Bowel Problems and Cravings

Friday, January 28th, 2011

I really want to thank you for all your knowledge and help with handling my on going problem!

I am so amazed and still actually blown away that my symptoms have completely changed for the better. I honestly didn’t think it would be such an instant handling as I had been living with this problem for so long.
I feel that it is such an acknowledgment to myself also as I decided to take matters into my own hands and by doing so was also happy to know that what I thought created me a problem diet wise actually was!

I cannot tell you how much energy I have got it is amazing! Last night I was still up at midnight writing an e mail! That would never have happened a few weeks back, I think my husband is amazed too as I’m normally a zombie by 9!
The other funny thing is I am having practically no cravings either, I might fancy something but can easily forget about it too. The only desire today was to get rid of the gloves so my hands could actually breathe after the mineral handling! I have never experienced that feeling of being claustrophobic however my poor hands did a few times!!! Quite funny really especially when my friend emailed me calling me Michael Jackson with the white gloves!!

Anyway, Thank You Gunilla for everything. I think you are amazing and I am so happy and delighted with my results so far.

Lots of love

Digestive Problems – Burning Stomach

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

In the past I felt a bit numb in the morning and it would take me ages to “wake up”. Now, I a) sleep better, b) I wake up and feel good, energetic and not like “dragging the body around” and c) I feel fine the whole day, like my energy is spread across the whole day! So when I wake up in the morning after I’ve had a little bit to eat I feel absolutely awake, which I did not used to feel.

For example before coming to see you, anything I ate with pasta or pizza used to burn my stomach like crazy, once I even had just pancakes filled with ricotta and spinach and it was hell.

Today I ate a pizza and no trouble whatsoever! The pizza was a “Quattro Formaggi” which had tomato on it. Nothing, nada, niente, nichts! Truely unbelievable, it really was surreal as I was so cautious before eating it and was thinking “this is going to hurt”. When nothing happened I was just so so happy you have no idea! :-))

But you also need to know that I didn’t even take any enzymes! I did not take any during the 25 hours and on my way out forgot the pot, so this was even more amazing!!!

This treatment is truly unbelievable! I must say I haven’t felt this good in ages, and I really mean it. It’s almost odd because I really am not used to it. It’s like having a new car, after you have driven the old one for years. I need to get accustomed to this new feeling , because all habits crank in, like, “oh, well I am supposed to feel exhausted now usually” and then it doesn’t happen! And then later on in the day “oh and now I should feel pain” and it simply does not happen! And it is really, really, REALLY odd because I got so accustomed to “live with the discomfort” that it became a routine to “feel that way” and I had forgotten how it feels to feel well! Also my body feels lighter, like I got rid of shackles. It’s really odd as I’m not used to it. It is a wonderful feeling, I am LOVING IT! And my treatment is not yet over! I just can’t wait until I am done!
Thank you Gunilla for all the care, for your expertise and professionalism. You really know what you are doing and you do want results and that shows in all you do! You do get results! I am glad I made the choice to come and see you, it is worth all its while!!!! :-)) Thank you again a million, you are wonderful to work with!!!

Love,
G.C.

Hayfever

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

Summer, to me, means sneezing, sore eyes and endless antihistamine pills. This year (2009) I have been treated by Gunilla and I have been able to work in the garden, take the dog for walks in the country and I have not had a single antihistamine pill.

Thank you Gunilla for such a wonderful summer.

Weight Loss

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

Where to start?

When I first came to Gunilla over a year ago I was very introverted on my weight; my self esteem was at its lowest; and I was generally very depressed & lethargic.

Weight HAD been an issue all my life. With my weight roller coasting from being a trim (size 33”), to it being heavy (size 38”), with it generally hovering around 36”. I had tried pretty much every diet going. With short term success then slowly, insidiously the weight would creep back to where it was or in the case of the Cohen diet my weight ballooned out to the heaviest I’d ever been (44”).

I’d read various books (diet & medical) to try and get an understanding, I’d paid a fortune to see a Harley Street nutritionist, to no avail. I knew there had to be an answer to MY situation. I just hadn’t found it yet. It was around this time that I looked on Gunilla’s website & saw Metabolic Typing. After having done a little research on the net I contacted Gunilla with the view to addressing my diet and hence weight.

That was a year ago. I’ve now lost 16½kgs (or 36½lbs or size 44 down to 38!) and am well on my way to my target size (33-34). So although I’m still a work in progress I have total confidence that I will attain and MAINTAIN it. How can this be? Well. It hasn’t taken any sacrifice or effort to get where I am. That’s right. No starving myself, or counting calories, or exercising like a mad man, or only eating certain types of food and eliminating everything else, and no eating starvation rations.

In fact what I’ve learned is there are 3 things governing weight loss:

1. The right diet – Metabolic Typing, the right diet for YOUR metabolic type.
2. Blocking factors – those things either internally or environmentally which inhibit weight loss
3. Hormones
4. Allergies (NAET)

You’ll notice that most diets concentrate heavily on “1″ above. Some might mention “1& 2″ very few mention all 3.

The above weight loss has occurred since January this year! That’s right. I persisted for 8-9 months without getting any real tangible results (reduced waist size). Because item 3 wasn’t being addressed until then!

I used to live for food. I hadn’t even finished eating the meal I was having & I was already thinking about my next meal. I didn’t have a clue what was the right food, I just knew what I liked and what I didn’t like. And of course Friday nights being the end of the week was ALWAYS a curry night. And if I couldn’t be bothered cooking during the week I’d have another curry. I mean I could never have too much curry.

Now, although I prepare my meals for work I actually eat when I’m hungry and I ‘m not constantly thinking about food. As to a curry I can’t think of the last time I had one! Not as a sacrifice I just haven’t had the desire to have one. The other thing is: I’m no saint. I slip up now and then. The difference is I don’t beat my self up over it any more. I can acknowledge that I’ve slipped up and get back on the wagon without any hic-ups. Or at special occasions I can premeditate that I’ll indulge myself, again, no problems. Do I snack? Of course. The difference is I know what to snack on now.

I’ve gone from being the effect of food to being cause over it. That is a wonderful feeling.

Finally and most importantly, in Gunilla I have someone who is not just my Natropath but a true friend. Without whose help I wouldn’t have been able to have achieved the above, and continue to work with in the future.

Diabetes

Sunday, February 3rd, 2008

In the spring of last year 2007 when I was first recommended to Gunilla by my partner Wendy it was just over 3 years since I had been diagnosed with Type I Diabetes. In February 2004, I was carted into hospital on a drip having lost a lot of weight, rash on my chest, drinking litres of water each day and had reached the point of being incredibly weak. I was kept in hospital for over a week until I was fit enough to look after myself again.

The next phase of my recovery was the mastering of insulin use and how many and more importantly what carbohydrates to eat before I eventually got strong enough to get back to the gym to do some running, at which stage although not feeling great I believed I could not do much more. It was then that Wendy gave me the recommendation to go to Gunilla.

Upon my first visit last spring to Gunilla I remember her greeting me cheerily at the door while I warily thought, “What quackery do we do here then?” During my first assessment Gunilla described the goal of reducing the insulin I was taking through addressing what substances I did not react well to. As we created a list of items, much to my horror it appeared to become longer and longer, “that means ‘X’ number of visits by ‘Y’ number of pounds equals a fortune” I silently calculated. More importantly, the idea of reduced insulin use was a dream. This could not be done for me.

So to the treatments I have been doing since. To begin with I reacted not so great but I then noticed around the third or fourth visit an energy surge and I had my first sense of increased vitality. To start with the surges of energy did not last so long but as time went by they got longer and I felt better and better. My life improved with the first noticeable difference being that my daily early evening sleep for anything between fifteen minutes and two hours was no longer required. I started to go to London for shopping and to see football matches that previously would have been very tiring if not impossible. Most importantly, Wendy has gone from complaining before my treatments about the lack of activity in the bedroom to now protesting at the reverse.

This adds up to my eternal thanks to Gunilla, whose original goal of improved health with reduced insulin use is now bearing fruit, as the number of units I require has just these last couple of weeks started to drop and I now can also believe and share in the same target idea. It is this that demonstrates to me how much my health has improved and I look forward to progressing further over the coming months and getting healthier and stronger. I will endeavour to update at a later date.

Much love, and many thanks again to Gunilla my favourite practitioner.

Metabolic Typing Diet

Tuesday, December 4th, 2007

“Hi Gunilla,

I just want to let you know how impressed I am about the metabolic type nutritional programme. It is what I was looking for years………………… A diet which exactly fits to MY body’s needs.

I always knew I have to eat meat and I have now the confirmation as my metabolic type is balanced and the fantastic thing is that I know exactly which proportion.

Before, I was eating more vegetables than meat and now that I take the right percentage of meat (40 %) and only 35 % of carbohydrates, I feel much better than before, much more fullfilled, more happy with the food.

Also, I don’t have cravings anymore for chocolate, cakes or ice-creams as I really enjoy my food: it makes my body and my mind happy and I am not looking for any other food like desserts or else.

The first things I have noticed after only a few “proper” meals, is that my body temperature increased. Before, I was always cold, and now I am surprised myself that I could open the window in the car or take off one of my jumpers as others don’t seem to be too hot.

Also, my kidneys which were always weak each time, Gunilla checked them were very ok last time she checked them.

I also lost weight and experienced that, in my case, fruits make me gain more fat than the fat itself and I enjoy to put large amount of fat in my food : creme fraiche, butter, olive oil or coconut fat.

I look much younger than before and my body is not heavy anymore, I am free of pain and feel light and fantastic.

I really have the feeling, my body found AT LAST, the right balance.

I read so much about nutrition, always trying a new diet to be more healthy. I am happy that I found now what I was looking for, no more wasting time in researches and investigations!

I started this nutritional programme 2 weeks ago only, so, I am sure I will have even more wins in the future.

I have done before (and I am nearly done) some treatments with Gunilla for food intolerance and I think that, together with the metabolic type programme, it is really powerful.

Thanks to Gunilla and don’t hesitate to share my wins with others.”

Swollen Finger

Tuesday, December 4th, 2007

“I had the most amazing thing happen to me when I went to see my practitioner with a swollen finger which was breaking out.

Gunilla tested certain things to see what was causing this problem as it had been recurring over recent weeks.

She asked certain questions and the body gave the answers, and we discovered I was allergic to the soap I was using and also to my shower curtain. Of all the things you would think of the shower curtain would be the last thing.

I then realized that people get rashes and skin problems all the time and go to the doctor who will give them a cream to ‘take it away’ but usually find that it comes back again somehow. It’s because the real reason is not being addressed and when it is it can be handled, drug free.

This is amazing and I never experienced anything like that in my life!

Thanks Gunilla”

Influenza

Tuesday, December 4th, 2007

“I had used homeopathic remedies in the past for various things and thought ok I guess but continued to use them as I didn’t want to take drugs. These remedies were picked off the shelf from Boots or other such places.

I never got the power of their use.

On Sunday I was hit all of a sudden with the flu and took to my bed. I called Gunilla and she asked what was happening and gave me a tiny pill. I took this and within 20 minutes I wasn’t feeling as achy and felt better in myself. The next day I took another one of these pills and that was me sorted out and feeling great. A flu which would normally take a week to go away and maybe not fully was handled in 2 days by homeopathy and a wonderful practitioner.

No drugs or anything of the sort and it works wonders.

Thanks Gunilla”

Hayfever and Cat allergy

Tuesday, December 4th, 2007

“I would like to thank Gunilla for the wonderful allergy treatments she gave me this summer. I went to Gunilla as I suffer quite severely from hayfever and even more badly from an allergy to cats. With each treatment I could feel myself changing and getting stronger and stronger until I felt years younger and full of energy and life again. I have tried many different treatments to help my condition and had to eventually accept that I would always have to use medication when the symptoms became severe at different times of the year. Of course, I couldn’t have any animals around the house which upset my children as they were growing up.

I feel completely different and was amazed at all the different basic foods and particles that could affect one in the environment. The treatments are totally painless and given with such care and interest from Gunilla you really feel like you are on an adventure to understand more about your body and what is affecting it. I would recommend anyone be tested on this therapy as I know 100% that it would help with the difficulties they experience having allergies of one kind or another.

I would like to thank Gunilla very much for delivering this so much needed therapy in the UK.

Lots of love,”
