Why Choose Us?
Stacey’s passion is helping you heal yourself with food and herbs. It’s truly her calling. While studying for a Masters Degree in Oriental Medicine, it became clear that all of the amazing tenets of Eastern Medicine could be applied to food and used as everyday healing agents for so many people. Stacey knew that if she combined what she was learning about the properties of food, herbs, and supplements with what she already knew from her chef’s training, it would be life-changing.
And it is. This training in both Eastern and Western medicine, combined with an obsession with food and cooking, has created a unique perspective and knowledge base that has helped so many people. We want to help you. Nothing is more frustrating than knowing that these tools exist but that so many of you have not been taught them.
Stacey Isaacs has a skillset that nobody else can offer you. She has cooked with some of the most respected chefs and she has healed thousands of people like you.

But, deep in her soul, she still had the calling to be a healer.
Stacey began cooking foods for people who had specific dietary needs. She was a personal-chef-of-sorts to people with cancer, gluten intolerance, Parkinson’s, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis and many more conditions.

I’m a professional golfer and I was looking for ways to get more energy and stamina. I worked with Stacey (via Skype) and honestly, I was surprised at how the tweaks she made to my lifestyle worked! I was a little resistant to all of these “healthy” foods, so I decided to first just get my feet wet by adjusting my breakfast and lunch. I ate everything Stacey suggested – she had a different plan for tournament and rest days. By following her advice, I was able to maintain a level state of energy throughout the day and I had more energy during my tournaments! As an added bonus, I lost some weight and got rid of my heartburn. Now, I look forward to the possibilities of being healthier in the future. — John Hickson PGA
Stacey, I did all three things that you told me to do this week in my free phone consultation. I am feeling so much better and I’m walking better with no pain in my legs! What can I say, but that you are amazing and I thank you so much. — Serena C.
My mom talked me into seeing Stacey. I was hesitant at first because I was in my early 20s and I was afraid she was going to make me change my lifestyle a little too much.I had been diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and my life had become really hard, so I agreed to meet with Stacey. After only three weeks, my digestion was great. And, I lost weight! Now, while I’m not perfect, Stacey’s ways have become my new lifestyle and I know that if I start to cheat too much and I feel poorly again, I can always come back to what Stacey taught me and I can heal myself. — Briana K.
I was diagnosed with high cholesterol and I was worried about it because of my bad family medical history. The doctor placed me on cholesterol medication. This made Stacey crazy. She talked me into eating only what she told me to eat for 6 weeks. Because I’m her husband, she told me to go off of the medication for this 6 weeks and to then get another blood test. (I know that normally, she won’t tell people to go off of any medications prescribed by a doctor.) I love a good experiment, but I didn’t really expect the great results that followed. At the end of the 6 weeks, I was re-tested and my bad cholesterol went down 30 points and my good cholesterol went up 40 points. And this was after only 6 weeks! She can be a pain in the butt sometimes, but she knows what she’s doing… — Steve I. (Stacey’s husband)
Stacey changed my life. I’ve always been a runner, but as I got older, I started having a lot of hip pain so I had to stop. I also had horrible digestive issues and even had to have my gallbladder removed, and this created more digestive issues. I was really feeling old and unhealthy. I really thought I had tried everything – I wish I had gone to Stacey first. Stacey changed my diet. It’s funny, because I was following my doctor’s advice and I really thought I was eating healthy, but with just a few of Stacey’s changes, my digestion started to run smoothly – no more having to know where every bathroom was at all times! Then, we worked on my inflammation; now I’m running again. It sound hokey, but Stacey really changed my life and I am forever grateful. — Randi S.
