“Before working with Lara, my symptoms were chronic constipation, bloating, painful & heavy periods, acne, very low energy, bags under my eyes, and frequent headaches due to high-stress job. I was also diagnosed with hypothyroidism >5 years ago and that explained many of the symptoms I was experiencing with constant fatigue & having very low motivation for things in general.
I attempted addressing a lot of these things on my own prior to working with Lara, through diet, natural cosmetics, supplements, seeing specialist doctors etc. Even though I saw some improvements, they were not long lasting and I felt I was playing more of a guessing game. I therefore really wanted to find someone who could guide me through the process of understanding my body better and support me with individualised nutrition & lifestyle recommendations.
I loved Lara’s approach of leaning towards our body’s ability to heal & being a huge advocate throughout this process. There were moments where I felt really low and thought things were not working only to understand that things sometimes do get worse before getting better. Lara’s relentless support & kind approach were paramount. She was extremely helpful during those hard moments, bringing in more perspective & additional tips. She is very thorough and will always check in on every little thing that may help.
I also loved that the program is not necessarily focused on quick fixes and shortcuts (such as taking tons of supplements) but instead it is built around truly understanding how our bodies communicate with us, and then incorporating targeted changes of support.
My periods have improved with a much lighter flow and the pain is now barely noticeable. My chronic constipation has improved drastically (and we established that stress is one of the main reasons for causing this). I also have much less bloating & flatulence, clear skin, more energy, better stress management (and I generally recover from stressful situations faster), the bags under my eyes are less noticeable & my headaches frequency is much less. I feel more enthusiastic about things in general and working together with Lara has inspired me to sign up for a nutrition course 🙂
I am certainly more respectful towards my symptoms & my body and no longer feel like my body has ”let me down”. This is huge as before, symptoms would really have upset me, whereas I now know how to support myself, all thanks to working together with Lara.
She is a lot of fun to work with, and every consultation was a joy – we often ended up laughing a lot of funny at situations & moments! Equally though, Lara also is very professional and thorough.
I’d therefore highly recommend Lara to anyone who is looking for a compassionate practitioner, and also wanting to understand the real reasons behind their symptoms.”
