Alphie (London, UK) | PPIs for 18 Years
However, was temporary and seemed only to suppress the problem as over the last 18 years I’ve been on and off these tablets. I actually didn’t think much of it until I had an endoscopy and identified an H pylori infection and stomach ulcer! At this point I thought I’d be on this medication for life.
Then I came across Jack Walton and Dave Hompes and whilst not knowing what to expect I ran an initial enquiry and discussion with Jack. We ran a comprehensive digestive health test and the support program started – and that was when my life changed!
We reviewed all the information, thoroughly analysed the test results, discussed my objectives and put a plan together. I wanted to no longer be reliant on pills, but a major challenge with long term PPI usage is ‘rebound’ as you come off them.
Within 2 weeks of the coaching I saw changes. We implemented the plan, reviewed food diaries, took some foods out of my diet, and within 3 months our mission was complete. I was no longer taking any PPI medication (under Doctor’s supervision), my symptoms had alleviated without them and I had lost some excess weight.
Obviously, the journey was tough but with Jack’s help and expertise, I reversed 18 years of reliance on a pill, got my energy back and realised I’d forgotten what it felt like to feel normal. I genuinely feel fantastic within myself, sleep better, eat foods I couldn’t before and enjoy the little things in life which I had lost.
Jack’s method of explaining things, non-judgemental aura and general supportive manner made the 3 months a joy as I could see progress week in week out. Every aspect of what we spoke about into my life now and it has become a lifestyle change rather than a temporary fix. I now know my body better and this has helped me with other aspects of my life. It has been a truly life-changing experience. I would recommend anyone with symptoms or discomfort to not think twice.

Martin (North East, UK) | Chronic Brain Fog and Fatigue
It destroyed my family life.
Unable to see a future from a traditional medical route I approached Jack and following a detailed consultation I decided to undertake a 6 month programme of nutritional advice, tailored movement and bodywork sessions.
Improvements were significant; with my brain fog beginning to clear after the first Bowen session! By following the programme most of the symptoms I struggled with have completely disappeared or are significantly less noticeable.
All this, without any medication anymore. And I am now able to work again. Thank you Jack

Irina (Newcastle upon Tyne, UK) | Irina’s Integrated Hormonal Balance Connection
I was experiencing hormonal imbalances, low libido, irregular periods, feeling moody to the point when my family didn’t know what to do with me, pain during intercourse, poor concentration, low energy levels, feeling unsatiated from food, food intolerances, bones pain especially knees, unable to loose body fat, constant tummy pain and moving heavily!
So, I sat down with myself and as relaxed as I could, asked my intuition what else can I do? Who’s help can I ask for? What really do I need? And it led me to Jack. ?
Everything felt right. It finally felt like it was the right choice and one of the best choices I have made in my life. It was worth every penny. After few months of working 1 to 1 with Jack and following some ridiculously simple but very effective steps that he recommended, my symptoms started to fade away and I could see and feel day by day how my organs are gaining back their functionality. And how I am becoming stronger and stronger.
My family could see a significant improvement and I could finally have a better relationship with them and be my normal self. He has been such a good and patient guide and I am forever grateful, appreciating all his years of expertise. I took away precious information from him that I still apply today and know I will use it for the rest of my life.
I believe that the world needs more people like Jack that practice this approach. That know that the body is a system of systems and one needs to take it as a whole in order to make it functional. I am blessed to have worked with him!

Fiona (North-East, UK) | Unravelling Chronic Ear Infections and Gut Health
Admittedly, I was initially a little dubious. My symptoms were debilitating. I had spent time critically ill in hospital and there was a financial commitment for the programme. However, I was immediately impressed and put at ease by Jack’s enthusiastic, impartial approach from the first phone call. Plus his genuine willingness to share his knowledge and experience. Having undertaken the 6 month programme, I was able to gain access to enhanced testing, individualised nutritional advice in keeping with allergies and intolerances, supplement protocols, bodywork, as well as tailored exercise and movement sessions.
I could never have anticipated the impact this programme would have on all aspects of my life that had been affected by my health. I am astounded by the improvement of all symptoms and the complete eradication of many others. During this time Jack’s programme has supported me beginning a new career and enabled me to play sport again. As well as recover from symptoms relating to surgery. Following Jack’s guidance during this programme has been the driving force that has improved my quality of life far beyond my original expectations. It has allowed me to do things I had previously given up due to my health restrictions, such as eating out and going on holiday.
Jack’s approach has facilitated my continued improvement, even beyond the programme. I have the tools to further enhance my health, working well alongside continued NHS support.
I cannot thank him enough and would highly recommend him to anyone who wanted to improve their health, performance and ultimately, their quality of life.

Bob (New Jersey, USA) | Solving a Decade of Gastritis and Abdominal Pain
The key to my success to attain a healthy digestive system was only due to the personal guidance enabled me to reach my goals. Jack is an intelligent, competent, nonjudgmental, caring professional and after reviewing my health history he explained that all areas of the body and these symptoms are linked, and that he thought my vicious cycle could be reversed.
Based on lab test work and case review we followed a weekly strategy to optimize my nutrition, provide anti-microbial and liver support, improve digestion and balance hormones. The ultimate goal was to equip me with skills to create change and enable me to monitor progress. Goal met! Jack gave me the power to be confident about my health and all that he taught me is now part of my life.
I would like to thank Jack for walking me through this program for my gut health and for all the things that “popped up” during our time together. I sincerely appreciate his time, expertise, compassion, kindness, and care and plan on checking in with him in the future. I am most grateful for all Jack did for me.

One year ago, I had a dream opportunity to buy the business I was working in, but I was too weak and ill to be able to do that. Now, with your help and guidance and some hard work, I was able to trust my gut and jump when the opportunity came around again. I don’t know where I would be if I hadn’t found your program.
Let’s rewind. I had come across so much information on the internet, but couldn’t make sense or practical use of it. Your system laid it all out in such an organized, cohesive manner, that it made implementation easy and of course, having personal guidance made all the difference. I’m glad the initial program was for a few months as it gave me time to make sustainable changes, instead of just a passing protocol.
Now these methods are a part of my life, they are my foundation for health. You not only helped me to find health again, but gave me the power to be in control of my health again.
All the doctors I had worked with seemed to like to keep me in the dark and act as though only they could hold the keys to my health, but you shined the light on everything. I find it amusing that I had to get in touch with someone halfway across the world to help me…yay for modern technology! Because without it I would be stuck with the backwards way of “practicing medicine” in my rural area.
You have done more for me from thousands of miles away than any of the practitioners that I have seen in person. Jack, you were my rock. Thank you for getting me through this. For everything you have done for me and my health, I am truly, truly thankful.

Marcelino (Barcelona, Spain) | Acid Reflux, H pylori and Nutrition
At that moment I had visited every Doctor in my city, Barcelona and they just told me that I had some “genetic” tendency to have acid reflux and related problems. To me this was really lacking sense because I had never previously experienced the symptoms before.
It all started when I was racing cycling at a professional level. I was focused on the competitive weight loss goal and started to care less about my nutrition, severely restricting calorie intake.
This was a very bad decision and I started to get all kinds of illnesses that I’d never had before. When feeling so weak, the straw that seemed to break the camel’s back was some seafood poisoning traveling to Latin America. After that I never really recovered and the symptoms just increased.
Thankfully, on the coaching program I was taught about the importance of the food we put into our system, the nutrients, vitamins and minerals our body needs in order to repair. I also understood the ability to balance the nutrition alongside the exercise demands.
We made small changes every week. I started to cook my own food. My skills have improved and I enjoy cooking now. Jack was very supportive all the time and had a lot of patience with me, which I tremendously appreciate. Our relationship became like a coach-athlete, responding very fast to see the best change to keep achieving our goals.
Three weeks in and I had more energy. A surprised because it was the first time in years. I recovered my natural sleep cycle which I’d lost. From that point my wellbeing soared. I think this is the future of the medicine!

Claire (Leicestershire, UK) | A Decade of Doctors, Diets and Programs
My Doctors told me I was an anxious young women and to go on anti-depressants, which I didn’t, but did have to take sleeping pills. I was also previously diagnosed by an alternative practitioner with adrenal fatigue which seemed to make sense as all my symptoms seemed to point to that, I had to give up sugar and caffeine which was awful as I’ve always had a sweet tooth and as I was always fatigued, needed my caffeine fix.
I did this for nearly two years and being me did it completely, no cheating. I was also put on a regular eating plan of every 3 hours lots of greens, brown grains, nuts and lean meat and oily fish. I did all this but still was suffering from all my symptoms. And my gut was getting worse. Bloating, wind and pain in my chest. One day I thought I was having a heart attack!
I had given up with the Drs, who had basically washed their hands of me. Then I came across Jack through my mum who had who had been really ill and had had some amazing results. I felt reluctant at first having spent so much money in the past with no results, but deep down it felt right.
Jack did tests and found stuff going on in my gut which were never picked up before even though I’d had similar tests previously. Jack coached me nutritional approach that was so different to what I had called a healthy diet I had before. There were great strategies around sugar, caffeine and beyond that alleviated the fatigue, tummy aches and jitters!
I had a weekly meeting with Jack for 3 months to guide me through my ups and downs, tweak my diet plans, along with supplements and gut restoration steps. Alongside changing lifestyle and approach to exercise.
The progress was steady and gradual. I was soon feeling better than I’d felt in years. My stomach was not bloating, with less pain and no wind. At last this embarrassing problem was going, my energy levels were rising, anxiety reducing and I was sleeping much better.
I think that everybody should work with Jack. You cannot put a price on your health!.

So we embarked on a support program with Jack to do this and hopefully solve my chest pain, irregular bowel movements, low appetite, weight fluctuations, PMS and low body temperature.
Well, to cut a longer story short – On completing the program I felt the best I have ever felt. Not only did we improve and eliminate most symptoms, but a few months later I became pregnant and now have given birth to a healthy baby girl!. Thank you Jack

Jane (Texas, USA) | Helicobacter pylori and Acid Reflux
I worked with several practitioners, running various tests and applying steps like nutrition and supplementation. These all helped me make some general improvements, but then I started experiencing more Acid Reflux and one of my tests had identified an H pylori infection and yeast and fungal overgrowth.
That’s when my research brought me to the work that Jack Walton and Dave Hompes do. And most interestingly how the various health challenges and symptoms I was having could be linked in some way.
Part of my concern about H pylori was that it was contagious and how that could affect my family. So as part of the coaching support we ran tests to screen my husband, son, daughter and son-in-law. We live in Texas, so it was fantastic that we could access this type of functional lab testing via Jack.
My daughter’s test came back positive for H pylori and she had been ill for many years, since a child. So, whilst we both had quite different situations, symptoms and presentations, both my daughter, Meghan and I began working with Jack. There were some tricky adjustments to foods and some supplementation, but we worked hard to put everything in place.
The weekly support and coaching were an anchor that helped reassure us that we would be able to deal with this. I was quite alarmed at the beginning, but through conversation with Jack, was able to put my body’s health in a better perspective and deal with the findings as part of a larger goal. That lowered if not eliminated the stress of having the h. pylori and yeast and I gained confidence in dealing with and in trusting that I could influence my body’s health.
Given the situation I was expecting at least a year of treatment. Yet to our amazement after 3 months our retests showed both negative for H pylori and the yeast and fungal overgrowth and most of our symptoms were alleviated.
We are both very grateful for Jack’s help and it is with great appreciation that Meghan and I say ‘thank you Jack’.

Barbara (United Kingdom) | Success After Years of Painful Metabolic Disorder
For many years my health issues were getting more serious – Abdominal Distention, Non alcoholic fatty liver disease, GastroIntestinal disorders, Weight Gain, Low Energy, Sleep Disorders, Low Morale and Aching Muscles and Joints.
Having a Nursing and Medical background I have sought help and treatment from NHS, Naturopaths, Acupuncturist and Homeopaths over the years. Finally in 2012 I felt so poorly, exhausted and in a lot of discomfort so my GP and various NHS Consultants ran testing including blood tests, Gastroscopies and Colonoscopies.
I received several diagnoses (antral gastritis, Non Functioning Gall Bladder, Diverticula) and an “inconclusive” outcome. So I began working with Jack Walton and Dave Hompes to develop a way forward and focused mainly on nutrition and functional medicine for gut healing.
At last I am able to sleep naturally for first time in 7-8 years. Energy levels are very good and muscle tone and aching joints have subsided. Abdominal distention has minimised greatly too. Although there is some ongoing work to do on the NAFLD and non functioning gall bladder, I am now in my late 70’s but feel much younger and able to enjoy a more energetic lifestyle.

Ervin (North Carolina, USA) | Metabolic and Biochemical Assessment and Optimisation
I went to many doctors and I did many tests, but no one had any idea as to what might be going on. Jack’s program offered hope for me in the form of a pathway to help my body heal. The process of healing has been a lengthy one, but I feel significantly better now.
I feel a great deal of it has to do with Jack’s ability to guide the healing process, which is something that regular doctors simply were unable to do. The health care system, at least in the US, is not designed to work in such a way. I’m grateful that I was able to find and work with Jack.
There are many great things about Jack’s approach. First, his guidance is not based on guessing – it’s based on running assessments to achieve insight on metabolic function. The added benefit of this approach is that the assessments can be repeated after a certain time to gauge if there’s been progress. These tests are incredibly detailed, and, I believe, significantly more thorough than many of the tests I could do with my regular doctor.
Also, Jack is very knowledgeable about human biochemistry and how metabolism works. I always thought that I knew a good deal about human metabolism, but Jack’s knowledge of how it can be optimized, is probably well beyond that of many other experts. Jack is also very thorough and patient with his explanations and he can go into as much detail as one likes. After having worked with Jack, I wish that the family doctors that I’ve had throughout my life were as knowledgeable, thorough, and meticulous as he’s been.
