I’ve lost nearly 4 years of my life to ill health, I became very poorly, very quickly, desperate for answers and a plan of action, I saw 4 Consultants, 1 private, & 3 NHS over an 18 month period. Eventually, a Consultant Neurologist diagnosed me with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME and Fibromyalgia, on top of an existing Under-active Thyroid condition. I was put on 16 tablets a day, told my pain was managed and my life was left diminished and unrecognisable, I lost my job and Career of 12 years due to the illness. I was in a wheelchair, or had to use crutches due to the pain and weakness in my legs and joints, I slept 16-18 hours a day, my husband had to bathe, cook and help carry me up the stairs, my cognitive function was so poor that I feared I had early onset dementia. This is a tiny snap shot of the misery of living with debilitating illness day in and day out. I had made some progress in my recovery through energy healing and talking therapies, however, I was still very poorly when I found Stiana.
Stiana took a thorough life history and recommended some tests, which I had, these really showed why my health was still so poor, I had leaky gut, gut dysbosis, a parasite, vitamin and mineral deficiencies amongst other things. Stiana devised a plan of action, which I have followed for the last 8 months. During this time, I have had a massive improvement to my health and quality of life. I must say, at the beginning I felt slightly worse, however, I’m so glad I stuck with it, it’s as though my life force energy has returned a tiny bit each day. For the first time in 4 years I can go for a walk with my grandchildren, I have joined a gym, I have very little pain and weakness, my energy levels and stamina are so much improved, I am naturally waking up in the morning with energy for the day ahead and I’ve started a part-time job, which is going really well. I couldn’t have envisioned this progress 8 months ago.
I absolutely credit Stiana for my recovery, she has guided, supported and encouraged me every step of the way. Stiana has a lovely, person-centred approach and I feel she really listens, it’s very much a joint way of working, where Stiana empowers you.
My only regret is that I didn’t find Stiana 3 and a half years earlier, however, I’m over the moon with my progress and cannot recommend Stiana highly enough. The investment in working with Stiana has given me my health, quality of life and earning potential back.
The fantastic support, guidance and encouragement from Stiana is outstanding. She really does take time to explain everything in detail and her approach is both comforting and educational. She is so understanding and is always there when you need her. Nothing is too much trouble. Whereas GPs often dismiss or suggest ‘everything is ok’, Stiana really takes time to listen and digs deep to find the true causes of my symptoms. I can not recommend her enough and I am very grateful to her for everything she does.
I have been seen by the wellness junction for the last month and a half after struggling with ibs for years. In the first month I have had to eliminate a lot of foods but feel so much better and has lost 8lb in a month with no ibs attacks. Looking forward to start introducing foods back in now.
I first went to see Stiana in autumn 2018 after attending her talk on gut health at the open day – it captured my attention and I felt it was relevant. I’d had a really bad flare up of psoriasis since April and it was really uncomfortable and getting worse by the day. I knew I didn’t want steroids or traditional treatments as I really wanted to get to the bottom of what wasn’t working within my body to have caused such an aggressive reaction.
Immediately Stiana took control and whilst my diet wasn’t particularly ‘bad’ made me make some significant, permanent changes. The list of supplements bamboozled my tired brain a little at first but wow did they work! Within three months – the difference was unbelievable, hardly a patch of red, sore skin, significantly increased energy, and overall wellness… I found it so hard to believe. I really stuck to the advice and did as much as I could on top of diet but there were always a few areas I didn’t get to complete – mostly regarding time for ‘me’ but I know the importance and am constantly looking for ways to achieve this! Stiana shares her wealth of knowledge about wider health issues and future prevention freely.
Thanks so much for the support, encouragement, advice in all areas – not just for my original complaint. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Stiana to anyone looking for relief of a particular complaint or just seeking more overall wellness. Thanks.
I started to see Stiana myself regarding debilitating problems with my monthly cycle. With dietary changes and supplements things have improved enormously, for which I am very grateful. Whereas the GP was suggesting stronger painkillers and other medication which was causing side effects, I felt that Stiana was taking the time to listen and understand and address the underlying causes. I was able to stop taking the medication and my overall health has improved.
Stiana is incredibly knowledgable and passionate about what she does. She provides a detailed wellbeing plan after every consultation which is very helpful in implementing dietary changes and supplements. She is a great listener and really cares about working with her clients to improve their nutrition, health and well-being.
I have been suffering with IBS, Lupus, Sjogren’s, Fibromialgia etc. for a number of years.From the age of about 40 I have been suffering from really bad constipation. I had seen to a variety of specialist without success. This led to regular use of senokot, which had to be increased over the years to deliver results. I can honestly say that I have not had a normal stool for the last 35 years.
This changed when I started working with Stiana. Three months ago, she started work on supporting my ongoing problems with Lupus. She taught me how to eat properly, how to cut out sugar, gluten and dairy. It wasn’t easy, but my debilitating symptoms motivated me to persist. Stiana analysed my past medical history and medication and meticulously researched what she could use to avoid any contra-indications as I am taking a lot of medication.
She did some testing and suggested specific supplements.Within one week, really, just one week of starting work on my gut, my stomach aches were gone, and I was having daily normal stools, and continue to do so daily.I feel so much better overall and couldn’t thank Stiana enough for giving me my health back. It took me 3 years to start on the plan as I always had an excuse, but the only reason was that I didn’t want to give up the junk that I was eating. At last I did, and I couldn’t be happier.
When I started working with Stiana I was having some major issues with my skin and gut health. After an extensive consultation, Stiana determined the best steps to take towards my recovery. We talked on regular occasions whilst I followed various protocols to get my health back on track. Stiana reassured me on what to expect during each stage of my treatment.
It has been over 5 months and I’m feeling almost back to my best self. My skin and gut are massively improved all thanks to Stiana’s knowledge and understanding of how the body works. I am forever grateful for all your support Stiana – thank you very much.
I started working with Stiana in October this year wanting to understand the detail of nutrition and well being and how by getting the basics right and understanding your connection with nutrition, this can positively influence so many aspects of your life such as weight, energy and mood. It’s been really enlightening for me, I had no real idea the effect certain foods can have on you both positively and negatively. It’s not just food we’ve looked at, but overall well being in sleep and stress amongst other things. The difference I feel and see in myself over the past 2 months has been fantastic and this is from small tweaks and changes to my current lifestyle, nothing drastic so totally manageable. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Stiana.
