These testimonials are from 4 of my amazing clients, women and their kids, who came to me very unwell, with chronic conditions and multiple sensitivities. They all walked away feeling well, happy and grateful (and able to eat a lot more than when they started!).
Testimonial 1 – 5 year old boy with long term loose stools and wind
My 5yo son had always had tummy trouble. Loose stools and wind. We had started food diaries on and off over the years but struggled to work out the culprit.
I was referred to Kate by a friend and we started the journey of fixing my son’s gut. Kate was so knowledgeable and supportive from the start. She put us on a plan to test for intolerances then eliminate the problem foods. The elimination diet was overwhelming at first as we had to exclude about 15 food groups for a couple of months, but Kate was so helpful and guided me through. She helped me with alternatives and actual products to buy at the supermarket to replace the foods we couldn’t eat. We also kept food and stool diaries which Kate would assess, and she prescribed supplements to heal my son’s belly.
We are so happy now that we know what my son is sensitive to. We’ve reintroduced all the foods back in, and we know how much he can tolerate of each! It has been a long few months but it’s such a relief to know what he can and can’t eat now. He can go to school not worrying about having to rush to the toilet.
I can’t even imagine how we would have done this without Kate’s help. She has been an amazing guide and a wealth of knowledge. And always available for a quick text about a food query or swap. She was so understanding about the overwhelm of such a huge elimination of foods and so so supportive, always happy to help. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing her expertise, she has been absolutely amazing, we are so grateful.

Testimonial 2 – sensitivity, migraines, energy, moods
“Kate Gray has helped me to feel well again, to be myself again. I came to her feeling physically, emotionally and mentally exhausted, and sick with migraines up to 4 times a week. I was intolerant to a long list of foods which was constantly growing. My moods were all over the place and I felt like I had ‘leaky brain’ as well as leaky gut! I had seen so many doctors and wasn’t getting any answers as to why I was so sick.
I saw Kate in September and she was able to understand why I was feeling so sick and help me instantly by removing common migraine triggers from my diet. Within a month I knew my main trigger and wasn’t getting any more migraines at all! By January I turned a corner and started to feel like I could tolerate more foods without symptoms developing, and I felt calmer and able to handle stress much better. I took supplements for 3 months to heal my gut and address nutritional deficiencies, and I stuck to my diet fairly closely. Now I feel like I am continually getting better. I’m no longer on any supplements and I have so much more energy. I can exercise again without feeling exhausted after. I can enjoy more and more foods as I keep getting better. I know feel more in tune with my body and I’m able to listen to it and know what it needs.
I am eternally grateful to Kate for helping me, teaching me and guiding me to feel so much better. She has given me back my health and freedom, and I feel like I can continue with less frequent check ups to ensure I continue to maintain my good health.”

Testimonial 4 – severe gut issues (gastritis, SIBO, candida), sensitivities
“With the onset of multiple gut symptoms, gastritis, bloating and gas that left me losing a ton of weight and other symptoms such as painful ‘arthritis’ in my joints and night sweats I headed off to the GP to figure out what was going on. Despite a battery of tests I didn’t seem to be getting any answers from mainstream medicine and out of desperation I visited Kate Gray hoping she might help me at least figure out what I could and couldn’t eat and stop the weight loss. What I found was that Kate wasn’t just able to help me with my weight, but educate me on how to nourish my body so that slowly but surely I was able to nurse myself back to health.
As I was going through all the mainstream testing, Kate guided me through food intolerance testing so we knew which foods were causing the problems and organic acid testing that helped me understand what the issues were that I needed to address. Since then we have systematically been working on SIBO, detoxing the liver and getting rid of candida. Without Kate’s support I doubt I could’ve stuck to the strict protocols, she was great at finding solutions to all my cravings and food needs despite the restrictions I faced. She also researched any questions I had about health information I had found online, she helped me understand what was actually science based and what was science fiction.
Kate has a wonderful manner and caring nature and was extremely pleasant to work with. Not only has she helped me back to health, but I also took my ADHD son to her with a rash around his mouth and constant colds and sickness. She was great with my son and helped me figure out that he has a citric acid intolerance! Removing citric acid from his diet has been life changing for him, he no longer gets sick all the time and is able to focus so much better at school. He ended his year with a Distinction!
We are so grateful to have come across Kate, she is an ‘Angel of Nutrition’ and I would urge anyone who has any health issues to go and have a consultation with her, you will be so glad you did! Thank you Kate.”
