Exhausting tonsillitis

“Thank you Mel, you were amazing to deal with as you made us feel so comfortable with your easy natural manner. When I brought my son to you, we had had such a long run of recurrent strep throat and tonsillitis. With each relapse he was getting more and more exhausted and was missing so much time off school. I appreciated the fact that you went through his whole history and looked at the big picture and saw how one thing had led to another. You explained everything so clearly and what you said made so much sense.  Having this understanding and a plan to follow made me as a parent feel like we were doing something positive. He took the herbs and supplements breaking the vicious cycle of infections. He is happy, content and healthy again.”

Uncontrollable eczema

“My eczema had gotten so bad that I ended up at the hospital and wearing gloves to bed so that my hands didn’t stick to the sheets. I was at my wits end as I had tried every cream and soap and nothing made a difference until I came and saw you. You explained how we had to fix things from the inside, and that it was not going to come right with creams and special washes. You tackled my eczema on lots of levels. You made me see how stress, food and environmental factors were all contributing. You provided me with a comprehensive plan that gave me confidence when I went home and helped me stay on track. The eczema cleared up. It was wonderful to no longer be self conscious about my hands and skin. But what is more important is that Mel has helped me understand what the triggers are for my flareups and now I can self manage these when they occur. I feel like I am in control of if now.”
