I came to see Doctor Stephen Ferguson at the Natural Health Clinic. I was recommended by a family friend after she was treated by him.
I have been suffering from heavy and painful periods for a long time. Over time, this has made me weak and tired most of the time. I find it difficult to concentrate at times. I worry because I have a lot of studying and exams at university. My tiredness and concentration gets in the way in providing my research work on time. When my period is approaching, my breast feels tender and uncomfortable, my lower tummy feels heavy and I experience a nagging back pain radiating to my left or right thigh. I take time out from classes and doing my studies when I have my periods. In the first few days, it is so bad; I huddle in bed with a hot water bottle on my tummy and take regular painkillers to subside the pain. At times the cramps are so bad that I feel sick and nauseous. It really gets me down when my time of the month is approaching. I have to plan around doing things when I know it is due and worry if I have exams or extra studies to cope with. I went to the doctors several times, who prescribed painkillers and I was also diagnosed with anaemia which went on for years although I was taking tablets to help with it.
I am very glad to have seen Doctor Stephen Ferguson. I felt comfortable talking to him with my health problem. He was kind and attentive. He asked me lots of question about my eating habits and my daily activities. He did a live blood test on me. It was new to me. I found it very interesting. I usually give blood to test my anaemic levels but never seen it life before! It was very sluggish. I could see a difference when I went for a couple more of live blood test after being put on an eight week health programme. What a tremendous difference! I changed my diet, took the blood cleanser and natural vitamins and health drinks. I was also given an exercise programme which I could do and increased as my energy levels increased. I really feel so different now with so much life in me! My concentration has returned, I don’t feel tired that easily. But the best part is I don’t suffer from period pains anymore. My anaemia has subsided by just changing my diet and taking the natural health supplements. My family noticed the difference, I’m not slow in doing things and happy. I intend to continue with my health regime. Thanks Doctor Ferguson!
