Avril, 30's Douglas

I had absolutely no motivation to go and lose weight but iI made an appointment with Mary to see how she could help – iI never knew what to snack on except for a scone and jam and iI have now been seeing Mary for 3 months, I have lost 3 stone and my life has totally changed – I eat a breakfast every day, I eat 2 healthy snacks and I watch my portion sizes as much as possible and I am now a healthy BMI so thank you Mary.

John, Early 50's, Ballygarvan

I  had no energy, had constant cravings and was a vegetarian who didn’t really like fish either.  Mary then helped me to find new protein type foods which I had never heard about before including quinoa and tofu and she also helped me find nice fish dishes to enjoy, she also helped me choose snacks I really enjoyed and still do and she also helped me lose weight – I had tried so many other weight loss programmes before and none of them worked.  I cannot thank Mary enough for all her help as she really motivated me to make these simple changes and I am feeling so well now.

Sheila, Fermoy, Cork

I wanted to lose 2 stone so I went to see Mary to see if she could help me give up all the bad food that I actually enjoyed – After just one month I was down 1 stone and I had so much energy and my skin was feeling really good – I would highly recommend Mary to help you lose weight.

Peter, Mid 30's, Cork City

Mary I am now down 2 stone since coming to visit you earlier this year. I took up more exercise as you recommended and followed all your nutrition tips and advice. My hair had got very thin before I came to you and has now all grown back with even more just like a baby’s new hair. I can highly recommend you to anyone. I never thought I’d be so committed to all the days of fitness and preparing nice food but I just fit it in. I feel great and will be 60 next week and looking forward to so slipping in to a new wardrobe. You started me off so thanks a million

Roisin, 60's Blackrock

Congratulations Mary. You changed my life with your advice and encouragement.

Sarah Conroy, 40's Cork

Sometimes you just need a kick start and Mary Carmody was that exact kick start that I needed. Mary is so personable and such an expert on so many areas of nutrition. The plan that Mary put together for me is extremely easy to follow and worked in with a busy life style so I had no excuses and I am delighted to say I am still working to that same plan. Thanks Mary for such a fantastic service.

Mary Anne, Cork

I made an appointment with Mary Carmody because I was suffering from fungal nail infections and yeast infections and generally coming down with infections regularly despite eating a healthy diet. I already had my suspicions that I had a yeast overgrowth and had started to change my diet in some ways but I wanted to get some testing done to see what came up in the results. I was very shocked to find that I showed a strong intolerance to wheat, cow's milk and yeast. I was a little overwhelmed to discover that I would have to cut these out of my diet for a full three months and found this a daunting prospect. However, Mary was very helpful and informative and provided me with all the help I needed in terms of advice on foods to eat, foods to avoid and where to shop! I was also very impressed by the holistic approach that she adopted and she offered advice to try and improve other aspects of my life such as reducing stress and promoting relaxation.  I have lost weight and feel so much better now and am a lot more positive now about my new diet and the alternatives that are out there to help. The whole experience has opened my eyes to a whole world of foods that I didn't know existed and I feel that I have learned a lot in the process. I would recommend anyone who suspects they may have a food sensitivity or intolerance to seek advice from Mary.

Eleanor, mid 40's Cork

I have tried all types of diets and none of them worked before.   Since January, I have followed Mary’s diet and advice and found out which foods I was intolerant to and cut them out (I didn't know exactly what I was intolerant to until I did the test). I've lost two stone, look 15 years younger and have the energy levels I had when I was in my 30's. IT has been a total life transformation for me and I will keep it up now as I now know how to eat properly.

My 6 year old daughter had a rather nasty rash behind her knees and arms which I had always treated with a hydrocortisone cream. Each time was more severe as not only had she had actually broken the skin on the rash and caused a bleed in these two areas but her the area surrounding her eyes was also full of this nasty rash. When I spoke to Mary prior to attending her clinic she immediately alluded to the fact that the cause of the rash was coming from her gut. She recommended that I pop up to her premises and she would perform a blood test on her and send it off to see what food intolerances she may have or else I could do the test myself (A York test I think she mentioned).When I arrived with my 6 year old daughter, Mary immediately put her at ease and distracted her to the point where there was no drama from my daughter when Mary was taking the blood. It was all a very easy experience. Two days later it was discovered that my daughter had a very high intolerance to two main foods. Mary gave me the comprehensive test results and a booklet explaining what I should do next. The follow up treatment that I received from Mary was second to none. She has the most amazing wealth of knowledge in her chosen field. I received a comprehensive overview of how to move forward and what substitutes I can use so as we can have normal day to day food in our house. The amazing thing was that her rash cleared up completely in 3 days initially which was unbelievable. Mary advised me that more than likely my daughter got this food intolerance from either one of her parents. So now I too am following the same diet as my daughter and we are all rash free in our house. Thank you Mary for being so wonderful.

CHILDREN

I took my 2 year old son to see Mary as I was desperate to find something that might help him. Prior to seeing Mary, my son had been in hospital about 8 times in 2 years starting at 6 weeks of age, with asthma type symptoms (I say that because at his age they don't really diagnose it as asthma - hoping that they will grow out of it). We had countless South Doc and GP visits, I had tried cranial osteopathy, switching to goats milk formula, salt therapy and other allergy testing and felt like I was getting nowhere. Through Mary my son had the York/Lorisian blood Intolerance Test carried out and it showed him to be intolerant to dairy predominantly and some other foods. We made the switch instantly and haven't looked back. I would be slow to say he's 'cured' but the fact is, it has been several months since we made the changes to his diet and he has not been sick. With Mary's help we came up with alternatives to dairy etc. to ensure his nutritional needs are still being met. I was not keen to remove dairy from his diet but seeing him so well in the last couple of months it is certainly worth it, thank you Mary for all your support- I can now sleep again at night.

'At first I went to Mary for a Food Intolerance test as I hadn’t been feeling well. I also had a very limited diet and was looking for advice on the right foods to eat. Mary took the blood prick food intolerance test and a few days later I had an hour-long phone consultation ( as this suited me better) where Mary gave me advice on a good dietary plan and supplements. During the consultation she also spoke to me about the nutritional value of certain foods. I found Mary to be extremely knowledgeable about nutrition and health. It has only been two weeks since my consultation but I feel much better and healthier. I would highly recommend Mary to anyone looking for help with their nutrition and health in the future.

Lisa, Early 30's Midleton

Mary Carmody is a lovely lady who is very friendly and non-judgemental. I have a thyroid condition which makes it very difficult for me to lose weight and after having my baby (18 months ago), the weight starting increasing and increasing. I felt terribly tired and I also suffer from IBS and hiatus hernia plus I have sinus issues and eczema. I went to Mary and she advised me on how to eat correctly so I started a healthier diet immediately. I have lost 10% of my body weight already and I feel and look much healthier. Most of my symptoms of IBS, hiatus hernia, sinus and eczema have decreased significantly if not altogether. Mary has changed my way of life for the better and always offers support to me too so I cannot thank her enough for this. Thanks again

Evelyn, 34 Cork

Before I went to see Mary I was very limited with my diet. Not eating vegetables or a balanced diet at all. I originally went to Mary to improve my migraines and do a good intolerance test and I did all that and also lost 3 pounds.  I didn't realise how good I'd feel after. I would highly recommend Mary as she has helped me out with my diet and lifestyle and I feel amazing.

Ali, Teenager, Carrigaline

My GP was insisting that I go on blood pressure tablets... I was resisting. I said I will try to bring down my blood pressure by making lifestyle changes..simple -- I'll eat healthier and exercise more....every Monday I'd start...and by every Tuesday I had failed...again and again and again.... A friend suggested I make an appointment to visit Mary......that was 5 months ago and now I am 3 stone lighter -- my blood pressure is perfect 122/67 -- I feel fantastic -- I'm enjoying the taste of food and I'm never hungry... Thank you Mary....thank you....

Tony, 50's Cork City

I've tried many different diets over the years. I've gone from 129kg to 82kg in the past but always struggled to maintain a healthy weight. I have always trained very hard but the results didn't follow. I decided to see a nutritionist and read good reviews about Mary. Went to see Mary and must say I'm just sorry I didn't see her before now. I'vw lost 2.5 stone in the space of 3 months. I also travel with work quite often which was always my excuse but with Mary's help and advice it's not an issue now. I didn't get any special diet etc I was simply eating the wrong foods at the wrong times etc., now I'm fit and healthy in the best condition of my life and have never had so much energy. I'm only 30 years old so Mary has really changed my lifestyle for the long term. I'm 100% confident I can maintain my weight very easily now. I think the main thing Mary offers is that she is practical which is very important for most people. Can't recommend Mary enough.

Barry, 30’s - Cork

I had no idea my body fat was so high and my metabolic age so high also until I got the print out from Mary on her fab machine, I felt depressed when I first visited Mary but as the weeks went by and I combined exercise as recommended by Mary and followed her tips on diet and regularly eating snacks etc, my body fat and metabolic age and weight has continually come down and I’m feeling so happy now – thanks a mill

Jesse, Mid 40's, Donnybrook

We really enjoyed Mary’s course (my friend and I) and we were both able to spur each other on which was great so now we are enjoying lots of simple healthy snacks and smoothies and energy is great and aches and pains have gone.
