Carole’s Philosophy

Carole believes that our health is affected by our total load of stresses. Be they, hitherto unidentified toxins in the environment, nutritional deficiencies; eating the wrong foods for each person as a unique individual as well as excess physical or emotional stress.   Carole also takes into account genetic susceptibilities and, most importantly, biochemical individualities. Her treatments involve reducing these stresses to allow each person a better chance of recovery.

Carole recovered from Chronic Fatigue with this approach as have many of her patients. She has now treated a few thousand patients of all age groups suffering from a diverse range of illnesses with her combination of individualised nutrition and herbal medicine. Her results have been extremely successful.
