‘Following a thorough examination Camilla discovered that I had Candida, which was new to me. Camilla clearly explained the symptoms and suggested a sugar free diet for period of time plus some supplements. After 3 months I felt great! I had more energy, I had lost some excess weight, the bloated stomach had disappeared and I was far more discerning about the food I was eating as I reduced the amount of processed foods. During the three months Camilla checked my progress, provided encouragement and gave tips to enhance my diet. I would never have known I had Candida without Camilla’s intervention and appreciated her holistic approach to healthy living.’

When I tell friends & family that my Chiropractor offers nutritional advice their reaction is astonishment. But it’s true. They’ve watched my health improve as I’ve taken on board Camilla’s advice and made some healthier decisions nutritionally. Simple, but important things, like drinking enough water – because I was often dehydrated with headaches and lethargy. Now people tell me my skin glows. Parasites are one of the most common problems Camilla treats. She tested my tap water and found the source. I’ve never drunk the tap water but I immediately stopped the things I did use it for - filling my kettle, washing fruit & veg, and brushing my teeth. Within 2 days I was clear of parasite eggs. I feel completely cared for in a way that no other health professional has offered.
I'm feeling much better. Your nutritional prescriptions, tailored to my specific deficiencies and needs, have gone a long way towards making me feel more at home in my own body. Thank you very much and keep up the great work!
My eldest son Dylan had been suffering with stomach aches for as long as he could communicate a location of pain - possibility even longer. But from the age of 3 and a half he was always complaining of stomach aches, sometimes bent double with pain but more often discomfort. There seemed no rhythm to these complains – it wasn’t always when he had eaten or not eaten – no particular food seemed to be causing a problem and he wasn’t suffering with any other symptoms he was neither constipated or suffering from diarrhea.
I took Dylan to a pediatrician who put it down to the bowel not completely empting which we then treated for a month which did ease the problem but didn’t solve it.
I asked Camilla to look at Dylan to see if he had any intolerances. The diagnostics were Candida and intolerances to several food types. We changed Dylan’s diet and treated him homeopathically for 3 months and the stomach aches completely cleared up and 2 years down the line have not reoccurred and Dylan in back on all food types.

Following some major bowel and intestinal surgery over a period of around 6 months, I came to see Camilla – who had for several years been helping to correct an injured shoulder and a postural issue with my spine – and asked her if she could help me recover from the surgery and subsequent medicinal programme that had left me both uncomfortable and prone to stomach cramps and associated problems.
Camilla gave me a series of examinations and recommended a course of nutritional supplements over the next 6 months that greatly improved not only my comfort but also my overall health. With regular monitoring I regained my health and a balanced digestive system within a few months of starting the programme, and almost a year before I had been told to expect to recover by my consultants.
With continued monitoring and occasional courses of supplements to keep me on the straight and narrow I have seen further benefits in not only my digestive health but also my energy levels and overall health. I can highly recommend it to anyone who may be suffering from any similar discomfort!
After feeling completely exhausted and struggling through every day with no answers from the doctor because all my tests came back within a 'normal' range, I mentioned my symptoms to Camilla and asked for her help. Through her testing she determined that my thyroid needed nutritional support. I was happy to take the supplements, as they are all natural and noticed a difference within days - not weeks, days. Life is no longer a struggle and I feel better now than I have for months!
My son suffered from dry itchy atopic eczema for nearly 9 years, through all this time he was prescribed strong steroid creams and continual use of antihistamine medicines. His skin took a turn for the worse when, in addition to the sore patches of skin in the usual places associated with eczema; he developed a spotty rash all over his stomach. Our GP simply prescribed further creams and assured us that the daily use of antihistamine should be continued.
I was extremely unhappy with the constant use of steroid creams and needed to find the cause of his problems rather than treat the symptoms. My GP would not consider allergy testing so I looked to the private sector for help. A chance conversation with Camilla convinced me to give her methods a try and after Joel's first meeting with her we excluded 10 food types from his diet and commenced with a course of supplements and probiotics. To my astonishment and relief Joel's skin became completely cured within 2 weeks. After a month we were allowed to reintroduce some food types and can now tell precisely what triggers his eczema and what sets off his stomach rash.
At the age of ten he at last has uninterrupted sleep as there is no itching and a better quality of life. It is his choice now if he wants to indulge in one of his sensitive food types and we know exactly what reaction it will trigger and how to abstain completely from it to get his condition immediately back under control. A year has now passed without the use of creams or medicines.
I was delighted when Camilla asked me to write a testimonial, not just because I like her enormously as a person but also because I can justifiably enthuse about her skills and their beneficial effects for me.
I initially started going to a chiropractor (Camilla’s predecessor at Sheen Road in fact) 8 and a half years ago after a horse riding accident, on the recommendation of a friend. I had previously tried various forms of osteopathy when my back started to be problematic in my early 30s. I love chiropractic – no smoke and mirrors, both you and your practitioner know what’s going on at the same time and if an adjustment has worked; I love the transparency of it. Since seeing Camilla on a regular basis, not only is my back much stronger but also I am much better informed about my body’s weak spots and how to manage them. Through her talents in applied kinesiology, I discovered that the many problems I had been suffering from for years – constant itching of my feet and various patches on my body; bloating and stomach cramps, occasional uncontrollable flatulence – was due to food intolerances. It took about 18 months to bring it all under control and I now know what I can eat with impunity and what will cause me problems and in what way. Not only that, but Camilla has managed to stop my constant susceptibility to colds and flu from September through to April, to the extent that I only have one cold a year, at most.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any of my friends, family or colleagues – I don’t call her my Health Guru for nothing!

My chiropractor suggested that I start taking vitamin and mineral supplements after I went to see her for a lower back complaint. My diet up until that point consisted of mainly vegetarian. I hadn't eaten meat for over 20 years and I wondered if not getting enough vitamins and minerals through my diet could be affecting my health, in particular my back.
The main benefits of taking nutritional supplements became apparent after a short time. I noticed that my overall health improved dramatically. My lower back wasn't troubling me half as much. The other benefits I noticed was that my skin appeared clearer and my hair and nails became stronger and healthier.
She also prescribed a supplement to help with my lymphatics as I was experiencing some neck pain. This has also helped a great deal. I am convinced that it pays to take nutritional supplements that contain minerals and other nutrients that are essential in maintaining general well-being.
Recently I was diagnosed with a condition call "Candida" even though I was lucky as to not have any symptoms, I was also unlucky as it meant the condition could not be treated straight way due to no symptoms. But thanks my regular chiropractor appointments, the condition was able to be spotted through stomach muscle weakness.
Through 3 weeks of herbal and vitamin food supplements and cutting out as much sugar out of my diet as possible, I found that my general well being had improved and I had more energy than the previous weeks.
