  • "Andrea at Natural Solutions is my first port of call when my body is not functioning the way I want it to. Unfortunately I live too far away to see her for face to face consultations but by talking to her on Skype she always seems to come up with a solution. I have used her for my children and my husband as well and her support has always been fantastic. When my husband went through complications after a medical procedure she sorted him out with supplements and suggestions of how to deal with it, which made it all more manageable. Great service, Andrea! Many thanks. "Ancki Danby, Southampton
