Happy Valentine's Day


Happy Valentine's Day!

Time is moving along very fast this year and I can't believe that it is already Valentine's Day! It seems like it was just Christmas! Sorry, I have fallen behind with my newsletter! I have been really busy working with people in the new year to help them lose weight and feel better!

I wish you a very Happy New Year and also a Happy Valentine's Day!! May your day be filled with LOVE!

One of my favorite quotes: 

"Love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it." - John Lennon

For those of you who have been fortunate enough to find a true love, keep nourishing and watering your relationship so that it will continue to grow and bloom. This of course applies to all types of relationships and not just romantic love. 

Artemis in the City's Health & Nutrition Programs make Great Valentine's Day and Special Occasion Gifts! 

One of my clients recently stated

"Our 16th anniversary is Thursday and THIS is the BEST present he could give me!!!"

If you would like to find out more about my health & nutrition programs, please call toll-free 866-330-5421. This Valentine's Day give someone you love the gift of health!  

Services are offered nationally anywhere in the US. 

Sending you lots of LOVE and special wishes! XOXO 



Obesity, Public Health, Environment


Another reason why I have been so very busy is because in addition to my work with clients, I am also taking two continuing education classes which are each 6 weeks long and comprise of many lectures, assignments and weekly tests. One is on Nutrition for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention offered through the University of California at San Francisco, and the other is on the US Food System and how it relates to Public Health and the Environment and is offered through Johns Hopkins Bloomberg University. 

I am always studying, reading and trying to learn as much as possible as the health and nutrition field is always advancing and changing.The coursework in these classes is not really new information for me but it has certainly helped me remember why my work and mission is so very important.

Marion Nestle, PhD, a leader in nutrition and food politics, professor at New York University and one of the lecturers in my Holistic Nutrition program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition has said that people cannot achieve true health without also caring about sustainability and the environment. The two go together. The health of the environment = the health of people.

In this recent interview, Dr. Nestle is highlighting another important issue and that is food inequality and how the quality of food people have access to reflects the state of their health. There is great food inequality today and people today who are malnourished and starving are often also obese. 

Marion Nestle: "Americans Aren't Just Fat, They're Hungry Too!" Click here to read the article and watch the interview.

This is also true for many other people who are overweight but who can afford to buy food.  

What I see over and over again while working with people is that most people are chronically ill from slowly poisoning themselves with toxic foods that provide very little if any nutrition. They are malnourished by high calorie cheap empty food which causes many health problems, diseases and obesity.

I had a client tell me recently that, "You taught me that food heals the body. I never knew that before and it has changed my life." Everyone should know this and I am committed to helping anyone who would like my help learn and achieve a healthy life.

Call me anytime toll-free 866-330-5421. I work with individuals, couples, partners, parent and a mature child living in the same household and groups. If you have 4 or more friends or family members, get a group together to support each other on your journey to better health.

Overcoming Type 2 Diabetes with Diet


A client's story of healing: On August 16, 2012, I received an email from a woman who I had worked with two years ago. She said, "Wow...what can I say. Things have really spun out of control for me. I just received the call from my doctor saying I have Type 2 Diabetes. I have felt like crap after those last two rounds of Prednisone. Now this!"

"I was recommended to Danielle Heard by friends who knew I was struggling with pre-diabetes and could not lose weight. I took many supplements recommended by my nutritionist and exercised but nothing changed. My husband offered to work with Danielle as a couple so he could support me. A year later we can say that Danielle's instruction and personalization of our eating habits and needs have changed our lives. My A1C levels are normal. My husband no longer takes cholesterol medicine. I no longer take hundreds of dollars worth of supplements and we enjoy preparing our meals using whole foods. Our doctor was quite pleased during our yearly physicals this summer! Thank You, Danielle!"

Artemis in the City's Programs 

Focus on Good Health 

NOT just Weight-Loss!

Artemis in the City's health programs teach people how to give their body the very best nutrient dense whole foods that enable the body to heal itself and maintain weight naturally. Our programs are very successful in helping people create lasting lifestyle change and are unlike most other programs that utilize expensive synthetic diet products or hormones that are harmful and carcinogenic, or are comprised of crazy diet plans that are not sustainable leading to yo-yo dieting, weight gain and failed health goals.

Artemis in the City also teaches the healthy way to detox!

If you have any questions or need help purchasing a health program or product from our store, please call toll-free 866-330-5421


People pay thousands of dollars to go to retreat centers to learn the information that Artemis in the City is teaching! 



Artemis in the City Has  

Payment Options!


Recently a client mentioned that she was so very thankful that we had a payment plan that allowed her to make monthly payments for her health counseling program. She said that in the beginning when she first viewed the Artemis in the City website she had thought that the services were not something that she could afford. She said she is very happy that she investigated it further and made the investment in her health. If you have any questions about the programs or payment options, please do not hesitate to call toll-free 866-330-5421.


Artemis in the City is about  

Traditional Eating! 



The focus of Artemis in the City's health programs is on traditional healthy eating and lifestyle. We do not promote any one way of eating as we are all bio-individually different and we also all have our own beliefs.  


Many people have the impression that Artemis in the City is focused strictly on veganism or vegetarianism. Please let me reassure you that our programs are not. Our focus is primarily on balance, diversity and quality along with a personalized focus on addressing underlying health issues through dietary change. Food that is good for some can be harmful to others...even healthy foods!We do however promote a high plant based diet and teach people how to incorporate more vegetarian meals.  


Artemis in the City works with everyone including vegans and vegetarians. We help people live the healthiest life possible!  


Choose to give up crazy diet plans TODAY and learn to truly nourish your body and give it what it needs! Call toll-free 866-330-5421 to get started! 


Are Foods Making You Sick?


Food Sensitivity Testing 

We NOW Offer

Food & Chemical  

Antigen Allergy Testing! 


Artemis in the City now offers food and chemical sensitivity testing, also known as intolerance testing or antigen allergy testing, to clients based anywhere within the United States!

If you or someone you love has been struggling with your health and would like to identify foods and chemicals that are triggering individual health problems, we now offer comprehensive sensitivity panel tests for 400 available antigens - foods, environmental chemicals, molds, antibiotics and anti-inflammatory agents, food additives and colorings, and functional foods and medicinal herbs.

Now more than ever, diet plays a critical role in preventing a wide range of degenerative diseases and premature aging. The antigen allergy test measures personalized nutrition at the cellular level. The core technology is a blood test that measures the body's cellular response to challenges from a wide array of substances. Many common foods, chemicals and molds trigger chronic activation of the immune system leading to digestive disorders, migraines, obesity, chronic fatigue, aching joints, skin disorders, autism and more!

Sample Antigen Allergy Test Results



This is a sample of one page of the results from a client's recent antigen allergy test.  

This client previously kept extensive food diaries so we had those to compare with the results. It is amazing how accurate this testing is! Each time this client eats a food even on the mild intolerance list, the client experiences health problems. Other clients also report having health reactions when they eat foods that are listed in the intolerance columns.  


This is why there is no one diet that is right for everyone! We are all bio-individually different. We have to learn to listen to our bodies and what it is telling us. This is what Artemis in the City teaches people to do in our programs. Because our programs are personalized, this is why our clients have lasting success. As you can see with this sample report, even foods considered healthy are listed as foods that trigger intolerances for this client.  


So why do people continue to follow the same diet plans that aren't personalized, that don't work and are not lasting? 


If you were having health issues and there was a test that could identify what foods and chemicals trigger an immune system reaction in your body, wouldn't you want to have the testing done so that you could know what foods are causing inflammation in your body? 


The root of all disease is inflammation!  


Did you know that food intolerances also can cause obesity?

 "I have attended all of Danielle's workshops and had six months of counseling. I have learned so much from her about food and how it affects our health. She has done the research. One of my goals was to reduce my neck pain and to be free of pain medication. I have been able to do that. She has introduced new healthy foods that we never had before. For the first time in years my husband's cholesterol numbers and triglycerides are within normal range after only 4 months and that's with no medication. If you care about your health, you need to hear what Danielle has to say. I am so thankful that I found Danielle."

- Connie Heidbreder, Lake Cherokee, TX

"Working with Danielle has been a life changing experience for me. I was down and out, so to speak. I always felt really tired, wasn't sleeping well, my stomach was always upset and I just plain didn't feel good. Emotionally, I felt desperate for a change but didn't know where to begin. I knew I didn't want any fad diets or quick fixes that never last. I decided to give Danielle a try and in no time I felt like a new person. Taking advantage of her wealth of knowledge let me focus on getting well instead of pouring over books and articles that may or may not have been beneficial.


Her passion for life and wellness is catching! I have a ways to go still, after all, I didn't get here overnight. But in the first three months I began losing weight, sleeping better, and most importantly feeling better. I would strongly recommend Danielle's services to anyone serious about their health and lifestyle.


I remember Danielle telling me early on that once I got used to eating healthy, I wouldn't miss the junk I normally consumed. Naturally I didn't believe her....I mean really?? Who wouldn't miss a gigantic greasy hamburger dripping with fat and loaded with carbs? But you know, she was right. When I caved in to old habits and ate garbage, I actually felt terrible! I was stunned. My body has a mind of it's own.


I feel I gained a wealth of knowledge without having to do all the hard work. Again I say, if like me, you're tired of feeling bad, not having enough energy to get through the day, not sleeping well and just generally feeling blah and sick all the time, give Danielle a try. It will change your life!" 

- Teresa Baker, Longview, TX
