The medications I was taking had no impact on my reducing my daily symptoms of:
- Diarrhea, alternating with constipation
- Abdominal pain and bloating
- Very low energy especially in the evening
- Poor sleep
- Mouth ulcers
- Anxiety and palpitations
After following the conventional medical treatment my health did not improve. I went on further to suffer kidney infections and estimated that I was only functioning at 40% capacity of a person my age. I was advised to stay on my medications with no guarantee that I was likely to ever recover back to full health again. My weight had dropped significantly and my energy levels were verging on that of someone with Chronic Fatigue. My family were very concerned and we had to turn to our relatives for help with every day commitments such as preparation of meals, shopping etc.
With no light at the end of the tunnel, I searched for a solution and by chance came upon a little book on “I.B.S”, written by a Sydney Naturopath. I knew I was onto something as I ticked “Yes” to almost every symptom on the questionnaire. It was with this form of Complementary Health Treatment that I was able to reverse this downward spiral by learning what the necessary dietary requirements were for my condition and how take therapeutic supplements to assist in my recovery.
Within a few months of following the Natural Therapy Treatment, I was back on track, my energy levels lifted and the debilitating abdominal pain disappeared. Within 6 months ….. I had totally recovered from my I.B.S and was able to once again lead a normal active life.
My return to health was so remarkable that I committed myself to helping others. I went on to study Reflexology and Mind/Body/Medicine at Nature Care College and today operate a busy Reflexology Clinic in Concord NSW, helping many others who suffer from digestive disorders and related conditions.
It was due to this life changing experience and the knowledge gained over the past 17 years that Sue has now developed a Gut Health Matters Seminar on Digestive Disorders and related conditions.
