Well here’s my health journey so far… Just over 4 years ago, my health was in a terrible state, I was suffering from a yeast infection which was affecting my entire body. I had brain fog all the time and my memory which was once so great and reliable, was no longer. My immune system, “in my words, was in turmoil”, it had begun attacking the clothes that I would be wearing, I know it sounds strange but this is what happened, so it was very difficult for me to work more the 3 hours a day comfortably.
My energy levels and enthusiasm for life were just slipping away. I started to Question my life’s purpose and wondered if there was a point in continuing at all. (Wow this all feels like such a distant memory). For anyone who has suffered from a yeast infection you’ll know what I’m talking about. On the outside you look fine, healthy even.
No one can see what you’re going through on the inside, not even you completely. It was a very confusing time for me. For a long time, I kept seeing my Doctor who could only prescribe drugs to try and mask the situation, NOTHING WORKED!!!
The more he shook his head in disbelief that nothing he gave me worked, the more I realised I was in the wrong place.
My gut instinct told me to go as natural as possible, so cutting a long story short, I finally found the Hervey Bay Wellbeing Centre. I now only wished I’d had a good friend who’d known about them and referred me there years prior. I may not have been in such a mess when I had walked in their doors in 2008.
Everywhere else that I had been to in search of a health solution, I would always get very emotional when they talked about my “Lack” of health because I could sense that they had no way of helping me.
But at the Hervey Bay Wellbeing Centre from my first appointment, I knew if I followed their recommendations that I would get results. I remember having my first hemaview, I found it fascinating and amazing that this was me, on the big screen. Here was the answer I was looking for. Soon my energy levels and enthusiasm for life had returned. My body soon reflected the changes I had made, in all I lost 12 kgs, no more yeast and I am the happy-go-lucky person I used to be.
Thank you to everyone at the centre for giving me hope, and teaching me that good health isn’t out of reach. It just has to be a priority. Because without health you don’t have much of a life, but it’s never too late to start implementing good healthy changes in your life.
PS . I have just started working at the centre so come in and say hi, and you can see I’m living proof that commitment does pay off.
