“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”.
“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 Ciara and all at Glenville Nutrition.”
“I visited Glenville Nutritionist Linda Murray recently to seek help in putting together a sustainable healthy eating programme that included a weight loss plan but was primarily aimed at reducing my cholesterol level. I’m happy to say that three month later my cholesterol is down from 6.7 to 4.8 and that the healthy eating programme continues as a natural part of my daily diet.”
“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.”
“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!”

“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 with Heather, I explained these symptoms along with other issues I had like acne, severe PMS, mood swings etc. Heather 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 to pick up at the health store 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”.
“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!”

“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”.

“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”.

“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.

“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.”

“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”.

” 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 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”.
M McClean, Dublin
“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”.
