I've taken a number of online courses and Josh's courses surpass them in knowledge, delivery and supported documentation. His course provided up-to-date information that I can use with my current clients and workshop topics. Thank you for providing excellent information.

"Josh, you are such an amazing teacher! Your ability to clearly explain and simplify technical pieces is amazing. Working through your courses, I can always count on my questions being answered on the next slide!"

Julia Kirouac

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!

Barbara Baumann

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 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 always puts the health of his clients and the success of his students first. He is a pleasure to work with."

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.

Kristin Rugg Dovbniak

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!

Laurie Johnson

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 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!

Josh sheds light on how you got to where you are in a way that is both informative and transformational. His simple explanations make your health easy to understand, and the knowledge gained leads to changes you truly believe in.

Daniel Iwasa-Madge

"I already have food allergies, so I was nervous about cutting more out of my diet. Josh convinced me that getting gluten and dairy out of my diet would help, and he was right — I’ve never felt better. It’s been a challenge, but he’s been there with me every step of the way."

Linda Freed

"I’m excited to share with you that I was at my doctor last week and my blood pressure was in the optimal range!!!! Truly remarkable. Walking the dogs for the past 18 months, plus all the other lifestyle changes due to guidance from you and Meghan, has made a huge change. I’ve been on blood pressure meds for 10 years at least, maybe longer. This is the first change in all that time. Thank you, thank you!"

Nickie Jones

"Josh was wonderful! He is so knowledgeable and informative. He explains things in a way that makes so much sense and makes you want to change and trust him. You feel like he cares and wants you to feel and be your healthiest. Since I started following Josh’s program my headaches have diminished, and my demyelination lesions have been halted. Thank you, Josh! You have changed my life."

Meg Bradbury

Your suggestions have been very helpful. Following through on your recommendations has been something of a game-changer.

Sheri Swan

The recognition of low thyroid, the focused supplements and the nutrition protocols you’ve had me on, as well as the educational information you’ve provided, have made such a huge difference and I can’t thank you enough. It actually makes me teary!

Jessica Yeager

Josh is truly one of a kind. Words cannot begin to describe how grateful I am to have him on my health team, serving as the main coach! Every day is better than the last because with Josh’s guidance, I am now steadily moving up the slope of health. Over the years I have seen many doctors and other alternative health practitioners. None have come close to his level of expertise. Not only does he understand the body as a whole and how everything functions together, enabling him to create incredibly healing protocols; he is also an amazing teacher, educating and empowering you along the way. He makes understanding why the body is out of balance, and how he is going to help bring it back to balance super easy, especially with his great analogies!

What I love most about working with Josh is that he uses a whole body approach to healing, addressing both the mind and body, and integrating high quality nutrition as part of his protocols. Plus his level of support is unrivaled. He consistently follows up to assess how things are going and addresses any new concerns. He genuinely cares about you and your success.

Josh’s thorough understanding of the whole body, dedication to his clients, and passion for optimal health literally make him the best of the best. If you are looking to take your health to a new level, get Josh on your team! Thank you Josh for supporting me on my journey towards optimal health!

Colleen Moulton

I continue to feel better than I have felt for most of my life and feel I’m better equipped to keep moving along the path to health. I continue to make strides in terms of a healthy lifestyle and diet…always improving.

Priscilla Corcoran

I reached out to Josh and his team to help me identify what exactly I needed to do for MY body. I am very pleased with the results. In less than 6 months my blood work – cholesterol, blood sugars, inflammatory markers, urate – all went from elevated to mid- to low-normal! I felt so much better, more energized, and started losing weight without effort. Josh’s team listened to my concerns, developed a program just for me – one that I could live with – encouraged me, and answered all my questions. In all, I am very pleased with Josh and his team and highly recommend them!

Josh is almost like a perfectionist whose teaching skills reflect in the Classroom. Even though I’m a pharmacist and have attended various continuing education lessons, I found Josh’s lectures to be amazingly simply and extremely interesting.
