Complete Healing for Less than $600 a Year
Our reasons for going back to basics are as much about quality of life as they are about saving money. In the highly modernized, detached world in which we live, our desire for simplicity is crucial, especially when it comes to medicine.
Good health is essential for a happy, productive life, and yet what we need for that good health is as unique and personal as we are. Yet modern medicine insists on cramming us into cookie cutter medicine where harried doctors write a prescription for a symptom, and we never truly feel well.
That was the challenge I faced fourteen years ago, when I began to experience the symptoms of lupus.
My mother was diagnosed with lupus when I was eighteen years old. She began experiencing fatigue, along with neck and back pain. I watched her go from doctor to doctor, and I saw firsthand the helplessness she felt in the hands of modern medicine.
When I developed similar symptoms in my forties, I was determined to find another way. Eventually I learned about homeopathic medicine.
Unlike with conventional doctors, when a homeopath meets with you for the first time, he or she will spend an hour or more with you, asking questions not only about your symptoms, but about your personality, your likes and dislikes. That’s because our emotions and preferences tell as much about our illness as the more obvious symptoms.
Through this visit, and with follow-ups by phone, my homeopath was able to recommend medicine that brought about complete healing not only of my aches and fatigue, but also emotional healing as well. Fourteen years later, not only am I free of pain, but I also have energy, confidence and true joy I wouldn’t have thought possible back then.
If you are ready for complete healing and a brand new life, I highly recommend a homeopathic constitutional. It's one of the best investments you will ever make.
