Are you having physical symptoms such as bloating, fatigue, depression, foggy brain or chronic insomnia? These are signals that the body is out of balance. It doesn’t always mean medicine or surgery is necessary or you have a serious illness. It is frustrating to feel bad and not know where to start to get better. This is also true when you have a fitness or weight goal and are confused about what is the best path for you to reach your goal.
Finding the reasons or the cause of symptoms and correcting them can often restore health without medical intervention or along with it. Looking into your lifestyle dynamics, history, environment, genetics and using specialized testing will help create a personalized road map designed just for you. You don’t have to feel like you are stuck anymore, I can help you. As a Functional Medicine Nutritionist that is what I do.
I have been on a thousand diets over my life time. I lost 45 pounds in 6 months very easily on the Keto diet. Then I hit a wall. I had another 30 pounds to lose, was doing everything right but my weight would not budge. After 3 months of struggling and feeling like a failure, I contacted Gay Riley. We had our meetings over Zoom because I don’t live in Dallas. She had me do several tests for nutrition, gut health and a genetic test. It was intense but she made it easy by explaining my test results and what food, exercise, supplements and lifestyle adjustments I could make specific to my genetics and health. Most importantly those changes comfortably fit into my daily life! After 6 months I finally am at my goal weight, have energy, and am not suffering with thinking about dieting all the time. I continue to check in with Gay because I know the battle is not over and she is always there to throw me a lifeline!

After several unsuccessful rounds of IVF, I felt like a failure, I was worn out, exhausted, depressed, and my stomach was always in knots. I was afraid I might really be sick. The minute I sat down with Gay to make sense of my symptoms I felt at ease and I knew everything was going to be okay. It is 3 years now I have worked on and off with Gay. I am feeling great, excited about life and I am a mom.
Stella, Physician’s Assistant, Tyler
I was in a bad place for years – I was sick with multiple gastrointestinal issues and feeling pretty defeated. I had worked with multiple GI docs over 2 years and wasn’t getting better. Then I met Gay and everything changed.
I saw marked improvement in a matter of months. She spends time with you, she listens to you and you really feel that she cares. Gay was a lifesaver for me. I highly recommend her to anyone, especially anyone dealing with unexplained medical issues.

I have ADHD and rheumatoid arthritis among other physical problem. For the past 10 years of my life I have been disabled and unable to function normally. Gay literally helped me get my life back. I have lost 28 pounds, my digestion and regularity has returned, I can sleep and have energy! I have cut my medications in half. And I guess more than anything Gay didn’t give up on me. She was patient, caring and thorough. Thank you Gay!
