Julie & Maisie’s Story
Julie decided to seek Caroline’s help after years of suffering with terrible bowel problems, mood swings, depression and fertility problems. Caroline diagnosed Julie’s problem as Candida overgrowth in the bowel, which had started to affect her internal organs and reproductive cycle.
Caroline immediately put Julie on a detox diet, which included supplements to build up the good bacteria in her bowel.
By the third appointment, all of Julie’s symptoms had disappeared and she became pregnant with baby Maisie shortly afterwards.
On the 11th February 2010 I went to see Caroline after a recommendation from a family member. I had been suffering with terrible bowel problems, mood swings, depression, low motivation and many others; all of which lead me to go to the first appointment to see if there were any changes I could make to my diet to improve the situation.
My first appointment was very informative and Caroline soon explained why I had been feeling the way I had and the diagnosis also explained a lot of my other symptoms which I had tried to over look or I used other reasons to explain them. The upshot was I was suffering with a severe case of Candida overgrowth in the bowel, which because it had gone untreated for so long had started to affect my internal organs and my reproductive cycle.
Caroline immediately put me on a detox diet to starve the Candida and I took a supplement to build up the good bacteria in my bowels in order to fight off the fungus. By my second appointment my Candida levels had started to drop and my liver and kidneys were functioning a lot better. I then started a course of supplements to destroy the Candida and flush out my liver. Both of these supplements worked wonders and I soon started to feel 100% better, most of my old symptoms had disappeared and I also had my first monthly cycle for 6 months.
By my third appointment all my symptoms had disappeared and my Candida levels were well under control and almost at a normal level. I am now able to eat all foods in moderation and feel so much more positive about food in general and have a better understanding of what I am eating and how it will affect my body and what its nutritional value is.
Finally I have just found out the wonderful news that I am 14 weeks pregnant after 5 years of trying for a baby with my husband. I can’t thank Caroline enough for all her help and support over the last 5 months.
Julie – a very happy mother-to-be
