"Lindy cured me of chronic acid reflux, something that many specialists around Melbourne had been unable to accomplish during the 5 years of appointments, procedures and debilitating pain that I experienced. Doctor after doctor concluded tests with 'there is nothing showing, you are overly sensitive and you should keep taking the Nexium'. One doctor went as far as to tell me to return in 5 years for a bone density test to make sure there are no long term effects from taking this medication, as the dosages were ever increasing to mask the pain.
The reason why I was seeking out a resolution was because at the age of 25, I personally did not want to be taking medication for the rest of my life, particularly as a woman who wants to become pregnant one day.
After being referred to Lindy, it took only three sessions over a two month period to pin point and tweak the herbs and foods required to rebuild and support my digestive system. Within this period, the reflux symptoms subsided and eventually ceased (unless I have a few too many glasses of red wine!). Just as importantly I gained a life long understanding of foods that are easy to digest and foods that support my energy throughout the day. Lindy not only solved the unsolvable but educated me in a way where I am confident that I can care for my body in the long term."
"Thank you for the check- up, diagnosis and health program that you gave me in April 2011. The results have been incredible and rapid! In just four months I have gone from 103kg to 90kg and more importantly, my insulin levels have been halved and my long term blood sugar levels have dramatically improved.
Of course I have kept to the changes in diet that you prescribed, along with the supplementation and a regular exercise regime of 30 minutes three times per week. But these changes have been easy and I am loving the renewed energy and sense of well- being that they provide. Once again many thanks and I will continue with the good approach to eating and living that you promote."
"I took my son Joel (4 years) to see Lindy as I was determined to improve his health and well being naturally as opposed to taking him down the "local GP" route that in the past had proven hopeless. Joel experienced occasional bouts of constipation and stomach pains after eating, dark circles under his eyes, hyperactivity and over emotional outbursts and frustration followed by exhaustion. His naturally large tonsils seemed to be always inflamed and disrupting his sleep with frequent snoring and occasionally vomiting and he also had very dry skin.
I have always had a strong interest in natural health and nutrition and was very aware of the role nutrients play in the diet and its effect on the body especially children so I was always making sure he ate a well balanced diet and did my best to allow a good variety of foods with the odd treat thrown in. I was perplexed as to why Joel was not healthier than he was.
I took Joel to see Lindy and she changed our lives... not only is she a wealth of knowledge in the field of natural health but she is particularly brilliant with children's health. It has been over a month since we saw Lindy and Joel is a changed boy. With some diet tweaking (due to pinpointing some food intolerances) and the addition of some vitamins, minerals and herbal supplements, Joel's temperament seems a lot more balanced and calmer. His tonsils are markedly less raw and swollen, he no longer snores at night and his skin is silky smooth! No more dark circles under his eyes and he has a real glow to him. Lindy had a strong impact on Joel as he takes her 'special mixture' (once a day) and he has not missed a day of fish oils and probiotic because 'Lindy said it would make him better'. Changing his diet was also easy as 'Lindy told him too'. So thank you Lindy we are eternally grateful for your help!"
"I am 32 years old and after years of suffering from digestive problems I was fed up and had given up on traditional medicine. I had seen Specialists and had numerous tests done but really I didn’t have any answers as to why this was happening to me. I was in serious pain daily, making life difficult to the point that it was making me feel really down. One day I was having a Personal Training session at the gym and my trainer who also suffers from similar problems suggested I go and see Lindy. She had been a client of Lindy’s and believed Lindy had really helped her so I figured what have I got to lose. I went home and made my first appointment straight away. After this appointment I felt like I had direction and a plan of how I was going to get this under control. Lindy put me on the detox diet and encouraged me to get a few different tests done that have given me the answers I have been looking for, for many years. I was so impressed with Lindy and how much she genuinely cared about getting things right for me. After one month on the diet I have had no pain or any of the other problems I was having. I am so pleased that I made the decision to go in this direction and thankful for all that Lindy has done for me. I strongly recommend to anyone with unresolved health issues to see a Naturopath. Traditional Doctors are very quick to tell you what not to do but they don’t offer alternatives. I had asked my Specialist and my GP about getting the same tests that I had done through Lindy but neither of them would support my requests. I feel now I have the confidence and the knowledge to lead a far happier life than what I had been living and I won’t ever be going back to the way I was."
"I was diagnosed by my doctor as having a ‘peptic episode’, and although all my scans were clear I had ongoing stomach aches. I completed a course of medication to decrease the production of stomach acid and was left with extremely poor digestion, excessive bloating after eating and skin rash on my face…yuck! And I was still getting the occasional mild stomach ache.
Lindy put me on a very straightforward plan of herbal and digestive supplements, and encouraged me to make some simple changes to my food choices. Almost immediately the bloating after meals subsided, the stomach aches have now stopped and I am rash free.
What I really liked about Lindy was that she developed a plan that I could make work in my daily life. Simple, and obviously extremely effective. I am so happy with the results and cannot recommend Lindy highly enough. Thank-you!"
"Lindy Cook should receive an award for services to me!! She fixed me! Problems that had been destroying me for years were resolved with her guidance.
I have suffered from hormonal complications after the onset of Hypothyroidism more than ten years ago. Each month my PMT was debilitating and not only making me quite depressed for 3 or so days but it was having a really negative impact on my personal relationships. I also struggled with my weight (sitting about 10kgs over my healthy spot) and regardless of how fit I was I couldn't lose the kilos.
I had tried to resolve the two main problems (PMT and weight) with the assistance of medical professionals. But I got absolutely nowhere. I was at a loss as to how to overcome these issues till I made an appointment with Lindy Cook.
Lindy did an in depth analysis of my life - starting with my nutritional habits and working through all the health challenges I had. Then she proceeded to educate me. In the first ten days of following her guidelines and taking the Metagenic tablets she recommended I lost 3 kilos, started sleeping through the night and had a miraculous experience! I got my period and the psycho PMT fuelled b!tch was completely missing in action! My long suffering partner and I were nothing short of astounded in the complete absence of PMT!
I have recommended Lindy to a number of people and cannot praise her enough! Regardless of whether or not you have health issues I'd suggest you go get a Lindy check up! But if you do have health concerns I can't encourage you enough to get an assessment by her - she will not disappoint.
With tremendous appreciation"
"In 7 weeks I have lost exactly 10 kilos and I feel amazing! I have no aches or pains like I use to, no bloating in my stomach or indigestion which I experienced every day and I have stopped my two packet a day addiction of Haighs milk chocolate and many other processed food addictions. I really cannot believe how the weight is just falling off me and all I have done is follow Lindy’s advice and have a high protein and low carb meal plan. I don’t use the word ‘diet’ as it isn’t and diets do not work! It is my new healthy lifestyle and it is working. Yes I still go out to dinner on a regular basis but I make better choices and plan better with meals that I eat during the day. So that if I do want to have extra carbs for dinner I can. I recently went out for dinner four times during the week and I still lost 1 kilo.
Are there times that I feel like I could eat processed foods? Of course, I would be lying if I didn’t. But I have more control now and the voice in my head is saying that the feeling of being in a better head space, feeling healthier and slimmer tastes so much better than eating a bag of chips, hot pies etc. where that taste sensation only lasts a few seconds. Feeling good about yourself is ongoing.
I am constantly searching for new recipes and trialling them. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring but you do have to make the effort.
As for exercise I have gone from doing nothing as I was just too tired, to now being able to go for walks with my beautiful dogs Cooper and Lucy, riding the exercise bike each night and I have started back at pilates.
I will continue my path to eating healthy and achieving my goals. I am well on the way. I truly didn’t believe it would work or I could do it. But I proved myself wrong. The choice of eating healthier for me has worked and I am reaping the rewards.
Thank you Lindy for your advice, encouragement and belief in me."
"Lindy is an inspirational health professional. After struggling with asthma and dealing with the associated weight gain due to medication, I was referred to Lindy. She recommended a complete change in diet that has seen amazing results - no asthma and significant weight loss. And... I no longer have to take the asthma medication. Our health is so important and working in partnership with such a caring, knowledgeable person has turned things around for me. I cannot speak highly enough of her."
