I first saw Heidi in 2016 after my chemotherapy and radiation therapy ended. At the time I had very bad thrush in my mouth caused by the radiation in my throat area. The thrush was very difficult to get rid of, but eventually it was cured and never came back. Since then Heidi has been working on strengthening my immune system and getting my whole system back into balance. Her tireless effort, dedication and passion have been invaluable. My health now is better than it ever has been and I will be forever grateful. 

Now, two years later,  I feel fit and strong, but I have realised the maintenance of the body is a continual process and I will continue to work with Heidi for as long as I live.  - David Bolton, Cape Town

 I really do not know how to thank Heidi for everything that she did for me.  She is awesome and caring.  Always just an e-mail away from her patients.  I love the new and healthier me.  Problems that I had for years just magically got sorted out.  Although I went to Heidi for a severe candida overgrowth, my overall health improved drastically.  The ringing in my ears and bloody nose disappeared after struggling with it for 5 years, after seeing the best ear and nose specialists, after 2 operations … it just disappeared.  My receding gums for the past 20 years … are growing back.  Severe muscle spasms that left me incapable to function …. not a single one since I am on Heidi’s regiment.  Naturally I also kicked candida’s butt!  I love the fact that Heidi listened to me.  I love the way my skin feels and that my energy levels are higher.  But most of all, I love the fact that Heidi opened my eyes to other medicines than conventional medicines, to a different lifestyle that only benefits my health and well being.  Like I said … I love the new and healthier me and I made, with the help and caring support of Heidi, a lifestyle change that benefits me in so many ways.  Thank you, Heidi. - Antonett Botes, Pretoria

Earlier this year, at 31 years old, I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. My hands had been achingly painful for 2 months and I had no idea why. I was in so much pain and had no strength in my hands to do the simplest of tasks. I went to see a Rheumatologist, who spent all of 15 minutes with me and prescribed lifelong chemotherapy drugs as treatment for the diagnosis. As a vegan, yogi and believer in holistic treatment this did not sit well with me. My anxiety reared it's ugly head and had me stressed out and in pain and not knowing where to turn to next. By chance I met a friend who put me in touch with Dr Leila Sadien and Heidi du Preez. With the expert help and amazing care of these ladies, I started a strict gluten-free, wheat-free, sugar-free, gut reset diet and supplement protocol. Working closely with Heidi, I am now absolutely pain free. My joints are healthy and happy and my digestive system is the healthiest it's ever been. The diet is strict and there are many supplements to stick to but the hard work has paid off. The care and attention I receive from Heidi is key to this healing process. She is on board with me every step of the way. She has incredible knowledge of the digestive system and how correct diet effects the body and what supplements are absolutely beneficial to my specific situation. I feel nurtured, respected and very well looked after in her care. I attribute my pain free joints to Heidi's in depth knowledge and genuine care and concern for me. 

Introducing animal proteins, although it breaks my heart, has helped immensely with my pain levels! I've introduced fish, chicken, ostrich and kudu biltong, as well as feta and mozzarella. I am close to pain free. My energy levels are amazing and I haven't had any anxiety in the last month. I am SO happy and relieved! Thank you so much! - Dominique, Cape Town

My name is Martesia Bezuidenhout. I’m a 52 year old woman living in the Eastern Cape. I have been battling with health issues for many years.  My doctor did not have answers for it and I often felt ridiculous sharing my experiences with her because it did not make sense and many times led to her offering me antidepressants. I refused them because my system just cannot tolerate it. Medicating me became a huge concern because of adverse reactions to almost anything - this became worse over the last ten years especially. I could not even tolerate normal supplements like magnesium and vitamins.  
 
Alongside the above mentioned problems, food sensitivities led to food intolerances which became worst at a rapid pace. I kept eliminating food just to keep going.  I ended up in a place this year where I could only eat 10 different foods without getting terrible symptoms like severe anxiety, depression, mood swings, fatigue and very poor sleep, etc.  This impacted my life and family very negatively. I felt that I’m losing my life and I’m in deep trouble. 

By grace I landed with Heidi du Preez. After recording my history over the past 27 years, she could explain to my why this all happened, what was wrong and the good news .... that there is hope!!!
 
I have to add that, after reading the treatment protocol, I cried for hours - pure fear - because I knew my system will not be able to tolerate anything new. Because I have too little stomach acid, Heidi suggested starting with Betaine HCL (with Bromelain and papain) first - which I started taking on 9 November 2017. I really feel it made a difference from day one. Within 3 days I could start following the treatment protocol Heidi suggested to heal my gut/system. I was SO surprised that I could take magnesium for instance, with very GOOD results.  Hope really started rising in my heart because I feel improvement on a daily basis!! I’m getting my life back! I feel great after meals, I am eating so many things that I was not able to eat for a very long time. I’m enjoying food again! My symptoms are almost gone most days. After only two weeks, I started slowly weaning off my anxiety medication, which I have been using for the past 6 years! I’m super positive about the future with good health!

*******

I have been taking Betaine HCL, and wow what a difference. My stomach does not feel bloated and food does not get stuck in my gut like it used to. If I don’t use the HCL I know about it.

I have been off coffee now for three weeks and have been on your eating plan for one week. The week before last, I took a break and stayed with a friend in Greyton for a couple of days. The friend is a vegetarian and I came back so ill from eating supposedly health food. I am definitely feeling the benefits of the last weeks diet.

This morning was the first day that I have woken up feeling half human and had a little energy to get through the day. Normally I can’t get up and I feel like death wormed up, and go through the day feeling rotten, and by afternoon I’m finished. - AC, Cape Town

In 2012 het my man `n groot hartomleidings operasie ondergaan. Na 3 weke in die hoësorgeenheid is hy ontslaan en het stadig maar seker herstel. Hy is huis toe gestuur met 8 verskillende medikasies wat hy moes gebruik. Op die langeduur het hierdie medikasies begin om hulle tol te eis. Hy het omtrent die heeldag in sy stoel gesit en slaap en hy was moedeloos, want hy het geen krag gehad nie.

In 2016 het ons met Heidi kennis gemaak deur middel van die internet. Dit was soos `n wonderwerk. Ons het dieet drasties aangepas. Sy het ons geadviseer rondom die gebruik van aanvullings. Sy het ook die voorskrif met 8 verskillende medikasies bestudeer en met haar aanbevelings was my man instaat om dit af te werk na slegs 3 medikasies wat hy maandeliks op voorskrif moes kry. Vir die res kon sy meer natuurlike middels (sonder die newe-effekte) aanbeveel.

Danksy Heidi se betrokkenheid kan my man weer `n vol fikse lewe lei. Sy het ons albei se lewens drasties ten goede verander. Dankie daarvoor Heidi du Preez - LdP, Pretoria

About 17 months ago I started having abdominal cramps combined with very difficult bowel movements.  This situation continued although I tried everything I could to remedy this.  The cramps and serious constipation got even worse and I contacted Heidi for an assessment and guidance with natural products.  At this stage I was having horrible visions of intestinal/stomach cancer and this brought a lot of fear which I absolutely did not need on top of all the other symptoms.  I am so grateful we could get to the root of the problem in a short period of time and Heidi was able to prescribe the necessary products.  I have been using the products for about 8 months now combined with an appropriate eating plan and have never been in such good health as now.  All the constipation has disappeared and I have no pain anymore.  What a blessing you are, Heidi, and I thank God for His wisdom and guidance during the whole process.  May thousands of other people benefit from this same process and products, it is indeed worth it! - Erna, East London

Dear Heidi
You have now I idea how much you have helped me on this unexpected journey that I have had to take since January 2017. Since being diagnosed with cancer I knew that I had to get my lifestyle in order and my health back on track, but at the same time the methodology followed had to fight the cancer too. After our first consultation I knew I had found the right person! Not only because I was determined to make it work, but because you truly gave me hope. You became my lifeline on earth in those first weeks. Thanks for always answering the phone when I was uncertain and encouraging me to make the right choices.

Making the lifestyle and health changes you advised and walking the road with me has not only assisted me in losing 25kg, there has been significant reduction of the cancer too. My body is actually healing itself! I know by keeping on the right track the cancer will soon be gone. Amen! I know now more than ever that the right foods can indeed cure illness and revitalise your body. Thanks you for your immeasurable help and guidance! - Konrad Zeelie

 I’m feeling fantastic now! So much more energy in the mornings and no cravings, maybe only very infrequently just before my menstrual period. My emotional relationship with food has almost vanished and I no longer look to food as punishment but a way to nourish my body. I have also been doing a lot of soul searching on the emotional traumas of my past. Feeling very positive about the future! - Aingy Chantel Lee

Heidi is fantastic and is so knowledgeable, she has helped me so much with my health. I feel so much better a year after going to her. - IC, Riebeek Kasteel

I went to the doctor for a general check-up and mentioned that I was experiencing pain behind my knees.  The pain was diagnosed as arthritis and medication was offered, which I refused as it was not severe at that stage.  A few months later the pain levels increased to the extend that I found it difficult to drive. I decided to go for an X-ray to confirm the arthritis.  The X-ray confirmed no arthritis or bone degeneration. I consulted with Heidi who discovered that I had parasites and worms, treated me for that and some extra nutrients.  Within a week the discomfort subsided.  It has been 5 months, I feel 10 years younger, no discomfort in my knees, energy levels have increased and feel amazing. I will be eternally grateful to Heidi for her advice and am horrified to think that I was nearly on the wrong treatment - Annie Bain –  from Cape Town

Three and a half years ago I was barely able to walk from one side of the room to another. I was diagnosed and suffering with Lymes disease, depression,  ME as well as many Co infections affecting multiple organs from an overload of parasitical activity. My every day consisted of nausea, headaches, body aches,pain and severe weakness to name only a few. My quality of life was not great and I could no longer work due to my illnesses-this all as a newly wed.  4 months ago I met Heidi which I am beyond grateful for and believe it was an answer to much prayer. Through good nutrition and supplementation Heidi has helped me to detox my body from the huge amounts of medication and overgrowth of yeast and my body has started to heal naturally. I have not felt this good in a very long time. Most of my symptoms have been alleviated  and my energy levels are coming back, much to the thankfulness of my husband. I am able to take my dog for walks and do normal activities with much more ease. My quality of life has improved drastically- and friends are noticing improvements too. Thank you Heidi for sharing your knowledge with me with such support,  compassion and genuine care for my well being. - Kirsty D –  from Cape Town

My grateful thanks for Heidi du Preez for coming into my life and showing me a way out of being methyl toxic. My entire married life (46 years) I have struggled with systemic candidiasis. Although I was one of the first people in South Africa to remove my mercury fillings from 22 teeth (from 1983 onwards), I struggled to remove the methyl mercury from my body. Only through Heidi’s advice and knowledge have I realised that mercury toxicity and systemic candidiasis are connected – mercury and candida hiding in all the scar tissues from all the many eye and gynea operations that I had in my life.

Due to methyl toxicity it was predicted in my 30’s that by the time I would be in my 40’s I would be in a wheelchair. Heidi has really been a shining light along my long, rocky road of recovery to good health. Now at 70 I look and feel 20 years younger! - DL –  from Cape Town

Connecting with Heidi was something the universe planned, I’m sure. I suffered with bad candida for many years (since my teens), as well as a hiatal hernia which caused me severe pain just about every day. I had no idea what I was doing wrong. I was told I had low-blood pressure, vertigo, acid reflux and the hernia, but all of the doctors just kept giving me pills. I never thought that the cheese on my toast, or the biscuit before bed could be the reasons for such discomfort.

After a diagnosis via my GP that showed candida overgrowth, I looked up to the sky and said, “Please send me to the right person. I don’t want to keep having to drink Mayogel four times a day and take antifungals every few months. I need to know how to stop this naturally.” Well, that night I found Heidi via a Google search. She came up quickly in the search engine under a search for ‘candida, western cape’, if I can remember correctly. She conducted a thorough examination in the form of a questionnaire, with some really bizarre questions! A week later we began phase one of the diet. I never knew giving up sugar could be so difficult; because it is in just about everything these days! I also stopped all dairy and gluten. It was difficult at first to know what to eat, but over time I eventually found the right combinations. Phase two was also a little tricky as the candida died off slowly (and wasn’t going to go quietly)! I had a few uncomfortable side-effects, but they only lasted a few days.

After roughly three months, the course was done. I now know just what I can and can’t eat, and I’m able to maintain a healthy diet, one that keeps me regular. I no longer feel pain which is a great blessing (after so many years), and I can eat the ‘good stuff’ without those confusing ‘sugar rushes’ or moments of fatigue. I have become more relaxed, and feel far more mature than I did a few months ago (that may sound strange, but I feel as though I’ve matured as a woman by simply knowing what is right and what is wrong regarding diet). It is not an easy road at all, and it can cost an unexpected penny, but I have no regrets what-so-ever. I’ll be thirty-eight-years-old this year (2015) and it’s the first time I have ever ‘invested’ in my health. Without Heidi I probably would’ve continued with visits to the GP for antifungals and the chemist for antacids, and so on. Her knowledge on the human body and nutrition (like a language from another planet) has made an exceptional change in my life… even though I have never met her face-to-face! I’m thankful for her assistance at this stage in my life, and feel she has saved me years of discomfort and unnecessary medications that I would have met had I not found her. I highly recommend her professional advice. Even though what she says at first may sound like ‘new-age-hippie-dippie-balony’, every word is the truth; I can say this from experience! It is sad to think of how many women will suffer without the type of information she has to give. From one (ex) sufferer to another, if you have found Heidi, don’t give working with her a second thought. Go for it. She’s like a needle in a haystack! – Carly van Heerden – Sedgefield, Garden Route

“Laas jaar 2013 April maand het ek 48kg geweeg en my lengte is 1.83m – my normale gewig is 90kg so dus was ek letterlik anoreksia en bedlêend. Dokters het my 3 maande gegee om te lewe maar die Here het ‘n ander plan gehad. Een Sondag middag het ek ‘The Journal of Natural Medicine’ deur geblaai en afgekom op ‘n artikel van Heidi du Preez en dit was net asof die Here vir my bly sê het om met haar in kontak te kom. Ek het Maandag gebel en so het my lewe verander. Ek het kwik vergiftiging gehad maar dit was nie net my tande nie ek het ook op die mynplant gewerk wat radio aktief en kwik gehad het. My eerste tekens was dat ek baie moeg was , baie rooi oë ons praat nie eers van die geel vel nie. Heidi het my so baie gehelp en ‘n volledige verslag gedoen asook gefaks ek was regtig in my skik. Sy het so baie dinge raak gevat en wat nog die beste van alles was my kinders het erg allergieë gehad en dit is opgelos. Ek wil die eer aan die Here gee dat hy Heidi so gebruik het om ‘n verskil in my familie se lewe te maak. Al wat ‘n mens kan vashou is daar is hoop en geloof en vandag is ek gesond en kan die lewe saam met my familie geniet.” – JJ FOURIE van Virginia, Vrystaat

“Once the realisation hit that I had become diagnosed with Ulcerative colitis (UC) and the luxury of eating just what I wanted was no longer there… it became a difficult pill to swallow. Thinking the conventional doctor route was my only option, I struggled to no avail with my condition, not knowing if I ever would be “normal again”.” Being introduced to Heidi and realising the importance of how nutrition influenced my condition challenged my perspective on what “normal” really was. My 3 year journey with Heidi has not only highlighted the importance of natural nutrition, but also made what I thought to be an impossible lifestyle transition, substantially easier. Now healed of UC for 2 years, Heidi has brought me to the realisation that it’s only through nutritional self-discipline, spirituality and balance of life that I can maintain a healthy lifestyle.” – Anonymous from Somerset West
