Doctor Stephen Ferguson- I am so glad all the suffering has come to an end

I suffered with swollen glands, pain and itchy skin for five years.  I went to see my GP who then referred me several times to the hospital for further tests but unfortunately they could not find what caused my problems.  I went back for more tests whenever I experienced pain but they still could not find anything!

A friend of mine recommended that I see Doctor Stephen Ferguson at the Natural Health Clinic in London.  I was getting exasperated with my condition and irritable because of my itchy skin.  Sometimes I am unable to get a good night’s sleep because the itch bothered me at night and get up feeling tired and generally unwell.

I booked an appointment to Doctor Stephen Ferguson at the Natural Health Clinic.  He did a full body MOT and a live blood test.  My blood test was not good at all.  The blood cells were very sluggish and there were particles that were congested the movement of my blood cells.

Doctor Stephen Ferguson immediately put me on a specific diet and provided some natural supplements to take with my food.  I was given a blood cleanser to take twice daily.  I also used a natural shower gel for cleansing my skin and a cream containing some vitamins to rub all over my skin twice daily too.  I also ate the foods that were recommended to me by Doctor Stephen Ferguson.  To get my circulation going again, he prescribed some gentle exercises to do at home.

After a week and a half into the programme, I saw improvement!  My itchy skin started to calm down and subside.  In the second week, the swelling in my glands subsided.  I was so pleased with my progress.  I continued with the programme faithfully for the entire eight weeks.  Wow!  It is amazing!  I feel like a new woman.  The swelling, itchy skin and pain are completely gone!

I am so grateful to Doctor Stephen Ferguson for his invaluable help in getting my health back!  I feel energised and sleep well at night.  My skin looks conditioned and healthy.  The marks on my skin over prolonged scratching have healed with minimal scarring.  The natural products I consumed over the eight week programme were fantastic.  It is amazing how I feel and look now!  Don’t leave it too for too long if you have a health problem, come as soon as you can to the Natural Health Clinic!

Doctor Stephen Ferguson- I had become so distressed with fibroids, I feel a lot better now

I came to see Doctor Stephen Ferguson at the Natural Health Clinic because I was feeling generally unwell.  I was overweight and five to six years ago; I had a myomectomy where my enlarged fibroids were surgically removed but they returned!  My cholesterol levels were very high too.

I booked a consultation with Doctor Stephen Ferguson and he did a full body MOT and a live blood test on me at the Natural Health Clinic.  I told him that I would like to lose weight, concerned about my recurring fibroids and high cholesterol.  I needed some help in improving my overall health, preferably the natural way.

Doctor Stephen Ferguson put me on an eight week health programme.  I was provided with a diet and exercise plan to incorporate in my daily life.  I was given some natural products to complement my diet such as a green natural pH blood cleanser in powder form, some health drinks and other natural vitamins.  I was prescribed an exercise routine to do twice daily at home.  I changed some of the foods I ate on a regular basis to one that was recommended by Doctor Stephen Ferguson.

Two weeks into the programme, I felt more energy in my body and in the fourth week, I felt lighter, and revitalised.  It was an overall good feeling.  I went back for my check-up and was glad to hear that my cholesterol levels were reducing and I had lost a stone and a half in weight.  I was very pleased about the results.  By the end of the eight week health programme, I also found out that my fibroids had shrunk rather than continued growing.  I was over the moon to receive this news because I was dreading to go back for another myomectomy!  I lost another stone and a half and my cholesterol levels went right down to normal levels too.

I am so pleased with my overall improvement in health and would recommend Doctor Stephen Ferguson to anyone out there who prefers to be treated the natural way to a healthier lifestyle.  I also recommend him to my friends and family too.

Doctor Stephen Ferguson- Research on Fibroids and uterine Fibroids

Research on Fibroids and Uterine Fibroids




Introduction: What are fibroids and uterine fibroids?


Fibroids are growths or tumours that can occur in any organ of the body.  The term ‘fibroma’ is also used to describe a fibroid tumour which usually does not need to be removed from the body unless they are harmful or cancerous.  Fibroids are made up of fibrous or connective tissue that can be hard or soft, non-cancerous or cancerous and may potentially appear on the skin (sometimes called skin tags), in the body such as the lungs, spinal column and womb (uterus).

Uterine Fibroids

Fibroids are given specific names by the location of where the growth appears in the body.  A growth that originates from the smooth muscle layer of a woman’s uterus is called ‘uterine fibroid’ and is usually non-cancerous.  It is common amongst women of middle and later reproductive years.  The term ‘uterine leiomyoma’, ‘myoma’, ‘fibromyoma’ and fibroleiomyoma all describe non-cancerous or benign tumours found in the uterus or womb. In very rare cases, a cancerous growth or malignant tumour called ‘aleiomyosarcoma’ may potentially appear in the uterus.

Fibroids that appear in the uterus vary in size and usually multiple.  Some are similar in size of a pea which you may not know are there or grow in size of a small melon and cause heaviness and swelling in the pelvis, discomfort and pain.  Uterine fibroids can grow and increase in size but they can also decrease in size or go away in time.  They can be felt in the lower abdomen or pelvis when they are large enough to cause symptoms.  Uterine fibroids that grow can potentially cause painful and heavy periods, back pain, a woman may experience discomfort and pain during sexual intercourse, frequent and urgent need to urinate and constipation.  In extremely rare cases, fibroids may cause infertility and during pregnancy.

Types of uterine fibroids

There are four types of common fibroids that can occur within the womb.  They are:

  • Intramural fibroids

These fibroids grow within the muscle tissue in the wall of the uterus (womb) and are the most common place for fibroids to occur.  When these fibroids increase in size, it tends to make the uterus feel larger than normal and can mistaken for weight gain or pregnancy.  It can cause prolonged and excessive menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain and the passing of blood clots.  The additional pressure placed on the surrounding organs by the enlarged growth may potentially cause urgent and frequent urination.

  • Subserous (subserosal) fibroids

These fibroids grow from the outside of the wall of the uterus and into the pelvis and can grow in size.  The growth can put excess pressure on the surrounding organs and cause pelvic pain and pressure rather than causing heavy and excessive bleeding during menstruation.

  • Submucous (submucosal) fibroids

These fibroids grow from the inner wall into the middle cavity of the uterus and are the least common of the various types of uterine fibroids.  As the growth enlarges in size, it can potentially block the fallopian tubes which can cause complications with fertility.  Submucosal fibroids can include excessive menstrual bleeding and prolonged menstruation.  It can also cause the passing of blood clots, which left untreated can cause problems such as anaemia (iron deficiency) and fatigue.

  • Pedunculated fibroids

These fibroids grow from the outside wall of the uterus and are attached to it by a narrow stalk.  It can also grow from the inside wall of the uterus.  Pain and pressure can be felt when the stalks twist.

A woman may have one or all of the fibroids mentioned above.  It is common for a woman to have multiple fibroid growths and it may be difficult to know which fibroid type is causing the symptoms.

Why do uterine fibroids develop?

Although many researchers have been done in the past, the precise causes of uterine fibroids are unknown.  It is also unknown what causes it to grow and shrink but it is known to shrink once a woman reaches menopause.

It is also is known that uterine fibroids are maintained and managed by the production of oestrogen and progesterone levels in the body.  Uterine fibroids grow rapidly when the oestrogen hormone levels are high in the body.  Oestrogen is the female reproductive hormone that are produced by the ovaries in the reproductive organs.

What the symptoms of fibroids?

Most women may not display any symptoms at all and may probably be unaware they have uterine fibroids.  However, some women may feel swelling, tenderness and pain around the pelvis area.  Women who have uterine fibroids may experience the following symptoms:

Heavy menstrual bleeding

  • A woman may experience a sudden gush of blood or flooding.
  • Prolonged menstruation which disrupts the regular menstrual cycle. Periods may be ten days compared to four to five days previously.
  • A woman may experience large blood clots passing through her vagina, probably the size of a 50 pence coin or possibly more.

The symptoms above can be distressing when experienced during menstruation.  It restricts daily activities and work.  Tiredness and discomfort are often experienced during this time.


  • Iron deficiency
  • Fatigue
  • Lack of concentration
  • Dizziness
  • General weakness in the body

Excessive bleeding during menstruation may potentially lead to anaemia.  It is a condition that depletes the mineral iron required to maintain a healthy level of red blood cells in the body.  Iron is required to produce red blood cells which help store and carry oxygen in the blood.  Reduced red blood cells in the body will provide insufficient oxygen required by the organs and tissues in the body and may lead to fatigue, dizziness, lack of concentration and general weakness.


  • Pain and cramps experienced in the lower abdomen and pelvis area during menstruation
  • Passing of large blood clots through the vagina during menstruation
  • Lower back pain

Large blood clots can cause severe pain and cramps.  Large fibroids that press against the lower back or lumber and sacral nerve may lead to chronic pelvic pain.

Pressure related on nearby organs in the body

Large sized fibroids may potentially apply pressure on the nerve and blood vessels which can lead to a dull ache and varicose veins.  Pressure from large subserosal fibroids can potentially lead to the following symptoms:

  • Increased frequency to urinate.
  • Urgent need to urinate but only small amounts are passed out.
  • Leaking and dribbling of urine.
  • Occasional cystitis occurs when the urine is trapped and later becomes infected.
  • Constipation and haemorrhoids caused by pressure on the rectum.
  • In severe cases, difficulty to pass urine may require a catheter to be inserted into the bladder to urinate.

Painful and discomfort during sexual intercourse

A woman may experience discomfort and painful sexual intercourse when the uterine fibroids press against the cervix or they may hang through the cervix into the vagina.  Bleeding may also be experienced.


Who is at risk of uterine fibroids and are they common?

There are no confirmed risk factors; however it is known that fibroids are common in women that are of child-bearing.  It is also common in women in their thirties and increasingly progresses into the menopause phase.

The risk of uterine fibroids is increased:

  • With increasing age, it is common to develop uterine fibroids in women.
  • Develop in women from age 30 to 50.
  • Can run in the family line of females.
  • Women who have had children have a lower risk of developing uterine fibroids. The risk decreases further with more children.
  • The risk of uterine fibroids increases in women who experienced early puberty and it decreases in women who experienced late puberty.
  • Weight gain and obesity. Women with a higher proportion of body fat who weigh over 11 stones (70 kg) are thought to be the probable cause in higher levels of oestrogen in overweight women.
  • Uterine fibroids are two to three times more common in Afro-Caribbean women and tend to be larger and numerous and usually benign.
  • The risk of uterine fibroids are likely unaffected by hormonal methods of contraception. Research has shown the effect of hormonal methods of contraception and the risk of uterine fibroids are conflicting and the effect is considered inconclusive by experts.


Doctor Stephen Ferguson- I still can’t believe that my well being doesn’t have to depend on pain killers

I suffered with severe rheumatoid arthritis for 16 years.  I was miserable with constant pain and stiffness, anaemia, heart palpitations and fell ill for a couple of weeks every month.  My family was very worried for me.  I constantly went in and out of the GP and hospital.  Over the years my painkillers were increased and the strength increased too.  In a matter of two to three weeks, I would have consumed 30 strong pain killers.  It also gave me some side effects, nausea, extreme fatigue, heart palpitations and constipation.  I really became so low and slept most of the time because I did not have energy and the pain and stiffness really got me down.  Thankfully my close friends were very understanding.  Sometimes I had to cancel at the last minute for any planned social engagements with them.  They always saw me as an ill person because I was ill most of the time!

My brother heard about Doctor Stephen Ferguson and how he treated a friend of his and she swears by his treatment!  I got a call from my brother who booked and paid for my consultation with Doctor Stephen Ferguson at the Natural Health Clinic.  I am ever so grateful to both my brother and Doctor Stephen Ferguson.  My life has totally changed and I feel like a new person.

I was given a live blood test and a full body MOT.  I was prescribed some natural supplements, a blood cleanser, health drinks, diet plan and an exercise routine.  I stuck with the plan and it put me right back to how I should feel with a healthy body!  It is amazing, I have not felt unwell in the last two months, I got rid of my medication that was killing my insides and did not have to take the strong pain killers.  This has been the longest time that I have not been ill or inflicted with pain and stiffness.  I just faithfully stuck to the natural health programme and got my body back.  I sometimes have tears in my eyes recalling all those wasted years of suffering and I am so grateful to Doctor Stephen Ferguson for saving my life.  I appreciate my health and wellbeing more so than I have ever done in my entire life.

Doctor Stephen Ferguson is amazing, totally recommended by me and if there are those who suffer the way I did, please go and see him.



Doctor Stephen Ferguson- I once lost sensations in my body, but all normal now

A couple of months back; I had a very scary experience.  I got up one morning and thought, this is strange, I can’t seem to feel my body.  I could not feel the movements in my back, chest and my stomach muscles, my right foot was numb and I could not feel my toes.  I thought I was experiencing just a normal pins and needles sensation that causes numbness for a short while.  I waited for a little while but it was just the same. I took the day off work and my wife took me to the GP.  He could not find a cause and referred me straight to the hospital and after a couple of weeks of tests; nothing could be determined what caused this problem.

I heard about Doctor Stephen Ferguson on the radio.  I called him and booked an appointment to see him straight away.  He did a live blood test and massaged my body.  I took away some health supplements and a blood cleanser to clear my blood.  We did a couple of exercises to get the muscles in my body moving.  It was slow at first but eventually there was some movement.  He wrote down a couple of exercises I needed to do three times daily in short intervals.  I also took some natural protein drinks before and after two of the exercises.  I took some recommended foods to improve my strength.

After four weeks, I feel better now.  I can actually feel my back muscles moving.  I can actually feel the sensation in my chest, abdomen and legs.  I feel like my body has returned to me!  It was definitely a very scary and weird feeling to lose sensations in my body.  I am so thankful to Doctor Stephen Ferguson for saving my life!  I recommend anyone to see him with a health problem.




Doctor stephen Ferguson: Young boy miraculously cured of asthma

My son suffered with very bad asthma attacks.  It was so bad that I had to take him to hospital in the mornings because I really thought that he was going to stop breathing on me!  They would give him some nebulisers to calm his breathing down.  Two or three days later, a similar asthma attack comes back, this time at three o’clock in the morning.  I rushed him to hospital to get some help.  It was very frightening for my son and me.  At times I really thought that was it!  I am losing my son!  I looked around for some help and spoke to friends and family.  It was by chance I heard about Doctor Stephen Ferguson and his natural clinic.  I called and spoke to him about my son and brought him to the Natural Health Clinic in London.

My son was given some natural treatment and was given a natural ph balanced blood cleanser to take twice daily.  He prescribed some foods for my son to eat daily.  My wife and I removed all other foods that were not helping with my son’s condition.   I am overjoyed now!  My son has not had an asthma attack in the last two weeks after the consultation with Doctor Stephen Ferguson.  No early and late night visits to the hospital.  I can sleep well knowing my son is ok.

I took my son back to see Doctor Stephen Ferguson at the natural clinic.  He checked him and his blood test was so much better after nine weeks.  He looks healthier and brighter.  He is more active at home and actually goes out to play with his other brothers.  The natural blood cleanser worked so well.  I got one for myself before my visit to Africa.  Usually I fall ill or feel run down.  But this time it was different!  I was able to enjoy my entire trip without falling ill.  I felt good.

I have a lot of faith in Doctor Stephen Ferguson’s treatment.  Now I recommend Doctor Stephen Ferguson to anyone I meet who tells me they have a health problem!  My son is a healthy and happy boy and nothing can beat that feeling he is ok!






Doctor Stephen Ferguson: My skin is now better than before, I am so grateful!

I came to see Doctor Stephen Ferguson at the Natural Health Clinic because I suffered with high blood pressure.

I went to see my GP who prescribed blood pressure tablets to take daily but I experienced frequent dizziness and headaches.  I was also unhappy with the way my skin looked.  It was dry, patchy, itchy and oily in certain parts of my face. My skin tone was uneven. I would never go out of the house without applying foundation on my face!

At the Natural Health Clinic, Doctor Stephen Ferguson did a live blood test and a full body MOT for me.  My blood pressure was taken on that day and it was high.  My live blood results could be much better than what it was.  My blood cells were sluggish and weak.  I was put on an eight week health programme recommended by Doctor Stephen Ferguson.  I took supplements, a blood cleanser and other recommended products to supplement my health and diet.  I was also given a natural cream to apply on my face and body twice daily.  I used a natural shower gel as part of my cleansing routine on my face and body.  It made my face feel nice and comfortable.  It was not drying on my skin and it was not oily too.  So it was just right for me.  I changed some of the foods I was consuming on a regular basis and added what was prescribed in my diet plan.  I was given some exercises to do on a daily basis.  I followed the health plan for eight weeks.

In two weeks, I saw and felt a difference.  My skin improved tremendously.  It felt smooth and conditioned.  The patchy itchy feeling disappeared.   I returned for my checkup in four weeks, my blood pressure went down to normal and my blood results greatly improved.  I discontinued taking the blood pressure tablets and my headaches and dizziness disappeared too!

By the end of the programme, I felt like a different person.  I am so happy with the results.  Now I feel confident in front of people with or without my make-up.  I don’t need to wear foundation on my face or if I forget to wear it, it does not bother me!  I feel more energy in my body and healthy.  I lost some weight too as a result of eating healthy food and exercising regularly.  I can’t thank Doctor Stephen Ferguson enough for helping me cure my problem.  Now I speak of him at work and recommend friends and family to see him for any health problems they have.  It feels so much better to be cured the natural way rather than dependent on medicated drugs with its unwanted side effect!


Doctor Stephen Ferguson- My concentration is a lot better since I visited the Natural Health Clinic

I suffered with low blood count which caused fatigue and poor concentration.  I gained weight because my lifestyle was not conducive to one that was active.  I was tired, sleepy and felt sluggish most of the time. My skin looked dull and was dry.  I was worried that I was gaining more weight and my inactive lifestyle was not getting any better.

I heard about Doctor Stephen Ferguson and the Natural Health Clinic through a friend.  I booked an appointment to see him at the clinic for a consultation.  He did a live blood analysis and a full body MOT on me.  My live blood results were very poor as expected because I had low haemoglobin or red blood cells which were not storing oxygen and nutrition in my body and as a result poor concentration and constant tiredness.  I expressed my concern with my weight problems. I felt low within myself as my weight increased.  Doctor Stephen Ferguson was very encouraging; he said that my problems will get better if I followed a prescribed eight week natural health programme to reverse my health problems.

I was given natural supplements to supplement my diet daily.  I also took a natural blood cleanser to cleanse and revitalise my blood cells.  A diet and exercise plan was prescribed and Doctor Stephen Ferguson showed me how to do each exercise on a daily basis in my own home. I changed my diet to include the foods that were prescribed to me.   Also used a non drying shower gel and a body cream with vitamins which I applied twice daily all over my body.

One and a half weeks into the programme, I felt better and brighter.  My skin looked so much better and conditioned.  The dryness was no longer visible.  What I liked about the cream was it gave a nice smooth shine to my skin and it looked brighter and healthy.  My energy levels felt better.  I took some protein energy drinks before and after exercises.  It increased my strength and muscle tone by the end of four weeks.  I was very happy with my improved results.  I lost a stone and a half in weight by the end of four weeks.  This really brightened up my day when I went for my checkup with Doctor Stephen Ferguson.  My blood results looked so much better and it looked more alive like how I felt.

By the end of the eight week programme, I was back to my normal self.  I lost another stone and feel lighter and energetic.  I am more alert and don’t need to take occasional naps during the day and I get up feeling rested and ready to face the day.

My life has changed and I am very happy with the overall result.  I continue with the programme because it has done so much for me in a matter of weeks.








Doctor Stephen Ferguson- Back Pain

Research on Back pain




Introduction – What is back pain?

Back pain is experienced by most people at some stage in their live.  It affects both young and old and the pain usually stems from the bones, joints, muscles and nerves in the spine.  Back pain may be caused by bad posture while standing or sitting for long periods of time, bending in an uncomfortable position or even lifting incorrectly.  Apart from causative injury to the back, internal health conditions that affect the gallbladder, pancreas and certain types of cancer and infections can cause a person to experience back pain.  Non medical conditions such as menstrual bleeding and pregnancy may also cause women to experience varying degrees of back pain.  Most people suffer pain in the lower back or lumbago.  Almost 80% adults suffer from lower back pain.

Back pain is a common problem but not always a permanent life crippling condition.  Severe and chronic back pain has adverse effects on employment status, relationships, mood, sleep, daily activities, mobility, general health and lifestyle.  Back pain usually improves in a matter of weeks or months but some people experience long-term back pain, one that keeps coming back.



What are the symptoms and types of back pain?

Back pain can be felt at any part of the segments on the spine ranging from the neck right down to the hips.  The pain can be felt in the upper, lower and middle region of the back and in different intensity.  It can be a sharp stab, piercing or burning sensation or a dull ache.   It can radiate to other parts of the body such as the legs, feet, arms, hands and shoulders. Generally, the pain may be acute or chronic, short term or long term.   It can be intermittent, constant or stay in one place in the back.  Apart from pain, other nerve like sensation may be felt; a weakness or numbness in the arms and legs may indicate injury to the nerves or tingling pins and needles like sensations in the legs, feet, arms and hands.

The symptoms of back pain are usually felt from mild to severe.  Acute pain takes up to 12 weeks to subside.  Sub-acute pain is the second half of the acute pain phase which is the duration between 6 and 12 weeks.  Chronic pain is when a person’s back pain goes beyond the 12 weeks and may potentially recur more than once at a later stage.

What causes back pain?

Some of the causes and symptoms of back pain are listed below.


It causes pain that radiates from the lower back to the thighs and leg.  The pain is caused by the sciatic nerve that is a large nerve extending from the lower back down to the back of each leg.  Pain is usually felt on one side of the leg.  Common symptoms include:

  • Burning or tingling feeling experienced down the leg
  • A shooting pain that is difficult to ignore when standing up
  • Constant pain on side of the buttock/rear or leg that worsens when sitting down
  • Weakness, numbness and difficulty moving the leg or foot

Slipped disc

A slipped disc is a condition that describes damage incurred in the disc of the spine.  It damages and presses or constricts the nerves in the spine causing the back to be uncomfortable, weak, numb and painful.  A slipped disc is sometimes termed as a prolapsed or herniated disc.  It is said, 95% of disc herniations are experienced in the lowest two lumbar of the spine.

A slipped disc is experienced when the outer case of the disc splits and the gel within the disc.  The damaged disc may apply pressure on the entire spinal column or a single nerve root that leaves the spinal column.  The pain may be experienced in the swelling area of the disc and other parts of the body that is controlled by the nerve that the disc is pressing or constricting.  It is unclear what causes the disc to degenerate, but is usually common as we increase in age.  Part of the aging process in the body causes the disc to lose fluid content causing it to be rigid and split.  Smoking is another indication for the disc to be inflexible and causes it to degenerate.  Some people may go through life not recognising they have a slipped disc problem even though they have one!


Back pain maybe a sign that a fracture has occurred in the spine.  Brittle, weak bones caused by osteoporosis are usually the culprit of this type of condition.  Osteoporosis itself does not present a symptom. It is a condition that makes the bones more susceptible to bone fracture.  It is a progressive bone disease that reduces bone mineral density and structure.  In the long term it proteins that make up the bones are altered causing fracture.  The World Health Organisation defines osteoporosis as a bone mineral density of 2.5 standard deviations or more below the mean peak bone mass measured by two x-ray beams with different energy levels.  These beams measure the energy levels of the bones when soft tissue absorption is subtracted out, as a result the bone mineral density can determined.

Osteoporosis is a degenerative disease categorised as primary type 1, primary type 2 or secondary.  Fractures caused by osteoporosis are one of the main reasons for back pain and sometimes disability for women post menopausal, also known as primary type 1.  The cause is the depletion in oestrogen production after menopause.  Primary type 2 conditions are usually referred to both men and women after the age of 75.  Secondary osteoporosis affects both men and women due to side effects of steroid induced medication on a continued basis for other health related medical conditions.


Lumbago is a type of back pain that affects the lower region of the back.  It is difficult to identify the precise cause of this condition. The pain is usually mild to severe or a general ache experienced in the lower back.  The onset of pain can be acute or chronic.  The pain is there in a matter of weeks in acute conditions and under chronic conditions it persists for three or more months.  There is the possibility of small tears and strains of the muscles and ligaments.  There are many complex muscles and ligaments that make up the anatomy of the back.  It is a struggle to determine the cause in the complexity of the back structure.

The symptoms of lumbago are:

  • Muscle spasms surrounding the spine causing it to be stiff in the back region
  • Inflexible spine to cause the body to bend forward and lean back
  • Severe spasm and pain experienced in the back may cause it to lean to one side casuing a poor posture or limp
  • Cause sciatic symptoms such as tingling, numbness and pain in the lower back shooting through the thigh and one side of the leg.

Most people will experience lumbago at some point.  If strenuous physical activities are required for work, younger people are susceptible to this condition and persist later in life as senior citizens.

Spinal stenosis

This is a condition that narrows the spine and causes pressure on the spinal column and nerves.  Most cases of spinal stenosis occur in the lower back in the lumbar region and may pain on the back of the leg.

There are several factors that induce spinal stenosis to occur such as the aging process, arthritic conditions mainly osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis.   Other related possibilities are heredity and tumours in the spine.

Stenosis symptoms may also press the nerve that control the muscle power and the feelings and sensations in the legs.  Other symptoms include:

  • Pain when mobilising and walking
  • Clumsiness and frequent falls
  • Tingling, numbness and different hot and cold temperatures felt in the legs.

The causes and symptoms of back pain are exhaustive, some of the common causes are mentioned above.  To add to the list in no particular order: frozen shoulder, ankylosing spondylitis, whiplash, arthritis and cancer.

Who are susceptible or likely to have back pain?

  • Smoking – causes tissue damage in the back
  • Overweight and or Obesity – access weight exerts pressure on the spine and causes stiffness, general discomfort and pain to different areas of the back
  • Pregnancy – the extra weight of carrying a baby places additional strain on the back
  • Prolonged use of certain types of drugs such as steroids and corticosteroids induces to bone brittleness and fractures
  • Stress and depression causes unexplained back pain usually accompanied with headaches.


In summary, back pain has been reported to affect over five million people in the United Kingdom.  Most of them go on to develop chronic back pain and only two thirds recover from back pain.  An estimated 11% of adults, 5% of children suffer with acute back pain, which rounds-up 7.8 million people who live in the UK.  Senior citizens, women, poor housing and types of employments were indicators for people suffering back pain in the community.



Doctor Stephen Ferguson- I used to get irritable, sometimes sleepy but I am better now- Live blood test

I came to see Doctor Stephen Ferguson after a mate of mine convinced he has been cured of his diabetes after being on an eight week health programme prescribed by Doctor Stephen Ferguson.  I had to come and see for myself and booked an appointment the next week to see Doctor Stephen Ferguson at the Natural Health Clinic.  I have been suffering with diabetes for fifteen years.  My blood sugar level was always swinging throughout the day but usually it recorded a high result.  I get tired, irritable sometimes sleepy, dizzy or have a sick feeling of wanting to throw up.

Doctor Stephen Ferguson did a live blood test on me.  I saw my blood cells on the screen.  It looked so slow and a lot of things in my blood.  I asked Doctor Stephen Ferguson if my blood could get better and he was very positive about it.    He also did further tests and treatment on me.  To change my blood to health blood cells, I had to change my eating and lifestyle habits.  Doctor Stephen Ferguson prescribed a diet and exercise plan.  I took some health supplements and a blood cleanser in the form of a green powder which I take twice daily while on the eight week programme.  I also took some energy drinks before and after I exercise.  Doctor Stephen Ferguson recommended and showed me step by step how to do these exercises at the Clinic.  I had to do these exercise for 20 minutes at home every day and increased it as I built up my strength.

Two weeks into the programme, my blood sugar level went down and I feel more energy in my body.  I went back to see Doctor Stephen Ferguson for a check up and my blood sugar level was down.  Its eight weeks now, my blood sugar level has gone right down and is normal.  I feel so much better health wise.  I lost a stone in weight and feel good about it.

I am very happy that I went to see Doctor Stephen Ferguson.  I feel so much healthier and feel more in control of myself which gives me more confidence.  I recommend Doctor Stephen Ferguson to other members in my family and since then, two of them are already on his health programme.
