomach. I had the bacteria, H. Pylori, which causes ulcers. My first instinct was "Laura, run to the doctor and get antibiotics!" Ana said that was not the smartest way to go about it. "Yeah, right!" I thought. I left Ana's office very skeptical of what she told me, that this could be taken care of with a number of supplements and a proper diet designed to kill harmful bacteria and get toxins out of my body. I went to the doctor anyway and he suggested that I do an endoscopy, meanwhile I take antibiotics. I went home and thought about what Ana had explained to me and took a leap of faith with her recommendation. I followed her dietary advice and 1 week later my symptoms started to disappear. Three months later I was completely free of symptoms: excruciating pain, heartburn, bloating... I never took any medications. Thank god! Ana explained why I ended up with an ulcer in the first place and why I had been having constant throat infections, feeling low of energy, restless at night with insomnia, drowsy, and with general poor health. Apparently, it was the use of antibiotics that started this decline of health to begin with. I feel absolutely amazing now. I always say Ana Luque is my health angel :-) I still visit Ana 2 times a year to keep my health in check. As I have learned, preventing is always better than curing. And antibiotics is not always the smartest way to go.

I began reading Ana Luque's amazing book "The Yogurt Diet" when it just came out a couple of years ago, and I was astounded with her knowledge of the body and how our choices of foods affect our well being and our long term health. I am someone who had never paid attention to what I put in my mouth because I have always been thin and I do not gain weight. However, a permanent lack of energy was always with me, so after my perusal of her book, I contacted Ana and after performing a very thorough and comprehensive wellness assessment, she found that my lack of energy was caused by eating certain foods that were wrong for my genes. She designed a diet based on my genetic needs and lifestyle. The results were astounding! My energy level is great, and my overall health has improved tremendously. Now, Ana is the only health practitioner I rely on. I understand that nutrition is what the body needs to feel and look its best. Thank you, Ana!
For years I have been dealing with GI problems and health issues. None of my doctors could figure out what was wrong. I started seeing Ana Luque about one year ago. She is the only one who took the time to listen and ask me questions, like she really cared. The moment I told her my symptoms she ordered some tests. OMG! I tested positive for allergies to so many foods. My body has been poisoned for so long and it has not been absorbing the nutrients it needs. Ana quickly put me on a diet with foods and herbs to detox my body, from my liver, colon, skin, blood and all the enlarged fat cells that had been accumulating toxins for so many years. No wonder I couldn't lose weight! 11 months later I am another person!!! Happy, full of health and energy. There is still more work to do and I know Ana will be leading me the way and holding my hand to return to total health. Thank you! I recommend Ana Luque to everyone.
Ana Luque is the best nutritionist I have ever worked with! As an amateur cyclist I need to be in the best shape possible. In just three sessions Ana was able to identify what I needed, and she helped me make a few simple changes to my diet and fitness plan (adding yoga), which gave me the results i was looking for. I have lost the stubborn fat and gained more muscle doing basically the same workouts as before with my trainer. What makes Ana's work unique from other nutritionists I have worked with is her ability to match my diet to my genetic and lifestyle needs. This has made all the difference! I have been recommending her to all of my cycling buddies.
