I went to see Tina as a result of extreme fatigue, depression and bulimia. I had been to see many doctors and therapists in the past but decided to go for a more holistic approach in seeing Tina. During the first visit Tina made me feel very much at ease and gave me an incredible amount of hope in my situation. We soon discovered that my adrenal glands were not functioning well hence my extreme fatigue. Tina put me on several different supplements and gave diet and lifestyle advice. Over a course of 3 months I felt miraculously better. Along with the discovering of my low adrenals Tina found that my diet was creating cravings that I had no control over. My sugar levels were somewhat of a rollercoaster! Tina taught me a completely different way to eat to balance my insulin levels without being hungry - ever. I have changed my way of eating but most importantly my relationship with food. Tina has taught me to be healthy in abundance and not deprivation.
Before coming to the see Tina I was feeling low in my moods and had very low energy levels and just didn't feel great in myself. My weight and eating habits played a huge part in this. Since my appointment with Tina I have lost 2 stone, which was always my goal and everyone is commenting on it and it feels amazing and makes it all worth the while and left me wanting to keep up my new lifestyle. Tina advised on specific tests I needed to establish what nutrient deficiencies and food allergies I had, along with my genetic predisposition to burn carbs, fats etc. She then created a bespoke plan that suited my busy, on the go lifestyle and limited cooking skills. I find keeping the weight off very easy now. Having been yoyo dieting for years I now enjoy a much more balanced sustainable diet that I love.
I had been suffering from acne for many years and wanted to understand if my diet was contributing to my poor skin. Tina explained how diet, hormones and stress affect our skin and taught me how to balance my body naturally to stop the acne, but also supported my blood sugar and reversed my type 2 diabetes. I now have clear, healthy skin and much better energy levels and vitality.
For many years I was suffering from abdominal pain that was attributed to various diagnoses. Years of antacids and gallons of Gaviscon did not help! Tina has changed my life with her excellent and easy to impliment advice and help - I am a changed man.
I went to see Tina when I was 45 as I had piled on the pounds, was feeling totally lousy in myself, not sleeping, felt unmotivated and I'd developed anxiety and depression. Tina suggested I maybe going through peri-menopause and recommended a full hormonal assessment. My hormones were all over the place and I was lacking testosterone and progesterone which were the cause of my problems. My stress hormones were way too high from lack of sleep and not taking care of myself. She referred me to a hormone specialist for bio identical hormones and worked with me to help me lose the weight, sleep through the night and get my mojo back. I'm so grateful to her for help, my waistline has shrunk so I can wear my clothes again and I'm feeling so much better in myself.
I saw Tina talk at my school and I realised I needed professional help to help me through my disordered eating. I asked my mum to organise a consultation. I saw Tina regularly for a few months. She worked with me to develop a healthy relationship with my body and with my food. I am now much happier in myself and can enjoy foods without fear and counting calories.
