Clinical Cases

The clinical cases section offers real-life examples of consultations, illustrating my personalized approach and practical strategies. Gain insight into my consultation process, see how I address unique health concerns, and empower clients to make informed decisions for lasting results.

Case 1

Digestion & Menopause symphtoms

A 61-year-old woman sought to enhance her digestion and focus on gut health to achieve more regular bowel movements. Additionally, she experienced menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and insomnia. Despite taking soy isoflavone supplements for years, she still endured at least three hot flushes daily and at night. Her levels of stress were low.

 

In the first consultation, I observed her daily consumption of several slices of brown bread and up to eight cups of black tea, despite an otherwise balanced diet with minimal sweets. We identified gluten and caffeine as potential contributors to her slow digestion and sleep issues. During our initial session, we decided to cut back on bread consumption and introduce homemade gluten-free alternatives, for which I provided recipes. Additionally, we aimed to increase whole grain intake through salads, risottos, and other options. The second adjustment involved reducing black tea consumption by half and substituting it with a custom herbal tea blend containing red clover, sage, nettle, rose, and peppermint to support hormonal balance.

The iridology examination revealed circulatory congestion markings in the sclera. To address this, a diet rich in omega-3 fats was advised, along with incorporating cayenne pepper and garlic into meals. Additionally, a dark area around the pupil suggested low stomach acid, leading to difficulty digesting animal protein as she confirmed. Digestive enzymes before meals were recommended. Examination of the collarette indicated potential genetic predispositions to sugar imbalance and insulin resistance. To manage sugar cravings, a digestive bitter formula was suggested.

During the second session, she expressed feeling like a new woman. She was pleasantly surprised that simply removing gluten from her diet significantly improved her bowel movements and reduced her hot flushes to just several per week. Delighted with the treatment and recommendations, she decided to continue on her own.
 

Case 2

Low energy levels and digestive symphoms

A 60-year-old woman sought help for low energy levels and symptoms of bloating, abdominal discomfort, and constipation. Despite dietary adjustments and weight gain over the years, medical tests revealed no specific digestive issues, including a negative H. pylori test. Her high-stress job and long hours, combined with family concerns, contributed to elevated stress levels

 

During the initial consultation, I gathered comprehensive information about her health history, family background, sleep habits, exercise routine, lifestyle factors, and dietary patterns. It was noted that she experienced sluggish bowel movements, with eliminations occurring every two days, leading to bloating and gas. Additionally, visible undigested food particles were observed in her stools. She found herself rotating the same ingredients in her diet, unable to repeat any food without experiencing discomfort. Even foods she initially found agreeable became painful after several days of consumption.

During the iridology examination, markings indicating a potentially chronically congested digestive tract were evident. Her slow transit and constipation resulted in fecal matter remaining in the system for extended periods, leading to gas, bloating, and discomfort. Additionally, markings of low stomach acid were observed, corroborated by undigested food visible in her stool. An enzyme supplement was advised.

During our initial session, we prioritized hydration, incorporating soups, smoothies, and herbal teas alongside an inulin-root decoction formula to support intestinal flora and soothe the digestive tract. To address her sleep struggles and stress levels, I formulated a sleep aid and a digestive powder for gentle detoxification.

In subsequent sessions, we tackled her diet by identifying new foods to try and categorizing her current foods based on symptoms. We gradually replaced problematic foods with alternatives and experimented with different cooking methods. I guided her in creating easy, nourishing meals for work, focusing on stress-reducing foods like broths, smoothies, and whole-grain salads with increased protein.

The herbal formula evolved over time, incorporating more demulcents, nervines, adaptogens, digestives, and alteratives to enhance elimination and stress resilience. After 8 months, she experienced significant pain reduction, reduced belching and bloating, and no undigested food in her stools. Despite ongoing job stress, she made strides toward a career change and retirement, prioritizing self-care and improved lifestyle habits.

Case 3

Fertility

A 32-year-old woman sought fertility treatment with no apparent obstacles to conception after both she and her partner underwent tests. Managing her own business added to her stress levels. While she had a history of endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome, symptoms had diminished due to prior hormonal treatment.

In our initial session, we focused on dietary adjustments, increasing protein and fiber intake, hydrating adequately, and reducing caffeine and alcohol consumption. She maintained an active lifestyle with regular exercise, including running and gym visits. I recommended a high-quality prenatal multivitamin and educated her about sugar cravings and imbalances in the body. Together, we devised a plan to manage sugar cravings during exercise. Additionally, I provided a digestive formula to support gentle detoxification alongside dietary changes.

An integral aspect of fertility treatment involves learning to track basal body temperature and cervical mucus to identify fertile days and understand one's body. Tracking her cycle revealed potentially low progesterone levels. I developed an herbal blend tailored to support hormonal balance and manage stress, adjusting the formula based on cycle symptoms.

During the iridology examination, I observed signs suggestive of anxiety, prompting recommendations for relaxation therapies such as deep breathing, meditation, and massage. Yellow pigmentation outside the nutritive zone indicated potential kidney stress, guiding dietary adjustments toward a low-acid forming diet and incorporating kidney-supporting herbs like corn silk and dandelion leaf. Additionally, pigmentation in the liver area informed efforts to balance hormones and enhance menstrual health.

Her husband also received support for gut health issues due to food intolerances. Complementing diet and herbal protocols, additional therapies were utilized. Less than 10 months later, they joyfully received news of her pregnancy, a testament to their dedication and comprehensive approach to treatment.
