  • "I was very run down, lacked energy and was finding it very difficult to control my weight when I first consulted with Andrea.  We talked through my issues very thoroughly during the first consultation and Andrea recommended that I take an adrenal fatigue test.  This highlighted that I had an abnormal cortisol pattern throughout the day and was affecting my energy and appetite - I had intense sugar cravings from mid afternoon onwards.  On the back of the results of this test, Andrea recommended a new diet and a course of supplements to restore normal cortisol levels and revive my tired adrenals. I now have more energy and do not have the same urges for sugar during the afternoons. I am also sleeping much better now as well.  I am also sleeping much better now too (after 5 years of 2am waking!).  "Elizabeth
