Before working with Joanne I was really struggling with my eczema. There were lots of different foods that were irritating it and making the symptoms worse and despite eliminating them from my diet my symptoms were still there. I was getting overwhelmed with how many foods were irritating me and wanted to find out what was going on inside. I wanted an idea of my overall gut health to address some bloating. My skin was causing me a lot of irritation and made me very self-conscious particularly as it was on my hands and noticeable in my work.
Working with Joanne has dramatically impacted my life for the better. We have got to the root cause of my gut health and eczema, understood the triggers so I can maintain optimal health, found a supplement schedule that is personalised for my health and not only that I have felt seen, heard and supported throughout. Joanne went far above and beyond my expectations.
Before, embarking on a journey in Nutritional Therapy I was hesitant about supplementation and the minefield of testing. I didn't understand whether I'd have to spend a lot of money or whether it was affordable for me.
My main breakthroughs are being able to eat in a healthy balanced way and having a healthy relationship with food again. I now understand if I have a breakout of eczema I know what stress is causing it and I know how to eliminate it myself.
My main challenges were the ups and downs mentally of going through such an experiment with the food, testing, supplements etc. Eating out and eliminating the vast amount of foods we were trying was really mentally challenging but I couldn't have done it without Jo.
Jo responded to every single query I had and more. She made me feel like I was her only client. She went above and beyond, always thinking about different things we could try and doing extra research. She explained every rational and didn't make me feel pressured to try anything I wasn't comfortable with.
I felt beyond supported by Joanne. I couldn't have done any of it without her. I didn't want her services to end in all honesty I wish I could continue working with her.
The protocol Joanne sent was detailed and intense but in my background I understood it and what we needed to do, I knew it wasn't going to be a quick and easy fix. I will admit I was quite overwhelmed by it all and at certain times I felt overwhelmed. Jo reassured me and almost coached me through it whilst also having to coach myself.
I would happily go back to Joanne if needing too and more than happy to recommend her services to others and have already.
