Thanks to Jane I feel better than I can ever remember. I now feel so much happier in myself and am so glad I did this before my wedding this summer. I had 4 appointments over 4 months and to my great relief, the improvements started within days of making changes
Previously, I was so tired I fell asleep on the sofa at 8pm (girlfriend not happy) and had no energy to get through my working day, let along go to the gym. I had a hiatus hernia, daily acid reflux and endoscopies showed inflammation and 80% narrowing in my oesophagus above my pyloric sphincter. I constantly felt full and food would be uncomfortable to swallow and digest. I didn’t want to rely on Lansoprazole or any other medication.
A dietician appointment produced a handout on smoothies that didn’t address the root cause nor change my wider eating habits. I knew I was eating rubbish and finally decided to consult a nutritional therapist specialising in digestive health to really get to the bottom of my issues.
Jane explained that what I was eating was leading to inflammation and that with some simple changes and relevant supplements she could support the inflammation and help to heal my gut. She was great at motivating me, encouraging changes and giving useful recipes and handouts.
Within days, I started to feel better, my energy increased, I was able to tolerate the suggested foods, I learned to embrace whole foods to nourish me rather than relying on quick fixes. The discomfort reduced and at my follow-up appointment 4 weeks later I had reduced reflux symptoms from 20 times per week to twice a week. I no longer need the Lansoprazole and had no energy dips.
At each appointment this continued to improve. I’d wake up and be wide awake rather than feeling my head was stuck to the pillow, which would make me feel like going to the gym, which increased my confidence and became a positive cycle where I got even more energy. My relationship has improved and so I feel so much better about everything in my life.
I now know the good stuff to put in, and what to avoid. I will definitely continue to eat like this, I love my new habits and will never go back to what I what and how I was eating. Thanks so much Jane!
