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!
I came to see Doctor Stephen Ferguson two months ago. I was suffering from very high blood pressure, painful knees and very, very tired most of the time. I am in my early 30’s. I was afraid that I was not getting better with the different health problems and I did not want to be tablet dependent for the rest of my life.
My knee pain was excruciating. I used to go to the gym three times a week because I wanted to keep fit for fear of putting on too much weight. It was an effort to keep it up to three times a week because my knees were playing up most of the time. Especially one of them. I had to be careful with the type of exercises I did so that my knees do not have further damage. I lost my enthusiasm at the gym because I could not train very hard. I was tired and in pain. Sometimes, I get up with tenderness around the knee joints. It could be worse on the left knee and then in a couple of days time, the pain will be worse in the right knee. I used heat pads, knee guards, rub balm on the knee and took pain killers to help with the pain.
I also had to be careful, because I suffer from high blood pressure. When I get my blood pressure checked, it always seems high. It was disappointing because I try to rest and tried changing my lifestyle a bit but did not get very far. My extreme tiredness reduced my social life to nothing at times especially during the weekend. I hardly had the energy to go out with my mates. When I am home, I sleep and rest during the evenings and spend most of the time indoors with my two children rather than taking them out. Sometimes I felt life was dull and boring. I know it was because I was unable to do much and felt unfair to suffer from high blood pressure in my 30’s.
I went to see Doctor Ferguson. He did a life blood test and then put me on an eight week programme. I listened to him and kept to it rigorously determined to get better. I am so glad to say that I see so much improvement. I took the vitamins, health drinks, blood cleanser and recommended exercises. I noticed my strength was back. I was able to go back to the gym. My knee pain disappeared. The stiffness and dull ache was not there, something I suffered most mornings. My blood pressure returned to normal which is a big relief. Overall, I feel great! Even
my children see the difference. I picked up my social life during the weekend and am so happy my tiredness is not a problem anymore. Thank you Doctor Ferguson for helping gain my life again!
