Judy D, Greece, 59 – Adrenal Fatigue

After many years of life threatening illnesses, I was struggling with the after effects. I decided  I needed more than a diagnosis of Post Thrombotic Syndrome and a prescription for anti- depressants.  Fortunately for me I came across Marek’s web site, on the subject of Adrenal Fatigue. Everything I read was just what I was experiencing, so I contacted Marek straight away and organised an appointment. This was June 2012.

Marek is the most straight talking, understanding, sympathetic guy I have ever had the pleasure to meet. He understood right away what I had been going through and made me feel that all my symptoms were real and not imagined, as many in ‘the profession’  tried to say they were. I talked, Marek made notes. For anyone out there who has Adrenal Imbalance, (as Marek calls it) you will know the symptoms, but here are a few that I experienced:

- Sleep disruption

- Anxiety

- Low mood

-No energy

-Fear

All of these and more, Marek has addressed, slowly and at MY pace. My treatment started with diet. I have always had a reasonable diet but Marek introduced supplements to give me that little extra that my diet was lacking. After each consultation I would make a note of any changes (good or bad) and then we would discuss these changes and amend/alter accordingly. He would always tell me that I was doing great and any time I needed advice or help he was always available, to give me support and encouragement. In all the time Marek has been ‘my man’ as I call him to my friends, he hasn’t just treated the symptoms but, along with tests, he has found the under lying cause of WHY am I experiencing them.

For the last 2 years we have used skype for my consultations and after each session I am always amazed at the extent of his knowledge of the human body. I am so impressed with him that I have recommended him to my friends and family. Happily I can say I am healthier, fitter and have more energy than before my ‘major’ illness, and it is all down to working together with Marek.  Marek will be the one I turn to whenever I need advice or help with my health, he is my inspiration!

Michael, Suffolk, 59 – Adrenal Fatigue and Gallstones

Since meeting Marek a few years ago my health has improved no end, originally I was lacking energy and when he did an adrenal test he found that they were exhausted so he treated me with various herbs, minerals and vitamins.

Also I recently had a gallbladder attack, and was admitted to hospital for a few days luckily the condition subsided and I was discharged, but as an out patient a scan showed stones, so I was told gallbladder removal was the only way forward and they strongly advised I book in in a few weeks.
Luckily I phoned Marek, and again was treated naturopathically. Over a six month period, the stones dissolved; this was 2 years ago and have not suffered since.

I cannot recommend Marek enough, his knowledge of the human body is amazing and I continue to use him and will do in preference to all others.

JN, England, 38 – Multiple Sclerosis

I first saw Marek about 10 months after I had been diagnosed with MS.  In that time my health had deteriorated; a friend who had benefited from his help for an unrelated condition felt I may benefit from seeing him.  My future was looking increasingly uncertain in terms of my mobility and general health, and I felt I had nothing to lose. 

Following the initial consultation, Marek recommended an anti-Candida diet and the benefits were felt almost immediately. Further changes were made after that to improve my sleep and energy levels.  Marek continues to make recommendations to improve my health and, although we are still making improvements, my health and future look increasingly better than they did when we first met.

CK, London, 31-year-old dancer – Adrenal Fatigue / Insomnia

I first came to see Marek in July  of 2013. At this point, I had been feeling ill pretty much all of my adult life and was desperate for a solution. My energy levels were getting lower and lower each and every year and it had started to affect my career.  My biggest problem was that I couldn’t sleep properly for more than 2 hours, no matter what I tried and this was affecting everything else. I had seen doctors but all told me that I was depressed and that I should take anti-depressants. I knew this wasn’t the case, but I felt I had no alternative and tried citalopram and had a terrible reaction.

My doctor told me that this was a ‘normal’ reaction and that I should stick it out. Luckily I did a google search and found one of Marek’s articles. It was eye-opening to say the least – I then read more and more of his articles and realized I had finally found someone who understood what I was going through. I saw Marek in London and went through my case history and what I was experiencing. It was incredible to actually speak to someone who was calm and listened and actually UNDERSTOOD what I was saying. At the end of the session, Marek summarized his thoughts and explained how we could make a difference. He also make some suggestions for my diet and supplements, and also ordered two tests.

The relief I felt at this point is impossible to describe. I think deep down, I felt that I would never get better. But in the last 13 months I have been on such a journey – first my sleep was sorted within a few days, then Marek balanced out my adrenals and my energy and co-ordination soured, then I began to get stronger and leaner –  I write this a year on and I feel AMAZING.

I genuinely do not know what I would be doing right now if it wasn’t for Marek. He has totally changed my life and I will be grateful forever.

JF, Wiltshire, 42 – Adrenal Fatigue / CFS / “everything”

I have had so many health problems and I have seen so many different practitioners over the course of the last 20 years that I do not know where to start. Only to say that Marek is by far the most knowledgeable individual I have ever been fortunate to speak to and the only practitioner that has been able to grasp my problems.

I came to see Marek last year after a forum user had described his situation and how Marek had been helpful. I has suffered from pretty much every symptom you can think of for 20 years – the main ones were crushing (and I mean crushing) fatigue, extreme brain fog, no sex drive, low mood, pain in every joint and every limb and and waves of nausea. I was barely existing.  I had seen practitioners in the USA in the 90s and more recently in France and had basically given up hope. Every single thing that was suggested to me caused a huge reaction. Marek was my last resort.

What I really liked about speaking to Marek is that he wasn’t trying to find a way to ‘pep me up’. Even though my energy levels were so low, he explained how high my adrenaline response was and explained what steps we should take. He was also careful to tell me what to expect at what time and we worked out a 5-stage plan. Probably the most important thing is that Marek took steps to improve circulation to my central nervous system and this stopped me from having such negative reactions to every single supplement.

I felt the ‘good tiredness’ within a few days of starting the protocol. This was a key moment. From that point on, it hasn’t been a smooth ride but I have seen big steps forward. The process is not finished yet, but after 9 months, I am feeling the best I have ever felt and continue to improve.

I thought I was an impossible case. Marek has proved otherwise. I would recommend Marek to anyone (and I do).

Sharon, London, 33 – Adrenal Fatigue / PMS / Migraines

From the age of 13, I had been suffering with terrible PMS, to the extent that I would regularly have to take days off work. Painkillers hardly touched it and I would feel anxiety leading up to my ‘time of the month’ just at the thought of the pain that I knew would hit me. I used to migraines at all different times which would see me have to go into a dark room and stay there all day.

I had tried using the contraceptive pill but this only reduced the pain by a little. I knew this wasn’t a long-term option as me and my partner plan to conceive in the near future so I began to see a local nutritionist. I felt a bit more energetic as a result, but it had no effect on my PMS or migraines. A work colleague told me about Marek and I emailed him to book an appointment.

I have now been working with Marek for 6 months. Marek ran blood and saliva tests. It turned out that my adrenals  were the route of the problem. We have introduced omega 3s, evening primrose oil and magnesium. We have also done a protocol for balancing my adrenals and boosting my progesterone levels back into the normal range. Last month I had my first pain-free period EVER. Anyone who knows me will know that this is a miracle. I have not had a single migraine for over 4 months now – they used to be a every other week, so this is truly unbelievable.

I would like to thank Marek for being so good at explaining what was happening in my body and explaining why he had made the suggestions. I wasn’t the best patient, especially at the start, but Marek was always so nice with me and just smiled and told me why I should make the changes. I don’t think I will ever meet someone so knowledgeable about the human body.

Liz Brewer, author of The Party Bible, and etiquette teacher & judge in ITV series ‘Ladette to lady’

I had reached the stage in my life when I was beginning to be aware of my upper arms – they had that ‘chicken wing’ look. About to embark on filming the sixth series of Ladette to Lady, I discussed with him if there was any hope for me to reverse my ‘upper arm’ situation effectively. Marek suggested a course of resistance and boxing sessions – fun I thought, and also useful for some of the situations I occasionally found myself in with those unruly Ladettes!

Before starting on my twice weekly sessions in the basement gym of my house, Marek also discussed my health issues, including hayfever (from which I have suffered acutely for the last 30 years from June to July, occasionally having to cancel arrangements to stay in a darkened room).

Marek suggested a daily course of various vitamins and minerals and, since the middle of February this year, I have duly taken this blend of nutrients every morning. I had also stocked up on the various eye drops and allergy pills but, now in July, I have just realised I have not touched them at all! I have had a carefree season, and not a single hayfever attack! Marek describes this as rebalancing the Th1/Th2 arms of my immune system.

Also (again without really noticing it) I have, in the last few weeks of good weather, reverted to sleeveless tops and dresses and I am acutely aware that the tops of my arms have what is commonly referred to as DEFINITION!

I LOVE the boxing and, according to Marek, I am a natural – which makes me feel really good – although I have to admit I hate the resistance sessions… BUT IT WORKS, so I persevere! I have always loved the feel-good factor, now I have the upper arm ‘good-look’ factor too!

Julia Foxwell, World Champion Skydiver

The past two years has been hard work for our team to meet our goal of winning both competitions. We have not only needed to train in the air and in the wind tunnel, but physically in the gym as well. Before I met you, my physical training was OK but I wasn’t progressing my fitness or strength as quickly as I needed it to be.

The progress I saw in my work  with you was incredible. In just a few short weeks, I noticed I was improving in strength, my overall fitness was increasing and I was looking better too! You not only helped with which exercises were right for me, but you explained why they were necessary too. You also helped on what were the best foods to eat along with when to each them as well which I found really useful.

You are a true professional and definitely helped me achieve my ultimate goal of becoming a World Champion, Thank you for all your help, I would recommend you to anyone.

Juliette Heathcote, Hampshire

We first met back in 2006, at a stressful and difficult time in my life following a car accident which had left me with a neck injury. The accident was in December 2004 and following nearly a year and a half of serious neck and shoulder problems when I had great difficulty exercising, I tried to return to my fitness levels that I had before the accident but found that I could not get my weight or my strength back on my own. In that time I had gained about 11kg in weight and I was the heaviest I had ever been. Shortly before we met I had visited the gym twice and blacked out on both occasions whilst using very straightforward pieces of equipment and this made me nervous about over exerting myself in any way at all. At this point I decided I needed some guidance and support and got in touch with you.

Whilst I am a sporty person I had always been a bit nervous of gyms, giving myself completely the wrong impression of the people there and what gym exercise was all about. (You certainly changed my view!) A regular horse rider, cyclist, tennis player and swimmer, these had been my primary sporting interests. Due to my neck injury I found my usual activities were provoking the injury, rather than strengthening the muscles and so you devised a program that allowed me to focus on building my strength back up so I could get back to doing what I love most (horse riding!)

As your approach was a holistic one, it didn’t just look at my exercise but also at my diet. Aware that I suffer from PCOS I have always been extremely careful with what I eat and drink, and you said at the time that my diet was extremely good and healthy, you provided great support and encouragement and told me I was doing a great job to manage my weight as PCOS sufferers do tend to put the pounds on more easily. You pushed for further investigation to see why I was finding it so hard to shift my extra weight though. Allergies were diagnosed, sleeping patterns, mood swings and my immune system were looked at and it turned out that I was in a state of adrenal fatigue, a condition I had never heard of! Following guidance on supplements and diet to deal with this,  my weight started to fall off, and now I am back to where I want to be. My moods are better, my sleeping pattern has improved so much and I can wear all the clothes that I wore before I had my car crash.

I thought the only people with individualized nutritional support were models, actors, professional athletes… not people who sat at desks from 9-6. I always thought I was too busy but you proved that even I could get there! At 5’10″ (and a bit) and 63kg, having reduced my body fat by over 30%, I am now one healthy, happy lady.

I really cannot thank you enough for everything you have done and are still doing for me. Your approach to mind, body and soul through exercise, diet and general well being has completely turned my life around. I am back riding confidently (competing every weekend and I am registering now with the BSJA for next year – that is proper competition!) I would never have got there on my own. Thanks Marek, you’re the best.”
