Barbara was a Nurse in the NHS before she retired, so she had a fantastic depth of knowledge about how the body worked and knew a lot about different symptoms and conditions.
But there were some pieces of the puzzle missing in solving her chronic health challenges. Thankfully, using functional medicine and nutrition for gut healing we were able to halt the decline and get her moving towards a greater level of vitality.
Barbara (United Kingdom) | Success after Years of Painful Metabolic Disorder
For many years my health issues were getting more serious – Abdominal Distention, Non alcoholic fatty liver disease, GastroIntestinal disorders, Weight Gain, Low Energy, Sleep Disorders, Low Morale and Aching Muscles and Joints.
Having a Nursing and Medical background I have sought help and treatment from NHS, Naturopaths, Acupuncturist and Homeopaths over the years. Finally in 2012 I felt so poorly, exhausted and in a lot of discomfort so my GP and various NHS Consultants ran testing including blood tests, Gastroscopies and Colonoscopies.
I received several diagnoses (antral gastritis, Non Functioning Gall Bladder, Diverticula) and an “inconclusive” outcome. So I began working with Jack Walton and Dave Hompes to develop a way forward and focused mainly on nutrition and functional medicine for gut healing.
At last I am able to sleep naturally for first time in 7-8 years. Energy levels are very good and muscle tone and aching joints have subsided. Abdominal distention has minimised greatly too. Although there is some ongoing work to do on the NAFLD and non functioning gall bladder, I am now in my late 70’s but feel much younger and able to enjoy a more energetic lifestyle.
