At the age of 14, my son was diagnosed with OCD. The medical advice provided to us, was for my son to take prescribed drugs for the rest of his life.
Knowing the dangers and side effects associated with prescribed drugs, I was reluctant to go down the band aid path, which could create a bigger problem with time.
As a family we became devastated and helpless watching our son, abnormally anxious, emotionally distraught, and clearly turbulent, whilst entering a dark space in his life. In despair and desperate to find a solution to help our son, we were one week away from Christmas and knew all businesses were closing for the year. It was after closing business hours, I sent an email to Mark, (referred by a friend) and to my delight, I received a response. He reached out and became our life line before we even had met him. Just this action alone, I felt assured that someone genuinely listened and cared.
Nothing was too hard and no time was inconvenient.
After standard pathology - urine and bloods tests, Mark determined that our son had elevated Whole Blood Histamine levels and Pyrrole Disorder, which, at times, may not be tested for. Additional nutritional deficits were also revealed. We had no idea of the impact vitamin and mineral deficiencies played on psychological and neurological health. He was clouded with thoughts and unable to focus.
Mark looked at the whole picture first, before pinpointing what treatment plan was needed. He adjusted his diet (nutrition) and prescribed supplements tailored to the results of his pathology. After a few weeks of treatment, we could see huge improvements all round in our son. The treatment Mark prescribed enabled our son to get through his days so much better. Life for our family is so much better now. My son in ongoing with his condition, however the days are so much brighter and refreshing, and the anxiety has lifted. Mark has given him tools to help manage his condition.
Thank you Mark, your holistic approach, guidance and immense knowledge has not only improved my son’s health, but also the health of our family. You have educated, and enlightened us on the importance of good nutrition, and the effects it can have on your mind and body. I would (and do) highly recommend Mark, and evidenced based naturopathy, as a complementary therapy to support anybody facing challenges pertaining to a health issue. Mark knows what he is doing, and genuinely strives to achieve optimum health for his clients.
You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
