"I was very depressed, sometimes suicidal. The anti-depressants kept me awake at night and I felt terrible at times. I could not leave home. Life was a daily struggle. At times I felt like giving up. Dr Arien took me off the anti-depressants slowly and put me on natural medication (Neuro Balance).
There was a dramatic improvement in my quality of life. I had a new desire to live, I could think more clearly, I could drive my car safely. I slept much better. I could go out, visit friends, go to church. I want to express my deep appreciation to Dr Arien for her kind help."
Johan Barnard
"My hot flushes that I was having literally every 20 minutes disappeared almost immediately after I started using the Female Balance. I would highly recommend it!"
Jayne de Jager
"Dr Arien helped me improve my thyroid function. When I started with her treatment and at the Weight Control Clinic I was on Thyroid medication that I have been using for many years. Now I only use the natural medicine and my thyroid function is back to normal for the first time in many years. Thank you very much Dr Arien & Anri!"
Eunice Oechler
"I just want to say thank you so much. Since I started using all your natural medicine products (Heart Brain Body Support & Antioxidant, Omega, Calcium & Magnesium, Female Balance & Appetrol), I feel ten tons better than before and my nails aren’t breaking anymore. My most sincere appreciation."

The term ‘holistic’ (from the root word ‘whole’) health describes therapies that consider the individual as a whole person (mind, body, soul) or rather part of a more extensive system. Therefore, instead of treating only the symptoms of an illness or disease (as in mainstream medicine), we look at the root cause of the physiological imbalance before recommending specific treatments and health coaching protocols.

"I lost 8 kg in 9 weeks! What made this weight/fat loss program different, is that I never felt hungry or deprived! I was still able to enjoy food at restaurant with my family. I am a chocoholic so I was really surprised that I was able to eat NO chocolates during this time. Thank you, Anri, for your positive attitude and support during this very fulfilling journey. This program has changed my life, the way I think about food and health! I THINK about what I eat now."
Tertia Botha
"My experience with the Weight Control Clinic & Team Ariani has been nothing short of phenomenal. The advice, help and constant support from Anri has been amazing, and her willingness to offer advice about exercises, alternate food options and emotional/stress eating is exceptional.

Dr Arien is likewise wonderful, as her attention to detail on the medical front has allowed me to approach the program with confidence and the assurance that all that could be done for my benefit was being done.
The program has changed my life for the better, and I walk confidently to the rest of the year knowing that Team Ariani is there for me every step of the way."
"My fitness level has improved so much (and my arms are half the size it was) and I do not gulp for air anymore when I dance. Thank you so much Dr Arien, and Anri! A dictionary does not have enough words to describe how grateful I am for your help and support."
"It has been such a wonderful experience and opportunity to have been doing this training on holistic health with Dr Arien & Anri. I would like to use this opportunity, to say thank you for your guidance and patience with me. I have learned so much in a short period of time and it only fuelled my passion to assist clients to take more responsibility for their own health. I would like to become a distributor of Ariani products as I, with my practical training experience, have seen firsthand that there is a huge gap and lack in proper health education and products available which really address the root health problems, in the market "
Lazanne Kruger
Although on the surface I’ve transformed my body (after following The Weight Control Clinic Program, I released 22.7kg), I want to continue to learn and transform the thoughts, beliefs and patterns within me that is not serving my highest potential. The Transform Membership is an excellent platform to continue learning and get challenged to grow. I enjoy the support and guidance on this journey with the freedom of doing it at my own pace.
Isabel Botha
"I love, love, love your food! I am absolutely crazy about your ‘Mince Filled Tomatoes’ and your ‘Beef Patties’ are phenomenal! The ‘Bacon and Cheese Quiche’ is super delicious and is my ultimate favourite. These are definitely my top 3 so far!"
