Client stories and testimonials
“After being diagnosed with Coeliac Disease, IBS and (years later) Graves Disease, I had tried everything you could possibly imagine for over 15 years. Every diet, every doctor and every naturopath had helped a little but never fully addressing the issue.
Being told I would probably need to have my thyroid taken out was the last straw. I’d basically given up hope but set myself a goal of healing my gut, keeping my thyroid, reducing the constant bloating, gas and pain that ruled my life for 15 years, and to get my weight under control.
What I discovered after starting work with Bella was that my gut was so wrecked it was barely functioning, but that I could heal myself and that it’s not all just about diet. It’s been almost 12 months but my bloating is almost entirely gone, my weight just fell off (without any exercise), I am mentally much happier and my thyroid isn’t going anywhere!
Bella’s attention to detail, unwavering support, amazing detailed knowledge and the ability to just pinpoint what no doctor had been able to made all the difference. She is kind, compassionate, caring, empathetic, respectful, knowledgable.
You gave me my power back and I can’t thank you enough for what you’ve done for me. Your’e brilliant and amazing xx.”

“Thank you for supporting myself – and others – the way you do. You are the first practitioner (for the want of a much better word) I have met in that awful labyrinth of sickness who I know can show me the exit. I still get lost sometimes and – boy – I would have liked a shortcut or two (and who wouldn’t?) – but I know I am finally on my way. You are my shining light I keep calibrating to. I so appreciate that you are open for me to introduce other modalities for support and that I can make the whole process fit me and my lifestyle.”

“I have suffered digestive complaints for decades and only decided to do something about it when I realised how it was impacting not only my health and energy, but my mental capacity, as it was sometimes all I could think about. It was all consuming and I became so frustrated by the fact that elimination diets, the apparent answer for IBS type illness, only lead to more confusion, and as many symptoms as before. Other health professionals, including multiple naturopaths, could not get to the root cause so my symptoms persisted, despite best efforts.
At my wits end, I found Bella online and she quickly became my favourite person because as soon as we went through my history and concerns, (which was a fairly long laundry list and had been bothering me for as long as I could remember, with no letting up), she made me realise my symptoms, of which were wide ranging (constipation, bloating, headaches, body aches, skin issues, etc.), weren’t as random as I thought and that I could be well.
A couple of tests gave her and I the answers I had been searching for for years. Why hadn’t I done this years ago? The healing protocol was clear and straight-forward, but detailed and well thought out and, importantly, specific to my needs. At this point I realised that I did need help as I was never going to be able to do it alone.
She gave me a way to control my symptoms that had been controlling me for as long as I can remember. Relief and sense of freedom is an understatement! I am more regular than ever before and I can finally exercise better and partake in other activities because I have more energy and less digestive troubles.
Bella is friendly, warm, caring and dedicated, as well as extremely knowledgeable and well researched – clear expert at the next level. Plus always being available for questions or concerns and providing real insight in these responses. Helping me understand the reasons why things were happening, even in the easy/quick questions, what to expect and letting me know that most of the things I was going through weren’t unexpected.
She is a real life saver, thankfully I don’t ever need to imagine where I would be without her!“
