“Francesco is a knowledgeable, enthusiastic and helpful practitioner who passionately believes in the healing power of food. His knowledge of nutritional science is complemented by his practical talent for demonstrating to clients how to prepare simple, delicious and healthy food which is tailored to their particular health concern. I always found Francesco very accessible and willing to help me in any way he could and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to somebody who is seeking a knowledgeable and caring nutritionist”

“I was having very disturbed sleep, violent nightmares and waking with my heart pounding in my chest. Eventually I would drift off to sleep again only to be awoken again with the same symptoms a couple of hours later. I was exhausted during the day.
I went to my Gp and she could find nothing wrong with me. She thought I was suffering from anxiety and taught me some breathing exercises.
I tried the breathing exercises but they didn't help. I felt that I wasn't suffering from anxiety.
This horrible pattern continued for several months during which time I tried herbal remedies to help me sleep but nothing worked. I was exhausted.
One day I went into the health store in Stillorgan Shopping Centre and was lucky enough to be served by Francesco. I told him my symptoms. He asked me what I ate during the day and at what times. He straight away told me that I was leaving too long a gap between breakfast and lunch and that I needed to eat more protein rich food and less high sugar food.
He made some suggestions for dietary changes. My body was creating too much of the stress hormone cortisol and this was waking me at night.
I put his advice into practice straight away and haven't looked back since. I am so grateful to Francesco for his advice. He has changed my life. I am 100% back to normal now. Thank you Francesco”

"I attended Francesco for consultations on how to improve digestive and menstrual symptoms that were having a very disruptive impact on my daily life.
Francesco is a great listener and he asked me questions so that he could get a very well-rounded sense of my lifestyle.
While he understands the science of microbiology expertly, he gave me simple things to do after each session which, when followed, really had a positive impact on my wellbeing.
I can say with confidence that the tips, advice and habits that Francesco gave me will stay with me for life."

“I've had issues with IBS for years and it would generally make me feel quite anxious in public situations. My experience with doctors over the years, trying to fix the problem, always left me disappointed.
Although it eased off over the years, I was still never quite able to deal with it myself.
Francesco helped to get to the root of the problem, and with a change in diet, and supplementation, I'm now able to deal with the problem and no longer worry when I'm out in public.
I highly recommend Francesco to anyone with a similar problem or any other health issues.”
