Anke's third child was born with a severe brain injury and this affected both his brain and his body. After a few months, he was diagnosed with severe spastic quadruplegia and there was no cure for this, but Anke wanted to help him improve his brain function so she studied many modalities to help him reach his optimum potential.
She is now a Specialist Naturopath, Nutritionist, Biochemist, Herbalist, Homoeopath, Professional (Educational) Kinesiologist, Bio-medical and Nutrition Medicine Practitioner. Anke is also a fully registered Teacher in SA, Professional Trainer and Master Practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). She holds a Masters Degree in Nutrition Medicine and in Biochemistry.
Anke now specialises in gut related chronic diseases that affect men, women, babies and children. She has 30 years experience in working with adults and children to improve health, (neuro) development, learning, behaviour and well-being. As the nature of the chronic disease or condition is different in these groups, you can click on the following links to go directly to the appropriate page on this website:
* Men's health
* Women's health
* Children's health
She has co-written an international best seller: "Elevate Your Health", which is available from most book stores. Her chapter is titled: "Gut Revelations". You can purchase the ebook and the hard copy by clicking on the following link:
