Emma is such a knowledgeable practitioner who breaks down information in a way I can really understand and feel motivated to integrate. Her warm, calm, yet really professional nature lets you know your health is in safe hands.
I have seen Emma for help around my thyroid health and gut issues. She makes scientific things so easy to understand. I've now really been able to take control of my own health through her coaching. She's amazing!
I've had an incredible experience with Paloma Velasquez at House of Health. She has helped me overcome gut issues, allergies and hormonal problems that other doctors did not have a solution for. She is very thorough and professional, and has accomodated treating me via video calls (I am based in Australia). I would highly recommend!
Emma is amazing! She has been helping me with some long term issues and has been a huge help, wealth of knowledge and amazing at providing a big picture view when I have been stuck in the trenches. She has worked incredibly hard at drilling down to find solutions and I can wholeheartedly recommend her for anyone wanting to get on top of their health issues.
House of Health has been awesome. I suffer migraines and I have been supported by Verity with a naturopath plan. I am still on my journey but after one month I have seen improvements in my energy and ability to focus at work. Verity is amazing to work with! She is super calm, patient and genuine. It is evident she really cares about her clients. I highly recommend her and House of Health in general :)
I went to Sharon at House of Health several years ago having been diagnosed with Crohns by the hospital. I no longer have a Chrohns diagnosis. I believe that is due to Sharon's careful, very informed care and guidance at House of Health.
I decided to try with natural medicine years ago when my daughter was diagnosed with asthma, and they wanted to medicate her with inhalers. I was fortunate to find Paloma Velasquez, and thanks to the customized formulas she did for my daughter, the herbs, and some dietary changes, my daughter has been asthma-free for over 2 years. Incredibly grateful to her dedication and highly recommended for her professionalism.
Dropped me as a client because I was going to oz short term and couldn't afford supplements for few months .But was happy to take thousands for expensive tests and in result appointment pretty much read results from paper and isn't explain how related to my main issues
Praise they say is an appreciation for more. If I fail to accept you it would show how ungrateful I am. I could not be less grateful to the person God has used to bless me and my family in general.

I took a family member to see Sharon as they had an ongoing stomach problem. The GP had run tests and prescribed various pills but they didn't make any difference.As soon as Sharon saw the same test results, she immediately identified the probable issue and recommended a new food regime.Over a six-week period, the person dropped 15 kgs, the pain went away and, now looks and feels vastly different.They see the new food options as a long-term lifestyle change.I urge anyone who has a stomach issue to go to see Sharon at House of Health.
