Nathaniel’s mom said: “Being diagnosed with multiple food allergies during the terrible-twos was daunting. Cecile explained in detail so we could easily understand which foods to give him. Her nutritional advice was clear and practical. My son is now growing and eating much better.”

“Ek het soveel vrae gehad oor watter vaste kos om vir my baba te gee. Na Cecile se insiggewende praatjie, was ek baie rustiger en het ek met meer gemak vaste kossies kon gee. Ek beveel Cecile vir alle ma’s met graagte aan; veral dié wat angstig daaroor voel om kos vir hulle babas te begin gee.”
Smith-family, Moreleta Park

“We are very impressed with Cecile who showed empathy towards us when we brought our teenage daughter for weight management. Her passion for a healthy lifestyle encouraged our whole family to sit together for meals, eat more fresh food and less take-aways. Now we try to exercise most days of the week. Thank you, Cecile for making our lives easier, we can already see the results!”

“Die DNA toetse se uitslae het vir my ‘n nuwe wêreld oopgemaak. Ons het begin reg eet en kossoorte uitgeskakel. Ons het daarby gebaat om op ‘n lae koolhidraat dieet te volg, suikerinname te verlaag en meer gereeld te oefen. Ons het ‘n lys van aanvullings ontvang, wat ons nou gereeld drink. Ek probeer om beter keuses te maak wanneer ek aankope doen, lees kosetikette beter en sorg dat my gesin ‘n gesonder lewenswyse volg. Ek het reeds 5 kilos afgeskud en my man al 4kg. Ek dink dit is een van die beste dinge wat met ons kon gebeur het. Dit maak mens bewus van aspekte waaraan jy kan werk om toe te sien dat jy ‘n gesonder leweswyse volg. Ek is baie dankbaar teenoor Cecile wat die DNA toetse baie professioneel ontleed het en ons attent gemaak het op beter lewestylkeuses.”
