Healing Naturally Success Stories

What people say

Given me my live back

I have been living with what I thought was IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) for years. You name it and I have tried it. I have spent a lot of money on trying out different things. 

A couple of people I trust referred me to Hazel and now I’m feeling the best I have in years.  With Hazel’s help, we worked out what was really going on with my gut health. I am now eating more food types than I was before and it is definitely easier for me to go places again. Thank you so much Hazel. You have given me my life back.

Pain free at last

I presented to Hazel with a few stomach problems. I had spent the last 12 months on many different antibiotics and other medications, which had taken a huge toll on my body. Within a couple of months, Hazel had me pain-free which had not happened in over 4 years. I am forever thankful. The reports given were very self-explanatory and easy for me to follow. Thank you, Hazel, for your calming nature, support and understanding. I would highly recommend Hazel to anyone.

Sound advice

I’ve always been pretty mindful of what I eat and drink, but having Hazel as a sounding board has been incredibly beneficial. In making a few subtle changes, I have been amazed at the difference it has made to my general wellbeing and would recommend Hazel to anyone looking to improve their health via nutrition. In providing sound nutritional advice, she also instills a sense of accountability which encourages you to do better and break bad habits. I can’t speak highly enough of Hazel and the advice she provides!

My lifestyle changed for the better

I must say that after nearly 4 months of dealing with Hazel, my lifestyle has completely changed for the better! For the first time in ages, I’ve felt happier, healthier and more in control. After dealing with a gradual decline in energy and constantly falling ill throughout winter, the program she put me on was very helpful in making me aware and accountable for eating healthy foods and the right foods for my body, which has instantly resulted in my body thanking me for making the change. Hazel has a high level of professionalism and knowledge, but at the same time talks to you with such sincerity. I felt the compassion and energy she puts into her work. I would definitely recommend to anyone to approach Hazel at Healing Naturally.

More than five stars

If I could give Hazel more than five stars, I would. She has been amazing in helping me achieve my goals. I lost 15kgs in 6 weeks and have kept it off. I am sleeping better and have more energy and focus during the day. Hazel made the whole process easy and kept me on track. Thank you.

I first started seeing Hazel around a year ago. At that point in my life, my health had gone extremely downhill – with no help from any doctor. I had extreme gut issues, I was in constant pain, could barely eat, and even water made me feel sick, which led to mood swings and severe fatigue. This carried on for about 2 and a half years – until I met Hazel. Hazel could see what kind of state I was in, sat down and talked over everything with me, and since that day, has offered me nothing but help and support. Hazel was able to assist me with getting the right testing my body needed, helped with diagnoses, intolerances and put together a treatment programme. Her determination and support to get me back on track amazed me. Today, I feel better than I ever have and this is all thanks to Hazel. Even when I wanted to give up, Hazel pushed and encouraged me to let me know that soon I would feel better. I still have regular catch-ups with Hazel and she is always checking in on me. As I said, her support is like no other and I know if it was not for her, I would not be where I am today. If you are needing help with any issues, I can not recommend her enough.

Extra mile

I first started seeing Hazel in April this year after experiencing digestive problems (excess wind) and suffering from mid-morning headaches if my breakfast lacked sufficient protein. Hazel was very caring, professional, knowledgeable and thorough, and I liked her holistic approach. She diagnosed a blood-sugar imbalance and prepared a treatment plan which included lifestyle changes. Nothing was too much trouble for Hazel and I believe she always went the extra mile. Now my digestive problems and headaches have disappeared and I am once again in control of my body instead of my body being in control of me.

Positive changes in my health

Hazel has been fantastic at helping me on my journey of healing my gut and getting my autoimmune disease (which she also helped get a diagnosis for) into remission . I went to Hazel after being brushed off by doctors regarding stomach pain, food intolerances and hypothyroidism. She recognised I could have the autoimmune disease Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and sent me off for the tests which confirmed it. A few months in and my antibodies have come down and I have noticed really positive changes in my health.

Healthier outlook

I am in my mid 50’s and went to Hazel initially as I had been gaining weight steadily since stopping smoking. I had other issues which I had put down to my age, such as flatulence, general tiredness (making it so difficult to get up in the morning) and cravings for sweet food which was unusual for me as I have always preferred savoury food. I wanted to be proactive about being well and having a healthy weight to take me into the future. I was very skeptical to begin with but thought, “nothing else has worked so far so I have to give this a go. It would cost me less than replacing my entire wardrobe”.

Following a hair sample test, Hazel guided me through the results from which my personalised protocol or plan was developed. Hazel explained things that could be done to deal with the issues identified to improve my gut health and general wellbeing through dietary changes and some lifestyle adjustments.

Detoxifying and changing my diet has changed everything. Believe me, it has taken some will power, but it has all been worth it. Not long into the process, I noticed I was sleeping better and waking up fresher – not bouncing out of bed, but definitely fresher. The flatulence has gone away and I am back to functioning normally. The weight I had gained is slowly and surely coming off and I am getting closer to my goal weight each week. I have adopted a healthier outlook toward nourishing myself and am determined to carry this into the future with me.

I would recommend Hazel to others who would really like some personalised guidance and support to achieve health or weight goals.

Added bonus

I first starting seeing Hazel just over a year ago. I was feeling extremely sluggish and was constantly bloated. On top of that, my blood pressure was slowly creeping up and if it continued, my doctor was going to prescribe pills for high blood pressure. I was very impressed with Hazel’s thoroughness and genuine concern to get me well again. I found her to be very knowledgeable, especially in areas of thyroid issues and autoimmune diseases. Hazel identified my health issues and prepared a treatment plan for me to follow. After following the plan, and with Hazel’s guidance, I am no longer bloated and I have more energy. My blood pressure has dropped and, as an added bonus, I lost 10 kilos. Thank you, Hazel.

Success at last

Hazel was our last resort in the treatment of our 5-year old’s eczema and I wish she had been our first! Hazel has successfully dealt with the cause of our son’s eczema, instead of throwing steroids and emollients at us and sending us on our way! She was genuinely interested and spent a lot of energy in getting to know not only her patient but our family’s way of life. At times it was difficult, but we were well supported during her treatment plan, and in the gentle transition to a different diet. Hazel was easily accessible and encouraging. Now, there’s no more eczema and our son is a much happier lad! Thanks, Hazel xx.

Great knowledge

Thanks, Hazel. I have been to nutritionists before but never had the amount of medical information relating to me detailed like this. I really appreciate your knowledge.

~ Karen

Amazingly thorough

I appreciate the comprehensive report and work you have put in. Amazingly thorough. The process with you has been easy.

~ Rachel

Highly recommended

I highly recommend Hazel. Our 18-month-old boy was catching colds plus bronchiolitis, and was ill more than he was well. After the initial consultation, we were placed on a dietary plan that has improved his and our quality of life.

~ Natasha

Professional and courteous

I sought help from Hazel as I had difficulty with lack of energy, my blood sugars were not balanced and I had plateaued with my weight loss. I also had signs of arthritis developing in my hands. Hazel was very professional and courteous throughout our contact. She clearly and fully explained all information and recommendations she gave me. She monitored my progress and was very supportive. As a result of our work together, I have managed to stabilise my blood sugars, feel satiated, have lost 16kg in five months – and not put the weight back on. I am very grateful to Hazel and thank her for her professional and personal approach.
