Success Story Tricia

Success Story – Tricia
December, 2018
My story begins with a swollen foot in about May of this year. I tried to stay as mobile as possible despite the pain and difficulty in squishing my foot into a shoe that really did not fit at this point. The blue/purple colour of my foot indicating very poor circulation, had me a tad worried. Weekly chiropractic adjustments had no effect. However, I remained optimistic that the problem would soon resolve itself, but after about 4 weeks with no change I reluctantly went to see my doctor who ordered an x-ray. The x-ray showed a 1.9 cm shadow on my tibia (shin) and the doctor, of course, thought the worse and ordered a CT to rule out bone cancer. The CT showed that the ends of the tibia and fibula nearest to the foot were almost invisible resulting in a diagnosis of severe osteopenia (precursor to osteoporosis) which was shocking to me. In a follow-up visit with my doctor, he stated that I may have to go on medication if the problem worsened. I told him I would find a solution to the problem and would not be taking a deadly drug, although at the time I had no idea what the solution might be. Meantime, I’m still suffering from my swollen foot. I re-read the CT report and one word jumped out at me – “cuboid” which is a cube shaped bone located at the ankle! That for sure was an ‘ahha’ moment for me and I instinctively knew that it was my problem so with chiropractic adjustment and assistance from Linda Leeson, an Onsen therapist, the foot swelling was resolved within a week! However, I still had the osteopenia issue to deal with so Linda recommended that I see Donna Roth. Linda was confident that Donna could help me. I met with Donna who impressed and inspired me with her knowledge of an alternative method to achieve great health and her level of success in helping people, to not only restore their health but be better than they were before their illness/disease by committing to following her advice. I was ‘in” and wanted to know more so I could once again be well. I committed to the TAFYH program although I really did not comprehend that it was a 2 month commitment which seemed like a very long time and how would I manage with juggling my other commitments! But I had so many issues that needed to be addressed and I was sick and tired of being sick and tired so I shifted my mindset and stuck to it. It is, without a doubt, the best decision I ever made regarding my health. Several of my problems, such as bloating, poor quality of sleep, fatigue most of the day, poor circulation, sugar cravings, restless legs, chronic pain and inflammation, etc, have either been significantly reduced or eliminated by following specific guidelines.
I believe it was Divine intervention that, through a series of events, lead me to these knowledgeable and inspiring women and it was Divine intervention that kept me committed to the program.
My success story is a work in progress so I am unable to sign off yet. Stay tuned for further exciting updates.
