I can’t remember the last time I went to the doctor for myself. Outside of my regular pap smears I pretty much just grin and bear it when I’m sick. I’m too busy taking the kids to school, soccer, art class, the doctor, parties. There’s no time for me.
But now that I’m 37, my health issues are building up. I completely flaked out six months ago and a blood test revealed critically low levels of iron and vitamin D which explained my lack of energy and inability to moderate my moods, amongst other things.
I take supplements now but I live with constant thrush, I retain water like there’s no tomorrow, I have trouble getting to sleep, I have problems with regularity and I have itchy patches and acne all over my body. One-in-eight women in my family develop a connective tissue disease – lupus, MS, scleroderma just to name a few. And my period is really weird. It’s painful the first day, ultra-heavy the second and then a trickle for a week and a half. So annoying!
Conventional medicine has its place of course but I feel like it only helps once the damage is done. I want to age well, I want to FEEL youthful and I want to prevent future problems. To quote Paul Keogh from Fusion Health, it’s not necessarily about life-extension, rather it’s about health-extension.
I watched an interview once with the world’s oldest man. He was 114. The interviewer asked him how he felt and he said he was bored and wanted to die. He had no mobility and no quality of life. Every morning he woke up he was disappointed that he had to endure another day.
Fusion Health offers the best of both worlds with the integration of Chinese and Western herbal medicine. There’re no stinky teas, just supplements targeted to specific problems. I visited their website and found my local supplier. Libido, Constipation, Weight Loss, Detox…anything you can think of and they have a brilliant complementary herbal medicine designed to help.
It’s hard to decide which ones you need which is why the consultation is so important. My consultation took place over the phone. I have to say, it was really nice to talk to someone who was interested in my health issues. I really enjoyed talking to someone about the bigger picture. The fact they are trained to ask the right questions brings up all the right information.
I’d forgottenabout my year of glandular fever when I was nine that affected my spleen. I’d forgotten about the physical shutdown I’d experienced when I first started working breakfast radio hours, I’d forgotten about the abnormal pap smear that developed in between my regular appointments, and I’d forgotten about the lethargy I often feel during winter.
