"Seven years ago I was at my worst and ready to give up when I was referred to Terri Ritchie. I had tried everything- doctors, chiropractors, personal trainers, and diets- no one could help my constant pain. Due to this condition I gained a tremendous amount of weight and ended up in a wheelchair at 568 lbs. Exercising as best I could for 45 minutes a day and eating 1100-1300 calories a day, I only lost 28 lbs in a year. I met with Terri and she immediately put me on a specialized diet and a medical food. Within a month my pain was reduced and by 3 months I was pain free. She was an angel sent from God! If it had not been for her knowledge and caring attitude I may not be alive today!"

"Before I came to Advent Nutrition, I was suffering from debilitating migraines and severe asthma attacks. I met Terri Ritchie at a conference at a local church. After the conference, I called Terri’s office to make an appointment. That first appointment changed my life! She spent a great deal of time with me and seemed genuinely concerned about my health. After working with Terri, I was able to eliminate 80% of my migraines and almost all of my asthma attacks. Before working with Terri, I was on 3 different medications for my migraines, and 4 different medications for my asthma. I was even on blood pressure medication when I didn’t have blood pressure issues, to proactively prevent my migraines. I’m no longer on any medications! I feel great and my quality of life has improved so much that I can’t stop talking to people about what Terri accomplished for me."

"Terri Ritchie is a highly knowledgeable and caring nutritionist with a background in the pharmaceutical industry, which provides additional insight. She listens, and if she doesn't have an answer researches the problem until she does. She has helped my family members, many friends and my autistic son with complicated allergies, gut problems, and food sensitivities. She is my go to person for health questions and solutions with a wealth of information- a nutritionist who truly makes a difference in the lives of her clients. I highly recommend her. "

"Before I met Terri, I had struggled all my life with stomach pains which had progressively gotten worse, until I was finally diagnosed with gastroperesis. My doctor gave me two options of treatment; however, one was expensive and the other had severe side effects. Thankfully, another doctor referred me to Terri. She was very thorough in her investigation of my symptoms and concluded that my digestion issues could be drastically improved. I was immediately placed on a food program and prescribed supplements to aid my digestion and ensure that I received all of the nutrients necessary for my condition. She took the time to explain everything to me, including the biological processes that were causing me so much pain, and followed my progress closely. In time I experienced a great turnaround, feeling better than I had for years. Even though my condition is one I will have the rest of my life, through Terri’s efforts I now have the tools needed to achieve my own optimal personal health."

"I heard about Advent Nutrition from a friend who had attended a seminar given by Terri at a women's event at a local church. I originally went to her for weight control, as I had struggled with this for years. I was very impressed with Terri's knowledge of nutrition and body chemistry. What impressed me even more was her knowledge of nutritional supplements. A year after my original visit, Terri assisted me through a gluten sensitivity diagnosis. With her expertise and guidance I was able to not only make the diet change but to return my body to a state of wellness!"

"Last September, after doing all I knew to lose the weight that was making me sad and insecure (more than 90 pounds to lose), I decided to make what would be my last call: I called Terri. I was expecting just another no-calorie diet and more exercises to do. How happily wrong I was!! Besides being an unbelievable nice person, Terri knows what she does!! Now, almost 8 months after my first appointment, I am better than 6 years ago! I have lost more than 40 pounds and eat in a very healthy way. Who would have thought it would be a pleasure to eat well? I'm a different person now!! Thank you Terri!"
