"Thanks for all your help and advice I am so pleased with the weight loss result. It really helps that even though we have never met you exude enthusiasm and that really comes across, as well as your expertise and knowledge. All the nutritional advice you gave me, the hints and tips, recipes and supplements have helped me to feel so much better. Before I came to you for advice my body felt stuffed to the gunnels, my head felt like it constantly had a tight band around it, my concentration levels were very low and I felt sluggish and tired most of the time. Now I am losing weight and enjoying my food again. I no longer have the constant headache and can read and concentrate which has helped tremendously. It's motivated me to get active again, which goes hand in glove with the weight loss, therefore, the chain reaction is a good one that impacts all areas of my life. Beforehand my habits just lead me on a downward spiral of weight gain, although I ate a lot of healthy food, I ate too much of it. What I have found interesting is the importance of regulating my blood sugar levels and how much it impacted the poor dietary choices I was making. So, at first, I was actually eating more food which didn't feel like I was depriving myself of anything which helped with keeping on track with the plan you set out for me. Again a big thank you."
"I started my sessions with Martina in January 2021, due to acid reflux and other health issues, which I had tried to resolve by cutting down on meat and exercising, which seemed to work for a while. However, I ended up with low iron and acid reflux. From the beginning I have enjoyed working with Martina. She's a great listener and has shown a lot of care and understanding regarding my health concerns. At our first meeting she advised on foods to eat and to avoid, due to acid reflux; a digestive analysis with Genova diagnostics was also advised, which I arranged shortly after our meeting. Other advice included: hydration, herbal teas, lunch/supper ideas and supplement recommendations. These changes in diet have helped me to think more about what I eat and to include more plant based, legumes and fermented foods in my diet, like sauerkraut, using Martina's recipe. In the following session, we had received the results of my digestive diagnostic test, which showed I had some functional imbalance issues with my gut. Martina was able to explain the main areas of concern and provide a nutrition and wellness plan to emphasise the type of food I needed to eat and recommended supplements to help restore my gut health, as well as details on where to buy my products. In a recent session, I was able to share with Martina some improvement in my acid reflux and overall health. As a consequence of following her advice, I feel my health has improved, but since I'm not out of the woods yet, I plan to continue my sessions with Martina. I would definitely recommend Martina to anyone looking for a Nutritional Therapist."
"I found Martina to be very knowledgeable and helpful with my nutrition needs. She comes across as very friendly and prompt with the excellent video calls. I would thoroughly recommend her."
"When you’re scratching your head and feeling lost about what to do next to take proactive and preventative care of your health, call Martina. I came to Martina having run out of options with the NHS. As far as they were concerned, my health (according to their tests) was within the parameters of ’normal’. I was experiencing significant symptoms and I knew that my body was ‘off’ somewhere. Having worked with other practitioners and had many tests done already, I really valued the careful methodical approach Martina took with me and my health. She was willing to listen, to take on board the (long) journey I’d already been on and offer me hope that I could get back to health. Carefully selected supplements which didn’t blow the budget alongside time saving recipe’s and food hacks got the basics back in place. But Martina went beyond that, she helped me to feel listened to and appreciated in all that I’d already tried. I was fatigued from trying to figure it out and she offered me hope and support that wellness was a possibility."
"I initially contacted Martina regarding symptoms I had started to experience on a daily basis. Prior to this my GP had suggested a possible diagnosis and recommended medication that might help. However, I wanted a more natural, long term solution so I decided to seek nutritional advice. After my free consultation, I was confident that Martina could help and I felt really positive about getting to the root cause of my symptoms. I found her approachable, empathetic and extremely knowledgeable. She was thorough and really took the time to understand my concerns. She also suggested tests to help look at my digestive functions and helped to arrange these. Martina also took into account aspects of my lifestyle in addition to my nutrition and I liked this holistic approach. I cannot thank Martina enough for her support and guidance. I found the nutritional and wellness plans clear and Informative and they were a useful reference. The recommendations were easy to implement and suggestions for certain products, and where to get them from, were very helpful. Martina also offered clear explanations and nutritional theory behind her recommendations, which I really appreciated. I have benefited a lot from the changes I have made and my symptoms are now under control. I have also learnt so much about my nutrition and lifestyle and I feel well informed to make choices that will benefit my overall health and well-being going forward. I’m so happy that Martina has helped me to achieve this through natural additions to my diet and lifestyle, without the need for medication or supplements. I would recommend Martina without hesitation, my only regret is that I didn’t contact her sooner."
"This was my first time having nutritional sessions and I found talking to Martina very easy and pleasant. She always had a warm and cheery disposition, she listened to me and encouraged me to work with my own body and view my progress in a positive way rather than being hard on myself. She was able to understand what I needed and where I was at with my nutritional needs. The supplements she suggested were of excellent quality and I felt the difference in my health from taking them. I also have lots of recipe ideas suggested for me in my plan that I can keep going back to and use in my own time. I found Martina very knowledgeable and she would explain things to me very clearly. I would highly recommend Martina."
"I have found Martina very approachable and extremely knowledgeable. She always responds to me as an individual and not in a general way. She always appears sensitive and responds to questions and difficulties. I would highly recommend her for Nutritional advice and support."
"I had two pregnancies in two years and gained over six stone above my normal weight. I was very hormonal and could not shift any weight which affected my wellbeing. I knew I did not want to be so overweight so decided to invest in myself to find a solution. I found Martina by researching the best therapist in nutrition. I had 3 sessions with Martina. She has changed my mindset and lifestyle for the better by educating on how my body works, why my body was struggling and uncovered inflammation along with low key nutrients. Martina knowledge and guidance is helping me restore my body back to being fit and healthy again. My energy and hormones are more balanced. I would highly recommend Martina to anyone who wants to better their health. She is fantastic and so professional with deep compassion. By investing in Martina, she gave me the keys to unlock an investment into my own health and happiness. Thank you Martina."
"I consulted Martina following a flare up of diverticulitis. I realised that I needed to alter my diet to a much healthier and balanced one but I needed help and guidance on how to begin to make these changes. I followed Martina's advice on which supplements I would benefit from taking and on how to alter my diet and, from the start, I've noticed improvements in my digestive system and overall well-being. Martina is friendly and approachable, offers practical advice tailored to your own circumstances and encourages you to keep going, at your own pace, with the changes you are making. Her guidance has enabled me to change my whole approach to my diet and lifestyle that has resulted in making me feeling the healthiest and happiest I have in a long time. I found Martina to be friendly and understanding and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs help and guidance with their nutritional and dietary requirements."
"Martina helped me to perceive my food intake in a completely new way. The strength of the plan suggested by Martina was that we were able to discuss ways to make my diet palatable to me rather than having to eat foods I didn’t like. It was fascinating to find out more about how my body works and try to redress the balance so that it works more efficiently."
"I came across Martina when I was conducting my own research into my condition. I received no help or advice from my GP, even though I mentioned my symptoms several times, so I decided to take matters into my own hands. I made contact through a professional website link, it gave you several options of fully qualified professionals to chose between. I chose Martina as I felt her qualifications and expertise best suited my needs. Martina made contact and she was the first person I spoke to who understood my condition and explained to me what the affect it was having on my body. I was sorted out with the relevant tests so she was able to do a thorough assessment of what was going on and to recommend the best course of action to fix/alleviate my condition. Without her vast knowledge and professionalism, I’d have still been in a situation where I was in pain and feeling extreme fatigue! I’m am grateful for everything she has done to help me recover. I would recommend her services without any hesitation. She is exceptional at what she does."
"Working with Martina help me address in an expedient way certain issues regarding my poor gut health. With Martina’s help and recommendations, the problems were addressed and cured – without the need to resort to any medication or antibiotics. I am extremely grateful for her intervention, and would recommend her to anyone with nutritional, dietary, stomach or gut issues."
"Working with Martina has been a wonderful journey. She has really helped me to understand my nutritional needs and the importance of balancing hormones and gut health through my food choices and supplements. Martina is extremely easy to talk to and very professional, and her knowledge of nutritional science is second to none. Before reaching out to Martina I was overwhelmed and confused by all the information we are presented with on a daily basis about how we should eat and manage our wellbeing. Martina really helped me to understand the fundamental aspects of this, and I now feel armed with the knowledge that the food choices I make are the correct ones for me. I wholeheartedly recommend Martina to anyone who needs help and guidance to improve and understand their nutritional and dietary requirements."
"I contacted Martina for help with what seemed like a complex health issue. It had been troubling me for years, had seen me in A&E several times and had perplexed numerous doctors and consultants. Within a matter of weeks her health advice has seen a total turn around in my health and wellbeing. I recommend her to you without hesitation. She will support, guide and make the very complex area of nutrition crystal clear. What seemed like an impossible situation has been resolved thanks to her professionalism and very broad knowledge of health and nutrition. I will be forever grateful to her."
"Engaging with Martina is so easy, first of all Martina's web site is so informative with useful tips and articles, which gave me confidence to arrange the initial consultation. I have now held several video consultations with Martina, and clearly Martina understands nutritional science therefore the advice has a sound science base, particularly advise on essential supplements to assist me to improve my gut health. But the advice I have received from Martina on diet and food preparation has been invaluable and completely changed my daily diet so that I am actually cooking really healthy food every-day, which is actually enjoyable. In a few words, Martina has changed my daily behaviour, and my health in just a couple of months"
"I was blown away at the quality of advice Martina gave me on my diet and supplements. It was personal and extremely thorough at every stage. I’m already seeing so many benefits since going to her. I wholeheartedly recommend her friendly and efficient service."
"I approached Martina for help with nutrition and a balanced lifestyle, regarding a structured approach to breakfast and meal times. My busy work schedule and fast food habits needed to be addressed. Martina's technique was extremely welcoming and it is obvious she has a wealth of knowledge on the subject and was helpful from day one. The plan she put together for me yielded improvements immediately and has given me the platform to take it forward. Any previous acid reflux and bloating issues were replaced with greater energy and better sleep. I would wholly recommend Martina for any nutritional and dietary help."
"I have suffered from memory problems, a poor quality of sleep, raised cholesterol and a general high level of stress for a few years. I have been working with Martina for over 2 years now, she has advised me to have a variety of health tests, She has also offered advice on diet and supplements, I have removed various food groups and introduced a variety of new foods to help my body. I now have a 3 monthly appointment with her. Martina has helped me feel more focused during the day, help maintain my memory to a reasonable standard and I do have now more restful sleep at night."
"I have been on a journey with Martina for six months and I can say that she really knows what she is doing and the advice she is giving. She has helped me change my lifestyle and I feel much better inside and out than I have at the beginning of my journey. I have understood how to understand and feel my body and lost weight not through harsh dieting but through changing my habits and how I fuel my body. I strongly recommend Martina as she is very kind and knowledgeable in Nutrition and will definitely change your lifestyle if you do put in the effort and really want a positive change in your journey. Thank you again Martina!"
"Thank you for your time, care and attention throughout the year. My GP was most unhelpful and put me on prescription drugs which did not help at all. You asked constructive questions and devised diagnostic tests to get to the root cause of the problem and then set about solving it. Thank you so much, I would be happy to recommend your services to anyone. Best wishes, David in Kent."
""Martina has been instrumental in turning around my life. She carried out an in depth analysis of my lifestyle including diet, eating/ drinking habits and work routine. She provided much needed advice that when followed allowed me to balance my life/ work schedule. Martina also provided nutritional advice mixed with a more relaxed training regime that has resulted in a new happier me a full one stone heavier - Achieved in less than 5 months. I now cook meals with my wife who has also adopted a revised diet/ work out regime and she has dropped 5 dress sizes so far, Martina thank you"."
"When I came to see Martina for nutritional advice, I was keen to eat food to help my eye condition and to lose some weight. Martina was wonderfully helpful, without being pushy, which was refreshing and I felt I could manage many of her suggestions. I have made a pleasing and gradual loss of weight, and most importantly there has been some improvement in my vision due to eating kale, spinach, sweetcorn and red peppers amongst other food stuffs. Overall I am feeling much healthier. Thank you again, Susie"
"If you, like me, have Thyroid and Auto Immune health concerns then please do book an appointment with Martina. Martina advised me on the foods to eat and the foods to avoid along with recipes. She also offered information on the supplements to take and her recommended suppliers. I arranged and had her suggested blood tests in order to dig a little deeper into my Thyroid condition. I still have follow up appointments to guide me forward on my own continuing health journey. Martina is kind, knowledgeable, thorough and caring and I cant recommend her highly enough."
"I went to see Martina to help with dry skin and low back pain following menopause. Martina is very thorough during consultations to ensure she provides the most appropriate advice for you.
