Case Study #3
Symptoms: Chronic abdominal pain, watery, uncontrollable bowel movements, bleeding from the bowel, nausea, lethargy.
Rosalie* was 44 and was unable to leave her house for any length of time as the symptoms were so severe.
She was on steroids in an attempt to reduce the inflammation and also taking some other medications. As many of the drugs she was taking affected the liver, she had to have liver tests regularly.
She was so unwell that she couldn't sit through a "1st appointment" which takes about 2 hours, in fact she could only lay on the treatment bed for about 10 minutes before she had to use the bathroom. She was in a lot of pain and everything she ate went straight through her so she had no energy and as a result of her conditions, had lost a lot of weight.
Rather than distress her by having her sit through a 1st appointment, I did some quick treatments every 4 days for about 4 treatments until her bowel had regulated enough to sit for a while. I then started testing from some strains.
The symptoms began abating within a few days and continued to decrease over the course of the treatment.
She weaned herself off her drugs** and with the help of some supplements to help repair the gut wall and some probiotics to help restore her "good" gut bacteria she has been symptom free for well over 12 months.
** Please not: I am not a medical doctor and cannot and will not advise anyone to go off their medication. It needs to be done under the supervision of their doctor or specialist. In Rosalie's case she had weaned herself off them before and was comfortable reducing the drugs herself as the symptoms abated.
It took approximately 18 appointments to get to this point.
