“I feel much more confident”

I was so confused by all the conflicting advice out there, and didn’t know which way to turn to improve my son’s allergies. Now I feel much more confident in my choices.

“More empowered”

I like to call myself a hippy holistic mum but then always felt bad when I had to give medication to my children. Now I know how the two sides can work together, I no longer feel guilty, and my children are happier.
