I came to see Doctor Stephen Ferguson after being introduced by my close friend. She was concerned I felt low with my health problems for a few months now. I have several different problems on the go, sometimes, I feel so fed up and helpless. Every year I make it my goal to lose weight, but I find it so difficult and if I lose some, it comes back after a few weeks. I was such an active person before, but I have slowed down a lot because of the pain in my knees due to arthritis. I have high blood pressure, I need to watch out and rest especially when my headaches become bad and have dizzy spells. I take regular painkillers and medication which sometimes gives me heartburn. I am also experiencing hot flushes which make it uncomfortable for me especially during the nights and at times during the day. All these are making me depressed. I try and cope as best as I can and my best friend gives me a listening ear. I tend to have more bad days than good days, I really feel low during winter because my knees are so painful and at times swollen and tender. I am so grateful to my friend, with her encouragement; I booked an appointment to see Doctor Stephen Ferguson at the Natural Health Clinic. My friend came along with me for moral support.
I felt comfortable with Doctor Ferguson who made my friend and I laugh. He has a good sense of humour and I felt at ease to be able to talk to him and tell him of my health problems and how I have been feeling depressed.
He did a full body MOT and also an interesting test on me, a live blood test. Doctor Ferguson took the time to explain what it was about and spoke encouragingly that I will see a difference when I come back for my check-up. He also put me on an eight week plan health programme. It consisted of a strict diet, eating plan, health drinks, a blood cleanser and also a regular exercise routine.
Within a matter of weeks, I felt like a different person. My knee pain went away. I did not need to take my pain killers by the third week. My hot flushes were reduced dramatically and my bad headaches have stopped. I was able to sleep well and comfortably during the night. I get up feeling so much refreshed and lighter. The biggest bonus for me is that I lost weight. It has not crept up since I have been keeping to the health programme. My blood pressure has come down too! I am so thankful with the big change in my life now. Thank you Doctor Ferguson!
