You all did such an amazing job, from the beautiful session on the beach to start the day, to the motivational talks and information, gorgeous healthy food and shakes and more. My daughter and I shared a magical day with you all and left with a refreshed vision to nurture and nourish ourselves with focus on nutrition, positive mindset and exercise. Totally inspired to be more, have more and achieve more out of LIFE!! Thank you again".

"Your presentation was mind cracking, energetic, incredibly informative, totally engaging, motivational and hilarious as you took us on a colourful journey about the food stuffs we consume and the body parts that have to deal with it. You made everyone feel totally relaxed and your message was a huge wakeup call that everyone out there needs to hear".
"He changed because it makes sense“
My husband came home from work a week or so ago, and told me he had heard you speaking on the Gary Shannon Programme. He said he was most impressed by what you said. Anyway, my husband and I both came to hear you last Monday. He said he would go, but was not going to change his lifestyle’. Well since hearing you, he has been non stop writing down recipes and speaking of the shopping we must do. He has changed because it makes sense.
"A breath of fresh air"
I just needed to email you and let you know how fantastic your presentation was on Monday at Work (H.M.A.S Stirling) you were a breath of fresh air and delightfully entertaining. I can’t wait to see Fridays Presentation.

“Antiageing learning experience“
Over the past 30 years, I have heard many speakers… This Seminar is a true health enhancing, anti ageing learning experience. Dr Zdena Moore M.D.
”I have lost 9kg“
All I can say is WOW!!!! Thank you for being so sensibly normal about diet/lifestyle. The first seminar I was attending to support my wife. Here we go another person telling people about some fad diet. Well, I was very wrong. Let me tell you a little bit about me. I am 49 years old 6ft tall with high blood pressure. I have a very physical job and am very active. I was one of those people who could eat almost anything and not gain weight, but that has changed in the last 8 or so years. So I was watching what I ate but my weight was slowly going up not drastically but it was bothering me and I was losing my strength. I was looking around at other 40 something guys with massive bellies and thinking I don’t want to look like that.
I came home from your seminar, my wife and I went through the pantry and threw stuff in the bin. We made the changes. I have lost 9kg I have more energy, am stronger and I feel fantastic. Thank you, keep up the great work.
”The best $20 worth“
Thank you for a most entertaining 3 hrs – the best $20 worth I’ve ever had!! Your humorous, down to earth and engaging manner made me rethink my eating, drinking, cleaning (both external and internal!) habits and reinforced my belief in becoming more vigilant with buying products instead of just accepting that all the choices we have on the shelves in supermarkets are safe. Thank you for enlightening us about it.
”Gift of Life“
I’d like to thank you personally for the fantastic presentation on POWERFUL NUTRITION at our school last week. In my sixteen years of teaching, of all the Mothers day presents, Fathers day gifts, Christmas goodies, portfolios etc, that I have given to the parents, I have never received so many thank yous from the parents. Certainly changing attitudes in young children begins with the parents. I can already see changes being made in the children’s lunch boxes. I think your presentation should be renamed to the “Gift of Life”. Anyone who is prepared to make important changes based on realistic and easy to understand information will be given that an extended happier and healthier life.

“Just feeling fantastic“
I would like to tell you how my daughter is now. She had been diagnosed with Clinical Depression prior to attending the seminar. She was talking suicide and constantly crying all the time. At work, she would just start crying and have to take the rest of the day off. She was taking far too much time off for depression. She could not cope very well with everyday issues.
She had the attitude that nothing was going to help her, as every time she went to the doctor for help they would up her medication which would then make her a zombie and more depressed. (She is 29) When we came into your Seminar, she had the bottom lip out, arms folded. After 10 min’s into you talking she was taking notes.
To cut a long story short, she has made some amazing changes. She has suffered one only crying bout at work. Vanessa now says she cannot remember the last time she felt this good, she is not as tired, (she always wanted to sleep) she goes to the gym and is just feeling fantastic. I have not seen her this good for a long time also. So if this story can help anyone with depression only to realize that NUTRITION has such an important part to play in our well being. Maybe one day she can be medication free. You talk so everyone can understand it the simple way. Thanks
”Real wake up call“
Firstly, I wanted to thank you for your presentation last week. I got an enormous amount of benefit out of it. As a qualified personal trainer (not my day job) I like to think that I know and do the right things, but last week was a real wake up call to action. As a result of your presentation, I have not touched processed food since and my wife, our unborn child and I are now in the process of moving to organic foods.

“Talent for keeping people tuned in“
I attended your nutrition seminar and would like to let you know (I’m sure you already know) that you have such a talent for keeping people tuned in and interested with the way you speak, the tone of your voice and humour that goes with it. Thanks so much Helen. Keep up the great work.
Thanks. Usually, it is very hard to keep so many people interested for any amount of time, however, because of your passion and the way in which you present in easy to understand terms, made it a no-doze experience. I thoroughly enjoyed your seminar and l learnt lots. Your passion shines through and your presentation was excellent.
”I was blown away“
My 2 Primary age children attended your school sessions and I attended your seminar with the teachers and parents. Although consciously aware, I was blown away by the home truths you confirmed to us all in attendance. Whilst being amazed, feeling a bit (a lot) guilty and blatantly educated, I embraced your wisdom and emotion and though very serious, your humour. My children, also astonished though enthusiastic, are willing to make big changes in our daily habitual motions to continue living and sharing more happy healthy happy lives. I was generally a very health conscious person, till somewhere in the last few years, convenience and haste meant junk became more frequent in our lifestyle, cupboard and fridge…..guilt….. and I guess, we began slowly killing ourselves thinking the other kids have these things but my kids don’t and all that jazz.
Having attended your incredible slap-in-the-face awakening, I really wish my partner could have joined me yesterday to fully understand what the kids and I do. He is hearing us yet your presentation was so powerful and direct I don’t think his eyes, ears and mind, see what we did. FANTASTIC!!!!!!
I believe in so much of what you levered out to those who were willing to listen and you have the ability to catch the attention of even those who were not. Truly an amazing experience and I thank you for the opportunity to embrace the reality of the world we live in and your pursuit in changing bad habits of ultimately a sad painful life to death, into an excitable healthy happy bouncy sharing existence……of course that’s what we want!!!!! Hell yeah!!!
“8Kg without dieting“
Just wanted to let you know that one of my new patients went to your talk and it changed her life….she has changed her eating habits radically. She is no longer constipated and has lost 8Kg without dieting.
“I laughed the whole way through“
A huge THANK YOU for the FANTASTIC presentation last night!! I really, really found it absolutely eye-opening as well as extremely empowering. I am so glad that we have people like you who are leading this food revolution! I thought you were extremely entertaining and my friend and I laughed the whole way through.
“It could save your life.”
“Helen’s seminar has some powerful information which at least could improve your health, vitality and energy levels, and at best “save your life”. Better still Helen presents the information in a unique and compelling way with plenty of humour, so that her message will stay with you for your long, long life. Simply if you are not fully aware of the impact that food has on your body, then this seminar is a must attend – it could save your life.
David Action Coaching.
I am 100% pleased I attended your seminar. What I found particularly useful was the explanation behind why and what we should eat. It was information I already knew but your graphic presentation made it hit home for me. I know what foods make me feel good and feel bad. However, I still make bad choices, and I eat dead food with no consideration of the consequences. There seems to be a disconnect between my brain and body…. My brain knows it’s all bad but my body goes for it. However, your graphic explanation of food entering your mouth and then what happens from there was ideal. You have managed to take me to the next level, where I am now putting my knowledge into practice rather than just storing it on the shelf at the back of my mind.
In a nutshell, your presentation was simple but very effective. I dragged my boyfriend along and he was pleased he went. He too is making the right choices and taking more care. It’s great! Men don’t seem to have the same concern for what they consume.
“You had everyone laughing“
Thank you so much for being the guest speaker at our PD-Day, as always you had everyone laughing but at the same time you got us all thinking and I trust that we all change our way of thinking about what we are putting into our bodies. Even if we all change just a little I feel that your work has been done. For myself, I have started drinking more water and can already feel the benefits.Keep up the great work you do Helen and I look forward to hearing you again.
Thank you for your fantastic presentation. I am still receiving great feedback.
These are some of the comments from the evaluation forms
"I needed this jolt to help me get serious about my health! Helen is an excellent speaker with passion and humour to temper the scary bits. I wish all my family and friends could hear her speak and know this valuable info on health".
"It was wonderful, everyone should hear this".
"Excellent presentation. Very relevant and informative. It will change my life".
"Thank you for inspiring me to again practice what I already know and to make a more concerted effort to help my autistic child eat a healthier diet".
"Very funny! Would definitely come again".
"In 2.5 hours you have shown what has taken 40 years to learn. As a teacher I feel it would be invaluable for parents, teachers, kids to listen, be inspired and most of all make changes to their lives.

”I just loved your seminar“
I attended your seminar in Sydney. Firstly, I just LOVED your seminar, it came at a great time for me in my journey and I have already made quite a few welcome changes. I am now very excited about the future as I am starting to feel fit and healthy again. It’s quite amazing, I have lost another couple of kilos since just making simple changes and hope I will continue to do so. Anyway, thanks again, I have raved about your seminar to everyone and look forward to your next one in Sydney. Thanks for your time and passion, it has really made a huge impact on our family already!!
Thank you again for your incredible presentation at our conference. As I travel around the State talking to members they still cant stop talking about “The poo lady”. You certainly left a lasting impression. Excellent work.

”No nonsense approach“
Look I just want to say THANKS for caring about my health! You said it is your life’s purpose to spread this message and I for one applaud and appreciated that! Your no-nonsense approach (of course, combined with humour) is a breath of fresh air- you’ve given me a kick which I sorely needed.Â You’re an inspiration.
“I feel less cloudy“
Thanks for a really interesting and powerful talk a couple of weeks ago. While I always had a concept of what is ‘healthy’, learning the actual amount of what we need to eat (fruit, veg, protein etc) was really beneficial. Since your seminar we’ve aimed to implement your plan of how much we should be eating and when, how much protein we should be eating and when, and making breakfast our largest meal of the day (and dinner the smallest). Even these simple changes have had a huge impact on how I’m feeling. I feel like I have more energy, and I feel less ‘cloudy’ I suppose, it’s hard to describe. Our running training has been noticeably easier, and in only a week I’ve lost a kilo without trying.
We had a long weekend in Sydney recently which involved a lot of eating out and a birthday party, and we didn’t get nearly enough veg in, had too much booze and I’ve been feeling sluggish ever since. So I’ve been reminded how I used to feel most of the time.
I found that thinking about what I need to eat, rather than what I need to avoid has been good too. It’s not a mental state of deprivation, it’s one of abundance, and it’s great to be excited about wanting to eat what is going to make me feel energized and good.
To put things in perspective – I am very much a devotee of hot chips and a glass (or three) of wine, so I’m not by any means a health extremist. But now I just don’t want to eat all that other stuff – it’s weird, in all the years I’ve spent reading about nutrition and weight loss, I’ve never felt so compelled so easily to follow something. Not only do I carry in my head ‘live food and dead food’ all the time now, I am very much reminded of why we should be eating this way, and have tangible results that tell me my body is happier for it.
Emma: Freelance journalist and copywriter.
Thanks again – it really was a very important and strong message that has totally changed the way I now look at food.
