Earlier this year, my 2 boys age 3+ years and 19 months were infected with streptococcus pneumoniae.
Their lungs were affected and the young one had ear discharge that became a real concern for us - our paediatrician, my husband and I. The boys went through tests and treatments with strong antibiotics, etc.But signs of chronic infection persists.
My husband and I decided to try naturopathic phytomedicine with Sebastian Liew. After 2 rounds of treatments with Sebastian in a span of 2 months, my boys now have resumed their active lifestyles and good appetite.
Hence, I feel very motivated and inspired to write my note of appreciation to Sebastian for his patience and support during the treatment period. Currently, I just maintain them with remedies such as – Pelargonium, good bacteria (flora), zinc and fennel. Recently, I fell ill with symptoms of productive cough, fever and severe joint pains. I took hart tongue for my cough and was very surprised of its efficacy. My phlegm cleared up and my cough eased considerably.
The best part is I did not suffer from side effects (such as drowsiness) as with conventional medications. In any case, conventional medications do not usually work very well. I am now a supporter for Hart Tongue elixir - A Hildegard medicine.
I thought Sebastian’s phytomedicine do not come cheap. But after seeking treatment with Sebastian, I find that the cost for antibiotics are even higher.
Health is priceless. If one can afford natural healing, then optimum health can be realised through channels such as Sebastian Liew's naturopathic phytomedicine.
I am happy to have benefited from Sebastian Liew's naturopathic remedies.
Chronic Leg Ulcer
My mother was suffering from a chronic leg ulcer for more than two years. Doctors at a local hospital said that it was impossible to cure due to her age and poor vascular drainage. Dr Liew used a herbal paste for the healing of the ulcer and gave her the herb Olive leaf to prevent infection and to treat her high blood pressure. Within three months, the ulcer was healed completely
I developed a form of palmer dermatitis on both of my palms 6 months back. As usual, I went to consult a dermatologist at the National Skin Centre.
The dermatologist prescribed steroid creams and PUVA treatment for my hands but it did not seem to work and the condition actually got worsened.
My friend recommended me to see the medical herbalist Sebastian Liew for a lasting solution.
Sebastian put me on herbs to improve my liver function and the lymphatic system and was told to avoid certain foods. He also created a customised herbal wash and a herbal cream to ease dryness, heal the wounds and treat the infection.
My condition improved after 3 months with no recurrence if after I ate the “wrong” food. I am now applying the St Hildegard’s virita balm for continuous skin resilience and immunity.
Chronic anxiety and insomnia
I am 38 years old , married to a loving husband and we both have a son. I have a wonderful job , friends and a good life.
The story started in 2008. I have suffered from a sleep disorder since my son’s birth. It usually took me 2 to 3 hrs to fall asleep. Many times I have wakeful sleep and not be able to get back to sleep. My condition affected everything in my life - my work, social life and home life.
I have 2 family members who have the same problem, so I decided to have psychiatry treatment to resolve this problem. I signed up for 6 months treatment but the medication never fully relieved my symptoms of anxiety and sleeping problem. I was very dissatisfied and disappointed. In addition, the drugs’side effects were tremendous.
On Aug, 2010, I visited Sebastian Liew Center. After consult with Dr Sebastian Liew, he gave me some advices and asked me to do some neurological tests to assess any deficiencies. He really helps me a lot and encourage me to be a confident person. After 2 months treatment on nutritional and herbal medicine , I started feeling better, my anxiety was completely gone and sleep quality improved tremendously.
I wanted to take this opportunity to express my thanks and appreciation to Dr Sebastian Liew for his patient and genuine attention that I received during my treatment.
The process has made a great positive change to my life. I hope others would be encouraged to try naturopathy.
Chronic eczema, Leaky Gut syndrome and Candidiasis
I want to thank God for leading me to find Sebastian for my condition which had plagued me all my life. I suffered eczema from birth. During my growing up years, I remembered the times I scratched, bled and was scarred from the scratching. I consulted GPs, Chinese doctors, specialists at NSC (National Skin Centre) and in private practice. I took many types of medicine, Chinese herbs and steriods - both oral and topical. My condition would ease and return with the same severity and itch. Over the years, I resigned myself to my condition and accepted that it was hereditary.
Things took a turn late last year when my eczema flared up again. I took the usual course of steriod pills and steroid cream. I tried moisturizing my skin but the itch was relentless. I started to scratch and use scalding hot water to relieve the itch. My skin became very dry and painful. Red, inflamed patches of raised skin appeared on the folds of my elbows and behind my knees. The skin on my arms and legs peeled and flaked from the scratching. The final straw was when I decided to get a steriod injection to stop the itch.
The relief was a short two months and the flare-up came back with a greater vengeance. I was worried and realized that I was experiencing steroid withdrawal symptoms. That was then I knew I had to seek alternative types of treatment.
When I first saw Sebastian, my skin was a wreck. Where I could only take herbal supplements and natural remedies for my condition, I was fearful and doubted how I could make it through the treatment. I was scratching constantly, even when I was already bleeding from the sores. In the next two weeks, both my feet swelled from water retention. I could not walk for long and daily showers were a pain, literally. My skin was smarting horrendously from the water. I could not get a good night sleep for weeks. I was even fearful of eating. It was nightmarish.
Sebastian was very patient. He prescribed all that I needed and more. With his encouragement, his stories and comforting presence, he helped me to persist and stay on track with proper nutrition, diet and lifestyle changes.
At the onset, it was an not easy thing to do - changing the way I eat and the food choices I made when all these years, I have been brought up on this basis. I had to re-educate myself on what I should eat and what to look out for when eating out. The idea was to start small, start slow and I will get there eventually. In the meantime, I try to enjoy and reflect on the process, for life is a journey - for me, tedious but manageable by God’s grace.
I am a recovering eczema-leaky gut-candidasis sufferer, with my skin now rash-free. I still abstain from many foods especially that which I am intolerant to. I now seek out foods that I can eat safely and experiment preparing foods which I could eat. It has made me more mindful of what I am putting into my body, to eat healthily on what is available and to plan ahead when I am eating out or cooking for myself and my family. It is still mostly work and a bit of fun yet. Nonetheless, I am grateful for this opportunity to do things differently.
Now, I hope to inspire my family and my friends to do the same. Thank you, God and thank you, Sebastian.
When I first came to see Sebastian, I was suffering from pain in the knee joints. I am happy to say that the pain has disappeared. I think it was due to a combination of things: exercise, wearing the right type of shoes, diet and herbal prescription. I have also lost weight 5kg, to be exact.
But the best news I have had, since seeing Sebastian, is that I am off my medication for high blood pressure.
Recently, Sebastian introduced me to Parsley Elixir and I love it. It is easy to drink and I believe is responsible for me feeling less tired. I am in a better mood these days too. I am still seeing him as I am trying to cure my sinusitis, which is partly due to my cat. I am keeping my fingers crossed, as I will not give up my cat.
