I am happy to share that I have received a good interim results from my gynacologist on 29 Oct 11.One fibroid lodged in the middle of my uterus (dangerous to operate) had completely disappeared while the other fibroids had shrunk in size.
I was diagnosed with multiple fibroids a few years ago. They were regarded as small. However, my last check up on 12 Aug 11 showed that a few of them have grown to about 3 cm, about 1.5 times the last check up.
The gynaecologist suggested that I take the contraceptive pill to regulate the hormones and then do a 3-month follow up with him. He said that my fibroids may grow and since I still have many more years to go before menopause, they may recur even if I were to undergo an operation to remove them.
To be honest, I have been on the Pill since aged 11 as I suffered from irregular prolonged periods of heavy bleeding.
I shuttled between the gynaecologist and the sinseh for the greater part of my life. I wad anaemic and weak most of my life.
My condition only stabilised about 10 years ago and I stopped consuming the Pill, thank God!
I told myself that I was not going to put myself on the Pill again! Sebastian prescribed Mediherb herbal remedies such as Livco and a special herbal tea for fibroids. I confess I wasn't even very diligent with the regime, forgetting at times due to busyness. But I was diligent with my diet. He advised an anti-candida diet, which I followed closely for 6 weeks. It was painful in the beginning - no soy sauce, no soy products, no pork, no beef, no chicken and no social lunches. Then, I was downgraded to a no simple sugars, no white carbohydrates, no dairy, no hormones regime. It became easier for me. I do occasionally eat some beef and lamb. I no longer have sugar cravings which is wonderful. I no longer feel light-headed. I feel more focussed and my energy level has increased.
I also took up reiki to complement Sebastian's formula. In the process, emotional and spiritual healing took place.
I feel happier and healthier now. I lost 7 kgs of weight in 2.5 months without fasting or cutting down food intake. My menstrual flow is slightly lighter, I have minimal blood clots and I can function better instead of languishing in discomfort. It is just a readjustment of priorities and knowing what is good for my body.
I am still on the road to more healing. My next check up is in 6 months' time. I hope to get even better results.
Thanks for guiding me to an healthier path of living.
I suffered from prolapsed piles for more than 20 years. A few years ago, I decided to go for a haemorhoidectomy (removal of piles). It was an extremely painful affair which lasted 1 whole month. I was told by the surgeon that the pain was well worth it as I would never have to suffer from piles again. Well..... a few months after that I could feel the piles recurring, evidenced by the hardening of the anus and appearance of blood after passing motion. Upon self examination, the piles were back. I shared this with Sebastian. He gave me gota kola to help shrink the piles. I took it for about 2/3 months and the piles actually shrunk. I stopped for 1 month and they started to develop again. After about another 2/3 months of gota kola, the piles shrank again and Sebastian put me on emblika. This time, the piles did not return and the anus tissue softened. My advice: don't go for the operation unless you have abused your anus for the past 20 years like me. At the first sign that you have got piles, go to Sebastian and get advice from him to treat it the natural way. The pain of the operation was terrible and not worth it. The other things which Sebastian helped me is part of another testimony.
I woke up one morning in March 2013 with a fever. I had a pounding headache and intense pain on my back, joint and muscles. The following day, I developed a throat infection , swollen gums and both my legs were covered with red spots.
I went to the doctor and he didn’t even know I had dengue fever or diagnose me as such. I was just given a short consultation, given paracetamol and was out the door.
My fever didn't subside after taking the medication and I went to consult the doctor again. Though the diagnosis was not definite, I was asked to stay in a dengue cluster area. He advised me to take a blood test at the hospital. The test results showed that I had low red blood platelet count and was prescribed high dosage of penicillin (antibiotic). I recovered from dengue fever a week later.
However, this was the beginning of my nightmare. About a month later , I had a sudden breakout out on my face. Overnight, my face was covered with hundreds of skin lesions and the skin was inflamed and it felt like sandpaper. I was really devastated as this had never happened to me before. I have always had crystal clear and smooth skin and and never had any serious illness before.
I went for numerous chemical peels, consulted several specialist skin doctors and no one could tell me the actual cause of my problem. I was further prescribed with antibiotics and it aggravated the situation. My skin became worst and in addition suffered from a urinary tract infection. I lost my confidence and went into severe depression. This lasted for for about a year and I was on the verge of losing hope.
It was only about late April 2014 that I came upon Dr Sebastian's website and read about natural herbal supplements. I was very skeptical at first but decided to give it a try.
I recalled my first visit at Dr Sebastian's clinic. He spent nearly an hour with me to understand my condition. Almost immediately, he confirmed that my skin problem was due to the intake of antibiotics which caused the inflammation of my digestive system, which led to a condition known as Candidiasis.
Dr Sebastian put me on a 6 weeks diet program supplemented with carefully selected herbs. Within the first week, almost 80% of my skin lesions miraculously disappeared and gradually regained my health. Since then, I have never visited a conventional doctor and I am in the pink of health. My skin has never been so glowy and silky smooth. I look radiant and energized. I am heartened and grateful to Dr Sebastian for treating my illness and allow me to regain my self confidence.
Severe bloated stomach
In August 2010 last year, one month after trying for a baby, my stomach went from flat to severe bloatedness (size of a 5 month pregnant person's stomach) in a matter of seconds, right before my eyes. Except for a brief period in March-April 2011, my stomach stayed bloated and protruding all the way till end August 2011.
On top of the chronic stomach protrusion manifestation, I had chronic dermatological skin condition that seemed to worsen on a daily basis and all efforts to reduce the skin inflammation with paraben-free products did not help. My self esteem and confidence level was at an all time low, and i went through one year of depression. I was constantly plagued by chronic fatigue throughout this period which at that time i incorrectly attributed to normal aging process... For example, i would sleep for 10-12 hours and when i awoke, i was still extremely tired and sleepy... no amount of rest seem to get rid of my fatigue....
To make matters worse, the various doctors and professors that i went to told me that what i was experiencing was merely due to 'hormonal imbalances' and that my stomach condition was normal. I was so desperate, i went to see a Professor of Gynaecology (fertility) at a major hospital, who again told me that i was experiencng was due hormonal imbalances and was perfectly normal. Upon my further insistence, the professor took a second good look at my stomach and finally relented that the size and protrusion was not normal as i looked heavily pregnant (when i was not pregnant). The professor then recommended me to a Professor of Gastroencology at that same hospital. I had prior to seeing the Professor of Gastrocencology, gone for a blood and urine test with a GP in Malaysia and the test results showed that i was suffering from Helicobactor Plyori bacterial infection.
The last straw occured when i went to see the Professor of Gastroencology and he told me that nothing could be done for my stomach problem other than giving me a very low dose of a mild anti-depressent to numb my brain from sending 'the wrong signal' to my gut, thereby causing it to experience indigestion and bloatedness. I listened to the professor with utter horror at the professor's prognosis to my bloated stomach issue. When i showed the professor my H.Plyori test results, he insisted that i re-did the test using the Urea Breathe Test method, which again came back with a very high reading of H.Plyori bacterial infection. On top of the mild anti-depressent, the doctor gave me a course of 3 different types of medicine, 2 of which were courses of antibiotics specifically used to treat H.Plyori sufferers. I took home the medicine given but was adamant not to take the course of antibiotics as i have read the harmful effects of taking antibiotics, on the body's immune system.
While seeing the professors at the hospital, i had concurrently also looked up on a Naturopath whom i could see, and chanced upon Sebastian Liew Centre. The first time i saw Sebastian, he confessed to me that in his past 12 years of practice, he had never before seen any patient's stomach bloat and protrude to the extent that mine had. He said that it was a rather rare occurence. My heart sank when i heard this, but nonetheless, i was willing to give Naturopathy a try as a friend of mine from Australia had told me of how Naturopathy had helped her son eradicate issues with a genetic problem whereby the body not able to absorb nutrients and as a result his growth and development became somewhat stunted. Sebastian then went on to listen to me patiently on my health history and sequence of events and timeline from when my stomach protrusion started, to the present day. At the end of my first consultation, Sebastian asked me to do the following:
1) Take my Basal body temperature - day 2, 3 and 4 of my menstrual cycle. He explained that some thyroid sufferers have normal Thyroid clinical test results but in actual fact they were having sub-clinical thyroid issues and this basal temperature test would help verify that.
2) Candida yeast infection test - via saliva sample
3) Leaky Gut Syndrome test - via 6 hr urine sample
4) Comprehensive Female Hormone Profile test - via 24 hr urine sample
From the basal body temperature test, it showed that i did indeed have a sub-clinical thyroid problem and my comprehensive female hormone profile test results further affirmed this. My candida test results showed that i had a rather bad case of candidiasis. My Leaky Gut test results came back with 'extra-terrestrial' high readings and Sebastian admitted that it was THE highest readings he had ever seen among all his leaky gut sufferers patients. Prior to seeing Sebastian, i had been diagnose with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) and my comprehensive female hormone profile showed that i had an Insulin Resistence issue as well.
With the Functional test results confirming that i was suffering from Candidiasis, Leaky Gut, H.Plyori, PCOS and sub-clinical thyroid condition, Sebastian proceeded to put me on a 6 week programme of western herbal medicine for H.Plyori, GIT-2, Enzymes, Multiflora (probiotics), Bacto-Cand for candidiasis, EFA essentials, Pellitory foods (Bertram - Hildegard Medicine), Galangal minor powder (Hildegard Medicine) and a strict Elimination/Detox diet regime.
As a result of Leaky Gut syndrome, macromolecules, toxins and antigens are able to cross the intestinal barrier etc and the flood-gates of illnesses have started to flow into my bloodstream. The result of this is a whole possible range of clinical conditions such as Inflam. Bowel Disease, Irritable bowel, malabsorption, malnutrition, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's Disease, Autism, Coeliac Disease, dysbiosis, Inflam. joint disease, Rheumatoid arthritis, Inflammatory bowel disease, Ankylosing spondylitis, Reiter's syndrome, Chronic dermatological conditions, Schizophrenia, Allergic disorders, food allergies, trauma, alcoholism, anti-inflammatory drugs / corticosteroids and chemotherapy.
Within 1 week of treatment, my protruding stomach shrunk to almost back to normal size, and within that same week my Chronic Fatigue has vanished. I am now able to sleep at midnight and wake up by 6am and have energy that will last me all the way to midnight without feeling tired at all. My severe skin condition cleared up by the 2nd week of treatment and now being in my 5th week of treatment, I can now conclusively say that i am 90% recovered.
Most importantly, my confidence level has increased tremendously, and i am no longer suffering from depression as a result of my stomach protrusion and severe dermatological conditions. I've regained energy that i have not felt in years and it's almost as if i have been given a new lease of life! My friends and family say that i look younger than ever, and friends have asked me what's my secret to looking so youthful? I explained to them that they would have thought otherwise if they saw me a few weeks ago....
Through this whole experience has sealed my faith in Naturopathy, Western Herbal Medicine, and Hildegard Medicine. Sebastian Liew's in-depth experience in all these three areas and with proper functional tests, have helped determined the root cause of my stomach condition and successfully treated my illnesses the natural way through herbs and supplements from Mother Nature (without the use of antibiotics and other synthetic drugs that may have side effects).
I urge all of you to read the article below that i came across which explains my whole health condition, and i hope that more and more sufferers need not suffer needlessly like i did, and seek help the Naturopath way as early as possible. It could possibly save your life and the lives of your loved ones and friends around you...
Is Candida an Endocrine Disorder? - by the National Candida Society (UK)
Another interesting article i came across explains how candidiasis and a poor immune system by a pregnant mother can possibly cause babies to be susceptible to autism... I urge all would-be mothers, to read this....
Autism - causes and corrections
From my testimony, I hope more people will seek healing through the Naturopath way. It worked for me, and i am confident that it will work for many of you too.
Irritable bowel syndrome
Irritable Bowel Syndrome or Just Poor Digestion? For many years, I've suffered from pain in the abdomen, gas, and recurring ulcers in the mouth. I even went to see doctors about it. One doctor suggested that I take gastric medication to alleviate the symptoms. This helped for 1 week, but the symptoms would return and I simply stopped the medication. Another doctor gave me medication specifically for irritable bowel syndrome and told me that it could not remove all the symptoms, but that that was the best that medical science had at the time. Didn't help....... One of the side effects of irritable bowel syndrome, which not many tell you is that you pass motion very very often. When you are in a very stressful job, you lead a life that is highly stressful and you are rushing about a lot. This resulted in a lot of straining due to the many visits to the toilets which resulted in severe haemarrhoids or piles. I suffered from this condition for many years. How Sebastian helped me with this is part of another testimony.
Well, I discussed this with Sebastian and he proposed a number of options. After taking fennel for a while, my abdominal cramps and gas subsided. Next I started to watch my diet more closely, which is very difficult when leading a hectic life and job. One of the major contributors was pork. I really didn't belief this as I loved the meat and it featured prominently in my diet all my life. One day, I experimented and went off pork for 2 weeks. My ulcers subsided. I went back on pork and the ulcers recurred. I have since avoided the meat altogether (a difficult task considering that most of my favourite foods use pork). Nowadays, I'm free of ulcers unless I slip or inadvertently take the meat. I also did some research and found out that there are many people out there who suffer from allergy to pork, chicken, and many other meats. It has been a revelation to me to discover that the inflammatory response is so common and that the triggers could be common foods we eat.
I suffered from prolapsed hemorrhoid in year 2013. The general surgery specialist doctor recommended an operation immediately to remove it as medication is not able to treat it. I was hesitant and consulted Sebastian for an alternative treatment. Sebastian gave me virita balm to apply on the hemorrhoid and Phytolec, a herbal extract of Phyllanthus emblica.
After a few days, the hemorrhoids erupted and there was a lot of bleeding. Almost right away, they shrunk and gradually disappeared.
