This picture came up on FB memories recently. That’s me on the left. I had forgotten how thin I was then..!
At the time the picture was taken I weighed around 56kg. A year before, I had had a sudden drop of 10kg in 6 weeks, from a size 14 to a size 10. But I remained healthy-ish, or rather, nothing had changed in my health, although I’d had issues for some time.
I’m going to cut a very long story really short.
It took several years to work out that I had a compromised gut and immune system for a long time, and a year before this picture, one more antibiotic most likely caused this dramatic weight loss (though the NHS might dispute that).
I didn’t have tummy ache, and couldn’t feel intolerances for certain foods, so it wasn’t obvious. But I knew there was something wrong as I kept having other unexplained symptoms, and consulted with many practitioners including the NHS. I made only very small progress with any of them. But little by little I gained an understanding of the problem, and learnt to manage it.
I really wanted to put weight on, but found it impossible. I also really wanted to get healthier, but despite all efforts, I still had flares.
Until… I discovered Localised Cryostimulation
I had 8 sessions of localised cryostimulation on my abdomen, one per week.
By the end of the course, I could have kombucha (fermented tea probiotic), and gradually built up the amount from a teaspoon to half a cup. Simultaneously all other symptoms lessened in gravity and frequency, and most impressively, my health continued to improve long after the end of the course.
Two and a half years later, I am back at my normal weight, if not a little over. I still have to be careful with certain foods, but nothing much happens if I treat myself to a croissant… (or 2… except I will put on weight!)
That’s why I practise Localised Cryostimulation and CryoMassage now. I knew I’d found something so uniquely effective, natural and gentle, that I had to pursue it.
Thank you to Sharon Lomax who introduced me to cryo, and all my cryo colleagues for their amazing work!
