Alison’s Full Story
Alison from London
I’m Alison. I can’t say enough how much Well Works has helped me over the past few months. I had been going back and forth to the doctor’s for approximately 18 months with a lot of different symptoms, all of which they couldn’t supply an answer to why I was feeling the way I was.
I was feeling more and more unwell with no hope of any diagnosis, so I decided to take a chance and sign up with Well Works. I don’t have a lot of spare income so was skeptical about spending the money I had but decided I needed to do something. I’m so glad I did! Within a few weeks, I had started to feel so much better.
Raewyn and Despina have been amazing from the start – both very warm, friendly and professional, which immediately puts you at ease. Everything – from the in-depth medical and lifestyle questionnaire, consultations, lab analysis, coaching and on-going app-based support – has been invaluable.
I’m just so grateful that I now know what’s wrong because that means I can do something about it. If it means giving up some foods to feel like myself again then I’m happy to do it. It’s been nice to get home from work and not be in tears as I’d be so exhausted from just sitting at work!
I’ve always eaten well though and cooked for myself so I don’t think it’s been as big as a shock to me as someone who lives on takeaways every night. It’s a lot to take in and change in one go, so they’ve helped me concentrate first on nutrition.
My stress is a big thing for me so now that I am feeling better and have more energy, I can do more to tackle that. It’s easy to worry that you’re not doing everything you should be but I’m actually pretty proud of myself. I’m feeling much better – so much more energy and a much clearer head.
I think after 2 years of going back and forth to the doctors and hospital with no answers, when you know you’re really sick is so stressful. I’ve probably given my own body weight in blood but now because of the functional labs, I’ve got something in black and white telling me why I’ve been so sick. Knowing what the problem is means that I can work out a plan of how to start feeling better.
I can’t say enough how grateful I am to Despina and Raewyn, as without them I really worry about what would have happened to me. It really has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!
