When I first consulted Sona, I’d suffered from GERD for 5 years and it had made my life pretty miserable. I also had various childhood allergies and elevated levels of cholesterol. Today, I feel indebted to her, as her treatment has been nothing short of life-changing. Sona has helped me to lead a disciplined life and I am proud to use her as my functional medicine practitioner.
When I went to Sona, I had low energy, was overweight, and suffered from diarrhea, joint pains, and dizziness. I also had stubborn psoriasis, a condition that 12 years of expensive creams hadn’t cured. Sona explained that there was no magic pill: all I needed was patience and discipline – and boy, did it pay off! Today I feel really youthful, my digestion is fantastic, I’ve dropped 10 kilos and my psoriasis is almost completely gone. Thank you so much Sona!
Thoroughly stressed out, I was an encyclopedia of medical issues. Becoming more aware of them simply made them worse. I was so grateful to find Sona, who was able to guide me in discovering the root cause of my health problems. With tremendous compassion, wisdom and skill, she showed me the path to healing. Six months later, I feel better than I have in years and am honestly magnificently happy.
A year after my doctor put me on blood pressure medication, I felt as if my body was shutting down. Within three months of seeing Sona, my blood pressure normalized, my sleep was restful and my energy returned (along with my libido!). Now, two years on, my blood pressure remains normal, even though I’m off medication and supplements. Not only would I recommend Sona, I already have done so. She has successfully treated several friends and family. What I really like about Sona is her no-nonsense approach. She keeps things simple and following her clear guidelines, really does lead to positive results.
My autistic son was five when we first came to see you. I cannot believe how much he had improved. He used to be incredibly hyper and nothing could keep his attention. He was unable to hold his pencil on his own and could barely construct a few words. After just two months, he now sleeps interrupted for over 10 hours, the constant yawning has stopped and he can say Grace all the way through. He can even hold his pencil on his own and join the dots without help. He’s now putting sentences together too. I look forward to more improvements.
Every time I mention my nutritionist to someone, I only have glowing things to say. You literally changed my life! You made me see that I wasn't condemned to having hideous skin all my life. You made me question my relationship to food, to water, to medicines. Having been an over-medicated person for so long, I'm glad to say that I'm a far better person now than when I made that first consult with you. Flare-ups are a thing of the past, now that I have learnt to listen to my body. My mind, my body and my spirit thank you!
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, Sona came highly recommended. She is the friendliest, most understanding listener, and I will forever be grateful for her incredible encouragement and foresight. After just three months, true to her word, my blood tests revealed that I was in an excellent position to fight any disease. Three years on, I feel really well. Many of the principles that Sona instilled in me are now a way of life (it’s so encouraging to see that she practices what she preaches). If anything ever comes up regarding my or my family’s wellness, Sona is just a phone call away.
I have “stalked” Sona for years, and when I finally got to meet her, my expectations were surpassed. In a world of easy-access, fast-food solutions, Sona combines the scientific precision of a UK-trained clinical nutritionist, with a rarely-seen, no-judgment empathy. Her pragmatic approach allows you to make tough decisions for yourself, without the usual feeling of being inundated with drugs and restrictions. What I ultimately learned is that I am my own healer. I learned to eat on time and I learned to eat what my body needs, not what it may crave at the time. And I even learned to love the things that I know are good for me, including eight hours of blissful, uninterrupted sleep.
I simply don’t have the words to adequately express how much of a blessing Sona has been to my health. For many years, I suffered with sinus issues and was forced to carry my inhaler wherever I went. Having read her articles in the newspaper, I knew I needed to consult her and yet I procrastinated. When I finally made the effort to see her, I got the relief I so desired after just one week of following her instructions – and I have been free of any sinus issues since. That, together with improved general health, energy and a sense of calm, I genuinely feel like a new person. Thank you Sona, from the bottom of my heart.
For over 20 years, I suffered from excruciatingly painful migraines and, despite visiting the best doctors here and abroad, my condition just kept deteriorating. Strong painkillers were a way of life. But the weekly attacks also impinged on other areas of my life. My sense of balance had also begun to suffer, to the extent that I couldn’t visit public places like banks or supermarkets for fear of falling. Sona's treatment feels as if it were magic and I now live my life to the fullest. I will forever be grateful to her.
Before seeing Sona, I’d suffered from stomach pain, bloating and headaches for several months. I’d been to various hospitals, but after all the tests (which never showed anything), I would be given drugs and told the pain would go away. It never did. My pain used to get so intense that I sometimes had to sit or lie on my side, but after just a few weeks of seeing Sona, the pain disappeared! I had honestly forgotten what it felt like to be normal. And I had kept postponing my visit to her clinic but thankfully, I finally went and I’m so glad I did.
Troubled by my constant coughing and wheezing, my wife, an avid reader of Sona’s columns, booked me in at the clinic. At the time, I remember taking a lot of medication. Sona’s approach was simple but effective and, two months later, I felt like a completely different person. To this day, I truly thank God that I met Sona.
