I decided to see Carla following recommendations from friends. I wanted to improve my running and times as well as lose weight. I knew some things were not right based on past advice I was given and wanted to change this. Following seeing Carla, it was clear to see that the changes that she had recommended had a huge impact on my performance, leading to amazing times in races. I achieved levels I would never have expected to achieve. Not only this but she took on board all my goals and worked a plan to achieve all of these. I would highly recommend Wild Healthy to anyone. She was always there to help no matter what my question was.
I attended Wild Healthy Nutrition as I was recovering from glandular fever and was sick of having no energy and weight gain. Since attending Wild Healthy, my energy levels have increased significantly allowing me to return to more of my daily activi-ties. This has also allowed me to start focusing on other aspects of my life through my nutrition. I would definitely recommend Wild Healthy to everyone. The benefits have been great and I think others would benefit greatly from her help!
Having had H-Pylori in 2014, I really wanted to get advice on how to maintain my digestive health and also was keen to get nutritional advice regarding general wellness. My partner and I were also planning to try for a baby in the coming months and I wanted to get on top of my nutritional health for this reason also. Carla was so supportive and welcoming when I went to see her and really took the time to find out as much out about me and my circumstances as possible which immediately put me at ease and gave me great confidence in her and her abilities. After our one hour consultation she sent me an incredibly comprehensive report which included a range of suggestions for my diet and well-ness overall. Something that I really appreciated was Carla's attention to the role of stress in my life and the importance of activities such as mindfulness and deep breathing exercises. Her friendly and warm manner in combination with expertise and clear passion for nutritional well-being made this such a positive experience for me. And at the same time she was realistic with me in terms of what was manageable and what would fit in with my lifestyle. Carla also checked in with me by email a couple of months after our session which I thought was a really lovely touch.
I had been feeling like I was stuck in a rut in terms of my eating habits. A fast paced lifestyle, living on my own and lots of stress triggers meant my food intake had become an-other thing to worry over. Was I eating a balanced diet, how could I get more energy from my food, how do I curb my sweet tooth, how do I get better at being food prepared and ready for my day? I also wanted to find a way to help my digestion and stave off bouts of IBS related issues. Carla of Wild Healthy seemed to be the woman for me, straight talking, engaged in her own practice and so supportive on a daily basis with useful information through her social media. Carla's approach was thorough and she backed up a lot of her advice with some fairly impressive scientific explanations. She drew a diagram of the digestive system, and really got into the details of how it works and how I was overriding its basic functions. It really stuck with me. But all the science aside, Carla was direct and fair and funny and most of all had bucket loads of empathy. She's not just preaching good practice, she's a champion of change and being your best, and at the heart of it all she really cares. And that is incredibly encouraging and motivating. I couldn't recommend Carla highly enough.
I decided to contact Wild Healthy as I had been feeling pretty crap for some time, was kinda getting nowhere with my GP, and felt things were getting worse. Blood tests showed that my thyroid function was borderline underactive, and this was what really made me take action. I also had really poor digestive function, have done for years, but it was just getting worse and worse. Carla sent me a comprehensive questionnaire which I completed and returned to her (as I live some distance from her base in Dublin). Very quickly I received Carla’s recommendations and meal plans. I pretty much put her advice into action immediately and within a couple of days I honestly started to feel better. My energy levels increased dramatically and my symptoms decreased greatly. Digestively, I cannot remember a time when my body has performed as well as it is now. I had my thyroid bloods redone by my GP at the 6 week mark and my thyroid function had completely normalised. When I left the surgery, I called Carla to tell her the great news, I was so happy and relieved, and there were tears! She checked in with me by email/text every few weeks to see how I was getting on or if we needed to change anything. I am happy to report that all is fine so far, but should things change, Wild Healthy will be my first port of call.
Carla has been a brilliant asset to our Happy Heart Courses, providing very helpful advice and support to attendees. Her approach to nutrition is very practical, which people really like, and she has a lovely manner that immediately puts you at ease. We love having Carla as part of our team to help people to be healthier and happier.
The Happy Pear, David and Stephen Flynn
