“I wanted to update you on recent sperm test results I received. Compared to my last test 8 months ago the morphology increased from 3% to 35% and my DNA Fragmentation went from 37% to 22%. I could only have achieved these results with your assistance and expertise and would like to thank you for all the guidance”.
“Myself and my husband met with you in July following a miscarriage from our 3rd IVF attempt for a second child. We had a 4th IVF attempt in October / November and had been following your advice. We got 2 blasts in Nov but unfortunately had a negative test result. However, we kept positive and continued to follow the healthy eating and found out I was pregnant naturally in January! We were shocked! Especially after 4 years of trying and the failed IVFs. I am now 21 wks pregnant. Thank you for all your help and advice – just wanted to give you an update and let you pass on some hope to other couples in our position”.
Tara G, Meath
“I attended with you for two consultations, referred by my IVF clinic. I recently attended my consultant for the purpose of providing a sperm sample. It is with happiness and gratitude that I am in a position to inform you that there was a huge improvement in the quality of my sample. Specifically,
(a) My count jumped from an average of 20 m to an average of 55 m over 2 tests.
(b) My motility went from an average of 25% to an average of 52%.
(c) My morphology went from 4% to 6%.
This considerable improvement meant that our treatment plan was altered from ICSI to IVF and thankfully we have ended up with a number of fertilised, healthy looking blastocysts through IVF. I just wanted to write this note to firstly, let you know how my tests went and secondly, thank you again for your enormous contribution to helping me take steps to improve my sample. The staff in the Clinic were quite surprised by this improvement.

” C and I just wanted to forward you a quick note on our meetings on fertility issues with you. We are now the very proud parents of an absolutely beautiful baby girl and we are so very grateful to you for your advice and help in improving the conditions for this to happen. Our lives have changed immeasurably and in the very best of ways. Thank you so very much”.
Roy McN, Roscommon
“I’m delighted to let you know that I have had another baby boy who will soon be 1…I still have to pinch myself! Just wanted to say a big massive thank you to you as your help nutritionally but also your overall support and care to us both was just amazing!”
“I wanted to send you a quick mail to let you know that I had a baby girl two weeks ago. I firmly believe the positive steps I took with your nutritional advice helped us in our second round of IVF last May. We were given a low chance of success and the clinic wanted to cancel the cycle due to low egg quantity but we pleaded for it to continue as it was our last attempt with my eggs. Thankfully we dramatically improved the quality of my eggs and were left with one viable embryo which went on to be a successful pregnancy! We are over the moon and thrilled with our little girl. I just wanted to send you an update to let you know and perhaps to give hope to others in a similar position and unsure about whether to try the nutritional approach.”
“Just wanted to let you know that we have a beautiful little boy called Zach. He was born weighing in at 7lb8oz. Everything went amazingly and every part of it was a wonderful experience. We wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for all your advice and support during our difficult journey. We both really believe that it played a crucial role in the success of our fertility and healthy pregnancy!”

“I contacted Glenville Nutrition in May 2011 for help with infertility, severe menstrual bleeding and pain, stomach problems ie heartburn, bloating, IBS (constipation). My first consultation was very thorough and very pleasant. My Nutritionist made me feel very much at ease and assured me that by changing my eating habits and incorporating exercise that I would lose weight and ease the other health issues. I was put on vitamin supplements and given dietary advice. I changed what and when I ate immediately and lost 5lbs in the first week. I never felt hungry and the recipes that I was given are delicious. I’ve been on the supplements and diet now for three months and the change is amazing, over a stone weight loss, heartburn completely gone, period pain is gone and bleeding has diminished greatly, bowels are in great shape also! It’s all down to a healthy diet and exercise and a positive attitude. It’s a true saying ” you are what you eat”. I would strongly recommend Glenville Nutrition to anyone who is looking to make changes to their lifestyle or to address health issues. I can’t praise them enough”.

Digestive Health, IBS, SIBO
“My gut issues began in my teenage years with a diagnosis of a hiatus hernia. Having been prescribed antacids for a number of years I decided to cease taking the medication, with unfortunate consequences. My acid reflux worsened to a point where I couldn’t perform my job properly as a chef. I had always believed diet, lifestyle, and stress had played a part in exacerbating my condition, but the ppi had become a crutch where I felt I could live how I wanted and not feel the effects. How wrong I was.
Still determined to end my long term relationship with antacids, I looked at my eating habits and lifestyle in a serious way. But it wasn’t drastic. Heather guided me through the various recommendations with equal measures of positive encouragement and stern words of warning which I felt I needed! After what I have to say were only minor adjustments to my diet I began to feel the positive effects, most notably the reduction and then disappearance of acid reflux. Heather really showed her knowledge of my condition and unwillingness to stick with these initial adjustments as I was then diagnosed with SIBO, which required a short course of antibiotics and a stricter diet regime.
Going on 8 months now, I can feel the full benefits. I’ve reintroduced everything into my diet without having to resort to antacids once. I know there is no true cure for an illness such as this but I feel a lot more educated, positive, and in tune with my own body going forward now after visiting Glenville Nutrition.”
Keith C, Dublin
“For a number of years, I had lived with the symptoms of IBS; bloating, constipation and diarrhoea. I craved sugary foods too and would often fall asleep after a rich meal. I thought it was a condition to ‘live with’. Since I approached Glenville Nutrition for an assessment, my life has been changed so much for the better. I found out about SIBO (small bacteria overgrowth) and how it affected me. A stricter food plan with supplements for a period of time has helped re-balance my gut bacteria so that those awful symptoms have gone. I know what works for me now. Good meal planning and lots of healthy food has helped reboot my system. I feel so alive and energised. The added bonuses are a healthy BMI, normal cholesterol levels, 20kgs lighter and a reduction to my metabolic age by 20 years+. It has been so worth all the time and effort to create this new healthy lifestyle. Thank you for all your excellent advice and encouragement. Your professionalism and attention to detail has brought me to this transformed new state, a new me”.
Maria R, Dublin.
“I made an appointment for help with some on-going digestive and health issues which I felt were worsening as I got older. I had tried various routes in the past to help but had little success. I was apprehensive before the appointment as I was worried it would be a lecture on all the things I was doing wrong in my diet.My experience couldn’t have been any further from that. Firstly, my Nutritionist was so warm and welcoming, and very down to earth. There was absolutely no judgement on her part. We had an honest and open chat. What amazed me was the way she connected the dots between the issues I had come in for and various other symptoms I had been experiencing which until this point I had no idea were diet related. For the first time, it all seemed to make sense. I began to get excited about the fact that feeling better was within my grasp. She explained everything clearly and answered every question I had. She worked out a plan for me that was simple and fool proof. Within days of starting, my body began to respond. My digestive pain and discomfort was gone. My skin was clearer, and the psoriasis that had been part of my life for almost 20 years began to clear up. Within a couple of weeks it is no exaggeration to say that I felt like I had been given a new lease of life. I felt clear headed and had a level of energy that was new to me. Emotionally I felt calm and balanced. I had expected the physical benefits, but the mental and emotional benefits were unexpected and glorious. My family and friends could all see the changes, and people who hadn’t seen me for some time really noticed the difference. I cannot recommend Glenville Nutrition highly enough. I think it is fair to say that working with them changed my life. Sometimes you don’t even realise how bad you feel until you start to feel better. That is a gift that you can give yourself. Sincerest thanks for all you did for me.”
“I attended Glenville Nutrition with a number of different complaints. My main concern was the intense bloating after big meals which was at it’s best uncomfortable and at it’s worst caused diarrhea, constipation and sometimes vomiting. I had dealt with this my whole life but was not comfortable talking about so had just put up with it. When I met my Nutritionist, I explained these symptoms along with other issues I had like acne, severe PMS, mood swings etc. She was understanding and made me feel very comfortable about discussing issues which I would otherwise feel very embarrassed speaking about. She overhauled my diet and gave me clear guidelines to follow over the next six weeks. She gave me delicious recipes to use and a meal plan to follow. She advised me on the right vitamins and the foods I needed to have more of in my diet. I returned 6 weeks later a new person. I really couldn’t believe the changes to my diet could affect me in such a life-changing way. The bloating, constipation and diarrhea had disappeared within the first week of my new eating plan. The other symptoms I had experienced had also completely been resolved. My skin was clear of acne and the PMS had all but gone. I found that both my body and my mind benefited from these changes. I was happier and less prone to mood swings or getting irritable for no reason. I had far more energy and I was sleeping better than I ever had in my life. As an added bonus, I had lost 7 pounds. Not to sound cliched, but visiting Glenville Nutrition was the best thing I have ever done for myself”.
“I was having problems with my stomach, I had been to see lots of doctors but nothing worked. Glenville Nutrition was a last resort.From the minute I attended the clinic I felt at ease. I thought the whole experience was excellent. I have never felt better. You taught me how to eat again. I thought I had a healthy diet, I was very wrong. My stomach problems have gone, I sleep better, I have so much energy, I will never go back to the way I was before”.

Female hormone and bone health
“I was quite devastated on receiving the result of my Dexa Scan indicating osteoporosis, leading me to visit your clinic. Thank you for being so thorough in ordering the various blood tests and Bone Turnover test. The results of these were a very good barometer of where I was at health wise. It was reassuring to learn that certain deficits were ruled out and it was clear what needed to be worked on. It was so uplifting to get the results of the second Bone Turnover test which showed a remarkable improvement in my bone health. It has been like winning the lottery. It has been a wonderful journey meeting you and I am very grateful for your professionalism, your kindness and for ultimately guiding me back to good health. I appreciate it so much. Thank you!”
Mary B, Dublin
“I had been having irregular periods since I was eighteen. I had been to countless doctors, allergy clinics, gynaecologists and specialists in a desperate effort to rectify the situation. I was tested for everything under the sun, but there was no definitive answer and everyone remained perplexed as they advised me to simply slow down a bit”. My Nutritionist looked at my diet and lifestyle and could immediately pinpoint some things I had been doing, which I had actually believed were beneficial to my health. She gave sound advice on how to change my diet. After following her program which was both realistic and easy to follow considering my hectic schedule, my energy shot up, my skin cleared up, I felt healthier, more energetic and happier. It was actually on the day of my third consultation that my period returned. It’s amazing to have been given both a reason and a solution to my problem and to know that it was something in my control that I could change as long as I was given good concrete advice on what to do. I cannot speak highly enough of my experience. My Nutritionist was also welcoming and warm, which makes discussing such problems so much easier. And as well as my periods returning, I just feel a million times better in every aspect of my health”.

Thyroid and general health
“Suffering from Hashimoto’s Underactive Thyroid, anaemia and low Vitamin D, I was feeling beyond exhausted. Attending Glenville Nutrition was a very important step in helping restore me to good health. There, I received advice, recipes and tips on healthy eating, eating the correct foods and various supplements in supporting my digestive system and getting me back on track. The advice has been invaluable and for this I am truly grateful. Thank you to all at Glenville Nutrition.”
“I was totally happy with the appointment yesterday. I’d like to thank you very much. Very professional and well-prepared Nutritionist, no judgment but really constructive attitude. Gold dust!”
Eliza T, Dublin
“My daughter Eabha had eczema for several years and we had tried everything, every kind of Dr and natural cure from the health shop and the internet. Over the last 6 months we attended Glenville Nutrition three times and our Nutritionist figured out how to help Eabha, by changing her diet and giving her supplements. She is now almost free of eczema. Our Nutritionist also suggested new foods to try, gave us lots of recipes and was available to answer queries by email. She is a very warm and caring person and easy to talk to. She doesn’t just give you a list of things to do, she helps you to figure out how to make it fit into your lifestyle.”
Joan O’R, Killarney
“Thanks for all your help and guidance, after so many years of suffering it has been such a relief to have finally found something that really works”.
Geraldine S, Mullingar
“I found my consultations to be most useful. Over a six-month period, following her advice, I experienced significant improvement in my general health and well being, both physically and mentally. I found my nutritionist to be generous with her time and information giving clear explanations of how things work and the rationale for the programme being recommended. The tests carried out were also very useful and something I could not have availed of elsewhere. Although I would have considered myself fairly aware health and nutrition wise, I learned a considerable amount in this process which I hope will stand to me in the long term. The consultations were a significant investment financially for me but definitely worth it in terms of the return which they provided”.
Sarah F, Kildare
“please pass on my sincere thanks for another very beneficial consultation as well as for all her support and guidance to me. I am feeling so much better now and her help has played a large part in my improved well being.”
Gemma C, Dublin
“I found my Nutritionist to be approachable, knowledgeable and professional. The end result of consultations over several months has been a loss of weight, several inches off my waist and making simple but significant changes to my eating habits that I can easily sustain for my lifetime . I would highly recommend Glenville Nutrition.”
“I found Glenville Nutrition excellent. My nutritionist was very helpful and really listened to what was going on for me. I have always struggled to lose weight due to hormonal problems and endometriosis. Since I started following the food plan I have lost lots of weight and have gained energy and solved my digestion problems, this is something I didn’t think was possible. I found the supplements and recipes excellent. I have been asked by so many friends , relatives and work colleagues what my secret is to losing so much weight! “
“I FINALLY I lost all the extra pounds I was holding for two years, and my digestion improved MASSIVELY!! Nothing compared to when I first came looking for help!! I WILL ALWAYS BE SO THANKFUL FOR THAT, you wouldn’t believe how much good you did for me, I was lost.”
