Client Success Stories
As a mother of three children under 5, I was very concerned when my son (4 1/2) had positive test results returned with Blastocystis Homnius, a very bad gut parasite. Summer was my answer. The results I have seen in my son, not only immediately but over the last few months have been amazing! Together we have eliminated his major ailments, his insomnia is non-existent.
I struggled with weight gain since having kids and tried all kinds of diets that just didn’t stick. As my weight increased, so did my unhealthy cholesterol levels. I didn’t want to go onto medication and was sick of yoyo diets. Summer made it easy for me to drop 17 kilos and maintain healthy cholesterol levels. She taught me good eating habits, with delicious recipes that my whole family enjoys. I feel like a new person with more energy and healthy habits I can maintain.
Summer was integral in the holistic approach of getting my son (3 years old) better (to remove several parasites, improve behaviour, heal and repair gut health and abdominal pain and increase energy levels). Summer is a lovely and caring person, whose heart is in the right place and genuinely wants to help heal people. She is very knowledgeable in all aspects of food. I would highly recommend Summer to anyone where the medical system has failed them like it did for my son.
