recent praise

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for the wealth of information you gave me, and the support. I felt like I was going round and round in circles. From 3 to 8 months old, it literally felt like we were walking through the fires of hell. Zero sleep. His skin just melted off daily. Stress and anxiety was the norm but once I’d made the decision to follow your information, it was like a weight lifted.  Thank you, thank you, thank you! I feel like I can confidently heal this bubba and set him in good stead for the rest of his life now."



“When it comes to allergies and eczema, I believe Maryana is the most experienced person in New Zealand to assist with healing these from the inside out.”



"Maryana is a wealth of knowledge and has a way of empowering her clients. We saw remarkable and rapid results during and after our consults, and I now have two happy, healthy children to show for it! When I first saw her, I was flustered and overwhelmed. She gave fantastic advice, realistic suggestions, and motivated me, encouraging me to trust my gut. It influenced me to feel confident and capable. I have no doubt she played a role when he went from four foods to 40 in only four months and helped me provide the building blocks for happy, healthy kids. I don't feel like the success story could get any better. Thank you again. You have touched the lives of many people, probably more than you'll ever know." 



"Without that confidence and support, we would not have experienced the positive results and change in our children. I can't even begin to explain how amazing it feels to be told by friends, family and even strangers how happy and energetic your child is - and how much she can eat. I can't even compare her with her old self. Thank you thank you thank you".
