TESTIMONIAL – Glenys Collins After what seemed like months of feeling incredibly below par; burnt out; generally unwell & tired I went to see Glenys with regard to my lifestyle & diet. Glenys was incredibly professional – I filled out a pre-consultation questionnaire so she was fully prepared to discuss my symptoms from the beginning. A very simple blood test & results later the same day revealed strong intolerances to certain foods. Glenys gave me many recommendations to follow. After less than a week of following these recommendations; taking (Juice Plus) supplements & eliminating certain foods from my diet – I felt SO much better!! Hugely better in fact! On my review appointment a month later I had lost half a stone with out attempting to diet; had so much more energy – running around on the tennis court was no longer a trauma & coping with a busy day with patients was no longer a problem; family & friends started to comment on how glowing & positive I seemed – plus my children commented that I was so much happier than I had been for a while!! I am still following Glenys’ advice, with the odd slip up here & there – but I can’t thank her enough for her help in giving me my health back!
