NUTRITIONAL BALANCING AND WHY I RECOMMEND IT
by Lawrence Wilson, MD
© January 2010, The Center For Development
I have studied many nutritional approaches to healing. While all have some merit, I mainly continue to use and recommend nutritional balancing science for these reasons:
This should always be the first on the list of qualities for evaluating a healing modality. Nutritional balancing is much safer than most drug medical care, or many holistic and nutritional methods because:
a) The Products Used Are Safe. These include selected vitamins, minerals, amino acids, digestive aids and few others. We do not use hormones of any kind, drugs of any kind, and we are extremely careful about possible problems with most herbs. We find that herbal therapies and methods often cause toxic metal problems, especially all Chinese and Ayurvedic or East Indian herbal products, no matter how good the quality.
b) Balancing The Body Is Very Safe. It is far safer than most symptomatic approaches, for example, in my experience. Balance is a key to our health, and balancing the oxidation rate and the major mineral ratios, along with balancing yin and yang forces in the body, seems to prevent many problems that arise with all kinds of healing methods, both medical and holistic or natural ones.
c) Toxic Metals Are Not Forced Out Of The Body. This may seem odd to say. However, most chelation products, including oral, intravenous and even rectal suppositories, force the metals out of storage sites in an order that is not the body’s natural sequence or order. This occasionally causes difficulties with these therapies.
Nutritional balancing works at the body’s pace, which may not satisfy some clients, but is much safer in our experience. Nutritional balancing also avoids the use of all chelators for other reasons. The main one is that they all, even the natural ones, remove some vital or essential minerals along with the toxic ones. This can be disastrous in a few cases, so we avoid it and we don’t need them at all.
d) Nutrients Are Not Forced Into The body using intravenous or intramuscular nutrient therapy. Oral feeding of vitamins, minerals and other substances may be slower at times, but it is gentler and usually works excellently without the need for IV or IM therapy.
e) Mega doses Of Any Substances Are Not Used.Many systems of healing use larger doses of nutrients, herbs and other products. Lower doses tend to be safer.
f) Nutritional Balancing, In Most Cases, Can Reduce Toxic Levels Far Below That Possible With Other Healing Methods, Including Most Intravenous Chelation.This occurs because balancing the body chemistry powerfully assists the body to remove toxic metals and chemicals in over 15 different ways without needing chelating drugs or even natural chelating methods used widely by others such as cilantro and chlorella extracts, zeolite, herbs, clay baths and other methods. Reducing the levels of toxic metals very low is extremely helpful for health and safer, as well.
g) Monitoring with repeat hair mineral analysis: It can alert the practitioner to 1) a change in the oxidation rate, 2) a toxic elimination in progress, 3) a change in the stress level that needs attention, 4) anticipating toxic eliminations and other changes in order to prepare the client, and 5) comparison testing helps assure compliance and understanding by the client of the process that is involved.
Trends or tendencies for 50 or so conditions can also be monitored easily, inexpensively and usually without the need for other costly and perhaps invasive tests or procedures. Without such a tool, monitoring is far more difficult and the possibility of harm is greater.
PREVENTION AND PREDICTION
I also prefer nutritional balancing because it is highly predictive and preventive. Every healing method should include prevention and the ability to predict future problems. Nutritional Balancing is excellent for both of these, especially prevention. With it, one can identify trends or mineral imbalances associated with 50 or even more physical and mental health conditions. One can then correct many before they even cause symptoms.
For example, these include identifying toxic metals, toxic chemicals in some cases, infections with bacteria, viruses and parasites, and tendencies for degenerative diseases such as cancer. This can be done early, while the pathologies are often still hidden from standard diagnostic tests.
Prevention Of Unrelated And Latent Health Conditions. Many screening tests and other methods can detect a few serious conditions such as diabetes, heart disease or cancer. Nutritional balancing helps to detect and correct early cases of most all disease in the human body.
A TRULY HOLISTIC METHOD
While many healers claim their method is holistic, few, in fact, are truly so. This is because a holistic system must incorporate lifestyle, nutrition, the body/mind connection and advanced spiritual development. These are all components of nutritional balancing science as I suggest it be practiced. Laboratory reports may not involve all these elements, however, at this time. I hope this will change, however.
By comparison, medical therapy, including most holistic and alternative and naturopathic therapy, is not as holistic, in fact, no matter how it is promoted. Nor is the use of advanced healing machines, for example.
MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL HEALING
Another reason I am continually impressed with nutritional balancing is its application in cases of mental and emotional health conditions. This is an enormous area of concern today, and most other therapies deal with it poorly, if at all. It includes, but is not limited to developmental difficulties in children, depression, ADHD, autism, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, panic attacks and much more.
Drug and many holistic approaches to mental illness and developmental delays are too often quite symptomatic and do not address the removal of toxic metals and toxic chemicals, for example. Suppressing the problems with drugs can be disastrous. Nutritional balancing directly addresses causes of mental illness. These include, but are not limited to an unbalanced oxidation rate, nutritional deficiencies, blood sugar imbalances and excessive toxic metals and chemicals present in the nervous system and brain.
Another benefit of nutritional balancing is that correcting the nutritional imbalances will often assist the client develop his personality, improve school and work performance and much more. In other words, opening up the mind to help with this method affects every area of life, literally. The brain and nervous system function better, enhancing every other approach for healing and for enhancing one’s life.
BRIDGING EASTERN AND WESTERN HEALING WISDOM
While this may seem unusual to mention as a benefit, there is much wisdom in the ancient therapies of the orient such as Ayurveda, traditional Chinese healing with acupuncture, acupressure, jin shin jyutsu, shiatsu, tai chi chuan, yoga and others. However, integrating them with Western medical sciences and “updating them” to deal with modern mankind’s particular issues today is difficult in most cases.
Nutritional balancing is actually a blend of Western scientific methods with Eastern wisdom, such as balancing the body and assessing yin and yang. Other Eastern concepts that are vital in nutritional balancing include metabolic typing, the concept of vital force or energetic balancing, the concept of retracing or healing crises, the concept of holism or totality, and more.
In this way, nutritional balancing using hair mineral analysis is a bridge between Western biochemistry and physiology and ancient wisdom applied to the human and animal body, mind and spirit. It is a blend that works well, and that is the most important aspect of it.
A POWERFUL WAY TO DEEPLY REMOVE FROM THE BODY ALL TOXIC METALS AND MANY CHEMICALS, INCLUDING EVEN RADIOACTIVE PARTICLES
Seventeen or so methods are used at the same time in all cases to enhance the process of removing all toxic material from the body. Other therapies to remove toxins, such as intravenous chelation, may act faster, but not as deeply as nutritional balancing, and it cannot remove nearly as many toxic metals and toxic chemicals. It is also not as safe.
THE ABILITY TO CORRECT VERY CHRONIC IMBALANCES
All healing methods have their strong points and those it is not equipped to handle. A particular strong point of nutritional balancing science is to identify and correct a difficult condition the four-low pattern.
Doctors with a lot of experience know that there is a group of patients for whom progress in healing is most difficult. They do not respond as do the others. Dr. Paul Eck, in his wise way, realized this and developed not only a way to identify these people using hair analysis. He also developed a simple protocol to counteract the pattern that works most of the time.
The main symptoms are often fatigue and allergies, in many cases. The person often has a negative view about life, and yet is a hard-working, hard-driving individual in most cases. With nutritional balancing science, one can recognize the pattern instantly and take corrective action that saves many lives.
- Reasonable cost. This applies to both the hair test and the cost of the program such as the diet, supplements, lifestyle changes and other procedures. Although cost should never be a primary consideration in healing, it is an important practical reason to prefer this method of healing over some others.
- Sampling the hair, and handling, preserving and transporting the biopsy samples is easy, safe, and non-invasive. In fact, I believe that one reason for the lack of acceptance of hair mineral testing is that sampling is so simple, as are preserving and transporting the samples. Doctors cannot quite believe the possibility of such as simple method, as they are far more used to all the difficulties with blood, urine, saliva and other standard medical sampling methods.
This is a sad reason hair mineral analysis, a true cellular biopsy, has not caught on faster in America or around the world.
- Assessment with the hair mineral biopsy is mathematically precise, objective and easily repeatable. This may not seem important, but is a primary benefit of this approach. Many holistic methods, in particular, are quite vague, subjective or imprecise. Many are also hard to learn, requiring years of education such as acupuncture diagnosis and classical homeopathy.
Nutritional balancing assessment leaves little room for doubts, as it measures minerals to extreme degrees of accuracy in parts per million or even parts per billion. One can then calculate the levels, ratios and patterns with great precision. Even many blood, urine, hormone and other standard medical assays are far less accurate, in spite of what is sometimes said about hair mineral testing.
- Programs can be set up by a computer. Because results are quantitative and precise, it is relatively easy to set up a computer to assist with program design. In fact, I believe one reason nutritional balancing is not more widely used is that it does not require quite as much skill and effort on the doctor’s part. Most doctors prefer to be more involved. In fact, a lot of skill can be required to help clients understand the program and overcome healing reactions. However, these are not skills most doctors are trained in.
Human factors such as this impact all sciences.
- A graphic display of test results. This is somewhat less important. However, Dr. Paul Eck’s sincere desire to share his wisdom caused him to design a graph of the results of the test that is easy for anyone to see and interpret, which is helpful. It makes learning, appreciating and sharing the results of the analysis with clients easier and more enjoyable.
- A stand-alone system. By this I mean that nutritional balancing is fairly self-sufficient, in that it does not require a lot of confirmatory tests or procedures such as x-rays, blood tests, urine tests, physical exams or others. This is an excellent practical advantage to save time and money for the client that I did not believe when I began doing nutritional balancing.
It is to be contrasted to the standard medical approach and that of many holistic doctors who insist upon sometimes a dozen different types of testing to confirm and rule out various conditions or diseases. Some years ago, I visited a well-known holistic physician in Phoenix. Before I even got to see the doctor, he had sent me for over $800.00 of tests. At times, of course, the figure is closer to $8000.00 if it were to include MRI or CAT scans.
Oddly, this is another reason I believe hair analysis and nutritional balancing are not more accepted. The idea that a single, inexpensive test can guide the correction of health is just rather foreign. When a doctor criticizes this approach, I answer by saying that the difference is the hair analysis is being used to assess the stress response, not to confirm or rule out various diseases. Once we know the stress response, often that is all that is needed to begin the correction process. As correction proceeds, symptoms go away on their own. So it is a completely different algorithm for healing, in essence, than the diagnose-and-treat model used by medical doctors and by most holistic practitioners as well.
Also, since most medical tests are to detect disease and not to assess the stress response at the cellular level, trying to confirm or rule out hair test findings with other medical tests if usually futile. Most of the time, in fact, when clients show me piles of blood, urine, saliva, x-ray and other medical exams, I find them not useful. Of course, they are interesting, but I think to myself, these numbers are just the way the body is expressing its response to stress. Let us get to work and alter the stress situation and I find the blood and urine values will shift quickly. In other words, the test values are not what is deepest. The stress response is more important and will change the blood and urine values quickly and easily.
This may seem a bit complex, but it is at the heart of the difference between nutritional balancing and the more conventional diagnose-and-treat approach to health care.
Another curious way that nutritional balancing is sufficient unto itself is it does not even require much of a physical exam or patient history. Once again, this was upsetting to me, at first, having been trained medically. While I strongly urge doctors to do basic physical examinations, if possible, I find myself telling most clients that a personal visit for a physical exam is not needed, especially if it means a lot of travel and expense.
Once again, the reason is that most physical examinations do not reveal the deepest information about the client’s present stress response. Therefore, while the information gleaned may be vital, such as one’s blood pressure, for example, most of it is not deep enough to begin correction, and the hair analysis will provide what is needed.
- Other practical aspects of nutritional balancing. These include the fact that the programs are often similar for most people, another facet of nutritional balancing that I found disconcerting at first, but certainly helps to simplify product selection and keep the cost low.
Others are the ease of monitoring progress in many cases with retests, and the simple ability to identify disease trends, personality trends and other information at a quick glance. I know of no other system that offers this much information that is so accurate in most cases, so easily and quickly.
Other words for this might be “personality integration”, “achieving one’s total potential”, “self-actualization” or “self-realization”. Other people may refer to it as developing the chakras or the aura. Development is nothing less than the total unfolding of the human being at all levels of development.
While this was not Dr. Eck’s original intent when he evolved nutritional balancing science, it is nevertheless the case. I have added a stricter diet based somewhat on macrobiotic principles, stricter drinking water requirements, and the use of near infrared sauna therapy, coffee enemas and the Roy Masters meditation. These combine with the original nutritional program to offer a more complete therapy at other levels that further enhance mental development.
I see the results daily and they are wonderful. The ability to develop the mind, and not just heal the body, must be considered the crowning achievement and advantage of nutritional balancing science.
In this regard, nutritional balancing science is more like ancient yoga sciences, for example, that were designed to move a person along his spiritual path in many ways. Only today, the problem is our food supply and our depleted and toxic bodies. So this science may be said to be a powerful support system that can help one preserve the physical vehicle and prepare it for more subtle types of work on this planet.
It is a kind of “missing link” that can allow modern man to catch up, so to speak, with the ancients, whose bodies were in far better shape due to better food, less radiation and chemical contamination, and many were living in less stressful environments due to fewer technological marvels such as electric lights and cell phones.
AN AMAZING RESEARCH TOOL
Minerals are the basis for all life. This is not in dispute. However, nutritional balancing science offers us a way to see this in action and to understand it at levels not dreamed of by most medical scientists.
Hair analysis is also an excellent monitoring and research tool already in use almost 80 years in some branches of science. However, more is being learned almost on a weekly basis. It is the basic biopsy that is a fascinating tool to research multitudes of health conditions, drug use, environmental contamination and more. It has almost unlimited amounts of information to offer the practitioner and researchers.
Powerful program with such a wonderful practitioner
I had initially found Sari and her services online whilst in a desperate search for answers to my long list of debilitating symptoms. I have too many to count from extreme fatigue, severe digestive problems, chronic constipation,candida, severe mood swings, lots of emotional & mental issues, anxiety & panic, depression, hormonal imbalances, PCOS, amenorrhea, racing racing mind & thoughts and many more. I had seen so many different practitioners and tried so many "treatments" to no avail prior to starting the NB program & was truly relieved to have found someone in my city to practice & offer it. I started on the nutritional balancing program and have been continuing on it for just over a year now & i can confidently say & attest that deep healing does occur. It is a very gradual and slow progress however knowing that having a build up of many toxins over the years possibly since birth is not an overnight fix. Sari truly has helped me to understand this and her constant reassurance, kindness, compassion & support helps keep me going. She is always there to answer or clarify any questions or concerns without delay. I sure have had many myself and just knowing that i have a practitioner who has a geniune care & the best of interest in her clients like Sari does is such a comforting feeling especially in such dark & lonely times. She definately is someone i can trust to consult with any concerns i may have and would highly reccomended her to anyone. I am so grateful to have found Sari. There definately are times where i do fall short off the program with diet etc but i now treat it as a learning experience rather than beating myself up for my downfalls & just focus on getting back up & continuing on the path as best as i can again regardless. Most of our consultations have been via phone & there has been no issues whats so ever. Overall, i can say that my symptoms are improving & its also nice to see how much progress i have made with the hair test results for some motivation. I know i still have a long way to go but i have peace of mind knowing that i have found such a powerful program with such a wonderful practitioner guiding and supporting me through it all. So grateful for you Sari :).
I would highly recommend Sari Young to friends & family as mentioned in my description above.
sleep well, most of my digestive issues and abdominal pain have subsided
Burnout syndrome became an overpowering reality around 2017-18 as my digestive function began to break down, I was plagued by increasingly frequent abdominal pain and IBS symptoms, I slept for 10 hours a day without feeling rested and I was in a deep rut, spending thousands of dollars on doctors, naturopaths, various testing and supplements. All of whom more or less tried a shotgun approach, some loosely based on mineral panels and hair mineral analysis.
Until I decided to give Mineral Balancing a go and booked a meeting with Sari.
Nutritional Balancing had caught my eye for a long time, and I was very happy to find Sari close enough to Melbourne and I am happy to say that she has outdone every other doctor and naturopath in terms of treating and providing support to allow me to truly begin fixing many of my digestive and burnout symptoms.
Having personally studied the human body and physiology, I have not come across any other system that is as comprehensive, holistic and made accessible to me as a patient, and I have done several HTMA tests with different naturopaths and HTMA organizations, and ARL analytical labs, that Sari works with, has by far been the most comprehensive and detailed of them all, especially added with the personalized guidance of Sari.
I have had, and still have, the occasional hiccup and fallback into poor patterns, but that is to be expected, and I've only been able to fall back in the first place because I have become well enough to afford it.
Today, I sleep well, most of my digestive issues and abdominal pain have subsided while adhering properly to the guidelines and supplements, and I am confident that as long as the program is followed, health and wellbeing is a result.
Especially appreciated is the fact that consults can be done online via skype once the program is set up, and she is available to answer mails and queries as well as part of the packages.
I highly recommend Sari and especially the mineral balancing program. It's not cheap, and there is a lot of supplements on top, but if you stick with it and follow through and heed the wisdom, it works because it's tailored to each individuals needs at the moment in time and is updated with time to address the changing and improving body as well.
Personalized nutrition profiling and treatment is finally here, and Sari is doing us a great favor by delivering it one person at a time.
insight, understanding and encouragement
I was drawn to Sari’s Natural Medicine, as Sari has qualifications in 3 health fields, which gives an in-depth understanding into health and illness. Sari’s health journey gave me confidence that she would be working from experience with Nutritional Balancing, along with Nursing and Naturopathy. My health challenges are deep seated chronic conditions and heavy metal toxicity from copper pipes in the home. As well as many years ago Copper Sulphate was added to the house tank to kill off algae. Then some 30 years later, the copper load every day when I showered, just sent me into a downward spiral. Now I understand how metals impact health and the mind. We take our health for granted until we lose it.
Sari’s report gave me insight, understanding and encouragement. There is light ahead. Sari speaks from experience, knowledge, and deep caring for her fellow human being, as she is a healer.
I no longer experience any seasonal allergies or anxiety
Before I started on a development program, I had bad seasonal allergies for about 7-8 months each year for 16 years, as well as fatigue and anxiety at times. I have had Sari as my practitioner for a little over 3 years, been on the program for about 6 and a half years. The program takes some effort and commitment and trust, especially at first, but the results are worth it. I no longer experience any seasonal allergies (I don't use any remedies) or anxiety, and am a much more positive person now. Life still has it's challenges but I am able to respond more effectively and positively to them. I have moved to the country and secured a good job, two long held goals I couldn't seem to achieve before.
I have enjoyed having Sari as my practitioner, as she is very knowlegeable, and easy to communicate with. I choose to see her in person but she can also do telephone or skype appointments. She is a Dr Wilson approved practitioner which is very important for the proper understanding and implementation of the program. Doing the program properly isn't always intuitive and one needs a good guide, another reason to choose Sari on your healing journey.
I would recommend Naturopath Sari Young to friends and family as the program she offers helped heal me deeply, and she is enjoyable to work with, and is experienced with Development Science.
His behaviours has improved markedly
Before seeing Sari my toddler son Xavier although having pretty good health had some eczema and was somewhat hyperactive and clingy. He also craved sugar and carbohydrates a lot.
Xav is now 4 years old and since being on NB his behaviour has improved markedly. He is more calm and easy to reason with. He has been assessed by a family therapist who said he not only meets but exceeds many of his developmental milestones. He has an excellent vocabulary and articulates himself well. He is never sick and has a full set of beautiful white teeth. His energy levels are seemingly endless however he is the first to say if he needs a rest or if it’s time to go to bed because he is tired. Sari is lovely to communicate with, she is kind and gentle and understanding. She wears a ready smile and always tried to help in whatever way she can. Being on nutritional Balancing takes the uncertainty out of parenting in a way as I can be assured that if Xavier is off or his behaviour changes I am doing the best I can from a nutritional and lifestyle point of view and the change could be a healing reaction or a need of change of program, both of which I have Sari to support us through. We love to visit Sari with the scenic views of Castlemaine surrounds and on the days where we have less time it’s very convenient to have a Skype appointment at home or even in the park while the kids play.
I would recommend Sari because she is a wealth of knowledge on natural health, healing and wellbeing. She is non judgmental and a good listener and gives the best service to her clients.
Energy, sleep, mood, clarity of mind have improved markedly
I initially contacted Sari as I was burnt out after my body was depleted from a long term battle with chronic illness (cured prior to engaging Sari) and a difficult university course. My first HTMA showed I was in a four lows pattern as well as being overloaded with various, heavy metals. Three months have passed since my initial test and my energy, sleep, mood and clarity of mind have improved markedly. My second test showed I was out of the four lows pattern. After experiencing such drastic changes in a short period of time, I am confident that continuation of the program will result in a return to optimal health.
During our Skype consultations Sari has been great to work with, as she is easy to get along with, caring, empathetic and a great communicator. Above all else she is very knowledgable about the program and confident in its ability to promote deep and lasting healing.
Because of Sari my quality of life continues to improve each week and I will definitely be recommending her to friends and family in the future.
Please do not hesitate to contact Sari if you are considering embarking upon the nutritional balancing program. You will not regret it!
wealth of knowledge…
Sari has been my nutritional balancing practitioner for nearly two years now. She has been a great help in interpreting my hair tests, and clearly has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to nutritional balancing and healing in general. Sari has a very kind and nurturing nature and this really shines through when dealing with her patients. It's obvious that Sari has benefited from the nutritional balancing program in her own life, and this experiential knowledge coupled with years of being a practitioner make her the perfect guide to walk others through the process.
I look forward to continuing to work with Sari on my own health journey, and know that I am in good hands.
R&R Challenge enabled me to introduce the concepts of NB at a steady pace
I very much enjoyed the R&R challenge. It enabled me to introduce the concepts of nutritional balancing at a steady pace, which helped me a great deal as I was very busy at the time when I began it. Made everything far less overwhelming.
I would recommend the R&R Challenge to family and friends, but would especially recommend the R&R Challenge to those who are very busy or easily overwhelmed. I rate the R&R Challenge 5 out of 5!
Energy increased dramatically, as well as my overall well-being.
I have to admit that this is one of the hardest programs I have ever tried, BUT THE RESULTS HAVE BEEN SO WORTH IT. My mineral readings just keep getting better and my heavy metals load have gone down dramatically. My energy has increased dramatically, as well as my overall well-being. A few times I have felt that I was going to be ill, the knowledge I have acquired through following this program have made me recover very quickly or was able to stop the illness dead in its tracks. And it is getting easier to follow with time, as the protocols become more and more a part of my lifestyle.
Sari is an incredibly knowledgeable holistic practitioner, a wonderful communicator who walks her talk.
I highly recommend her to everyone.
wonderful resource and motivational tool
Sari is very knowledgeable, supportive, non-judgemental and genuinely caring. The 12 week Challenge is a wonderful resource and motivational tool to have for this healing journey. It not only gives you the information of what to do, but also it helps explain why you are doing it and how to implement the changes. The weekly email was well timed, giving you enough time to read through the information, incorporate the changes and establish a routine before the next email arrived. The gradual implementation of some of the lifestyle or food changes each week made it manageable and not to daunting and the chart a great tool and reminder of your weekly goals. I highly recommend the R&R Challenge for anyone genuinely wanting to undertake and incorporate the NB Program into your life, it's a fantastic tool.
consultations.. by phone… worked well
All of my consultations with Sari have been by phone as we live in different States. This has worked well for me as I travel a fair bit and it is very convenient being able to schedule a consultation wherever I am... the results have been excellent.
the results have been excellent
I was reassured by Sari's confidence and faith in the Nutritional Balancing program and was very happy to find a practitioner who had specific and expert knowledge in treating adrenal fatigue. As she had tried many different methods for treating adrenal fatigue and had great confidence in this program, I was happy to follow it, and the results have been excellent.
At each consultation, Sari gives me feedback on my progress, based on the mineral analysis of my hair tests and is able to give her expert interpretation of how my recovery is progressing. Detoxing is a complex, long term process and I am grateful to have the supervision and reassurance of such an experienced practitioner to guide me and keep me committed to my recovery.
The diet recommended by Dr Wilson is easy to follow, and the added benefits are that it helps with weight management, digestion and keeping things moving.
I feel much much better since being on the program and no longer have the symptoms that first brought me to this treatment.
Anxiety, stress and insomnia….No longer have the symptoms
I have been in treatment with Sari Young for the past three years for Adrenal Fatigue. When I first found Sari I was suffering from anxiety, stress and insomnia as a result of my adrenal fatigue. I used to wake up most morning with a racing heartbeat, and found myself feeling stressed by even the smallest time pressure, such as when cooking eggs.
I no longer have the symptoms that first brought me to this treatment. However I am happy to continue with the program as Sari can see in the results that my health is still improving and I am keen to raise my health to an even better level.
I have no hesitation in recommending Sari as a practitioner, particularly for someone dealing with adrenal fatigue.
I have found Sari to be always professional, supportive and knowledgeable, and under her guidance I have followed the program for many months, feeling progressively better over the period.
the results are brilliant.
Thanks for all your help and the wonderful program. I’ve got to say it’s very difficult to do it 100%, but even at the level I/we have been doing it at, the results are brilliant. In every way, I/we are so much better physically, but also mentally. Once again, thank you for all your help.
Instrumental in my successful implementation…
For me, the R&R Challenge was instrumental in my successful implementation of the lifestyle overhaul that is Nutritional balancing! I like to jump into things straight away, and I can see now that it would have been too overwhelming to make all the changes at once. R&R helped me to slow down (a recurring theme these days) and take one step at a time. This package is all the things I like. It's methodical, practical, and means you don't have to think too much - just read the new email each week. A really helpful aspect for me, was having the daily 'to do' list, to print out. The best part by far, however, was having the support of Sari. It can be a daunting time in the beginning, with so many questions and symptoms. She truly has your back, and it was such a comfort to know that help and advice is only an email away. I would definitely recommend the R&R for other new to the NB program. It not only makes the journey feel stable and systematic, but it's all the info you need in one spot.
I liked the distribution of the challenges across the weeks very very well. At the beginning people have more drive and there was more to do and less when I became a little less motivated. The order of the challenges was great. I have learned lots and have incorporated lots- even having carrots daily.
The breakdown of challenges across all the weeks was very manageable, and as it’s broken down into weeks it helps so much. It was in perfect order. If there was any more information included, it would be very overwhelming, so the program was just right. The R&R Challenge helped me especially with the diet part... it’s always been my weakness and doing things in weeks helps so much then just going cold turkey. I really enjoyed the program, I had constant support throughout the program and didn’t feel alone. There were many times where I fell off the diet but with the support from Sari I was able to get back on track. It helps when you know that Sari is an email away and that you know that when you’re very stuck with something you can get that answer in a few days. I think Sari’s program has helped me so much and I believe this will help in my recovery. I look forward in continuing to work alongside Sari to get to my perfect health.
enjoyed the Challenge
I have very much enjoyed the Challenge. I just took it at my own pace, some weeks it took me two or three weeks to get through. I wanted to make sure I was doing things correctly and had read all the relevant articles before I moved onto the next thing. Some things I was aware of already and some was welcome guidance... I now see very clearly how my mental health is related to its dependence upon my body chemistry... The consequence of heavy metal toxicity is sobering and once again drives home the importance of adhering to a NBS program strictly... My attitude goals are learning to live simply with low stress, self love and letting go of the ego, openness to guidance, openness to compassion for oneself, and willingness to let go of all of one's past. I want to work on my own capacity of courage, fearlessness, relaxation and discipline :).
resourceful, kind, gentle, understanding
It’s nice to talk to someone who does NBS also who has kids and a husband and shares obstacles to the lifestyle and program. She is non-judgemental, listens closely and is lovely to my son too, providing him play things. Yes I would recommend Sari’s Natural Medicine to any of my friends who want to start a NBS program. Sari is resourceful, kind, gentle, understanding and easy to work with. I rate Sari’s Natural Medicine 10 out of 10.
Bipolar, arthritis, binge eating
My original diagnosis was bipolar, arthritis, binge eating, fatigue. I wanted to feel well. I was tired of experimenting with different modalities, over exercising, beating myself up and feeling drained, unhappy and burnt-out. Since being Sari’s patient I have much better sleep, peace, better digestion, better insight, better skin, weight loss, better relationships, better lifestyle, better attitude, better emotional regulation. Sari is lovely and concerned for my wellbeing. She is patient and understanding and easy going. The clinic is in the lovely countryside to visit. Sari is always happy to see us and greets us warmly and offers lovely organic tea to drink!
