The Avoca Naturopath and Nutritionist

Below are shared experiences from the Avoca Naturopath & Nutritionist community of clients and the positive experiences created.  

 

 Before seeing Diana I had been on the Pill for over 10 years. Once I decided to go off the Pill I did not get a period. I left this for over a year (thinking it would come back) before I went to see a GP. I was told that this was normal and that I should have an ultrasound to see if I had poly-cystic ovaries (PCO). The ultrasound confirmed that this was the case. My GP said that I would not get my period back, there was nothing I could do about this and if/when I wanted to have a baby I would have to take injections of Clomid to stimulate ovulation – I was 26 years old. 

Unhappy with this prognosis, a friend (thankfully) referred me to Diana. She gave me liquid herbs and within 6 weeks I had my period back and within a year I had regular 28 day cycles each month. Diana also prescribed me with some herbs to combat painful periods due to PCO and now I have no pain at all! I could not recommend Diana more highly, to any woman who is having difficulty with PCO or periods generally. She is extremely knowledgeable, know’s what works and most of all is caring and kind to all of her patients.

I first consulted Diana as I was feeling low in energy and rundown. She was wonderful and did a very comprehensive assessment addressing my lifestyle and diet and recommending relaxation techniques, as well as supplements. She is a 5 star Naturopath!

I’ve seen a number of naturopaths over the years.  I’d been struggling with weight fluctuations for a number of years and couldn’t find any answers that helped me understand the cause.  Diana was amazing at quickly being able to identify a number of underlying health issues and worked out a treatment plan that suited my hectic lifestyle.  I successfully lost weight, regained my energy and resolved my depression.

I’ve been working with Diana over the years on a number of health issues including major surgery, menopause and hormonal weight gain. She is the most non judgemental and supportive health professional I’ve ever worked with.

I have greatly appreciated Diana’s expertise and the genuine care that she offers. I saw Diana at a time when I had fallen into becoming a passive recipient of medical interventions. She took a holistic view of my situation and supported me through my diet, exercise and managing my stress. I’ll always be grateful for the light she bought to a difficult time.

Diana is a beautiful caring person. Her dedication to helping others with her holistic approach and advise is invaluable. She has seen both myself and my daughter. I also love the high quality supplements for support. I would highly recommend seeing Diana.

Diana is amazing. I stumbled across Diana by word of mouth and she is such a passionate, beautiful soul and listens to your every concern. After nearly 4 weeks of seeing her im feeling like a new person. So much more energy and my auto immune disease has settled dramatically using natural/herbal medicines which i never thought possible. I am a happier and healthier mumma thanks to Diana. Cant recommend her enough.

Diana has addressed a number of health concerns and issues and has best prepared my family with a healthy strong immunity through herbal, practitioner based treatments. We have had nine years of flu-free winters, and although we lead busy lives still manage to feel energetic and have a positive outlook on our overall well being. 

Diana is attentive to our needs at all times and ensures she has a complete knowledge of her clients background and lifestyle to best diagnose recommendations for their treatment plan. Her expertise, genuine care, professionalism and support is ongoing and we are truly thankful to be part of the Avoca naturopath family.

I was diagnosed with Post Viral Fatigue/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. After finding out I was pregnant with my third child, I was still suffering with a list of symptoms and ongoing fatigue. Being concerned of how this would affect myself and unborn child I made an appointment with Diana and after 6 months I can not only say that I am symptom free, I have also recently given birth to a very healthy baby girl. I cannot thank you enough for your help in giving me my health and happiness back as well as educating me along the way with healthier natural alternatives for myself and family. You have been a blessing for not only myself but my children as they now have their old mum back!

Diana has helped me enormously to manage my menopause symptoms over a number of years. Thanks to her skills and knowledge I have been able to avoid taking the HRT route, which I really didn’t want to do. At times my symptoms have re-emerged and become quite severe, but Diana has always been able to suggest alternative strategies and medications that have slowly but surely brought back equilibrium. As well as being highly skilled, she is also warm, caring and understanding – all of which are very important qualities in a health practitioner. I’m extremely grateful to have had her working with me during this challenging phase of my life.

 Our first visit to Diana’s practice – Avoca Naturopath – was nine years ago. The week prior our baby daughter had just experienced a respiratory arrest in a doctors’ surgery and was whisked away in an ambulance. Her prognosis was good with the aid of ongoing prednisone and other chemical based medications. Reluctant and determined not to dose my baby with chemicals I sought Diana’s help. She treated my daughter with natural herbal remedies and resolved the cause of the issue as well as the immediate symptoms. In the months after, Diana worked with my daughter to build her immunity and respiratory system strength. Thankfully this ensured prevention of a repeat episode and my daughter is now a healthy ten year old.

I was diagnosed with stomach cancer. I was treated with chemo and surgery to remove my stomach which left with me many digestive and bowel issues.  This was what lead me to find Diana. At the first consultation, I was impressed that Diana had taken the time to learn more of my surgery, what my body was going through and what it needed. She helped me to implement some changes and added some digestive aids. Very quickly my health began to improve.

Diana and I have now been working together on my health for several years. Not only on my post cancer issues, which have sometimes been a little unique, but also helping me to keep my mind and body healthy and positive. Diana’s knowledge and recommendations have been invaluable to me and I credit her with helping me to find my ‘new’ normal. I highly recommend Diana to anyone who is looking to improve, not only their health, but their overall wellbeing. As I believe, like me, you will never look back.

Diana has used her expertise to prescribe supplements and herbal remedies that have eliminated my migraines and walked me through an individual detox program which gave me greater energy, inner health and a much brighter outlook on my daily life. I also participated in a collaborative two week ‘spring clean’ detox hosted by Diana and her colleagues. This was a fun way of kick starting spring with my family and friends in a group environment and lose those pesky last couple of kg’s ready for summer.

It all started when Diana cured me of cold sores. I went through a period of having 1 outbreak a month and since seeing Diana I’ve had 4 cold sores in 4 years. Then my partner and I did the 6 week detox. Not only did we feel amazing but we learnt skills to maintain a healthier lifestyle. Diana has supported us through both of our pregnancies of 2 healthy girls. Your gentle approach leaves me feeling positive and achievable goals give me confidence to be the healthiest version of myself. Thank you for everything.

My husband and I had been trying for eighteen months to fall pregnant. During that time I had miscarried at eleven weeks and I was very conscious of both my age as well as my husband’s and worrying about whether we had left the conception of our second child too late. I was referred to Diana and my life took a distinctly positive turn! The six week detox she put me on initially gave me a sense of health and energy I hadn’t felt for a very long time, as well as the added bonus of a 10kg weight loss and significant improvement on my bio-impedance results as the years dropped off my biological age. Diana’s advice, compassion and support helped me to sustain a new way of thinking about the food I eat as well as helping me to develop a renewed sense of self confidence. Five months after meeting Diana I fell pregnant and am currently at the nineteen week mark, non-so-patiently waiting for the birth of my baby. I regularly credit Diana’s assistance with my health as one of the significant factors in the conception of my baby and I can’t thank her enough for the support she has given me through this time.

Diana was a very kind and straight talking practitioner which is what I needed after three years of trying for another baby with different naturopaths all saying that they could achieve what we wanted no problem. Diana knew we were starting the IVF process, and instead of trying to do what obviously wasn’t going to happen naturally, she said I can support you through this process and offer ideas and suggestions on your diet and vitamins and emotional journey when you need support in these areas. We worked together on all these without any pressure and then when I fell pregnant she supported my pregnancy with supplements and diet ideas that helped my body and the growing baby. I would definitely recommend Diana as I find her honest, easy to talk to, and always able to listen to me when I told her what was and wasn’t working for me.  Result: healthy, bouncing baby girl. Thanks Diana.
