Testimonials from a selection of my clients.
I had lived with increasingly more frequent episodes of Gout and suffered from constipation for several years. I turned 40 in May and it motivated me to do something about it.
I met Anneliese in June and began the Metabolic Balance programme. Within 8 weeks my weight had dropped from 85 to 76Kg’s. I now no longer suffer from gout or constipation and I feel better than ever. Anneliese has helped me make simple informed changes to my diet, eating habits and lifestyle that have completely transformed my life.
Anyone looking to engage themselves in a lot of cycling, I would wholly recommend seeing Anneliese. Last April, I decided I would start cycling the 28 miles to and from work, as well as working towards competing in a triathlon. As the end of each week neared, I continually found myself running out of energy and thinking that maybe I was too old for this level of exercise (I’m only 43..). My chiropractor recommended Anneliese, not only has Anneliese provided me with the nutritional education that now has me cycling into the weekend but she has helped me understand how our bodies respond to what we eat, drink and the supplements we take. I am looking forward to my first triathlon with no fear of running out of energy. Thank you Anneliese.
Just to let you know that further to your help I have seen great improvements and have not had any bouts of sore stomach for some time – I will book a further appointment I think just to keep on track (coffee still hard to quit) but I would like to thank you for your guidance.
I would just like to say that Anneliese’s were the most amazingly effective consultations I have had. Her beautifully simple holistic approach has spurred me on to make those small, yet crucial, changes That one needs to make. On each occasion, I found the sessions to be highly personalized and tailor made to suit me and my busy lifestyle. Her awareness of these practical considerations impressed me too. I always left feeling both energized and educated by her deep knowledge base and attentive manner. My motivation is higher now than ever and I truly feel that positive outcomes have started to affect my life in a meaningful way.
Anneliese will be sorely missed at Spirohealth. She is the most natural, up to date and personable nutritionalist we have had as part of our team. We wish her all the best in the future.
Dear Anneliese, I hope this finds you well. I’m feeling really well now, my energy is much restored and the most exciting aspect is that I haven’t been ill once since I began working with you! This time last year i’d been ill three times and had more than a fortnight off work. I haven’t even had a sniffle, so thank you for your advice.
I just wanted to drop you a quick email to let you know that mum has just received the results of her latest bone density scan – her hip and spine have both increased by more than 3%. I think this is the first time there has been an increase she was diagnosed so that’s really good news.
As a busy Mum, life can sometimes overwhelm you with duty and your own well being can easily be neglected. In the last few years I had noticed a steady weight gain and an overall decline in health. A friend of mine had told me about Metabolic Balance so I set about finding a coach and was delighted learn Anneliese was practising in my local area. Although I was consciously in the right place seeking advice I never thought the programme would work on me because nothing ever had in the past.
Anneliese couldn’t have been more supportive in guiding me through the process, we took it one week at a time. It was manageable and transformative. I lost two stone by the end of the program. A pie in the sky goal I had set for myself, never really thinking it would happen. It did happen and more importantly the weight has stayed off and my overall attitude towards how and what I eat has changed. I have Anneliese to thank for this, she is incredibly knowledgeable, patient and discreet. So if you are ready to commit to a better you contact Anneliese and she will get you there. Good luck!
It is now some months down the line since I last saw you and I wanted to update you on how things are, mostly so you’ll know what a good job you did and how you helped me change. I came to you with acid reflux, which I now haven’t experienced for what seems a long while. I’m 6 kilos lighter, exercising regularly and eating tomatoes!(and many other things e.g. regular oily fish and green leafy veg). Just a thank you – you’ve helped me sort things out 🙂
I arranged to see Anneliese for some general nutritional advice. My diet was already pretty good but Anneliese gave me lots of practical suggestions and positive advice on ways to improve it. I felt completely comfortable with Anneliese and trusted that she wouldn’t ask me to make any changes I couldn’t maintain. I followed the advice given, have lots more energy and feel great!
Anneliese’s approach is completely different to that of any nutritionist I have known (and I have known quite a few). She doesn’t impose rules, bully, cajole or frighten. She works with you – taking into account who you are, what your idiosyncracies and habits are and what your likes and dislikes are. Totally non-judgemental, pleasant, fun and unthreatening. Informative, intelligent and encouraging to boot. The result is that eating more healthily becomes a joy not a penance. I can recommend this lady to anyone with a serious interest in improving their diet.
Prior to seeing Anneliese, I had never sought nutritional advice but I thought I would see what it was all about having suffered long term fatigue and finding no solution through my GP. I had glandular fever some years ago and had found since then that I was prone to extended bouts of exhaustion that impacted my work, my social life and my ability to exercise. I also suffered from IBS and weight fluctuation. In my ignorance, I thought that all that a nutritionist could do would be to make some changes to my diet and that I might see some slight changes; I was totally unprepared for the complete turnaround that I saw as a result of Anneliese’s treatment.
Anneliese quickly identified an adrenal problem, for which I took a test and the results substantiated Anneliese’s diagnosis. After two months of taking supplements and changing my diet, my energy levels had quite literally soared. I was no longer feeling constantly tired, was exercising and leading a normal life. The IBS also was a lot less prevalent. After years of being a slave to my energy levels, I was finally free!More recently, Anneliese has taken me through the Metabolic Balance diet, through which I lost 18lb relatively quickly and easily. No other diet I have tried has achieved these results whilst also changing my appetite and tendency to slip into bad habits.
Throughout the time I have been treated by Anneliese, she has remained incredibly professional, conscientious and knowledgeable. I appreciate the fact that she is always available to answer questions and it is clear that Anneliese genuinely really cares about her clients and their progress.
