It’s not easy to change the way we eat. And too often we’re trained to think perfection, dependence upon person, product, or dogma are requisite for success. This sets up repetitive failure and ongoing expense.

Considerable time has been taken to post a mountain of free information at this website. I also provide private consultations for those who want someone else to do the work of summarizing and customizing a healing diet. The initial consultation takes two hours and in it we review one's entire health and diet history before any dietary recommendations are made. Consultations are billed at $175/hour. Most clients live around the world so I routinely do phone and FaceTime consultations. 

Writing user-friendly books and 12 years of using an imperfect diet to reverse my own disease allow me to uniquely instruct others on how to practice a healing diet anytime, anywhere.  25 years as a Registered Dietitian have developed my capacity to help others achieve results while having fun and overcoming inevitable setbacks.  Only to the degree that my clients get remarkable and lasting results without ongoing expenses am I successful.  I utilize 35 years of personal and professional experience to create diet plans which suit lifestyle needs and motivation, thereby enhancing long-term compliance and success.  

Results and testimonials speak for themselves.

Please contact me if you’d like to schedule a private consultation.


Initial consultations require at least two hours and are billed at $175 per hour. Thus consultations generally cost $350. 90% of clients need just one consultation.  When payment is an issue, I will offer a discount for phone consultations. I accept no forms of insurance.

Most of my clients live beyond Austin so the majority of my consultations are done via phone or Facetime.  Initial consultations include review of an extensive questionnaire that’s designed to help me understand your entire health and diet history, which food patterns may be culprits, which foods are likable and missing for recovery, and how food fits into your lifestyle. Review of this questionnaire happens prior to my making any personalized dietary recommendations for you.

A two hour consultation generally includes development of a personalized plan for one person regardless of how many people participate. Please note that with more than one person in attendance a consultation often requires more time. 

Depending upon your doctor’s orders your diet plan can be complementary to or exclusive of prescription medications. Under no circumstances is a client to stop taking prescribed medications without their physician’s supervision and approval. Please inform your physician of any diet changes.

Payment is due upon completion of a consultation and can be made with check, cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diner’s Club, PayPal.  

I do not accept any form of insurance nor do I do any insurance billings.

Physician Feedback

“My patients have responded with interest and enthusiasm to Deirdre's concise book, lectures, and consultations. One such patient, with a long history of recalcitrant atopic dermatitis, is now beautifully controlled off all prescription and over-the-counter medications. Another has been adhering to the healing foods diet and has experienced a profound improvement in her psoriasis. For the motivated patient, the healing foods diet can provide a safe and effective alternative to pharmacologic therapy.”

Your Healing Diet Feedback

"I recently purchased your book and really feel that it’s the best book of its type. Other books make the prospect of an anti-inflammatory diet seem very daunting, expensive and inflexible... yours is the first that gives real-world, brand-name recommendations for on-the-go meals as well as breaking down what to look for on labels. This really speaks to my lifestyle as I simply don’t have the time to cook three meals a day.”
