I came to Michelle after struggling for years with chronic muscular
pain and exhaustion. From the start, I’ve been amazed at how
thorough she is. I was so used to being fobbed off by GPs, or having
tests and being told I was fine, that to meet someone who
understands that my symptoms are real, was such a relief.
Interestingly, she was able to help me at first based entirely from
my symptoms, with no tests at all. I filled in a detailed set of
forms and this was followed by a call in which Michelle carefully
went through everything to form a good understanding of the issues.
From this, she prescribed various supplements, and some dietary
I followed this plan, saw some improvements, and then did some
tests, and Michelle tweaked my plan again.
The main change I’ve noticed is that my pain so much better. I
would say I’m now at the point where most days are pain-free,
which is incredible after so many years of suffering. My pain
hasn’t disappeared completely, as there are still things which
trigger it. But even then, it improves so much more quickly than it
ever did before. Last week on holiday, I woke up after the first
night with pain in my neck, shoulders and arms, from sleeping on a
bed which was too firm. In the past, this would have ruined my whole
holiday, and taken days to recover from even after the holiday was
over. It would have hurt me to even sit in the car and travel home.
Instead, to my amazement, later that day I found myself carrying a
rucksack and pushing my son on a swing! This simple activity, that
most people take for granted, made me so happy. Before I met
Michelle, my secret fear was that I would never be able to do things
like this. There were many other every day things such as cooking,
dressing my son, and even washing my hair, which were so painful
that I had to get help, plan to do them on days when I knew I
wouldn’t have to do anything else “difficult”, or simply not
do them at all. My quality of life wasn’t fantastic as a result of
this: I am naturally independent and hated not being able to do
things for myself.
I am now able to increase the amount of work I can do, which is also
Michelle is so knowledgeable. She’s also a lovely person. She
understands the pressures of normal life and doesn’t expect you to
live in a cave while you work on this, but she does give honest
advice about what you need to do in order to get results.
We are still still working on some things - it’s a process, almost
like detective work. The pace is partly dictated by what tests you
need, and what order it makes sense to do these in. I could probably
have done things a bit quicker had I been more organised, but I am
happy with the progress we have made as I feel it's gentler on the
body to work on things in stages. I am already so much better and am
confident things will only get better still the more work we do.
In order to get the most out of working for Michelle, you do have to
be organised, and make sure you do everything she tells you, in the
correct order and at the right times. I simply printed checklists of
what I have to take and when, and that makes it easy to remember
Additional benefits are that my diet has improved, and I’m loving
that. I have even even lost some stubborn weight from my middle
which just never shifted before.
Working with Michelle has been truly life changing and I totally
