Before I came to see Doctor Stephen Ferguson I suffered from crohn’s disease and severe lymphedema. I had severe pain in my lower limb and it was all swollen. I suffered from diarrhoea, stomach pain, tiredness, loss of appetite. I was really unwell for a very long time, and the symptoms were severe especially at the time of relapses. I constantly had blood in my stools and sometimes feeling the urge to go to the toilet even though there was really nothing coming out. On some occasions the diarrhoea was so severe that I would suffer from leaks which was a huge embarrassment. It was very demeaning to me and whenever I had a leak I would feel like a baby in nappies trying to learn being potty trained. I was conscious about eating because every time I ate something I would rush to the toilet. Sometimes I would feel feverish, like my temperature would rise instantly and when this happened I would lose my appetite. I was put on constant medication to help control the severe symptoms. It was difficult for me to walk, was in so much pain and the more I tried to force myself to walk, the more the swelling increased. I had to leave work and stay at home until I felt better. I was agency employed which means that there was no security on my job in terms of sick pay.
After so much suffering, I decided to come and see Dr Stephen Ferguson for a live blood test. Various friends had done the live blood test and they recommended me to come and do one, but I was always adamant about it. Anyway my live blood test revealed that my blood circulation was not good. Dr Stephen Ferguson put me on 8 weeks programme which involves taking food supplements and vitamins.
After two weeks on the programme the runny diarrhoea stopped, no waking up at night to run to the toilet, the pain in the limb went down, didn’t have to wear the surgical stockings anymore. Bloating disappeared so I had the freedom to eat whatever I wanted to eat, no medication, didn’t want the look or smell of it. There was no more coughing up blood. Generally my Crohn’s settled down.
By the end of the 8 weeks I was very healthy, no stomach problems, no pain at all. And I had lost 1 stone without even exercising. When Dr Stephen Ferguson did the live blood test this time my blood had changed, even he was surprised and I was surprised and happy. I felt better and healthy. I became aware of what to eat, when to eat and how often to eat.
Dr Stephen Ferguson’s live blood test is worthwhile and the programme is worth taking. I bet it can change so many other people’s lives. I am so glad that I did it. I have not taken any medication since I started the programme and I realised that I don’t need medicine to be healthy, I just need to watch what I eat. I would recommend the live blood test to anyone out there who has not done one to try it. It is life changing.
