Wanted to share this with you -----Look at this - I now weigh the lowest I have in years. Been scrapping windows for hours and hours and still not finished - great exercise obviously :) Will send a photo when I get one.
Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Without you sharing your wonderful knowledge and ongoing support and passion I would still be suffering and my body slowly shutting down, and taking more and more medication. Also couldn't have got through losing my DAD, one of the closet women (aunty) in life AND my husband of 20 years all in one year!
Love ya dude :)

This lovely woman has had a lifelong struggle with her weight, finally resorting to stomach reduction surgery. While she lost a lot of weight initially, much of it was gradually regained. When I met her for the first time, she was extremely tired, depressed, overweight and, in my opinion, over medicated.
Hair Tissue Mineral Analyses, first performed in 2012 and then repeated in 2013, confirmed that she was malnourished, a common consequence of stomach reduction surgery. In addition, she had a significant accumulation of lead in her body, possibly due to home renovations (lead paint). Lead may cause symptoms like depression, brain fog, fatigue, joint pain and osteoporosis.
In my opinion, her stomach reduction surgery was an abject failure and left her with more problems than it has solved. At the time of her first consultation with me she was on multiple medications including Citalopram for depression, Levothyroxine for an underactive thyroid. Tranexamic acid for heavy menstrual bleeding and Omeprazole for reflux!
Now drug free and much better off!
I am delighted to report that she no longer has any need for drugs and is all the healthier for not doing so! Her improvement in health is reflected in her body composition stats below. I want to add that she deserves all the credit; I merely offered her guidance and support - she did the hard work. Talk about patient!
Here are some charts for my delighted client. The body composition readings are from her Salter 9106 scales which are inexpensive, simple to use and incredibly reliable.
|Note her slow, steady loss of total weight, fat while gaining lean muscle, water and even bone!|
Slow weight losses from exercise with a nutrient dense diet and supplementation is the way to go.
Her latest readings are 74.4 Kg and 28.6%.
