We do not treat specific medical conditions; and we have to be careful even with reproducing genuine independent comments referring to them even in passing. We have therefore removed some positive details. Names and photos may also have been removed or changed for confidentiality.
In our initial consultation she identified possible causes of our son’s issues and recommended tests to investigate further. She also recommended a change of diet. Changing diets was potentially a challenge, but Lucinda had lots of suggestions and delicious and easy recipes for making this enjoyable and nutritious. The tests revealed a scientific picture of imbalances and some significant but treatable issues. This was the first time anyone had explained a clear picture of our son’s problems. She talked to us about how diet and supplements could help.
Her approach was the best news we had had for two and a half years! In a short space of time, our son began to sleep better, eat well, grow, play and wake up refreshed. He also began to run and play football, something he had never done before! Every day we see improvements and this is wonderful.”
Since then, through a combination of recommendations, we have seen a great change in his general health and happiness, and social and academic functioning. We are extremely grateful to Lucinda for her knowledge and kindness in helping us through something that some traditional medical practitioners had suggested could only be treated through medication.”
We made numerous visits to our Doctor, but he was not really interested and were more interested in offering me medication for what they described as his difficult behaviour, after I’d told him that he had difficulty concentrating at school, rather than all the other concerns that I mentioned. His school and teachers were equally uninterested. It was very hard as so many people would comment on what a great appetite he had and how lucky I was to have a child that ate so well. Whilst equally being told that he was an active boy who was just mischievous and that things would change as he grew up. Yet those people never saw the tears or him crashed out on the sofa after a day at school, while his friends were playing in the park or at football club. Lucinda met him and she was the first person that really listened to me and agreed that everything we were experiencing with him was not normal. She asked that we undertook some tests, which she arranged. The results came back that he had a parasite and an extremely inflamed gut. The symptoms of these were everything that we had noticed about him, but could not identify ourselves. Lucinda recommended supplements for him and told us that we needed to follow a strict food plan, which is called the GAPS Diet. This meant cutting out gluten, grains and sugar from his diet. Although it was extremely hard we followed Lucinda’s advice and nine months later he is 90% healed. The difference in him is amazing and he is now really thriving. We changed schools to give him a fresh start and he is working hard and making amazing progress. Our meeting with Lucinda has definitely changed the course of his life and for that we will always be extremely grateful to her.”
It has made a massive difference. She says she is so happy that she doesn’t get tummy aches any more and feels so much better that she doesn’t mind missing cheese and chocolate- which really shows me how rotten she must have been feeling before. She is now also on lots of daily supplements, recommended by Lucinda, to help build her strength up. I’m really excited about seeing what the changes in her life will be because of Lucinda. I feel not only that I can trust Lucinda completely but this whole experience has taught be to trust my instincts more and follow them when I have concerns about my children.”
As a bonus Lucinda also picked up on a weak foot and ankle issue (even though this was nothing to do with the original reason), which prompted a visit to the doctor and podiatrist and she is now finding running and sports much better too. We took my son who suffered acute head pains which the doctors investigated and found no real cause for. He was also having terrible trouble sleeping. A supplement that helped balance his blood sugar levels and increase Zinc and Magnesium has settled down both. We all have niggles which affect us as children, mine was my tummy, my Mum’s was earache and because they are not ‘illnesses’ they don’t get treated. What a blessing to be listened to and be able to change that. Thank you.”
He is calmer and more focused at home and school. He has friends and has started playing cricket, which he loves. More recently he has discovered a love of reading as his comprehension has come along in leaps and bounds. We can’t recommend Lucinda highly enough for all she has done for our son and our family.”
We were sent home none the wiser with her still in pain. I sent all the test results to Lucinda as soon as I returned home and she immediately suggested her bowel could be congested and inflamed. She suggested some alternative supplements to use and from then on my daughter’s pain has improved, and is now managed. We are now able to explore other avenues in our journey to support her.
On looking back to what my daughter has been through and where she is now it is like night and day. Lucinda has always been available to us at the drop of a hat. I would be happy to speak with you about the care Lucinda has given and continues to give.”
Lucinda is hardworking, trustworthy and shows empathy for the unfortunate position that we find ourselves to be in. Above all Lucinda actually cares, she really wants the best for our son and for that we will be forever grateful. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.”
In addition to changing my son’s eating habits, Lucinda’s ideas have inspired me to look at my own nutrition, and that of my daughter. My mother has also been on board. We have all cut sugar from our diets, and my mother and I both began eating meat again after many years as vegetarians. I have almost totally recovered from 30 years of sleep problems as a result, and my mother has noticed several health benefits too. I would enthusiastically recommend Lucinda to any family, and cannot thank her enough for her input in our journey.”
One great friend saw Lucinda because she was struggling to lose weight. Having followed Lucinda’s instructions and changed her diet she has lost weight and feels great. I could go on. Lucinda is a kind, considerate and most of all knowledgeable naturopath who has learned much of what she knows through personal experience making her especially sympathetic and helpful. She is exceptionally good with children.”
Within 6 months of my first meeting with Lucinda, her fantastic guidance and advice has not only helped me get back to a healthy weight, given me renewed energy, happiness, confidence and focus but above all my digestive problems are so nearly at an end that I now have the freedom to enjoy life without having my tummy dictate my every move. I couldn’t be happier! Finding Lucinda has by far been the single most beneficial step to my recovery, worth every penny and so so much more!”
Without the in-depth answers to both mine and my daughters health issues we would be living very different lives and possibly with diseases we’ve been able to curtail. We can not thank Lucinda enough. I would urge anyone with any health concerns to visit Lucinda it could and probably will change your life.”
Lucinda took a long and very detailed history and correctly diagnosed some food allergies and yeast problems and with the proper testing. Lucinda is hugely approachable and her cheerful yet calm manner offers real support throughout the appointments themselves but also through the treatment plan. She is incredibly knowledgeable and up to date on all the latest research and will not waste your time nor money on unnecessary appointments or testing unless she feels it valid and helpful. I cannot recommend her more strongly.”
