Testimonials

S.C.
POTOMAC FALLS

In January 1990 I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. Over the course of 18 years I was hospitalized 5 times and spent long periods of time on Prednisone. In addition to coming to terms with my chronic medical condition, my life was also severely impacted by the physical and mental side effects of taking the steroids. My quality of life was “tolerable” … some days better, some days worse.

In 2008 I was introduced to Teri Cochrane and my life was dramatically changed. She pinpointed numerous food sensitivities, gave me guidance, knowledge & resources, and guided me through a life-changing experience.

Within months on her program, I was able to stop taking Prednisone, in consultation with and a recommendation of my doctor, without any re-occurrence of colitis symptoms. The biggest surprise (as a result of my new food options) was easily losing 50 pounds.

My quality of life is now “outstanding”. I wish I had found Teri 18 years ago!

My experience with Teri Cochrane and Healing Paths has been one of the best roads my life has taken. I have been a client for over one year and have made major strides in my overall health and wellbeing.

Teri is one of the most knowledgeable and helpful experts in her field and I have recommended her and her organization to several of my friends and co-workers. Teri has gone a very long way out of her way to help on all levels. I wish to someday give back to her what she has given to me.”

I recently saw my doctor for a routine checkup. I was shocked and unprepared when he called a few days later to say “You have diabetes.” He told me to “Lose weight, control what you eat and exercise.” Unsure of how to accomplish all this, I was referred to Teri Cochrane.

Teri created a plan to balance my PH levels, a weekly menu plan to support my condition and a gentle exercise plan along with recommended supplements. Teri made it comfortable for me to open up and ask questions. After four months, my lab results are almost flawless: my glucose level is normal, my cholesterol level dropped 60 points and my blood pressure is normal for the first time in years. Also, I’ve lost over 40 pounds. My doctor was amazed and asked me how I accomplished all this. I simply gave him Teri’s business card.

When you are ready for answers; when you are ready to take an active role in your wellbeing; you are ready for healing at Teri Cochrane — Beyond Nutrition. My 11-year-old daughter’s health was compromised on many levels: asthma, glucose problems, dizziness, and fatigue. Carefree childhood was slipping away. The school office called every day for me to pick her up. Teri patiently worked with us on all of our health issues.

Teri takes the time to address the cause, not just the symptoms, of a medical issue-a refreshing phenomenon from our “drive by” medical practices. Our whole family has benefited from working with Teri. My daughter is now free of her asthma medications. Now the only time I hear from the office is when they tell me how healthy she looks. We have also lowered our liver enzymes and cholesterol levels.

Our Doctors expected none of these results. Teri’s extensive knowledge of the body’s systems and how to support them to attain maximum health, her experience and intuitiveness set her apart from others in the healing fields. It is a rare and empowering gift.

The moment I met Teri, her warmth and positive energy made me instantly comfortable. She asked all the right questions and actually listened to me! I had been to many doctors about my stomach pains and asked them if a change in my diet could improve my condition. They scoffed at this statement and prescribed more antibiotics. After about a year and a half of antibiotics and doctors who didn’t listen to me, my friend recommended that I go to her nutritionist.

Teri was able to completely rebalance my stomach in about 2 months and improve my overall health for the rest of my life. Her ability to use holistic methods to improve a person’s complete wellbeing is amazing. I have referred many of my friends to her and I am so thankful that I am feeling better thanks to Teri!

I have suffered for many years with digestive disorders – first diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and then Crohn’s disease. I lost control of my health along the way, but Teri came into my life and helped show me the path to wellness. Through muscle testing we found the weakness of my body and the foods that were disruptive to my system. She designed a nutritional plan and provided the right supplements to strengthen, energize and relieve my symptoms.

She listened carefully to how I was feeling as a person and she provided affirmations that fed my spirit. She gave me the tools to feel in control of my life and wellbeing again.

Teri Cochrane saved my life. I am the father of two young kids. I had no energy and had lost 35 pounds when I met Teri. I couldn't walk up the stairs at my house. I am happy to report after just a few weeks of seeing her I was back to my old self, gaining weight and snowboarding with my kids. Thank you for everything. You are my hero.

After a nine year illness consumed with visits and consults at Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins, Cleveland Clinic, NIH and countless doctors, our daughter was healed by Teri Cochrane. Her practice of nutritional and holistic healing is a legacy of genius for us all! It will change your life, health, and approach to living. As a side note, I must also share that I was misdiagnosed with an incurable illness and brought back to health again when the Wildatarian Diet and approach rid my body of the toxins, tumors, pain and brain fog brought on by food and environmental ills. I'll just say "you are welcome" to all who heed my advice. Good luck on your journey to wellness!

I was looking to make a change with my food choices. I have meal prepped for over 15 years... heavily focused on chicken. Recently my body, mostly my gut... is out of sorts. After reading and learning so much about gut biome, amyloids, protein, fat and sulfur, poor FDA standards, etc, my eyes have been opened! I will never eat chicken again! Thank you Teri Cochrane for taking me on a new, potentially lifesaving, journey.

I have been a client of Teri's after seeing over 100 practitioners dealing with multiple health issues. She is the real deal. Teri is a gifted nutritionist. A caring and compassionate human being. A health and truth seeker. An integrative detective. Solution driven. Angel on earth. Inspiring, encouraging soul. Her light shines brightly. I have been blessed by her work. I love her saying that "nothing is impossible." She is an amazing practitioner - unique, one of a kind, who seeks to looks outside the box and really help people where others haven't been able to.

Teri is a blessing for me and my family. She saved my daughter’s life. After battling Lyme and losing 50 lbs, and not being able to eat, taking her to many doctors and hospitals and finding no answers or help.
I was referred to Teri, and after one week of treatment, my daughter started getting better and now she is doing wonderfully! Teri also helped my husband and I. I had been dealing with Trigeminal Neuralgia for many many years, and taking a lot of medicine. Teri is helping me reduce medications and become more active. I have referred more than 20 family members and friends and everybody is so happy and healthy thanks to Teri and her team! To call her a miracle worker would be an understatement. We love you Teri!

Teri's Wildatarian program has been life changing for me! I'm 60 years old and have been seeking answers to my digestive issues most of my adult life and this program is giving me answers when nothing else ever has. I used to love to cook, and then food became my enemy, now food is my medicine again. I'm so grateful to have found Teri and her Wildatarian program!

I can’t thank you enough Teri for helping me regain my health. I was so unwell for so long, and no one in the medical community could tell me why. After implementing your recommendations, I feel like myself again.

It was your compassion, guidance, and advice that has lead me into the direction of health and wellness. I am so thankful for meeting you, Teri Cochrane, and for you putting me on the healing path.

Teri helped me look and feel better a million fold because she meticulously analyzed my goals and habits, and then built a more effective, healthier way for my body to actually start functioning.
It has been such an enjoyable adventure losing 18 lbs and gaining 5 lbs of lean muscle, having healthy hair and skin, never suffering energy ups and downs throughout my day, not having to worry about my next migraine attack, getting all amazing medical results from cholesterol to glucose levels, and just being in my best health in my entire lifetime.

Teri’s approach works because she has a keen sense for assessing and addressing the things that stop us from reaching our health goals. She has revolutionized my relationship with food and my body.

Teri made a huge difference in my life. I was not able to get a good night's rest since high school. I had seen numerous doctors who really could not help. The sleep meds did not keep me sleeping through the whole night.

But after one visit to Teri, my sleep issue is cured. The natural supplements do wonders. I have been able to get eight hours sleep if I desire. This has made a huge difference in the quality of my life. I can think more clearly and be more present. I also appreciate her holistic approach -treating the whole body and other health issues that maybe related to sleep and overall well being. I highly recommend her.

When I met with Teri Cochrane, my A1C was 10.5 (very high), I was taking large amounts of insulin, I weighed in at 258 lbs and I felt as if I was the unhealthiest I have ever been. It wasn’t until I started on the nutrition diet that Teri gave me where I started to feel I had my diabetes under control.

My insulin dosages have dropped over 50%. I am the healthiest and happiest I have been since I was diagnosed with diabetes. I have way more energy during the day. My eating habits have drastically changed. Teri Cochrane has changed my life for the better.

Today, I put a shirt on that I haven’t been able to wear for a year. And I had a great breakfast and I feel good. It is a bit of a miracle. But what I can say for sure is it wasn’t a miracle. It was common sense biology, science, sub-conscious work, cosmic truth, DNA and a little bit of discipline, but not much. It’s been easy.

It is the single best thing I have ever done for myself since I got sober 28 ¾ years ago!

Erin was diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) as a Junior in High School. She was extremely sick.

With the continued support of Teri’s care as well as her Lyme doctor, Erin was able to graduate from High School and is now a freshmen at Virginia Tech. We believe that the intervention of nutritional care along with her medical treatments made a tremendous difference in allowing her to complete school and graduate on-time. We are grateful for finding Teri and her practice.

Email Responses

  • One email response is provided free of charge between visits. Please allow 72 hours for a response.

Virtual Consultations & Muscle Testing by Proxy

Applied kinesiology, also known as muscle testing, measures closed-circuit electrical signals as the body responds to different stimuli, like foods, molds, hormones, and pathogens, etc. At its core, this method is predicated upon receiving information from the Biofield – the quantum field that surrounds every living thing, including our bodies.

For distance consultations, where muscle testing by proxy is requested, a Nutritional Associate will work in tandem with the practitioner to assimilate your field with their own, using Biofield principles. This will allow the practitioner to receive information about your body’s condition and needs with the NA acting as a real-time proxy.

We have found this method to be highly effective, and just as robust as our in-person practice, allowing us to approach any health condition with hyper-granularity and real-time feedback from your body.

If you are scheduling a virtual consultation and want to avail yourself of proxy muscle testing, please request a proxy at the time of scheduling.
