"I have suffered from fibromyalgia for over 14 years. I have been to my GP many times and always left with more painkillers, stronger ones. I could not do so many things with the constant pain and also not being able to sleep. I also suffered from acid reflux and was advised to take over-the-counter remedies.
Then I discovered Ayurveda and Alison has changed my life unbelievably. I have said to her "You have given me back my life". I followed all the advice and Ayurveda treatments Alison prescribed. It took time but I stayed with the treatment. Now, after 5 months, my ayurvedic remedies are being reduced and I am still pain-free. I trust Alison and she is always available if I have any concerns. I now have lots of energy, sleep every night, acid reflux has gone and best of all I am completely pain-free. I have no hesitation in recommending Alison and Ayurvedic medicine."
"When I started with Alison, I would describe my state as a classic pitta-aggravated male with a work-life imbalance, which manifested itself as an overindulgence in eating and carrying an additional few pounds. This accumulated over several years and ultimately translated into physical lower back and neck pains. I also struggled with odorous sweat. More worrying was I found that I was living in a constant fight/flight mode which was adding to my stress/anxious state of mind and found myself in a constant state of frustration.
What I found very refreshing is Alison’s holistic approach to her treatment. I would get impatient in the past, looking for instant results/gratification. Working with Alison taught me I could achieve the results I wanted but I was about to embark on a journey of enlightenment.
She started with advising me on several natural remedies to supplement my diet (which really resonated with me and very quickly eliminated the strong odour with my sweat). To compliment this treatment plan she looked at my diet and made recommendations on food groups that would help me on my path. She setup a regular exercise regime (I love my sports but tended to overdo it… all or nothing approach) and within weeks I was feeling incredible. This early success really created a snowball effect and before I knew it, I was starting to practice mindfulness and bringing this practice into my daily work/life to create a more serene version of myself.
I can honestly say this journey has been transformative. Not only have I lost the few pounds I set out to lose, I also carry less emotional baggage and think/act more coherently. It is one thing to do a 3-4 week cleanse and get ‘instant results’ (what I have done in the past), it’s another thing to transform and sustain a healthy lifestyle.
Alison is incredible at what she does. Her constant reassurance and energy she brings to her work is infectious. She passionately cares about people and really took time to ensure that the results I obtained weren’t a “quick-fix”, but the first steps taken into a journey to inform a new pain-free version of myself. I am blown away by her knowledge and ability to tailor a specific program that has really transformed how I feel and my outlook on life. All this despite my cynical attitude (at the onset of the program). I can’t recommend her services and approach to life enough."
"I've been on this ayurvedic journey for 6 months now, with Alison as my trusted guide. I first contacted Alison amidst the symptoms of a severe flare of ulcerative colitis, an inflammatory bowel disease of auto-immune origin. What started as a cry for rescue in a rapidly deteriorating health situation has built to a new way of life for me. My ayurvedic remedies and dietary choices, all carefully recommended for me personally, perfectly complement and assist the hospital treatments I receive. I firmly believe that this harmonious partnership of remedies, and how Alison has supported my mindset and emotional journey is why I feel so much more well than I did a year ago. Alison gathers the information she needs in order to support me and imparts her depth of knowledge and areas for improvement with such warmth and empathy and kindness that I look forward to every consultation, and am constantly uplifted. I always feel so seen, heard and valued as she accompanies me on this journey discovering how the choices I make can nourish my whole being. Alison is a consummate professional, with the heart of an angel, who continues to follow and learn as she leads and shares the wonder of treatment that has changed my life."
"I had been struggling with heartburn for years, which then evolved into acid reflux and inflammation within the body. I was tired of being prescribed 2 week treatments that never sorted the issue and didn't want to go onto long term over the counter treatments. Alison helped me because instead of treating she went with a preventative treatment by helping me change my diet to something that suited my body but also by helping me understand to treat the mind as well as and understanding how the body is all linked. The relief of not being in pain everyday and being afraid of eating or not eating has been wonderful. A truly transformative experience."
From the moment I spoke to Alison I felt very comfortable, heard & supported. She has a beautiful way of connecting with you and this only intensified through our contact. I felt very supported and encouraged through the journey.
Alison suggested various herbs, diet and lifestyle changes to encourage a balance of hormones and digestion. My cycle had been missing for a couple of months and I was concerned I may be going through an early menopause. Alison assured me it would return and within 2 months of following her guidance, I was back to regular 29 days.
The changes also went much deeper, my spiritual practice deepened, I had insights, much more trust and confidence and an overall feeling of wellness, peace and joy.
Thank you to Alison for all her love, her support, her advice. I would highly recommend her to bring you to centre, balance and optimal living.
