I initially went to see Dee to see whether I could control my PMS symptoms (mood swings & anger) - avoiding the ‘antidepressants’ route. To my surprise, after only 2 sessions and implementing the changes to my diet and lifestyle that Dee had suggested (as well as a vitamin supplement), my mood was much more manageable.
Now a few months later, it’s actually not a problem anymore, I am much more calm, and have a lot more energy. As a result, the whole family, not just myself, have benefited from Dee’s help! I would certainly recommend Dee to anyone.

Dee knew before any GP that my issues were caused by hormones. Now that I have a diagnosis of endometriosis she is who I have gone back to for help and advice. She is so supportive and has really tailored her approach to suit me, my lifestyle, and my needs. I would recommend her to anyone!

I went for the GP blood tests today and it happened to be my diabetic nurse that took them…. was expecting her to be a bit peeved that I hadn’t taken them (prescribed medication for diabetes) and gone elsewhere for advice….She weighed me and said “oh gosh well something’s working you’ve really lost some weight”. She said she thought my Nutritionist sounded amazing to keep trying what I was doing, it made total sense to her. That probably 10 years ago my thyroid would have been classified as a problem by the GP but that the boundaries have decreased. She asked me who you were as her sister has low level thyroid issues that are not classified as an issue by the NHS but that are having a negative affect...

PJ - Part 1

My HbA1c in December (after I’d been calorie counting and generally doing the ‘eat right plate’) was 57, this is when the diabetic nurse first suggested I go on the tablets that have a side effect of thrush. She said the target for me was 48, this seemed impossible as I felt I was trying so hard already. My result today, after roughly just 6 or 7 weeks doing what you’ve said (and not 100% perfectly) is 46!!
I am absolutely delighted!! And surprised!! I just obviously need to keep doing what I’m doing.I seriously cannot thank you enough. I know I am still on a journey but I know feel like I’m on the right path. So glad I didn’t take those extra tablets and contacted you instead.

PJ - Part 2 (7 days later)

Prior to my experience of working with Dee at Optimised I was suffering from terrible gastro-intestinal discomfort and symptoms. This was having a profound impact on my health and general well-being, I wasn’t myself and I wasn’t able to do the things I enjoyed. Since seeing Dee I am at the peak of wellness, fitness and strength and I can’t recommend her expertise enough. A fantastic investment in my wellness, health and knowledge.

For years I have struggled with stomach discomfort and sinus issues and more recently my stress levels have risen due to work and study commitments. My stomach has had a dramatic turnaround now that I better understand some of the triggers which had previously caused discomfort. The sessions continue to be an education and even though I’m still a work in progress, I know that with Dee’s guidance I can continue on a healthy path.

Rich

When I came to Optimised I was unknowingly suffering with SIBO and an under active Thyroid. I cannot thank Optimised enough and have already recommended Aga to my friends and family. I feel that this is the future of health and a lot of ill health today has unfortunately been misdiagnosed.

Working with Optimised has been an amazing experience and not only am I happy with the results I feel I have also gained an education in the meantime.

The detox is going well - mentally I’ve never felt happier. Initially it was tough physically due to illness, but I finally think physically I’m starting to feel the benefits too. I’m slowly getting into cooking different food and loving it, and I feel like I would love to keep this up past January.

So a HUGE thanks for this, it’s been a really big learning curve. Amongst other things it’s stopped me picking at rubbish food and given me the motivation to start yoga again.

Rosie Clarke

I was suffering from huge slumps in energy in the day and struggling to have the energy to train regularly and keep my weight low which is very important for a cyclist. The nutrition plan that Dee gave me allowed me to lose body fat whilst increasing strength & fitness. At the same time I was able to maintain my weight without feeling hungry or getting energy slumps. In the race itself I performed much better than anticipated, something I couldn’t have achieved without the help of the Nutritional Therapy team at Optimised Personal Wellness.
