Healing Nutrition Success Stories

Highly recommended Hazel, our 18 month old boy was catching colds plus bronciolitis and was ill more than he was well. After the initial consultation we were placed on dietary plan that has improved his and our quality of life.

I first started seeing Hazel around a year ago. At that point in my life, my health had gone extremely down hill – with no help from any doctor.  I had extreme gut issues, I was in constant pain, could barely eat, even water made me feel sick which led to mood swings and severe fatigue. This carried on for about 2 and 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 I soon, will 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.

I first started seeing Hazel in April this year after experiencing digestive problems (excess wind) and suffering from headaches mid-morning 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.

Hazel has been fantastic at helping me on my journey of healing my gut and getting my autoimmune disease into remission (which she also helped get a diagnosis for). I went to Hazel after being brushed off by doctors regarding stomach pain and food intolerances and also 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.

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 me 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.

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 & 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 & 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 as the same time talks to you with such sincerity. I felt the compassion and energy she puts into her work. I would definitely recommend anyone to approach Hazel at Healing Nutrition.

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 – Hastings

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

Natasha – Hawke’s Bay

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 a healthy weight to take me in to the future.
I was very sceptical 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 its all been worth it. Not long in to 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 in to the future with me.

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

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 sons 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, no more eczema and our son is a much happier lad! Thanks Hazel xx.

I began working with Hazel in April of this year. I sought help from Hazel as I had difficulty with lack of energy, my blood sugars were not balanced and I had plateaud 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 with me and was very supportive. As a result of our work together I have managed to stabilise my blood sugars, feel satiated and 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.
