Success Stories

author
Tom Peddie
Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Corus Entertainment Inc.
“I was introduced to Ashley, by my daughter, who has experienced migraine headaches most of her life. She had been prescribed medication by a neurologist, but she was concerned she would be on prescription drugs for the rest of her life. With the help and guidance of Ashley she was able to isolate the food items and lifestyle issues that were contributing to the headaches and effectively eliminate the causes. It does not mean that the migraines are no longer in her life but they are no longer an issue. We can thank Ashley for that. In my case I was excited to work with Ashley, not only because of her success with my daughter, but because she is a competitive athlete who also works with elite level and professional athletes. It was important to me that I have a doctor who ``walks the talk``. I have been a life long marathon runner who wanted to do an Ironman triathlon. Although I felt quite knowledgeable about my nutrition and my body I found that as I increased the volume of training my immune system suffered making me more vulnerable to fatigue and infections. When I picked up a respiratory infection which stopped me from racing I knew I needed help. With Ashley's help and direction we adjusted my diet and added vitamins and herbal based supplements to eliminate the problem. I was then able to ramp up my training and complete the Ironman healthy and injury free. Without Ashley's help I would never have made it to the start line let alone finish. She is professional, supportive, enthusiastic and has a genuine desire to help her clients achieve their personal goals and overall better health.”
