Published articles and academic research

I was referred to Denise in 2015 by my integrative GP from Perth for hormone and methylation related issues that he was unable to resolve. Denise recommended Dutch test for hormones, genes testing and comprehensive stool analysis in the initial investigation. After reviewing my genetics and test results, she came up with an action plan that normalized my hormones very quickly. I continue to Skype consult Denise once to twice a year to keep on track with everything. Since then I have referred my daughter, my mum and other family members to her for various health problems and they have all been very happy. Denise is renowned in her field of Nutrigenomics. She actively presents in seminars all over the world. I was fortunate enough to attend one of them when she came to Perth. That has empowered me with so much knowledge for my quest towards optimal health. Denise comes highly recommended. With her constantly updating and evolving with science, with her infectious, happy, bubbly personality, there will be no doubt that you will be impressed.
