Gayle Merchant Testimonials


The Success of Nutrition & Functional Medicine

After just a few short months Gayle with her holistic approach and her wide knowledge has turned my health and life around on all levels, mind, body and spirit. Gayle takes time to listen intently to you and she is always there for support when needed. This has been a priceless experience for me I am truly grateful and I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to feel fit and well again.”


Gayle took a lot of time to fully probe my medical history to elicit information. It is a relief to find someone who will take all my symptoms into consideration and to try and piece them together to find solutions.
This is the holistic approach that I have been looking for, backed up by Gayle’s considerable knowledge and qualifications. Working with Gayle feels like I am finally able to take control and find answers. I am excited by the journey ahead.


I can honestly say that Gayle has made such an amazing, positive impact on my health and I cannot be more grateful. I started visiting Gayle around three years ago, after having my gallbladder removed. The gallbladder removal had unfortunately not resolved many of my stomach issues. I was often sick and struggled to hold down food. Sleep was also a problem for me. This obviously resulted in me being permanently exhausted and I felt I reached the end of the road with what my GP could offer me. Gayle’s knowledge of nutrition backed up by functional tests highlighted what might be the issue, and with a guided change in diet and some natural supplements, I soon started to feel better. Gayle is very patient and understanding, she just keeps gently encouraging you to try to change for the better. I can’t remember the last time I was sick now and I have so much more energy! My passion for life has returned and I am so much more capable of juggling the busy life I lead.”

Since first meeting with Gayle, our little boy has gone from strength to strength. We saw a significant improvement within days. Gayle’s approach, supportive manner and results, mean that we have and will continue to recommend her to our nearest and dearest. We are so grateful that we found her!”


I would just like to thank you for all you help and support through my journey over the last few years, having struggled with various health problems my entire life.
Gayle has transformed the way I manage my health, with advice and support throughout my journey. I can’t thank Gayle enough, you have changed my life
and have helped my children and granddaughter along the way and now my husband as he starts his journey of healing his health.”


I’ve been on my health journey with Gayle for more than a year, and I admire very much her approach of looking at the whole picture. Having someone who can understand all the layers of the issues and not just try to patch up a symptom is so invaluable. Gayle always brings new resources to my plans, and her recommendations have helped me to re-balance my health. I highly recommend her to everyone who wants to reach optimal health.


I was diagnosed with autoimmune thyroiditis in 2018 – probably already affected by this for 10yrs. Gayle has been a pleasure to work with. She spends time to discuss all aspects of health and lifestyle (unlike GP visits). With Gayle’s holistic approach and depth of knowledge we have created a relationship that has enabled me to take significant strides in improving my health. Hashimoto’s is a lifelong condition and I am happy that I navigate it more effectively with Gayle’s care and support.


I can’t recommend Gayle enough. I didn’t have a great relationship with food, so Gayle met me where I was and I never felt judged. Gayle wrote a plan that took the whole of me into account, using supplements and easy to prepare meals that have given me my energy back, increased my vitality and given me hope. I am now on a path to a much healthier journey with food.”


I have found Gayle Merchant to be a highly competent professional in her field. She was extremely thorough in her initial assessment of my health and in her consideration of the whole body rather than just the aspect I was most interested in. Gayle is always prepared to carry out additional research in pursuit of the best solution, personally tailored. This resulted in a much more ‘rounded’ nutritional approach for my needs than might otherwise have been the case. I have been very pleased with my health outcomes on a personal basis and continue to discuss and take the advice offered, for which there is no pressure.”


I first contacted Gayle 12 months ago to see if she could help with the menstrual migraines I had been experiencing for some time. From the very first appointment, Gayle put me at ease and was extremely thorough in her assessments and investigations in order to provide me with the best support possible. Since then, I have seen Gayle every few months for reviews, and I can honestly say I feel so much better. The migraines are much improved and I feel my general health and well being continues to get better with Gayle’s guidance. She is incredibly knowledgeable and I would highly recommend Gayle to anyone looking to optimise their health and well-being.”


I saw Gayle as I was clinically overweight. After an appointment with Gayle I completely changed my view and understanding of weight loss. Within 2 months I had lost 2 stone 5lb. My unpleasant symptoms of restless legs syndrome have considerably lessened for the first time in many years. I cannot thank Gayle enough for effectively turning my life around by achieving a weight loss I thought was impossible.”


Gayle was recommended by my GP with a view to improving my general health having been unwell for many years. I was impressed by her knowledge and professionalism and delighted by my improved medical conditions within a few months.”
