I wish I had contacted Josh Gitalis sooner.
His knowledge, guidance, insight and specific recommendations have improved my health significantly. My Crohn’s Disease symptoms had significantly impaired my everyday activities. However, during these months working with Josh, my husband, children and friends can all see and have commented on the positive difference in my health, appearance and demeanor.
As I continue to gradually move “up the slope of health”, as Josh calls it, I have gained a confidence in my body’s ability to not only function – but heal. Thank you, Josh, for helping me on this journey. My family and I are so very grateful!
We were feeling pretty hopeless after spending 10 days in the hospital (and a total of 4 weeks missed school) with our daughter who was having continual stomach pain. After countless tests including ultrasounds, colonoscopy, endoscopy, x-rays, blood work and trips to specialists she was told that it was irritable bowel syndrome and there was really nothing we could do. We booked our first appointment with Josh and requested copies of all the tests for him to look at. Once Josh had a look at the results of her blood work, he pointed out one abnormality that had never been flagged by anyone while we were in the hospital. He immediately suggested changing a couple things with her diet & within a week symptoms were greatly diminished and over the course of the next few weeks she was completely symptom-free! The difference has been night & day and Josh has definitely become our go-to for health related help!
I am looking forward to my 70th birthday this year as I know in my heart that I will be pain free and in good health. I have been blessed in life with an incredible loving family and great friends but a lousy immune system that has plagued me with major health problems my entire life.
My doctors and the medical system have been incredible and brought me through one crisis after another, and then over a year ago I hit a perfect storm and my body went into an immune rejection again. The drugs I had been taking for years turned against the body, causing problems with the liver, pancreas, and intestines. Everyone moved fast and I was having cat scans, MRI, ultrasounds, heart catherization, blood work galore, specialists, etc, then my daughter said ” Mom we have to talk to Meghan friend Josh, maybe he can help us” . This was the best thing we did, and so easy even though we live in B.C.
By using Skype I was able to talk to Josh face to face and give him a full history and send my medical test to him. I had told my doctors about Josh and they thought it was a good idea to have someone trained in nutrition to be on my healing team, so were willing to pull any tests he needed.
Josh set up a program for me to follow with the food and supplements I needed to heal my gut and body. I am now on Phase 2 of the program of detoxifying and healing and each day is better than the day before.
A clinical nutritionalist like Josh should be the first line of defense for health, not just healing from a disease because if you can keep your gut healthy your body has a better chance of staying healthy and life is to precious to waste being sick.
Josh is so intelligent about nutrition and healing of the gut, so easy to talk to by Skype or email, and never seems to far away to answer my questions or concerns.
I am back out walking, doing yoga, gardening and enjoying sleepovers with my grandchildren. I have my life back. I am still in the process of recovery, but each day is better and the sun is shining.
The thing I know for sure is that Josh will be making a maintenance program for me when I get to that point, as I want this last period of my life to be lived with enjoyment, contentment, and in good health.
“After struggling with digestive problems for 10+ years, my problems became increasingly severe in Spring of 2011, and I was recommended Josh’s Clinical Nutrition services from a colleague. Right away I knew I would enjoy working with Josh- he is incredibly knowledgeable, thorough and easy to understand. Following his individualized protocol I was completely symptom-free within months and remain so a year later. I can’t recommend Josh enough!”
It is without reservation that I recommend and rely on the wisdom of Mr. Gitalis. Just after turning 60, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. With guidance from Josh, I embarked on a journey of active surveillance, enlisting a team of experts along the way.
After an in depth review of my records and results, and a discussion about the role supplements play in curing cancer, I received a protocol that required a change from what I was used to. But Josh explained what each supplement did and I was able to actually visualize the benefit. Combined with a healthier diet including juicing, exercise, acupuncture and the right combination of supplements, I can confirm that one year later, the cancer is being held in check. The protocol is working.
I must admit, I was a bit skeptical at first, but a year later I am actually more fit than before the diagnosis.
Josh has made a huge difference for me and would highly recommend him. If you are looking to take more control over your own health, or just want to feel better inside and out, then seeing Josh Gitalis makes a lot of sense.
“Josh’s down-to-earth teaching style provides the necessary tools for budding nutritionists to venture into the world with the knowledge, confidence and a desire to help others in their quest for healthier living.”
“Meghan and Josh hosted a really well-run retreat that provided a great balance of relaxation and learning. I came away feeling inspired to take charge of my own health and pass on the things I learned to my friends and family.”
“Just wanted to say that you did a fantastic job with the Symp I class. I think everyone appreciated the wealth of information that you imparted. I’m actually just formatting some of my notes now. They will be good reference.”
“I really enjoyed Symptomatology 1 and I’m looking forward to Symptomatology 2, although I would have hoped you’d be teaching it. I know I’m not the only one when I say; you have a really great teaching style and made the class very interesting.”
“Josh blew me away with his knowledge of most anything related to nutrition. Being a Holistic Nutrition Student, I encounter many teachers, but none as knowledgeable as Josh. There wasn’t a question that he was asked that he could not answer. He does a great job at describing things and providing an analogy that makes it easy to understand and relate to. He was also very approachable for any questions. I would recommend anyone to see Josh for their health needs.”
“Josh Gitalis is an encyclopedia of information. He is very patient and has a great knack for explaining nutritional concepts. In addition, he has a kind soul and is always putting the health of his clients, and the success of his students first. He is a pleasure to work with.”
“Josh is by far one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. His knowledge and desire to truly teach his students is second to none. He has an amazing way of breaking down complex information so that it is palatable to everyone. Josh is helpful, patient and pretty funny too. I’ll definitly be taking more classes from him in the future.”
“Josh is one of the most knowledgeable, detail oriented, organized, and patient teachers I have ever had. He is the real deal and lives what he teaches. I can not say enough good things about him and wish I had more courses with him!”
