Individual Diet Consultations
POTS, dysautonomia, and digestion
"In addition to being an incredibly knowledgeable practitioner, Matt is also a wonderful adviser and cheerleader to his clients. I came to him for POTS, dysautonomia, and gut issues (gastroparesis) 6 months ago, and in that time, I've seen so many positive changes. My POTS symptoms no longer dictate every minute of my day, and I'm beginning to have days of normal gut function! I have more energy and I'm using it in smart, strategic ways to keep improving.
Matt is the right kind of ally to have when you are working with chronic and difficult health conditions: he is positive but practical, intelligent, and more creative than most nutritionists I've worked with. He is willing to work very closely with your goals and changing needs (because they can and should change as you progress!) and isn't interested in sticking to things that "should' work for you, but don't."
The approach I've experienced is very personalized, adaptive, and collaborative. In addition to stellar nutritional advice, he also uses helpful lifestyle changes and mindset shifts to give you the tools you need to make progress. Anyone on a difficult health journey must take responsibility for their health and do the work, but it's a comfort to have someone who is committed to making the path as easy as possible.
Matt has done research on my behalf to understand my particular challenges better, come up with new solutions and has been genuinely interested in my progress. He's easy to communicate with, and is really just a lovely human being. It has felt like he's on my team, and that alone counts for a lot. I highly recommend him!"
Migraines, low energy, and thyroid issues
"I am happy to have found Matt! With his help I have made the most progress yet in my journey back to health; and I plan to make more! I have always been active and disciplined and prided myself on my 'healthy' food and gym habits. After having children I found myself struggling with severe migraines and lack of energy; amongst a slew of other symptoms. None of which I attributed to my lean diet and strenuous workouts. I was struggling to connect the dots and wanted to heal my body - not just treat my symptoms. I had seen many doctors and functional medicine practitioners who were at a loss. Matt helped me pinpoint what I was lacking in my diet and recommended ways of eating. With minimal testing he recommended natural supplements my body specifically needed. He also suggested various lifestyle changes. All of which helped save me from the onset of a thyroid issue as well as has greatly minimized my migraines. Most of my symptoms are nearly gone and I will be forever grateful! I feel like I now have a handful of tools to keep myself healthy and that is a wonderful feeling."
Parasites, skin problems, & PMS symptoms.
I have been thinking a long time about what to write about Matthew Cress. Matthew Cress has been my champion where other medical practitioners have failed. I have turned to Matthew many times in the last three years to help me with medical conditions such as intestinal parasites, skin disorders and very poor digestion. Each time I have been met with compassion, kindness and nonjudgemental care. Matthew has helped me by being my cheerleader, my resource and I would like to say a friend as well. Whenever I have turned to Matthew for help concerning medical issues or care to improve my health, he has not only given me fully researched information. He has also referred to his extensive knowledge of the human body to give me relatable and doable changes I can make in my life to improve my health. I haven’t had to drastically change my lifestyle or diet and he has made everything accessible. He didn’t require me to do labs either. He has done everything with care, compassion and overall professionalism. I would refer everyone I know to Matthew if they are suffering from any sort of long form chronic illness to improve their day-to-day life and also make life saving changes to their overall health. Matthew has proven to me time and time again that he is on my side that he believes what I tell him and that he is dedicated to helping me create a healthier life. -Ashleigh W.

"Matthew did an excellent job. He delivered the project on time and went well beyond our expectations for the quality and depth of the project. I can't stress highly enough the QUALITY of his work--that's one thing you're never quite sure of until your freelancer delivers your completed job to you, and you will not be disappointed with what he delivers."
