Discover Nutrition » Client Feedback

"Caroline came to our centre and gave a talk for our members on healthy eating, reducing sugar in our diet and on losing weight. She was fantastic, so professional and very easy to listen to. Our members were very impressed with what they learned and are hopefully putting all her good tips into practice. There was close to 100 people at the talk and Caroline had time for everyone's questions and is extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of nutrition. I would definitely hire Caroline again and I highly recommend her for any large event. I'm sure she is excellent one-to-one also." 
Horse & Jockey Leisure Centre, Thurles.

"Caroline really listens, which is very rare nowadays. She went that extra mile to ensure that I got the best possible nutrition advice and didn't give up at the first hurdle. She used her research and questionning skills to help find a solution to my digestive problems."
Margaret Jernigan, Kilkenny.

Energy Booster Day" Workshop Feedback 2015

"I went to Caroline Seale's "Energy Booster Day" workshop in Thurles. This day was a very informative and helpful one for me where I learnt some of the reasons why my energy levels are low. There was a nice friendly group present and between trying a new drink - Chicory (a coffee replacement) and learning new snack and meal ideas this day will lead to a definite improvement in my health and my aims to eat healthy foods."

General Feedback

Caroline is truly passionate about what she does. Since she was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (M.E.), she has completely changed her lifestyle to a healthier option, in a way which can be difficult for some people to achieve. She found out the causes behind her illness, and did what had to be done to get herself better. She did not settle for the change for herself, she then went and studied Nutrition while carrying on with her job and dealing with her illness, to be able to help others to have a better lifestyle and a chance at a healthier life. Caroline has compassion and empathy for others and is a great listener.
Ruth Kelly, Galway.

I chose to contact Caroline for a consultation by Skype after reading that she too has suffered from health issues in the past. I have been suffering from increasing health related problems for a number of years. Caroline was more than understanding and helpful in making me see what was behind all of these issues. After a month of following her recommendations I have never felt better. I am so much more relaxed with an improved mood and outlook on life. She has helped me sort out my hormones, digestion, headaches, and stress among other things.  Thank you Caroline!

Male aged 66, overweight, high blood pressure, high fasting glucose (Client No: MOB250714)

Hi, I'm Martin, and I did the 8 week nutritional/weight loss programme with Caroline Seale. The target set was 10 lbs weight loss in the 8 weeks, which I'm glad to say I over achieved by losing 16 lbs in total, which I found very rewarding and satisfying. Health wise my blood pressure has lowered and my fasting blood glucose levels are way down. I also feel alot better too. So I would highly recommend anyone struggling with weight problems to contact Caroline. I never once felt hungry in the 8 weeks, and Caroline came up with some great menus which were new to me, but were very nutritious. A big THANK YOU once again Caroline. Regards, Martin.

Female aged 43, tired all the time, headaches, very poor concentration (Client No: CDG100614)

I came to Caroline with little energy, daily headaches, very poor concentration and short attention span and a general feeling of being unwell. I had these symptoms for over 6 years and they were getting worse. I had been to many doctors and specialists but nothing seemed to work.

After 6 weeks on Caroline's recommendations I started to feel less anxious and more relaxed, my concentration improved and I started to feel a lot healthier and happier.

I feel it is very important to get help from someone who knows what they are talking about, like Caroline, and not to try restricting foods etc without professional help. There is so much information out there it can be hard to know where to start and what to believe and that is where Caroline was the most helpful as I didn't have to waste my time or money on things that didn't work.

Female aged 40, digestion and hormonal issues (Client No: SM270913)

I first contacted Caroline after I discovered I was going through early menopause. I felt terrible – lots of headache, hair loss, low mood, hot flushes, anxiety and panic attacks, craving sugary foods and I was putting on weight. I had also suffered with IBS for 20 years. My GP recommended HRT but I wanted to avoid that.

Caroline took a lot of time to consider all the different aspects of what was making me feel bad. She suggested I look at my diet to reduce the sugar and avoid certain foods (wheat in particular) and to take a range of supplements to heal my digestion system first and foremost. Alongside this she discussed all the lifestyle habits I could look at to help reduce stress and begin to feel better. I did all of these as best I could. Over a period of months I have begun to feel much better and I’ve lost the weight I put on. I am still going through the menopause and Caroline has helped me understand what is going on better and how certain vitamins, minerals and herbs can help deal with the symptoms.

Caroline has been so helpful in breaking down all the things I needed to do into manageable steps and has given encouraging guidance. I felt Caroline really listened to me and dealt with me as an individual and paid attention to the small things. I feel I’ve learned alot about myself and about food/nutrition - from the process too.

Female aged 33, digestive problems, occasional headaches, low energy [client no: MK171112]

My sister recommended I see Caroline for a consultation as I was suffering from constant digestive problems (belching, bloating, constipation/diarrhoea, problems digesting certain foods, occasional stomach pain & cramps) over the past 3 years along with occasional headaches and low energy.

Before I met with Caroline I filled out a health questionnaire that Caroline went through before we met. After going through my health history she recommended that I do a comprehensive stool analysis test and it came as a huge relief when I got the results, as the report showed up the root cause of my symptoms. I had 2 parasite infections and a Candida yeast infection!

Caroline worked closely with my GP who recommended a conventional approach with prescribed medication to kill the infections and Caroline then followed up with her natural remedies and personalised nutrition advice to help heal my digestive system.

I also mentioned to Caroline that my husband and son had similar digestive problems and it turns out my husband too has a parasite infection and my son is currently being tested.

Since following Caroline's advice I'm feeling so much better.  I've had to make some tough dietary changes but determined to keep going as I haven't felt this well in years!" 

 

Exercise induced asthma

 

“I booked an appointment with Discover Nutrition to get some advice on healthy eating to improve my asthma and energy. I’m a hurler and exercise up to 30 hours a week, so I was interested in finding out how nutrition could improve my health and sports performance.

 

The nutrition plan that Caroline personalised for me, really made a difference to my health. After 4 weeks I noticed a huge improvement in my asthma and energy levels. Thanks again for everything.”

Weight loss and increased energy

"I attended Discover Nutrition in September 2012. I found the whole experience excellent and very rewarding. The consultation process was so comprehensive; Caroline sent me a questionnaire to fill out before the consultation so she could complete research specific to my health and lifestyle and could have a tailor made information pack ready for me on the day. The advice and information I received was easy to understand and very realistic to implement into my day to day life. Since visiting Caroline and following the lifestyle plan she recommended I have lost weight, gained energy , and no longer have sugar cravings and feel like I'm on a diet. I would recommend anyone who has tried every diet under the sun to go and see Caroline."

Weight loss

"I have recently completed the Weight Loss Programme with Discover Nutrition.

Before starting the programme I had preconceptions of being miserable, hungry and expecting tough times for the 12 weeks ahead, but even after my first meeting with Caroline, these quickly disappeared. The programme made such positive changes to the way that I thought about my food and to my eating habits, not just for the duration of the programme, but also for the future.

Caroline was incredibly supportive throughout. She provided some great menu plans, which were easy to incorporate into any schedule. She was very encouraging and was happy to discuss any issues or changes that arised during the programme and gave me a wide variety of recipes to try out, which was fantastic! Thanks to Caroline’s support and extensive nutritional knowledge I was able to easily reach my target weight and I have learned a ‘life lesson’ about food.

I would highly recommend Discover Nutrition to anyone embarking on a Weight Loss journey."

Pregnancy

I went to see Caroline for nutrition advice during my pregnancy as I was keen to have a healthy pregnancy and baby. I was having energy dips in the afternoon, had bouts of heart burn and had difficulty concentrating at work. Within a month of starting, with some easy diet changes my mental clarity had improved, I was feeling more energetic and I noticed an improvement in my digestion. Caroline’s advice was really helpful and motivating. She took the time to explain the benefits of making certain changes to my diet and provided some really tasty healthy recipes.

Post pregnancy weight loss

Having gained a considerable amount of weight during my pregnancy I contacted Caroline in a bid not only to lose weight but to get a better understanding of maintaining the weight loss and how to eat properly, staying fuller for longer. I was surprised to learn so much about healthy eating, and the composition of foods I already enjoyed. It never felt like a diet, just swapping for healthier alternatives and including exercise into my daily routine. I lost a total of two stone which has stayed off and we now enjoy healthier food as part of our daily family diet. I cannot thank Caroline enough who has been there for me, literally every inch of the way!

Arthritic pain

I decided to make an appointment with Caroline as I felt motivated to make changes to my diet given the recent history of heart problems in my family. Also I was suffering from a lot of arthritic aches and pains in my toes and thumb in the past 2 years along with frequent colds in the winter. As I have a busy family life, I found it really handy that Caroline was able to do the consultation at my home. She spent the time taking a detailed account of my health history and explained the possible contributors to my health concerns. We worked together to agree on diet & lifestyle changes that were practical, achievable and realistic. A course of supplements was also recommended to boost my nutrient levels. Caroline also recommended a test to check my mineral status and asked that I have my cholesterol checked by my GP. In my followup visit 6 weeks later, the pain in my toes and thumb had reduced significantly and I noticed an improvement in my energy levels. It was also great to see I had also lost a few pounds in weight and I was generally feeling much better in myself. Caroline is highly thorough in her approach. I found her to be extremely professional and passionate about her work and I highly recommend her as a nutritional therapist.
