All of these patients had spent years seeing a number of medical doctors and had received many different types of medical treatments but their health problems remained or got worse.
I am deeply grateful for all these patient testimonials, indebted and beholden to every single one of these patients (and all other patients that I see); all, without exception placed their trust in me – sometimes the going got tough, but their trust in me, and my trust in holistic medicine helped to get through the dark patches of the tunnel where we could see light again.
I also express gratitude to them for placing their trust in me when I would say: “I have never tried this before, but I think it is going to work because ……” Nearly without exception most patients agreed to experiment and we managed to move one step forward. I believe these qualities of trust, commitment, developing a healthy therapeutic relationship with a mutual respect, and a determination to get well play a very important role in the whole therapeutic process for both patient and therapist.
The cases are presented in the same format throughout, as follows:
- The presenting problem
- The medical diagnosis consisting of blood tests, scans and medical reports written by medical practitioners
- The holistic diagnosis, which consists of all the testing that was conducted by myself and sometimes other natural medicine practitioners
- The holistic treatments that the patient followed as part of their healing journey, usually based on the diagnostics.
- A personal account by the patient concerning how they perceived their health problem and what this meant to them. This was taken by an independent medical doctor who would spend about an hour with each patient taking their personal account.
- Comments by myself about the particular case.
- Finally, I just want to add that apart from the gratitude that I have towards all these brave souls who persevered with their wellness programmes, I am also in reverence to the Higher Power that guided myself and supported my patients throughout their healing journey.
