Success Story

"We came across Foresight as we decided to try for our first child (we had previously had a miscarriage). We understood it as a different approach to healthy living and have kept on, despite not planning any more children, a lot of your principles and advice in our daily routine. We get our fresh produce (fruit, veg, dairy, eggs, meat) delivered from local organic farms and have not found our bills going up, as we stick to what we get! I threw aluminium cookware out and replaced it for glass or stainless steel and cut out artificially composed foods. We also did hair analysis and have been filtering our water for almost 4 years now (we have now invested in an osmosis filter) as our heavy metals were quite high.

We got pregnant immediately on both occasions and my pregnancies and births were both very straight forward (one water birth, one natural) and we now have two bright and healthy sparks challenging our existence (you didn't warn us about that!!)

I thank you for the encouragement on breastfeeding as I have a predisposition to hayfever and it seems that, so far, my children haven't got any! This, in my mind, is due to their healthy start in life thanks to your leadership and inspiration."
