SOLO SUPPORT SUCCESS STORIES
As a long-term sufferer of a deadly Eating Disorder, one that almost took my life back in 2010, I have certainly had my fair share of psychological and dietetic input from many professionals over the years.
I found their input helpful, and am grateful they helped to save my life in many different ways. However it came to a point where I felt like my progress was just plateauing, and things weren’t really progressing to where I would have hoped. During in this time, I decided to take control, and try alternative options. Little did I know that the day I had my first session with Casey, would my life truly change for the better.
I have been seeing Casey for just over 2 years now, and can say my life has seriously changed in so many ways thanks to her amazing work. Casey has such a deep level of compassion and understanding, and applies an integrative and intuitive approach to all her work with clients. From this, I have gained exceptional knowledge around nutrition, and have adapted new coping strategies in dealing with emotions and my thoughts around food, and body image. That said, I cannot recommend Casey enough, and cannot put into words how grateful I am for her constant support and work with me during my journey of recovery. I certainly would not be where I am today without her amazing work and encouragement.
VETERINARIAN AND MOTHER
I sought Casey's nutritional expertise both when I was trying to conceive, and while pregnant.
Her advice was invaluable and helped me to feel the best I possibly could when my body was going through many challenging changes. Her recipes are loved by the whole family. I would recommend her to anybody trying to make smarter food choices and wanting to feel the best they possibly could!
ARTIST AND MOTHER OF 3
n a nutshell, Casey Conroy has literally changed my life.
From my first meeting as a student in one of her dynamic yoga classes, I felt empowered and inspired by her tremendous positive energy and smiling zest for life. She simply glows with good health and loving vibes generated from her incredibly warm, generous spirit.
As I've come to know her better I realise she's a delicious combination of sweet, sunny pixie and intelligent, savvy woman!
After many enjoyable yoga classes, I attended one of Casey's free healthy cooking demonstrations at a Gold Coast library. I then became aware of her tremendous passion and amazing depth of knowledge, especially in all things food related. The audience was made up of people from all walks of life and varying degrees of health, questions were being thrown at her about all sorts of issues, and she had a clear, practical answer for them all.
She has a way of cutting through the confusion around food and eating that I find priceless. Her common-sense approach to nutrition and good health came as a refreshing, uncomplicated truth that spoke to me on many levels. I found myself nodding and thinking "Yesss that makes complete sense!" Her words really touched my core and I knew immediately I wanted to become one of her clients.
At the time, I was going through some big life changes. My usual good health had been affected…basically I felt like crap, which was unfamiliar and unwelcome territory. To add to my worries finances were tight, but I sensed that seeing Casey for Dietetics was the best place to start my health reboot and would be well worth the investment. After years of looking after others I loved being able to put myself into her expert hands.
Her caring response to my first email brought actual tears of relief…I felt so supported. From my first session (more tears!) a light went on inside me that continues to grow brighter everyday.
12 months on and I feel energised, empowered and much much wiser! Embracing Casey's Intuitive and Mindful Eating practices, plus experimenting with her delicious recipes has been very enlightening. I love the simplicity of it all! Compelled to learn more I recently completed Casey's Advanced Nutrition Training course that has expanded my knowledge to another level.
Proving you can continue to learn and improve things in your life at any time. The course is a fabulous combination of mind-blowing theory sessions and delicious hands-on workshops in preparing super nutritious meals. The food we ate was divine!
It's been an exciting journey and I've thoroughly enjoyed every step of the process, embracing Casey's wisdom with gusto. I'm quite chuffed to say that lately friends and family are commenting on how well I look, and I reply with complete honesty that I feel wonderful!
And finally, Casey is a complete professional. Don't let her impish grin and girlish exterior delude you…this amazing young woman knows her stuff! She guides you without judgment using all the strings in her bow collected from many years of experience, an interesting well-travelled life and a thirst for knowledge.
I think everyone deserves a touch of Casey sunshine in their life!
No more headaches, sinuses cleared
Since our nutrition consult I have stayed on track and experienced the benefits (body/mind) from your nutritional advice. Pulling apart dairies has deleted 100% my sinus problems (including the horrendous headaches).
Migrating into the alkaline area of the handy chart that you gave me, has improved our life (Mireya & I) in a mental and physical way. I feel lighter and with more energy at the same time. My digestion process has improved as well. I love my green-smoothies every morning. Banana + spinach + lime + chia seeds + H2O it’s my favorite.
We (me and my partner) has discovered a wonderful, healthy and delicious new world that was in front of our eyes but we needed another person to show us that path. That beautiful soul was U!!.
I’ve recommended my friends to have a chat with you and few of them have done it. Ruben is tripping!, he has lost 8 kgs with your nutritional advice.

JORDYN DE BOER, ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENTIST
Every class/workshop I've attended with Casey has been engaging and inspiring... delicious edible creations, wonderful energy and a wealth of vital information. Love your work!
JESSICA HALL, NATUROPATHY STUDENT
Wow! Where do I start with Casey.. She is the most amazing health Guru, knowing all when it comes to how and what to nourish your body with. I have been to many of Funky Forests events.
If you have the opportunity to meet Casey, you will soon realise that she instantly brings life into the room! Thankyou Casey for all your amazing advice, you truly are a beautiful person inside and out and have changed my views on life and food for the better!
The first time I saw Casey at one of her Yoga classes I thought: "wow her energy and being is amazing, I want to know how she does it and feel and be like her!" I started to follow her.
A year later I got sick and I had an overseas 'Skype' consultation with her (from NZ to Italy) and just being in contact with her energy and her smile made me feel so much better. What she gives you is a simple but deep way to change your life in a positive way. The beautiful thing about Casey is that she really 'walks her talk'. She is an amazing being. Thank you :-)
COUNSELOR, LIFE COACH + SPIRITUAL TEACHER
Casey is a dear friend, a soulful teacher and an inspirational business-woman. Thanks to her caring nature and genuine desire to help she has nurtured me through many life/health/physical challenges that have cropped up for me over the years and I consider myself to be incredibly grateful to have her in my life.
Whenever I have needed her expert guidance, she has made space for me in her busy schedule to ensure that I get the attention that I deserve. She offers practical, nurturing advice that isn't at all daunting and is always easy to implement.
I love Casey with all my heart and can honestly say that she has changed my life for the better!
PIRI BENNETT, ENTREPRENEUR
Casey! I am seriously all over this. Went to Flannery's in the weekend and got all the ingredients for the smoothies. I've got rid of the breads and milk, and been feeding off the veggie and fruits ever since. Eating like that chimp!
This is probably the best i've felt in a long time, unreal. Thanks for the all the info too, want to keep adding more goodness into the body.
I'm a new man Casey! Thanks!
SHARON CHAPMAN, HEALER
Casey provided personalised nutritional guidance for me when I was transitioning into a new career and a new relationship. The demands of my new role along with opening my life to a man (something I had resisited for quite some time) adjusted the balance in my physical body.
Casey was able to assist me in 'tuning in' to my body's needs. With proper food combining, intuitive eating and rediscovering the positive effects of moving my body, my energy and wellbeing has returned. I recommend her highly!
ALICIA RYAN, YOGA TEACHER & MOTHER
Casey your vision together with your knowledge, experience and passion are an inspiration to me. After having a consultation with you I put into place all the advice you gave me and have never felt so alive! Thank you for the information on your site it keeps me motivated. Look forward to practicing yoga with you soon xo
I would like to say after following help and advise from Casey I have reduced my cholesterol count and medication. I feel more alive eating fresh and whole foods. Casey is such a knowledgeable person you can’t go wrong if you follow her way of eating.
Support & encouragement
I have always tried to be kind to my body from organic foods to yoga/meditation but having had some one on one sessions with Casey regarding diet and then a yoga session at her home has really helped and improved my lifestyle.
While working with her I was so supported with her encouragement and her knowledge was amazing.I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone that would benefit from her skills and dedication as I believe she is the best in the business.
- Aileen Halter, Gold Coast
I had digestion problems for many years until I met casey and just in one consultation she was able to give me guidance on my diet that no other naturopath was ever able to give me and it helped my digestion. I was astounded by her wisdom and compassion and knew that I wanted her to be a part of my business.
Diet was very important part of my healing process and when I met casey she was teaching everything that I had learned myself to come to know as leading-edge nutritional information. Casey knows how to heal with whole foods. She knows how to help you to tune into your own body so that you never have to diet again.
Casey helped my husband and I get back on track after years of eating unhealthy foods. In a one-on-one cooking class I was given a heap of great recipes that have become a staple in my home. Casey is so down to earth and is very helpful and I look forward to learning more in 2014!

IBS & allergies subsided
For most of my life I have suffered, on and off, from different allergies. Some years ago I learned that I was sensitive to dairy so I avoided all dairy products.
Then, in 2010, I was advised by a nutritionist that I was also fractose and fructose intolerent and was advised to eliminate more foods from my diet. With this added restriction I began to lose weight. However, I still suffered.
Then, recently, I read an article about Casey in a local newspaper and decided to contact her. I have now been following her plan for about 2 months and the pains and discomfort, coupled with disrupted sleep have subsided. I have also re-introduced all the foods that I was told were detrimental to me. Furthermore, I was experiencing bad skin problems and now those problems have almost completely cleared.
This life-style is so different to what I'd been used to but the benefits are definitely rewarding. Thank you Casey, now I know I'm on the right track to a healthier future.

Workshops & Seminars
Dear Casey , Thank you so much for the awesome nutrition session last night I was more informed in 2hrs than what I have been in the last 10 years!
- Diane McNeill, Gold Coast, attended Integrative & Holistic Nutrition Workshop 2012
Casey, I absolutly loved your workshop tonight. Your passion and knowledge is outstanding!
- Laurinda Janlewicz, Integrative & Holistic Nutrition Workshop 2012
Good workshop today :) I think everyone got heaps out of it. I particularly liked the stuff about frequency's of the food which i haven't really thought that much about. You really seem to practice what you preach and that really translates to people and gets them interested and so they can take control of their own health.
- Andreas Kuhn, attended Natural Nutrition Seminar 2013
I had the pleasure of seeing the amazing Casey Conroy ‘live in action’ at a local Gold Coast City Council Library where she was hosting a Free Healthy Food Workshop.
All I could say was WOW, who is that little dynamo ? She has so much knowledge jam packed into such a young brain, and related to all levels and ages of people in the library. I was impressed ! I immediately booked in for the next workshop !
Since then, myself and my little boys have had the pleasure of crossing paths with Casey at various ‘healthy locations’ on the Gold Coast. We always learn something new and always come away feeling great after seeing Casey.
Love, Canice, Charles & Maxwell
