"I have been seeing Rike for a few months initially to help with persistent fungal infections and low energy. After the birth of my second baby, I was rundown and low in energy and my general health was poor. My health has improved remarkably and I know it's because I am eating better foods that support my energy needs and have identified the foods that were aggravating my condition.
I find Rike to be professional and I have confidence that she is giving me the right information. I have been re-educated in my eating habits and it's serving me well now."
"I have been seeing Rike for Naturopathic and Nutritional advice for the last 3 years. She has helped me with a number of health issues including a low immune system, fungal infections, liver detoxification and nutritional deficiencies. Within the last few years my health and diet have constantly improved and I have become more aware of my body’s needs.
Before seeing Rike I was frustrated knowing that my health was rapidly deteriorating while the doctors advise and medicines were ineffective. With my parotid tumour growing and no relief from other health issues I had no confidence in consenting to the removal of the tumour surgically. Rike conducted thorough health tests, professionally diagnosed my conditions and prescribed excellent advise and remedies. Very soon my health showed improvement and with perseverance I regained good health and a strong immune system, which gave me courage to face the surgical team.
With Rike’s support, I recently had the operation from which I recovered from very quickly to the amazement of doctors and friends alike. I am very happy with the results.
Thank you Rike,
I can now continue with your advise on preventative medicine to keep my good health."
“Rike has been working with myself and my children now for about 12 months. I always find Rike to be very helpful, understanding, sympathetic and importantly for us flexible. The other attribute I appreciate about Rike is her dedication, if she is unsure she will find out, she will follow up and is also happy to answer quick questions or concerns which has been invaluable to me.”
"I had been suffering from sickness for about 2 years and had been back and forth to the doctor for all sorts of medications which were clearly not working. Six months before being recommended to see Rike I started getting more symptoms ranging from stomach aches, headaches and elevated heart rate. By this time I was so frustrated I would find myself crying on the really bad days. After going to see Rike I found out I had several food intolerances and within 6 months of cutting these foods out I felt like a huge weight had been lifted and I had a new surge of energy. I have since recommended many friends to try Rike’s expertise for similar symptoms. I have also found Rike great outside appointments. When I had questions I would just send an email and got great advice from that as well. So in short Rike has changed my life."
"I had been having migraines for close to 2 years and they were becoming more frequent (1-2 per week) and I more miserable. Unfortunately my doctor only placed me on medication to take when I got them, but I knew there were causes that needed to be addressed. So I went to see Rike after a recommendation from a friend, which was indeed an answer to prayer. Within 6 weeks the migraines were gone and I have now been migraine free for 3 months! Rike looked at my diet, tested me and recommended supplements and answered my many questions.As I continue in my treatment I also appreciate Rike's availability by email and phone of any follow-up queries I have. I would definetly recommend Naturopathic treatment to anyone and am very happy with Rike's service and care."
"My 7 year old son, I have also taken for Naturopathic care under Rike. He has Aspergers Syndrome and I had been researching for some time how dietary changes could assist him. I had already noticed how colours and preservatives adversely affected his behaviour - anger, irritability, constant disagreeing and meltdowns, were some of his reactions to these foods. I was also beginning to wonder about gluten and dairy. Rike was wonderful in helping us to slowly address these diet changes and explained the reasons why which encouraged us to keep going to see the benefits. She had Sebastian tested for gluten and dairy intolerance and now we have a plan in place which is invaluable. As we continue on his supplements and dietary changes, for 3 months now, my husband and I have noticed how calm, peaceful, co-operative he is becoming. We are very thankful for his treatment and appreciative of Naturopatic care under Rike."
"I’m Tracy, the mother of a 7yr old boy Raaidyn who is currently in the process of being assessed for Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADD, I have my hands full with the non-stop movement and attention problems especially since I am a homeschooler. Raaidyn is an extremely picky eater and I am very health conscious and stress with what food and drinks goes into his mouth. With the help of Rike we discovered Raaidyn was acidic and had a Candida infection. We have gone gluten and dairy free and are using herbal/nutritional supplements and life is almost pleasant. Tantrums and screaming, the selective hearing/deafness is now a rare occurrence. The whole family is calmer and saner. Thanks heaps Rike."
"Rike has helped to educate me as to what my body needs to improve my health and as a result has improved my general attitude and increased my energy levels! I have also managed to get rid of my hay fever!! Sneeze free!!"
"I went to see Rike during a time when my brother had just suffered a stroke. I was very concerned about him and was looking for help. I realised I was highly stressed and also needed help. After a comprehensive consultation and testing my brother for deficiencies, Rike worked out a health programme which made him recover from his stroke much quicker and he was able to go back to his own home after living with me for some time. I was very glad to be able to talk to Rike that day as I wasn't coping too good. And the few simple things that were explained and adjusted to make my health take a turn for the better made my life much more fun and made it so much easier to handle the strain of care that I had to show my brother, and the energy I needed to get things done with ease instead of having to push myself to exhaustion."
"For two years I had been feeling nauseous most days and constantly had a sore stomach, fatigue and depression. After visiting the doctor several times, I still didn't feel any improvements and the drugs the doctor had prescribed were making my skin peel off! So I visited Rike, who did many tests which revealed several food intolerances and nutrient deficiencies. After just a few weeks of following her recommendations, I feel energetic, my depression is gone and I don't feel sick. Thank goodness for Rike."
"Rike is an excellent naturopath, she has helped me identify what is lacking in my diet to help get through the day without feeling tired. I recommend everyone should at least have one consultation check up with Rike."
"Rike really surprised me. I have always been wary of natural therapy practitioners, but I found Rike not only to be extremely professional, but also 100% right! I wish I had seen her years ago as she correctly identified in minutes some things that took years and many, many doctors visits to work out. I highly recommend Rike to any person who has a concern that they are not feeling as well as they should be."
"My 7 year old son and myself went to see Rike...what a delightful, professional, knowledgeable practitioner who offered many natural solutions...I would have no hesitation to recommend her to my friends and family".
