As a naturopathic physician who has practiced intermittent fasting (IF) for the bulk of my adult life, I am uniquely positioned to speak both scientifically and anecdotally to intermittent fasting's profound benefits.
I haven't been thinking about death at all these days. I've been getting more motivated and less depressed, and don't look at everything like it's the end of the world. My family and friends also say that I'm more independent and less clingy / needy.
When I was first introduced to homeopathy by Dr Andy Somody, I was skeptical about treatment, thinking it may be something superstitious or spiritual. Nonetheless my curiosity prompted me to give it a try.
I was impressed when Dr. Andy was able to first improve and then cure my spitting of blood and aches in my neck and arms areas. These issues had been bothering me for several months (or even years) and had not responded to Western medicine, but were cured under Dr. Andy's treatment.
I've since realized homeopathy involves not just physical healing, but mental and emotional forms of healing as well. Unlike the regular doctor who usually sees one only through a physical model, visits to Dr Andy also helped me be in touch with my inner self, a part which I've left behind for years in this high-paced society.
I've become more at peace with myself, more calm, more patient and understanding as a human being.
I believe some sicknesses and diseases are emotional and not purely organic in nature. Homeopathy seems to address conditions where regular Western medicine cannot. It is drug-free and it treats the person as a whole being and not just a body part.
This is for those who are looking for a trust-worthy and responsible healthcare provider who sees people as individuals and not one of the masses, who gives customized good service irregardless of one’s financial status, beliefs or creed, a doctor who dedicates his life and stays committed to his calling even at the expense of his time and energy.
I do not give testimonies freely but I give credit when credit is due.
I was glad I took my first step towards homeopathy with Dr Andy Somody. Not only have I benefitted from it, on the lighter side, I’ve also found a new friend here in Vancouver.
Physically, I wasn’t sick in the sense of major disease or sickness. But if I was to keep going the way I was. I would have been for sure soon!
Being troubled with stomach issues for sometime, and having emotion issues I wasn’t even aware of.
Before I met Dr. Andy Somody, my journey first started at a walk in clinic, where I was put through some blood and stool test after a quick intake.
My test came back and I was told I have a parasite. I was put on antibiotics and it completely wiped me out. It wasn’t a pleasant experiences at all!
After all that, I still had painfully stomach issues. I guess it wasn’t the parasite. That upset me a lot to think I poisoned my body for no reason with drugs. I was then told that I had IBS.
After doing some research about IBS I thought it was time to get a second opinion. Why do western doctors just treat the “what” and not want to figure out the “why” so it wont happen again? The reason I went to the walk in clinic in the first place was because my family doctor was a drug pusher who really didn’t listen to me and made me stupid for not wanting to put drugs into my system.
I chose then to see Dr. Andy Somody.
I called him up made an appointment for the next Saturday.
I was very pleased that I didn’t need to take anymore time off work and that he was available on Saturday.
My first appointment reassured me that this was the right choice for me.
Andy listened to everything I said.
He asked me question, that I never I been asked before.
He provoked thoughts in me that I never even new existed in me.
My cure was a simple but profound one.
I was stressed out from work and I was going down the wrong path in life. The balance in my life was way off.
I am pleased to say that the pieces of my life are coming together and I’ve never been happier!
(which I never thought could happen, because I thought I was already happy.)
The pieces were always there in front of me - I just didn’t know what to do with them.
I owe Andy for helping me figuring it out, by opening my mind and spirit.
By listening and showing me love and compassion.
Andy has a true calling for naturopathic medicine.
Which has inspired me do what I love.
I am free of all pains and have learnt the ability to listen to my body for what needs it has at the time.
