"To give you some background, I’m 35, 5ft 8, live a pretty healthy lifestyle and have always been fit and active … and thankfully naturally slim. Then about 5 years ago something changed! My body started doing things it never used to. I developed adult acne, I was permanently bloated and lethargic (tired having only just woken up) and my weight started to creep up. People including myself put it down to the curse of turning 30 … ‘you just don’t metabolise the way you did when you were younger’ The symptoms along with the frustration were making me feel depressed and I was truly stuck in my own rut. It didn’t matter what I ate, if I exercised or not my weight hovered about 1.5-2 stone above ‘my normal’. I decided to take action and thankfully found Tanya! After just 1 hour (the original consultation) I had a potential explanation, a direction and a plan … maybe it wasn’t just something I had no control over. I went for some tests and not surprisingly the results were exactly as Tanya had predicted. I was already following the dietary plan; all I had to do was stick to it. This wasn’t hard as the food changes were not drastic; I didn’t end up on an unaffordable diet of kale, hungry all the time. It’s been about 5 years since I weighed myself and saw a 9 at the beginning but in just 3 months since that first consultation I've lost over a stone and basically done it by diet alone as exercise has been sparse due to illness/injury/Christmas. I’ve learnt so many things along this short journey but the most poignant for me is ‘just because food is deemed healthy doesn’t mean it will be healthy for you’

Tanya is without question an expert in her field; knowledgeable, passionate, dedicated, warm and kind … but to me, very simply put she is a legend and I can’t thank or recommend her enough."

"Tanya is one of a kind. I have seen a lot of doctors and nutritionists in my time, and never have I had such an immediate turn around and healing of my body after just one appointment. She is so thorough in all that she does, and strives to understand the depth and complexity of each case. She is a leader in the field and I can’t recommend her enough. Her knowledge is extraordinary.

On top of her professional gift, she is also a genuinely lovely and caring person. I immediately felt comfortable around her and knew that she was going to do her absolute best to get me well - which she did!

You walk away after one appointment with a game plan, a huge pack of incredible resources from gut healing recipes, to info about your specific condition, and a wealth of knowledge about the body and it’s functions. Tanya is a blessing and it’s the best investment you can make for you long term health and well-being."

"Following a clinical diagnosis of a chronic auto immune condition I engaged the services of Tanya in an attempt to investigate alternative options to a lifetime of medication designed to suppress symptoms which filled me with horror at the thought that this may be what my future looked like. Her guidance, support and patience have been educational and inspiring even at times when I was in a state of despair that the weight loss which was a key deliverable was so slow despite that my general health was clearly improving each week that I followed the plan that she had developed and tailored to meet my individual needs.

Tanya supported me through the highs and lows continuing to investigate and recommend alternative options when we hit 'road blocks'  which made me feel that we were on the journey together. After a few short months of working with Tanya I have been discharged from the care of my consultant as the improvements in my general health and well being in the key markers for the auto immune condition have exceeded what was expected.

Tanya is clearly a very knowledgeable and dedicated professional who is committed to supporting individuals like myself who believe there are alternatives to a lifetime of medication to treat chronic conditions. The NHS should be much more open and embracing of this approach as I am sure patients and stakeholders would benefit if adopted as a general practice."

"I would just like to let you know that I have now lost 40kg! It has taken just over 6 months using the nutritonal diet you provided. I dropped 8 trouser sizes during this period and very pleased how well I feel. I intend to continue with the diet as I really enjoy the food types. It is completley different to my previous food intake. Thank you so much for all your support over the months. I am still loosing weight and my wife says I am new man."

"Thank you so, so much again for all your help and guidance, I am stunned by your knowledge level and it definitely inspires me to crack on with my functional medicine training some day!"

"I've been meaning to write to you for some time to say thank you so much for helping my Dad with his diet and your nutritional support. He's doing really well and his appointment with you was such a positive experience for him. It's amazing the NHS didn't offer any advice although the physical rehab has been great for him and that along with the information he took home from you has made an incredible difference."
- Louise, June 2013

"Over the years I have been to countless therapists with my migraines, fatigue and IBS - all to no avail. Then, at last, I was fortunate enough to find Tanya who was able to rapidly diagnose the root cause of my problem. Her knowledge is absolutely vast and only matched by the enormous passion she has for her subject and for helping people. In Tanya's expert hands, my health has been completely turned around, and I have learnt so much along the way. I cannot recommend her highly enough."
- Rosie of Bristol. June 2013

"With long working days and little time to think about what I was eating, food had to be quick and easy. Since my first consultation with Tanya my diet has totally changed. Now I know what to buy, where to buy it and how to create delicious nutritious food in an instant."
- Claire of Eastbourne. May 2013

"After being diagnosed with high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes I was put on “Statins”. Unfortunately I encountered very bad side effects when I took them so I started looking around for alternative options to treat my conditions.

Luckily for me just over a year ago I came across Tanya Borowski at Nutritional Values. After a full consultation Tanya advised me of a whole new nutrition and exercise programme. The programme was not one of your normal dieting and suffering or drinking powder for lunch. As long as I made sure I stuck to the nutrition programme Tanya set for me I was able to eat more or less anything.

I also continued to see Tanya on a regular basis to check my progress and tweak my programme as I made advances.. Today I have had my latest 6 monthly check up with my doctor and he has been impressed with my progress. I know that I could not have done this without Tanya’s guidance and support. I would recommend this drug free approach – and Tanya’s individualised programmes - to anyone."
- Janet of Lewes, East Sussex. Jan 2013

"Tanya is an exceptional nutritional therapist. After I had my second child I was suffering from a number of health issues including chronic fatigue and hormone imbalances. I was tired of other therapists' and indeed specialists' constant guess work in diagnosing the root cause and treatment. I was at my wits end and even traveled to America to see renowned "health gurus" with limited success. When I came to see Tanya I instantly felt I was in very capable hands. Her knowledge is vast and she is always one step ahead, keeping up to date with current health and treatment developments. She quickly diagnosed and has begun to successfully treat a chronic bacterial infection and co infections as the root cause of my long term illness as well as supporting and rebuilding my immune system. Her practical and test based approach combined with her deep intuition is very powerful. I immediately began to feel better after a few days of being on her treatment protocol. I can now look forward to full recovery and living my life to the full again. It seems that the most genuine and most gifted therapist was on my doorstep all a long!"
- Lisa O'Connor, Gun Hill, East Sussex

"I have found Tanya to be extremely knowlegable about nutrition and functions of the body. She has really helped me to feel well again. I really trust her advice,my life has been turned around since meeting tanya, and i would highly recommend her."
- Donna Tether, Seaford, Sussex

"I came to see Tanya with a few dietary and hormonal issues that I was unsure how to work through. After seeing the doctor numerous times and not getting anywhere, Tanya was a refreshing change, easy to talk to, with ideas about what was going on that seemed to make lots of sense. In particularly regarding diet and how it all links in to everything else going on in the body. I made a few dietary adjustments and started on some supplements, I felt healthier and had more energy after quite a short time and after about six weeks my period returned after about a year without. I would fully recommend seeing Tanya."
-Hannah, Brighton

"Tanya has performed a complete miracle! I first took Ben to see her a couple of months ago because he had had digestive issues since his premature birth. He clearly had problems digesting and assimilating foods and as a result he has always been small and was very lethargic. I had seen several experts during his short life, including another nutritionist, but none had resolved his issues. Tanya was different from this outset, with her clear dedication to getting to the bottom of the problem, not just treating the symptoms.

Using a range of diagnostic tests, which were invaluable, Tanya was able to accurately pin point the problem and provide us a tailored plan to address it. What seemed daunting at first was made achievable by her realistic and practical advice. She was always available to discuss any concerns I had and was full of great suggestions to help implement the plan. Just two months on and Ben is a child transformed. Previously tired and irritable, he is full of vitality and bursting with life. The other major transformation for which I was not prepared is how sunny and easy going he now is. It is a joy to see him so lively and happy. This has been an enormous gift for us all. Thank you so much."
-Ben, aged 4 ½ - (Mother)
