Ava. L. 41 yrs, Edinburgh
Anxiety, Panick attacks, fatigue, PMDD, painful digestion
DUTCH, Stool and Blood
Feedback: Noticeably the first thing that improved was my digestion and once I was able to eat without pain I started to feel better about myself. I was going through a very stressful time with a house move and a wedding but at the same time I started to feel in control. Months later I now have my energy back, my thoughts and anxiety in control and are loving food again. Thanks Jo for not only putting me back on track but also putting up with my need for reassurance. I will always remember the 'rules' you taught me.

Fatigue, bloating, sensitivity to food, severe diarrhoea
Stool and Chronic Fatigue Screen
Feedback: Diarrhoea has been the focus of my life for the past four years, I have to plan my day around it to the point if I am away from home I will not eat during that time. Sleep is also disturbed as I will need to. wake during the night. When I did the stool test it showed up a few things, but mainly it showed me that there was something I could do. Jo put together a gentle gut support for me and I got stuck in. The difference was obvious within days. I now have my confidence to go out more without worrying where the nearest toilet is. Jo was very thoughtful and encouraged me throughout and understood my fears.
Florence.V.46 yrs, Colchester
Fatigue, PMS, low mood, cravings, erratic energy
Feedback: I would like to think I have a very good understanding about health and nutrition but felt something was wrong or missing. I was referred to Jo by a friend. Jo quickly helped me to understand what was going on with my hormones and how this was impacting my health and how I was feeling. Jo really helps to make you understand what is going on and is generous with her time and her advice. I know our sessions sometimes went over but she wanted to make sure I was confident to move forward. I am now in a great place and really feel like the old me but also understand me a bit better.

Bloating, gas, pain, constipation
SIBO/IMO and stool test
Feedback: I had read about the term SIBO so when I discussed this with Jo she explained the different types and while symptoms can be similar we needed to make sure that we going to address this the correct way. I did the SIBO test and the stool test and it came back with a positive for methane SIBO and the stool test showed up some other areas that needed attention. Jo put together an intense gut programme, she explained in detail how important each part is and what we were doing. It did feel overwhelming as there are a good few supplements but Jo did make sure it was manageable and that I was onboard. Three months later I think I now have the best digestion!! What a change and feel relieved that I don't have this going on inside of me anymore. I know Jo has a passion for gut health and really feel she was the best person for me.

Chronic Fatigue Screen and Thyroid Panel
Feedback: This is just a short review to say that I am firstly very thankful to Jo for even suggesting to get my thyroid checked, it turns out this was a huge part of the problem. The other CF test was an interesting exercise as sometimes you question if you are just being lazy or your are tired. I now know the answer as this test also revealed how my cortisol hormone was having an effect on my energy. I never quite understood this and how menopause can make this worse. I now have good thyroid results and continue to make changes to help support my cortisol with Jo's support. Jo is very accommodating and is really warm in her approach. I can't look at a plate without making sure there is PFC!

Fatigue, PMDD, weight gain, poor sleep
DUTCH Plus and Cycle mapping. DNA Oestrogen
Feedback: I was referred to Jo by a GP doctor who said I would benefit from Nutritional support, I actually put off getting in touch as I couldn't see the benefit. Then as things go in cycles I suddenly felt worse and decided to have a discovery call and see what Jo thought she could do. Four months on, I am please to say I now understand my hormones and have become aware that being estrogen dominant is a regular thing, Jo talked me through the DUTCH test (slightly complicated) and helped me to understand what was going on. Based on some of these results and my family history with my mum and aunty she recommended a further test which I think has been the most revealing about my health and really helped me to gain perspective on my health and what I need to do.
