I get it. I’ve been there.
In fact my story started in the same way. In 2013, with no periods, constant gastrointestinal discomfort and no medicine that helped at all, I decided to take matters into her own hands. Driven by a desire to socialise with friends, put on a swimming costume, not feel like an alien in my own body, a chain reaction started. Since then, I’ve been studying, researching, testing and trialling - all so you don’t have to.

"Rachel is such a lovely soul and so willing to help. From the beginning she made me feel very comfortable and was always willing to help explain what was going on and how her suggestions were going to tackle my problem. My immune system is so much stronger and my quality of life is so much higher than it was a year ago and I really owe a lot of that to Rachel for being my guide. I am so grateful for all her help. I always say that everything we need to be healthy exists in a natural form and Rachel helped to reinforce that belief!"
