"Valerie provided concise pragmatic nutritional information on FODMAPS and clarified the grey areas around celiac testing, clearly laying out the options. She is not dogmatic but flexible and a good listener. Her consultations cleared out some of the fog in my mind with respect to Celiac Disease and helped me understand where I needed to go from here."

"Valerie counseled our family regarding how to start the Low FODMAP Diet for our 15 year old daughter with IBS and gluten intolerance. She was very knowledgeable about the diet and how to implement it. She was also great at following up with us and providing ongoing support." (EH - Carmel)
I found Valerie and Blue Tree Nutrition on Kate Scarlata's website. I had finally decided to give the low FODMAP diet a chance and knew I needed a professional to guide me if I wanted to be successful. Valerie has a wealth of knowledge and experience plus she is so easy to talk to. Valerie outlined the whole diet, helped me focus on what I could eat instead of the long list of food I couldn't eat, gave me snack ideas, provided recommendations for surviving work travel, and tips to alleviate my constipation.
She has been available to me throughout my journey. She has checked on bread for me...she even called the bakery to see if their sourdough was low FODMAP safe (fermenting process).
I am a true believer that you need a support network to thrive on a low FODMAP diet (or modified low FODMAP diet). Call Valerie if you live in Indiana. (RA-former Indianapolis resident, now Atlanta)
