Just wanted to say a huge thanks again Annaliese. I can’t believe (and my Dr. certainly can’t) how much my diabetes has improved on the programme. As I said, I’ve had to use A LOT less insulin and although I took a week or so to get the balance right I couldn’t have hoped for a better outcome. The weight loss is just a bonus when I think about the long term health benefits of managing my sugars better. I will be back to get more inspiration I’m sure.
My weight is currently in the way of my dream of starting a family. But after doing this program I am that much closer to taking the next step – IVF. I’m just so glad I signed up as I’ve tried so many times to lose weight to no avail. Thank you Annaliese! (and all the other girls on the programme for your support). My periods are more regular already, which tells me my PCOS must be improved too. All in only 8 weeks! My advice is to sign up and give it everything you can. It’s a lot of cooking, a lot of commitment but it’s really really worth it. xxx
We are loving the programme! I feel great. Also my partner has had a gross fungal rash on his feet that he’s been trying to get rid of for AGES and it’s nearly gone already!
My visit to the Dr was quite good.My blood sugars dropped 5 points to 49.My liver is very good and no longer considered fatty .Very pleased with my results.I also lost 5 kg 😊So thank you so much for all your help I just have to keep up the good work!
Wow, where do I start …..
I think it was March when I first saw Annaliese’s Feed Yourself Healthy email come via by Inbox. I wasn’t currently looking for a change in my eating but have wanted for such a long time to lose a little weight (actually a lot of weight 10kgs to be precise)! I considered myself to be someone who ate relatively healthy – people at work always commented about the ‘healthy’ looking food I consumed. But, in reality it wasn’t as healthy as what it could be and although I exercised like a demon regularly, PT sessions, bootcamps, buddy training and also own my own, nothing seem to work well. Two of the five questions in that first email caught my attention:
- Do your good health intentions get pushed aside by your busy life, over and over again? And;
- Do you wish you had a plan that was simple, healthy and ACTUALLY do-able?
So I thought why not and enrolled. The eight weeks of the plan rolled by quite quickly and I said goodbye to 6.5kgs. This weight was the easiest that I’ve managed to lose and maintain in such a long time. But it’s not all about the weight – my lifestyle has changed. I now have the tools I need to look after myself when life gets ridiculously busy. Annaliese provides you with all the tools you need to make whatever changes you desire. Fantastic weekly shopping lists, the most amazing recipes (that even my husband loves) and best of all great weekly catch up sessions with Annaliese, others in the group and special guest appearances. If something doesn’t work or you don’t like a particular ingredient Annaliese is right there to make great alternative suggestions. I initially thought I may have to stop by the ‘speciality health food store’ to pick up some odd bits and pieces but pretty much everything you need is available from your local grocery store! This is not just an eight week healthy eating plan – it’s a super easy forever plan!
I am so pleased I found Annaliese! She really listens, is very compassionate, and provides advice that actually works and is easy to stick to because its tailored to you and fits in with your lifestyle. I have seen my own health improve greatly, she has helped me bounce back from two pregnancies which included weight loss, re-balancing my hormones and re-building a heathy body. I have absolute faith in Annalieses advice. If you are thinking about getting health or nutrition advice – she is the BEST!
I have been seeing Annaliese for 14 months now, she has helped me change my life. I have never felt or looked this good, and everyone is noticing. Coming from a background of health she has lived and breathed her work. I would highly recommend Annaliese for all your health issues. Best life decision I have ever made.
I discovered the wonderful talents of Annaliese about 2 yrs ago. From the start Annaliese promoted the benefits of wellness & wellbeing rather than dwelling on problems. She has inspired me to not only continue working with her but highly recommend my students to her as well. As yet, the feedback only reinforces the level of professionalism, inspiration, skill and joy of working with Annaliese that I get.
I went to see Annaliese rather reluctantly, having never been to a naturopath before, with expectations of a modern Witchdoctor without a fancy headdress. Well, that was wrong! My immune system and energy level issues disappeared within a few days, my diet has improved, our shopping bill is cheaper, somehow my lifelong Hay fever problem has disappeared, my eyes have never looked so clear, and everyone keeps telling me how much happier I am.
All in return for some diet changes, some herbal tonic and vitamins, and being willing to try something that is definitely different, but when you hear it, actually makes perfect sense!
I consulted with Annaliese before & during my pregnancy. I found her to have a friendly & professional manner. Annaliese provided sound practical advice on good nutrition and prescribed herbal formulas which made all the difference when preparing for the arrival of my little girl. It also contributed to a positive birth experience and recovery. I am happy to recommend her to prospective mothers.
After a few years of health issues that were not being treated at all by my doctor, I was happily referred to Annaliese by a friend. I had been to a Naturopath 10 years before so knew they were kinder and more interested in helping than a normal GP. The first day I went to see Annaliese I could hardly drive. I felt so tired and horrible I thought I would crash the car. She started me on treatment that first day, while I was in her office and I was able to walk out feeling better, and happy that I had found someone who would and could help me with my health and well-being.
Within two weeks she had diagnosed me with a thyroid issue which was leading to my terrible fatigue and depression. I went back to my doctor with the blood results I had received and she had no idea what was wrong, and only once I had pointed out the things Annaliese had deduced from my tests did she come up with the same conclusion. My doctor said I would soon have to go on steroids, which once started I would have to take for the rest of my life.
I decided to go with the natural options that Annaliese gave me and now after six months of treatment with Annaliese I have had completely normal blood results, am happily pregnant and am once again a safe driver! Sometimes if feels like you need to put up with feeling unwell and run-down, but it is a mistake that many of us fall in to. Having had this experience I know I will never allow myself to think like that again. And I’m glad to have Annaliese on my side to help me out if I get sick again!
Annaliese’s advice was thorough and specific to my case so that not only did she give me realistic, practical and ongoing support for achieving a healthy, personal body weight that I can maintain and live with, but she dealt with associated and contributing health issues that were adversely affecting my overall well-being.
I was impressed by her detailed knowledge and grateful for the information she gave me. After struggling with weight and eating problems for some years, I have made really encouraging progress and feel equipped to move on to being more self-motivated and independent.
Annaliese is approachable and easy to talk to and I fully intend to go on consulting her as and when necessary, since the help she has already given me has inspired me to be pro-active about my health.
I have been seeing Annaliese on and off for over a year. She has been fantastic at helping me reduce my stress levels through herbal medicine and I know I can always ask her for help when I am getting stressed out. The herbal formulas she makes me seem to get me through difficult times in my life so I can deal with them without getting ill. I haven’t been sick for over a year because of this preventative approach.
She has also helped me to completely rid myself of PMS symptoms and I am now hormonally balanced and symptom free.
I highly recommend Annaliese to anyone wanting to achieve a healthy and happy mind and body!
Thank you Annaliese for the help you gave us for our daughter. You were more than willing to go the extra mile for us. I highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a professional, genuine and caring naturopath.
Annaliese has been amazing, she truly understands what your body and mind need. She has helped me through some tough times and gave my body what it needed to combat the stresses of life and of moving countries. I’ve been having regular massages which have been brilliant which have helped decrease my headaches and migraines and made me feel so much better. The combination of body work and naturopathy have helped to turn my life around, my outlook on life has totally changed, her encouragement and understanding have been vital to the progress that I’ve made. I’ve now left Auckland but will continue to see Annaliese as regularly as I can.
I really feel that your herbal formula’s helped get me out of a ‘yuk’ spot. I was feeling like there was no way out. Taking your medicine and following your advice gave me direction. Thanks so much for that.
We are so happy with the results. We have been struggling with my 4 and 2 year old and their mucas, irritable bowel and constant ear, throat and chest infections have dried up. I found Annaliese symapthetic, sensible and realisitc with her approach.
Testimonial for Eczema Ease (Skin Guacamole)
Eczema Ease takes the redness out of my daughter’s eczema trouble spots surprisingly quickly, and I find it works just as well as hydrocortisone creams. It is a relief to find something natural that is effective… we’ve tried everything!
