Consultations

Addressing Your Health Concerns

About Our Consultations

Our consultations are holistic and use Dr Libby’s three-pillar approach by addressing your health concerns biochemically, nutritionally and emotionally.

We consider what you eat and you how you move, but we also look at a wide variety of other body processes including your hormones, liver, adrenals, digestive system and thyroid function. We assess how these systems may relate to the health challenges you are experiencing. We also explore any emotions and beliefs around your health concerns if we believe this may be of benefit to you.

Dr Libby is the “why” girl of nutrition and Jenny Brooks is fully trained in the Dr Libby method as well as being highly experienced in nutrition and herbal medicine.

Consultations are in person at our Auckland office. For those of you who live outside of Auckland, consultations are available via phone or on Skype. Please note Dr Libby is currently unavailable for consultations.

What to expect from your first appointment

In an initial consultation we’ll spend time with you going over current health concerns, past history and how to bring about the outcomes you are seeking. We’ll offer you individualised recommendations to help you achieve your goals and will explain to you exactly why you need to make the changes and how they will help you.

Sometimes we feel that herbal or nutritional medicine may be the most effective way to help solve your health challenges. We use only the highest-grade supplements and herbs available, all of which can be purchased from the clinic.

You will leave a consultation with a plan and specific guidelines for the coming weeks. This may include practical dietary changes, nutrient supplementation, herbs and/or some insights into thought patterns that may be impacting on your health.

Testimonials

What can I say except a huge ‘Thank you’ to Jenny and the Dr Libby team for helping guide me back to good health over the past 10 months.

I can honestly say that Jenny’s knowledge, compassion, understanding, support and guidance throughout the past 10 months has helped me to learn so much about my body, my mind and myself as a ‘whole’. The choices that I make each day in ‘all’ that I do has truly been life changing. I have lost a significant amount of weight, I have the energy to go to the gym and to go out and enjoy life again. I look in the mirror and love what I see, I can see me the fun loving person that I was and that I am. After 4 – 5 months of taking a herbal remedy I can honestly say ‘What menopause?’ No flushes, no bloating/ fluid retention and no getting up and down 10 times a night to the toilet.

I can’t recommend Jenny highly enough! You couldn’t ask for a better person to walk with you to better health.

ANON

Hi Jenny,

I thought I’d drop you a line to let you know some great news about my health.

The last two months I’ve had two 28 day cycles!!!! I’ve never had 28 day cycles in my life, ever! So that’s brilliant!

To make things even better, last month I experienced absolutely no hormonal chin acne whilst ovulating! Yay!!!!

I’ve started tracking my cycle using the Kindara iPhone app (this tracks temperature, cervical fluid, cervical location, etc) so that’s been really interesting.

So it seems that hormonally I’m really back on track.

Very happy with my results so far Jenny. Thanks for helping me with my hormones.

Irregular Periods & Hormonal Acne

I just wanted to write this testimonial for Jenny because she has completely changed my life! She is so amazing at what she does and I would highly recommend her to anyone!

I suffered from UTI’S (urinary tract infections) for my entire life before seeing Jenny I had seen numerous specialists,had every kind of test done and tried everything possible. I had been on antibiotics daily for ten years and I really wanted to stop taking them as they really suppressed my immune system.

Jenny was the only person who was able to help me. The advice Jenny gave me and herbs helped me to come off my antibiotics successfully. For the first time in ten years I have had no infections and I feel the best I have in as long as I can remember.

I cannot thank Jenny enough, she has completely changed my life! 

Thanks so much.

Ruth

Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections

WOW! where do I even begin to express my gratitude to Jenny and the Dr Libby team for all that they have done for me.

After an extremely frustrating couple of months and a number of blood tests trying to figure out why I was continuously so exhausted I met Jenny and was quickly reassured that I was suffering from adrenal fatigue or “burnout” and that it was treatable and I would come right with time rest and the correct treatment.

Fast forward 3 months and I can confidently say I have completely recovered, feel recharged and back to the old me.

As most traditional doctors don’t test for adrenal fatigue or even treat it I don’t know where I would be without Jenny. She was gentle honest and I felt completely comfortable with all her advice and direction. She knew exactly what I was going through and how she could help.

Thank you thank you thank you!

Adrenal Fatigue

Hi Jenny,

I just wanted to give you an update after our call and medications in June this year, since you may have wondered why I didn’t arrange a follow-up call. 

When we talked I had very serious liver hepatitis caused by a reaction to antibiotics which was steadily getting worse. 

I also have PCOS and endometriosis and had not been ovulating.

As soon as I started taking the supplements you provided my liver started rapidly improving. 

Within 2 weeks my tests were totally normal. The hospital specialist was baffled.

I had not been ovulating for approximately 2 years and had been told that due to my issues I would need clomid to ovulate, and then my partner had poor test results so we were told we would need IVF to conceive (with a 2 year waiting list or $15,000 a cycle).

Well, last month I found out that I am actually pregnant naturally, 2 days before we were seeing the specialist to join the IVF waiting list. 

Thank you so much for your help!

I am not sure where we would be without you and the supplements you gave me.

Kirsty

Liver and Fertility

I am feeling like a new woman thanks to your advice, supplements, and listening ear. I am amazed at how quickly I was feeling better, despite feeling so terrible for so long!

The fatigue is gone! Self-esteem has risen by being able to contribute as a wife, mother and friend. Thank you so much for helping me to get my life back, on every level!! xoxo
