In the last few days I recieved feedback from 2 clients who had a one-on-one consulation with me, one client over a year ago and the other recently. Both suffered numerous health issues, and a switch to a paleo diet made a huge difference.
“As a tall skinny person I’d never really worried about not eating healthily. I’d had I.B.S. since late teens I suspect brought on by almost 3 years of constant antibiotic use until I had open heart surgery at 16 years old. So eating a lot of fibre and fruit often caused me problems. However my health was adversely affected by prolonged stress so that I had adrenal fatigue and the start of Hashimoto disease in my early forties.
When I sought help with Julianne I was not sleeping well, both not getting to sleep easily or able to stay asleep the whole night, easily angered, crying and having trouble concentrating and remembering things. I had debilitating PMT and depression and hypoglycaemia. I’d been hospitalised twice for irregular heatbeat. Given that my personality is usually calm, logical and organised I was really struggling in my job.
As an analytical person I had done quite a bit of research into diets etc but it can be so confusing when unwell and when there is so many different opinions. Also I was looking for a quick fix; a supplement or therapy that would “cure” me.
Julianne was very kind, I think I was crying when I turned up because my foggy brain got me lost.
She listened to my worries and concerns and reassured me when I thought it seemed too hard or wasn’t working. I had tried gluten free before but Julianne told me I could feel worse before I felt better and encouraged me to push on. What a great help just to know that!
It’s been just over a year now and I don’t need to get a test for my thyroid, I know it’s better as I can swallow in the morning without pain and I have been in a job as a Manager for nearly 6 months which would have been impossible a year ago. I love not having fat days and being able to think in the afternoon instead of fuzzy thinking.
Sometimes I get lazy with my planning and don’t eat good quality meat or maybe have items with gluten too often but generally my body tells me now, “I need some fresh veggies!”
Julianne’s advice and encouragement from her seminars to her blog and articles she shares on Facebook are all part of my road to health. Julianne has taught me that everyone is different (in what works for them) and if I’m going to change something to stick with it for long enough to see if it is helpful.”
I want to let you know I’ve made a start on eating Paleo and am finding it a lot more simpler than I first thought. It has been made so easy due to your lovely explanations which I have been able to clearly understand. Thank you for taking the time to study on this complicated subject but to also being able to help others like me to understand it well and so quickly.
I of course I am still adjusting insulin intake but am finding the whole blood glucose control a lot, lot easier than ever before.Within the last few short days I have already been feeling a whole lot better and actually nourished. I thought I was ok and managing okay before, but now I realise just how unwell I’ve feeling for most of my life. Having a good clean out of the pantry and fridge of all harmful grains, seeds, beans, pulses and oils I’ve been eating without knowing they were doing more harm than good, what an enlightening experience. Without your knowledge and time in talking with me I’m not sure I would have understood it the way I do now.
Again, thank you for your wonderful explanitive help and support.
