A holistic approach to tackling health issues means we take into consideration all aspects of a persons health. We try to understand the root cause of the current health issues not just looking at the symptoms themselves and treating the symptoms only. We look at the person as a whole and consider the bigger picture of what is going on below the surface. The symptoms we experience is like the body talking to us and expressing a deeper imbalance. The body is giving us clues as to what is going on, instead of masking these symptoms with medications we try to understand where and why they are occurring. We are holistic beings, what effects us physically can effect us mentally & emotionally just as anything mentally and emotionally can effect us physically. So it makes sense that we should look at our health care in a holistic way also.
In the Bia Beo practice we take a naturopathic and holistic approach with our treatment plans. This means we use a combination of Nutritional Therapy, Herbal Medicine and lifestyle changes to achieve lasting results. Each client is taken as an individual and a treatment plan is tailor made to suit each and every clients needs. There is a focus on tackling any health issue from all angles, its important to feed and nourish ourselves on all levels. Everything we put in and on our body, everything we are exposed to physically, emotionally and mentally; these are all the ways we can feed and nourish our entire being. When we give our body and mind everything it needs we are supporting our bodies own natural healing abilities.
The initial consultation is a 90min in depth one on one meeting. The first half of this meeting is for you to tell your story and go into detail about the issues you have been facing. We will gather all this vital information and ask all the relevant questions to build a full picture of what is going on and how best to proceed in your particular case. The second half of our meeting will focus on the recommended treatment plan for your needs. We will spend time discussing our plan of action and how we can best implement it to suit you. You will be given detailed instructions on dietary and lifestyle changes along with all the guidance and support to be able to achieve your goals. You will receive recipes and meal ideas, and also extra information to help you better understand why you may have been suffering with your current symptoms. Personalised herbal remedies will also be included in your treatment plan to help support the healing process. Herbal remedies are a wonderful component of our treatment plans, they are a gentle and effective way of accelerating healing and bringing balance to all systems in the body, and can be pivotal to the healing process. You will also be guided on recommended supplements that may be beneficial for your specific needs. Follow up appointments are recommended periodically depending on the level of support you need. After the initial consultation it is recommended to have a follow up appointment 3-4 weeks later to have a full review and make sure we are on the right track with everything. Follow up appointments are a shorter time of 60min.

“I am so happy with the results achieved following Rachael’s recommendations and remedies! She helped me get over 5 years of severe digestion issues in about 6 months following her treatment and guidance after trying multiple conventional treatments without success over the years.
I really enjoy our consultations, she’s very diligent and kind, couldn’t recommend more :)”

“I have been seeing Rachael for several months now and it simply changed my life! I went primarily to her because of skin issues- rosacea on my cheeks- and digestion problems. But answering her very thorough questionnaire and questioning my lifestyle, I realized I needed much more help than I thought. She helped me see how much changing my habits and food I eat have an impact on my skin, my digestion but also my moods, my energy and my mindset… After a few months, I feel like a new person with new energy and less sadness in me… and a much better skin! She taught me so many things I want to keep learning about. She really takes her time with you and makes you feel like you are her only patient. I can only recommend her: she’s supportive and knowledgeable. It feels good after the dermatologists and other practitioners I saw who didn’t help at all.”
– Julie Thouément
My experience has been top notch – highly recommend the best gut-healing practitioner in Ireland!
“Rachael is awesome. She puts in the effort to understand the issues you’re
experiencing and comes up with very doable changes. She was super fast in getting back to me with the results of my food intolerance testing, plus offering complete info on alternatives, so I won’t feel overwhelmed.
I highly recommend her!”
– Mika von Miau
“Racheal is a very professional and knowledgeable nutritionist and herbalist.
She really cares about her client and wants to help.
She keeps in touch with me regulary ensuring that I’m happy with my progress.
She is still adding to her qualifications and attending new courses which is great.
I can’t recommend Rachael and Bia Beo more !”

“Having suffered extreme fatigue for the last 4 years I was at the end of my tether when a friend recommended Rachael. I had spend thousands on consultants, scans, scopes, you name it I’d done it. That was last October. Roll on 6 months and I’m a new woman. Rachael identified an intolerance to dairy and eggs, who would have thought it. With Rachaels help, kindness, advice, recipes and herbal remedies to help my gut I embarked on a new way of eating. I do not feel deprived at all, in fact it’s opened up a whole new range of foods to me that I had never tried before. There was no judgement and she made me feel like I was her only patient!!! Thank you Rachael, how lucky was I to find you??”
– Liz Barry
“Rachael was very approachable, professional and caring. I had dermatitis skin issues on my hands for a very long time. After several visits to doctors and dermatologists and without any positive results using creams I contacted Rachael. Food intolerant test showed up egg and dairy, which I avoided during the time I took herbal remedy, that was blended specifically for my health issues. Today I am totally free from dermatitis, haven’t had it since then, and it’s the best ever! I’m back eating both dairy and eggs without any issues. I was recommended to take flaxseed oil daily which I do (most days) and my skin is remarkable, my face is glowing. Apart from getting rid of my skin issues, the herbal remedy made me feel especially great. Anyone should treat themselves by looking after their health. A little comes a long way. I would definitely go back to Bia Beo with any health issues or concerns.”
– Sofie Gustafsson
“I can highly recommend Bia Beo to anyone who is willing to heal or simply just wish to adapt to a healthier way of eating. Two years ago after being on strong antibiotics and steroids, I started developing all sorts of allergies and skin irritations, which has driven me absolutely mad as I never would have experienced anything like that in my life. Rachael’s support, her skills and extensive knowledge of herbs has been undoubtedly superb. With her help I gradually reverted back to normal and shook off all the problems I was experiencing. Ever since then, I’ve kept up my new way of eating and also drinking Rachael’s herbal teas which are truly lovely. All I can say is that anyone who decides to reach for herbal therapy, like pretty much with everything in life, must go into it with a positive, open and determined mind to achieve success. Small changes here and there in the beginning then you’re laughing. Trust me, I’ve gone through it and if I had to do it again, I wouldn’t hesitate.”
“I’ve been coming to Rachael for a several months by now and I couldn’t recommend her services more. She is unbelievably professional and efficient. Rachael takes her time to assess you as an individual. She understands that ‘the same rules’ do not apply to everyone and creates an individual programme accordingly to your current needs. My lifestyle tends to be hectic and including the herbal medicine from Racheal is now a part of my everyday life. I feel more energized and have less cravings (for example my cravings for processed sugar disappeared completely).”

“I cannot recommend Bia Beo and Rachael highly enough. She is welcoming, professional and her knowledge is endless. Initially I contacted her for a nutritional consultation, being vegan I wanted to ensure I was getting the correct balance of nutrition in my diet. I found her approach very thorough and detailed and she also highlighted so many things to look out for and extras that would be beneficial for me to include. Since my consultation I feel much more confident in my diet and feel much healthier overall. I have also tried a personalised herbal remedy and tea blends which I found excellent. I would recommend Rachael to anyone without hesitation, I’m certain they would benefit from her expertise.”
