For the past 10 years I have struggled with allergies and chronic sinusitis. I had tried everything possible to alleviate the symptoms. Antihistamines, allergy shots for two years and nothing seemed to work. I had heard about Forever Healthy through a family member, I was skeptical but willing at that point to try anything.
I have been going to Forever Healthy for the past 3 years and I feel that Susan and her team have given me my life back. It’s been a very long road, but I am finally feeling like I did 10 years ago, full of energy and looking forward to facing the day. The holistic approach used at Forever Healthy deals not only with the issues that brought you to the clinic in first place but rather focuses on treating your whole body and mind to help achieve maximum results.
I want to thank Susan and her team for being such an important part of my life!!
At present I live in BC and was introduced to Forever Healthy by my daughter in law and started treatments on my trips home to the Island. This has been a life changing experience for me and I’m very thankful to all the staff at Forever Healthy for their love, compassion, understanding and knowledge of their work as well as to their clients! It has been my pleasure and privilege to have received the allergy treatments and the acupuncture by this professional team!!
When I arrived I was greeted by friendly members of the staff and then tested for 204 allergies or sensitivities …and I had 142 …so as you can see they had some work ahead of them, which they did in fine style!
Beside my many allergies that I have suffered for a number of years, I have a lung disease with scar tissue on my lungs, I’m a stoke victim, vertigo and have had many operations.
1. Carpal tunnel: I had a carpal tunnel operation done on my right hand leaving me with nerve damage and limited use of my right hand….I now have 50% improvement in the movement of my hand!!
2. Feathers: I could not even stay in a room with feather pillows…now I can sleep on them as well as be covered by a down comforter!!
3. Scented candles: All candles had to be removed before I could enter a room or I would have to leave…no longer the case!!
4. Cleaners and chemical: When traveling I always requested an environmental clean with no scents…..Request no longer needed!!
5. Latex: My skin would blister when touched …no reaction now!!
6. Clothing: I could not wear many fabrics in any comfort….not so now!!
7. Pollens, grasses, etc: They would affect my breathing, leaving me short of breathe and tired…no longer an issue!!
8. Scalp surgery: I had skin cancer on my scalp and Pat helped my through all the different steps of the surgery….quicker recovery!!
9. Metals: I would break out in a rash and blistered if I wore or had any other metals except yellow gold that touched my skin…..instant results, I can wear silver jewelry as well as work with other metals making jewelry now!!
These examples are just a few of the results from the allergy elimination and acupuncture that I experienced…..to my pleasure there are too many to mention!! I also believe there has been a boost to my immune system which of course helps in prevention of everything!
There is a huge difference in my quality of life!!
A extra special thanks to Tammy and Pat for working so closely with me, spending some time with me and sharing experiences!!!
The whole experience from the first time I phoned to explain my situation and book my first appointment with Wendy then testing with Lesley, then onto my treatments with Tammy and Pat was a complete pleasure!! I’m looking forward to seeing them all again on my next trip to PEI!!
There needs to be an award for Pat for putting such a fabulous team together!!
Thanks and Hats off to all of you!!
I first heard of Forever Healthy by word of mouth after talking with someone about my eczema and milk allergy (along with many other sensitivities). I was unable to drink milk for a number of years and the allergy seemed to be progressing where even a sip of milk would cause my body to react. So I thought it was worth checking out the allergy elimination at Forever Healthy.
After completing the basics, I was on to enjoy milk, ice cream, etc. with no reaction. Throughout this entire process, my husband and I were trying to start a family and we were not having much luck. Working with Pat, we completed a lot of emotional blockages, which was contributing to having difficulty conceiving.
I was on medication to help, however the medicine was also causing my body to react to the hormones and it became a cyclical pattern month after month. To help with the emotional work and the treatments helped level my body from its “roller coaster of hormones” and we focused on a fertility protocol to help boost our chances of conceiving (the next step was in vitro which we were in the process of scheduling). Needless to say, after completing the fertility protocol, we had success and we welcomed our baby boy in December 2013!
I’m so glad I had that initial conversation that led me to Forever Healthy.
Apples! Let’s start there. I love them, they are delicious and crunchy, I dream about them, I crave them …. but, I was not allowed to eat them! When I was 9 years old I suddenly had an anaphylactic reaction to an apple. I had eaten them without worry up until then. My doctor told me, after several different tests I had conducted at home, that I was allergic to a variety of fruits. No apples, pears, plums, peaches or a few other members of this family of fruit.
Eventually I got used to not being able to eat these fruits, to having to ask anyone who offered me a fruit salad “what is in there?” I detested asking though, it always felt rude and it made me realize how much I missed those fruits.
Twenty years later I found Forever Healthy. I came in for an initial consultation with Christine (who is fabulous by the way) and a couple days later I met with Julie and we were on our way. After completing my basic nutrients we started work on my apple allergy. We were able to clear the apple sensitivity and during the process it turned out that we cleared the whole gambit of other fruits I was allergic to! I am beyond happy to report that to date my favorite apple is ‘Granny Smith’ … which I eat at least one of a day.
Julie told me something in our first session I will never forget. She said “you don’t have to believe in this for it to work.” In case you aren’t a believer, give it a try anyway.
