Anahata Little, LMP, Massage Therapist. Bainbridge Island, WA
I transformed this morning! I felt myself literally blooming inside my head! I've really been struggling with SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). I was coming out of sleep and I saw my Mother tired and dragging when we moved to Oregon after my high school graduation. Granted, the poor woman had packed up her home, moved away from her entire social network, and was commuting to a new job (gee, sound familiar), but I could see there was something else going on... and she looked at me and spoke to me in the vision and said, "I'm so SAD!" Well, so was I! I got on the phone called my nutrition friend and guru, Maxime Zahra at Prasad Nutrition, and told her about the vision. She sent me right out to get a certain supplement and told me to take it right when I woke up this morning. OMG! About 30 minutes after ingesting the tablet, it felt like my brain was blooming open--like someone had gotten into the darkness in my brain and snapped the shade open and there I was in this sunny place. It was amazing. For the last few weeks I have been struggling. I got shingles, and it has been slow to resolve. My energy was non-existent. This week seems to be "Man Week" at my practice--all the men clients were making appointments and I was very distressed I would not have the energy to work with them. They are bigger, taller, and moving that bulk around is exhausting. Well, this morning I had the energy I needed to go my usual fantastic job and the men skipped out of here feeling great. So what is this miracle supplement? Call Maxime at Prasad Nutrition. What is right for me might not be right for you--it might be really wrong for you--and getting it right is Maxime's training and passion. Thank you, Maxime! I feel human again.

Gwen Jones, Agility Trainer. Sebastopol, CA
One year ago today, I went to the hospital because of serious gut pain. I ended up staying there for 9 days due to diverticulitis. Instead of the intestinal surgery my doctors recommended, I opted to seek an alternative way to heal myself. A friend referred me to Maxime, who guided me into a new way of thinking and being with regard to food, my body, my heart and soul. I haven't had a single episode since, and have a more compassionate connection with my body. Thank you so much.

Hayden Terstegge, Bookkeeper and Mom. Sebastopol, CA
What I love most about working with Maxime is that she really looks at the big picture in regards to your health. We are addressing all aspects of life, not just diet and supplements. Her approach is to heal the whole body, mind and spirit. I felt a huge improvement in my energy and mood within a few days of making some very small changes in my diet. Maxime takes gradual steps to helping improve overall health, so you never feel overwhelmed. She has been true gift not only to myself; my entire family is feeling the positive changes that I have made! She is really a gifted practitioner.

When a person has been unwell, navigating what to eat can become yet another stressor. Thanks to Prasad Nutrition, my life has been simplified and feels very nourishing. I really love being given permission to eat, rather than being told what I cannot eat. Because I am well nourished now in the morning, I work, run my errands, stop at the grocery store, and am able to shop for just what I need and not give in to grabbing something that will take me down. Where I used to be craving, and vulnerable to making poor food choices, instead I come home, have a healthy, delicious lunch, and feel balanced all day.
My feet and calves had been hurting quite a lot. I had a gym membership, but hadn't been inspired to work out there. Maxime suggested I walk in nature, which I really love, and use my gym shoes. It seems silly now that I hadn't thought of it before, because since then I have been enjoying walking every morning. This has made a big improvement in how my feet and calves feel, plus I am getting more exercise.
I am thankful for the insight and support I have received from Prasad Nutrition!

Maxime is professional, thoughtful, heartfelt, and knowledgable about nutrition, herbs, supplements, therapy practices, etc.
She is able to assist others through her own experiences of what works and not afraid to take risks and build community. She is particularly good at supporting brain chemistry, mood, and a healthy diet. She also leads a healing Facebook group for anyone who needs extra support!
I recommend her to anyone who is making diet and lifestyle changes.

Rob Smith, Owner, Project Zen. San Francisco, CA
Having had some serious knee surgery last year that yielded a good amount of complications and pain I was in need of serious help with inflammation and healing. Maxime provided me just that. I won't get into the details, but I will say that Maxime helped me get things sorted out. I am feeling much better and owe a lot of that to Maxime's VERY educated advice.
On a side note; I have experienced some bodywork as well with Maxime and can easily state that she is a truly gifted healer.
Thank you, Maxime!

Pamella O’Dea, Massage Therapist. San Francisco, CA
I have been working with Maxime for a couple of years and I feel so blessed to have a wise consultant who has personal experience in the spectrum of diets from plant based to healthy omnivore. She is able to guide me by doing a thorough case history and having me provide a sample food diary that she assesses with a nutrition software program. These tools and her vast knowledge of nutrition and experience allow her to determine the best course of action for me to fine tune my body for optimal health. I like that she focuses on whole foods and herbs as the dominant "remedies," and supplements as an adjunct.
She is a warm, caring, dedicated, curious, free spirit and fun to work with! Our first consultation was at the beach, so you can definitely expect a unique experience. I highly recommend her as a doorway to the best you, you can be!

Janine Sobala, Hospice Nurse. Sonora, CA
Maxime helped me transition from feeling unwell and extremely fatigued, to becoming energized and healthy! She created an open, non-judgemental space in which I was able to recognize for myself what wasn't serving me, and to step into truly nourishing myself. Through Maxime's gentle guidance, I learned so much. I was able to heal my body through understanding what works for me and eating in a healthier manner to meet my unique needs. She is extremely knowledgeable and insightful. She has given me tools I will use the rest of my life.
I have also had the privilege of tasting Maxime's wonderful food on many occasions. Her knowledge of the connection between body and soul is obvious, as she creates not just amazingly healthy foods, but foods which are also blissfully delectable. She is always an inspiration to me for new ways of eating healthy! I have loved working with Maxime and will continue to do so.

Maxime has a very unique medicine. When I first came to see her, I hadn't been able to work in 10 months. I had taken a prescription tranquilizer for a long-time sleep problem and become very ill from the withdrawal. On top of the insomnia, I was extremely anxious and depressed, and I had chronic fatigue but no appetite, so it was very hard to restore my energy. My psychiatrist diagnosed bipolar disorder, but none of the meds relieved my symptoms.
Maxime helped me recover from the effects of the benzos, the withdrawal, and restored my appetite. She taught me simple things to do to maximize the nutrition I was getting from what I ate, and I regained my sense of taste and enjoyment of food. She knew exactly what I needed when no one else did, and she encouraged me to stay with it, through my resistance. The nutrients she recommended worked immediately and without any side effects like you get from drugs.
My enthusiasm for life returned, and I am happy to report that I am working and creating art again, and have regained my previous vitality, muscle tone and mental well being, as well as being free of all those toxic prescriptions. I recommend Prasad Nutrition highly.

Maxime is fiercely committed to uplifting the quality of life through sound nutritional science. She has the background and training to provide value and clarity at every step.

I am happy to sing her praises!

Having passed out from low blood sugar in public places, I had become afraid to leave my home. I was also having trouble sleeping nights. Since working with you, I rest better, am more relaxed, I have stabilized my blood sugar, and I'm on the go again. Plus the constant cravings are gone. I've learned to fix solid meals and healthy snacks, which help me to stay on an even keel. I feel like the old me again. Prasad Nutrition has been a dramatic help. Thank you!
You are on the right path. You helped me immensely when western medicine told me otherwise. I've learned that diet, sleep, meditation as a tool to naturally aid stress, and exercise, create wellness beyond medication. In short, keep on with your work. And know, I send you so much gratitude and love for what you gave me. May many, many others receive your wisdom and good health

Van Hausman, Apple Specialist. San Francisco, CA
Maxime is a very gifted health practitioner. She takes time to get to know all your health issues and goals, and methodically plots out a plan to get you healthier. She really helped me in a couple of key areas via nutritional suggestions. I also know she has done great work for a number of other people too. She really cares about her clients and the work she does, and is constantly improving her craft. I wholeheartedly recommend her for any and all health issues!

I experienced positive results from following the nourishing food and supplement plan Maxime designed specifically for my body type and medical needs. She was able to answer all of my questions and address each of my concerns, explaining thoroughly how each recommendation would improve my well-being.
I am experiencing great health once again. I have a better working knowledge about my food and supplement intake, which has been extremely beneficial up to this date. I highly recommend Maxime's services and would be glad to work with her again in the future.

Allen Swift, Retired Actor. New York, NY
My 85 year-old husband came home from the hospital after surgery in miserable condition, physically and emotionally spent. In addition to being depressed (even with antidepressant medications) he had no appetite and was listless. He had given up on life.
Maxime reviewed all the medications and vitamins he was taking, making suggestions to help us prioritize and optimize their effect. She discovered certain nutrient deficiencies that were contributing to his state and suggested he eat certain foods and eliminate others, preparing them for us in our home and showing me, so I could learn how to do it. She put him on a cleanse, after which he regained many essential functions, along with his appetite, sense of humor and joie de vivre.
Through her care, we learned that we actually love healthy food. Allen was able to enjoy the best time he'd had in years after Maxime brought the loving wisdom and skills of Prasad Nutrition into our home. --Lenore Loveman
