After 4th prescription:
Maintained weight and didn’t lose any further weight. Joint pain better for hot shower. Not much else has changed.
After 5th prescription:
Eating everyday and enjoying food. Maintained a steady weight. Added daily bladder support remedy for urine issues.
After 6th prescription:
Eating everyday and feeling hungry. ‘Your medicine worked like a miracle!’ Now eating 3 times a day (previously only once daily). Maintained a steady weight. Nocturnal cough is less frequent. Bowel better and not dependant on laxative. Going daily with no pain and only taking laxative weekly if needed. Previously this was twice daily. Heel and sole pain still there but much better. Urine issues remain.
After 7th prescription:
Kidney infection and operation to remove kidney stone. Feeling hungry and eating little and often. Lump sensation in throat now only felt 1-2/week. Previously was daily.
After 8th prescription:
Bowels still daily, no pain and feeling of completion after emptying. Not waking at night to urinate so sleeping better. Heel and sole pain gone. Resting after the operation helped to decrease her body aches.
Appetite issues have been improved but the other issues like the body aches and urine issues are chronic so will take much longer to heal. She decided to stop treatment as the kidney operation helped so much and her appetite is back to normal.
