It was time to change my life style. After taking medication for 41 years for high blood pressure and having fibromyalgia for 28 years, the pain was not getting any better that's when I decided it's time to take the plunge to better my health. My pain was intolerable and was to the point I was not functioning on a daily basis. I also have herniated disks in my lower back. It was hard to stand straight or walk and I was in complete pain 24/7. I walked at an angle and was completely lopsided in order to manage to try to live an everyday life of doing my basic necessities. It caused headaches, neck and shoulder pain as the rest of my body was trying to compensate for this imbalance in my body. After many tests over the years including X-rays, MRI, CT Scans, the conclusion from these tests was that there was not much they could do other than to medicate me in order to numb the pain. That was not the answer I was looking for. I did not want any more medication as the side effects far outweighed the benefits. It was either take this medication and sleep my life away or live with the pain.
I knew there was more to life than that. I needed to get to the root of the problem.
In October I decided to go meet holistic specialist – Haman Dowlatram. He discussed everything with me and was very thorough and understanding. He understood that it is difficult to change my lifestyle and he told me to take baby steps. He asked me to commit for 3 months and see the progress I could make in just 3 short months. It seemed reachable and I agreed to do it. It was the best decision I made.
I significantly changed my eating and introduced holistic supplements into my lifestyle. I started taking my supplements.....you name them.......and after about a month of taking the supplements and changing my eating lifestyle, I was feeling significantly less pain. Friends and family were noticing how much straighter I was walking and my pain was more tolerable. My husband would say I don't here you complain about your pain as much. Before making my lifestyle changes, I was at a pain level 10+ on pain scale of 1-10. It was very difficult for me to lead a normal life with my constant pain. Now I would say my pain level is at a 5. I can now function normally on a daily basis.
I have more energy and I am sleeping much better . My skin and hair feel healthier and I have my glow back. I went to my family doctor recently and he told me to keep on doing whatever I am doing as my blood pressure was the best it has ever been in 41 years. I can only imagine the positive effect this lifestyle change is having on the rest of me. I have a more positive outlook and I feel ready to wake up each morning and take on life.
Thanks to alternative medicine it has given me back the quality of life.
