“I was referred to Christel following years of issues and ultimately a period of illness that floored me. The consultant diagnosed me and my condition has now, thankfully, greatly improved. On this journey i was also diagnosed with IBS. This led me to Christel. Prior to meeting Christel and working with her I had all of the following issues: excessive gas, burping, flatulence and it was particularly offensive, I had constant Diarrhoea and in the mornings I was always running for the toilet. I had excruciating pain in my bowels, between my groin and belly button. It would feel like I was being stabbed with red hot pokers or as if someone had grabbed my intestines and was twisting and wringing them out. Headaches, migraines, dizziness amongst others. Initial consultation with Christel was great, she’s very friendly and immediately put me at ease, especially when talking about all things “poo” related. She understands and never judges. At no point did I feel embarrassed or uncomfortable. She asks great questions, that when answering and talking I found that I was realising so much about my diet and my symptoms and how they were related. I started a journey going on the low FODMAP diet. It’s not a diet it’s about controlling what kind of foods you eat. You are provided with books that help you understand what to exclude and what you can and can’t eat. This is a great help. Then after following this first for about 6 weeks, guess what, “ALL” the symptoms i mentioned went! I was feeling great and I said things like “is this what normal feels like? “ along this journey I have had no issues reoccurring and when I have eaten something that I now know my body doesn’t like I recognise it immediately and I can take the steps to calm my body over the following days. You go through a process of reintroducing food types and I promise you, when you start to do it and your body doesn’t like it. You know about it. But how great is that, you have an answer. The whole process you are supported and guided by Christel. She’s there on email and phone when you need her and then of course at your consultations. You will feel at ease with her and from my experience she’s a complete professional and has helped me find my problem and now I have I feel great. Thank you Christel, I can’t recommend you more highly enough. “
