Nu-Leaf - Kyeema Fanning & Petroula Kapsimallis
We don’t expect you to take our word for it but we prefer to let our satisfied customers speak on our behalf.
Over the years we’ve been able to help a variety of clients, here are just a few of their stories.
After feeling overweight, tired and lethargic for some time (and battling depression) I decided to go to Nu-Leaf after it was recommended to me by a friend who had lost 19 kilos. On my first appointment my body composition was analysed and Kyeema advised me what as to what was making me feel poorly. She gave me some supplements to take and provided me with an easy to follow eating guide to which I have been following for a month and have already lost 5.8 kilos and 22 cms, and most of all I feel fantastic! I cannot talk highly enough of the service that Kyeema provides, appointments have been easy to obtain and I now always look forward to Saturdays when I get measured, weighed and we review my progress. My advice is - don't delay - if you want to look better and most importantly feel better - book an appointment. Jacqui Sheedy
After years of being unhappy with my weight and appearance, I'd decided that I wanted to get healthy before I reached any of the 'danger zones'. I decided to try Nu-Leaf spur of the moment after a friend posted a 'Like' on Facebook. I checked their website and thought this right up my alley, what better way to go on an eating program than with the assistance of a naturopath, it's what I'd always dreamed of doing. I called my friend and heard great things about them. Going to Nu-Leaf was one of the best decisions I've ever made!!! This great health program is much easier to follow than I thought and the idea of being able to track my detailed progress regularly makes me more motivated and excited about my new way of life. I wake up with energy each day and the persistent body aches, pains and headaches are no longer a regular part of my life. Lindsay is a wonderful support and makes you feel great about every achievement you make. I highly recommend her and Nu-Leaf to anyone that is ready to take those steps to a healthier life. Tina A
After only 3 weeks I have already noticed a difference in my health and wellbeing. Feeling livelier with much more energy. Lindsay is a great inspiration and has made this tough transition period a lot more positive. Its not just your inner health she is helping with, it's your state of mind. Definitely worth visiting. And the shop has everything you could need to buy! Sam Simpson
After trying to coping with anxiety/panic attacks & depression I contacted Kyeema and within 3 weeks I feel great, I feel like the old me, bubbly, outgoing and most of all happy, I highly recommend Kyeema to anyone. Samantha Russell
I have been seeing Kyeema the past 6 weeks i have lost 4.4kg and 26cm I thought I would never lose any weight being menopausal, I look forward to my weekly visits have made it through xmas, Kyeema is lovely if you don't have a good week she encourages you to go on. so ladies if you are over 50 and think you cannot lose any weight then ring Kyeema. This would have to be the brest thing i have done. Gemma O'Riley
I have been seeing Kyeema for the last 5 weeks and I am so pleased i finally took the step to see a naturopath about my general wellbeing and lack of weightloss despite excercising and what I assumed was eating well. Kyeema has shown me the importance of eating well and what that actually is. I feel much better already having lost about 4kg and 22 cm. Appointments are always on time, Kyeema is lovely and I really look forward to going each week. Sarah Hemer
I always felt unwell - slept terribly and was piling on the weight. The doctors wanted to give me medication but I was concerned that it was only going to mask the problem and I wanted to fix it! When I found Nu-Leaf on a website I was thrilled, it was the solution to the problem. I made an appointment and haven't looked back since! In all honesty Kyeema has changed my life - after completing a detox I lost over 30cm in 6 weeks, sleep like baby, have so much energy, my skin improved and even the bags under my eyes that I have had my whole life have deminished! Kyeema is extremely helpful and has been there for me every step of the way. Thank you so much Kyeema. Change your life call Nu-Leaf! Amy Wilson
Kyeema has been great in helping me feel great and begin on the path of sorting out some of my medical conditions that I have been told cannot be fixed. She is always willing to answer any question and is very prompt in responding to any queries. After the adjustments to my diet and taking some herbal medicines, I have started feeling so much better, had more energy and have been enjoying eating healthy. She has taken different approaches to sorting out my problems that no one else has bothered to look at. I would recommend anyone to pay her a visit. Tracey Skinner
I have been so impressed with this naturopath. Very personal service. They really listen to your health issues and you don't feel hurried along like at the doctors. I also like the fact that they use scientifically verifiable ways of assessing my health improvments over time - blood and other tests that are part of the consultation process. The Metagenics range that they stock as well as the fabulous Jane Iredale makeup is fab. Very sensible approach to getting healthy - eating wholefoods as much as possible etc. Nothing fad about it. I've lost about 10 kilos, look heaps healthier and I am. I would highly recommend everyone have a naturopath like this one. Elissa Sutherland
Thank you Kyeema for all you advice with my son Zak. Zak was born 3 1/2 weeks early and we struggled with colic and reflux. I put him on formula around 12 weeks of age, and things started to settle a little. But generally he was a resless, unsettled baby. At 5 months I began solids and his restlessness, sleeping and mood became much worse. At my wits end as I hadn't slept in months, I had visited GP's and Paeditricians I finally contacted Kyeema with my dilemma. She suggested I try a particular formula with Zak rather than a cows milk formula as it contained less lactose and he may be able to digest it easier. After 2 weeks on the new formula Zak improved dramatically he starting sleeping though and generally was a different settled baby his bowel movements became daily instead of weekly. Now at 10 months there isn't much Zak hasn't eaten, is growing out of sight and almost walking. Thank you so much for your advice, sometimes a new set of eyes with fresh approach is just what us mums need! Britt & Zak Larkin
I have been with Nu-leaf for a few weeks and I am already feeling fantastic. I went to see Kyeema for help with my weight, but she has changed my whole life. I have been to tonnes of Dr's over the past few years with health problems and no one could help. I am now on a program that is tailored to my specific needs and I feel fantastic! With Nu-leaf and Kyeemas help, I lost 4 kg in my first week. This is not a one size fits all program, and Kyeema is fantastic at focusing on what your body needs. I can't recommend it highly enough! Stacey Richardson
The experience I encountered with Nu-Leaf was excellent as I found the approach used was very down to earth, non-comfronting and the products were great. I learnt so much about my body and formed a better understanding of foods resulting in a much healthier lifestyle. Thanks Nu-Leaf for all your help the help :) Paula & Max Smeriglio
I had a weight problem after I had my second child. It was very hard for me to reduce my weight so I went to get some assistance from Nu-Leaf. The practitioner was very thorough and discussed my condition and advised me on what to do. That was the turning point. Nu-Leaf are very friendly and knowledgable.
I lost almost 12kg in 3 months and my Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome issue has been resolved.
I would suggest anyone with any health condition to talk to Nu-Leaf and reap the benefits of natural medicine. I have so much confidence in Nu-Leaf I now consult them for my children and husband's well-being also. Priya Ramaraju
Finally I've found a program that has helped me. Kyeema has put me on the right path and it all makes sense. I shed 45cm/10kg in the past 2 months! A new me & people are noticing. I feel 200% better, have more energy, don't crave foods anymore, finally understanding why I couldn't lose the weight previously. Thank you for listening to me and putting me on the right path. I'm finally beginning to love myself! Liz Alfoxandis
Tim came to Nu-Leaf weighing 106.7kg and had blood pressure of 154/110. Tim joined up for the 10 week Weight Loss Program at Nu-leaf and within one week the weight started to fall off! As Tim’s weight loss continued he noticed a huge difference in his health and his fitness improved dramatically. Tim had more energy than he had had in years and his blood pressure dropped to 135/76! After 10 weeks of following Nu-Leaf’s program Tim had lost 12.7kg and 50cm’s. To add to his great results Tim lost a further 2.7kg and 8cms after 11 weeks on maintenance. Now Tim feels better than ever before, with his weight loss he has changed his whole out look on life and doesn't require blood pressure medication. Tim O'Hea

Kyeema has a passion for helping people to be the best they can be. She specialises in weight loss but also sees many clients for other conditions such as PMS, menopause, endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, arthritis, detoxification programs and pre-conception care.
Kyeema also takes a keen interest in skin conditions, having been an eczema sufferer herself as a teenager. Before Kyeema became a naturopath, during her VCE, she began suffering from eczema. After three years of supressing the symptoms with cortisone cream she experienced a side effect from the cream that scarred her for life. Her doctors said "it was something you will have for the rest of your life, learn to deal with it" but Kyeema did not accept this. While searching for an alternative she discovered naturopathy and after 6 months of treatment she was cured.
Kyeema is passionate about sharing her knowledge with anyone that wants to learn how, they t,o can benefit from natural medicine. She aims to support your body's innate ability to heal itself by removing obstacles to health and providing support to restore vitality and create well being.

Kyeema also takes into account the traditional history of use of natural medicines and applies it when appropriate. She believes it is important to choose a method of treatment that will do no harm to the patient and aims to treat the cause of the symptoms rather than suppressing or hiding the problem with medication.
Kyeema regularly attends training courses and seminars to remain abreast of the latest developments in the healthcare industry allowing her to impart the latest information and findings to you, making faster, more successful results available to you. She also prefers to use natural remedies, supported by valid, scientific data that substantiates the effect it has on the healing process.
