How Naturopathy Can Help Type II Diabetes

How did you find Genevieve?

I had just been given fairly bad news from my endocrinologist about my kidneys and I sought advice (from as it turned out to be) Genevieve at the Vitamin Shoppe at North Rocks.

How was your health when you first came to see Genevieve?

I had been struggling to get my blood sugar under control (I am a Type 2 diabetic) and my results had just continued to get worse from the time that I had consulted the endocrinologist (my GP had been treating me prior to this). If my 3 month blood sugar reading had not improved when I went back to the endocrinologist then I was informed that I would be placed on insulin.

I had also lost my husband with terminal lung cancer 14 months prior to finding Genevieve and although there was no direct link established, I had recently been diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder called lichen planus. I had suffered periods of sub optimal mental health since having my son in 1992 and suffering post natal depression for 2 years prior to diagnosis. It was suggested that I may have pyrroles disorder. A thyroid test also showed my thyroid was not functioning correctly.

How has your health changed since you started treatment?

The first issue was to address my blood sugar levels and by the 3 month check this had reduced by 40% on previous readings. I texted Genevieve to thank her for her help in reducing this issue, and preventing me at this stage from need to take insulin.  Genevieve researched lichen planus and I am also taking regular medication to try and reduce the effects of this condition.

When I return for an oral biopsy they were unable to confirm this disorder and am being monitored every 6 months for possible developments which hopefully will not occur with naturopathic medication (raspberry leaf).

I have only recently started treatments for pyrroles and my thyroid. I have the utmost confidence in Genevieve’s advice on these issues and  will continue to follow her advice.

Do you have any advice for others?

I was absolutely astounded by my blood sugar results that were achieved and look forward to improved health in the future with Genevieve’s guidance.

My advice is to seek Genevieve out and soon (and never loose sight of her). She is a brilliant professional and I will continue to trust her with my heath. You absolutely should try this as it works!

A Natural Way To Treat Mosquito Bites

Before consulting with Genevieve, my 3 year old daughter, Willow, would get bitten by mosquitoes regardless of how much protection spray she would have on & within hours she would swell up, be itchy and very hot to touch.
We could only treat her with a antihistamine and a cream to try and stop the infection/allergy taking place. Usually within a day she would end up with cellulitis and need antibiotic treatment to get rid of the infection.
We found once stating the vitamin B1 it took about a week to notice she was getting bitten much less and within a few weeks bites were almost non existent. If she did get bitten the infection wouldn’t be as bad.
Every morning with her breakfast Willow would ask for her mozzie medicine. I would strongly recommend anyone who isn’t getting results with medical treatments to trust Genevieve and give her advice ago. Sometimes it’s the simplest things that help!

How Can Naturopathy Help Prevent Miscarriages?

How did you find out about Genevieve?

I have known Gen for nearly 7 years after we went to the same mothers group and started seeing her as a naturopath nearly 3 years ago but in between she has always given me great advice!

How was your health when you first came for an appointment?

After having 2 miscarriages and doctors being no help I was feeling completely lost.

How did Genevieve help you?

Gens first thought was to do a saliva test which showed how my hormone levels were not as they should be….she then prescribed various products…within a few weeks I started feeling different and I can now say I am now the proud mama of a 5 month old baby girl!!!!!!

It was not only this …it was the support throughout the pregnancy and she made sure I was at peak health and emotionally supported me through a very nervous and scary pregnancy!

How did your health change?

I credit Gen with the birth of my baby as the doctors were not finding anything wrong with me and she picked it up straight away!

How did Dan’s health change once he started on the treatment?

My hubby was on a lot of meds at the time we were trying to conceive and as normal doctors never look at the male.  Gen asked all the right questions so we then realised he needed to be looked at as well.  Gen prescribed some natural products to help with sperm production as well.

What advice do you have for others?

I would definitely recommend Gen….she is so thorough and looks at all areas of what might be going on …she is very knowledgeable and on top of that gives the emotional support on your journey.
